  • Attack is decent.
  • It can get a Quick-Play Spell Card from your Graveyard and set it to your Spell & Trap Zone.


  • Defense is quite low which makes it susceptible to attacks when switched to defense position.
  • This card need to have 3 spell counters to be removed from it in order to use its effect.
  • You can't use its effect when your Spell & Trap Zone is full.
  • You can only use its effect once per turn.


Spell Counter

  • Magical Citadel of Endymion works well with any cards that uses Spell Counters since it has multiple effects that circles around Spell Counter. First, it gains a Spell Counter when a Spell is activated. Next is the Spell Counter(s) of a destroyed card can be transferred to it. Its best effect is when you activate a card effect by removing a Spell Counter(s) from your side of the field, you can remove that many Spell Counters from this card instead. This card won't be easily destroyed too, since it can just remove a spell counter instead when it's about to get destroyed.
  • Spell Power Grasp instantly gives Magical Something 2 Spell Counters since its effect can give it 1 and Magical Something gains 1 Spell Counter when a Spell Card resolves. It's also better if you have Magical Citadel of Endymion in your field when you activate it since it also gains Spell Counters from Spell Cards.

Quick-Play Spells

These cards would be the best Quick-Play Spell Cards that you could pair with Magical Something due to their versatility and deadly effects.

These card is literally named Magical Something since it was released a year ago, although if translated from Japanese it means "Magical Absorber". Maybe there are just too many Magical archetypes that resulted Konami to say fuck it to this card. Maybe later there will be a "Magical Whatever" card popping out.

This cards wording state that it gets a counter whenever a spell card is used and resolves... but this is only working for ones own spells atm, not opponents; other cards (citadel endymion) w/ same wording work when spells are played field wide

1st Anon: I kno Anons just LOVE penises, but plz, I'm not an Anon so keep those to yourselves. 2nd: I know this as well, but really truly; there are FAR worse names, this card is ACTUALLY a new one to Spell Counters & not rehash, and lastly, it just really doesn't matter in the long run...

Agreed, "Something" is the most creative name I've ever seen.

If you say so...
I'm curious how the level thing will be useful utility wise in the future. Only cards that matter currently would be ritual cards, aside from a few one off spell/trap cards that don't have much use in the current meta anyway

On TCG they stopped producing LVs because they were not viable in the end. Im guessing the same will happen to DuelLinks in the future.

He's not talking about lvl monsters, he's talking about the counters on this card increase it's level. This card's level increase effect might be handy for synchros when they come.

Oh GOD this Something + Magical Citadel deck = Infinite Econ loop
Who says Konami doesn't have a sense of humor
Yeah, it's SOMETHING alright
this +1 spell counter triggers beatdown, it might be interesting or at least fun to try it.
