  • 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.



Spellbook cards are great at supporting Spellcaster monsters, and activating them also increases the number of spell counters on Magical Something. These spell counters in turn can be used to retrieve your Spellbook cards from the graveyard. Spellbooks (i.e. Spellbook of Power, Spellbook of Secrets, Spellbook of Eternity) that fetch other Spellbooks are great for increasing spell counters.

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.
  • Endymion the Master Magician can be special summoned by removing counters from Magical Citadel of Endymion and retrieve a spell card from the graveyard. You can then discard spell cards to destroy cards on the field. The discarded spells can be retrieved by Magical Something.
  • 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.

any good idea to run this with spellbook?
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

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.

I mean, they abanoned every form of level increase because it was too slow. But for now, let us savor this update before XYZ reks the meta

There's an Xyz that takes 2 Level 6 Spellcasters as material - not the easiest thing due to how low the number of Level 6 Spellcasters in the game.

This card somewhat alleviate the problem, I guess, since it can make itself Level 6.
how lazy where they when they named this card?

The Japanese name is "マジックアブソーバー" which translates to " Magic Absorber" so yeah, they are f****g lazy.

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 it to this card. Maybe later there will be a "Magical Whatever" card popping out.

Yes english name sounds oddly strange.
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
Got it. My Citadel deck is complete. I figure one should be enough.
