Overview

The main play of this deck is simply to summon Dark Magician and then upgrade into Dark Magician of Chaos. The skill and almost every other card in this deck is to support their summoning.

How to use

Main Monsters

You can make a deck that's more focused on trying to summon Dark Magician of Chaos (DMoC) depending on the number of copies that you have. Having fewer can still be good since you can use it together with Dark Magician, or even Dark Magician Girl. With only a few monsters on the deck, Legion the Fiend Jester will be used to get Dark Magician from your deck. Use Ancient Rules, or Paradox Brother's skill "Three Star Demotion" to get Dark Magician out to the field easily. If it gets destroyed, Birthright can revive him, or Dedication through Light and Darkness to protect him from being targeted by your opponent's card effects.

Spell Supports

Enemy Controller alone can already be good for protection, but it also lets you make quick plays if you already have the other supporting spells.

  • Summon Legion the Fiend Jester, Enemy Controller to take control of your opponent's monster. This lets you pick up a Dark Magician from your deck. Use Ancient Rules to summon Dark Magician. If you have Dedication through Light and Darkness, then you can attack 3 times to potentially end the duel.

  • If you also have a DMoC in your hand, then you can go for a more safer play by summoning Legion, use Ancient Rules to get Dark Magician, then tribute summon into Dark Magician of Chaos through Legion's effect. Alternatively, you can use Enemy Controller to take control of your opponent's monster by tributing your monster other than Legion before tribute summoning into DMoC. This will let you bring back your Enemy Controller during your end phase, but you will not be able to set it right away. This is safer than the first option if you are unsure about your opponent's set spell/trap cards, since your opponent's monsters are tributed away, they won't return to your opponent.

Quick Attacks

Using a combination of Birthright and Dedication through Light and Darkness, you can essentially attack up to 3 times or more in a turn. This strategy allows you to attack your opponent unexpectedly, which is good to use once you know your opponent can't stop your attacks, and if you can end the duel if you do it. Use any monster that you have to attack and check for your opponent's backrow, if they don't have anything then activate Birthright and special summon your Dark Magician, then Dedication through Light and Darkness into DMoC for another attack.

I have recently found one-shot wand works perfectly for legion/Dark magician decks. Gives enough ATT (+800) on Legion Jester & Magicians Rod to scare off attackers from easy momentum-draining kills, plus the draw effect from one-shot can be great for speeding up deck draw, which is a big issue for Dark Magician decks in DuelLinks. The +800 ATT is also really helpful for situations where you're able to get DMoC or DM out, but your opponents monsters are stronger (most meta decks). I'm also running 2x Wall of Disruption which has been really effective in balancing out the low attack power from Legion + MR, and Anti-Magic Arrow's which in combination of the decks ability to easily special summon DM.DMoC is able to one-turn KO very often.

Was able to get to lvl.20 KC with Arcana + Master of Magician. If anyone's interested I can post the deck. The only problem I've come across is Trap/Draw meta... Can't stand deck-out strategies. >_>

Just saw this now. So basically without using 3 star demotion you can use peten the dark clown to lock.your blocks which will gibe you an opening for legion the fiend jester to bring in the dmoc. Anti magic arrows, dark magic attack, and viable traps. What i do suggest is a fusion deck for dark paladin. Those dont play around

Is this dick even viable?

AoD (if you really really want to build either Daedalus or DMoC deck, i'll prefer Daedalus first). But if you want to play using more competitive deck, Ancient Gear could be a good choice for new players
