  • Able to look at the top 3 cards of your deck and arrange them in any order.
  • Can add a Dark Magician, or a Dark Magician spell/trap if it's in the top 3 card.
  • Summoning a Dark Magician lets you banish a card your opponent controls.


  • Only able to add to your hand a card that is related to Dark Magician.


DM monster supports

Search for Dark Magician's spell/trap cards from your deck by using Magician's Rod, including Dark Magical Circle, which can be used right away for a potential +1 if there's a card related to Dark Magician, or to simply re-arrange the top 3 card of your deck. Alternatively, you can summon Magician's Rod to get Illusion Magic from your deck to draw 2 DM from your deck, then you can use A Hero Emerges to special summon one of them.

Legion the Fiend Jester helps with tribute summoning for your DM so that you can activate Dark Magical Circle's second effect. Use Dark Magic Curtain to summon a DM from your deck and banish a card. If it survives for another turn, then you can normal summon Fiend Jester and go into another DM to banish another card your opponent controls.

DM spells

Dark Magical Circle is best used in a deck mainly focused on Dark Magician. There are already several support spells that it can be used with, and it provides some versatility in the deck, but it's better not to include everything since it can be a dead card in your hand if you don't have a DM on your field. You can also use Arkana's Master of Magicians skill instead of having to bring different ones in your deck.

Does anyone know if you have to shuffle your deck after looking at the top 3 cards even if you don’t add a card to your hand? Had this come up mid game and wanted clarification, thanks

Dark Magical Circle will never shuffle your Deck.

Also, why are you asking here, the card isn't obtainable in Duel Links.
I'm not understanding the first effect on the card. Can you look at the top 3 cards every turn its on the field or just the first turn it was placed on the field? The official Konami article on this card seems to be vague on answering my question. "Dark Magical Circle is a new Continuous Spell Card with two separate effects, each of which can be used once per turn."

The first effect only applies when the card is activated.

The OPT restriction simply means you cannot, in the same turn, activate another copy and activate the first effect again.

Thanks for clarifying that. Now that I think about, it would be a little overpowered if that part of the effect can be activated every turn. It would essentially be a Pot of Duality for DM decks, and other decks could have better control of their draws even if they don't play DM.
