You can only each effect once per turn..
Does that mean you can search dark magician monster/spell next turn after its activation?
<< Anonymous

you can banish 1 card once per turn. the first effect applies only for activation. maximize banish effect, navigation our end turn then summon dark cavalry, activate dark magician (that 2100 attack) effect, special summon dark magician from Grave

No you cannot activate two different Сircles in one turn if you have two copies in your hand. And you can banish as many times as many Dark magicians you summon to the field

Do you guys think this card will still be used in a future optimal dark magician deck if we get apprentice illusion magic or secrets of dark magic?

Yes, this will keep seeing play.

The only card I think could be used at less copies is navigation, if konami releases eternal soul

this card is broken af. combine with magicians wand and navigation, boom, you win. but ofc konami want to suck some money first before they nerf it in honor to the new (2021) blue eyes deck

This card and magician navigation need to be banned straight away. If the one that goes second doesn't draw a card with backrow removal effect, it is then basically an automatic win to the one that goes first. The whole combo is just broken.

We had navigation for years in duel links and none used dm decks. If they limit it they will just 🔥 the deck. Circle is what makes dm competitive. And atm are not even tiered.

3 Circles, 3 Navi, Kycoo everything standard. Even with a perfect start, this was not enough in most duels.
When I managed to summon the purple horse it was a little better, but my Magicians rarely survived before I draw the spell

Maye you should have had 3 cards to summon purple horse in this case.

This card needs to be limited. In the KC cup I faced 4 DM decks back to back & a lot of them had a least 2. The DM decks stopped me from getting to stage 2

Well dm suffer from the same major drawback as the old desperado decks. Target immunity. Once your oppenent realise is facing a dm deck he will assap summon a sabredancer, cocytus, es lapauila etc. leaving you hoping to draw eye of timeus or dm expanded, if you run them. Also, lightsworn variants force you to use navigation in the main phase to stop lumina-brd, leaving dm helpless in battle phase.

I think you got a misconception about being bricky.
From your explanation, DM had a hard time to face certain archtype. And thats normal for deck to have a natural weakness. However, being bricky means you cant do anything other than watching your opponent as you cant even play your card ( ex: blue eyes brick dragon). A deck with huge change for being bricky wont get tiered in the first place.

Blue-Eyes isn't always bricky, it depends on your build.

Why doesn't this card miss timing?

It's okay :)

The guy who misplayed against DMC would have known that it couldn't miss timing if he played with a DM deck before.

Not using a deck yourself means losing games you could have otherwise won against it by avoiding miss play.

That is why we are more skilled than you F2P.

This is actually easy. See if your opponent has 3 copies of the latest UR/SR, or those that come from different old boxes.
Alternatively if they have full meta deck of 3 very different archetypes.

I have 2 out of 3 copies.

Also have 2 out of 3 copies of Navigation.

I'm just about done for those Core Cards.

What?
Did you just called a 80% FTK AND hand balanced for dark Magician?

You mean balanced because its cards are limited by money?

Dark magician needs 0 money to be completed. I am f2p player and made it 100% complete within 1 month. Only need 3runs of 1 main box and 1 MINI nox to complete it. ALL the other cards are free in game. Just farm and do a good gem management.

1st account. I got my 1st circle in the 18th pack and my second after around 40 packs. The 3rd one came after around 70 packs so i helieve it was fair. Got each of my 3 navigations in the first 30-40 packs. Around 14000gems, which is easily possible.

Yep, 14000 gems is doable using just 1 account only.

`You can only use each effect of "Dark Magical Circle" once per turn.`
Card is bugged, in case it gets negated and you didn't use any of its effects, it still does not let you activate a second copy.
<< Anonymous(v)
Anonymous Reply
Not bugged, since it's "use", not "activate".

Yes, there's a difference.

According to OPT ruling, if a card states "use", and either its activation or effect is negated, you cannot activate it once again.
