Unnerf Dark Magician
You still can use this skill with DM, just use Magician's Robe in place of Rod, discarding a spell/trap to summon a DM from deck and banish with circle.

Replace rod with dwarf the star planeteer dragon and your are ready.
Robe is a really slow card to be honest...

This skill still works perfectly fine in my Superheavy Samurai deck. My main deck consists of 100% monsters and my starting hand is always reflecting this. And I can even special summon in the first turn.

Konami plz un nerf this skill.
This is technically the only not anime deck consistency skill, and you can't even choose your starting hand TBH. It just... random

No! guaranteed 1 monster, 1 spell & 1 trap is already broken in any card game. For any TCG player, this is consider cheating.

This isn't TCG.
Bring your TCG player somewhere else like pojo.
Why would you play DL if it was exactly the same with TCG?

"You cannot Special Summon or activate monster effects until the end of the Main Phase of your first turn."


Konami didn't implement this when they nerfed Duel Standby, so that people abuse Amano Iwato.
Very clever.

"Still cant get how triamids still activate their effects in main phase 1 although they uss balance."

Did you mean Triamid Hunter? Its extra normal summon is continuous, not an activated effect.
On the other hand, with balance skill, Triamid Dancer cannot activate its effect during 1st turn.

same goes with aromages.
Extra normal summon from Jasmine is still possible, while the other aromages can't activate their effects.

Now nobody is willing to play this skill anymore. 🔥ing humans just refuse to stop using broken effects on first turn.

Someone can probably still use it. My bet would be on Triamids if they can wait a turn, and maybe Gladiator Beasts. Cloudians just flat out will not care other than not using Zeradias, so they could work as well.

Always use Balance with Yugi, even at KOG level sometimes your opponents will forget that you activated Balance already and refrain from dealing over 2000 damage to you lol
