It's not even that broken, so yeah, Konami should release it in DL, even if just 1 copy.

Lots of dumb spam in this page, maybe they should DISABLE comments for REAL bruh
Not that good especially because there is not much dark magician support, at least not right now. But yep, it can work well with DMG and burning attack.

DMG alone is still good, Ive seen some cool decks with here + dark burning attack and it's actually pretty competitive for a meme deck
Why not put this in a GraveKeeper deck?

By the way, if the opponent has all monster zone filled, you can't use magician's circle.

Yes you can its best when they don't have a spellcaster type in their deck great advantage especially combined with magicians unite in the same turn!

The card text makes the special summon mandatory for both players, so if one player doesnt have a monster zone available the card cant be activated. Why youre able to summon a monster if the opponent has no monster to summon is beyond me, but whatever. Text should be "each player CAN" which would make it optional
I noticed that magician's circle doesn't work when I attack with a just summoned spellcaster monster, even if magician's circle was already set turns before. i.e: 1st turn I set magician's circle and summon gravekeeper's recruiter; 2nd turn I tribute summon gravekeeper's oracle and attack with him, trap card doesn't activate; 3rd turn I attack with oracle and trap card works. Is it meant to work like that?

It works,the only issue is that you and your enemy need room to summon an extra monster, and be sure to wait a turn lol, no traps works in the turn they are set
This card was perfect in my gk deck till i notice the issues in it, but still viable in tribute decks.

DO NOT set 2 circles in the same turn.

1. When the 1. circle has been activated you...
... cant chain the 2nd.
... cant activate the 2nd when you attack with another card.

2. The 2nd circle cant be activated later in the duel....
