If I understand correctly, if your opponent doesn't even have a spellcaster in the deck then this card can't even be activated?

Can be combo-ed with cards that require you guess your opponent's monster type I guess.

Nope. This card can be activated regardless when your spellcaster attacks. If your opponent doesn’t have any, then it’s a free summon during the battle phase for you

In that case why isn't everyone using this card?

Good spellcasters like Verre could be summoned in any deck thanks to this.

Is there any other good Spellcasters this card can summon?
Any idea if this works with fortune ladies? I'm not sure if it would as there attack technically has a value of ? If it does I was thinking of some decent combos.

It doesn't, exactly because of the "?" ATK.
We really need the real Dark Magical Circle :)

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

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.

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
