  • Special Summons itself for no cost.
  • Can double its own attack.
  • Floats into Dark Magician.


  • Does not work with most Dark Magician support.
  • Getting him in your starting hand can leave him stuck there.
  • Attack boost only works against DARK monsters.


Attribute Change

DNA Transplant changes all monsters on the field to DARK attribute so that Palladium Oracle Mahad can double his attack no matter what he battles. Aside from DNA Transplant there are also some other less efficient attribute changing effects such as Scroll of Bewitchment and the Genex Ally cards.

Top Deck

Here are some cards that can put Palladium Oracle Mahad at the top of your deck for you to draw and Special Summon.

Dark Magician

Summon this monster when Palladium Oracle Mahad is destroyed. Dark Magician himself is not a good monster, what makes him good is the tons of support that comes with him.

Can Timaues trigger Mahad's effect in special summoning DM, by using it as cost in special summoning Timaues?

You cannot use Mahad as a cost
If you use something like drop off during the draw does it die without getting a chance if it is during their reveal effect? Causing a 2× chain with drop off going first?
can this card summon toon dark magician when it destroyed.

No, since it says "Dark Magician", not "Dark Magician monster".

"Dark Magician" here is referred as that specific card, the vanilla monster, not as an archetype.
I like using Yami Yugi's skill Destiny Draw to get this guy out

Destiny Draw doesn't add the card to your hand it places it on top of your deck then you draw it normally

Same. Now if only her artwork actually, you know, features MANA, instead of a Tea-lookalike.

Yeah I never get their choice for PO Mana's artwork.
Sometimes autoduel AI doesn't play this card when drawn

the special summon from hand has a lower activation priority if you opponent's deck contains more main-box UR than yours.

Maybe this is what happened to you.

Auto duel, that's your issue.

Auto Duel AI is crap. It's an optional effect, so the AI is not forced to summon Mahad, and sometimes, it chooses not to.

Never knew there was activation priorities in this game. Thanks for letting me know that Ultra Rare have less trouble activating if they come from main boxes.

I had lost games out of nowhere by a lucky attack on a dark monster. Hate this card. I still remember before some months when I was in 4 win streak to kog and my opponent top decked it and just run over a magician rod I had face up on the field and had over 2000 lp and a dark cavarly. Still seeing nightmares.

Do you use A Trick Up the Sleeve or other skills that prevent you from special summoning?
If a dark meta deck Arise this will see play in the best character that can use it. Yamiu yugi with his skill destiny draw.
can i trigger mahad's effect when using magic mallet? say returning 3 mahad and getting like 2 or 3 of them back? can i summon more than 1?
Why doesn't it get summoned when I draw it using Solar Recharge?

It's a "When....You Can" effect, so the draw has to be the last thing to happen.

Solar Recharge has milling effect happening after the draw, so Mahad's effect misses the timing.

konami needs to make a card that allows you to special summon this guy from your hand for the poor souls that get him in the opening hand.

We don't want any of your Tony Stark life lesson here.
He was a miserable man whose only purpose was to teach: all deep pocketed boys are good guys and we should mourn their deaths no matter what, even the horrible ones.
So wrong in many ways.

I think most people who play DL knows that Tony Stark is a fraud anyway.

No, it's in the same row, so it's 44th. Don't ask why, as I dunno either.
The only thing dark magician needs is magicians soul in duel links and a decent skill maybe
