  • Protects your Spellcaster monsters from destruction.
  • Good defense.


  • Spell counters are usually slow to gain.


Magical Citadel of Endymion

Magical Citadel of Endymion gains Spell Counters whenever a Spell Card is activated which can fuel Defender’s effect. Additionally when card with Spell Counters is destroyed, the Spell Counters on that card are transferred to Magical Citadel of Endymion. Magical Citadel of Endymion even has an innate protection effect which protects it from being destroyed by removing one Spell Counter.

Gain Spell Counters

Use these cards to put Spell Counters on Magical Citadel of Endymion which fuels the effect of any card that uses Spell counters including Defender, the Magical Knight.

Passive Gaining

These cards have effects that put Spell Counters on themselves when another action is performed.(Usually a when a Spell card is activated.) Defender, the Magical Knight can remove Spell counters from anywhere on the field to protect your Spellcaster monsters.

Legendary Flame Magician

If you have enough Spell Counters on the field you can use Legendary Flame Magician to wipe the board while Defender, the Magical Knight protects your monsters from Legendary Flame Magician’s effect.

Magician’s Circle

When your Spellcaster monster battles, you can activate Magician’s Circle to special summon Defender, the Magical Knight from your deck and instantly protect your Spellcaster monsters. Provided that there are Spell counters already present on the field.

This guy doesn't care about Reactor Dragon's effect. You can still remove counters and protect your monsters.
Can the effect of this card prevent be destroyed by the efecct of yubel? because it happening to me while i just needed to survive one turn to summon my arcanite magician and then destroy any yubel or his evolutions that my rival put in game because i have a combo to have 6 spell counters, but as i say, at the end of his turn, and while i have a spell counter in my defender, it just get destroyed withoout let me do anything.
sorry for my bad english
This card wouldn't be too broken if released. Only for spellcaster, not to mention if you try to save a weak attack spellcaster you risk your lifepoints from getting damaged

Not if you use this card in conjunction with breaker. It'll protect breaker from order to charge and mikirzuri. And you will have a 1900 beat stick on the field with its spell counter still. You can also use it to save the OTK karate man combo

It really is, I'm about to hit KoG with a magician deck.
This card will just make Spellbooks even more obnoxious to play against. Guaranteed to reach turn 40 every game :/
