Disables your opponent from using all quick-play spell cards, which are commonly used in many decks.
High level monster that requires 2 tributes, or some investment to special summon.
Disabling your opponent's quick-play will mean that your opponents can only activate traps when you are attacking, or sphere kuriboh. Bring cards like Trap Jammer, Seven Tools of the Bandit, or Overwhelm to make sure that your attack will go through.

Summoning a normal monster together with this spell usually means safety ensured, no matter how low their attack is. Summoning Invader of Darkness will definitely shut down a normal monster deck, just be aware and not attack carelessly since most people still use Mirror Wall.
Used to lower a monster's attack, or make sure they survive, this card can be activated in both players' turn and also on the damage step. Using Invader of Darkness will prevent your opponent from being able to use this.

Magician Circle is not very reliable since it requires many stuff
1- Be set the turn before (as any trap)
2- An spellcaster declares an attack
3- Both player must have an open space to summon a 2000 atk or lower spellcaster (even if they dont have any in their deck)
So if the other player has 3 monsters in the field you can't use magician circle
