When this card is Normal Summoned: You can add 1 Spell/Trap Card from your Deck to your hand, that specifically lists the card "Dark Magician" in its text. During your opponent's turn, if you activate a Spell/Trap Card or effect while this card is in your Graveyard (except during the Damage Step): You can Tribute 1 Spellcaster-Type monster; add this card to your hand. You can only use each effect of "Magician's Rod" once per turn.

  • Able to get Dark Magician support spell/trap cards from your deck.
  • Can return to your hand from the graveyard.


  • Needs to be normal summoned for its effect to activate.
  • Effect can only get the cards from the deck, which can be bad if you only have a few and get them in your starting hand.
  • Second effect requires a tribute of a spellcaster-type monster to return to your hand.


Monster or Spell/Trap removal

Magician's Rod gives you many options as to which one to take, and you get to decide which one you need for certain situations. This also helps with getting Dark Magic Attack more consistently, since you can only get 1 copy from Yami Yugi's level up reward.


While a Dark Magician turbo deck can already work well on its own, you can still play with its variances through these support cards. They have different playstyles that are useful in certain situations. Dedication through Light and Darkness can be used as a surprise during battle phase to get an extra attack, Sage's Stone can help with swarming the field, while Knight's Title can be good if your Dark Magician is locked or affected with a attack decreasing debuff.

Spellcaster tribute

You can use Magician's Rod's second effect to return it to your hand by tributing these monsters. They have effects that will activate in the graveyard, and will also help with searching a Dark Magician from your deck/graveyard.

Not that I think about it, I haven't seen that card around so far
Can it search dark burning attack?

It cannot. Dark Burning Attack lists "Dark Magician Girl", while this card specifically asks for just "Dark Magician".

If it is Dark Burning Magic then yes it can, since Dark Burning Magic also specifically listed "Dark Magician" in its text.

But we don't have Dark Burning Magic yet in DL :p

It "disappeared" inside the girlfriend.
That guy trying to be insulting with the 'disappear' comment is just a moron.
Very good card, allows you to effortlessly fetch thousand knives, dark magic attack and curtain even if you only run one copy in the deck.
How do I get it?
