Pros

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

Cons

  • 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.

Tips

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.

Variances

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.

I’d rather have two Navigations than 2 magicians rods. This deck just seems slower and can’t compete now. It’s like have to play yami yugi with destiny draw to get rod to save my ass. Come in Konami that’s a low blow and you know it...

You're willing to grind even more? I need 5 more URs that can't be gotten with tickets as far as I know.

Why is it when I try to play with 2 or/and 3 copys it tells me I cant because I can play with 3 cards?

You can only add 3 cards with the "3" icon, any combination you want but no more than 3 of those cards in the same deck.

If Magician's Rod is changed to face-down defense position with Floodgate trap hole, I can still get one spell or trap card from my deck. Why is that? I thought, after the new update that the card should remain face up to resolve the effect. Is anyone able to explain this? Thanks!

There is no such update. Read the rule update again:

Thanks for the helpful link. The rule clearly states that the card must remain in the Monster zone, there is no difference whether face up or face down. Thanks again.

Why I can't add Eye Of Timaeus with it's effect?

Because it doesn't list the specific card "Dark Magician" in it's name. It only lists a "Dark Magician" monster
