Tips, related cards, skills

Dark Magician Girl

This card can be used to special summon Dark Magician from either your hand or your deck with the help of Sage's Stone.

Sage's Stone

This card is relatively useful in special summoning Dark Magician as long as you have a faced up Dark Magician Girl.

Thousand Knives

Once Dark Magician was special summoned or normal summoned you can easily destroy a monster from your opponent's side of the field, either faced down or faced up.

Dark Magic Attack

Clear your opponent's Trap/Spell zone easily after summoning Dark Magician with the use of this card.

Magic Formula

Boosting your Dark Magician's attack by 700, now you can beat even Blue-Eyes White Dragon head on. Once this card is sent to the graveyard a bonus of 1000LP recovery will apply.

Does anyone know why the original artwork doesn't trigger Arkana's Ult summon effect? Cause it just makes no sense to me its not like arkana dark magician is somehow different its still the same monster

You mean the signature monster summon animation?

The crimson Dark Magician actually has a different look, and has its own summoning animation.

In the real life (OCG/TCG) game, the crimson Dark Magician even has a different passcode number on the lower left side of the card, despite being Dark Magician as well.

You can get the classic Dark magician from a UR ticket in this GX event, I saw it yesterday. And if its through the ticket its probably possible to get a UR ticket from ranked and get it that way as well if u miss this event as well

I want to know if there is other alternative way to get the alternate artwork version of Dark Magician. I've played since March, only got prismatic DM and BEWD but no alternate artwork versions. :(

You could only get one as a gift when you first got the game, Same goes for Blue eyes, there is no other way to get alternate artwork versions

I traded the original DM for some gold to get Obnoxious Celectic Guard
Another version is coming, I suppose? Since Arkana/Pandora is rumoured to come to Duel Links next week.

It isn't. The first limited card ever is Restructer. Don't believe everything you hear on the internet unless it's official.
