Rating 8 / 10

2500 ATK is not high enough as a level 7 monster that requires two tributes to be summoned. You need to build a deck that contains Dark Magician support cards to put the monster into practical use.

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.

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

No, its not "unfair" its just unfortunate lol. You still have a Dark Magician, no need to cry foul for something free
Wooow!!! i want to say this from the bottom of my heart that there is still a real spell caster, i never believed there is still a great man like Dr Ogundele, he cast a spell for me today am happy, he made me who i am now, i have been suffering for 6 years without kids of my own and my family was not settle, issues everyday, my husband left me to suffer, until last year when i met a friend who directed me to Dr Ogundele, and i encouraged my self to contact him and he gave me his word which i doubted him at first, he told me that everything will fall back after his spell cast, not less than 2 days my husband came begging me on his knees, and this is the most miraculous, am happy to inform you that i have my son to call me mummy, and my business is moving fine people favor me everywhere i go, i will continue to publish your good work Dr. Here is his contact for the usefulness of those who need help like me before, he can cast a spell on any of your problem. His You can contact him now and get your problem resolved Cell:+27618920352

If you his name in halv take the second part of his name along with the first 2 letters of "temple" you get "Delete" Coincidence? I think not.
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.
Limiting DM becuase of new card? Seriously? Nvm I quit. GLHF guys.

Don't quit you idiot, it was just a rumor DM was never limited.
Hey, is it safe to convert this card? Keeping one should be fine? Have not found a deck yet that uses more than one of these.

General question: which UR cards are safe to convert? Seems Dark Magician is one of the only ones?
