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.

Pretty sure Kagemusha of the Blue Flame can't either (correct me if I'm wrong), but he's in the game.

This guy was always competitive, only noobs think you need HEAVY support in order to climb the ladder or compete at small tournaments

they are top tier thanks to navigation tho
So lame that spellcasters have not received any support what so ever. They haven’t even had a mainbox centered around spellcaster archetype like other archetypes have received. Every box that dropped for spellcasters have been mini boxes with half ass support cards and cards that you would use to support other archetypes. IMO every box they should add should be spellcaster support for the next 1 year.

The spellbooks cards came from a mini box. My point is they haven’t received a main box. If you look at every single spellcaster box we have received you will find them in a mini box. Archetypes for spellcasters is scattered between numerous boxes. This is totally true and you know it.

Also think back all the way to when they released dark magician of chaos. His only support was him and dedication through darkness and light when there are numerous other cards to support him

I don't think Konami will offer another original art soon. I've been playing for1.5 years and I got that when i started few months.. many who playing from release even got 3 of original and prismatic too.. the special ticket i had was no prismatic but it gave me the original art for dm
They should add magician’s right and left hand to help fight these new meta decks that run continuous spells and trap

ull get the gagaga archetype in 4 months
There is some merit to this last post. Spellbooks was a mini box, not a main box. Yea it dominated the meta a little while, but I think they could have added something way better. For starters some decent dark magician support. Spellbooks were just not my style, I found it boring. Universal spellcaster support is long over do, like dark renewal for example. It is beyond me why this card has not been released yet.
Give us the dark sides of dimensions art!!!
They need to stop thinking of how strong dmg would be if they released all his support cards, they weren’t thinking’s about a balanced game when they released six sams lol
Why does it seem like Konami enjoys bricking every spellcaster deck they make for duel links
Seriously it’s time to add some broken cards for dark magician they have been getting the short of the stick for crying out loud
Skilled players like Playmaker could reach kog with Dark Magician any day, (just like the dude reached kog with Aromages) Only n00bs complain about this deck and call it "bad", imagine they would give enough support to it, all the blue-eyes players who are stupidly FANATICAL about archetypes would complain day and night. That's why fanatic way of thinking is always lame.
