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.

Which GX event?
Would they ever consider adding some dark magician synchros? Cause as it stands spellcaster synchros are pretty much lacking in this game except maybe fortune lady.

Yea but there are synchro dark magician cards on google search? Not sure if they are fan made or official though. Also general spellcaster synchros are missing in this game, would be nice to add some to this game.

synchro Dark Magician cards are all fanmade.

Dark Magician ones, that is, not just lookalike ones like Explosive Magician and Arcanite Magician. Those two are real.

Or just general support to spellcasters, arcanite and explosive magician are lame. Not enough spell counter support.
How do I get the Alternate Art work if I have missed the campaign?

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

Amusingly enough, this card is never used against Chaos Max.

Yugi (the little one, not Atem) defeated Chaos Max using the Magician Girls.
Seriously why do they keep adding worthless support to spellcasters

pack filler
Lol why does it seem like whenever they add spellcaster support they add some other support to another archetype other than spellcasters to make it even better. #hashtag make spellcasters great again
More support please, still not not enough to make it viable. Eternal souls please, need better protection
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 🔥 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
