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.

Well, that's kinda unfair for players who sign up between the mentioned time. I began to play on March and I didn't get the alternate artwork :(

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
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.

Well, turned out it was right after all.
Even I have 3x DM I always wanted this dude so bad. Drops please cooperate.
Bad news for 3SD users out there. DM's may be going limited soon.

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?
