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 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. :(
