  • Has a decent stats for a monster that requires no tribute. A 1900 beater along with Field Spell Yami.
  • It can Special Summon a monster from your Hand or Graveyard.


  • There are a lot of monsters that can surpass its defense which makes it an easy target when switched to defense position.
  • It can only Special Summon a monster if this card has a Spell Counter that it can remove equal to the level of the monster to be summoned.
  • Only Spellcaster-Type monsters can be special summoned by its effect.


Speed up the addition of Spell Counter

Besides from using Spell Cards, you can use these cards to speed up the addition of Spell Counters to Magical Exemplar. Use these cards so Magical Exemplar can Special Summon high level Spellcaster-Type monsters quickly.

No... don't just keep it, play it using this deck.
It's a pretty decent one.
See it for yourself, Dlv 25, undefeated!

It's one of the coolest waifu cards btw, too bad spell counters are not very competitive right now, buy maybe in the future. I believe they don't give us too many complex decks because the world is having some kind of intelligence crisis thanks to tv and pew-diepie

Run with Spellbooks and you can easily summon high lvl spellcaster in your hand after 1 or 2 turns
Need royal magical library, summoner monk and tempest magician to make spellcounter deck great again
if only we had a spellcaster tuner

Tuned Magician, but it is a gemini.

We have 4 of them, though. (5 if you count Tuned Magician.) Just that 3 of them are Level 1, and the other doesn't use materials on the field.

I forgot we didn't have Night's End Sorcerer or Frequency Magician yet. Also, I'd expect we'll get Flamvell Magician and Arcane Apprentice sooner rather than later.

Thanks to duel challenges now I see a great potential in this card. At first I was like meh... too slow, but since we have the tricky and every spell puts 2 counters on it, I think it's decent enough.
Works well with relinq
Keep in mind there is an annoying glitch with this card in duel links.

Even though it says you can special summon from your hand, you cannot.

You can only special summon from the graveyard if the ritual monster you are summoning has already been properly summoned using its appropriate spell card.

that is not a bug, you can not special summon a ritual monster if it has not been ritual summoned first. Hence, it works from the graveyard.

does the effect work to summon ritual monsters? like play exemplar, play a spell, summon relinq with exemplars effect?

Yes but you need to properly ritual summon the relinquished first.

that woulda been sick to instant summon relinq without the ritual card, but it would be too op
Hmm... This could be a useful card for a spell counter based-deck.

It's actually one of the main cards in the 2nd main Spellcaster theme starter deck. & with Her master Endymion and his field spell, they can do damage.

Spell counter FTK used to use 2-3 of this.
This card had its day irl.
Not OP. It has low survivability. So anything you'd want to SS would have to be done that turn. Two spells in one turn isn't so bad for a lvl 4, but if you want something big, better have a good combo ready.

1700 atk is not low survivability and you can use e-con to protect her and use her effect next turn...
this is awesome to use with endymion and magic citadel of endymion, use 2 spell cards, destroy this card and you'll have 6 spell counters in magic citadel so you can summon endymion from your hand or graveyard and return one of your spell cards from de grave. it's awesome!
İts OP

And yet, I bet you won't because it'll throw off your deck balance. No one puts Exemplar on GK.

I would rather draw into my recruiter instead of this, in gk you want to go fast, this is a slow card, need to active 2 spells to special sumon 1 recruiter or priestess, lmao not useful on gk at all, but maybe with the new spellcaster structured deck

Which was exactly my point of why you SHOULDN'T put this card in a GK deck. -_-
