1 Tuner + 1 or more non-Tuner Spellcaster-Type monsters

  • Gains attack indefinitely.
  • Destroys your opponent’s card. (Not once per turn.)


  • Weak base stats. Can gain attack from Spell counters, but makes him weak to effect negation.



Discards The Fabled Cerburrel to special summon The Tricky. The discarded Cerburrel will then be special summoned via its own effect and you can use both monsters to Syncrho summon. Arcanite Magician only requires the non-Tuner material to be a Spellcaster so using a non-Spellcaster Tuner monster, like Cerburrel, would be fine.

Gain Spell Counters

Use these cards to put Spell Counters on Arcanite Magician which boosts his attack and lets him destroy more of your opponent’s cards. Spell Power Grasp will help thin your deck aside from adding Spell Counters, but you can only use one each turn. Crusader of Endymion boosts his own attack when he gives a Spell Counter, but must be gemini summoned.

Passive Gaining

These cards have effects that put Spell Counters on themselves when another action is performed.(Usually a when a Spell card is activated.) Although they cannot boost Arcanite Magician’s attack, You can use the Spell Counters on these cards to fuel Arcanite Magician’s effect.

Magical Citadel of Endymion

Magical Citadel of Endymion gains Spell Counters whenever a Spell Card is activated which can fuel Arcanite Magician’s effect. Additionally when card with Spell Counters is destroyed, the Spell Counters on that card are transferred to Magical Citadel of Endymion.

Magical Citadel of Endymion even has an innate protection effect which protects it from being destroyed by removing one Spell Counter. Use Magidog to Synchro summon Arcanite Magician to search out Magical Citadel of Endymion.

This is mine, works fine sometimes, even against Yubel decks.

Gotta need some Breaker, but i think it's fine.

Also i tried with Dark Valk, but it makes it too slow.

Decent that but with silent magician there isnt much focus on arcanite magician which is absolutely key. Also I would avoid traps as then endymion wont have as much spell counters to use.

Magical Exemplar can summon Spellcasters from the grave or hand but sadly even in the real game, Spellcasters are cursed with bad lv2 and 3 Tuners. The best lv 3 Spellcaster tuner for easy summon of Arcanite, that we can expect to see anytime soon is Geomancer of the Ice Barrier... For now we have to use other types.

Any Tuner. You just have to make sure the non tuner is a spell caster. Heck Dark Resonator is great since it avoids destruction via battle for 1 turn

Just thought of something. This card + Pitch black power stone will allow you to destroy 5 cards your opponent controls. If you have bestiary in your hand you can activate that and be ready to pop 2 cards next turn.
