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.

I'm trying to summon Arcaninet magician. 1 tuner which came in the pack which is a plant based and one of my spell casters since my deck is mostly spellcasters, and it's just not working m it never gives me the option to summon him, is this a glitch? I seem to be able to summons every other like explosive magician.

At least tell us which tuner you’re using mate. Are we supposed to guess which tuner you used?

plant tuner is lvl 3. you'll need a level 4 spellcaster monster on the board to summon 1 arcanite. the extra deck should have a green outline.
This card is great in a deck that has 3 Wheel of Fortune from JOJO (Sr from new box)
Someone make a deck based on this please?

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.

Run lvl 4 spellcasters with spell counters and a unexpected dai engine to pop out a lvl 3 normal tuner. You can take it a step further and try a Gemini elf too because it's a lvl 4 earth spellcaster so you can synchro out landoise or arcanite.
Thanks to loaner duels I realized this card could be a turn one 4000 atk points power creep. Really good

If I'm not wrong there is a quick-spell that sends cards to graveyard and puts spell counters in a card. Forgot the name though :/

Mystical bestiary
Feels like konami enjoys bricking spellcaster decks
I highly recommend you guys use "Gateway to Chaos" since every time a monster is sent to the field to the graveyard, it gets 1 spell counter
By synchro summoning, you get 2 spell counters guaranteed, or more if the enemy just let it be (if you see Gateway to Chaos, 99% surely the enemy has Arcanite due to the insane synergy)
With Gateway to Chaos, this guy turns into Koaki Maximus unlimited mode, very nice creature indeed

I don't think it's worth running Charging Gaia just to use Gateway.
How comes when I synchro summon it doesn't place the counters on the card

And before you ask I do use spellcaster tuner and monster

This shouldn‘t be the case Maybe your Tuner negates the effects of your synchro Monster

Read the card dude
Meanwhile six samurai can summon their staple card in turn, way to go komoney
Will this ever be used in a Dark Magician deck?
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
