  • You can pressure your opponent with strong tribute monsters and spell card effect synergy.
  • Fun deck. If you are a fan of the anime, it might remind you of some Yugi duels.


  • The low level monsters don’t have good stats and can get easily killed if you can’t protect them with a trap card.
  • If you take long to tribute summon your Dark Magicians, this deck may lose to a faster deck.

How to use the deck

The deck’s objective is to make use of the low level monster’s effects in order to summon Dark Magician (DM) from your deck or hand so you will have a good advantage with your spells Dark Magic Attack and Thousand Knives, as well as a high stats monster on the field.

Support Cards

Thousand Knives
Thousand Knives
May save your DM from dying from monster’s effects like Yomi Ship or Hane-Hane, it can also open way for a direct attack.
Magician's Circle
Magician's Circle
can be used to summon more spellcaster’s in 1 turn, including DMG.
Mirror Wall
Mirror Wall
Mirror Wall and Windstorm of Etaqua are used to protect your low stats monsters before you can play your DM.

When to use Dark Magic Attack

Be careful with trap cards like Blast Held by a Tribute. If your opponent has many set spell or traps, wait until you can destroy them with Dark Magic Attack. You may have your DM back from graveyard with Legion’s effect, but it’s not so reliable once you would have to summon it again somehow and you might lose control of the game, but don’t be too afraid as well, one set card could be just bluff or not be a dangerous card to you.

Other useful cards

Dark Effigy
Dark Effigy
A budget substitute for Double Coston.
Arsenal Summoner
Arsenal Summoner
Rogue Doll is in the deck because it is a normal spellcaster monster, so she can be used with Legion’s effect, but if you don’t have them you can put Arsenal Summoner.
Champion's Vigilance
Champion's Vigilance
Useful to protect your Dark Magician against card such as Blast Held by a Tribute.
Escape from the Dark Dimension

I reckon you only need one normal spell caster and that's neo. Jester can bring him from grave and blue dragon from deck. If u have half shot. Use it to protect your double custom and jester as these cards get Dm on the field following turn.

She's a really good card. Legion is better because it searches deck and graveyard and gives you +1

You can farm Yugi Level 40 at the gate, he drops him, and old players had a chance to get him from celebration events and such, currently I got 4 Dark magicians even though i dont think i dropped one from yugi.

They should definitely release this card! A level 4 monster with excellent defense that counters ...
It's one Battle Mania bro. It's ways around it.
This skill is garbage. It could be used to farm successfully, but don't expect to do well in...
Relinquished beats all
