This card should have an animation :-(
Is this card limited to only negating and destroying 1 trap card per turn? Like if opponent has both Mirror Wall and Michizure, can this negate and destroy both of the cards?
Legion + DMG + Sage's Stone = Turn 1 Summon

idk what you guys are talking about ? you play Legion you summon DMGirl you play sage stone you get Dark Magician, once you have both DM and DMG on the filed you special summon SODM. what are yous not understanding ? Yugi basically did this in the show.

still really hard to meet summoning conditions for a monster with an effect that isn't worth it at all

You can say it again when you deal with opponent using 3 wall, 3 orb or maybe 3 michizure.

Negating traps isn't a good enough effect for something that requires such a hard to meet condition to be summoned. If you're playing a DM deck with this card, you are just wasting resources for this, which will be a dead draw in almost every scenario, instead of a card that actually has value in Champion's Vigilance. Cards like Econ, OtC, and Super Rush Headlong are much more common anyways
Too much requirements to summon. Why play this over, say, mirage dragon?

If you're running a 3*DeMo DM deck you can include this one. Other than that, I'd say leave it out.

it's not limited to battle phase and it doesn't have 1600 atk....
GK Oracle + magicians circle maybe?
I wonder if this will be getting a 3D animation.

Probably just a little too tricky to get on the field to be practical, but you could still pull it off with Sage's Stone or Magician's Circle in a 3SD deck.

Won't work, cause when you summon DMG using 3SD she became a 3* monster. You have to wait at least your next turn

It WILL work, just not all on the same turn, and that's just if you use 3SD. There are other combos like Jester + DMG + Sage's Stone that will enable him to be summoned immediately.
This card negates ALL traps, no matter what phase or turn it is, while Mystic Dragon can only do it on the Battle Phase.

It also negate your own trap card...interesting card, but too situational, and probably a dead draw...

You >CAN< negate the activation It just negates your own trap card, if you want it to.
