I have him him in my Dark Paladin deck and he works great for farming. If you have Fusion Recycling Plant, it makes it easy to summon 3 Dark Paladins along with having throw away cards to negate magic cards. Then I sacrifice 2 Dark Paladins to bring this guy out. Now you control all magic & trap card activations while leaving a monster slot open for gravekeeper’s vassal to deal the 10k blow
This card should have an animation :-(

If Duel Links would release Jinzo which is way easier to summon and has more support this card would be not even worth mentioning at all

This card is underrated af. The meta spammed by strong traps and you guys sleeping on him
Great card to have against all the walls of disruptions, mirror walls, floodgate etc. Just a pain in the ass to summon.

Did anyone test summoning him in a Magical Something Deck?
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?

Yes it's the same effect Horus has only for Traps.

It is NOT limited to just negating 1 trap per turn. It can negate as many as you want.
Something magic can raise it's level when spell cards are used. Just have to use 2 spell cards and it's level 6.
Legion + DMG + Sage's Stone = Turn 1 Summon

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?

It negate and destroy.

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

GK Oracle + magicians circle maybe?
I wonder if this will be getting a 3D animation.
