Pros

  • Negates Trap cards during either player’s turn, this effect can be used multiple times during the same turn.
  • Powerful ATK and DEF stats.

Cons

  • Challenging Summon conditions.

Tips

  • Although powerful in negating Trap effects, this monster can be very hard to Special Summon in the fast paced meta.
  • This monster is still susceptible to Spell effects, therefore it might be wise to include Silent Magician, for example for additional Spell negation.

Spellbook Method

Reaper of Prophecy can Special Summon level 5 or higher Spellcaster-type monster from your Deck if you have 5 or more Spellbook Spell cards in your Graveyard, therefore you should have 2 level 6 or higher Spellcaster-type monsters ready to Special Summon Sorcerer of Dark Magic. Prophecy Destroyer can be Special Summoned from the Graveyard instead, by banishing 3 Spellbook Spell cards, to fill in the quota, or it can be Special Summoned via Reaper of Prophecy’s effect from your Deck, and after tributing it to Special Summon Sorcerer of Dark Magic, you can Special Summon Prophecy Destroyer from your Graveyard, by banishing 3 Spellbook Spell cards.

Dark Magician Girl Method

If you control Dark Magician Girl on the Field, you can use Sage's Stone to Special Summon Dark Magician from your Deck, together they make 2 level 6 or higher Spellcaster-type monsters, ready to use for Special Summon Sorcerer of Dark Magic. Alternatively, if Dark Magician is in your Graveyard, you can use Swing of Memories to Special Summon it to the Field to be used as 1 of the Tributes.

I mean, the summon conditions of this dude made him a bit difficult to summon. But I've been watching plenty of crazy decks lately and even 3 copies of him seem to be viable. Kinda awesome.

Aunque puede ser muy util y letal (con la conbinacion de cartas correcta) aun sogue siendo dificil de invocar en un deck dark magician puede ser util pero solo para complementar la negacion de cartas trampa

Not to mention if it's also "negate monster effect" type of counter trap...

Negate attack is not a counter trap card...

Why would you ever think 3 copies of this is a good thing?

It's quite difficult to summon in a fast-paced meta.
Perhaps it could work in some sort of a Spellbook deck, but even then you still need to have it in your hand in exactly the right time to be able to summon it.

This card is underrated af. The meta spammed by strong traps and you guys sleeping on him

Too hard to summon, only one copy of it and still vulnerable to econ. I mean if you did summon it you are out of resources to counter quickplay spells.

Unlike Jinzo, Sorcerer doesn't negate trap effects if that trap was already activated before you summoned him

Guys there is only one but you can guarantee he is in your hand at the stat with arkanas ability trick up the sleeve. You just have to forgo dark magician for it to work. Use 3 legion of fiend jester cards plus powerful rebirth, ancient rules x 2 and 3 copies of trance the magical swordsman. Also magical something cards because its ability increases its level so two spells and its a level 6 for sorcerer tribute. Its a lot easier now that arkana has that ability.

Did anyone test summoning him in a Magical Something Deck?

I've tested this and it DOES work, albeit a slow method to summon.

Whelp, I don't think this card was meant to be summoned quickly anyway.

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 :-(
