Dark Magician
AlwardiAdded by Alwardi

The classic Dark Magician card, while not as strong as other monsters for its level, happens to have a huge amount of support and features more alternative summoning options for getting it onto the field than practically any other card in legal use. Due to the number of ways it can be used, there are multiple deck variants based upon it, any of which can be competitive even against more modern deck archetypes when properly used.

Dark Magician Deck (Basic)Edit

Having multiple copies of Dark MagicianDark Magic Curtain leads to summoning the Dark Magician in just one turn and then following up with cards that support it such as Dark Magic AttackThousand Knives and Dark Magician's Tome of Black Magic. Having multiple Spellcasters that can add their effects as well, such as Old Vindictive Magician, Defender, the Magical Knight, and Magical Dimension. Any other cards in this deck should revolve around summoning and protecting the Dark Magician. Another effective combo involves using Dark Magician is sending it to the grave with Elemental Hero Prisma's effect (by showing Dark Paladin) and then reviving it using cards like Birthright, Swing of Memories. You can also use other cards that aren't Spellcasters: Penguin Soldier or Neo-Spacian Grand Mole are good monsters for returning annoying or threatening monsters on your opponent's field to their hands. You can also use Royal Decree to stun all trap cards, to ensure your enemy does not activate Sakuretsu Armor or Mirror Force or a million other trap possibilities to destroy your Dark Magician. You may also want to put Destruction Jammer in your Deck as well, as it will make sure your Dark Magician does not get destroyed by cards such as Fissure or Lightning Vortex. Since the Dark Magician is a Spellcaster Type, you can combine with Secret Village of the Spellcasters and Royal Decree to create a spell trap lockdown.

Dark Magician Girl DeckEdit

Similar to the Dark Magician Deck above, but not. the Dark Magician Girl deck focuses on the Dark Magician Girl, obviously, while having some focus shared with the Dark Magician and possibly Magician of Black Chaos. Dark Magician Girl benefits from these two being sent to the graveyard, with a 300 ATK boost for each of them, but those cards are better so just send Dark Magician girl to the graveyard. Therefore, it is possible to max out her attack at 5600 by having 3 of each in both players' graveyards, but that's not likely. Using cards like Foolish Burial and Armageddon Knight really help in getting those cards to the graveyard quickly. Though not as supported as the Dark Magician itself, the Dark Magician Girl shares some support.

Spellcasters/Magicians Deck of MagicEdit

Dark Magician, is cool looking, and as a Spellcaster-Type Monster, can be used with many support cards that support Spellcaster monsters in general. Cards like Diffusion Wave-Motion and Magical Dimension are very powerful cards that can turn the duel around in one turn, or sit in your hand the whole game while you painfully try to summon a monster with only 2500 attack. Some Monsters that are related to the Dark Magician, like Skilled Dark Magician, Dark Sage, and Dark Paladin, are all Spellcasters which support the use of magic cards mentioned earlier. The Structure Decks Spellcaster's Command and Spellcaster's Judgment introduced new ways of using Spellcasters by utilising Spell Counters. Spell Counters are used to infflict direct damage to win, and cards like Magical Blast, Pitch-Black Power Stone (spell counter increase) and Tower of Babel may help achieve these goals, but don't count on winning often with a Dark Magician deck.

My deck goes like this:

Tricky Magician deckEdit

This is a tricky deck to play, this deck uses The Tricky and his effect to send cards that activate their effects when they are sent to the graveyard such as Dandylion or Treeborn Frog and then tribute these cards to summon the ace card, however summoning The Tricky is somewhat tricky. You can also discard Dark Magician and then summon The Tricky with Swing of Memories. Summon Defender, the Magical Knight beforehand. It will put a Spell counter on it and in the end phase Dark Magician won't be destroyed. This deck is also good for somewhat tricky Synchro Summons.
