I think Wonder Wand works decently well in this deck. You can even equip it to Rod/Souls, send them to the graveyard and proc their effect.

Personally, I would remove DMG and DMG dragon knight (and amulet dragon, since he does nothing for this deck). You can add something like Palladium Oracle Mahad for some more consistency. DMG doesn't really do much in the deck unfortunately. I'm really glad you added Apprentice though. That card is fantastic. You can replace the Extra Deck monsters with cards like Selene, or even the two Predaplant fusions.

Lastly, I don't think the ritual monster is very good, unfortunately. It works best when you have other Chaos Ritual monsters, such as Blue Eyes Chaos MAX and such. If you replace those to add cards like Eternal Soul or Secret Village of the Spellcasters, you can add some better control than what the ritual offers.

These are my opinions. I've been following your DM decks for a while and I do think they've been getting better, but still need some tweaking.

Wand can also equip with Apprentice as well which I spam for more draw power thanks to Wands effect.

Mahad doesnt work with this deck. Main deck got to be DARK Spellcasters since the Blue Eyes is a LIGHT deck. If it was Chaos MAX, I could see Mahad being used in this deck SINCE it is a LIGHT monster and Chaos Max Dragon is a DARK Attribute.

From Konami themselves, the different ATTRIBUTES reportedly has similarities to RIVAL each other:
Magician of Chaos (and/or Magician of Dark Illusion) (DARK) = Alternative Dragon (LIGHT) & Blue Eyes Chaos Max Dragon (DARK) = Mahad (LIGHT). If the rival deck played with Chaos Max, THEN I would have to use Mahad to counter it since its ATK doubles.

Basically: Blue Eyes + Alternative Dragon = Light Deck. Dark Magic + Magician of Chaos = Dark Deck. Now the theme of Light AND Dark would be Blue Eyes & Chaos Max = Light/Dark and then Dark Magician & Mahad = Light/Dark. Thats why Mahad also dont work in this deck.

Also the Ritual summon is very good. Eternal Soul is a slow setup. The goal is to summon either a Fusion, XyZ, or a Ritual in 1 turn. If you noticed, theres nothing but spells and maybe 6 trap cards. The goal is draw power and spamming to XyZ, Fusion, and/or Ritual summon. I pulled off a Ritual and Fusion summon in 1 turn. So obviously it can't be that bad. Navigation and Eternal Soul sucks and ruins DM decks by being too slow. Players need to summon boss monsters ASAP if they're going first or second.

Spellcasters Village is not good for this deck. DMG does do a lot for the deck since you still got to use her for drawing and to repeatedly spam if Magicians are removed and/or you need a Fusion once more.

But anyways thanks!!! Hope you had played against a Blue Eyes deck to test it out!!!

Note that I beat the Blue Eyes WCS 2016 deck 2-0 by pulling out MoC and Magicians on my first turn with this deck.

And also Im uploading one more DM deck that can rival meta a bit more sometime today.

Uh, the blue eyes deck from 2016 is majorly outdated and power crept by now. Beating a deck that was meta in 2016 doesn't really mean anything. Also, you should remove the ritual monster, as it's insanely bricky; you can't just splash in ritual monsters. Also, There Can Only Be One is pretty useless and can just hurt yourself, I wouldn't reccomend running it. Also, run Spellcaster Village, as it completely locks down your opponent if they're not also running spellcasters. Also, side deck Raigeki, it's not reliable when going first and is just a dead card.

Ummm duh? Did you not read the description?

Umm again? Did you not read anything I said above? MoC DOES NOT BRICK. Smfh. The point of Secrets of DM IS TO USE IT FOR MoC, ALSO IT HAS PURPOSE FOR DRAWING CARDS REASON WHY ALLURE OF DARKNESS IS IN HERE. I summoned MoC on nearly every first turn if not second.

Umm no. TCOBO is a great card to prevent more Summons. Its a great card. Its not hurting myself WHEN I GOT APPRENTICE or a BOSS Monster to back me in a 1 turn summon.

Umm AGAIN. NO. Spellcaster Village is NOT A GOOD CARD. You never heard of Infernobles? Dragon Link? Thunder Dragons? They can bypass that. Meta laughs at that card.

Umm and NO AGAIN. Raigeki is perfectly fine since Lightning Storm is chance of flopping.

You got an outdated memory on today's meta. Really sad to see. You do know I won against meta decks with this same deck after beating thie old WCS 2016 deck right?

Damn, thought you were actually gonna listen to critisism instead of whining "umm no" like the 2 year old toddler that lives across the street from me. FIrst of all, yes I read all of it, but you were blatantly wrong. MoC easily bricks, it's not at all reliable. You have to have a monster on the field, MoC, and the spell to summon it. It's way too bricky and wastes recourses that could be better spent on fusions. TCOBO seriously hurts you because you can't get out any more spellcasters so you're just left with 1 monster and are forced to play the grind game.
Spellcaster Village is a fantastic card, as it still slows down many decks, and while some decks can bypass it, that doesn't mean it can shut down many others. It's worth playing, especially against Blue EYes.
Raigeki isn't good to main deck, you completely ignored my point
I completely know the current meta. Don't make shit up just to make yourself seem better Jobe. Totally. Where did you win? On Nexus, where most wins are fucking disconnects and surrenders from the 9 year olds who only use Nexus?

OH MY GOD. Jobe just start accepting the help other people are trying to give you. I may sound harsh when saying this I hope Dark Magician never becomes meta. Also, I'm pretty sure all of us would like to see how well this deck can do. Before you say I've beat many people on Dueling Nexus with this deck, Dueling Nexus isn't a good dueling simulator. If you actually want to test out your deck go against people on Dueling Book or Project: Ignis.

Also Jobe Thunder Dragons aren't meta. The current meta is Dinosaurs Dogmatika varients, Dragonlink, and maybe Infernoble Knights. All of these decks have powerful spells that spellcaster village can stop. Dinos has double evolution which is very important. Infernoble knight you can stop the searchers like rota, and the equip spells. Dragonlink include quicklaunch, boot sector launch, and chaos space. You can also stop you're opponent's lightning storm, dark ruler no more, etc. Also what is tcboo for, it leaves you with one monster.
