    Have you ever tried the True Name/DM deck? Its way more competitive in casual duels and it never bricks. Since you can use True Name to add a top card when you activate DM Circle and Soul Servant to search. Your draw and add power becomes more effective to search and draw any cards you need. True Name pairs well with Soul Servant (draw 1-4 depending on how many DMs, DMGs, and Palladiums), DM Circle (add 1), Allure of Darkness/Wonder Wand/or Spellbook of Knowledge (draw 2), and The Dark Magicians (draw 1) as an additional 1+, so you looking 7-9 searches from your Deck in one turn for a combo whether going first or second IF YOUR OPPONENT doesnt hit you with hand traps, then the combos are most likely good. So if youre a big brain person, you can try the DM/Egyptian God/True Name deck which works also.

    True Name can help unbrick Dark Magical Circle, and competitively a lot of opponents be caught off guard when you brick, then activate it out of nowhere to add a topped card. 7 duels in, I hadnt lost yet and I recently retired the deck, its that good with True Name. It depends on how good you are formulating your draws and searches to pull out whatever you need to get or have for whatever youre doing with your deck.

    true name is a bit too gimmicky imo. there’s always a chance you won’t get circle, and it becomes useless. (though idk if you can search circle or not, seeing as i do not play dm)

    Unless you’re playing the egyptian gods (don’t know why though), True Name doesn’t work well alone, and even if it does, all you get out of it is the top card. you’re better off just playing upstart. At least then you don’t have to reveal to your opponent what you’re adding to your hand

    True Name makes it super consisent regardless, then if you need draw cards, True Name can pull it for you as well. Then with The Dark Magicians and DM Circle on the field makes it that much greater. Then you got your draw resources to pull off more combos to setup DMTDK or Dark Dragoon.

    Also playing Slifer in this deck makes it better for when your opponent Summons monsters and Slifer can repeatedly destroy them on Summon. So its a semi-floodgate and a stall out, then you still got about 4-5 or more cards in your hand to put pressure on your opponent when its out.

    Oh and this time if you play with True Name, Mahad and Mana makes this deck super consistent and a bit more competitive. Thats how good True Name is. Very clutch card.

    True Name, Mana, Mahad, Slifer, Souls, TDMs, DM, DMG, DMC, Rod, AoD, SoDM, and Servant = Crazy consistent/draw power/combos. 1 turn setup combo for Dark Dragoon and/or for DMTDK unbreakable board.

    DM has a hard enough time getting monsters on the field to consistently tribute summon Slifer or any other egyptian god, so they’re automatically a brick.

    And even if they get special summoned by true name, they’re just gonna go to the GY at the end of your turn because of their own effect, so there’s no way Slifer would work as a floodgate since it doesn’t stay on the field for long.

    At the end of the day, true name is just a worse upstart, so just play upstart.

    Your opponent can still Summon monsters on your turn, you do realize this right?
    And theres other mechanics to keep Slifer on the field. And no, True Name is superior when you have DM Circle and Soul Servant. Youre looking at 2 cards added to your hand or 2-5 cards added to your hand when True Name is in your hand. The point of it IS TO UNBRICK if DM Circle does NOT pull a searchable card or if you NEED IT to pull a unsearchable card. You can use a quick 1 turn Timaeus setup this way by using True Name also and Upstart is trash. Im good.

    While it is possible for your opponent to summon during your turn, most players, if not all, actually prefer to set up their field during their own turns (crazy, right?). And even if they had a way to summon during your turn, all they have to do is summon it in defense position to bypass slifer’s effect, so not much of a floodgate. And the whole argument of justifying true name so it can unbrick circle is counterproductive, since you’re adding more brick potential by including slifer or any other divine monster. If Circle gets bricked, true name is still going to add the top card currently in your deck to your hand (the same thing upstart does). Know what the other good thing about upstart is? It doesn’t depend on you re-arranging your deck with other cards for it to work, and it doesn’t reveal what card you drew to your opponent. Answer me this: What other mechanics are there for you to keep slifer on the field, other than by tribute summoning, which is not viable in DM for the reasons I mentioned in my previous comment? I’m legitimately curious.

    You know whats a great thing about True Name??? THATS ITS NOT LIMITED LIKE UPSTART. You forgot Soul Servant exist. Soul Servant can be manipulated into a draw 2+ card or more THANKS TO TRUE NAME. Theres a lot of mechanics to keep him on the field even until or during the next turn. Who cares what cards it reveals? Pot of Duality does the same thing. You still got Rod to search Circle, dont be naive. As stated as long as you got True Name, Circle, and Soul Servant the deck will not brick. Then you got your draw staples.

    I know Soul Servant exists, but it doesn’t do anything to help your argument, because it’s the same issue with Circle. TN needs those cards to be able to go off. It doesn’t go live on its own, so playing it at more than one means risking some serious bricking, since you’re not guaranteed to open it with SS or Circle. In other words, Upstart being limited to 1 is a moot point, since you don’t want to have more than 1 TN. Also, I’m not sure I understand how Soul Servant benefits from TN like you said compared to Upstart. Servant will do the same regardless of which one you play. If you’re saying that knowing the top card because of Servant will let you draw it and also let you add a card from the deck to the hand, what good is that going to do if it’s just going to stay in your hand because more than likely you have no way of summoning it? And I’ll ask again because you didn’t provide an answer: what mechanics are there for you to keep Slifer on the field past the End Phase if it gets special summoned, other than by tribute summoning it? Since there’s lots of mechanics for this, like you said, I’m sure you can explain at least one of them.

    It does help the argument. TRUE NAME STILL CAN ADD ANY CARD YOU NEED OR WANT. What do you not understand?

    IF YOURE ADDING ON TOP OF YOUR DECK OR PUT CARDS IN ORDER, WHAT DO YOU THINK TRUE NAME IS USED FOR? IN DM DECKS YOU ALWAYS SEARCH FOR DM OR DM SPECIFICALLY LISTED CARDS. ITS STILL DOING MORE THAN A CRAP CARD THATS BARELY SEES A HAND IN CONSISTENCY. THANKS.

    YOURE STILL GOING TO BRICK OFF OF 1 UPSTART GOBLIN.

    The True Name:

    “Declare 1 card name; excavate the top card of your Deck, and if it is the declared card, add it to your hand, then you can add to your hand, or Special Summon, 1 DIVINE monster from your Deck. Otherwise, send it to the GY. You can only activate 1 “The True Name” per turn.”

    It doesn’t add any card you need or want. It lets you add whatever is the top card of the deck on resolution (along with potentially a bricky divine monster), on the condition that you declared the card’s name correctly, which you have no way of knowing without the use of other cards like Circle or Servant.

    In summary: It’s an upstart that requires prior set up before using.

    How is it that this adds anything you need or want, like you said, and what other mechanics are there for you to keep Slifer on the field past the End Phase if it gets special summoned, other than by tribute summoning it (since you seem to keep ignoring the question)?

    You aren’t guaranteed to get circle every time. Upstart still adds the card to hand, and doesn’t even reveal it. True Name literally has no use besides adding an egyptian god to hand, which is already just a bad play if you’re playing dark magician.

    And how is that better than Upstart, which automatically gives you the top card, regardless of whether you know what the card is or not? Just because you didn’t arrange what the next card is, doesn’t mean upstart is bricky. If you brick, then it’s because of how you set up your deck. Upstart basically makes it like you’re playing a 39 deck legally, which boosts consistency. For all your boasting about boosting draw power for DM, you seem to struggle with this concept. While I have you here, can you tell me what other mechanics are there for you to keep Slifer on the field past the End Phase if it gets special summoned, other than by tribute summoning it? Still waiting for an answer on that.

    There’s nothing naive about it Jobe. It’s common sense. You’re literally saying that one card that requires setup is better over another card that does the exact same thing with or without all the setup. Every single you thing you say you can do like adding any card you want you can do with upstart, but at least you’re not required. Are you really this stubborn? Also, what other mechanics are there for you to keep Slifer on the field past the End Phase if it gets special summoned, other than by tribute summoning it?

    1) Which cards can protect Slifer from ending up in the GY during the EP if its special summoned some way?? – you are the big brain (/Yami Yugi counterpart) of Egyptian Gods/Magicians so why don’t you share with us?

    Aigth Jobe, lets say you can consistently draw 6 cards in addition to your draw phase (this is more realistic, as its unlikely that you can get 4 palladium/magician monsters in gy) with only losing 3 cards due to summoning the Dark Magicians (2 spellcasters + Fusion spell) and you have 3 copies of True name in deck. That makes the chance of drawing True Name 25% (combined normal draw and extra draw cards percentage), which is only 1 in 4 duels. Searching True Name itself requires a lot of effort even with all the draw cards you have, as at 3 the original chance of drawing it (not considering draw cards) is 7.5%. You said that you can search a draw card, but most draw cards have costs therefor reducing your hand advantage further and what you can do with it. Remaining hand is 3 cards, you can’t do much with that.

    you could search true name w left arm offering but that is such a big minus just for a stupid gamble, and all for an egyptian god card that destroys itself in the ep
    but really, dark magician isnt worth playing. its so bad and just because yugi played it, doesnt make it competitive or good.
    This deck is bricky, slow, and does so much in 1 turn yet ends on a vanilla and 2 monsters that do nathing on the field
    Whats so good about turboing out a monster that does nothing?

    Just want to point out, with the abundance of drytron in the format, main deck droll is very much a thing right now. Relying on trying to draw a bunch turn 1 in a main deck droll format is anti-bueno :(
