    Few things that don’t really make sense with this deck for me are:

    Why Link Spider? It does not help this deck at all. The only normal monster is Dark Magician.

    Metafoes Fusion reshuffles your deck before draw, so it’s incompatible with Dark Magic Circle, on top of having a once per turn restriction. “Drawing” a Magicians’ Souls or Rod with Dark Magic Circle can affect the outcome of a match entirely.

    Well, not running Dragon Knight is also a bit strange to me as well, it only takes a Knightmare Phoenix to clear the entire board. With Dragon Knight they’d have to go for something like Ningirsu to the least.

    This is speaking from OCG gamer perspective.

    link spider puts a monster in the GY (material for the summon) so it can activate an effect. That’s what it’s like usually for other decks, so i’m assuming it’s what it is here

    First of all, Link Spider uses NORMAL monsters as summoning materials, which don’t have any effects. Second of all, the effect of link spider itself is summoning Level 4 Normal Monsters (which Dark Magician Deck does not make use of). The only thing I can think of is that you actually use link spider to link to other link monsters, otherwise Imduk is flat out better for link material, since you can fusion Red-Eyes or Dragon Knight using Imduk.

    I went to see this TeamSamuraiX1 on youtube, and looking at his sub count as well as how serious he takes the game (and plays real cards), I can only assume he’s a better player than me (who mostly just play on ygopro), but his Dark Magician Deck just feels a bit weak to me. Looking at his Link Evolution footage, he claims the deck is unstoppable, then when playing he claimed he got really lucky, but the best he did first turn is set up Dark Magic Circle Navigation + Illusion Magic (which is just one negate and one removal, at best, with no handtraps, no protection), and only getting his deck down to 26.

    I’m by no means a good player, but even with my OCG Deck I can set up better board by turn one (sometimes even with enemy handtraps). Sometimes I can even get out Dragon Knight + Eternal Soul along with The Dark Magicians AND Red-Eyes Dragoon on turn one.

    I can only assume TCG is much much more tame than OCG (which I do think is a good thing, since it feels like many matches in OCG end in T2~4).

    This is a solid deck. It is functional with a minimalist approach. I would enjoy seeing how this deck fares against some kind of stall deck. Maybe adding one or two “Magical Contract Door” to this deck would be helpful?

    Thanks for sharing Chanith123 !
