Although Dark Magician isn’t really in the meta nowadays, it can be fun using it with all of its immense amount of support cards. I’ll be showing you a 40 main deck and 15 side deck that my friend and I have been having lots of fun with. This Dark Magician deck focuses on special summoning Dark Magician from the graveyard using Eternal Soul and using Rank 7 Xyzs along with DMOC.
