Dark Magician Girl
Effect: Increase the ATK of this monster by 300 points for each "Dark Magician" or "Magician of Black Chaos" in either player's Graveyard.
Has Potential; 2300, 2600, 2900, 3200, 3500, 3800, 4100, 4400, 4700, 5000...
Soul Release, Kycoo, Dark Core, Banisher, BoM+NoC, Etc. can remove any Monsters boosting her.
Unsearchable by anything.
Graceful Charity - Discard Dark Magicians and Magician of Black Chaoses
Kycoo - Helps keep your Graveyard in tact.
DMG, one of the most anticipated cards to come out, but not so much for her Effect or stats, but more because of her looks and popularity among collectors. She is very helpful/useful in SpellCaster/Magician Decks, but she won't be used in much else unless you normally play Dark Magician. The highest her boost can possibly go is 3600 making her 5600 ATK, but there isn't much of a chance that both players will have several copies of either card in their Graveyard.
As of the time this card is being reviewed there hasn't been a Magician Of Black Chaos released in English, and there's no word on when it's coming out, Many people thought it would come in Power Of Chaos but the Promo list has been released (Windstorm of Etaqua, Anti-Spell Fragrance and Thousand Knives).
With DMG and Diffusion Wave Motion both being the Secret Rares, you would think it would be cool if they worked together, but they don't, she's only Lv.6 and Diffusion Wave requires Lv.7, but Dark Magician still works out.
So yeah, at the moment DMG is more collectable than playable, at least until Magician of Black Chaos, Jewel Of The Wise, Magicians Tome, Dimension Magic and a couple other good Magician Cards come out. There's also different artworks for DMG and there is a Toon Dark Magician Girl which will be released sometime soon I'm hoping, but I'm sure they won't be here for a while.
ArtWork: 4.0 - Yeah it would have been nicer if they didn't edit her chest, not trying to sound perverted, but her cleavage was what helped make her so popular in Japan.
