Today and tomorrow, the cards reviewed CANNOT BE
USED IN A DUEL. But I thought how cool they
were in artwork, and the semi-nostalgic factor might
be cool to look at. Today is Legendary
Magician of Dark (obviously a mirror of Dark
Magician) who has identical statistics and
attribute, who needs 3 XYZ Material to be XYZ
Summoned, and then can't be Special Summoned in
other ways. Yes, 2500 on a Rank 7, who
requires 3 XYZ Material (in this case 3 Level 7
Monsters) If this card attacks your opponent
directly, and reduces your opponent's Lifepoints to
0, you win the Match. So long as at least one
of the XYZ Material attached to this card was
originally Spellcaster-type. Great in it's
Deck...Magician, Spellbook, take your pick.
But that's insanely powerful to win a Match in one
attack. Yea, 2500 again isn't great, and three
XYZ Material is a lot, but again, the effect makes
Essentially this equates to it being Banned, but if
it weren't, 3.5/5
Hello Pojo Fans,
Legendary Magician of Dark was a World Championship
Prize Card, and, like Victory Dragon, has a match
win condition, making it unable to be played in the
3 Level 7 monsters it takes to Xyz Summon this
Spellcaster. Its win condition only occurs if it
does direct damage, reducing your opponent LP to 0
while a Spellcaster is attached as a material. Those
requirements make it more eligible for legal game
play than Victory Dragon, as you are required to
attach Spellcaster(s) if you want that win
condition. It's ATK and DEF aren't anything special
(another Spellcaster emulating Dark Magician, which
is great), but it isn't anything overpowering.
Gagaga monsters could easily make this monster a
reality on the field, but to have 3 Level 7 monsters
on the field is more difficult now that the
Elemental Rulers are banned (and Xyz Summoning this
card with them means no win condition). Fog King is
a pretty easy monster to bring out, and while there
may be more support for Dark Magician coming out in
the future to help with its summoning, this card
still requires at least 1 material to be a
Spellcaster to have the win condition.
Let it be legal for a format (like Snatch Steal). If
it becomes a problem (like Snatch Steal), ban it.
Until Next Time
Another formulaic Victory Dragon clone that can't
be used in a duel, and even if it were, it would be
far too situational to pull off. Artwork is
generic, the effect is unoriginal and the card
overall is plain bad.
1/5 (if it were usable)
