Dark Paladin's Dimension

Spellcasters--the forgotten decktype?

1.20.05   Today I will write about Spellcasters, and their current environment in the metagame. Despite most people's popular opinion, a Spellcaster deck can be run with reasonable success. When the game first came out, for a while, Spellcasters were frequently run. Sadly, today, few
 people run them, and deem them "unworhty." I myself run one, and have won some local tournaments where I live with it, but never finished better than 3rd in an actual official tournament. Now, there are three main Spellcasters that can have decks built around them. They are Dark Magician, Sorcerer of Dark Magic, and Dark Paladin. Now, a simply Dark Magician Deck would be simplest, but probably least effective. Dark Paladin I believe is more complicated, but
 wonderful if you get him on the field. Likewise, Sorcerer of Dark Magic being the hardest to summon would be most effective.

 Spellcasters also have a lot of support and seem to be getting more all the time. Obviously Magician's Force gave us DMG, Dark Paladin, Diffusion Wave-Motion, Breaker (who works in almost any deck), Magical Scientist, Chaos Command Magician, and so much more. Invasion of
 Chaos gave us the versatile Dark Magician of Chaos. Look what happened to Dark Magician of Chaos! A Spellcaster that was thrown into a LOT of tournament decks for a while, and is still in a
 considerable number.

 Now, Spellcasters themselves aren't usually beatdown monsters with amazing attack or anything. A couple of exceptions are Skilled Dark Magician and Gemini Elf, both 1900 level 4 attackers. But you have a lot weaker ones too...Magician of Faith, Kycoo the Ghost Destroyer,
 Neo the Magic Swordsman, etc...Also, the majority of Spellcasters are DARK types, with a couple of exceptions. Chaos Command Magician is LIGHT, as is Magician of Faith.
 Gemini Elf is EARTH. As for tribute monsters for Spellcasters, Chaos Command Magician is one of the best. Being 2400-1900 and level 6, he'll go head-to-head with Jinzo. Since Dark Magician is 2500-2100 and requires an extra tribute, Chaos Command isn't a bad option if you
 want a bit of a quicker Spellcaster.

 Now, here is a deck that centralizes its focus on summoning the Sorcerer of Dark Magic!
