Yugioh | Dark Magician Deck

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.
