Dark Magician is an old archetype that recently got a very strong support card from the Future Horizon Main Box being Loading... . The deck also had Loading... introduced in the Guardians Of Rock Mini Box in May 2019. This deck revolves around summoning your Loading... with Loading... and banishing your opponents' cards with Loading... while doing so, as well as being able to negate one of your opponents’ spells/traps by banishing Loading... from your graveyard any turn after you had activated the navigation.
No Mortal Can Resist
No Mortal can resist has been the go-to skill for dark magician recently after the sealed tombs nerf, it allows you to stop decks that rely on graveyard synergy such as crystrons, shiranui, and thunder dragons after losing lifepoints usually through Loading... . Some people have had success with Loading... as well to trigger the skill while summoning a dark magician from the deck.
Balance is another skill some people prefer using, it gives you more consistency and it’s used to utilize drawing certain techs more often through the guaranteed spell/trap that balance gives you, this variant usually runs Loading... to draw said techs by equipping it to your Loading... or Loading...
Dark Magician (3x):
Dark Magician is your main boss monster and it’s considered core at 3 to maximize your chance of drawing it and special summon it using Loading... .
Magician's Rod (3x):
This card is necessary for every dark magician deck as it allows you to search any of your Dark Magician Spells/Traps to boost your consistency of having them in hand.
Dark Magical Circle (2-3x):
The most recent support card we’ve got for the deck. Ideally you want to run 3 but 2 can suffice as you can also search it with Loading... . It allows you to banish any card your opponent controls when you normal/special summon your Loading... through Loading... , Loading... ’s 1st or 2nd effect, or just tribute summoning it.
Magician of Dark Illusion (1x):
Magician Of Dark Illusion is very useful in this deck and it’s usually the main target to special summon with Loading... when using Loading... . it can also be special summoned on your opponent turn upon activating a spell/trap allowing you to trigger Loading... effect if you didn’t start with Loading... . It’s 2nd effect is also very useful to special summon Loading... from your graveyard when activating a spell/trap or an effect to trigger your Loading... .
Magician Navigation (3x):
Night's End Sorcerer(0-1x):
This card has been very useful for dark magician in the current meta as it gets rid of a lot of problematic cards in the graveyard like Loading... , Loading... , and it can be used against crystrons to banish Loading... or level 3 none tuners to stop Loading... from summoning Loading... on your turn. It also acts as a synchro enabler with either your dark magician or Loading... to out problematic monsters.
Kycoo the Ghost Destroyer(0-1x):
Kycoo has fallen off in popularity lately because Loading... has more utility in the current meta, however, this card still has some good use against decks that banish from their graveyard like thunder dragons and shiranui. Some people also use both night’s end with kycoo to have an answer to all the graveyard dependant decks.
Cosmic Cyclone is very good in this deck to get rid of your opponent’s cosmic cyclone so they can’t disrupt your Loading... . It’s also nice to get rid of key backrow cards like Loading... and Loading... .
Dark Magic Curtain:
This card is very useful for going aggressive turn 2 by special summoning a Loading... from your deck after paying half your lifepoints while triggering Loading... to banish one of your opponent’s cards. The main reason it’s not seeing a lot of play is that it restricts you from summoning anything else that turn(but you can still set). Therefore you can’t search it through Loading... then activate it on the same turn.
Dark Magic Veil:
Dark Magic Veil is a very good to trigger your Loading... banishing effect on your turn by special summoning a Loading... from hand. Its main downside is being unsearchable and having bad synergy with Loading... as using it turn 2 means you’re unlikely to have another dark magician in hand to activate the navigation.
Dark Magic Attack:
This card is very powerful against backrow heavy decks such as elementsabers and cyber dragons and you can easily search it through your Loading...
