Dark Magician support's really stacked up over the years. While Yami Yugi was able to pummel several seasons' worth of opponents using the supreme spellcaster, the Dark Magician theme never quite made it to the top in real life tournaments. But that could change with the release of the 2020 Tin of Lost Memories, bringing Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon to the TCG.

Players have been trying to fit Dragoon into any deck that can support the Predaplant Verte Anaconda package, but the best place for this Fusion Monster might be in the actual theme it draws from! Check out the video below to see if MBT can make these magicians shine.

It's no secret that Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon is one of the most powerful cards ever. Against popular combo and control decks that rely on activated effects, Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon easily shuts down almost any play your opponent might make. The support of Magicians' Souls, Eternal Soul, and Dark Magical Circle gives the deck incredible synergy, and all but the worst hands can make a Turn 1 Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon.

The only real downside to the deck is that Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon will soon be Public Enemy Number 1 in competition, and players will be ready to out the Red-Eyes Dark Dragoon. But until that trend reaches its peak, this deck can definitely wreak some havoc. If you want to follow in Yami Yugi's footsteps and play the true Dark Magician deck, check out the list below!
