Card Discussion: Magical Dimension

If you control a face-up Spellcaster-Type monster: Target 1 monster you control; Tribute that target, then Special Summon 1 Spellcaster-Type monster from your hand, then you can destroy 1 monster on the field.
Magical Dimension is one of my favorite quick-play spell cards. It can make an impact in a game. Magical Dimension is a great card to help quickly special summon high level Spellcasters and destroy opponent's powerful monsters. When used correctly this card can put pressure on your opponent.

Magical Dimension is a great card to help special summon high level Spellcasters. If you're lacking tributes or resources to summon a boss monster then this card can resolve the problem. High Level monsters can be dead cards in the high without being able to summon them. For example, High Priestess of Prophecy is in your hand along with 2 traps and one Spellbook spell card. Your field has a face down Magical Dimension and a Breaker The Magical Warrior. Magical Dimension can quickly special summon High Priestess of Prophecy to the field by sacrificing Breaker The Magical Warrior.

Furthermore, Magical Dimension's greatest strength is that it is a quick-play spell card. It can be played from your hand at any time during your turn. You can set it to activate it during your opponent's turn. This means you can activate it during your battle phase. You can potentially get multiple attacks at your opponent by special summoning a Spellcaster.

Finally, one of Magical Dimension's best effects is that it destroys one monster on the field. A player can destroy any of his or her opponent's monsters. This also includes face down monsters. If there is a monster too powerful on the field, then Magical Dimension can easily resolve that problem. Secondly, this effect is optional. The card reads "you can destroy one monster on the field". You can potentially leave your opponent open for a direct attack to do major damage.

In conclusion, every Spellcaster player should consider running at least once copy of Magical Dimension in their decks. When played properly Magical Dimension can be a game changer. It brings offense by special summoning a powerful Spellcaster, and it can be defensive by destroying opponent's monsters.
