My Favorite Cards From Dragons of Legend


Dragons of Legend is one of my favorite booster sets in a very long time. I haven't looked forward to a booster set since Return of the Duelist. Dragons of Legend has so many cards that I dreamed of playing one day. I'm mainly interested in Dark Magician's new support cards. My Spellcaster deck will be updated with the new Dark Magician support!

The Eye of Timaeus
(This card is also always treated as "Legendary Dragon Timaeus".)
Target 1 "Dark Magician" monster you control; Fusion Summon 1 Fusion Monster from your Extra Deck that lists that monster on the field as a Fusion Material Monster, using it as the Fusion Material. You can only activate 1 "The Eye of Timaeus" per turn.
The Eye of Timaeus is the support card that the Dark Magician archetype has been lacking for years. It makes Dark Paladin much easier to summon. Dark Paladin is one of the most powerful fusion monsters in the game.

Dark Magician Girl the Dragon Knight
"Dark Magician Girl" + 1 Dragon-Type monster
Must be Fusion Summoned with the above Fusion Material Monsters or with "The Eye of Timaeus", and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. Once per turn, during either player's turn: You can send 1 card from your hand to the Graveyard, then target 1 face-up card on the field; destroy that target.
Dark Magician Girl the Dragon Knight is the most popular card in the entire set and with good reason. She is easily the best Dark Magician card in the game today. Her skill can protect herself from dangerous spells and traps. She can also destroy my opponent's powerful bosses.

Amulet Dragon
"Dark Magician" + 1 Dragon-Type monster
Must be Fusion Summoned with the above Fusion Material Monsters or with "The Eye of Timaeus", and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. If this card is Special Summoned: Target any number of Spell Cards in any Graveyard(s); banish those targets, and if you do, this card gains 100 ATK for each card banished by this effect. If this card is destroyed: You can target 1 Spellcaster-Type monster in your Graveyard; Special Summon that target.
Amulet Dragon's artwork is very impressive and looks ten times better than the drawing from the anime. Amulet Dragon is the perfect Anti-Spellbooks card. It is very ironic that a fusion monster containing the Dark Magician counters Spellbooks.

Ra's Disciple
When this card is Summoned: You can Special Summon up to 2 "Ra's Disciple" from your hand or Deck. Cannot be Tributed, except for the Tribute Summon of "Obelisk the Tormentor", "Slifer the Sky Dragon" or "The Winged Dragon of Ra". You cannot Special Summon monsters, except with "Ra's Disciple".
The God cards have been lacking a lot of good support for years. They finally have a support card just for them. Ra's Disciple will be a staple in God card decks.

Legendary Knight Timaeus
Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Must be Special Summoned with "Legend of Heart", and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. When this card is Special Summoned: You can target 1 face-up Spell/Trap Card on the field; banish that target. When this card is targeted for an attack: You can target 1 Spell Card in your Graveyard; Set that target.
The legendary swordsman is finally a real card! He looks cold-blooded! The Legendary Knight Timaeus has two wicked effects. He removes your opponent's back row and the second skill is a plus one by setting a spell card from the card.
