Card Discussion: 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 one of my favorite monsters from the original Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series. I wanted Konami to print her since she was shown in the anime. Thankfully, Konami finally printed her in Dragons of Legend! Dark Magician Girl looks totally awesome and hot as a knight riding her friend dragon. Her introduction was epic!

Dark Magician Girl the Dragon Knight is one of the best support cards for the Dark Magician. Her effect reads "You can send one card from your hand to the Graveyard, then target one face-up card on the field; destroy that target". She  candestroy any face-up card on the field. The only downside is losing a card, but it can be worth it when dealing with strong monsters. She can quickly destroy threatening cards such as Legendary Six Samurai - Shi En and Number 11: Big Eye.

She is very easy to summon as there are many different combinations to summon her to the field. She can be special summon from the Extra Deck as quickly as the opening turn. The Eye of Timaeus is the key card to run in Dark Magician decks. It conserves resources and simply makes it easy to summon any Dark Magician fusion monster. Dark Magician of Illusions Magical Exemplar, and Magical Dimension can special summon the Dark Magician to the field from your hand or deck, then you will activate The Eye of Timaeus to unleash Dark Magician Girl the Dragon Knight!

Dragon decks can utilize her as well. Dragon's Mirror can summon Dark Magician Girl the Dragon Knight! You will either need the Dark Magician Girl on the field or in the graveyard and a Dragon on the field or in the graveyard.

In Conclusion, Dark Magician Girl the Dragon Knight is a staple card for Dark Magician decks. She's just too good to leave out. Her ability to protect the field cannot be ignored. Dark Magician Girl the Dragon Knight is by far the best Dark Magician monster in the game today!
