Card Discussion: Choco Magician Girl

[Spellcaster/Effect]
ATK/1600 DEF/1000

Once per turn: You can discard 1 Spellcaster-Type monster; draw 1 card. Once per turn, if this card is targeted for an attack: You can target 1 Spellcaster-Type monster in your Graveyard, except "Choco Magician Girl"; Special Summon it, then change the attack target to that monster, and if you do, halve the attacking monster's ATK.
Choco Magician Girl is a level 4 Spellcaster with 1,600 attack points and 1,000 defense points. She will be released in V Jump in Japan. She has not been announced to be available in the English as of today. I am hoping we do not have to wait too long to be able to purchase her. Dark Magician girl has a new rival for title of the sexiest woman in Yu-Gi-Oh! Choco Magician Girl has two powerful skills to take Dark Magician and all Spellcaster decks to the next level.

Versatile Magician Girl

Every Spellcaster deck can make good use of her. Her skills are not limited to a particular archetype. Dark Magician, Fortune Ladies, Magician Girl, and Spellbooks are able use fully use Choco Magician Girl's abilities. Her versatility gives players a variety of strategies for their decks. Players will need to play a full set to get the full benefits from her.  I will add her in my Spellbook Dark Magician deck.

Draw Power

Choco Magician Girl's first skill discards a Spellcaster from your hand and you may draw a card. You are cycling through your deck to search for the best cards for your match. Spellbooks already have amazing draw power. The Grand Spellbook Tower allows you to draw an extra card during your standby phase and return one Spellbook from your Graveyard to deck. Choco Magician Girl gives you the option to a third draw with the cost of discarding a card. You have quicker access to cards that you need against certain decks.

Special Summon Allies!

Her second skill activates when she is targeted for an attack. She can special summon any Spellcaster monster from your Graveyard and change the attacking monster's attack towards your new monster. The attacking monster's ATK is halved. Select a strong Spellcaster from your Graveyard to special summon. Your new Spellcaster will be more than strong enough to destroy the opposing monster. This skill can work as a great combo with the first skill. The discarded Spellcaster can return from the Graveyard to the field and the draw from the first skill is basically free. You can also special summon a strong level four monster to set up a rank four play on your following turn!

The Final Word

Choco Magician Girl is my new favorite level 4 Spellcaster. She rivals Dark Magician Girl in beauty. However, her skills are far superior to everyone's favorite female monster Dark Magician Girl. Many players with a Spellcaster deck will want to play a full set of Choco Magician Girl. We do not know when she will eventually arrive in the English Edition, and it needs to be soon. Her artwork will most likely be edited as Konami is crazy on censorship in the English edition. I hope Choco Magician Girl comes to the English edition very soon!
