Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Review: Apple Magician Girl

[Spellcaster/Effect]

[ATK/1200 DEF/800]

Once per turn, if this card is targeted for an attack: You can Special Summon 1 Level 5 or lower Spellcaster-Type monster from your hand, then change the attack target to it, and if you do, the attacking monster’s ATK becomes half its current ATK. If this card is destroyed by battle or card effect: You can target up to 3 other “Magician Girl” monsters with different names in your Graveyard; add them to your hand.

Apple Magician Girl was introduced with the Magician Girl archetype in Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions Movie Pack. She is only available in this booster set. Each Magician girl from this set has a fruit in her name. These powerful ladies share a similar skill to special summon Spellcasters to the field. Apple Magician Girl has many tricks up her sleeves like every good magician.

Apple Magician Girl’s first ability special summons a level five or lower Spellcaster from your hand if Apple Magician Girl is targeted for an attack. Then, your new monster becomes the target and your opponent’s monster’s ATK is reduced to half of its current ATK. You are able to special summon a monster with enough ATK to destroy your opponent’s monster. In addition to special summoning a monster, you can stall for time because your opponent will most likely not attack her. Your opponent does not want to trigger her ability.

Furthermore, there are many Spellcasters that have synergy with Apple Magician Girl. Chocolate Magician Girl is the most notable card with synergy. To illustrate their synergy, her ATK is strong enough to destroy most monsters. Her skills are also useful to gaining more resources. Then, Chocolate Magician Girl special summons your deck’s strongest monsters.

Finally, Apple Magician Girl’s second effect allows you to draw three Magician Girls from your graveyard if she is destroyed by battle or card effect. This skill is very resourceful. I can draw Dark Magician Girl, Chocolate Magician Girl, and Lemon Magician Girl from the graveyard. Then, my hand will be reloaded to set up a new field. Furthermore, Apple Magician Girl forces your opponent to give you an advantage if he or she is able to destroy her. However, an opponent can dodge this effect if he or she banishes Apple Magician Girl instead of destroying her.

Overall, Apple Magician Girl is an efficient card for every Magician Girl and Dark Magician Deck. I recommend playing two copies or a full set in a deck. My Dark Magician deck has a full set of Apple Magician Girls. She is able to generate resources by either special summoning Spellcasters from your hand to the field, and drawing Magician Girls from the graveyard to your hand. Apple Magician Girl’s magic tricks can lead your Spellcasters to victory!
