If a monster(s) with 2500 original ATK and/or DEF is Normal or Special Summoned to your field: You can Special Summon this card from your hand in Defense Position. If this card is Special Summoned: You can target 1 “Dark Magician” or “Blue-Eyes White Dragon” you control; it gains 2500 ATK/DEF until the end of this turn. You can only use each effect of “Chronicle Magician” once per turn.

Konami loves creating new support for the Dark Magician and Blue-Eyes White Dragon. This new support is a level seven spellcaster. The ultimate wizard in terms of attack and defense gains a new ally in Chronicle Magician. Chronicle Magician supports Dark Magician and Blue-Eyes White Dragon.

First Effect:

Chronicle Magician special summons himself in defense position from your hand if you normal or special summon a normal monster with 2,500 ATK or DEF. A special summon without a cost is a nice advantage because you do not pay any resources. Your field gains a free monster.

Furthermore, this effect supports Dark Magician and Blue-Eyes White Dragon. Dark Magician has 2,500 ATK and Blue-Eyes White Dragon has 2,500 DEF. They are the perfect monsters for this effect’s conditions.

In addition, Chronicle Magician is a natural fit in a deck with the Dark Magician. Spellcasters have a lot of support. You can easily special summon Dark Magician and then you can special summon Chronicle Magician.

Second Effect:

Chronicle Magician adds 2,500 ATK and DEF to a Dark Magician or Blue-Eyes White Dragon when you special summon him. You can deal massive damage to an opponent with Dark Magician or Blue-Eyes White Dragon. Their ATK would enable them to destroy most monsters in the game.

Furthermore Chronicle Magician’s first and second effects complement him. He special summons himself to the field and adds ATK to either Dark Magician or Blue-Eyes White Dragon. He triggers both of his effects on the same turn.

In addition, other cards can trigger the second effect of Chronicle Magician. Cards with the ability to special summon monsters perfectly set the conditions. Monster Reborn can special summon Chronicle Magician, and his second effect activates due to the special summon.
