Card Rating:

Overall, Dark Magic Twin Burst provides a high reward with its offensive effect. Dark Magician’s ATK can rise to high levels with two or three copies of Dark Magician Girl in the graveyard. However, this spell card only offers offense. It is only useful in the middle to late stages of a game. I only recommend Dark Magic Twin Burst in casual decks.

Card Rating: 2 out of 5 stars (2 / 5)
