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

[Spellcaster/Effect]

ATK/800 DEF/600

Once per turn: You can Tribute 1 “Magician Girl” monster, except “Lemon Magician Girl”; add 1 Spellcaster-Type monster from your Deck to your hand. Once per turn, if this card is targeted for an attack: You can Special Summon 1 Spellcaster-Type monster from your hand, but its effects (if any) are negated, then change the attack target to it, and if you do, the attacking monster’s ATK becomes half its current ATK.

Lemon Magician Girl is a member of the Magician Girl archetype. Yugi plays her in his current deck. I like her adorable artwork. It fits the archetype’s theme and style. She lacks a strong offense, but she makes up for it in her effects.

History

Lemon Magician Girl appears in Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions. Yugi summons her during his duel against Seto Kaiba. She joins her fellow Magician Girls as they lead Yugi’s epic comeback! Yugi activates Lemon Magician Girl’s special effect to special summon Dark Magician Girl. Then, he destroys Seto Kaiba’s Blue-Eyes Chaos MAX Dragon. Seto cannot believe his almighty Ritual Monster is destroyed by the Magician Girls.

First Effect

Lemon Magician Girl’s first effect is lackluster and you will rarely use it. The effect tributes one Magician Girl and adds a spellcaster from your deck to hand. You are trading a monster on the field for a monster in your deck. The effect helps you search for one of your deck’s best monsters. Then, you can summon it when you meet its requirements.

However, I do not like Lemon’s Magician’s first effect because it is counterproductive. I do not want to tribute a Magician Girl to search for a monster. It is misusing a resource to search for a new resource. I want to tribute my monsters for summoning my best monsters. Furthermore, you need the monster to summon the spellcaster that you searched for.

Second Effect

Lemon Magician Girl’s best feature is her second effect. It special summons a spellcaster from your hand when your opponent attacks Lemon Magician Girl. Furthermore, her effect redirects the attack at your new monster, and halves the ATK of your opponent’s monster. Your new spellcaster should be able to destroy your opponent’s monster. Lemon Magician Girl’s effect is an effective counter in games.

Furthermore, you play the strategy of stalling for time. An experienced player is not going to attack Lemon Magician Girl. He or she will either destroy her by their card’s effect or banish her to avoid her second effect. You can stall the game to gather resources for a few turns. Then, you can counter your opponent’s board.

Card Rating

Overall, Lemon Magician Girl is a cute card, and her second effect is her best ability. I would play her in a deck for Magician Girls or Dark Magician. She has fantastic chemistry with those two archetypes. However, her first effect is not good in my opinion. She is only worth playing for her second effect.

Card Rating: 3 out of 5 stars (3 / 5)
