Third Effect:

The most impressive effect of Magician of Chaos is its ability to destroy a card when a Spell or Trap is activated. This ability can be used once per turn during either player’s turn. You gain a nice advantage from this effect. Magician of Chaos controls the field with the rule of his third effect. Magician of Chaos punishes an opponent for activating a Spell or Trap.

Furthermore, you may also activate this effect. You may play a Spell or Trap during either player’s turn. Then, Magician of Chaos will destroy one of the opponent’s cards.

Fourth Effect:

Magician of Chaos special summons a Ritual Monster with “Chaos” or “Black Luster Solider” in its name after he is destroyed. This effect also ignores the Ritual Monster’s summoning condition. Therefore, you do not need the correct Spell card for the special summon. You gain a new Ritual Monster with powerful effects. Your life points have protection with the replacement, and you have new advantages from the new monster’s effects.

For example, Magician of Chaos may special summon Black Luster Soldier – Super Soldier. The fourth effect ignores the summoning conditions of Black Luster Soldier – Super Soldier. You have a warrior with with the capability of inflicting a lot of damage.

However, an opponent can avoid this fourth effect if he or she banishes Magician of Chaos. The effect only activates when Magician of Chaos is destroyed by battle or a card’s effect. An opponent can remove this advantage by banishing this Ritual Monster.
