Dark Magician and Black Luster Soldier are two of the most powerful monsters in Yugi’s deck. They fuse into the dynamic fusion monster, and they are Master of Chaos! This fusion monster of Dark Magician and Black Luster Soldier has three powerful effects! Master of Chaos is an easy card to play due to Dark Magician’s fantastic support.

The stellar artwork for Master of Chaos has inspiration of a fusion between Dark Magician and Black Lust Solider. It is the perfect design for this fusion monster because it fits the theme. The Dark Magician is wearing armor the same style as Black Luster Soldier.

First Effect:

Master of Chaos establishes your field and strategy. This fusion summon special summons one light or dark monster from your graveyard when you special summon this fusion monster. It is an effective ability to gain a monster for free. You may reapply one of your monsters from early in the duel.

Furthermore, this effect may slightly offsets the cost for the fusion summon with Dark Magician as fusion material. You may use this effect to special summon Dark Magician from the graveyard after fusion summon. You regain the monster from the fusion summon.

In addition, this effect sets up the second effect. You have half of the cost for the second effect. Master of Chaos requires you to control one Light and one Dark monster.

Second Effect:

Master of Chaos controls the field with his powerful second effect. This spellcaster tributes one of your light monsters and one of your dark monsters, and he banishes all of your opponent’s monsters. Master of Chaos demolishes the opponent’s strategy and removes their resources from the game.

Therefore, you have a path to victory. The opponent has a field without a single monster. Master of Chaos and your additional monsters may directly attack the opponent. They can deliver massive damage. Master of Chaos inflicts 3,000 points of damage from a direct attack.

Furthermore, this effect has a devastating ability against opponents with swarm decks. These decks rely on a field with many monsters. Master of Chaos perfectly counters these decks because he banishes all of these monsters.

However, opponents can avoid this effect when they prevent the summons of your light and dark monsters. Opponents can play cards such as Trap Hole to destroy a monster when you summon it. Master of Chaos requires monsters with these attributes. You are unable to activate this effect without the two monsters for the tribute.

Third Effect:

Master of Chaos returns a useful resource after you lose this monster. Master of Chaos allows you to add a spell card from your graveyard when he is destroyed by battle or an effect. The effect uses the graveyard as a source for resources. You may add a powerful card from the graveyard and play it again during the duel.

Furthermore, you can add any spell card from your graveyard to your hand. This condition provides a lot of options. You can add cards such as Monster Reborn and the Spellbook of Life to your hand.

Fusion Summon:

Master of Chaos has many methods for his fusion summon. it is a fairly simple monster to play from the extra deck. The fusion summon of Master of Chaos requires Dark Magician and one ritual monster with Chaos or Black Luster Soldier in its name.

The Eye of Timaeus is the most effective method for the fusion summon of Master of Chaos. You only need two cards for this this method. The Eye of Timaeus uses only the Dark Magician as fusion material. Then, The Eye of Timaeus fusion summons Master of Chaos.

In addition, Polymerization is a secondary option. It is an less effective option than The Eye of Timaeus. You would need all of the materials for the fusion summon with Polymerization. Your would need the materials on the field or in your hand.

Support:

Master of Chaos perfectly fits in the archetype of Dark Magician. This spellcaster has solid support. Dark Magician’s support, Spellbook, and generic cards support Master of Dark Chaos. You can consistently play this fusion monster and create strong combos.

For instance, Spellbook of Wisdom provides protection for spellcasters such as Master of Chaos. Spellbook of Wisdom prevents the opponent’s traps or spells from affecting Master of Chaos. This protection is a advantage after Master of Chaos banishes all of the opponent’s monsters.
