Yu-Gi-Oh/Dark Magician Deck


Hey there, Exo. I come to you today hoping you can help me build a deck from scratch. I want to build a Dark Magician deck for not so competitive duels with my friends, but I'm not sure what the best way to go about this is. I want to make it as competitive as it can get, but don't know what style would go best for that. I was thinking maybe spell books or chaos, but again, I'm not sure exactly where to start. Money isn't a problem and this is for advance format. Thanks for your help and I eagerly await your response.

Dark Magician is going to work best with Prophecy.
The issue with that is that it's often a Prophecy deck with Dark Magician in it rather than a Dark Magician deck supported by Prophecy.
The below deck aims to summon Dark Eradicator Warlock and then burn out your opponent with Spellbook Normal Spell cards.
It looks like this:

1 Dark Eradicator Warlock
2 Dark Magician
3 Temperance of Prophecy
3 Spellbook Magician of Prophecy
2 Justice of Prophecy

3 Spellbook of Secrets
3 Spellbook of the Master
3 Spellbook Library of the Crescent
2 The Grand Spellbook Tower
2 Spellbook of Wisdom
1 Spellbook of Power
1 Spellbook of Eternity
1 Spellbook of Fate
1 Spellbook of Life
3 Pot of Duality
1 Book of Moon

3 Fiendish Chain
2 Mirror Force
1 Torrential Tribute
1 Solemn Warning
1 Bottomless Trap Hole

Give it a go, see what you think.

I'm able to answer any and all questions related to the English Yu-Gi-Oh! game itself. This includes, but isn't limited to:

Deck Fixes: Either making suggestions and improvements on a deck you've already built, or building a deck from scratch for you. In either case, please give an idea of the kind of deck you're building, the level of play you're planning to use it in (small tournaments, regionals etc), and the kind of budget you're on.
Please format decks in a way that's easy to read. Each card name should be on its own line, with a number before it indicating how many you're playing. Please split decks into Monsters, Spells and Traps.

NOTE: A level of reasonability is assumed with this. I cannot build you a nationals winning deck based on monsters whose name starts with the Letter 'A' on a budget of 4($6)... Nor will I generally respond well to Questions touting "No Xyz, Synchro... etc" or disallowing cards from certain parts of the show. I haven't seen the show in a number of years and find these conditions to usually be poorly-defined.

Rulings: On any card interacting with any other card(s). Tell me the scenario, and I'll tell you what happens.

I won't be answering questions on whether a trade is fair or not, or on how much X-card is worth, as both these kinds of question can be answered by using Ebay's completed listings page.
