Magical Scientist

Magical Scientist is one of the most powerful common cards in the game. Using him, you can make a deck that can kill an opponent so fast they won't have time to react. Here is an example of a speed Magical Scientist deck.

Monsters (5-6): (4)
1x Jinzo
3x Catapult Turtle

Monsters (1-4): (14)
1x Magical Scientist
3x Mystic Tomato
1x Witch of the Black Forest
1x Sangan
3x Cannon Soldier
2x Marauding Captain
3x Gilasaurus

Magic (Spells): (15)
3x Last Will
1x Pot of Greed
1x Graceful Charity
1x Raigeki
1x Dark Hole
3x Mystical Space Typhoon
1x Mirage of Nightmares
1x Painful Choice
1x The Forceful Sentry
2x Poison of the Old Man

Traps: (7)
1x Mirror Force
2x Torrential Tribute
1x Imperial Order
3x Waboku

total: 40

Fusion Deck:
3x Punished Eagle
3x Dark Flare Knight
3x Empress Judge
3x Roaring Ocen Snake
3x Dark Balter the Terrible
3x Ryu Senshi
3x Thousand Eyes Restrict

Idealy, you want to start with a hand of: cannon soldier and 2 last wills, and you will win because:

1. you summon the soldier
2. you sacrifice him to his effect
3. activate 2 last wills to summon your scientist and turtle
4. summon as many fusion monsters as your life points will let you
5. launch them with the turtle
6. launch the scientist and turtle with the turtle's effect

If this is not your opening hand, you basically stall using:

Mirror Force and Waboku to block attacks
Poison of the Old Man to keep your lifepoints high
Pot of Greed, Graceful Charity, Mirage of Nightmares, and Painful Choice to whittle down your deck
Witch and Sangan to fetch the Scientist
Mystic Tomato to fetch the Scientist or Cannon soldier
Also, use Thousand Eyes Restrict to absorb monsters and attack other monsters your opponent controls
Use Balters and Ryu Senshis to deny your opponents of effects and traps.

This deck is about as cheesy as they come. It does not take a lot of practice to perfect it. As always, if you do not like a certain card, you can replace it with stalling cards such as Swords of Revealing Light or Gravity Bind.
