General description:
Dark Magician of Chaos (DMoC) is, in my mind, the best card in the Invasion of Chaos booster set and one of the best cards in the entire game. It can be used in a number of decks, like a good Spellcaster Deck. With all the spells you'll need for those spellcasters, you'll need to recycle them with DMoC's effect. It's so playable and so good, it might be banned soon for its "remove from play" attack and spell reserection.

In a Spellcaster Deck, use Dark Magician and Dedication through Light and Darkness to summon him, then reserect a spell card, like Lightning Vortex, to clear the field and do some real damage. Also with its attack, it can nulify the effects of monster cards that only activate in the graveyard, like Mystic Tomato.

Strategies and game play:
If your opponent has 2 or more spell/trap cards face down, reserect a card like Heavy Storm to blow them away and leave your opponent with no protection. Say if your opponent has some face down monsters, then make sure you have a Ceasefire to keep DMoC alive and do some serious damage with Ceasefire alone, then do more damage with DMoC's attack.

Combos with other cards:
Strike Ninja+D. D. Scout Plane=instant DMoC tribute summon
DMoC+Diffusion Wave-Motion=REMOVE FROM PLAY MACHINE!!!

This one is in the traditional format:
Use Painful Choice and choose 3 DMoCs and 2 crapy cards because he won't choose the DMoC at all because he knows it's too good, but that's all part of the plan! Make sure you have a Monster Reborn to Reborn all 3! How is this possible? Just Reserect Monster Reborn until you have all 3 on the field. When the final DMoC is summoned, take back a Raigeki or Harpie's Feather Duster to clear the field and attack for an instant win!!

Ways to counteract it:
Use Strike Ninja and D. D. Scout planes to get a awsome tribute monster strong enough to kill DMoC, like Great Maju Garzett. Make sure you tribute Strike Ninja to summon him. You could also use flip effects, like Penguin Soldier, to remove him from play. The reason why it won't go to your hand, is since it is "removed from the field," it is automaticlly removed from play! Later, use Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8 to stop it from coming back with a Dimension Fusion.

With it's 2800 ATK power, it'll be literally invincable when it hits the field. Even if your opponent uses zero gravity, it can withstand itself with it's 2600 DEF points.

It's only weakness I see is when its removed from the field with a penguin soldier or a kelbek, it's removed from play rather than going back to the owners hand.

It's only available in Ultra Rare from Invasion of Chaos and Dark Revelation Volume 2 since they didn't invent "Ultiamate Rare" until the next booster set.

Artwork and aesthetics:
It's artwork shows its true, pure, dark power.

Overall rating:
15/10 Like I said, "It's so good, it should be banned soon."

Your card review is titled: "Dark Magician Of Chaos: DMoc, the most playable magician in tournament play."

I would have to disagree with that statement! In my opinion the best tournament level spellcaster's are:

1.) Breaker the Magical Warrior
2.) Magician of Faith
3.) Gravekeeper's Spy
4.) Dark Magician of Chaos
5.) Injection Fairy Lily

The first two on the list are SO much better than any of the others though.

I liked your review though and gave you a great rating on it, but just think that you are overstating how good it is. It is a great card, but it's not awesome.
