[DP23] Faithful Servant

The last Yugi card is here, and its another reference to an anime idiom.

DP23-JP003 Tamashii no Shimobe | Servant of the Soul/Faithful Servant
Quick-Play Spell
You can use the (2)nd effect with this card’s name only once per turn.
(1) Place on top of the Deck 1 card from your hand, Deck, or GY that has the name “Dark Magician” or specifically lists the card(s) “Dark Magician” and/or “Dark Magician Girl” in its text, except “Faithful Servant”.
(2) During your Main Phase: You can banish this card from your GY; draw cards equal to the number of “Palladium Oracle” monsters, “Dark Magician”, and/or “Dark Magician Girl” with different names on the field and in the GYs.

Notes: the idiom hinted at earlier is how in the anime Dark/Yami Yugi speaks about Dark Magician, which is a posthumous incarnation of Mahad, a high priest who served Pharaoh Atem (Dark Yugi’s living self) in ancient Egypt. The idiom may refer to a belief back then that, even in the afterlife, a pharaoh would need servants – initially this led to royal entourages being sacrificed upon their ruler’s death, but later on this practice was mercifully replaced by burying figures modeled after that entourage alongside him.

His prodigious talent for reading Sunriseland Runes made him shine during the dreadful "2018 Christmas Incident". As an Italian, he's a fierce opposer to pineapple pizza and ashamed of Italian YGO.
