Q&A Rulings

A: The effect of "Magicians' Combination" Special Summons a monster with a different name than the Tributed monster. In this scenario, since "Magician of Dark Illusion" was treated as "Dark Magician", the effect of "Magicians' Combination" must Special Summon a "Dark Magician Girl". (In this case, if you do not have a "Dark Magician Girl" to Special Summon, you cannot activate the effect of "Magicians' Combination" by Tributing "Magician of Dark Illusion".)[2][3]
