- This card can be searched by "Dogu", "Single Purchase", "Temple of the Kings", "Ties of the Brethren", "Painful Escape", "Transmodify", "Broken Blocker", "Serpentine Princess", "Vampire Dragon", "Dragunity Corsesca", "Arnis, the Empowered Warrior", "Dragodies, the Empowered Warrior", "Spellbook Star Hall", "The Grand Spellbook Tower", "Magician's Circle", "Mystic Tomato", "Chaos Zone", "Dark Horizon", "Dark Renewal", "Startime Magician", "Lemon Magician Girl", "Ebon High Magician", "Magician Navigation" and another "Apprentice Magician".
- Use its Spell Counter-generating effect to fuel cards like "Breaker the Magical Warrior", "Blast Magician", "Skilled Dark Magician", "Skilled White Magician", "Skilled Blue Magician" and "Royal Magical Library".
- Use "Creature Swap" in combination with this card to switch it for one of your opponent's monsters. You still get the monster summoned by "Apprentice Magician's" effect, since you are the original owner of "Apprentice Magician".
- You can normal summon this card, add a Spell Counter to a card (if you have one), activate "Magical Dimension" to Special Summon from your hand, high level Spellcaster type monsters like "Dark Magician", "Mutant Mindmaster", "Dark Magician Girl", and much more. You can destroy one monster on the field at the end.
- "Apprentice Magician"'s effect can be used well in a DARK attribute themed deck. You can send three Apprentices to the grave by their effects (and summon "Old Vindictive Magician" to destroy your opponent's monster). With more DARK monsters in the grave, you can use cards such as "The Dark Creator", "Dark Armed Dragon" and "Prometheus, King of the Shadows".
- After having two Apprentices destroyed in battle, you can activate "The Transmigration Prophecy" to send them back to your deck to be Summoned again once your third Apprentice is destroyed.
- To use the effect of "Apprentice Magician" efficiently, use it in a deck that uses Spell Counter Monsters such as "Breaker the Magical Warrior" or "Magical Marionette", and include "Magician of Faith", "Old Vindictive Magician" and "Crystal Seer" to have a different monster to search out for each situation.
- "Debris Dragon" can be particularly useful when combined with this card's "toolboxing" capabilities. You can search "Old Vindictive Magician", then Flip Summon it to destroy an opposing monster, Summon Debris and go for a Level 8 Synchro Summon like "Scrap Dragon" or even "Dark End Dragon". If you go for "Crystal Seer" instead, you could Summon "Black Rose Dragon" to clear the field or "Ancient Fairy Dragon" for the utility it provides, all while gaining an extra card in hand. Debris can also Summon Apprentice or Vindictive on a clear field to Summon "Orient Dragon" or "Iron Chain Dragon" as well.
- Use this card to great advantage when playing a Toolbox version of a deck that uses this. In addition to being able to search out monsters whose effects' can be used to destroy your opponent's monsters and further help your Spell Counter monsters, this card can search "Frequency Magician". The only problem is getting it flipped face up for the Synchro Summon. Using this with "Frequency Magician", in addition to the other monsters you could summon, make this card a very good choice.
- A great way to gain Spell Counters to remove for the effect of "Tempest Magician" is to play 3 "Apprentice Magicians", then use the last one's effect to Special Summon "Magical Plant Mandragola". This gives you 4 Spell Counters, which means 2000 damage.
- "Apprentice Magician" can be used for "Crush Card Virus".
- This card can be searched by "Spellbook of Judgment", "Sangan", "Last Will" and "Witch of the Black Forest"
