normal draw

The normal draw is the mandatory act by a player of drawing 1 card at the very beginning of that player's Draw Phase. Normally, cards and effects cannot be activated before the normal draw is conducted, with the sole exception of "Diabolos, King of the Abyss". (Effects such as those of "Hino-Kagu-Tsuchi" and "Maharaghi" activate before the Draw Phase begins, and are only applied before the normal draw, so they don't count.)

If a player would conduct their normal draw, but has no cards left in their Deck, they automatically lose the Duel.

Some cards allow the player do to something other than conducting the normal draw (most commonly returning themselves from the Graveyard to the hand), such as "Rank-Up-Magic Astral Force".

It is impossible to conduct a normal draw outside Draw Phase, yet some rulings still redundantly state "normal draw in Draw Phase."
