"Skilled Magician" (Japanese: (じゅく) (れん) Jukuren no) is a series of Level 4 LIGHT and DARK Spellcaster monsters. Each monster has an effect to gain 1 Spell Counter each time a Spell Card is activated (max. 3), as well as an effect to Tribute itself with 3 Spell Counters on it to Special Summon either a specific monster or a monster of a particular archetype from its controller's hand, Deck or Graveyard.

Each monster that can Special Summon monsters of a particular archetype rather than a specific monster has an additional effect: it can banish itself from the Graveyard to place a Spell Counter on one of its controller's face-up cards.

Each monster uses a different word for "Magician" in Japanese. In the names of the LIGHT monsters the kanji have the reading madōshi (まどうし), while in the names of the DARK monsters the kanji have the reading majutsushi (まじゅつし); however, all of the monsters use different kanji for the word "Magician".

Both "Skilled Dark Magician" and "Skilled White Magician" were characters in the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime.
