I'm not sure if I missed something, but I'm sure Duel monsters was called "Magic and Wizards" in voliume 2, so why is it called Duel monsters in voliume 4 - 5?

"Magic and Wizards" was the original name. Viz changed it to "Duel Monsters" since that was the name that was used in the Yu-Gi-Oh anime. The original manga, I believe, kept the name "Magic and Wizards" for the whole series.

By "The original manga" I assume you mean the japanese version?

Yeah, the game is referred to Magic and Wizards in the Japanese manga because it was actually a parody of Magic: The Gathering. :P Viz changed the game's name in later volumes (around the Duelist Kingdom arc).
