Enemy Controller cannot be used on Silent Magician Lv 8, effectively disabling your opponent’s option to switch or take control of your Silent Magician Lv 8. Similarly, Super Rush Headlong’s effect does not affect Silent Magician Lv 8 therefore it cannot be destroyed by Super Rush Headlong.
This card can still be targeted by your opponent's spell cards, but not affected by them. This means that your opponent can use cards like Soul Exchange, but unable to use it as tribute.
However, Silent Magician Lv 8 is still vulnerable to position switching Trap cards such as Windstorm of Etaqua, Curse of Anubis or Pulse Mines. Other alternatives is to use monster effects like Black Brachio to switch Silent Magician Lv 8 to DEF position.
If you are including this monster in Spellbook deck, be reminded it cannot be Special Summoned via Spellbook of Life’s effect.
Level Modulation ignores the summoning condition of LV monsters. You can use it to special summon Silent Magician LV8 from your Graveyard at the cost of your opponent drawing 2 cards. Also, Silent Magician LV8 cannot attack, nor activate or apply its effect this turn.
Since it's unaffected by your opponent's spell cards, it can only be stopped by their trap cards, and also Sphere Kuriboh. Bringing cards like Trap Jammer, or Seven Tools of the Bandit will almost ensure that your attack will go through. While Divine Wrath can stop cards like Sphere Kuriboh, Yomi Ship / Exploder Dragon, or Relinquished / The Atmosphere.
Since it's a quick-play spell card, you can use it during your opponent's turn to save your monster when you think it's in danger. Additionally, you can also use it during your turn after you attack with a higher level monster, then activate level down to special summon your lower level monster for extra damage. This is only recommended when you are certain that your attack will go through.
Restart Can be used only once after starting hands are dealt. Reveal and redraw your starting hand.
Highkey made it completely impossible to beat. If you beat it somehow I hate you.
As if this piece of crap wasn't broken enough there's now her cheating asshole brother who's even more cancerous. The next Tag duel event will likely have the cancer Yugi team have a skill that plays 3 of them at once.
This broken cancer cheating destroyed the tag event, making it completely unbeatable. The cheating Yugis pull one from the middle of nowhere... and Last Day of the Witch doesn't do a single thing to her. I swear the little Yugi has the most cancerous cards ever.
Yeah, because Trap Cards don't exist, right? Wall of Disruption, Windstorm of Etaqua, Curse of Anubis, Mirror Wall, Security Orb, Michizure... There's tons of counters you could've run. Sphere Kuriboh's also a thing (though less effective in tag duels since your hand's only available half the time).
All of those useless if you don't draw it... not even Restart guarantees it. You couldn't just fight that cancer team over and over because one loss to the cancer before them and you had to start all over.
really? can be summoned by one shit lvl 4 monster, and have immunity from all spells, with 3500 damage, that is insane, must be nerfed for sure.
love this card, but wish people would read it's effect when I summon it. it's no longer funny and kinda sad people surrender just cause their enemy controller did not work. 90% of my wins just from that. Also wish duel links would have the card flash like other effects cards so people would get the hint, seriously had a person use enemy controller followed by dark core before tossing the rest of their hand with wonder balloons and then surrendering.
During our own battle phase, it is always best to make sure that no Spell/Trap cards from opponent can be activated. The only thing that will keep Silent Magician from destroying cards other than Sphere Kuriboh are monster cards that are set to destroy/remove monsters that will destroy them.
Dark Necrofears effect didn't work on this card. Is this a bug? It says that Silent Magician is unaffected by spells but this clearly is a monster effect. Also Dark Necrofear just changes control of the monsters and doesn’t special summon it again. So it should have worked, shouldn't it? I lost the duel because of this...
let read rule book: http://www.yugioh-card.com/uk/rulebook/V7_English_Rlbk_lores.pdf check on page 47 --
In addition to Equip Spell Cards, sometimes Trap Cards or Monster
Cards are treated as an Equip Card; and the rules about Equip Spell
Cards apply to them. The term “Equip Card” includes both those
cards and Equip Spells.
i had a problem with this, i couldve won the entire duel with it, he had a dark magician and i choose to target it, but nothing happened. he didnt activate a trap or anything the effect just didnt work
it can be summoned from deck directly>>? must remove this, unfair.
