  • Special Summons any Normal Monsters from your Graveyard to the Field.


  • Can only be used on Normal Monsters.
  • Monsters Special Summoned by the effect of this card cannot attack.


  • You can include Silent Doom in a Gemini-type deck, whereby you can use it to Special Summon Blazewing Butterfly from the Graveyard, Normal Summon it to use its effect to Special Phoenix Gearfried or Darkstorm Dragon from Graveyard, and they become Effect monsters and are able to attack. (Blazewing Butterfly was unable to attack when you use Silent Doom on it)
  • You can use effects to flip your Special Summoned monster face-down, and flip it face up again to “break” the ties with Silent Doom, enabling them to attack. An example of such effect would be Desertapir.
  • This card will be very useful in Synchro Summons format, perhaps in the future when it is released.

Recommended Monsters

The reason of reviving Elemental HERO Neos is because of its ability to Contact Fusion a wide range of Elemental HERO Contact Fusion monsters. Blue-Eyes White Dragon has enough Dragon-type support to mill it to the Graveyard for you to Special Summon it, even though it cannot attack, you still can choose to use Burst Stream of Destruction to decimate all your opponent’s monsters. Similarly, Dark Magician can be Special Summoned, to be follow-up with cards such as Thousand Knives, Dark Magic Attack, subsequently you can use Dedication through Light and Darkness to tribute it, and summon Dark Magician of Chaos from your Hand, Deck, or Graveyard, thus enabling you to have a monster that can attack. As an defensive option, you can choose to use Silent Doom on Millennium Shield and Labyrinth Wall due to their high defense.


You can use Silent Doom on high Attack value Normal monsters such as Blue-Eyes White Dragon or Cosmo Queen, subsequently Tribute them to summon Great Maju Garzett, which will in turn receive Double of the Attack Value.


Since you will most likely be revolving around Normal monsters in your Deck with Silent Doom, you can opt to include more Normal Monster support cards. Birthright grants you more flexibility to Special Summon Normal Monsters from your Graveyard, without the side effects of Silent Doom. Soul Resurrection is basically a Trap Version of Silent Doom, so you can activate it during your opponent's turn.

  • The monsters Special Summoned by Silent Doom’s effect are unable to attack for the rest of the duel as long as they remain face-up on the Field. You can still change their battle position.

anyone else having issues with this card? used white elephants gift on my lev 4 normal monster then was going to use this to special summon it back on the field, but it wasn't working at all. Was my first turn so can't have been anything to do with my opponents card. Thoughts?

That's kinda strange. Did you use any other cards that turn? And what was the monster you tried to Special Summon?
What if my opponent takes control of a monster I summoned with silent doom can it attack?

Hate to say this but Kaiba breaks Ishizu's necklace future vision with this card (if u remember what he did with this card in anime)

He used it to summon gadget warrior from the graveyard then sacrifice it and obelisk to summon BEWD to attack Ishizu's LP directly.
This card might finally get it's time with Synchros. Very useful for reviving normal tuners, and better than Powerful Rebirth in situations where you don't want to increase the tuner's level.
So can it attack the next turn its summoned this way?

No, the monster brought back by this can't attack ever, unless it is flipped face-down, or it has left the field and come back again.

Send blue eyes via Darkworlddealing then revive it and play——advance draw/gift of the white elephant.

Soul Resurrection, dude who uploaded the picture posted wrongly
Can we change the monster's position to attack position?

Yes you can, but only next turn (use card effects if want on the same turn).

Note, it still cannot attack.

To enable it to attack, you need to remove it temporarily using dimension hole or something. When it comes back, it can attack.

Flipping it into face down also will enable it to attack when flipped face up again (i think)
A good card for my anime theme deck. yes, kaiba has a line using this card.
