  • Able to destroy 1 set card on the field. This includes monsters that are set face-down.


  • This is not a Quick Spell therefore cannot be Chained to your opponent’s card effects.
  • You needs to discard 1 card when you use this card.
  • Can only destroy face-down Spell/Trap or a face-down monster.


  • This card is very good if your deck revolves around discarding cards to gain certain advantages. Otherwise it can burden your resources in order to use this card.
  • This card is mostly used in Dark World archetypes decks because they can benefit from being discarded from hand to activate their effects.

Discard options

The beginning of 1 of the Dark World deck combos is to discard Ceruli, Special Summon it to opponent’s field. Ceruli that was Special Summoned this way will force your opponent to discard a card from your hand.

When this card is discarded from your hand to the Graveyard, you can add 1 “Dark World” card from your Deck to your hand.

You can discard this card to the Graveyard, and Special Summon it to your field immediately.

When this card is sent to the graveyard, you can equip it to 1 face-upt monster and reduce its attack by 500.

When this card is sent to the graveyard, Special Summon 1 Dragon-type monster from your hand. You cannot attack this turn.

During your standby phase, since you discarded this card to the graveyard, this card will appear on your opponent’s field in ATK mode (this is not optional unless your opponent’s monster field is full), you can either use it to clog your opponent’s field, or you can attack into it and deal some damage.

You can activate its effect of switching either your own monster or your opponent’s monster’s position right away from the graveyard. Face-down monsters are flipped face up. Using this combo will allow you to attack using Chaos Hunter more strategically.

When this card is discarded to graveyard, special summon it to the field. Along with Chaos Hunter, this move gives you 2 monsters on the field, ready for a tribute summon play.

After discarding Silent Burning, you can banish it from the graveyard to draw another Silent Magician lv 4.

This card returns to the top of your deck once discarded.

Also Dark world dealings.

It largely depends on your deck setup. Generally speaking, tttd is better since you remove monster + dumping skull into grave. If you use lighting on spell/trap and opponent chain it then lighting = no effect.

But if you used other monsters that activate their effect on discard I.e. dark world, archfiend, fabled, bacon saver, etc; then DW dealing/ lighting is better.
Pure epicness

Is it worth getting 3 lightning now for a dark world deck, althoug dark world dealings can arrive in the next boxes? I have one lightning, I just got the second Snoww, and I wanted to know this so I did not feel like I wasted gems with a card that could become outdated.

Two tribute of the doom plus dark world lightning makes my plnat deck very happy :)
Too bad book of the moon is not in still not in this game. Not only is a good defensive card, but also works well with the dark world lightining

Why would you run this with kidmodo? You’ll lose your battle phase, better off with nobeman

I mean if you run mindscan and dark world lightning it could be a decent combo i mean i dont know about everyone else but i run an overpowered deck to get to platinum, and then I use purely fun decks.
Yeah maybe some people says "dark world is overrated, they're only tier 2". but this card is really usefull outside darkworld. theres a lot of cards that have effect when they're discarded, like fables (not yet in game).
oh ilove this card destroying floodgates wall of ds massive❤❤❤❤
this could be good with floodgate, for all you gold and lower this card works with floodgate, a card that destroys you kidmodo set we attack and yall summon blue eyes and we floodgate your blues eyes u rage lol get a good deck without equips and 21 or more cards

this card brings back so many memories for me <3
Should i get 2 of this or 3? Im planning to make a darkworld deck
Nobleman is still a bit better for most deck. if we get more Zombie or dragon support, then this will be a damn useful card for them

This is obviously support card for darkworld. If it can help zombie/dragon deck, imagine how much it will boost darkworld deck.
