Silent Magician: deck recipe

Duel Links Breaking News
Banlist update has been announced!
update 31/08/2017

Overview

The Main Goal of this deck is to summon your boss monster, Silent Magician LV8, and keep her alive to use as a beatstick. Balance is used to lessen your chances of a dead hand. Ideally, the best starting hand should at the very least have these: 1 Silent Magician LV4, 1 Level Up!, and 1 Dimension Gate, if not you can stall or improvise.

How to Use (Spellbound Silence Version)

Silent Magician

The Non-LV Silent Magician is the core of this deck, she serves as your main beater and protection against your opponent's spells. You are also allowed to summon multiple copies in one turn if you have enough Spellcaster-type monsters on the field guaranteeing that your opponent will not be able to activate their spell cards. But make sure to keep at least 2 cards in your hand so that she stays a decent 2000 attack beater on the field. If ever she is destroyed, you can special summon Silent Magician LV8 from your deck or hand which has 3500 attack and is immune to your opponent's spell effects.

Gravekeeper's Recruiter

Gravekeeper is the best card to use as cost for summoning Silent Magician in this deck because he can easily replenish himself by searching out another copy. If needed he can be used to tribute into the tricky, this might not be as good as special summoning The Tricky with his own effect but could prove effective when trying to maintain your hand size. Also if your opponent controls only a single monster, and you really need to get rid of that monster, you can use Treacherous Trap Hole to destroy your opponent's monster and Gravekeeper's Recruiter then search another copy to minimize the loss.

The Tricky

The Tricky is a good way to easily put a beater on the field while also sending a card to the graveyard. You can send Silent Burning to the graveyard and use it to search out a Silent Magician from your deck. You can also send Peten the Dark Clown to special summon another copy from your deck and use it as tribute for Silent Magician. Although, summoning The Tricky decreases your hand by 2 cards might be bad for your Silent Magician's stats so be careful when summoning The Tricky this way.

Peten the Dark Clown

Peten the Dark Clown is a good card to send to the graveyard because he can immediately special summon another copy of himself to the field. You can tribute Peten for the summoning of Silent Magician, then banish the Peten in your graveyard to special summon another Silent Magician from your hand and repeat. Another combo you can do if you didn't get Silent Magician in your starting hand is to send Peten to the graveyard with Dark World Dealings and draw a card (hoping it's Silent Magician), then use Peten's effect to special summon another copy of himself from the deck.

Trap Protection

Silent Magicians are great for dealing with spell cards but are very vulnerable to traps, that is why you need to use these cards to protect your boss monsters. Lyla. Lightsworn Sorceress destroys a spell/trap card on the field but puts herself at a vulnerable defense position after doing so. But since she is a Spellcaster, you can tribute her to summon Silent Magician after she destroys a card. It is best not to let her live till the end phase because she might mill your Silent Magicians, but if she is on your field during the end phase she can mill a Peten the Dark Clown to help you special summon and thin your deck. Fire Formation - Gyokkou pins down your opponent's set spell/trap card. meaning your opponent cannot use it while it is affected by Fire Formation Gyokkou.

Silent Burning

Silent Burning is an OTK enabler. First you special summon as many Silent Magicians as you can and keep beating down your opponent. Then when your victory is guaranteed, use everything you can to deal with your opponent's backrow and then activate Silent Burning. Your Silent Magicians will now be 4000 attack monsters, enough to finish off your opponent. Treacherous Trap Hole might be useful for clearing your opponent's monsters so that you can attack directly.

How to Use (Old Version)

Draw

If you don't immediately get Silent Magician LV4 and Level Up! in your starting hand, use draw cards to help you get them. Crystal Seer adds one of the top 2 cards of your deck to your hand. Prioritize cards that would help you summon Silent Magician LV8 first, then try to get Dimension Gate or a defense card.

Level Up

Getting 5 spell counters on Silent Magician LV4 is really slow and unrealistic, even with cards that help you gain spell counters, so using Level Up! on Silent Magician LV4 to special summon Silent Magician LV8 is the main play of this deck.

Defend

Defending Silent Magician LV4 while she still has few counters, or when she is changed to defense position, is really important.

Dodge harmful effects and attacks

Silent Magician LV8 is only immune to spell effects, which is really good but sometimes not enough. She is still vulnerable to trap and monster effects, especially ones that change her battle position. Gamushara fixes this and punishes your opponent for attacking her by doubling the damage. For harmful effects like "return to hand" or Mirror Wall, use Interdimensional Matter Transporter to dodge those cards. Interdimensional Matter Transporter can also be used to dodge an opponent's attack but you will still receive the attack directly or with another monster.

It could only either be that i misunderstood or made a mistake by doing it or the article above is wrong or invalid.
Observer 6days ago
I based this from the articles above:

1st under the Peten article states that:

You can tribute Peten for the summoning of Silent Magician, then banish the Peten in your graveyard to special summon another peten to be use in special summoning another Silent Magician from your hand and repeat. Which dont work under my experience.

2nd under the the Tricky article states that:

You can also send Peten the Dark Clown to special summon another copy from your deck and use it as tribute for Silent Magician. Which again does not work under my experience.

Note: Same issues says the same notice "You missed the activation timing".
Observer 6days ago
When special summoning Tricky by discarding Peten to graveyard it does not work and it says; you missed the activation timing. Another is when u tribute Peten to special summon Silent Magician it also says; u missed the activation timing. Why is it?

So dudes, I decided to destroy the myth behind Silent Magician and the "pay to win" issue; I tested if it was true, so I choose Cyber Angels, a Spell based deck. Took out Saffira and started playing, and guess what EVERY SINGLE TIME I FACED THAT POOR WIFE, I ENDED WINNING; because she's only able to negate spells ONCE PER TURN.

How do you say the card is too op?
I don't bother if these EX packs become series, they are exclusive cards for fans, who want to support the game. No one is forcing you to buy it, because it's not by any means "Overpowered".

So that's it, even Handicaped, with a Spell-based deck, and NO SAFFIRA AT ALL.
You can win against Silent Magician.
And these haters, yeah, these people that keep complaining. I'm afraid they have never played duel links; but they keep hating, trying to boycott the game for no reason.

Anyway, leaving these raging and incoherent folks aside, I wish you all happy dueling !

You cannot expect people to carry more spells on their deck. Some players do not even draw spells at all. Overall, silent magician and LV8 combos are too darn broken in this game.

I tributed peten the dark clown for silent magician but he didn’t activate his effect. It said I missed the timing. Did I do something wrong?

No. "Missing timing" is only a rule from TCG. http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Missing_the_timing

Well, if anything, the "wrong" thing here is not knowing the difference between "If" and "When".

But I'm sure it's something you'll easily learn :)

Why i cant activate my floodgate traphole when silent magician lv8 is special summoned by non lv silent magician
<< Anonymous

Because it is still the 'damage step' at that point. The only cards that can be activated at that time are Counter Traps and cards that alter ATK/DEF.

The anon above me is right. If you use a card effect to destroy it (widespread ruin or TTH) then you are able to floodgate the silent magician lv8 summoned by this since it is not in the "damage step".

The best counter against Silent LV8 is probably mirror wall. Then special summon monsters that can destroy a target. Silent magician deck is too broken overall.

Ha... That'd piss off the paying customers *for sure*. They'd be inviting disaster if they make that EX Structure Deck available for gems later.

And a refund option for those who got silent magician lvl 8 and magical examplar from the boxes.
