Silent Magician: deck recipe

Duel Links Breaking News
9th Mini Box: Resonance of Contrast!
update 31/08/2017


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


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.


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.

Konami holds the good cards until the last moment. 80 packs and not a silent lv4 magician. Is opening packages lucky? I think not.

It will brick hard. Try reducing your trap jammers to 1, and add some monsters with drawing power. Cards like Crystal Seer or Vortex Trooper may help. Additionally, a stall monster such as 3x Peten the Dark Clown may give you the turns you need to draw your cards needed for the combo
