Silent Magician: deck recipe

Tag Duel event guide!

Updated Information

  • Peten & Dark World Dealing combo part has been fixed.

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. 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.

However, Peten will not activate its effect while it used for the Special summoning of Silent Magician due to the missing timing.

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.

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

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.

Gee, playing good cards. How offensive. It's not like it's that difficult to obtain single copies of any of them, and they're good enough that they're worth prioritizing anyway. But sure, if it offends you to use cards like Mirror Wall, see how far stuff like Curse of Aging and Deal of Phantom get you.

use 3 silent mag lvl 4, 3 Lvl Up, 3 Maiden of Macabre, 2 Silent Mag lvl 8 if you have them, choose about 5-8 spells and traps that you own (mirror wall, enemy controller and Super rush headlong are the best right now-spend your gems/keys trying to get those. Windstorm from leveling up Mai is also really strong).

Maybe some darkflares to work that Kuribo-Dark/Magician-Light synergy. Maybe some trap card counter too, or at least more trap cards to discard with the ultimate providence, or Mirage dragon

Learnt the hard way, but this deck simply isn't viable if you're wanting to reach the upper ranks.

With so much card space taken up supporting and protecting LV8, even if you manage to consistently start with LV4, Level Up and Trap Jammer, the minute someone pulls out a Gale Lizard/Hane-Hane, or boost the attack of a BEWD/Buster Blader, you're screwed.

So I guess I'm gonna save my 7500 gems for the 200 box next. Was wondering if this deck gonna be a beast or garbage. Thanks for answering my question

I'm F2P and I'd used all I'd saved, figuring with making Yugi Moto a playable character this would be a viable pack. It might still be if someone can make a viable Ultimate Insect deck, but Silent Magician is trash unfortunately.

Maniac, what i found as really good for ultimate insect is just not running lvl 1 and 3, but insect imitation with 3 level 5 and 2 level 7. (Super rush headlong is ideal along with it) this way, sacrificing like a skull mark ladybug, you can use insect imi to summon a lvl 5 or grasschopper (optional) and then super rush to protect it, level up next turn to lvl 7. Pinch hopper is great too.

Hello Reply
Its pretty good but you should have 1 more Silent Lv 8 bc if for any reason it gets destroyed you need some backup. Also 1 more crystal seer should improve your combo potential. You should remove 1 heavy knight. Focus more in your combo

I think this is insane. Dimension gatw doesnt call banished Silent magician lv 8 back to field. Because it can't be special summoned other ways. Cmiiw

Can confirm. Dimension Gate doesn't recall banished Silent Magician LV 8 because it's technically not a recall effect--it's a special summon effect.

Interdimensional Matter Transporter works, however, because it IS a recall effect. It's just a temporary displacement from the field to the banish pile, back to the field--no special summons occur. Feel free to test it yourself!
