OtherSpellbound Silence [UR]




  • Able to negate a Spell card from your opponent once per turn without any cost.
  • Can be special summoned by tributing 1 Spellcaster monster on your Field.


  • ATK increase is dependant on the number of cards in your hand.
  • Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set nor Special Summoned by any other ways.
  • Weak base ATK and DEF stats.


  • Lyla, Lightsworn Sorceress is also another Spellcaster-type monster frequently used in Archfiends or Spellbook decks due to its ability to destroy 1 Spell/Trap card your opponent controls. Simply use its effect and you can Tribute it to Special Summon Silent Magician to the Field.
  • Always try to keep at least 2 cards in your hand, so that your Silent Magician can maintain around 2000 ATK to stand a better survival chance on the Field, in which the more cards you have, the stronger Silent Magician’s ATK will be.
  • Negating key Spell cards from your opponent during either player’s turn will significantly disrupt their strategy and greatly increase your card advantage.
  • You cannot negate the effects of spell cards that are already face-up on the field like with continuous spells and field spells.

Spellbook Synergy

This 2 monsters are the common opening Spellcaster-type monsters in a Spellbook deck. You can Normal Summon Spellbook Magician of Prophecy and use its effect to search for any Spellbook card, then tribute it to Special Summon Silent Magician from your hand. If you use Fool of Prophecy, you can use its effect to excavate 1 “Spellbook” Spell card from your Deck to the Graveyard, subsequently tribute it to Special Summon Silent Magician from your hand. Since Silent Magician is also a Spellcaster-type monster, you can continue to use your Spellbook Spell cards combo, like Spellbook of Secrets, Spellbook of the Master, Spellbook of Eternity, Spellbook of Power and Spellbook of Fate. However, you cannot Special Summon Silent Magician by using Spellbook of Life.

Silent Magician LV8

When the non-LV Silent Magician is destroyed, she special summons Silent Magician LV8 from your hand or deck. She has a powerful 3500 attack that is immune to your opponent's spell cards making her a great beater, but be careful of your opponent's trap cards. Also keep in mind that Silent Magician needs to be destroyed for you to activate her special summoning effect.

Silent Burning

Silent Burning gives both you and your opponent a full 6 cards in both hands. This turns Silent Magician into a 4000 attack monster so you can try to OTK your opponent before they have a chance to use the extra draws Silent Burning gave them. While in the graveyard you can also banish Silent Burning to search your deck for another Silent Magician.

That Grass Looks Greener

You can use both Silent Magician and Silent Burning in a 30 card Grass Spellbook deck. That Grass Looks Greener would mill Silent Burning along with other cards. You can then banish Silent Burning in your graveyard to Search out Silent Magician from your deck. This might be risky though since there is a possibility to mill all your Silent Magicians.


Like Spellbooks, Gravekeepers are a Spellcaster centered archetype, but their specialty is in gaining advantage through their tribute summons. Gravekeepers don't really have high attack monsters they can tribute into, which can be solved by Silent Magician because of her ability to gain attack depending on your hand size. The additional effect of turning into Silent Magician LV8 with 3500 attack also helps with Gravekeeper's lack of beaters. The main card to synergize with Silent Magician would be Gravekeeper's Recruiter, tribute him to summon Silent Magician and search your deck for another Gravekeeper. Gravekeeper's Chief also helps give you more field presence that you can tribute into Silent Magician.

So many retards complain about this card that is not even broken, card description clearly says 1 per turn.
If I'd have to complain, it'd be about Dyna Fur Hire and the Nerf of Balance and Restart; now you can't even see your opponent's cards wtf man...

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 WAIFU, 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 !

So many players are playing this p2w deck with this card in it. 3 Silent Magician and 2 or 3 Silent Magician LV8.

But they still loose to my Frog-Monarch deck with my 3 Toon Barrel Dragon and 3 Sphere Kuriboh.

Lol at you ! 5days ago
Lol! I can't believe these haters came to this section to keep their dumb hating.

It doesn't matter if EX packs become series AS LONG AS THE META CONTINUES TO BE F2P.
You don't base your opinions based on facts, because if you would do so, you surely know how duel links has been since its release.
1st. Blue-eyes deck + champions vigilance, it was free.
Then Cyber Angels, they were free 2 play.
Then ALIENS, again, f2p.
Then Sylvans.
Then Amazoness.

AND DO YOU COMPLAIN? Certainly, you have no reason here.

if you want to counter this card, use trap-based decks like chain reaction, amazoness or an effect based deck such as sylvans.
