Please note that Structure Deck EX cannot be purchased with Gems
Who should buy this deck?
This structure deck focuses on Silent Magician monsters making it an easy way for people to build a Silent Magician deck, without pulling through hundreds of Echoes of Silence packs. Gold Sarcophagus is a great way to search out any card from your deck and banishing them face-up could give you some cool interactions. Definitely a good addition to any Exodia decks, Mill decks, or any other decks that need that extra search without minding to stall. Also good for decks that can bring back their banished cards, to immediately make use of the search. The non-LV Silent Magician can be considered both a boost and a counter to Spellbooks. As a Spellcaster-type monster she has a Natural Synergy with Spellbooks, and with Spellbook's ability to keep hand advantage you can always keep her at a decent attack. Conversely, when used against a Spellbook deck she can efficiently stop Spellbook of Fate making the opponent's Spellbook deck much less threatening.
Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Must be Special Summoned (from your hand) by Tributing 1 Spellcaster-Type monster, and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways. This card gains 500 ATK for each card in your hand. Once per turn, during either player's turn, when a Spell Card is activated: You can negate the activation. If this card is destroyed by battle, or if this card in its owner's control is destroyed by an opponent's card effect: You can Special Summon 1 "Silent Magician" monster from your hand or Deck, except "Silent Magician", ignoring its Summoning conditions.
Before calling this pretty waifu "broken" you need to think this way:
1. What will happen if silent magician or SM Lv8 faces Amazoness swordwoman?, yes, opponent will take damage.
2. Is amazoness SW a popular card? Sure thing she is, 3. how can you bring back amazoness sw from graveyard? Using will power, pow rebirth or onslaught. 4.Is she able to negate those 3 traps?. Answer: hell no, and she won't be able to attack even a baby tiger if amazoness onslaught is on field.
As long as your deck relies on traps / multiple summoning, this card won't be a problem for you. So, it's pretty decent, but far from broken.
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 mean "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 !
*** MEANWHILE IN DUEL WORLD... ! ***
- Rex Raptor: Aaaahhhh!! What a beauty! Ok, I'm fossilized now! X_X!
- Jaden Yuki: ...! Oh boy! She can put up a good fight too...!
- Chazz Princeton: Wow! So pretty !!!
- Bandith Keith: AMERICAAAAAAAAAAAAaaaaa...!!!!
Then they start "Playing victim" to go away with their behavior, nice excuse for someone who only comes here to whine about duel links lol
I just cant believe this isnt available for purchase with gems. What a way to punish your users who have put in so much time to get the cards from echoes of silence already but now i guess big middle finger to us. Consistency is all im asking for....
