How to Use

Silent Magician

You can Special Summon Silent Magician by Tributing a Spellcaster-Type monster you control. If you want to avoid having your Spellbook Magician of Prophecy, Breaker the Magical Warrior or Kycoo the Ghost Destroyer destroyed or banished by your opponent before you are able to Tribute it, you can just Set it. Unless your opponent has the Toggle Button set to ON, they won’t be able to respond to your monster being Set and you will be able to Special Summon Silent Magician.

Silent Magician is able to, once per turn, negate the activation of a Spell Card. Since, after being negated, the card is simply sent to the Graveyard without being destroyed, you can safely use this effect on Geartown or Ancient Gear Fortress to prevent your opponent from Summoning an Ancient Gear Reactor Dragon.

While its original ATK and DEF are definitely on the low side, thanks to its effect, Silent Magician can quickly become a pretty big threat, gaining 500 ATK for each card in your hand. Thanks to Spellbook Magician of Prophecy and Spellbook of Secrets, which automatically replace themselves in your hand, your Silent Magician will consistently be able to get over most of your opponent’s monsters and, whenever that’s not possible, you can always rely on its floating effect. If Silent Magician is destroyed by battle or card effect, you can Special Summon a Silent Magician LV8 from your hand or Deck.

Searching

  • When it’s Normal Summoned or flipped face-up, Spellbook Magician of Prophecy allows you to add from your Deck to your hand a “Spellbook” Spell Card. If you can’t Summon Silent Magician, you can use Spellbook of Fate’s effect to flip Spellbook Magician of Prophecy face-down to prevent some damage while also getting to add another card to your hand via its effect.

  • Spellbook of Secrets allows you to add from your Deck to your hand any “Spellbook” card, including Spellbook Magician of Prophecy.

  • After activating Spellbook of Secrets, you can use Spellbook of the Master to copy its effect and add another “Spellbook” card to your hand. Thanks to Spellbook of the Master, you can bypass the “once per turn” restriction that most “Spellbook” Spell Cards have.

  • Spellbook of Power increases the ATK of one your Spellcaster-Type monsters by 1000 until the End Phase and, if it destroys an opponent’s monster by battle, it also allows you to add a “Spellbook” card from your Deck to your hand.

The first thing you probably noticed is just how many cards in this deck lead into the next one. Thanks to Spellbook Magician of Prophecy and Spellbook of Secrets, thinning your Deck and setting up your Graveyard is particularly easy.

Spellbook of Fate

Spellbook of Fate has three different effects:

  • If you banish 1 “Spellbook” Spell Card from your Graveyard, you can return a Set Spell/Trap Card on the field back into its controller’s hand;
  • If you banish 2 “Spellbook” Spell Cards from your Graveyard, you change the Battle Position of a monster on the field to face-up Attack or face-down Defense;
  • If you banish 3 “Spellbook” Spell Cards from your Graveyard, you can banish a card your opponent controls.

The third effect does not target and it can be used on both monsters and Spell/Trap Cards, so it’s the one you are going to use most of the times, but you should always keep in mind that it is pretty versatile.

You can return Breaker the Magical Warrior or Kycoo the Ghost Destroyer from your hand to your Deck to add a copy of Silent Magician from your Deck to your hand or vice versa. Light and Dark significantly increases your chances of being able to Summon a Silent Magician on Turn 1, whose effect can then be used to negate cards like Neos Fusion and Red-Eyes Fusion.

After being a meta for almost a whole year... it was nice to see how this Free-to-Play friendly deck survived for so long. It was not even tier 1, but plenty of noobs got owned by it lul

If Spellbook is used in anime probably a duel with the user takes 10 episodes.

That's why Spellbook/Prophecy was given to a filler character with off-screen duel XD

All we saw is that's he and his Prophecy monster practically would have been defeated by Ancient Gear Triple Hunting Hound, had Yugo didn't come in and interrupted the attack with Speedroid Menko.

Cause blueboy is an SR and Konami will not hit archetype SR, the only time they’ll hit an SR is that it’s a generic one like trunade.

That broken magician can be special summoned using any spellcaster, can negate spell once every turn and can be suicided to get 3500ATK onto the field. I'm hoping that it will be limited one day.

Konami nerf spellbook but not broken magician. Soon those kids will be able to play that broken card in a magician deck and they will completely forget spellbook. Spellbook is dead but silent magician still alive.

If you plan on running the magician of dark illusion variant I'd suggest running a spellbook of life because once your magician dies theres no real way of winning

If anything, this deck was slow but I never really found it challenging or unbeatable, just slow

It is possible to stall Koaki decks with some Canadias/Floodgates/Kuribos

Spellbooks shit on everything you put on the table.

The other day I faced a pretty awesome Spellbook dekc that used Mythical Beast Cerberus as main beater

His Cerberus went to over 4000 ATK in just one turn

"Unga Bunga deck"

See, I love this, because players like you make fun of silly decks, but whine about Tier 1 and 2 decks. So what is a good deck to you?
