How to Use

Silent Magician

Silent Magician
Silent Magician
LIGHT Spellcaster ★4
ATK 1000 / DEF 1000
Spellbound Silence [UR]
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.

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

Spellbook Magician of Prophecy
WATER Spellcaster ★2
ATK 500 / DEF 400
Visions of Ice [SR]
Selection Box Vol. 02 [SR]
When this card is Normal Summoned or flipped face-up: Add 1 "Spellbook" Spell Card from your Deck to your hand.
  • 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
Spellbook of Secrets
Normal Spell
Visions of Ice [SR]
Selection Box Vol. 02 [SR]
Add 1 "Spellbook" card from your Deck to your hand, except "Spellbook of Secrets". You can only activate 1 "Spellbook of Secrets" per turn.
  • Spellbook of Secrets allows you to add from your Deck to your hand any “Spellbook” card, including Spellbook Magician of Prophecy.
Spellbook of the Master
Spellbook of the Master
Normal Spell
Visions of Ice [N]
If you control a Spellcaster-Type monster: You can reveal 1 other "Spellbook" card in your hand, then target 1 "Spellbook" Normal Spell Card in your Graveyard, except "Spellbook of the Master"; this card's effect becomes that target's effect. You can only activate 1 "Spellbook of the Master" per turn.
  • 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
Spellbook of Power
Normal Spell
Visions of Ice [R]
Target 1 Spellcaster-Type monster you control; until the End Phase, it gains 1000 ATK. Also, until the End Phase, each time it destroys an opponent's monster by battle: You can add 1 "Spellbook" Spell Card from your Deck to your hand. You can only activate 1 "Spellbook of Power" per turn.
  • 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
Spellbook of Fate
Quick Spell
Visions of Ice [R]
If you control a Spellcaster-Type monster: You can banish up to 3 "Spellbook" Spell Cards from your Graveyard; apply this effect, depending on the number of Spell Cards banished for this card's activation. You can only activate 1 "Spellbook of Fate" per turn.
● 1: Return 1 Set Spell/Trap Card to the hand.
● 2: Change 1 monster on the field to face-down Defense Position or face-up Attack Position.
● 3: Banish 1 card your opponent controls.

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.

Lightsworn Engine

You can only use this effect of "Raiden, Hand of the Lightsworn" once per turn. Once per turn, during your End Phase: Send the top 2 cards of your Deck to the Graveyard.

With the nerf of Light & Dark, it's actually plausible to use other skills again.

Spellbooks might need a bit of revising since the turn1 potential of getting Silent Magician is shot down quite a bit.

I still think, even with the nerf, Spellbooks is still pretty high up there on the tier list.

For now, if you feel like trying to get lucky, you can simply use Cosmic Cyclone or something, as skill fuel.

If I don't have Kycoo or Breaker the Magical warrior, will another level 4 dark spellcaster work as a substitute?

Also I saw a vagabond that had 3 prismatic silent magicians. isn't that crazy? Was there like a card trader upgrade available at some point or do you think he spent a lot of cash to get them?

It will work, however not for tournaments.

Do you think another substitute will work as long as it does the same thing: Banish your monsters from graveyard, Would a spell like creeping darkness work? or summoning curse?

"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?

What's the point of silent magician v8 if it can't be summoned? Or can it be summoned?

Silent Magician, when destroyed by battle or by an opponent's card effect while in its owner's possession, can special summon any "Silent Magician" monster, except for itself, IGNORING ITS SUMMONING CONDITIONS.

We might have to wait a few days in order to know what's going to be in the next Main Box. They added some "Fortune Lady" cards, some of which I believe can actually be obtained via the Event. Spellbook of Knowledge might still be confirmed for Valhallla Calling.

Spellbook of Knowledge is removed from the box.

It might have been too good. They are probably going to keep it for the next Mini Box.

Wow, people do really believe every BS they read. Can't wait for the next silly theory.
It's very efficient. You can end your duels very fast and have a consistent deck.
Hours if you try it in normal fight. But less than 10 minutes if you do it in EX fight since you ...
