  • Good for removing cards from your opponent’s field.
  • Third effect banishes and does not target.


  • Requires that you remove Spellbooks from the graveyard to activate effect.


Retrieving Banished Spellbooks

Use these cards to retrieve your banished Spellbook cards. Spellbook of Eternity adds a banished Spellbook spell card back to hand. Wheel of Prophecy, when special summoned by another Spellcaster-type monster, allows you to return as many banished Spellbook spell cards back to the deck and return the rest of them to your graveyard.


Here are some Spellbook spell cards that support the Prophecy Archetype and Spellcasters in general. Remove them from the Graveyard to activate the effect of Spellbook of Fate.

This is one of the cards for people that are missing a pair of danglers
This card is the only reason that SB is even good, a quick play banish is sometimes all it takes to turn the duel around. Unfortunately for this deck users it’s only a rare card, so it’s a prime target to get limited or even forbidden when it’s this decks turn to get nurfed.

I think that's the point. Konami released cards like Onslaught, Fate, and Mayhem/Dyna/Wiz as R so that they can be hit later on.

You're right.
I was thinking that the most troublesome fur hire is beat, but since beat is SR, very likely it will go untouched.

Thus, left dyna & wiz to be on the list in the future if they continue to pose threat.

But, I think it could be too much if they put both dyna & wiz on semi. Not sure which card will hit the ban list though

FH is geyy Reply
who runs 3 dynas and wiz tho
Disrupted by dna surgery :v
This card represents the power of the spellbooks, but what would happen if I use cursed seal of the forbidden spell against this card? I'm afraid the opponent would surrender immediately
Can we banish hazy monsters?

Hazy monsters are not affected by card effects THAT TARGETS THEM.

Card effects that do not directly target them, still affect Hazy monsters ;)

Please read your hazy cards.

Hazy cards cant be targeted.

There are cards that work on them that do not target.

Widespread ruin.
Wall of disruption.
Mirror wall.
Spellbook of fate.

Maybe a few more.

Its good that not everything targets.

Otherwise cards like hazy (and similar cards) would be godlike if nothing could affect them at all except destroy by battle.

That would mean that you would insta lose if they boost their att with f.e. beast rising trap.
DOESN'T TARGET, how the TF does this not target???
So bujin turtle is automatically rendered useless.

Some cards can apply effects without the targetting mechanic.

You need to see target as the yugioh meaning of target.

There are many cards that apply effects without using a target mechanic.

Widespread ruin doesnt target.
Srh doesnt do it on the enemy monster but affects the enemy still.
Wod doesnt target.
Mirror wall doesnt.

There are likely more that i cant remember right now

Set 1 econ and 1 monster.

If he uses fate you can econtake his monster and make him use banish on his own monster.

You can also cyclone fate when they put it facedown or in your turn to force them to use it or by hey trunade or use gyoku.

You can give them too much targets to fate so they cant fate it all.
You can use spell negating cards etc.

There are many ways around it.

Just need to learn how to work around it.

About your econ tips, they can also banish your econ instead of their own monster.

Also I would like to add that they cant fate (and some other spells) if they dont have a spellcaster on the field.

So killing/facedown swap his monster can give them trouble and slow them down too.

No they cant banish econ in that situation.

Look at following example.

You have 1 monster and 1 econ.

He activates fate (the card he picks isnt chosen at this point).
Now you do econtake and have his monster.

Now he has to apply the fate effect and there is only his monster on your field that he has to use it on.

Thats a downside of how fate works.

If your deck doesnt have special summon options to swarm or none of the tools i mentioned, than your chances are low.
Many meta decks have those tools though.

Dont get me wrong btw. I have cursed as well when my first 2 draws didnt provide me the needed tools resulting in falling behind and feeling quite powerless.

On the other hand i have beaten them often too.
How can such a broken cancer card exist?
Kuro kenshin
This card is 100% balanced,there is few reason
1.its once per turn
2.its cant be copied by master cuz its quick-play spell
3.the third effect is kinda hard to pull sometimes

Stop. The entire deck makkles it simple to get SB in GY.
1) Return 1 set spell/trap card to the hand.

If opponent used this on my card, for exam econ. Can I chain this with the targeted card ie. the econ?
<< Anonymous
akubane Reply
yes you can chain it. to prevent that, the card needs to say that you cant(like gyokkou and xing xeng hu replica).

Keep in mind this card doesn't target. You'll need to decide whether to chain to it BEFORE they pick a card. (So if you had 2 face-downs and chain one, they'll just return the other, not just completely waste the Fate.) Matters more for the banish effect, but worth keeping in mind anyway.
How is the most aidsy card in history of DL not UR?
This card don,t target lol
