Overview

Silent Swordsman is a powerful card that can easily fit in any deck that mostly runs Warrior-Type monsters like Masked HERO, Noble Knight and Amazoness. The ability to, once per turn, negate a Spell Card, the floating effect and Silent Sword Slash make Silent Swordsman a quite difficult monster to deal with.

How to Use

Silent Swordsman

You can Special Summon Silent Swordsman by Tributing a face-up Warrior-Type monster on your side of the field. Each Standby Phase Silent Swordsman will gain 500 ATK, so, while its original ATK is pretty low, thanks to this effect and Silent Swords Slash, this monster will quickly become more of a threat.

In addition to the ability to, once per turn, negate the activation of a Spell Card, Silent Swordsman, similarly to its Spellcaster counterpart, can Special Summon from your Deck or hand another “Silent Swordsman” monster when it’s destroyed by battle or by an opponent’s card effect. The “Silent Swordsman” monster you more than likely want to Special Summon via this effect is Silent Swordsman LV7, a 2800 ATK Warrior monster that negates the effects of all Spell Cards on the field.

Since Silence Sword Slash’s effect can’t be negated, you will still be able to target Silent Swordsman LV7 with it and, since its activation can’t be negated either, an opponent’s Silent Magician, Wiz, Sage Fur Hire or Silent Swordsman won’t be able to prevent you from activating it.

Silent Sword Slash

This is the “Silent Swordsman” version of Silent Burning, it’s much easier to activate compared to its counterpart and it has an arguably more useful effect. This Quick-Play Spell permanently increases the ATK and DEF of a “Silent Swordsman” monster you control by 1500 and, until the end of the turn, it makes that monster immune to your opponent’s card effects.

Ideally, you want to chain this card to an opponent’s card or effect that targets your Silent Swordsman or Silent Swordsman LV7, but you can also use it offensively during the Damage Step to get over an opponent’s monster or to just finish them off.

Silent Sword Slash is currently Semi-Limited, which means that, if you want to run the Amazoness Version of the deck, you will likely have to sacrifice it for Amazoness Princess.

Justice Bringer

Justice Bringer is a Warrior-type monster that has the ability to, once per turn, negate the effect of a Special Summoned monster your opponent controls. You can use Justice Bringer to Special Summon Silent Swordsman or keep it on the field to negate the effect of a Koa'ki Meiru Maximus, Cosmo Brain or even Vampire Familiar/Vampire Retainer. 1700 ATK means that Destiny HERO - Drilldark, Destiny HERO - Celestial and Destiny HERO - Decider can’t get over this monster naturally and, without Vampire Kingdom, Gozuki and Samurai Skull would be forced to trade with it.

Crystal Raigeki

The Transcendent Crystal Version of the deck can take advantage of this Trap Card to get rid of problematic monsters such as Koa'ki Meiru Urnight, Vampire Grace and Cosmo Brain before they are able to activate their effects.

The Amazoness Engine

When Summoned, Amazoness Princess will add Amazoness Onslaught from your Deck to your hand. This Continuous Trap will allow you to banish any monster that battles with one of your “Amazoness” monsters, giving you a relatively easy way to deal with high ATK/DEF monsters or cards like Yubel - Terror Incarnate and Silent Magician that can't be destroyed by battle and/or float into another monster when they are destroyed/leave the field.

Both Amazoness Princess and Amazoness Swords Woman can be Tributed for Silent Swordsman since they are both Warrior-Type monsters and you could even consider running Amazoness Willpower to Special Summon them from the Graveyard after you Tributed them.

Endless Trap Help allows you to recover your single copy of Amazoness Onslaught from the Graveyard, it replenishes your resources while also preventing you from decking out before your opponent.

This Skill gives you access to Crystal Raigeki and it allows to thin your Deck. You send Silent Sword Slash to the Graveyard via Transcendent Crystals and then banish it to add Silent Swordsman from your Deck to your hand or even run Rare Value to draw a few cards.

Weaknesses

  • Silent Swordsman can only be Summoned by Tributing a Warrior-Type monster: this deck can generate a few weak or unplayable hands because of this requirement. Silent Swordsman LV7 can also cause a few problems, so you should never run more than two.
  • Silent Swordsman needs a few turns to gain enough ATK to compete with cards like Koa'ki Meiru Maximus and Masked HERO Anki and even Silent Swordsman LV7 will struggle against them without the help of your Spell/Trap Cards.
  • Even with Silent Sword Slash, a Silent Swordsman will reach only 3000 ATK on the opponent's turn after it has been Summoned.
  • D.D. Assailant is great in the Masked HERO matchup, but just Setting it on Turn 1, even with some backrow, is not exactly safe against Koa'ki Meiru and Vampire decks.
  • Although it's true that DNA Surgery is not that popular, it should be mentioned that it can prevent you from Summoning Silent Swordsman.

With the Transcendent Crystals build, one can more easily get away with running two Silent Swordsmen instead of the standard three and therefore bricking less. Using a slash at the beginning of the duel if you do not start with Swordsman is not the end of the world. The deck thins itself out and you can stall until you draw the second one. Absolute Crusader, Shield Warrior, and Decider are all great tech for those who don’t have three assailants. After today’s release of the Ancient Gear deck, Assailants will not be quite as good as before.

My apologies. I have only had to unlock a character through newer gate missions that got added on after events only once, so I am not exactly sure how it happens with Jesse. I just know that he is available at the gate. There is a photo on the Jesse Anderson page on this site that explains the missions. Try looking at that and searching absolutely everything on your GX stage menu. Hope it helps.

There's a single Silent Swordsman LV7, the chance of starting with it is around 20-25% not 50%.

Definitely but unfortunately I’m the dub they got rid of the part where kalin beats Lawton
no what you have to do with me is killing the comment below
The only one missing is the Exodia one.
Its atk and def are halved, meaning it is against monsters.
