This week, for the rest of the week, we finish our Return of the Duelist countdown.  Spellbook of Secrets is an incredibly simple, but necessary Magic card for the Decktype.  It is a very handy 1-for-1, adding speed to an all ready quick and powerful Deck.  Spellbook of Secrets lets you add one Spellbook Magic card, other than itself, to your Hand.  It does have the setback of only being able to use one of itself a turn, but that adds balance.  If you're playing a Spellbook Deck, you're using at least two, and you might be playing all three you're allowed.  Not much else to say here folks.

Today’s card is the searcher for the Spellbooks. Spellbook of Secrets can not only get you any Spellbook that you need for the current situation, but also get you a Spellbook in the graveyard. Spellbook of Secrets is the catalyst for a consistent Spellbook deck and needs to be played in three’s.
 
We currently have three really good Spellbooks that we can search out depending on our situation. If we need to protect our spellcaster from spells or traps, we can search for Spellbook of Wisdom. If we have a good monster to special summon from the graveyard, we can search for Spellbook of Life. If we need an extra 1000 attack points, search for Spellbook of Power. With the release of the next set, Abyss Rising, we can search for Spellbook of Institute – La Maison for draw power, or Goethe Spellbook to do some even more amazing things.
 
The second thing Spellbook of Secrets does for us is to give us at least two played spells for use with monsters that use this to add spell counters to themselves. Magical Exemplar, Royal Magical Library, Magical Marionette, and Skilled Dark Magician are all good cards to use with Spellbooks. Magical Exemplar is a great card to use in Spellbook/Prophecy decks as it can easily summon Temperance of Prophecy and if you get Spellbook of Life you can special summon another monster and then another with Temperance of Prophecy. That is what we call loading the field with monsters to wreak havoc on your opponent.
 
If Spellbook/Prophecy decks become popular with the release of Abyss Rising, Spellbook of Secrets will play a major role. For now, my ratings will reflect the unknown.

I cannot begin to start about how important Spellbook of Secrets is to the Prophecy/Spellcaster archtype. Much like E-Hero- Stratos, it nets you whatever spellbook you need from the deck to your hand, except another copy of Spellbook of Secrets. And to give it a bit of balance, you can only activate Spellbook of Secrets once per turn. Just make sure the card you pick fits the situation you need it for. Long story short, you are using a few Spellbook spell cards, you need a copy or two of this.

Hello and welcome to our final week of Return of the Duelist’s Top 11 cards! Today we have a new card fresh from the newest set.

Spellbook of Secrets

Normal Spell

“Add 1 "Spellbook" card from your Deck to your hand, except "Spellbook of Secrets". You can only activate 1 "Spellbook of Secrets" per turn.”

Let me start by saying that this is a Reinforcement of the Army for Spellbook cards. It is a very crafty engine that allows you deck thin and get a much needed Spellbook card from you deck. Many players consider running cards like this more often than not because they can essentially be ANOTHER copy of that card. In that mind set, it allows you to see the needed card more often.

Although this card has some restrictions to it, it is a new and interesting archetype nonetheless.

Pros: Searches any “Spellbook” card in your deck.

Cons: Cannot search for another copy of itself and can only be activated once per turn.

Advanced: 3/5
Traditional: 2/5
