Silent Burning

 

The name of Silent Magician’s attack being turned into its own card is the only highlight of this downright terrible spell. Silent Burning should never be activated. Whether it’s justification for running a new OTK or for hoping you draw better than your opponent, the fact that this card can potentially give the opponent six new cards is enough to make one sick. The fact that you have to use the draw effect only during the battle phase and that you can only activate when you have more cards than the opponent is the cherry on top of all the awfulness.

 

The second effect is possible to use intelligently, even if you don’t use the first effect. Foolish Burial Goods becomes a search for Silent Magician, but let’s get down to business. Is it really worth running multiple spell cards just for the sole function of searching for one monster? Is it worth the potential dead draws? The answer is almost always no. And the same is true here. Unless Silent Magician becomes a fully useable and playable archetype, Silent Burning should never be used in any serious deck. And even then, I doubt there could ever be room for it outside of an OTK, which is already deplorable.

 

Advanced: 1/5

Future Potential: 1/5

Silent Burning could have been a good QuickPlay Spell Card, but it's conditions for activation are too difficult and the effect benefits the opponent. So this can only be activated during the Battle Phase, so automatically, you can't use any benefits of this card during Main Phase 1 if activated during your turn. You also have to control a Silent Magician monster, but they don't all benefit from this effect. Finally, you have to have more cards in your hand than your opponent. All for the ability to draw until 6 cards are in your hand total. Your opponent will always draw more cards than you, and only certain monsters will gain Atk. Not good.
The second effect is nice and simple allowing you to search for a Silent Magician monster from the deck to the hand by banishing Silent Burning from the grave. There is no limit to how often nor is there a waiting time from when it hits the grave to do the search. In a pure Silence deck, it's a necessary card, but only for the second effect. 
 
Score: 2/5 Search effect is good. 
Art: 1/5 Nothing to do with Burning or Silence and too far away.

We end this week off with a card built to work with the Silent Magician monsters and those monsters only, and that is Silent Burning.
 
Silent Burning is a quick-play spell, the best kind of spell, that can only be used in the Battle Phase if you control a Silent Magician monster and have more cards in your hand than your opponent. Once you activate this and meet the conditions, both players draw until they have 6 in their hands. I get restrictions, but the Battle Phase part might not be necessary and having to only use this when your opponent has less cards in the hand kinda sucks, but oh well. This card's activation cannot be negated. It is always nice when you activate a card and you know quite well that it will go through. You can banish this card from the grave to search for a Silent Magician monster. This effect is what inspired me to mix Lightsworns with the Silent Magician and Silent Swordsman cards. Milling Silent Burning and Silent Sword is nice, as you can use them to search for Silent Magician and Silent Swordsman.
 
The restrictions on this card's activation to draw kinda sucks, but I guess they wanted to prevent this from being too broken. The search effect in the grave is nice and helps this card's score quite well.
 
Advanced Rating: 3/5
