"Reduces the Magic Attack of all enemy Monsters."
Can be Cleansed
|Top 3 Rulesets||Bottom 3 Rulesets|
|Weak Magic - Magic attacks strike armor first - hamstring your opponent's magic attack monsters further with silence.||Lost Magic - Magic monsters may not be used rendering silence useless.|
|Broken Arrows - Ranged attack monsters can not be used, increasing the odds that your opponent will rely heavily upon magic attack monsters.||Melee Mayhem - Only melee attack monsters can be used rendering silence useless.|
|Return Fire - Ranged attack monsters take damage from landed ranged attacks. Reduce their magic attacks as well!||Up Close and Personal - Only melee attack monsters can be used - negating the need for Silence.|
|Top 3 Abilities||Bottom 3 Abilities|
|Headwinds - combine headwinds and silence to reduce your opponents ranged and magic attacks.||Blast - Although magic attacks are reduced by 1 with Silence, they can not reduce to 0. If your opponent plays a magic monster with the blast ability, your adjacent monsters will still take damage.|
|Phase - Magic attacks can miss monsters with phase. The silence and phase abilities are great counters for magic reliant teams.||Return Fire/Magic Reflect - Ensure that your ranged or magic attack monsters with weaken can take what they dish out! Keep in mind that Silence dies with your monster.|
|Blind - Increase the likelihood that your opponents melee and ranged attack monsters will miss their targets. Cover all of you bases by adding Silence to the mix.||Cleanse - If your opponent has a monster with cleanse in their lineup, be aware that Silence can be cleansed.|
- Silence stacks but can not reduce Magic attacks to 0
- Silence dies with the monster wielding it
