Yu-Gi-Oh! Card Review: Spellbook of Secrets

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

Spellcasters reached a new level of power in Return of The Duelist with the introduction of Spellbooks. This archetype of Spell cards enhanced every Spellcaster deck. Spellcasters became much faster and had great field protection against most threats. Spellbook of Secrets is one of the key cards in the  archetype. It gives you instant access to all your Spellbooks! Spellbook of Secrets has only been printed once as an Ultra Rare and Ultimate Rare in Return of The Duelist.

Spellbook of Secrets searches your deck for any Spellbook card from your deck, and adds it to your hand. It is a perfect card for searching for cards to counter your opponent’s strategy. Its skill is basically a second draw for your turn. You have access to your complete library of Spellbooks. I normally search my deck for a Spellbook card to start the deck’s engine or to destroy my opponent’s cards.
