Review: Well Books of Spell isn't as strong as I thought it would be. Maybe more supports might pop up for this archtype? Or maybe I'm just not using it the right way! However the above decklist is just a trial run after 3 days of testing here and there in Dueling Network's Unrated category.
[Batel of the Books of Spell] serves as an exclusive [Elemental Hero Stratos] for this archtype as it is able to search for any Books of Spell magic card to be added to your hand. If you would like to further thin down your deck in future turns. You can always first search out for [The Grimoir Books of Spell] then using it to search for [Batel of the Books of Spell]. Then rinse and repeat for the next few turns.
[Magical Priestess, Junon] is the main ace card for this deck! Being a unrestricted [Dark Armed Dragon] which can be normal summoned, revived from the graveyard, special summoned from your hand by her own effect, or even being able to be special summoned from the deck by [Magical Summoner, Tempel]'s effect. Although having 2500 attack power these days may not be such a big threat, but the ability to destroy any card just by removing a Books of Spell in your grave can prove to be lethal.
[Magical Warrior, Pholus] actually proved to not be so useful when I build the deck up to its very first version. However with more and more testing, he proves to be a powerful beater and the ability to shuffle back any Books of Spell magic card to the deck can be good as [The Torah Books of Spell] is one good magic card that serves as a [Forbidden Lance] for this archtype can be recycled and searched out multiple times.
[The Necronomicon Books of Spell] is the [Premature Burial] for any spellcasters monster in your grave. Can be searched out by Batel, Grimoir and maybe an old friend [Hidden Armory/Arms Hole]?
[Magical Priestess, Junon] is a good target for this.
No [Card Car D]! [Wonder Wand] is the way! Well that said, I actually rather take a direct attack to my lifepoints rather than see my [Batel of the Books of Spell] getting pummelled by my opponent's monsters. So I thought of [Wonder Wand] as a good card to give me a +1 after I search out a Books of Spells via Batel's effect, then releasing Batel to draw 2 more new cards. Not to mention if I draw upon my traps or other cards, I can still activate or set them. Sometimes alot better than [Card Car D]! But we'll see how it goes, [Card Car D] still requires very little effort to draw 2 cards!
Well short post, I'll try to update again soon! In the meantime, why not try out the Books of Spell? =D
