The box set Visions of Ice included two new archetypes, most notably being Spellbooks. The decks main focus is controlling the board which is done by consistently being able to use Spellbook of Fate every turn to disrupt any play your opponent tries to make. Because of Spellbook of Secrets and Spellbook Magician of Prophecy the deck is very consistent as these cards give the player access to nearly their entire deck at their fingertips. Once Spellbooks are able to make a board, they can consistently keep their advantage and make it extremely difficult for their opponent to break it. Spellbooks also have great comeback potential as they can easily bounce back with the use of Spellbook of Life and Prophecy Destroyer to special summon big monsters back on the field. The deck has two main variations including a 20-Card build and a 30-Card build using That Grass Looks Greener. With these two variations there are tons of different ways to build this deck.
