During the Damage Step, in either player's turn, when a face-up EARTH Normal Monster you control attacks or is attacked: You can send this card from your hand to the Graveyard; that monster gains 1000 ATK and DEF until the End Phase.

  • Can increase your EARTH Normal monster’s ATK and DEF by 1000.
  • Can be used during either player’s turn.


  • Can only be used during the Damage Step.


  • This is a very good hand trap that potentially deals massive damage to your unsuspecting opponents.


These are the Gem-Knight EARTH attribute Normal monsters that can benefit from Gem-Merchant’s effect. Gem-Knight Iolite only benefits from the effect if it was still a Normal monster.




ActionsSends itself from hand to Graveyard for cost
Stat changesYour monsters gain ATK / Your monsters gain DEF


So, Gem-Knight Zirconia is a fusion monster, but also a normal monster correct? The attribute is earth, and has no effect. So it fits the Gem-Merchant requirement right? If so, I cannot seem to activate it. Could someone explain what I have missed.

Thank you in advance.

it is a fusion. Having no effect doesnt make it a normal monster

Fusion monster with no effect is both a Fusion monster and a Non-Effect monster, not Normal monster.

All the Normal monsters are also Non-Effect monsters, but not all Non-Effect monsters are Normal monsters.

This distinction is why the spell card White Elephant's Gift has that text.

Another example, Scrap Archfiend is a Synchro monster that's also a Non-Effect monster.
Can someone tell me why this card only works sometimes? So sometimes my monster would just ram himself head first into a monster with 900 more attack

It only works for normal monsters.

I don't know if it's fake or not, but I have this card in holofoil and it does looks awesome.
It is sort of like blademaster.
With spikeshield with chain this card may actually be decent
A really nice hand trap
