  • Destroys all Spell and Trap cards on the Field when this card was destroyed by battle.
  • Strong ATK stats.


  • Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set.
  • Need to banish 1 EARTH monster from Graveyard as cost to Special Summon.
  • It’s effect also destroys your own Spell and Trap cards.


  • This monster does not provide additional value to the existing Magnet Warrior decks as they fare better with Valkyrion the Magna Warrior or Gaia Plate the Earth Giant as their boss monsters.
  • Another reason is that it cannot be Normal Summoned/Set which may be useless if you do not have any Rock-type monsters to banish.

Filling your Graveyard

Since Alpha, Beta and Gamma the Magnet Warriors are Rock-type Normal monsters, you can combo with Painful Decision to quickly fill out your graveyard and draw another one of the same name from your deck. Delta the Magnet Warrior can be used to send 1 level 4 or lower Magnet Warrior monster from your Deck to your Graveyard when it was Normal/Special Summoned. Beta the Electromagnet Warrior can use its Quick Effect to send itself to the Graveyard and Special Summon 1 level 4 or lower Magnet Warrior monster from your Deck. Needlebug Nest can quickly mill your deck by sending 5 cards from your top deck to the graveyard, which has a high chance of sending Rock-type monsters to the graveyard. If you are playing a 30 card deck as opposed to the normal ratio of 20 cards deck, you can use That Grass Looks Greener to directly mill up to 10 cards to your Graveyard, giving ample of Rock type monsters in your Graveyard for disposal.

Ancient Gear

You can use Gigantes in an Ancient Gear deck because they are all EARTH monsters. He can then be used as a beater or to clear backrow that could be dangerous outside of battle. He can also be used as tribute fodder to summon your big Ancient Gear monsters

Recurring monsters

Use EARTH monsters that search a card when they are destroyed and sent to the graveyard alongside Gigantes to maximize utility. Monsters like Bubonic Vermin, Assault Dog, and Hyena are able to Special summon more copies of themselves from the deck.

Destroy Own Spell/Traps

You can use Gigantes to destroy your own backrow and trigger other effects.

Rock-Type Support

These cards further supports Gigantes on the field. When your monster’s position changes, Attack the Moon! Effect will trigger, allowing you to destroy 1 Spell/Trap card on your opponent’s field. Magnet Force protects all your Rock-type monsters from monster effects during the turn it was activated.

Additional Support

You can return your banished Rock-type monsters to the field in face-down defense mode, by using Premature Return, or you can Special Summon banished Rock-type monster by using Release from Stone. This can be a recycling method to ensure your field presence.

Gigantes banish giant rex you are welcome
When will they release a 2nd and 3rd copy of beta the electromagnet warrior? that is the good question here.
Note, it IS rock type, but the banished monster has to be EARTH attribute. making it able to splash into decks other than rock. But it does fit best in rock

if heavy storm were a monster card
Tribute to the doomed + sacrifice any earth month to destroy opponent's monster, then special summon Gigantes by banishing the earth monster you sacrificed to destroy all his traps/spell cards on the field, then place your own trap/spell and go in for a direct attack. Very nice.

Actually, what you said was a 3 card combo. Hard to pull off with a 4-card starting hand.

sadly doent even work. the destroy effect is not during the summon, its when gigantes gets destroyed by battle.
It is a good card indeed, but not so OP as you represent it. Remember,
-Most decks can out this card without destruction by battle.
-If you are desperate to clear your opponent's backrow, you have to suicide it, meaning you are wasting your Battle Phase.
-In addition, you cannot set is as a surprise factor, so your opponent can take care of it.
-I see e-con as a common stop to this card.
-It can backfire destroying your own backrow.
-Some decks dont play that much backrow, like sylvans.

at this point idc what konami releases as long as its accesible to everyone by putting in effort. now with that being said this card is pretty boss. might be the best 1900 beater
This will be highly dangerous if not limited to one. Rocks can easily fill the grave with magnets.
Oh boy
Need to get banned asap.
