During your Main Phase, you can Tribute Summon 1 Spellcaster-Type monster in face-up Attack Position, in addition to your Normal Summon/Set. (You can only gain this effect once per turn.) If this card is sent from the field to the Graveyard: You can add 1 Spellcaster-Type Normal Monster from your Deck or Graveyard to your hand. You can only use this effect of "Legion the Fiend Jester" once per turn.
Also, did you tribute Legion to Special Summon Silent Magician then try to Tribute Summon afterwards? Maybe Legion's effect only applies if it was still on the field, as in, it needs to be the monster tributed for the Tribute Summon, there cannot be anything in between.
You can spend money on Silent Magician, which can special summon itself from a single Spellcaster monster on your field the same turn it was played. Otherwise invest some gems in the Tyrant box you cheapskate.
In DM this card was a Normal monster though. It only gets its effects when it is printed for OCG/TCG.
Hi! Could anyone explain how this card fits in a Graavekeepers deck? The way I see it it only works for summoning GK Chief, and the recovery effect is wasted because GK doesnt use normal monsters... Someone enlighten me plz :D
It was mostly used to summon GK Chief in 1 turn to (re)gain board presence. It looked something like this: Turn 1 GK Recruiter, protect it with the backrow:
Turn 2 Play Legion the Fiend Jester, tribute Recruiter for GK Chief, search for Oracle, special summon Recruiter from grave, attack.
You just flooded the field, searched your boss monster and still have the same amount of cards.
Okay this happened to me today, I had one fiend jester on the field then I normal summoned my second jester and then tribute summon dark magician. Everything good so far but when both of my jesters went to the graveyard I was only able to active the second effect of one of my jester. Can someone explain me what I did wrong? or what happened here?
Read the activation restriction, it's once per turn per effect, not per card copy.
I know DL is for casual players, but man, take a time to read the rulebook and the basic rulings of Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG, it doesn't hurt.
