Featured Card 1 - Gem-Knight Ruby

Gem-Knight Ruby
Gem-Knight Ruby

I'm interested to see if Fusion Monsters can start to make a return to the game - there's certainly a few of them floating around in the more recent Duel Terminals. Here's one example, Gem-Knight Ruby. Gem looks like being a fun archetype, the translated (unofficially) text reads:

'Gem-Knight Garnet' + 1 'Gem-Knight' monster.

This card cannot be Special Summoned from the Extra Deck except by Fusion Summon with the above Fusion Material Monsters. During battle between this attacking card and a Defense Position monster whose DEF is lower than the ATK of this card, inflict the difference as Battle Damage to your opponent. Once per turn, you can Tribute 1 face-up "Gem" monster to have this card gain ATK equal to the Tributed monster's ATK until the End Phase.

Featured Card 2 - Gishki Shadow

Shadow Ritua

I find the whole Gishki archetype fascinating and I'm really looking forward to seeing it in action. Unofficially translated text reads:

If you Ritual Summon a WATER Ritual Monster, this 1 card can be used as the entire Tribute. You can discard this card to add 1 "Gishki" Ritual Spell Card from your Deck to your hand.
