OCG Rulings

  • If you equip multiple "Metalmorph" then each copy will increase the monster's ATK by 300 points. Furthermore, when the monster attacks, the effects that increases its ATK by half of the opponent monster's ATK overlaps. For example if 2 copies of "Metalmorph" are equipped on the same monster then that monster gains 600 ATK, and when it attacks an opponent's monster, it gains ATK equal to 2 X half the ATK of the opponent's monster.[1]
  • You can equip a Trap Card to an opponent's monster, but only if the Trap Card does not specify "your monster". So, you can equip "Metalmorph" to an opponent's monster because it does not specify otherwise, but you cannot equip "Blast with Chain" nor "Kunai with Chain" to an opponent's monster because these cards specify "your monster".[2]

  • If you equip a monster with 2 or more copies of "Metalmorph", the effect of each copy of "Metalmorph" is applied. For example, if you equip 2 "Metalmorph" onto a monster it will gain 600 ATK and DEF and when the equipped monster attacks your opponent's monster its ATK will be increased further by the effect of each "Metalmorph".
  • If "Reverse Trap" is activated, the increase of 300 ATK and DEF is changed into a decrease of 300 ATK and DEF. When your monster that is equipped with "Metalmorph" attacks your opponent's monster, the additional gained ATK, that is based on the ATK of the monster being attacked, is NOT changed to a decrease.
