Versus Specific Cards

  • Chosen of Zefra: While the effect of "Necrovalley" is applying, during the resolution of the effect "● 10" of "Chosen of Zefra", if your opponent has 1 or more cards in their Graveyard, since the effect would affect cards in the Graveyard, the effect is negated by "Necrovalley". Also, during the resolution of the effect "● 10" of "Chosen of Zefra", if your opponent has no cards in their Graveyard, since the effect would not affect cards in the Graveyard, the effect is applied normally. (All cards on the opponent's hand and field are shuffled into the Deck.)[4]
  • Crystron Entry: The effect "Special Summon 2 "Crystron" Tuners (1 from your hand and 1 from your Graveyard)." is treated as an effect that affects cards in the Graveyard. Even if the effect of "Necrovalley" is applying, "Crystron Entry" can be activated, but its effect is negated by "Necrovalley". (No monsters are Special Summoned from your hand or Graveyard.)[5]
  • Cyber Angel Vrash: Shuffling 1 Ritual Monster from your Graveyard into the Deck is a cost to activate the effect "negate the activation, and if you do, destroy that card.". Since it is not an effect that affects cards in the Graveyard, the effect is not negated by "Necrovalley", and it is resolved normally.[7]
  • Darklord: Even if the effect of "Necrovalley" is applying, the effect of "Darklord Ixchel" etc. can be activated. However, since the effect of "Darklord Ixchel" etc. is treated as an effect that affects cards in the Graveyard, it is negated by "Necrovalley". (The resolution of "apply that target's effect" and the resolution of "then shuffle that target into the Deck" are not applied.)[8]
  • Debunk: If "Debunk" is activated in a Chain to the activation of the effect of a "Gravekeeper's Nobleman" in the Graveyard, "Debunk" is treated as an effect that banishes cards from the Graveyard. While the effect of "Necrovalley" is applying, since cards cannot be banished from your opponent's Graveyard, "Debunk" cannot be activated.[9]
  • Drill Warrior: Even if the effect of "Necrovalley" is applying, the effect that banishes "Drill Warrior" and the effect that Special Summons "Drill Warrior" can be activated. Since the effect "During your next Standby Phase: Special Summon this card banished by this effect, then add 1 monster from your Graveyard to your hand." is treated as an effect that affects cards in the Graveyard, the effect is negated by "Necrovalley". ("Drill Warrior" remains banished, and is not Special Summoned.) However, if during the resolution of that effect, you have no monsters in your Graveyard, since is not treated as an effect that affects cards in the Graveyard, only the resolution of "Special Summon this card banished by this effect" is applied.[10]
  • Fairy Tail - Snow: While the effect of "Necrovalley" is applying, cards cannot be banished from the Graveyard. The effect of "Fairy Tail - Snow" cannot be activated from the Graveyard unless you can banish 7 cards from your hand and/or field as a cost. (Even if 1 of the 7 banished cards is "Necrovalley", you cannot banish cards from the Graveyard when the effect is activated from the Graveyard.) Since the effect of "Fairy Tail - Snow" is an effect that affects cards in the Graveyard, if you do not banish "Necrovalley" as a cost to activate its effect, the effect of "Fairy Tail - Snow" is negated.[11]
  • Gemini monster: The effect "This card is treated as a Normal Monster while face-up on the field or in the Graveyard." of "Ancient Gear Knight" is not treated as an effect that affects cards in the Graveyard. Therefore, even if the effect of "Necrovalley" is applying, "Ancient Gear Knight" is treated as a Normal Monster while it is in the Graveyard.[13]
  • Igknight: Even if the effect of "Necrovalley" is applying, the Pendulum Effect of "Igknight Squire" etc. can be activated. During the resolution, add 1 FIRE Warrior-Type monster from your Deck to your hand. (If you only have FIRE Warrior-Type monsters in your Graveyard, the effect of "Igknight Squire" etc. is not applied.)[17]
  • Infernoid Onuncu: "Must be Special Summoned (from your hand or Graveyard) by banishing 3 "Infernoid" monsters from your hand or Graveyard while the total Levels and Ranks of all Effect Monsters you control are 8 or lower, and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways." is not treated as an effect. Since it is a procedure to Special Summon a Special Summon Monster, even if the effect of "Necrovalley" is applying, "Infernoid Onuncu" can be Special Summoned from the hand or Graveyard. However, while the effect of "Necrovalley" is applying, since cards cannot be banished from the Graveyard, "Infernoid Onuncu" cannot be Special Summoned unless you banish 3 "Infernoid" monsters from your hand.[20]
  • Kozmojo: Even if the effect of "Necrovalley" is applying, "Kozmojo" can be activated. The resolution of "destroy it" is applied normally, but during the resolution of "banish 1 card your opponent controls or in their Graveyard.", you cannot banish a card from your opponent's Graveyard, and you must banish 1 card your opponent controls.[21]
  • Madolche Chateau: Since the effect "When this card is activated: Shuffle all "Madolche" monsters in your Graveyard into the Deck." of "Madolche Chateau" is treated as an effect that affects cards in the Graveyard, the effect is negated by "Necrovalley", but "Madolche Chateau" remains in the Field Zone and the effect "All "Madolche" monsters on the field gain 500 ATK and DEF. " is applied normally. Also, since the effect "Shuffle this card into your Deck." of "Madolche Mewfeuille" is treated as an effect that affects cards in the Graveyard, that effect is negated by "Necrovalley", and the effect "If a monster(s) in your Graveyard would be returned to the Deck by the effect of a "Madolche" monster, you can add it to your hand instead." of "Madolche Chateau" cannot be applied.[23]
  • Marshmacaron: Even if the effect of "Necrovalley" is applying, the effect of "Marshmacaron" can be activated when it is destroyed by battle or card effect and sent to the Graveyard. During the resolution, if you Special Summon copies of "Marshmacaron" from your hand and/or Deck, the effect is applied normally. If you only have copies of "Marshmacaron" in your Graveyard, the effect of "Marshmacaron" is not applied, and no copies of "Marshmacaron" are Special Summoned.[25]
  • Miracle Contact: Even if the effect of "Necrovalley" is applying, "Miracle Contact" can be activated. During the resolution, shuffle the Fusion Materials from your hand or Monster Zone into the Deck and Special Summon 1 Fusion Monster from your Extra Deck. If you cannot resolve this card's effect unless you include Fusion Materials in your Graveyard, then the effect of "Miracle Contact" is not applied.[26]
  • Nekroz of Sophia: While the effect of "Kycoo the Ghost Destroyer" (or "Necrovalley") is applying, cards cannot be banished from the Graveyard. If either player has 1 or more cards in their Graveyard, the effect of "Nekroz of Sophia" is treated as an effect that banishes cards from the Graveyard, and it cannot be activated. If neither player has cards in their Graveyard, the effect of "Nekroz of Sophia" can be activated. (All other cards on the field are banished normally.)[27]
  • Shadow-Imprisoning Mirror: While the effect of "Necrovalley" is applying, since the effect of "Shadow-Imprisoning Mirror" is not treated as an effect that affects cards in the Graveyard, the effect is applied normally. (It is not negated by "Necrovalley".) The effect of "Sangan" is not an effect that affects cards in the Graveyard, but it is the effect of a DARK monster that is activated from the Graveyard. The effect of "Black Dragon's Chick" is not an effect that affects cards in the Graveyard, but it is the effect of a DARK monster that is activated from the field. Therefore, in both cases, the effects are negated by "Shadow-Imprisoning Mirror".[35]
  • Sinister Serpent: Even if the effect of "Necrovalley" is applying, the effect of "Sinister Serpent" can be activated from the Graveyard. However, since it is treated as an effect that affects cards in the Graveyard, it is negated by "Necrovalley". (It is not returned to your hand.) Also, if the effect of "Sinister Serpent" is activated, and during your opponent's next End Phase the effect of "Necrovalley" is applying, since cards cannot be banished from the Graveyard, the effect "also banish 1 "Sinister Serpent" from your Graveyard during your opponent's next End Phase" is not applied.[36]
  • Stardust Re-Spark: Even if the effect of "Necrovalley" is applying, "Stardust Re-Spark" can be activated. The resolution of "Negate the attack, and if you do, draw 1 card" is applied normally, and you can Special Summon 1 "Stardust" monster from your Extra Deck. (You cannot Special Summon 1 "Stardust" monster from your Graveyard.)[37]
  • Tragoedia: The effect "this card's Level becomes the same as that target's, until the end of this turn." targets a monster in the Graveyard, but it is not treated as an effect that affects cards in the Graveyard. Therefore, even if the effect of "Necrovalley" is applying, the effect of "Tragoedia" is applied normally and its Level is changed. (If this effect is activated by targeting "Glow-Up Bulb", the Level of Tragoedia becomes 1.)[42]
  • Trick Box: Even if the effect of "Necrovalley" is applying, "Trick Box" can be activated. However, since it is an effect that affects cards in the Graveyard, it is negated by "Necrovalley". (The resolution of "take control of it until the End Phase" and the resolution of "Special Summon 1 "Performage" monster from your Graveyard to your opponent's field." are not applied.)[43]
  • Wightprincess: The effect "This card's name becomes "Skull Servant" while it is in the Graveyard." is not treated as an effect that affects cards in the Graveyard. Therefore, even if the effect of "Necrovalley" is applying, the name of "Wightprincess" is treated as "Skull Servant" while it is in the Graveyard.[46]
  • Xyz Encore: Even if the effect of "Necrovalley" is applying, "Xyz Encore" can be activated. The resolution of "detach all Xyz Materials from it, and if you do, return it to the Extra Deck" is applied normally, but even if there is a Monster Card in the Graveyard among those detached Xyz Materials, the resolution of "Special Summon as many of those monsters as possible from the Graveyard to your opponent's side of the field in face-up Defense Position." cannot be applied.[48]

Notes

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 1.5 1.6 1.7 The latest print of "Necrovalley" has Problem-Solving Card Text which states that it even negates the effects of cards that move themselves from the Graveyard to other locations, so this ruling is invalid.
  2. 2.0 2.1 The latest print of "Necrovalley" has Problem-Solving Card Text which states that it negates the effects of cards that move cards in the Graveyard to other locations, regardless of whether or not they target.
  3. 3.0 3.1 3.2 3.3 Despite this effect not targeting, this ruling is correct that it is negated by "Necrovalley".
  4. 4.0 4.1 The latest print of "Necrovalley" has Problem-Solving Card Text which states that it prevents cards in the Graveyard from being banished, so effects that banish cards from the Graveyard are not negated, but rather cannot banish any cards from the Graveyard.
  5. It is impossible to negate costs, so instead "Necrovalley" simply prevents them from being paid.
  6. 6.0 6.1 6.2 The latest print of "Necrovalley" has Problem-Solving Card Text which states that it negates the effects of cards that move cards in the Graveyard to other locations, so the effect can be activated but will be negated.
