A Normal Spell Card, known as a Normal Magic Card (Japanese: 通常魔法カード Tsūjō Mahō Kādo) in the OCG, is a Spell Speed 1 Spell Card, so it cannot chain to other effects, even those of other Normal Spell Cards, but can be chained to by Spell Speed 2 or Spell Speed 3 cards. The turn player may Set a Normal Spell Card and activate it on the same turn, a useful strategy when Setting Normal Spell Cards before using the effects of cards that discard from your hand (such as Card Destruction and Morphing Jar). Normal Spell Cards can only be activated during the turn player's Main Phase 1 and Main Phase 2, with the exception of "Curse of Fiend" which can only be activated during the Standby Phase. After the Normal Spell Card's effect resolves, it is sent to the Graveyard.
Normal Spell Cards have no icon in the OCG/TCG, but some video games use a blank circle .
