Gem-Knight Zirconia.  As stated before, Gem Knights may have received more support than anybody in Hidden Arsenal 7.  This is a powerful enough Fusion Monster, at Level 8, Earth attribute (not bad), Rock (also not bad, but not good, either) with 2900 attack and 2500 defense.  Normally, you wouldn't play a high attack, high level, non effect Monster, even if it's a Fusion.  Though Black Skull Dragon (or Masked Beast even to prove a point) saw play once upon a time in a very different Yugioh World.  Gem Knights may actually put one in the extra Deck though.  They have many a arsenal of Gem Fusions to choose from, ala Elemental Heroes, and most of them have moderate to sub par attack and/or defense, and bizarre, less than helpful, irrelevant effects.  Zirconia is effect less but has an incredible attack, which is important to the Gem theme.

Wow....a fusion monster. Gem-Knight Zirconia is a big ole beastick, nothing more, nothing less. An EARTH/Rock type, needing an Gem-Knight monster and a Rock-type monster are needed to fuse together. Polymerization, Super Polymerization, and Gem Knight Fusion can get that done. Or you can use The Earth-Hex Sealed Fusion, as you can use it as the Rock monster needed and it doubles as Polymerization as well. There's not much to say about Zirconia as it has no real effect, other than its impressive stats of 2900/2500 for ATK and DEF. So it can get over almost every monster and defend against a lot. Zirconia is pretty much the muscleman of the Gem-Knight family, nothing really wrong with that.

Traditional: 2
Advanced: 2.5

Today we are looking at: Gem-Knight Zirconia

He doesn’t have an effect, and he is a fusion monster. That’s cool right? Being level 8 automatically stops the instant fusion shenanigans though. You pretty much needs to run a dedicated Gem Knight deck if you ever want to get him out. They aren’t really Meta right now, but it is a really fun deck to build if you ever want to try something strange.

Overall I can’t really say I love him, but in Gem knights you normally use him.

Advanced: 2/5 (Only in Gem Knight extra)

Traditional: 1/5

Welcome to another review!! Today we are reviewing a new Gem-Knight fusion monster from the Hidden Arsenal 7 set.

Gem-Knight Zirconia
Level 8
Attribute: Earth
Types: Rock/ Fusion
1 "Gem-Knight" monster + 1 Rock-Type monster
ATK/ 2900 DEF/ 2500

So at first glance this card looks really bad. It is a fusion monster with no effect but has nice attack and defense stats. Even though this card looks bad it can actually come in handy in a Gem-Knight deck. It isn’t an effect monster so it can’t be targeted with Fiendish Chain and it can also be special summoned with Daigusto Emeral. This monster is also one of the easiest Gem-Knight fusion monsters to summon because it can be created using a Gem-Knight and Rock-Type monster. Both of these fusion materials are pretty common in Gem-Knight decks because a lot of the Gem-Knights are also rock monsters. This monster may look pretty bad to most people but in a Gem-Knight deck this card can actually be pretty useful. It’s a nice beater that isn’t too hard to summon.

Advanced: 2.5/5
-Definitely a nice option in Gem-Knight decks. It would be nice if this monster had an effect but it still is pretty decent.

Traditional: 1/5
-I don’t think Gem-knights would be too great here and this monster probably wouldn’t be able to do much in this format.

Art: 4/5
