This is one of my favorite Gravekeeper cards, but it
has some drawbacks. Basically, you get to offer a
monster with Gravekeeper in it's name to do 1700
direct damage to your opponent. However, you can't
offer any Gravekeeper's Cannon Holder's for the
effect. And you can't use Tribute Summons, either
The good points to this card is that if you run a
Gravekeeper deck, you're going to be seeing a lot of
Gravekeeper's to offer. I like to offer the Spy and
the Guard after their Flip Effects are activated,
Especially if you're not going to use them again. 700
damage isn't a lot, especially if you run out of
things to offer. However, that extra bit of damage is
The downsides are that it can't offer itself. I loved
being able to offer Cannon Soldier when I ran out of
things to shoot. That isn't a real serious drawback,
however it doesn't help. You can't offer other GKCH,
which really doesn't help if that's all you have. It's
stats aren't good at all, so it probably won't live
In a Gravekeeper deck, this ends up being one useful
card, especially if you use Necrovalley to boost its
stats. It's basically the Cannon Soldier of the
Tournament Rating: 4/5
Effect: Offer 1 card that includes "Gravekeeperís" in
its card name on your side of the field as a tribute
to inflict 700 points of Direct Damage to your
opponentís Life Points. However, you cannot offer this
card or another "Gravekeeperís Cannonholder" with this
cardís effect. Monsters used for a Tribute Summon or
that are offered as Tributes due to other cardsí
effects are excluded.
Well, this is basically a Gravekeeper form of Cannon
Soldier, but the 3 main differences are:
1- You can ONLY tribute Gravekeeper's.
2- You can't tribute himself for the effect.
3- It does 700 damage where as Cannon Soldier only
Speed, Speed, Speed... Thatís what Gravekeeper's like.
Within a well put together GK-Deck you will have many
other GKs to tribute and with GK-Spy and Rite Of
Spirit to get ammo quicker you can attack with all
your forces then tribute them off for the finishing
The best monster to use for tribute (IMO) would be
GK-Curse, since when it summon (for any reason) it
does an automatic 500 damage, so when you summon it,
then tribute it, then bring it back (RoS) and tribute
it off again that does 2400 damage right there, and if
you get a clear attack through with both of them alone
it's 4600, and with Necrovalley it's 5600.
So depending on how many Rite Of Spirits, or if you
have GK-Chief out when Necrovalley is active or if
Necrovalley isn't active you can use the 3x main
recursion cards to load up some extra fire power, then
if you really want to be evil you can throw in a
couple Last Wills to double the speed of the opponents
demise, but it's no doubt that a GK-CannonHolder can
make a big difference in how fast the added burn helps
in a GraveKeeperís Deck when built well.
With Necrovalley out he becomes a Lv-4 1900 attacker,
so attacking with all your forces then tributing them
all will cause some quick damage, but it obviously
isn't a good idea to just fire off you only offense
and defense if that last tribute isn't going to win
you the game right then and there, So using GK-CannonHolder
should be planned out before jumping in and firing
ArtWork: 3.0 - I would assume his "cannon" shoots a
blast of energy with the Gravekeeper's souls cause
their bodies aren't go to fit in that thing.

Martaveli In this.
This card, Seriously is not worth playing at all. You
may as well play a cannon soldier. Not being able to
sacrifice monsters of the same name as itself holds
you back from delivering that last bit of damage need
to finish off your opponent. I would say this is the
second least useful Gravekeeper.
Lets just play that bad boy Cannon Soldier instead of
