White Elephant's Gift:
 
This card in a Little City Deck, combined with Hero Blast & Alius can be really good. My question is can we activate this and then chain Gemini Spark to draw 3 cards & destroy 1? :suspect:
If yes:

Hm, nice card, but you don't want to waste alius for this. Gemini spark is a +/-0, or a +1 if used at the right time, while this is a +/-0 that can't disrupt your opponent's combos.

However this can be good in other decks with normal monsters!

And also, no you can't do that.

Sending the normal monster to the grave is a cost, so the monster is sent to the grave the moment the card activates, therefore you can't send it again as a cost for Gemini Spark since he's already in the grave.

Yes, very good and all but let's discuss the name. Can anyone please explain why this card is called "White Elephant's Gift"?

Gigaplant? But once you summon him, you need him on the field! Also, gigavise decks rarely use other geminise apart from gigaplant, am I right? :/

Maybe, just maybe, it's a white elephant's bone. I have heard that white elephants are considered to bring luck, and their horns (ivory) are considered lucky as well.

This card has Japanese Hiragana characters in the middle which make the "Henohenomoheji" face with the "ji" being the bone it is written on.

Also, the Japanese name is "Stranger's Compensation"...what a weird card in terms of name/image...

Oh, my bad, since gigaplant will be treated as an eff monster you can't use it with elephant's gift

And yeah konami picks gay names many times, so why being surprised O.o
