In Yu-Gi-Oh!, there is a monster effect card called "Malice Ascendant", which its effect says:
During your opponent's Standby Phase, send 1 card from the top of their Deck to the Graveyard for each "Malice Ascendant" in your Graveyard.
I don't understand how this card activate its effect - the following are some examples I think this card works, but, I really not sure:
- Do (at least one copy) "Malice Ascendant" must be face-up in the field for activate its effect - while haveing another two copies in the graveyard? - (for send 2 cards from my opponent's deck to their GY) or
- If I have 3 copies of "Malice Ascendant" in my graveyard, during the opponent's standby phase, "Malice Ascendant"'s copies will activate and send 3 cards from my opponent's deck to their GY?
