waspid slicer ability doesn't always work

a waspid slicer ability is “When your waspid attack, they afflict the target with poison and bleed for 3 turns”
The spell gem Epiphany is “Your creatures’ races are changed to match that of the caster for the rest of the battle.”

If your waspid slicer uses the spell gem Epiphany, it says during battle that all your monsters races have changed to waspid, but if those creatures attack they dont get the afflict poison and bleed.
