    Battle Fader vs Skill Drain

    Post  Nemessie on Sun May 20, 2012 2:25 am

    My opponent summoned Battle Fader at the midst of the Battle Phase and I chained Skill Drain. He said that the effect activates from the hand, so Skill Drain cannot negate it. However, Battle Fader Special Summons itself and THEN ends the battle phase, as the card text says. So does Skill Drain negate it?

    No, Skill Drain does NOT negate Battle Fader's summon, nor effect. Battle Fader's effect activates in the hand, and the special summoning and ending the battle phase are not 2 separate effects. They are 1 effect. So the "special summoning" part and the "ending the battle phase" part of that 1 effect activate in hand, thus Skill Drain cannot negate it.

    Topic solved and locked.
