Tourney discovery

So i went for a tourney yesterday and they followed the asia format. at first i thought that it starts at 2pm just that they had earlier registration, but my friend called me earlier telling me that it starts at 10. i had no choice but to drag myelf to the venue since i had already registered.


and this is what happened.LOL.


I didnt bring my sidedeck despite the fact that i looked at my other deckbox (which i put my sidedeck cards in it) but just somehow didnt manage to recall that my sidedeck was in it. and i left the house.


My extra deck includes absolute zero, lucky their stuff reminded me. another LOL, since i didnt really went to check my deck after forming it and totally forget about the asia format thingy.


played with my first opponent with a lanista.another LOL.


conclusion, i am really so sorry to have cause so much trouble to my first opponent, a judge and a head judge due to my carelessness. my heartfelt apology.


================================


anyway back to the main point, discovered at the tourney that splendid venus plus royal decree totally rocks your opponent off their boat. you can play all magic and traps you want while rendering your opponent's magic, trap totally useless.


and then the debate came in when this card that turns the tide of the game came forth:








Effect: You can only activate this card when your opponent declares an attack. Your opponent selects 1 random card from your hand. If it is a Monster Card, Special Summon it on your side of the field. If not, send it to the Graveyard.


player A activates this card and player B response with royal oppression. now the judge was called at this point and asked whether royal oppression can negate this card or not? the debate was at 2 sides:


1. royal oppression cannot negate this card as the special summon was uncertain.


2. royal oppression can negate this card because it can negate anything that "has a possible hint to special summon, regardless whether or not it is certain" ( i am putting this phrase loosely so dont catch me on this,haha)


i was curious as well, and decided to look this up. however neither wikia eng or jap wiki has an answer to this, so i asked the famous Ness00( the ruling god IMO) from pojo forum about this question and this was the answer that he gave me:


Royal Oppression's text is a little ambiguous. Its effect should actually tell you that it can negate the effect of a Card whose effect includes the possibility of Special Summoning something when it resolves (aside from negating Inherent Special Summons). This possibility may be subject to chance as well, much like Reasoning or Monster Gate.

Quote:
Your opponent can chain "Royal Oppression's" effect to negate "Monster Gate's" effect.
Quote:
You can activate the effect of "Royal Oppression" as a chain to "Monster Gate". No cards will be picked up, and no monster will be Special Summoned (The opponent still must have Tributed a monster as a cost).
Oppression is different to effects like Stardust Dragon that require that the effect they aim to negate is GRANTED to destroy something. Oppression only cares about a Special Summon being included in the effect that it aims to negate.

A Hero Emerges attempts a Special Summon. It may fail, sure, but since it includes a Special Summon as part of its effect, Oppression can negate its effect.


=============================

yup, so this is what he said and it pretty much made sense to me. so what do you think? whats your stand on this?just a general discussion. hehe

That's actually some pretty cool info :3 definitely a good thing to know when facing an E-Hero deck, or any deck that uses A Hero Emerges
