OCG Rulings

  • This effect cannot be activated in a chain to the activation of the effect of a Spell Card. It must be chained to the activation of a Spell Card.[1]
  • Changing "Big Shield Gardna" to face-up Defense Position and negating the activation of a Spell Card are considered to happen simultaneously.[1]

Previously Official Rulings

  • "Skill Drain" only negates the effects of monsters that are face-up on the field, so a face-down "Big Shield Gardna" may still negate a Spell Card that targets it while "Skill Drain" is active on the field. It will still be flipped to face-up Defense Position, and now its effect that changes its Battle Position when it is attacked will be negated.

Judge List Rulings

Out of Date

  • If "Prickle Fairy" attacks a face-down "Big Shield Gardna" both their effects will occur at the end of the Damage Step. "Prickle Fairy" will be Step 1 and "Big Shield Gardna" Step 2. So it will change to Attack Position, and then the effect of "Prickle Fairy" will change it back to Defense Position.[Notes 2]


Notes

  1. The latest errata of "Big Shield Gardna" makes it clear that its negation effect is a Quick Effect. This ruling could only be the case if it was a Continuous Effect.
  2. The latest errata of "Big Shield Gardna" makes it clear that its effect to change itself to Attack Position is a Continuous Effect. This ruling could only be the case if the effect went on a Chain.
