OCG Rulings

  • The effect "Each player must pay 500 Life Points per card to Normal Summon, Special Summon, Set or activate cards from his/her respective hand" of "Chain Energy" makes it such that unless the opponent pays 500 Life Points, they cannot Normal or Special Summon monsters from the hand or activate or Set cards from the hand. The 500 Life Points paid by the opponent is not a cost to activate a card effect. Therefore, if the opponent pays 500 Life Points to activate "Harpie's Feather Duster", "Cash Back" cannot be activated in Chain to "Harpie's Feather Duster".[3]
  • While "Chain Energy" is applying, when a card is activated or Set from the hand, 500 Life Points must be paid for each card. If "Emergency Provisions" is activated from the hand by sending "Chain Energy" to the Graveyard for its cost, first 500 Life Points is paid because "Emergency Provisions" is being activated from the hand, then "Chain Energy" is sent to the Graveyard for the cost of "Emergency Provisions". (In other words, after paying 500 Life Points, you gain 1000 Life Points when "Emergency Provisions" resolves.)[5]

Previously Official Rulings

  • "Chain Energy" applies only to cards played or Set from your hand, not cards that are activated when already Set on the field, or to cards placed onto the field by effects like "Cyber Jar"'s Flip Effect.
