  • "Malefic Stardust Dragon" cannot be Special Summoned, except by the method written on the card.[1]
  • Suppose you control "Malefic Stardust Dragon" and a Field Spell Card. If your opponent activates an effect like that of "Demise, King of Armageddon", "Final Destiny" or "Judgment Dragon" which would destroy "Malefic Stardust Dragon" and the Field Spell Card simultaneously, then the Field Spell Card is not destroyed since it cannot be destroyed by card effects.[2]
  • Prior to the introduction of Master Rules 3, there could had only been 1 Field Spell Card active on the field at a time. Thus, if your opponent would had activated a new Field Spell Card while you already had a Field Spell Card active and "Malefic Stardust Dragon" on the field, then your Field Spell Card would had been destroyed, as it was not destroyed by a card effect.[3]
