On Negating Activations

On Negating Summons (In General)

  • If your Normal Summon was negated by "Solemn Judgment" or "Forced Back", then it is still considered that you Normal Summoned during this turn, so you cannot activate the effect of "Red-Eyes Wyvern" during the End Phase.[4]

  • You cannot negate the Special Summon of a monster after it is Special Summoned with a Spell or Trap Card, but you can use "Solemn Judgment" to negate the activation of the Spell or Trap Card.
  • If halving your Life Points results in a fraction, your Life Points are rounded up.
  • "Solemn Judgment" does not target the card it will destroy.

Mentions in Other Rulings

  • "Solemn Judgment" can negate a monster summoning.
    You must activate it before the monster is successfully summoned.
    If the monster summoning is negated and the monster is destroyed, the monster is not treated as if it was sent to the Graveyard from the Field.
    Also, you can only activate an effect that negates the Special Summoning of a monster if that monster was Special Summoned from the hand or Deck in the order [sic] specified on the monster's card text. If it was Special Summoned due to a Spell, Trap or another monster's effect, then it cannot activate.[29]
