Send ((おく)Okuru) refers to the act of moving a card to the Graveyard, except moving cards from Banished Zone to the Graveyard or swapping the Deck with the Graveyard.

Sending cards to the Graveyard

Cards can be sent to the Graveyard in many ways:

Ways of sending

Tribute, destroy, discard and detach are different ways of sending cards to Graveyard.

Cards sent from the hand to the Graveyard are not necessarily discarded. For example, the effect of "The Fabled Cerburrel" activates when it is discarded to the Graveyard, so it will activate if discarded by "Card Destruction" but not when sent to the Graveyard by "Hand Destruction".

Likewise, cards sent from the field to the Graveyard are not necessarily destroyed. For example, the effect of "Dark End Dragon" sends monsters to the Graveyard, so it cannot be negated by "Stardust Dragon", "My Body as a Shield" or "Destruction Jammer". However, doing so will activate the effects of "Sangan" and "Dandylion", as they activate when sent to the Graveyard, not when destroyed.

Moving cards to the Graveyard without sending

Returning a banished card to the Graveyard is not considered to be "sending a card to the Graveyard". Thus, even if a card like "Macro Cosmos" is active, "Miracle Dig" and "Fortune's Future" can be used to return cards to the Graveyard; the returned cards will not be banished.

Swapping the Main Deck with the Graveyard for the effect of "Exchange of the Spirit" is not considered sending to the Graveyard.
