This card sitting here, abandoned. While being a very precise no cost counter to econ, otc soul exchange meta, and possibly tribute to the doomed. Because people don't want to ruin their deck "balance" or combination of UR and SR because this is a cheap card.
Because those cards don't specifically target ONE TARGET, they target more than one in the effect.
Riroku targets one of your monsters and one of your opponent's monsters.
The trap specifically states, that it negates a Spell that targets, ONE TARGET.
It should work on OTC because that card's effect targets only one card. tributing is the cost not the effect of the card

This may be my new favorite card. Dawn of destiny put spells over the top. 1 question if I skip the first chance to use it on otc can I use it after he destroys his own guy then targets my guy. I don't want to lose to test it.
The Monster you tribute for activating a card effect is the "cost/requirement/perquisite" to use the effect, it is not the effect of the card.
Such as when you negate it OtC the tributed monster doesn't get refunded.
I dont understand, why nobody use this card? This card counters most common spell in the meta like econ, order to charge, soul exchange, even riryoku. Yet im not seeing this being played in pvp at all.
No, it will not counter Ritual Spells because A. It says 1 monster on the field, and it "targets" (not really) the Monster in the hand the whole time, also it doesn't target monsters, it works sort of like Order to Charge. When the effect resolves, tribute the monsters and summon the Monster.
Very useful card againist Enemy Controller and Order to Charge.
