Cerulean effect doesn't target, so Skill Prisoner cannot negate that
The ultimate answer to the 🔥 that is Snowman Destroyer.
You can combine it with Marella and Magical Hats.
chain to a targeting effect?
Hazy laughs at this

it protect but not negate since i like negate than protect so your opponent waste their card.
Going straight into my turbo UAGG deck.

Koa'ki Ice and Maximus both target according to OCG rules, even though the word is not specifically stated on their card.

Also stops Vampire Vamp which targets.
Took me a few times reading the effect until I understand that basically, it negates monster effect that targets the card you targeted with this card.

One of the few examples where PSCT hinders more than helping.

I have never seen anything like that card before. It’s such a weird card with no level.
