Synchro, polymerization, ritual summon and such are all considered special summon right?
<< Anonymous(slslsl)

Main Special Summons: Synchro, Fusion & Ritual.
Magic/Trap: Certain Magic/Trap effects enable you to Special Summon (eg. Limit Reverse, Powerful Rebirth)
Monsters: Certain monsters have effects that states that they can only be Special Summoned, like Blue-Eyes Shining Dragon or Yubel - Terror Incarnate. Plus, certain monsters have effects that allow the player to Special Summon

Anything other than a Normal or Tribute summon is a Special summon.

*other than Normal and Flip Summon.

Tribute Summon is a Normal Summon.

I am thinking that although you stop your opponent deliberately banishing (like do X to get Y or "you can")it would not prevent game state changes triggered by the opponent's actions. Am I right in this?
<< Anonymous

...Uh, what?

It straight prevents the opponent banishing anything, in any way, for any reason. For example, it'll prevent Soul Release, Skull Lair, Gigantes, Quillbolt Hedgehog's self-banish (it can still be summoned), etc. Not sure what you're confused about.

No, I think you are right. I was wondering about general board changes that auto-banished but were triggered by what he did, not ones controlled by the opponent. Either way, it looks like a fantastic card. (Game state changes are something someone tried to explain to me at a paper Yugioh tournament about 20 years ago and I was similarly mystified at the time.)

Not a bad card in Blue-eyes deck.
For example, you discard this one to graveyard to summon cosmo brain, or discard a blue-eyes monster to summon it against dinosaurs, then you use silver's cry

Add Survival’s End to the list of things this card counters

add more U.A banishing effect,batteryman,
Weak vs vampire since vampire can looping with their searcher and paleozoic trap monster sent to the graveyard instead banished so they can unlimited to use their effect.

If I'm not mistaken, it won't prompt for activation. Same for kuriboh.
