Soul Drain v. Yang Zing synchro

Post by Lord dragon » Thu Sep 18, 2014 9:42 am

Do the effects of Yang Zing non-tuners activate when synchro summoning? More specifically do they activate on field or grave?

Does Soul Drain prevent Synchros from getting bonuses?

Actually I suppose I should ask if that effect actually activates at all.

I had the same question.

http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Bixi,_Wate ... _Yang_Zing

I think you mean this Yang Zing and in that case no. It does not say 'When this cards is sent to the graveyard by synchro summoning' it says if this card was used to synchro summon a monster. So pretty sure its a field effect and not a grave effect.

But still not 100% sure myself. But cards like Doppler and Synchro Fusionist say 'If this card is sent to the Graveyard as a Synchro Material Monster" so the fact it doesn't say sent to the graveyard on Yang Zing leads me to think it happens while on the field.

The ruling covered your questions:
"A Synchro Monster Summoned by using this card as a Synchro Material Monster is unaffected by the effects of Trap Cards." effect is not a Continuous, Ignition, Trigger or Quick Effect. (Applying this effect does not start a Chain Link.)[1]

I've always understood it as a field effect like arkain said, You could compare Yang Zings with Torapart as they both have similar effects as well^

Looks like I was right. Sad, guess soul drain isn't quite as amazing against Yang Zing as I had hoped

And yet it still stops Yangs from summoning more Zings. So useful regardless
