OCG Rulings

Mentions in Other Rulings

The Tricky: "The Tricky" is not a Special Summon monster. Despite being a monster that can be Normal Summoned, it is a monster that can also be Special Summoned by performing the procedure of discarding 1 card from the hand. In other words, Special Summoning "The Tricky" from the hand by discarding 1 card from the hand does not start a Chain, and is not an effect that activates. Therefore, even if "Goblin of Greed: While "Goblin of Greed" is face-up, applying its effect that prevents effects from being activated by discarding cards, can "The Tricky" be Special Summoned by the method described in its text?

Previously Official Rulings

Goblin of Greed" prevents discarding as a cost, but not as part of an effect. So "Goblin of Greed" will stop "Kuriboh", but not "Mirage of Nightmare" or "Graceful Charity".

If your opponent activates an effect and discards as a cost, and you chain "Call of the Haunted" to Special Summon "Goblin of Greed", he doesn't stop the effect because the cost was already paid.

Mentions in Other Rulings

Wicked-Breaking Flamberge - Baou:" Sending 1 card to the Graveyard is a cost. This is not "discarding"and you can pay the cost even if "Goblin of Greed" is in play.
