Previously Official Rulings


You can
activate "Judgment of Anubis" when there are no monsters on your opponent's side of the field.

When you activate "Judgment of Anubis", you destroy your opponent's monster after the activation and the effect of the Spell Card is negated. This means that the monster-destroying effect of "Judgment of Anubis" does not target.

You can activate "Judgment of Anubis" and select a Spell Card that destroys only a Spell Card (like "De-Spell") or only a Trap Card (like "Remove Trap") or could destroy both (like "Mystical Space Typhoon") or many (like "Heavy Storm").

You can activate "Judgment of Anubis" and select a Spell Card that negates the activation of a card and destroys it, like "My Body as a Shield" or "Bait Doll".

You cannot activate "Barrel Behind the Door" against "Judgment of Anubis" because when "Judgment of Anubis" is activated, it has not been confirmed that the damage-inflicting effect will happen.

Curse of Royal: You can use "Curse of Royal" against cards like"Judgment of Anubis"

Des Wombat: If your only "Des Wombat" is destroyed by "Judgment of Anubis"it is no longer on the field so it will not protect you against the damage from these card effects.

Gorz the Emissary of Darkness: If you activate "Mystical Space Typhoon" and your opponent chains "Judgment of Anubis", if they destroy the only monster you control with its effect and inflict damage to your Life Points, you can start a new Chain by activating the effect of "Gorz the Emissary of Darkness" if you don't control any cards.
