How can Solemn Judgment negate Gorz the Emissary of Darkness but not Chaos Sorcerer in Yu-Gi-Oh?
Solemn Judgment can negate summons that don't use the chain, by waiting until the monster is placed on the field, then negating the summon before it counts as being successful. When a summon occurs on the resolution of an activated effect, the summon is automatically successful when the effect resolves - but Solemn Judgment can chain to that activation and prevent the summon by stopping the effect resolution.
So, if you Normal Summon, Synchro Summon, or perform a special summon that does not use the chain, such as Chaos Sorcerer, you can negate the summon as per the first bit above.
If you special summon on resolution of an activated effect, such as Monster Reborn or Call of the Haunted, Solemn Judgment can chain to these activations and negate them. No resolution means no summon.
But, note that Solemn Judgment can only chain to the activation of Spell or Trap cards. If the special summon occurs on the resolution of an activated monster effect, Solemn Judgment can't stop it. It can't chain to it, and as above, the summon is successful when the effect resolves.
So that is why Solemn Judgment can't do anything against the triggered effect of Gorz the Emissary of Darkness, but is able to stop special summons that aren't by resolution, such as Chaos Sorcerer.
Can Solemn Judgment negate the summoning of and destroy the non-inherent Special Summon of Gorz the Emissary of Darkness in Yu-Gi-Oh?
No, it can't be used against a summon which occurs on resolution of an activated monster effect. It can only stop inherent special summons such as Synchro Summons or Chaos Sorcerer, and it can stop special summons from the resolution of spells or traps, by negating the activation of the spell or trap.
No, you cannot use Solemn Judgment to chain on Special Summons that are from activated effects (Mother Grizzly, Battle Fader, etc.). You can chain Solemn Judgment to cards that are Special Summoned through its own effect, while it does not have to be activated to do so (Cyber Dragon, Dark Armed Dragon, etc.).
No, it can't be used against Battle Fader at all in a battle situation. One confusing part of Yu-Gi-Oh is the distinction between summons that do not use the chain ('inherent' special summons is one term people use) and ones that summon themselves on resolution of their own activated effect. Examples of Inherent ones would be Synchro Summons, XYZ Summons and Chaos Sorcerer. Just like a Normal Summon, these do not use the chain. Solemn…
Any Counter Trap card, such as Counter Counter or Seven Tools of the Bandit, can chain to/ counter another Counter Trap card; including Solemn Judgment. Some people might be confused due to Counter Counter being printed without the "Counter" symbol in some countries. This error was fixed and printed correctly in other countries and in later versions.
When D.D. Scout Plane is Special Summoned on the field through it's effect can Solemn Judgment negate the Special Summoning?
No. Monsters can special summon themselves in two ways, there are monsters that special summon themselves without using the chain, such as Cyber Dragon, and Dark Armed Dragon, but also Synchro Summons. Then there are those that are special summoned by the resolution of an activated effect. To negate the former, you wait until the new monster is placed on the field. Summon negation cards like Solemn Judgment, can then be used on it. To…
Activated Normal or Quickplay Spells, and Normal or Counter Traps, remain on the field until after the whole chain has resolved, unless another effect specifically sends them during the chain. So if I activated Secret Barrel, my opponent could chain cards like Jar of Greed to it, but even though that resolves first, the card remains on the field until Secret Barrel finishes resolving, meaning there is no reduction in damage. In another scenario, if…
How do you negate Battle Fader or Gorz Emissary of Darkness' non-inherent Special Summon in Yu-Gi-Oh?
You use an effect that can negate the activation of a monster's effect. Divine Wrath is one. Solemn Warning is another - it can negate both inherent special summons, or effects that include special summons. Royal Oppression can stop Battle Fader, and it can stop Gorz if he's summoned outside the damage step by his 'direct damage' summon. But Royal Oppression can't be used in the damage step so it can't stop him when he's…
