OCG Rulings

  • This card's effect can activate if it is destroyed during the Damage Step.[1]
  • If this card is destroyed while it was Set and sent to the Graveyard, then its effect starts a Chain Link.[2]
  • The opponent selects one of the two effects when the effect resolves.[2]

Previously Official Rulings

  • This card is only activated if sent from the field to the Graveyard. There is no way to activate this card while it is Set on the field.
  • You cannot choose an effect you cannot fulfill, so if you have no cards in your hand, you cannot choose to discard for "Dark Coffin".

Mentions in Other Rulings

  • Ojamagic: Since a Spell Speed 1 effect cannot be chained to a Spell Speed 2 effect, and "Ojamagic" is a Normal Spell Card, if "Ojamagic" is sent to the Graveyard simultaneously with a Spell Speed 2 card that activates in the Graveyard, like..."Dark Coffin", then "Ojamagic" is the first chain link, and the Trap Cards will be the second and third chain links.
