    Efectos con costo

    There are two key concepts in the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG concerning "Costs":

    1. Costs are paid before the activation of a card, not after.

    2. You never get a "refund" on a cost.

    Costs are paid before activation. So to activate "Seven Tools of the Bandit", or the effect of "Cannon Soldier", or play "Premature Burial", you pay the Life Points or Tribute the monster before you activate the card or use the effect. (In other words, you pay the cost then announce your intention to use the card.) This includes flipping the card, for a Trap, or playing it from your hand, for a Spell Card.

    If a card is negated (or, for a Continuous card, if it is destroyed in a chain), it makes no difference regarding the cost, because the cost has been paid. You do not receive a "refund" simply because your card was negated, or its effect was negated, or it was destroyed (in the case of a Continuous card).

    Also, cards like Dark World Dealings present no cost, because the part that says you must discard is after the effect of drawing a card from your deck. This is one way to determine weather a card requires a cost or not.

    Here are some specific examples:

    Example #1: Negation of "Seven Tools of the Bandit"

    * Step 1: Player A activates "Mirror Force".
    * Step 2: Player B pays 1000 Life Points, and activates "Seven Tools of the Bandit".
    * Step 3: Player A pays half his Life Points and activates "Solemn Judgment", negating "Seven Tools of the Bandit".

    * Step 3 resolves: "Solemn Judgment" negates and destroys "Seven Tools of the Bandit".
    * Step 2 doesn't resolve because the Trap Card was negated.There is no refund of Life Points. The Life Points were paid already. You don't get them back.
    * Step 1 resolves: "Mirror Force" resolves its effect.

    Example #2: Negation in a Chain of "Premature Burial"

    * Step 1: Player A pays 800 Life Points and activates "Premature Burial". Player A chooses the "Jinzo" in his Graveyard as the target of "Premature Burial".
    * Step 2: Player B discards 1 card from his hand and chains "Magic Jammer" to negate "Premature Burial".

    * Step 2 resolves: "Magic Jammer" negates "Premature Burial".
    * Step 1 does not resolve because "Premature Burial" was negated. No monster is Special Summoned. There is no refund of Life Points because they have already been paid.


    Cards like "Dark Core" and "Lightning Vortex" have a discard cost of 1 card from your hand.


    Cards like "Chaos Sorcerer" require you to remove 1 LIGHT and 1 DARK monster from play from your Graveyard.

    You cannot use a card like "Disappear" to remove one of those monsters from play before it's removed for the summoning, or a card to remove a card from your opponent's hand before he/she does, because you cannot beat a player to paying a cost.
