Yu-Gi-Oh/Kayest, A Feint Plan, Zerozerock


I'm having trouble figuring out the difference b/w cards that can't be selected as attack targets, like Guardian Kayest, and cards that prevent opponent from attacking certain monsters, like a feint plan and zerozerock.

I know Kayest allows the opponent to attack directly if she's the only one out on my field, but does a feint plan and zerozerock allow the opponent to attack directly if i only have (face-down monsters for a feint plan or 0ATK monsters for zerozerock)?

I believe the difference here is between

"Monsters on your opponent's side of the field cannot select this card as an attack target."
"Your opponent cannot select this card as an attack target."

In the first case, your opponent can attack directly.
In the second, they cannot attack at all.

So it would depend on text:

"Your opponent cannot target face-up Attack Position monsters with 0 ATK for attacks."

Seems to fit the second statement, so I assume they would be unable to attack.

A Feint Plan
"A player cannot attack face-down monsters during this turn."

Fits neither really, mostly because it doesn't have Problem-Solving Card Text.

UDE's old rules state this though:

"If "A Feint Plan" is activated and you control only face-down monsters, your opponent cannot attack any of your monsters and they cannot attack your Life Points directly either. "

Which means it must also be the second statement.
So it appears that in most cases your opponent will be unable to attack

Hope that helps.

I'm able to answer any and all questions related to the English Yu-Gi-Oh! game itself. This includes, but isn't limited to:

Deck Fixes: Either making suggestions and improvements on a deck you've already built, or building a deck from scratch for you. In either case, please give an idea of the kind of deck you're building, the level of play you're planning to use it in (small tournaments, regionals etc), and the kind of budget you're on.
Please format decks in a way that's easy to read. Each card name should be on its own line, with a number before it indicating how many you're playing. Please split decks into Monsters, Spells and Traps.

NOTE: A level of reasonability is assumed with this. I cannot build you a nationals winning deck based on monsters whose name starts with the Letter 'A' on a budget of 4($6)... Nor will I generally respond well to Questions touting "No Xyz, Synchro... etc" or disallowing cards from certain parts of the show. I haven't seen the show in a number of years and find these conditions to usually be poorly-defined.

Rulings: On any card interacting with any other card(s). Tell me the scenario, and I'll tell you what happens.

I won't be answering questions on whether a trade is fair or not, or on how much X-card is worth, as both these kinds of question can be answered by using Ebay's completed listings page.
