Q&A Rulings

A: You can chain the effect of "Ghost Belle & Haunted Mansion" to the effect of "Trickstar Band Sweet Guitar" that activates during the End Phase. (You can chain the effect even if your opponent does not have a "Trickstar" monster in their Graveyard.) When the effect of "Ghost Belle & Haunted Mansion" is applied, the activation of "Trickstar Band Sweet Guitar"'s effect is negated, so its ATK will remain increased and no monster is added to the hand.[2]
A: If the effect of "Skill Drain" is applied after "Trickstar Band Sweet Guitar" gains ATK by its own effect, the effect stops applying and it no longer gains ATK. Even so, if "Trickstar Band Sweet Guitar" attacked, its effect will activate during the End Phase. Even if the effect of "Skill Drain" is no longer applying at that point, you cannot apply the part of the effect that changes the ATK increase to 0, so you cannot add a "Trickstar" monster from your Graveyard to your hand.[3]
