Card Rules: Rulings powered by The Netrep API. The Battle Position of a monster targeted by this card can still be changed by card effects, such as 'Book of Moon', 'Stop Defense', etc. This card may select a face-down monster as a target. This prevents the monster from being Flip Summoned, but it will still be flipped face-up if it is the target of an attack. If the targeted monster is Tributed, changed into an Equip Spell Card by the effect of 'Relinquished', returned to the owner's hand, or otherwise removed from the field without being destroyed, 'Spellbinding Circle' remains on the field meaninglessly. You can chain 'Spellbinding Circle' to the activation of a Flip Effect when a monster is Flip Summoned or flipped face-up, but it will not negate the activation or resolution of the Flip Effect. You can activate 'Change of Heart' and take control of a monster targeted by 'Spellbinding Circle' but you cannot attack with it or change its Battle Position. If a monster attacks and you activate 'Spellbinding Circle', the monster's attack stops. [Re: Dark Spirit of the Silent] If a monster that has already attacked, or a monster targeted with the effect of 'Spellbinding Circle' or 'Nightmare Wheel' is targeted with the effect of 'Dark Spirit of the Silent' that monster still attacks. [Re: Gladiator Beast Alexander] If a 'Gladiator Beast' monster attacks and its attack is stopped with a card effect ('Gravity Bind', 'Spellbinding Circle', 'Enemy Controller', etc.) or is negated during the Battle Step, the 'Gladiator Beast' monster cannot activate its effect at the end of the Battle Phase. [Re: Little-Winguard] Effects like 'Spellbinding Circle' do not prevent you from using 'Little-Winguard''s effect. [Re: Total Defense Shogun] You cannot chain to 'Total Defense Shogun''s effect that changes him to Defense Position when Normal Summoned or Flip Summoned. So you cannot chain 'Spellbinding Circle', etc.
