So... with the new update that card has changed.
Here's a part of it's effect:
"Once per turn, during the End Phase: Send this card to the Graveyard, and if you do, Special Summon 1 "The Winged Dragon of Ra - Sphere Mode" from your hand, Deck, or Graveyard, ignoring its Summoning conditions."
With the new update I'm forced to activate this effect at the end phase when my "Winged Dragon of Ra - Sphere Mode" is banished or when I have used a card with the effect that I cannot special summon anymore during my turn. (So no special summon of sphere mode but forced to send to graveyard)
Before the update, I could have kept "Winged Dragon of Ra - Immortal Phoenix" if my sphere mode is banished or with a card that prevents me to special summon.
I have tried with 2 metalfoes pendulum cards:
Pendulum Effect : Once per turn: You can target 1 other face-up card you control; destroy it, and if you do, Set 1 "Metalfoes" Spell/Trap Card directly from your Deck.
I could not activate the effect if I didn't have at least one Metalfoes spell/trap in the deck.
So I can't understand why Immortal Phoenix's effect is activated when the condition after "and if you do" is not met.
