Number Archive is banishing Crooked Cook and Superdreadnought Super Rail cannon Dora at end phase despite them being unaffected by other card effects.

Number 78: Number Archive
2 Level 1 monsters
Once per turn, during either player's turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; your opponent randomly chooses 1 card in your Extra Deck, and if it is a "Number" monster that has a number between "1" and "99" in its name, Special Summon it by using this face-up card you control as the Xyz Material, but banish that monster during the End Phase, also you cannot Special Summon for the rest of this turn. (This is treated as an Xyz Summon. Xyz Materials attached to this card also become Xyz Materials on the Summoned monster.)

Number 59: Crooked Cook
2 Level 4 monsters
While you control no other cards on the field, this card is unaffected by other cards' effects. Once per turn, during either player's turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card; destroy as many other cards you control as possible, then this card gains 300 ATK until the end of this turn for each monster destroyed by this effect and sent to the Graveyard.

Number 81: Superdreadnought Rail Cannon Super Dora
2 Level 10 monsters
Once per turn, during either player's turn: You can detach 1 Xyz Material from this card, then target 1 face-up monster on the field; that target is unaffected by card effects, except for its own effects, until the end of this turn.


In the case of Crooked Cook it was positively the only card in my control when it was banished at end phase.

In the case of Dora i was not given a chance to activate her ability in response to the banish at end phase effect, also tried detaching prior to end phase which "should" have also worked, but understanding timing properly I "should" have to activate her effect at end phase for the protection.

All these cards are relatively new so bugs are understandable. I have several judge friends that agree that these effects should be able to negate the banish effect of Number Archive.

they're banished because the effect is applied before they're summoned, it cannot be negated
