My friend's favorite deck is his Dark Magician. His Eternal Soul trap is the biggest thorn in my side (besides Dark Magical Circle and Navigation). So I bought a monster known as Trap Eater, which says:
Cannot be Normal Summoned/Set. Must first be special summoned by sending one face up trap card your opponent controls to the Graveyard.
Now one of his best monsters is Dark Magician the Dragon Knight. It prevents me from targeting or destroying his spell or trap cards. But with Trap Eater, it may not be a target effect or destroy to special summon it, but would Dark Magician the Dragon Knight's special ability still prevent me from summoning Trap Eater?
