Turns out Master Key Beetle won't protect that card from self-destructing, but it still stops the MSTs and such.
So Key Beetle doesn't protect Deck Lockdown, what happens with Vanities Emptiness? Does it's self-destruction effect count as a condition in which case Beetle can't protect it or is it a different situation altogether?

Vanities Emptiness's Destruction is an Effect that Starts a chain as seen in its rulings.
"Self-Destruction" effects are different between the CG's. OCG says that Abyss-sphere's destruction cannot be negated by Decree, TCG says otherwise. Wait for the card to be released in the TCG and played at a YCS to know the TCG Ruling.

That's the thing. Mostly != Always. Whether these are effects or "conditions" are not set in stone at least not in the TCG.
I know it was ruled like that in the last european YCS's. I just said mostly because I can't prove deviations.
You can actually read by Abyss-sphere text that it's a condition.
The card says "after this cards activation" not "after the activation of this cards effect".
Activation of the card is not a card effect and thus not negated by decree etc.
I hope they will get this right soon.
but well thats not the topic here
