Thank you for making a bug report!

From the scenario you described Rainbow Life is working as intended. Rainbow life helps you by preventing Life point damage taken from the turn and changing it to life gain.

Venus and other cards that cause you to use life points for activation requirements, or cost, causes you to “pay life points”. Paying life points isn’t categorized as taking damage. You can see this in relation to a card like Guiding Ariadne. This card, when placed in the pendulum scale prevents you from having to pay life points for the activation of counter trap cards, such as Solemn Judgment and Solemn Strike.

If you have any other questions regarding this, please feel free to let us know so that we can further explain it, or ask for further information on the Duelist Unite Discord server in the #rulings channel so that we can further discuss this.

Once again, I want to thank you for making a bug report! If you find anything else you believe to be a bug, please feel free to make a report and we will look into that scenario for you.

Thank you for helping make Omega the best we can!

Ah ok I see.
Sorry I didn´t knew that “cost” is not handled as damage but thank you very much for the kind explanation.
If I´ll find a real bug I´ll try it again here :smiley:
