Situation as follows:
It's my turn.
I have a face-up "Red Gadget" on my field, the opponent controls an "Evilswarm Heliotrope" and "Daigusto Emeral". During my Main Phase 1, I activate "Creature Swap", selecting my "Red Gadget". He claims to select his "Evilswarm Heliotrope", then proceeds to activate "Infestation Pandemic".
His view: He gets my "Red Gadget", but "Evilswarm Heliotrope" stays untouched and on his field, as he's unaffected by Spells/Traps when "Creature Swap" resolves. Sounds reasonable.
My view: "Creature Swap" just plain cannot resolve when one of the targets is no longer "valid" and everything stays as it is. It would be better if it was this way, at least for me, so I just claimed that I read it was like that
We get a judge, and he himself didn't seem to be 100% sure.
Judges view: "Creature Swap" targets players, not monsters, thus "Infestation Pandemic" doesn't protect his Heliotrope against anything. Which means in the end: I get his Heliotrope, he gets my Gadget. End of story.
I'd just like to know if the judge was actually right, and if so, what is the reasoning behind this?
Thanks a bunch
