Banish is removing the card
Destroy is destroying the card.
Destroy =/= banish
For example if you have sakuretsu armor, when you use it, it destroyes the card.
Than there is dimensional prison which just removes the attacking monster, since it isnt considered destroy stuff like strdust doesnt do anything to it.
Bottomless trap holes destroys the monster, if it destroys the monster you also remove it too
It's not,you're right.
Destroying sends it to the graveyard and banishing removes it from play(your banished cards are set aside,off of your dueling mat or play area,but where they are still accessible.So you can get them back with certain card effects,such as Miracle Dig or D.D.R.)
Destroy means to send it to the graveyard. Banish means to remove it from the game. Very different things. Not the same at all.
