I have a question.
Battle: Space Marines vs Necrons.
SMs card on the planet X: Deathwing Guard (Elite)
Necrons cards on the planet X: Lychguard Sentinel and Immortal Vanguard
SM Attack Phase.
Deathwing Guard attack Immortal Vanguard, but Lychguard Sentinels text sound "Your opponent must declare a ready unit named “Lychguard Sentinel” as a defender, if able."
So Deathwing Guard must attack Lychguard Sentinels.
The Ability of Lychguard Sentinels is activated autoaticaly against Deathwing Guard.
Then SM Player plays Backlash (" When your opponent triggers an ability that targets an Elite unit you control, cancel its effects. Then, if that ability was triggered from an army unit, destroy it.").
Deathwing Guard can destroy Lychguard Sentinels using Backlash card or not?

No, the Lychguard's ability does not include the text "target" so it isn't targeting the Deathwing Guard. It just has a static effect that effects all of the enemy units at the planet while it is not exhausted.
