As title, does rebuke dragons qualify as rebuke undead for prestige classes entry requirements?

The rebuke dragons description explicits that the variant works for the purpose to qualify for divine feats and can be used for those feats that consume a turn/rebuke charge to activate their ability like divine defiance, divine metamagic ecc plus I think the rebuke dragons variant still grant a "rebuke something" so it's not like the wiz scribe scroll variants that grants something completely different so it should be enough to qualify for those prestige classes that require a turn or rebuke unded to enter, but still it's not clarified anywhere or at lest i haven't found it.

Thanks

Hi welcome to MMX, and technically no.

Rebuke Dragons is not Turn/Rebuke Undead so it has to rely on it's special rules that create some overlap. But those special rules only allow you to qualify/active Divine Feats, and "for using other abilities that require you to expend a use of your turn or rebuke ability". Which kind of links back to the old perception of affirming the consequent but basically the tl;dr of that is PrCs check for your Turn Undead ability, not for the half-trait of being able to count as expend uses of an ability you don't actually have.
Would you die if you jumped from my perceived ego to your IQ? - Is 15secs of confirmation bias a goal post worth arguing for? - Ever asked a "victim" what they did to deserve it? - Are the words teen, SJW, & liberal synonyms? - "Only Sith deals in absolutes" contains a misspelled word.
