Destroying is way of sending cards to the Graveyard.
Cards can be destroyed by card effects, which explicitly use the word "destroy". When a monster is beaten in battle, it is considered destroyed as well.
When a card is destroyed, it is sent to the Graveyard, unless there is a Card on the Field that says otherwise.
