A Method to the Madness discard protection

A Method To The Madness
Mid-match Action
During your turn when this card is in your Backlash, you may put it into your Ring.
Your first non-hybrid maneuver played each turn that is 6D or less can only be reversed from Arsenal or by D: 0 reversals from hand.  When you discard cards to play a card with 'blindside' in the title from Ringside, discard 1 less card.
F: 0     D: 0     Unique     Permanent

V1

If I have this in my ring and I play Blindside Beal Toss (which allows the opponent to choose a non unique card from my backlash and discard it), would I discard one less backlash card due to the protection of A Method to the Madness?

Sorry to bump this but I'm still none the wiser as to whether Method to the Madness protects from backlash discarding. I have a feeling it doesn't but just wanted clarification if possible.

I would've answered this earlier if you had provided text.

Blindside Beal Toss

Grapple

You may play this card from your Ringside pile.
When played from your Ringside pile, your opponent looks at your Backlash deck, chooses 1 non-unique card, and you discard the chosen card.

AMttM will protect you from discarding a Backlash card.

Can confirm that A Method to the Madness affects any play effect from a card with "blindside" in the title that uses the word "discard." Blindside Beal Toss will still let the opponent look at your Backlash, but that's all.
