Default Playing cards "on someone" vs "on combat"

Last week playing Steampunk, a player used a card that said nobody else could play cards on the combat. I proceeded to play a curse on said player as I viewed the curse as being played on the person and not on the combat as it wasn't a one-shot or monster enhancer. Another player declared that this wasn't legal because it was "with the intention of altering the combat." This week that same player defined playing a curse as "on the player" to which I brought up his previous statement and being inconsistent. He adamantly holds to the belief that the situations are different because of the "intent" of my curse in the previous week.

I hold that a curse is "on a player" regardless of the intent because it is not a card played directly into the combat scenario.

Could we get some official feedback on this general situation?

Not without specific names of the cards that were played so that we can check the exact wording.

I will check on the one card from Steampunk and get back to this thread with it once I have access to it again to look through.

My apologies for the delay in updating with the card title.

The card is "Paramagnetic Fixative Vapour"
