Questions & Answers

No. “Destroyed:” abilities are resolved immediately before a creature is destroyed and before it leaves play. Annihilation Ritual’s ability triggers when a card has already left play and would enter the discard pile. Therefore, a creature’s “Destroyed:” ability will trigger as usual, before the creature gets purged by Annihilation Ritual. If an ability moves a creature to another out-of-play area that is not the discard pile (such as Bad Penny, Biomatrix Backup or Dextre) the creature would not be purged by Annihilation Ritual.

No. Your hand is considered an out-of-play area and a card in your hand is not considered in play. Therefore, Annihilation Ritual’s ability would not trigger and the creature would enter the discard pile as usual.
