A Phoenix has his weapon locked. Can house shyeel magister use Whip snap to move the Phoenix to break the weapon locked?

Neither model can advance or be pushed while involved in a lock. A lock is broken automatically if:
An effect causes either model to move or be placed;

Whip Snap causes an advance:

... immediately after the attack is resolved this model or a friendly model within 3" of it can advance up to 3".

Thus, no, by rules priority (clause one does not apply, and clause two is in favor of the weapon lock prohibition) the Phoenix does not advance and thus does not break the lock.

No:


If this attack hits an enemy model, immediately after the attack is resolved this model or a friendly model within 3" of it can advance up to 3".


Neither model can advance or be pushed while involved in a weapon lock.[/b]

If an effect were to cause the weapon-locked model to move or be placed such as by a slam, Telekinesis, Slimpstream, etc, then that would break the lock.
