During a game, when draw a card and I dont want to get it (even if I have 100% chance), is there a way just to ignore the card ?

No. You can try to change the check to use different skill, but sometimes even that does not gurantee that you miss the card.

No.  There's some debate whether you want to consider it a "bug" or an "unimplemented rule," but there is presently no way to pass on acquiring a boon like the rules permit.  As noted above, your best option is to click on the check type in the top-center of the screen and select a skill that the character may not have.  Throwing a single d4 is usually enough to flub a boon check.

 

There was an old thread noting all this a little while back, as well as a newer discussion on how not having the ability to pass on boon checks may pose problems when at the Vault of Greed location.

It might help you to know though that if you manually click on the yellow trashcan icon at the end of your turn you can choose to throw out cards that you don't want. So it at least doesn't clog up your hand. Most of the time that's just as good as not getting it in the first place.

Grabbing a card even with the intention of discarding it afterwards because you didn't even want it in the first place interferes with cards that react with the graveyard, mostly spells like cure and healing cards. It has the possibility of putting the unwanted cards back into the deck and re-drawing them again as dead draws.

While I do wish that we could pass on boon checks it doesn't make as big an issue for most scenarios/parties even on legendary difficulty.
