The game is so freaking broken; apparently "Elemental HERO Blazeman" isn't considered an "Elemental HERO monster"...

You cannot special summon except by fusion when blazeman uses its effect.
Stardust can't negate this card.

Yeah, the reveal part means this card is not guaranteed to destroy, as a result, Stardust can't respond to it.

Hello my friend it is me TIME WIZARD - you see when "Hero Counterattack" is played the card in question is not 100% guaranteed to destroy a monster. Thus means our little Stardust Dragon misses his timing and then goes POP like a bottle of fizzy drink!

Stardust missing the timing... hmm, yep... I've seen that before, thanks.
This card is buggy and broken.
Necroshade is revealed, opponent target is destroyed, but Necroshade isn't summoned. :(
From wikia I read:
"This card can be used to Summon "Elemental HERO Bladedge", Elemental HERO Necroshade" and "Elemental HERO Neos", which would normally require Tributes."
Its so weird how they are so conservative on D hero and E Hero cards, but for Fkin Amazons, they'll give them a trap card that auto destroys any monster
Hero Blast is a better Trap. Konami should have put that as a drop.
bad for an sr

"a hero emerges" can be used on different type monster card that not named as "E-hero", some monster also have the effect that destroy 1 monster on the filed when they are special summoned.
