I used Kieser Seahorse to get BEWD and my overwhelm did not work against any traps or effects. Help?

that wasn't count as tribute summon dude! it must be in normal way to tribute, not tribute from 1 card monster effect; special+tribute=special tribute Ring-a-Ding Baby!!

I keep getting a glitch where my Overwhelm won't trigger when I have a lvl 7 face up that I tribute summoned. Any idea why?

you need to set first your overwhelm and wait for your opponents turn before it can be activate, and make sure that you already switch your kazejin into face up attack pos. hopes this help

i tribute summoned bew with a kaiba man which the card still states is a tribure summon and overwhelm was on the feild for 2 turns and wouldnt activate when i was attacked with a monster whos effect was if it attacks a monster in defence to destroy that monster with no battle damage so the guy used enemy controller switched my bew to defence and destroyed it all while i was helpless to activate ov

Then, BEWD was summoned through Special Summon. Kaibaman effect: you tribute him (think like an Econ take or a Ritual Summon) to SPECIAL SUMMON a BEWD. That is different from a Tribute Summon

I try this card to my gravekeepers deck :)
Btw, it looks like CV but it cant negate spell card

True, but CV can't negate effect activation, so that's something at least.

Mausoleum of the Emperor considered normal summon,

So, this card wont work right ?
Guess, i gotta give it a try.

Correct: Mausoleum won't work because the monster has to be tribute summoned.

So this happens, i tribute summon BEWD using bubonic vermin flip summon. Then i added overwhelm to my back row.i waited for almost 2 turns for overwhelm to be active since it doesnt work on my enemy's security orb then after 2 turns my BEWD was destroyed by michezure hence i got overwhelm.lol

Did you Flip Summon Bubonic or the Blue Eyes? If you flip summoned Blue Eyes then he was originally Tribute Set and never Tribute Summoned...

works perfectly if you dont have CV yet, can work with stray lambs tribute set or cost down. you just need to make sure that you set first overwhelm and wait for your opponents turn or your next turn. and make sure to switch first your 7* up monster into a faceup atk pos if you used stray lambs.
