Ok, this thing has bug. How can we talk to Konami about this?

My case : My hand has only elemental hero bladedge. My field has only elemental hero ocean + this trap. Was attacked, couldnt special summon. Im pretty sure there wasnt any card that couldnt make me special summon. This kind of case happens quite a lot : with bladedge, vision hero witch, and woodsman.

another requirement might be: you need at least 2 cards in your hand for the opponent to choose from

Odds are they were facing a no Special Summons Vagabond IMO. You can activate it with only a single card in your hand as long as it's a monster you can Summon.
super trap card you can instants summon monster 8 stars in your hand without requirement. just for lucky player. i always get blue eyes white dragon when my LP so low.
i swear i have the card and destiny hero dogma when an enemy attacks it doesnt activate wtf

Please read the card again:
''Must be Special Summoned (from your hand) by Tributing 3 monsters, including at least 1 "Destiny HERO" monster, AND CANNOT BE SPECIAL SUMMONED BY OTHER WAYS''

Well... Look at the description of the trap again. It says: if you can Special summon it, Summon it and if can not, send it to Grave. There is a bug I can see.

There's no bug, Nomi monsters have always says "cannot be special summoned, except by...."

That should have made it clear that you cannot special summon it with A Hero Emerges.

*Nomi monsters prior to PSCT, anyway.

Post-PSCT, they say "cannot be special summoned in any other ways".

Meaning A Hero Emerges cannot special summon them by default.
Can't activate this card when I only have 1 card remaining on hand.
From all the times this card has failed to activate I feel like it always fails when you only have one card left in your hand
I'm having hugs at times with this card i vs a ca deck can't use it and same with a fish deck i faced

hey, if you have problems with a deck, just hug it out!
Pretty I run a Dark deck with 2 barrel dragons and 1 gaia fierce Knight that can be special summon If it's the only card on hand and When I start to brick this can guarantees I'll special summon a strong monster
piece of shit bugged, why sometimes it doesn't work???

Because you're facing AG decks.
I love this card!

I've been having success with this card lately. This coupled with staunch defender on a 3SD deck is showing great promise
Very good. As long as you can control your hand this can be even OP.
Hmm, special summon blue eyes...

Aside from Normal Monsters and anime-exclusive cards, we've never gotten a card in Duel Link...
Is this deck worth investing it? I have over 11k gems.
Oh joy. I missed this event AND now I have a skill I can't even get. I'm gonna be pisse...
