As long as your opponent attacks with a TRIBUTE SUMMONED monster, and the Synchro monster is in Attack Position, then yes, that Synchro monster will be destroyed alongside that Tribute Summoned monster.
Broken cancer card? It makes Wall of Disruption look like a joke. Whenever I faced someone who successfully activated this on me, I lost. Including a situation where if it wasn't for the 1000 damage I would still win.
It's not something seen in the meta. But when it's used, it's absurdly broken. It allows for a n00b who lost all his monsters and has nothing else on the field to turn a duel they could never turn otherwise (a Wall of Disruption would just delay things).
This comment of the "intellectual" guy theorizing how this card could affect monsters present in the meta is depressing. He's thinking hard to see how this card could affect high level monsters in the meta, completely failing to realize meta duels compose a minority's portion of the total number of duels in this game.
And also overestimates Witch Raider's effect, thinking she has ways to avoid this card... but that's only if it was set when she was tribute summoned. Set it after she's on the board and watch it destroy her completely.
Yeah, just happened to me. Was in a fight against Ishizu, using obelisk with a trap jammer face down (it was there for several turns by this point) attacked with obelisk, and she triggered this, and I couldn't use trap jammer against it, chains is on auto, so I know that wasn't an issue, since I've had that with anti-magic arrows
Every thing was going according to plan ... I was playing with Yami Marik, I did summon Lava Golem to my opponent's side, and set "Blast Held by a Tribute" face-down. When my opponent attacked me, I wasn't able to activate my trap, and there was nothing that would affect that on my opponent's side, so, I simply lost ... Could anyone please give me a possible explanation?
Actually, there's a way to do that and it works for any trap card, but you need 2 cards: Temple of the kings which lets activate a trap card the turn it is Set. And Dust Tornado which destroy one S/T your op. controls, then it lets Set 1 S/T from your hand.
Example of deck. Wait until she set blast held. When u have quill, exchange and dragon, use quill to return blast held to her hand, activate exchange and take his blast. Surely she will pick dragon. Set the trap and once she attack, activate it. Repeat one more time and you done.
You know that just because there's a tribute doesn't make it a tribute Summon, right? If it worked like that, believe me you would see this card popping up in every Weevil burn deck that ran Lava Golem.
