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.

I last used it during the Espa Roba event just as a change to see if I could catch somebody with it.

I landed it about 7 times when they tributed Lava Golem.

Nobody ever expects it these days, only the usual garbage like canadia etc.

It's not broken though, just not used often enough for people to counter it effectively.
Wow I can't believe some people actually believe this card is overpowered... almost nobody plays it anyway. It's kinda situational
Why trap jammer doesn't work on this card?

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?

Trap cards cant be activated the turn they are set.

There is no way to set Blast Held By a Tribute in your opponent's turn in Duel Links, nor is there a way for your opponent to attack during your turn, so that comment is rather misplaced.

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.

Dust Tornado wasn't available in Duel Links when I posted that reply.

Incidentally, Dust Tornado isn't the only card that can Set a Trap in the opponent's turn available in Duel Links now, since we have Mana Dragon Zirnitron as well.

Technically this was always possible regardless, since the opponent could set a Blast Held and give control of it with the Surprise Present skill anyway. ;p
this card mission is annoying as fuck.

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.

Kaibaman special summoned BEWD? Read the card, please

Kaibaman man's card reads as TRIBUTE this card to summon BEWD...... Therefore that should be classed as a trib summ, not a special!

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.

This card's effect is definitely box material, not free drop material
You activated it in the damage step.
