Many people asked me about why you cannot torrential tribute the stardust special summoned out by starlight road due to heavy storm's resolution being the last thing to happen. Hence i would like to bring your attention to these 2 cards.


Effect: Activate only when an effect is activated that would destroy 2 or more cards you control. Negate the effect and destroy that card. Then, you can special summon 1 "stardust dragon" from your extra deck.



Effect: Discard 1 card. Negate the activation of a spell card and destroy it.


Please do remember that magic jammer is a spell speed 3 trap, i purposely choose a old print magic jammer because it does not have the counter-trap symbol, for easier reference. Hence, let us compare and assume magic jammer is a normal trap like starlight road in this instance.

starlight road's text:
Negate the effect and destroy that card.

magic jammer's text:
Negate the activation of a spell card and destroy it.

Both parallels in their destruction effect, however what sets them apart is the negation part of the text. Starlight road merely negates the effect, but not the ACTIVATION. magic jammer negates the card plus the ACTIVATION. 

As such, heavy storm is still resolving due to the above reason. and it is also that small little difference that sets very similar yet different cards apart. 

WOW! I think i had just used a paradox. LOL...
