The rules say "when revealed" effects use that keyword in bold.

However, the rules also refer to things like Treachery cards in general or effects like Doomed, Surge, etc. to be effects that are trigged "when revealed", albeit that text in the rules is not in bold.

It feels slightly ambiguous.

A Test of Will and Elanor are much weaker if you read the rules literally...

Keywords and "when revealed" effects are distinct. Neither Eleanor nor Test of Will can stop Doomed, Surge, etc.

That is correct, Elanor and A Test of Will do not cancel Doomed or Surge. They ONLY cancel the effect specifically associated with a "When Revealed:" text.

Just to add

If a treachery card says (in this order)

Doom 2
Surge
When revealed: ........... (anything)


You can still do Eleanor's ability but the card resolves in this order. That means that a doom 2 take effect, then a surge and then you can cancel the "When revealed..." but have to replace it with a new encounter card.

Eleanor's ability ONLY cancels the when revealed part of the treachery cards.
