Unless I'm not getting the gist of your landing, when the nose starts to flare up wards at a rapid rate during slow landing speeds, just elevons is not enough to apply leverage to get the nose down. Hence the extra elevator will add more force in making the nose respond. Of course, if the elevator is applied at the wrong time, the extra surface will act against you.
