Tips, related cards, skills

Eliminating the League

Monster destroying cards like Eliminating the League can be used during your main phase. This lets you activate Swordmaster's ability right away, potentially destroying multiple monsters if they are the same type.

Miracle Restoring

This will let you special summon a Buster Blader monster from the graveyard, without needing to use 2 tribute to get him to the field.

Wizard Buster Destruction Sword

When equipped to a Buster Blader monster, cards like Blue Dragon Summoner or Yomi Ship's effect will be negated.

With buster blader back in the meta, this card need some love too :(
buster blader decks in the tcg are so much fun! i've been writing about supporting this card to konami in almost every chance i got. I suggested Dark Magic Curtain (for DM) and they delivered so who knows? maybe someday we'll finally get to see this awesome archetype's full potential on duel links!
This card need more support
with 48 packs left the remaining cards are 2 UR (vampire lord and dark paladin) and 2 SR (dark general freed and buster blader swordmaster)
should i reset or wait till i get vampire and paladin (are they worth it)
this is my first box so i don't have any copy of vampire lord or dark paladin
thanks for reading and hopefully answering

you're 48 packs left, just wait and get the URs you want rather than reset, mathematically the odds are against you if you reset now and hope to pull vampire or dark paladin

Dark Paladin quite great bro...
As long as you have cards in your hand,you will render opponent's spell useless....
Is it just me or does the last effect not work half the time? Just lost a duel because even though I equipped a water monster I destroyed the previous turn and the opponent had a water monster on the field, it didn't let me activate the effect to send the equip to the graveyard which i needed to do so I could wipe then replace that with my 3rd A forces card..
