Buster Blader DNA Surgery: deck recipe [Oct 2019 Updated]

Duel Links Breaking News
Yubel event guide!
update 12/10/2019

Overview

Wait, you don’t have Cosmic Cyclone? How about Treacherous Trap Hole? No? Well, it looks you don’t get to play today. Buster Blader, the Dragon Destroyer Swordsman, and DNA Surgery are still an incredible combination of cards that, similarly to Yubel - Terror Incarnate and Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys, can almost completely lock your opponent out of the game. So what’s new? Well, in this version of the deck we get to play two copies of Pot of Greed just to make sure we can assemble our main combo.

How to Use

Buster Whelp of the Destruction Swordsman

Buster Whelp is a Level 1 Tuner that, when Normal Summoned, allows you to add 1 “Destruction Sword” card from your Deck to the hand. Buster Whelp is used primarily to search Destruction Swordsman Fusion, but you could technically use it to add Buster Blader, the Destruction Master from your Deck to your hand since, unlike the original Buster Blader, it’s part of the archetype.

You can Tribute Buster Whelp to Special Summon 1 “Buster Blader” from your hand or Graveyard. This effect can be used to Special Summon Buster Blader, the Destruction Master from the Graveyard since its name is “Buster Blader” while he’s on the field or Graveyard, but not from the hand.
If you control a Buster Blader, you can Special Summon Buster Whelp from the Graveyard by discarding 1 “Destruction Sword” card.

Special Summoning Buster Whelp will not trigger its effect, but it will give you access to Stardust Dragon and Scrap Dragon. Keep in mind that you can only use one of these last two effects of Buster Whelp per turn and only once during that turn, which means that you can’t Special Summon a Buster Blader or Buster Blader, the Destruction Master by Tributing Buster Whelp and then Special Summon the Level 1 Tuner from the Graveyard via its own effect.

Destruction Swordsman Fusion

Destruction Swordsman Fusion is essentially a Quick-Play version of Polymerization that can only Special Summon Fusion Monsters that specifically list “Buster Blader” as Fusion Material, meaning Buster Blader, the Dragon Destroyer Swordsman and Dark Paladin, but, unlike Polymerization, it allows you to use monsters from your hand or either side of the field.

Destruction Swordsman Fusion can be searched via Buster Whelp and, if you combine it with DNA Surgery, it can be used to Special Summon Buster Blader, the Dragon Destroyer Swordsman while also getting rid of a monster on your opponent's side of the field.

Destruction Swordsman Fusion doesn’t target or destroy, which means that Neos Fusion or any other card or effect that would normally protect your opponent’s monsters—is completely useless against it. Even if your opponent negates the activation of Destruction Swordsman Fusion, you can add it back to your hand by simply discarding a card.

Pot of Greed (Cup of Ace)

Master of Destiny literally turns Cup of Ace into Pot of Greed. You do have to run at least four more cards with “coin tossing” effects, but the increase in consistency is definitely notable. Use Cup of Ace to draw through your Deck, assemble your main combo and lock your opponent.

Fiend Comedian

Fiend Comedian is a pretty interesting Trap Card that can give you the upper hand in quite a few matchups. If Master of Destiny is still in effect, you can always remove from play all cards in your opponent’s Graveyard, which is particularly relevant against Darklords, Six Samurais, Neos Fusion and Invoked Neos.

Even if you fail or you just decide to call the coin toss wrong, you can end up milling Destruction Swordsman Fusion, which can be added to your hand from the Graveyard by discarding a card.

DNA Surgery

Buster Blader, the Dragon Destroyer Swordsman and DNA Surgery are a very powerful combination of cards that can essentially shut down a good portion of the current top-tier decks; Buster Blader locks all Dragon-Type monsters on the opponent’s side of the field into Defense Position and prevents them from activating their effects and this Continuous Trap can turn all monsters on the field into Dragon-Type monsters.

Buster Blader, the Dragon Destroyer Swordsman gains 1000 ATK and DEF for each Dragon-Type monster the opponent controls or is in their Graveyard, it can’t attack directly, but its effect does give it piercing damage.

Dark Paladin

Dark Paladin allows you to negate the activation of Spell Cards by discarding a card; this effect is not limited to a “once per turn” use like Wiz, Sage Fur Hire or Silent Magician. You can Special Summon Dark Paladin using either Polymerization or Destruction Swordsman Fusion and King of the Swamp and Buster Blader as Fusion Materials.

You can play more “Arcana Force” monsters (since all of them fit the requirement for Master of Destiny), take out Twin Barrel Dragon, Time Wizard, and Fiend Comedian, and add Cards from the Sky to further increase your chances of getting to DNA Surgery.

Weaknesses

  • Consistency is still an issue from time to time, but keep in mind that we are talking about a deck whose main combo can almost completely rule out the opponent from the game.

  • Cosmic Cyclone, Double Cyclone, and Twister can be used to get rid of DNA Surgery.

  • The Sanctified Darklord can be used to negate the effect of Buster Blader, the Dragon Destroyer Swordsman.

  • Buster Blader, the Dragon Destroyer Swordsman cannot attack your opponent directly, which means that your opponent can just decide to not play any monsters until they find a solution to Buster Blader, the Dragon Destroyer Swordsman or until you simply run out of cards. You can still attack your opponent with Goddess with the Third Eye, the original Buster Blader, and Dark Paladin, but playing other monsters will expose you to threats such as Lava Golem and Treacherous Trap Hole.

  • Strong Trap Cards like Drowning Mirror Forcecan get rid of Buster Blader, the Dragon Destroyer Swordsman and set you back completely. Recovery is not exactly this deck’s forte.

Excuse me sir, but red eyes suck and are relivively low teir. If you want a dragon baised deck atleast go blue eyes so you wont get bodied with every other matchup

They mean the red-eyes buster blader build. And they're correct. access to Red-Eyes fusion cuts dpwn the chance of a brick, and Red-Eyes Slash can negate target-effects, like cyclone and trap hole cards. It comes with its own set of difficilties, but I find that the Red-Eyes fusion hybrid deck with draw sense light is far more consistent.

Do BBTDDS negates the effect of Yubel, Terror Incarnate's effect on destroying all the monsters at the end phase? Or that effect is considered as continuous?

It negates it.

If you have DNA on the field they are considered dragon tipes, so they can't activate their effects

I personally run the deck with Draw Sense: Light, if brick and dont die first turn you can draw a dragon, which you can use to search the fusion so ypu only need BB or a replacement to whip out big daddy, bonus points if DNA is active, you can also use Cosmic to chunk yourself down to activate it

This deck is not consistent anymore. If you struggle against it, it's because your parents are neanderthals

If you struggle with consistency, try the version with 3 Necro fusion and red-eyed dragon
It does wonders for me.
I can vomit 2 - 3 Buster bladers in several turns with it. Reached EZ KOG this season, Blue eyes match ups are auto win

Why can't I use the effect of Light Hex Sealed fusion to summon BBTDDS? I have light hex and a dragon monster on the field. Thanks in advance.

Therefore, you can't use The Hex sealed fusion monsters (dark and light) tribute effects to fusion summon the Dark Paladin and BBTDDS?

Yes, you can't. It's a Special Summon, but they needs to be specifically Fusion Summoned properly.

And I beat pre-nerf Koaki Meiru with Roids once. Are Roids tier 1 now? No, so stop saying nonsense and stay in Silver.
