Evaluation

RatingB

Pros

  • Good attack and defense, and can be increased higher if your opponent uses Dragon-type monsters.
  • Very strong against Dragon decks since it will negate their effects, and switches them to defense position.
  • Deals piercing damage when attacking defense position monsters.
  • Fusion summoning this card can be easy if you use fusion substitute monster, since you can use any other dragon type monster as the other material.

Cons

  • Can't attack directly.
  • If you are using a dragon deck, and your opponent takes control of this card (through cards like Enemy Controller), it can potentially one shot you if you don't have any protection.
  • If your opponent does not use any Dragon-type monsters, it is just a high attack monster that can pierce defense position monsters, but can't attack directly.

Tips

Fusion substitutes

Without needing to bring Buster Blader, you can use any Dragon-type monsters to fuse into the Dragon Destroyer. This can make it more versatile and much easier to summon. Red-Eyes B. Dragon now can be used to fusion summon into 3 different monsters, which can make it versatile, especially since Red-Eyes has its own supports as well.

I was wondering, does dragon decks like blue eyes have any counter/answer to buster blader (or any anti-dragon) based deck ?

Where is Buster Dragon?

Something is really wrong. Today is 11/30/19, and for whatever reason I can’t use Fusion Substitute monsters anymore to summon this card.

It used to be Buster Blader/Substitute+Dragon = Fusion

Now only BB+Dragon works.

Using the Destruction Swordsman Fusion Quick Play card like I always have.

This is a HUGE nerf to Buster Blader decks (especially DNA surgery decks) and I’m freaking pissed.

It's not a bug. It's the ruling change.

As already said, it's a Ruling change in OCG. DL uses OCG Rulings.

Hex Sealed Fusion also can only replace Buster Blader, and their second effect cannot be used to bring out this card since this card must be fusion summoned properly.

You can substitute Goddes for Buster Blader. You still need Dragon type monster however. DNA surgery may be helpful

Just a clarification, you can't fusion summon Dark Paladin and this card via the effect of Hex Sealed Fusion monsters(dark and light) right? Because BBTDDS and Dark Paladin can't be special summoned by other ways, right?

Am I right? Because those cards must be fusion summoned and cannot be special summon by other ways. On the other hand, the hex sealed fusion monsters, tribute themselves and other fusion material monsters to special summon a monster from the extra deck. So you can't use their effect to summon these cards. Am I right?

Yes, they must be Fusion Summoned properly, so you can't use Hex Sealed's SECOND effect on them.

However, you can Fusion Summon BBtDS and Dark Paladin by using Hex Sealed's FIRST effect (fusion substitute), as you are still doing a proper Fusion Summon, you just replace one of the materials.

Why if 2 maldoche monsters attacked my buster blader, it didnt make any damage to my opponents life points?

I'd play 3 Goddess of the Third day over 3 Hex Fusion any day. This way I get rid of defense position Decider pretty easy.
PuffingBear
This card and Dark Paladin just has a cool vibe...
EX
can you use light hex sealed fusion and a dragon without polymerization to summon
Buster Blader, the Dragon Destroyer Swordsman? Im trying to experiment with light hex but for some reason I cant get the effect to activate.

No you can't do that because the card says "Must be Fusion Summoned and cannot be Special Summoned by other ways."
