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.

Like this card would even be good...

It is hard to summon (3 cards to get it) and doesn't even have protection from spells or traps.

Dark Paladin can't be special summoned except by fusion. So in this case there is no improvement.

Learn to read before throwing out accusations.

Cannon and Claw wouldn't be able to activate their discard effect, meaning if this card is up on the field turn 1, Zane cannot get the dragons into the graveyard so they can be equipped, and cannot search Inferno either.

Yes, Cannon and Claw couldn't activate the effects, this is a good observation. But we all know that being able to summon this card on turn 1 is not that easy as it depends on luck. But this is a good card overall.

played against a Seto running dragons, who started his turn owning the field with a 3k dragon and another 4* dragon vs my 1 dragon. He summons darkflare dragon, uses his effect to drop Kidmodo to his graveyard, and summons a Blue eyes...so 3 high atk dragons..but can't attack that turn.

I have 1 card in my hand (buster bladder), my next draw is Poly...game over. The dragon destroyer arrived on field with over 7k attack..

There is a card in the card traer called hex sealed fusión, something like that, get 3 of those instead
<< Anonymous

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

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.

No, but if you have a "Dragon Type Monster" in your hand/field you can use a substitute for "Buster Blader".

Why I can't destroy this with Devine Wrath? Although it's effect is activated when I summon a dragon monster and it's changed to defense position.

cuz his efect just resolves is not an activation

Same reason you can't activate Divine Wrath in response to a monster's piercing damage.
<< Anonymous(Brwa)

Cuz it's a continuous effect. Divine Wrath can only negate effects at the point of activation. Continuous effects just happen automatically without activation. Activation would be Dark Paladin's effect that negates spell cards.

Great explanation above. Another tip for you: when monster effect activation takes place, you will see huge portrait of monster popping on screen.

Why can't I fusion summon this card with "1 buster blader + 1 fusion substitute monster"? Though I can do the opposite thing (1 dragon + 1 fusion substitute)!

Am I missing something here?!

More than likely because the fusion sub has a specific card they're subbing for (buster blader) when you have a dragon in your hand whereas having bb in your hand, the sub monster has no specific card to sub for this not becoming a dragon type

I think you are using the other 'Buster Blader, the Destruction Swordmaster' card which only 'buster blader' when it is on the field
<< Anonymous(VSS9)
Anonymous Reply
the other person already replied with the correct answer. You can't use fusion substitutes to substitute for non-specific materials. So you can't substitute for "1 Dragon type monster" you can only sub for "Buster Blader."
