The last part of V-BT05’s Card Review mini series right on the release date.
This is it. The JP release date for Aerial Steed Liberation. And we have one last VR to look at today. “Eradicator, Gauntlet Buster Dragon” and “Supreme Army Eradicator, Zuitan”.
Narukami absolutely hates the front row, doing the best they can to try and bind every rear-guard in the opponent’s front row, be it on a regular rear-guard circle, or an Accel circle. From basic attacks to the whole front row, to moving the front row to the back. Let’s have a look at what the new ace has in store.
V-BT05/005 VR 抹消者 ガントレッドバスター・ドラゴン Eradicator, Gauntlet Buster Dragon
[CONT](VC):During your turn, this unit gets [Power]+5000/[Critical]+1 for each open (RC) in your opponent’s front row.
[ACT](VC):COST [Counter Blast (1) & discard a card from your hand], and bind all of the rear-guards in your opponent’s front row. You may move all of the rear-guards in your opponent’s back row to the (RC) of the same column.
Gauntlet Buster can unleash absolute destructive hell on your opponent, being able to bind every single one of your opponent’s front row rear-guards. Every. Single. One. It can then move from the back row to the front row, for further destruction. Not only that, but it gets a nice Power and Critical boost for your opponent’s empty front row. And it’s not as though calling any units will help, because of the second ability. Having no upper limit on the number of rear-guards it can bind at once makes for a massive counter to pretty much any Accel clan.
V-BT05/024 RR 覇軍の抹消者 ズイタン Supreme Army Eradicator, Zuitan
[AUTO](RC):When your opponent’s rear-guard is bound during your turn, this unit and all “Eradicator, Gauntlet Buster Dragon” on your (VC) or (RC) get [Power]+5000 until end of turn.
[AUTO](RC):At the end of the battle it attacked a vanguard, if there are no rear-guards in your opponent’s front row, COST [put this unit into your soul], and draw a card.
The best part about this is how it strengthens the inherent counter to Accel clans, getting Power when you snipe a unit. Given that it strengthens itself along with every single other Gauntlet Buster on your field, you can allow for some massive field-wide Power increases. Coupled with Gauntlet’s binding, if you bind 3 units, you can get a good 15000 Power for both this and your Gauntlet Busters. With Gauntlet already getting Power for open front row circles, it’s bound to get pretty high Powered. The second ability is a nice icing on the cake, +1 to soul and a draw.
That’s all for V-BT05! Don’t forget to check out some of your previous Card Reviews on the Set.
