Then use "Emblem of Dragon Destroyer" to search "Buster Blader". Use this card's second effect to Special Summon "Buster Blader", then equip "Dragon Buster Destruction Sword" from your hand to him, Special Summon it using its third effect, and use them to Synchro Summon "Buster Dragon".

  • Use the first Effect to search for "Prologue of the Destruction Swordsman", and try to get this card into Graveyard, by its own effect or otherwise. Then in your opponents turn, activate "Prologue of the Destruction Swordsman", sending Destruction Sword Memories and a "Buster Blader" monster from the Deck to the Graveyard. Then chain "Destruction Sword Memories" to banish a Dragon and a "Buster Blader" monster to summon both "Buster Dragon" and Buster Blader, the Dragon Destroyer Swordsman to lock your opponents monsters from having their effects.
