Eradicator, Gauntlet Buster Dragon is a classic card from the original era of Cardfight!! Vanguard. He is one of the first Eradicators. He earned the title Eradicator because he displayed his incredible strength and Eradicator, Gauntlet Buster Dragon enjoys showing off his power in battle. His signature attack's name is Giga Sparkle Buster!

Eradicator, Gauntlet Buster Dragon's Limit Break gives 3,000 power and one critical to him until the end of the turn when an opposing rear-guard is retired by an effect. Retire as many of your opponent's rear-guards as possible to maximize the ability. The attack will pressure your opponent into a corner. He or she will be forced to use a Perfect Guard or Generation Guard to block the attack. A wise player would not risk you drawing critical triggers to increase the damage.

Break Ride Gauntlet Buster Dragon on top of Eradicator, Vowing Sword Dragon. Vowing Sword Dragon's Break Ride skill retires an opposing rear-guard and gives 10,000 to your new vanguard. The first part of the skill triggers Gauntlet Bust Dragon's Limit Break. Your vanguard will be at 24,000 power with two critical damages at the start of the turn. Your vanguard's power will only increase as more rear-guards are retired to the drop zone!

The Eradicators provide a lot of support to Eradicator, Gauntlet Buster Dragon. I want a supporting cast with effects to retire opposing units. I will be able to use his Limit Break early and often! Eradicator, Egghelm Dracokid is Narukami's Limit Break enabler. He activates Limit Break when you have less than four damage! Lightning Fist Eradicator, Dui's skill gives 5000 power to Eradicator, Gauntlet Buster Dragon when he boosts Gauntlet Buster Dragon! Fiendish Sword Eradicator, Cho-jun's skill forces an opponent to retire a rear-guard if Cho-jun is able to hit the opposing vanguard. Homing Eradicator, Rochishin is effective with the deck. His power appears to be low at 8,000, but he can become a juggernaut with his skill. He gains 5,000 power when an opponent's rear-guard is retired by a card's effect!

Overall, Eradicator, Gauntlet Buster Dragon is a fun card to play. His Limit Break constantly makes him a huge threat when his Limit break is online. Gathering criticals early and often will pressure your opponent. You may be eventually be able to crack through your opponent's defenses. Eradicator, Gauntlet Buster Dragon will eradicate the competition!
