True Eradicator, Finish Blow Dragon
Ergh. I never like Gauntlet Buster. But you have to have him as a heart to gain the full skill. A GB2 skill at that: as an ACT, you CB1 and flip a card in the G-Zone face-up, then it gains 5k and a Crit whenever an enemy rear-guard retires for the whole turn, and then if the heart's Gauntlet Buster, the opponent kills off one of their rear-guards.
The only advantage this would possibly have over something like G Narukami is Gauntlet Buster can SOMETIMES go live before Late Game thanks to Egg-Helm Dracokid. Because honestly, I'm not prepared to go into Zorras and then this over something like Conquest Dragon, and certainly not at the expense of being able to retire a lot of things in one turn, which I notice Eradicators aren't good at. Unless it's Tempest Bolt or something but it doesn't work with this card.
Late Game Critical sucks. I'd rather drop Conquest Dragon instead.

Okay, got the obligatory Mortal Kombat joke out of the way, what does Finish Blow bring to the table?
At GB2, CB1 and flip a unit in your G-Zone up, and this gets...  Well, Gauntlet Buster's Limit Break ability, save that this gets 2000 more for each card retired, but even better, you don't need Gauntlet Buster to pull off the +5K/+1 crit power up.
Speaking of which, has anyone seen the artwork on Gauntlet Buster Dragon's secret rare version?
Anyway, *ahem*, Vanguards that gain crits suck!!
Okay, had to get that out of the way, let's look at it for real now, shall we?
If you do have a Gauntlet Buster Dragon heart, your opponent has to retire a rear-guard, thus triggering this.
And we know Eradicators are pretty good at retiring things, not quite as good as Kagero, but not bad at all.
I do like this, due to the fact that it can work with any version of Narukami, but works best with Eradicators.
So, yeah, use it, because this can get pretty big and it demands a perfect guard to stop.
