The equipped monster loses 500 ATK and DEF. If the equipped monster destroys an opponent's monster by battle, destroy all monsters your opponent controls with the same Type as the destroyed monster. (A monster can only be equipped with 1 Union Monster at a time. If the equipped monster would be destroyed, destroy this card instead.)

            Today's card is Buster Blaster. Buster Blaster has a couple of good things going for him, the number one being that he's a 1 star monster for one for one. Buster Blaster does have a nice ability to destroy swarms but it's really only effective against low attack power swarming, like plant synchro, and most likely they will get rid of all there low attacking creatures t synch into stronger monster. While you can use one for one on this card to bring him to the field quickly, this card does decrease the attack of the equipped monster by 5oo and in some cases this is just low enough to get run over on the next turn, but hey, at least you get the union ability off on him.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 2/5

Monday: Buster Blaster

Kicking off the week we have Buster Blaster, a new union monster from EXVC. It has 0 atk and def so it won't be doing much in the way of attacking or defending really. It is Earth attributed and a machine, two highly supported archetypes. It's ability decreases the monster's attack and defense by 500 when it equips to them. However if it kills an opponent's monster in battle, it also blows up all other monsters they control of the same type. This could come in handy if you are facing something like Blackwings or Six Samurai where you know everything is the same type. I'm sure the look on your opponent's face if you pulled this off would be worth it even if you end up losing. Other than that, there really isn't much to this card. I guess if you wanted to it could be something to tech into a Machina sidedeck or maybe ever Karakuri since they can change the battle position of opponent's monsters rather easily. I doubt anyone will be doing that though and I don't see it seeing much play at all especially in a main deck.

Traditional: 1/5
Advanced: 1.5/5
Artwork: 2.5/5 Kinda getting sick of all the transformer cards at this point really.

Buster Blaster......strange level one earth type robot thing with 0 atk/def. Its a union also so it has the equip/unequip effect with the whole "destroy this card instead" bit. Its a one for one target which is also nice. The equipped monster loses 500 atk/def. That's...well that's not all that impressive now is it. But...but! If said equipped monster destroys an opponents monster by battle you can destroy all your opponents monsters of the same type. Now thats pretty darn impressive...why can't you do that without lowering atk/def?  Well then it would be pretty decent. As it stands its really not that great of a card. What would I even want to run this in and why would I be running it to begin with?  I mean, sure that effect could possibly be useful against sams or zombies or something with just one type but overall why? It has slim potential in my opinion.

He's back!  After doing some lengthy and enjoyable traveling, and taking the time to move, I've been without internet access for sometime, but here I am!  Buster Blaster opens the week, a new Union monster, who is Level 1, and an Earth attributed Machine, with 0 attack and defense.  Now right off the bat, you probably wonder why you would use this guy.  He lowers the attack and defense of the equipped Monster by 500 points.  But when the equipped Monster destroys an opponent's Monster, all monsters of that same type are destroyed.
 
It's certainly an interesting effect.  Likely there will be other monsters on the Field, and equally likely, they should be the same type, which could really assist in taking something stronger down that you might not be able to do currently.  The attack loss is something to look at though, as you probably would chose to equip a higher level or more powerful Monster, but then it raises the question, why wouldn't you just destroye the Monster out right?  Unfortunately, I just don't see this as a very useful card overall, as reflected in the ratings...
