The big baddie that everyone knew would be somewhere
on this list, ABC – Dragon Buster comes in at #4 and
the highest rated monster card. ABC was only rated 8th
on my list, behind 3 other monsters. To some, this
might sound absurd, but I honestly have always felt
that ABC owes a large chunk of its success to Union
Hangar, which I rated as my #12 card of 2016 and
almost put higher. Considering Hangar had up to 6
deck presence (3 Hangar and 3 Terraforming), ABC was
granted so much power and consistency over, say, the
new Magnet Warriors, which weren’t granted that one
ridiculous spell card they needed (Magnetic Field
doesn’t even compare). This is supported by the
recent restriction of Union Hangar in the OCG. ABC
is still at 3.
But I digress. ABC is without a doubt a peerless
monstrosity. It’s quite literally a BLS in its sheer
dominance and ease to summon, but without having to
run it in the deck. It ruled the OCG with impunity
for a time and is still a force to be reckoned with
in both the OCG and TCG. And considering how many
different decks there are right now that are
producing results in big tournaments, especially in
the OCG, there’s a really good chance it can stay
relevant, even with Hangar getting hit in Japan. So,
ABC definitely deserves a top 10 spot for 2016, but
I think #4 is way too high.
Letters of the alphabet: A, B, C! Our #4 card on
the Top 10 Cards of 2016 is ABC-Dragon Buster!
Position on my list: N/A
Like Cyber Dragon Infinity, ABC-Dragon Buster just
barely missed a spot on my list. This card is pretty
much the reason ABC is a top Deck, as a 3000 ATK
beater that also has a banishing Quick Effect and
the ability to dodge anything on the opposing turn
and replace itself with three floaters is insane.
The existence of multiple Dragon Busters is one of
the reason ABC has such an absurd grind game (along
with Union Hangar being a +2 on the first turn and
+1 every subsequent turn). Dragon Buster is the
heart and soul of the Deck’s power, and while I can
see why some would like it Limited, doing so will
hurt the Deck too much, so hitting the other form of
advantage (Union Hangar) seems like the better
But regardless, ABC-Dragon Buster is one of the best
cards to come out this year, and one of the best
Fusion monsters ever printed.
Hello Pojo Fans,
ABC-Dragon Buster comes in at #4 for our countdown.
This monster has reinforced the idea of playing one
in your own Extra Deck alongside Ghost Reaper and
Winter Cherries in your main deck to have a counter
to dealing with it.
This fusion is very easy to Special Summon, needing
the monsters (A, B, and C) on the field or in the
grave. A 1-for-1 banish during either turn is great
in getting rid of your opponents cards and avoiding
any destruction backlash. The best effect of Buster
Dragon may be its ability to save itself during your
opponents turn. Tribute to Special Summon back A, B,
and C, in any position. If you combo it with XYZ,
those monsters are targets for this effect as well.
After you've tributed this monster you can still
Special Summon it from the graveyard by any means as
long as you Special Summoned it correctly the first
It has a lot going for it and support behind it. It
could be what Union-based decks needed to be
Not too long ago we reviewed a card that scored a
4.67/5. I gave ABC-Dragon Buster a 5/5 for being
strong, defensive, and offensive. Since we are all
sure that this monster will be banned or limited in
the near future, owning one becomes imperative. Just
one in the extra deck allows players to better
utilize ghost cherries banishing effect. Since 4 is
my favorite number, I am ok with this monster being
in the 4 out of 10 spot this year, but I had placed
it higher personally.
#4--ABC-Dragon Buster. Simply awesome newer card
in the year, and one that rightfully belongs on the
latter portion of our list. ABC Dragon Buster is
superior to XYZ Dragon Cannon in every way. First,
it's still an untraditional Fusion, brought out by
removing the necessary pieces from the Field from
play. It has 3000 attack instead of 2800 and
has two effects. Instead of discarding to
destroy a card like XYZ, you discard to target and
remove a card on the Field from play. Also
during your opponent's turn, you can tribute this
card to bring the pieces back. Or any
combination there of. These guys made a pretty
immediate splash on the tournament scene, and with
good reason. Enjoy it now, we're gonna have to
see what happens on the next Ban go around, but I
can't see this being left unrestricted entirely.
