I've found that I play better with Dante when I'm constantly on the offensive going for my lvl 3, then I react to a situation when I can use the EC kill confirm. I'm still working on reacting to those situations, but it just takes time. I see too many dante's block until they can do the empty cancel when they can be attacking and getting AP much faster.

I could help you out when im free (usually weekends). Other great Dante players that are a lot better than me include Pheracus and Cutscene_Dante (that i can think of off the top of my head).

 

Also, check out these vids for some ideas:

Just watched those videos, the second one will be helpful I'll work on the ones demonstrated in it. That first video though? Nope! Just nope! That is freaking ridiculous, too much twitch reaction for me Smiley LOL. I remember seeing him do a video with Kat too, and I thought I was good with her (w/o abusing (air) down circle).

Yeah that's what I usually do, focus on getting my 3 or 2 (depending on who my opponents are), since I can't EC and I only know one simple guarantee for his 2, I usually go for my 3 and have ended up getting it, sometimes without paying attention and then I realize I'm a few hits from it. Only times I get kills with my 1 is when I see an opportunity and land the timing or in the situation that there is a Zeus and his doing... well any attack really, it's easy to get around them and use Dante's 1 as well.
Also the ontinuous blocking is called, at least by me and my friend, turtling. I hate when people do that, turtle then abuse the EC, otherwise I'm fine with the EC in the game.

I agree with the opinions here; as much as I'm impressed with people who can EC, it shouldn't be abused. Honestly, the only reason I bothered to try and learn it is so that if I get stuck in a 1v1 situation in Stock, I wouldn't be hopeless against characters who can easily KC their Lv. 1.

As in executing it? I use UTriangle, BCircle, Square as my inputs if it matters, but half the time, I find myself using Aerial Shredder instead of EC.

As in trouble with executing it or trouble with others using it?
Execution: I have no freaking idea what I'm even doing with the EC Smiley LOL
Others: Players turtling (just blocking) until you come just close enough and then immediately begin to loop with the EC. As I've said, it's the turtling and looping that gets me, not the EC itself.
