Guess what this G-Unit needs as a heart? Yup, it's Glendios.  As an ACT skill, you CB2, and G Persona Blast to make the opponent take cards from the top of their deck equal to the number of Reverse rear-guards you have and then place them in different rear-guard circles locked. Then if you have 5 damage, they are instantly Omega Locked.
Sounds neat, and it can sort of work to shut down a good portion of the field given enough rear-guards. But it is unfortunately held back by a fatal flaw.
Unlike original Glendios, it has no clause to treat Reverse units as Link Joker. So odds are Omega Loop's the only thing attacking this turn because Lord's preventing anything not called Reverse Cradle from taking part. Which is dumb; what's the point in shutting down attackers the opponent has when the card advantage will just be equaled out by the cards you CAN'T take away from the opponent? Never mind the fact it can set up World End, because that's ludicrously easy to stop and reliant on chance no matter how you swing it (good luck having 5 Reverse rear-guards without the lack of shield fucking you right over).
Having the Reverse Link Joker clause would have made this amazing. Pity it's currently chance-reliant and all in all sort of hoping the opponent's just irrational.

So, who likes to win with World's End?  Who hates trying to lock around that pesky Resist?  Wouldn't you like to lock more than one card a turn with Glendios?
Well, here you go, if Glendios is your heart, you can CB2 and persona flip and then pull a Cold Death Dragon on your opponent.  For each Reversed unit on your side of the field as a rear guard, you call the top card of their deck as locked.
"Resist?  That's cute, you're locked anyway since I'm targeting your zone and not you."
Then, if you're at 5 damage and this is your Vanguard, well, Omega lock and your opponent has to hope and pray they can hit you, because if they can't and don't have anyway to unlock cards, they might as well scoop because you win.
Basically, it gives Glendios decks that are more Beat-down oriented a chance to get the World's End Ultimate Break off.
Best part is, you only need two of this in your G-deck.
