Here's our new fail condition Grade 3 in case you don't like Daikaiser to run alongside Sin Buster. Barrengrader as a Vanguard can Soulblast 1 and Counterblast 1 to make you ride a card that can perform Legion from the deck. Hello instant Sin Buster, not to mention the Soulblast can go towards fueling Legion. Second skill is RG only; Soulblast 1 to gain 2k power until end of turn, if your Vanguard is a Metalborg.
...Pity that Clan Fight exists for most tournaments otherwise this would be SUPER dumb. But anyway, RG skill isn't really helpful given the initial column it's in assuming a 7k booster (which more often than not usually is in Metalborgs) since it makes 18k and thus to force 5k more guard against an 11k opponent you need two goes with it, so you want it for the guaranteed ride into the potentially game-ending Sin Buster, adding consistency if nothing else.
Barrengrader fits the bill of being able to add consistency to your main gambit making him a good fail-con Vanguard. Run if you don't like Daikaiser.

Oh hey, Sin Buster now has a real back-up if you fail to ride the Vanguard you want.  Seeing as Sin Buster doesn't care about Counter Blasts or the Soul,  might as well make use of it somehow.  Plus this fuels the drop zone for Legion with both its V and R abilities, which is a big plus.  Heck, if it's on R and you have Sin Buster as your Vanguard, you can Soul Blast everything, giving Barrengrader +2000 for each unit that was in the Soul, and making Legion much quicker than before.
Not bad, not bad at all.  Legion support, Sin Buster Support, no need to run Dryon...  Seems like a win all around.
