Sage-saint Professor, Bigbelly
I overlooked the 'other' clause on this card and suddenly I got a lot less hype. New Bigbelly is GB2 restricted, is once per turn, costs counterblast 1 and a G Persona Blast, and then one of your rear-guards gains 4k for every face-up G Unit in your G Zone until end of turn. The chosen unit also gets a skill until end of turn: if its attack hits the vanguard, for every face-up G Unit in your G Zone, one of your other rear-guards stands.
No infinite attack problems makes me sad. But whatever. At minimum he's giving a column 8k, more if you tossed out some G Guardians before then I guess. So you're looking at an attack that must be G Guardian'ed or Perfect Guarded lest you stare down more attacks (pity Crayon Tiger and his ilk's skill is once per turn, huh?) so at least it means pressure spread out over several columns, which is always good.
I can name better finishers but for now I'll take a huge column and pressure over some sad-as-fuck plus to you.

G4 Bigbelly is nice to go into to eat down an opponent's hand and follow up with Managarmr on the next turn, unless you get the restand and end it right there. You could give one unit the power buff and another unit the on-hit effect, but you're most likely giving both effects to the same unit. Ideally, you should also have a Horton (Tusk Master) or Crayon Tiger on board to restand whatever unit got G4 Bigbelly's effect. 

Bigbelly is a perfect example of when a deck should actually be running Stand triggers: devastating on-hit effects. With a normal attacking pattern, you swing with the unit with the on-hit, then Bigbelly, then swing with Horton/Crayon Tiger to restand the unit that's currently a death sentence. Checking a Stand trigger before you even use Horton/Tiger means you actually might get the on-hit off, and that's just downright mean. 

Grab your Bigbellies and laugh as your opponent has to dump their whole hand while you're drawing twice as much.
