Flame Wing Steel Beast, Denial Griffin
In a game where every attack is going to benefit you in one of two ways and therefore has no excuse for caution, what a rare treat it is to remind people some of us can't get complacent just yet. Being able to actually penalise something for attacking is a welcome addition to the game, with about two clans afterwards following suit, and that's why Flame Wing Steel Beast Denial Griffin found its way here. I'll admit I enjoyed my time with it, just as much as everyone hated it, and me, for having two in my G Zone.

Ok, so G-Guardians was a great concept in general to the game. The acceleration into your better Stride bosses helped if you got a Heal trigger early and a lot of G-Guards offer great utility *coughUlurucough*.There's a lot of great G-Guards, but Denial Griffin takes the cake still for doing exactly what its clan needs from it and for being usable for every Kagero deck. Kagero isn't OMGtier0 right now, but they'll always be able to impede the opponent post-Stride. I'll repeat my gripe about this card: you don't have to drop the adequate amount of shield value because you're straight-up getting rid of the rearguard that's attacking you. Y'all lucky I don't work at Bushiroad, otherwise I would have worded Denial Griffin like Lizard Soldier, Bellog and removed the counterblast cost.

Narukami may have gotten their proactive G-Guard, but it requires setup that restricts it to Vanquisher.dek. Chronojet's Heterohound can get rid of a current threat in your face, but it still gives the opponent a unit that can be utilized later unless you use more resources to bounce the new unit. 

For being the shining example of what exactly a clan needs out of their G-Guards and being a complete dick in general, Denial Griffin gets the 8th spot on this year's list.
