Dark Element, Dizmel
I guess one advantage Cray Elemental G Guardians have
over the other, shittier CE cards is that their niche
uses can be used for clutch situations and the rest of
the time can be safely ignored. I guess in the end
that's what drew people to use Dark Element Dizmel. I
use the past tense because now almost everything has a
25k shield-worth G Guardian that caused this to get
dropped faster than your dad's trousers during the drunk
Thanksgiving/Christmas bender. Nowadays unless you
suffer from very severe VMAX or Commander Laurel
paranoia there isn't much reason to use this.
Nonetheless, fuck if I know anything better to replace
this with, so you shut face.
The second and last G-Guard to make this list, Dizmel
is one of the only true staples of Vanguard decks. Other
games like Yu-Gi-Oh have no-brainer cards that are
included in all decks, but until Cray Elementals were
released, Vanguard never really had "staples" meant for
D-Police players hate this card. Once people switched
over to the countercharge PGs that couldn't guard
rearguards, D-Police players decided it would be cute to
attack a rearguard, get 3 drive checks, then do it again
like D-Police was meant to hoard cards like OTT. The X
players did that too, but their time has long past haha.
Now, D-Police players are punished for taking the gamble
and hoping you don't have a Heal trigger in hand. (And
yes, they still take that gamble for some reason.)
Having a G-Guard with Resist is great too, cause they're
immune to Guard-breaking effects. The only other G-Guard
right now is Saint-Germain, and while his requirement
for Resist is easy, it's still an extra requirement.
In general, it's always annoying when people want to
drag out the game and attack your rearguards. Aqua Force
and Nova Grappler players can definitely feel where I'm
coming from. Now, the opponent knows they can
potentially get cockblocked heavily for targeting your
Broken Hearts, Tidal Assaults, and Sazandas.
Dizmel is a damn near staple for any deck. The only
decks that don't really care about the utility is Magia,
Hollow, and Great Nature (when the Trinity Dragon
Character Booster is released next year). And even then,
those decks might want to run 1 for extra assurance
against Guard-breaking effects (and D-Police isn't the
only clan with that ability). That's why Dizmel earned
the 2nd spot on this year's list.
