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 all decks.
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.
