Golden Beast, Sleimy Flare
The painfully obvious Gurguit support. Sleimy Flare, when used as a G Guardian, sends one of your rear-guards to the bottom of the deck, then you look at the top 5 cards of your deck, call 2 units with different Grades among them to guardian circle, then shuffle the deck.
So re-capping, the most optimal shield you can generate is 15k (a Grade 0 + a 1 or 2). This comes at a -1 cost to you, usually something called to the board with 5k shield (or if you're lucky a spare Grade 3 kicking about), so essentially this is generating a net gain of 10k shield average. Not impressive initially as it only serves to be spammed with Gurguit's Stride skill and thus fuel Unite. Possibly empty a board for Liberators as well, but what it's use is for is pretty obvious.
Only if you need the extra 5k shield this nets over your other G Guardian. Or you need Unite.

[Golden Beast, Sleimy Flare]

This is a pretty nice G-Guard. He has the potential to exceed even Scryew in shield value. His cost is a boon and a curse though:

+You shove a unit to the bottom of the deck, so that on your next turn, you're not calling units over units to get Unite actives

-Bind Time Dragon, Chronoscommand Revolution, or anything that can ensure a full board wipe means you can't pay for the cost of Sleimy Flare. You can still use Sleimy against Brawlers though because, at that point, it's either spin a unit to the bottom or watch it get punched in the face when the battle resolves.

Depending if Golds get more Unite skills that activate on the guardian circle, Sleimy could be even stronger, but he's still legit in his own right.
