Flame Wing Steel Beast, Denial Griffin
Call me biased, but this card is king. Denial Griffin Counterblasts 1 when used to defend in order to retire the attacking rear-guard. He's the best G Guardian. I'm sorry, but when you have a unit who only needs himself to stave off rear-guards, unlike every other one that may need additional help, then you know this guy's good.
What I enjoy most of all about this card is that he's a reactive retire. Before, Kagero's best was preemptively getting rid of problems, and that's not really useful when they can be soft countered by powering up the few that matter or just grabbing so much advantage back that enemy decks don't give a shit. Now, you only need to snipe the ones that matter, and anything really problematic like Silent Tom can be checked with this. It doesn't matter how strong the column is, you just drop this, and the attack is done. Unless the attacker has Resist.
Staple for every Kagero build.

I love this card. I hate this card. Until the other control decks get the amount interaction with the opponent on their turn as potent as Griffin and Defeat Flare, Kagero has an edge over all of them.

Because Denial Griffin kills the attacking unit, you don't actually have to drop the adequate amount of guard if the rearguard column was forcing more than 15k shield. Bananas. 

If the opponent's gambit on their turn was dependent on them having a field, like Olyvia for example, you can use Denial Griffin in conjunction with Dragon Knight, Sadegh to neuter it or shut it down completely. Not everybody has Resist Grade 2's to shrug off Denial Griffin, and people are gonna be more pressed to run them now.

Kill a Nova unit that was just gonna keep restanding. Kill Pale Moon units before they can duck back into the soul. Kill mermaids before they can be bounced to hand. Kill 'em all!
