Supreme Heavenly Emperor Dragon, Advance Guard Dragon

The annoying thing about Fighter's Collection Packs is that you have to pick and choose so you don't get short reviews, because sadly everything is being touted as equal but in reality aren't. So here are the Top 4 G-Guardians starting us off. For my main clan of course, fuck the rest of 'em. All the G-Guardians this set are GB1 restricted: when you defend with Advance Guard, Soulblast 1 and flip a G-Guardian face-up to retire a rested Grade 1 or below rear-guard.

Some question what this is even here for since Denial Griffin can stop almost any attack on his own by retiring the attacker, but that's not it. Advance Guard has a completely different purpose: it frees up Counterblasts to use on another gambit during your next turn (usually by murdering the attacker for cheap) by retiring the attacker's BOOSTER, so that the 15k shield is usually enough, even accounting for triggers. Or you can troll starters that need to boost to proc like Kabutron or something.

A 1-of that's only really there to check certain front-row Resist or destroy starters that haven't vanished yet, but it's not bad. It's held back by the GB1 requirement but it's functional.

3/5

Oh boy, Fighters Collection! That special time of year where everybody gets support. Some good, others, well... less good. This year we have a real treat, with all clans getting heal triggers with abilities, G-Guardians that cost twice as much to use, and overblown GB8 toys. So let's start with some of the G-Guardians and see what we get, eh?
 
Kagerō's new G-Guard falls in the vein of their old ones, in that it makes things explode. Unlike Denial Griffin or Defeat Flare, though, Advance Guard costs WAY too much for what he can do. Retiring only 1 unit isn't what's bad, it's that what you can retire is so narrow, and the cost is way too high. And i doubt Kagerō players are desperate enough for GB8 that they'd resort to this. Stick to Laserchicken for now, kids. Set 11 will give you more reasonable stuff
 
1.5/5
