Guard Leader of Sky and Water, Ioanes

This was the first one to have spoilers dropped and so the bar was going to be set pretty high, and lo and behold so many failed to live up to expectations. When GB1 is active and you defend with this, CB1 and flip a G-Guardian to give it 5k shield for every rear-guard you have, give all your rear-guards Resist until end of turn, and they can't be hit by attacks for the whole turn, I mean what the fuck.

Honestly I would have still used it owing to the fact it's a 40k shield for 1 CB if the field's full, the Dizmel effect on top of that is a pretty fucking sweet bonus. It's also not Wave dependent unlike the other G-Guardians for AqF so it's actually pretty easy to use. Downsides are pretty standard stuff, being GB1 restricted, but this is clearly meant to be for responding to a Vanguard attack and no Perfect Guard is handy, and in all honesty I think that goes a long way.
Ticks the right boxes and is meaty enough to run at more than 1 if G-Zone allows. Bully all the VMAX players.



NOW we're talking. Ioanes gives Aquas a neat out against shenanigans that would wipe their field (well, at least during battle phase) on top of being a rather chunky shield with a full field. Definitely a good way to beef up their defense and protect the formation. Unless you just nuke them all with Taiten or something
