Flame Wing Steel Beast, Denial Griffin
[G guardian] (Usable when both fighters’ vanguards are grade 3 or greater, and the number of face up G guardians in your G zone is three or less)-Opponent Turn’s Guard Step-[Choose a card with “Heal” from your hand, and discard it] Call this card to your (GC) from face down. [AUTO]:[Counter Blast (1)] When this unit is placed on (GC), you may pay the cost. If you do, choose one of your opponent’s attacking rear-guards, and retire it.
Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale.
1 is bad. 3 is average. 5 is great.
I don’t see too many other G Guardians forcing into existence cards that are only run specifically to check this and basically nothing else. I did say this list was reserved for the best G Era cards that may have changed the meta in some way, and they don’t come more drastic than a shakeup of card design itself, which makes me a wee bit salty as I’m not a big believer in sporting chances. I just want to indulge in bullshit that belongs only to me! My Zeroth Dragon isn’t great, I’ve basically only got retiring and re-standing as the main, and only like one thing to counter Resist. Your Gancelots and ilk can piss off.
(For those of you who prefer things on the opposite ends of the spectrum, check this mess out for the Bottom 10 of the G Era)
What’s up, Rogue Squad?! I know I said that this is more than likely a Saikyo bias card, but I can still admit when a card is good, and Denial Griffin is probably one of the best G Guardians in the era (Heteround Dragon is definitely a contender alongside with Negrolily as she also sets up a pseudo Denial Griffin…but that’s just my bias ;-P). The fact that this card legit gets rid of a non-Resist attacker for a Counterblast is just great, especially in a clan that can easily refund your cost (namely Overlord or even Blademaster). Simply put, said you’re a Kagero player in Premium, then you’re playing this.

Next Time: The #1 card in the game…is also the #1 Dragon in the game.
Go Rogue…Go Pro…and Fight the Meta!!!
