AKA antimeta.card. Blister here is NOT GB1, woot. When used to guard, for the whole turn, the opponent's Vanguard cannot re-stand.
 
Obviously supposed to be here to troll well-known re-standers such as Overlords and in today's meta...Phantom Blaster Abyss? Though I don't enjoy the thought of having to go -3 at least that late in the game to stave off death, but I guess compared to the cost of guarding 2 things it's a fair enough investment either way. If it's something pre-pay that takes away checks like the Ace and Victoplasma, you're +1 up, although a 31k column translates to a -4 for 2 to pass at least, so in the end it pretty much works out as turning 4 cards in your hand into perfect shields for a turn, counteracting the minus the opponent incurrs. Unless you Perfect Guard the attack and throw this in tokenly, in which case it's the cheaper play I guess.
 
Blister is a nice counter-card but it's really not an entirely reliable answer owing to how deceptively expensive he appears at first glance. And it forces 10k+ attacking G2s for columns but okay.
 
2.5/5

Well, another Grade 1 unit that has a on-call to G circle ability.
 
When placed on G from hand, the opponent's Vanguard cannot stand up that turn.
 
That...  That's not bad, the second most annoying and dangerous Vanguards are the ones that can restand.
 
While this shuts down anything Overlord, Legion-Revengers, Cat Butler and the restanding Stride units, is it really worth a spot in your deck?
 
...Yeah, yeah it is, even if you go against units that don't restand, I'd still say run it, because you never know what your opponent is running.
 
I'd try one or two for this one.  It's pretty good in a Megacolony deck.  And, besides, how often do you see stuff that stops restanding on defense?
