If you're talking about beginner's packs, I believe they also include Gowen's answer to Folrart Guardian - Mercenary. Mercenary is another one of those units just about every gowen player brings just like how Guardian is a unit just about every Refess player brings (unless they are playing SK / EM).

Skip, use "The higher the fee"
Kurina, use "The higher the fee"
By turn 5, you will have a mercenary with 50 HP 70 AT 10 DF 3 AGI 2 RNG sitting behind Kurina or Spores. One more "The higher the fee" and you can one shot guardians regardless of what they do to buff it.
I realize Mercenary does not come with the starter pack, but neither does Guardian.

It actually does a pretty good job of stopping rush, short of Shrine Knights or Eternal Morning (The top tier rush file for 3 sets in a row now?). In that respect, I think SK and EM are just too imbalanced thanks to their ability to grow their attack to ridiculous amounts with no SP investment whatsoever.
