I thought things were getting a bit dull so I'd put up some of my favourite guard techniques from my own game.
The first picture is the standard way I use my guard, which I based off Margarida, although I do some things differently to him.
My right hand is in the collar. This allows me to do a few things:
1) Stop him putting his head on my hips to pass
2) Keeps him wary of my chokes
3) Gives me a good handle to control his posture.
My left hand is controlling his sleeve to:
1) Stop him controlling both of my legs
2) Takes away one of his arms for passing.
The first sequence has me pulling my opponent forward. From here I can underhook the arm, move my body underneath his and sweep him to my left. Make sure with this position that you keep pulling the guy forward really hard with the hand controlling his belt so he has to post with his hand. You can also go to the back quite easily from this position as well as do a whole bunch of other sweeps.

The next sequence is one of my favourite submissions from here. When the guy posts after I pull him forward, I underhook his arm and apply a cutting armlock.

I haven't really used that armlock before. Does it work as well in no-gi?

It works very well with no-gi. I think it was in the 1998 ADCC that one of the japanese fighters (Caol Uno maybe) beat a BJJ black belt in something like 15 seconds with this armbar. I've forgotten the name of the BJJ guy, he's fought in the UFC and trains with Tito.

I've heard that referred to as an "arm crush".
I've met my maker with that on several occasions.

Good stuff. I use that guard a little bit.

This next sequence is one I use a lot to get the butterfly sweep. After I pull the guy forward, he pulls back and postures up. I grab his wrist with my right hand, join my left shoulder to his body and pull him in tight with my left hand then sweep him to my right.

Arm crush is one of my absolute favorite techniques too.
