Wings of Recurrence, Blade Wing Reijy
 
So the intent is to soldier on with GBT07 while Bermuda Triangle support is still over the horizon, so let's get to it with Blade Wing Reijy: another one. On attack, if the original Blade Wing Reijy is in the soul, you can soulblast 15 cards to give him 15k power and 2 critical until end of battle. His second skill activates when he's in the soul and you have a Grade 3 Blade Wing Vanguard which isn't another Wings of Recurrence Reijy. You CB1 and discard 3 cards to ride him from the soul if your first Vanguard attack did not hit.
 
First skill: I'm not going to be the guy who complains about having to drop 15 soul to use because it's obviously meant to be a last-turn gambit. Having said that, that's a lot of cards to give up just to be met with a Perfect Guard to the face. His second skill is the selling point of the deck, and unfortunately, it's a bit iffy. If you're going to load fifteen cards in the soul, fair enough, you've got a good chance of getting him in the soul by accident, but overall, I'm not impressed by the fact that you have to start with your low-power Grade 3 before you can drop this.
 
Tibold and the other G Units requiring a 15 soul threshold is basically the only reason to run this at all. Without Stride, he's a shit first Ride. But eh, he's another source of soft advantage for Dark irregulars and the only re-standing option they have, so sure, why not.
 
3/5

More Reijy support, because Bushiroad likes diving into the past. The first effect demands a PG from the opponent. If you had to ride into New Reijy and not the other Blade Wings, just using this effect to force a PG isn't the most optimal, because you'd have to spend time building up your soul again. Considering the ease in which Blade Wings soulcharge now, it wouldn't be that hard though.

New Reijy's second effect is where all the hype is. DI has a restander now, and he presents the opponent with the same fork in the road as Eradicator, Dragonic Descendant does: no-guard your Vanguard and hope you don't check crits, or guard the first attack and have to deal with the restand+crit. They're forced to take the second option though if you're sitting on original Reijy with his own +2 crit, so you're gonna be forcing cards out of your opponent's hands regardless at that point.

Note: you have to be on a grade 3 to reride New Reijy from the soul. No reriding off of Tibold or Gilles de Rais.

All in all, you want to pay attention to your opponent. If you notice them not drive checking PGs, go in with New Reijy's effects. Otherwise, fall back on your Tibolds and Gilles de Rais. Having more than one finishing play is definitely a plus though.

3.5/5
