What's Up, you guys?! It's Friday, so time to wrap up
this Theoretical Week with another card that I feel
pretty iffy about...
Blade Wing, Reijy
Clan: Dark Irregulars
Race: Human...wait really???
[CONT](VC):If the number of źDark Irregulars╗ in your
soul is fifteen or more, this unit gets [Critical]+2.
[AUTO]:When this unit is placed on (VC), choose one of
your źDark Irregulars╗ rear-guards, search your deck for
up to three cards with the same name as that card, put
them into your soul, and shuffle your deck.
...Reijy is definitely a unique card as it's the only
Dark Irregular card currecntly out that gains a Critical
and one of the only cards in the game that gain 2
Critical along with Armor Break Dragon. His stipulations
are pretty tricky though seeing how you have to,
basically, keep a 10,000 Power Vagnuard on the field
long enough to get to 15 cards in the Soul. It is a VERY
hard thing to do seeing how the average game for Dark
Irregulars is roughly 10-12 cards, but 15 can be a bit
pushing it but worth it if you can get to it seeing how
you can basically keep an opponent's Limit Break at bay
by keeping them at 3 Damage until you get to 15 Soul and
can basically kill them in one shot if they don't get a
The other effect that Reijy has is that when you ride
into him, you can select one of your rear-guards and put
as many copies of that card as you like from your deck
into the Soul. Obviously, this was made to combine with
the Witching Hour cards from Set 7 and will also combine
really well with Dimensional Creeper from Set 12, so
that way, it'll either power up the Witching Hours or
get you even closer to that necessary 15 Soul.
In any case, Reijy isn't the best Dark Irregulars
boss, as that honor belongs to Amon, but it's still a
very interesting card that does deserve credit where
Next Time: More out-of-the-box cards...maybe...?
Go Rogue...Go Pro!

Blade Wing Reijy
Closing this week is a card I personally don't think is
too bad, but is definitely a newb trap, Blade Wing Reijy.
When he amasses 15 soul, he gains an extra 2 Critical.
In any other deck, this would be impossible, but luckily
his clan, Dark Irregulars, soulcharges like a mad
When I use this deck, I've actually gotten Reijy live by
turn 4 quite often, ready to rip the opponent a new one.
He works excellently to counter Limit Break decks since
he can end the opponent on 3 damage, maybe 2 if you're
Critical heavy. You just swing with him at the Vanguard
and attack the opponent's Rear-Guards with your own to
make the opponent -4 at least every turn, stagnating
their advantage and sealing Heals, since you're going to
be on more damage most of the time.
However, he does badly need power in order to make his
Critical relevant, otherwise he's easy to deal with.
That's where his OTHER skill comes in. When you ride
him, you pick a rear-guard, and send all copies of it
from the deck to the soul. Now, it just so happens
there's a Grade 1 called Demon Bike of the Witching
Hour, which gains 2000 power for every Bike in the soul.
You pick the Bike, send the rest into the soul, and with
3 Bikes, combined with its natural 6000 power, it
becomes a 12k booster every turn, allowing Reijy to
swing for 22k, forcing a Perfect Guard or at least 20k
shield on attack. If you screw up and one of the Bikes
become damaged or drawn, you should be okay with a 20k
column as long as the opponent is using a 10k Vanguard.
He's lethal, but sometimes has consistency issues. He
does need a deck entirely dedicated to him to do well;
he can't be teched anywhere. I like him, but I know that
he isn't for people who value consistency over rewards.
Finishing out this week of
is a card that, like Eradicator, Gauntlet Buster Dragon,
I am surprised to see on this list. The card I speak of
is Blade Wing Reijy. In a deck by himself as with
EGBD he shines…which in itself is insanely ironic as
he’s pure darkness. With cards that benefit from having
multiple copies of themselves into the soul this guy
helps make that happen if one copy is in the rear guard.
Considering how much and fast the Dark Irregulars can
soul charge he has no problem getting +2 bonus criticals.
What probably dissuades a lot of people is he isn’t a
diehard powerhouse in terms of powering himself up which
this is ok if you use effects and boost him right. In
his own themed deck he’s truly a nightmare.
5/5 in his own themed deck
3.5/5 if he’s support.
