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
Power: 10000
Grade 3
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 Heal Trigger.

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 due.

Rating: 3/5
Art: 4/5
Next Time: More out-of-the-box cards...maybe...?

Go Rogue...Go Pro!
...and DON'T be a Sackboy!!!

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 thing. 
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 “cards-that-sound-good-on-paper-but-don't-hold-up-compared-to-existing-things” 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.
