    Revengers: Vortimer, Duke, and Chromejailer

    Black Horse Revenger, Vortimer
    "In his younger days, he foolishly thought fighting alone was the answer."
    Grade 1/6000 POW/5000 Shield
    Human/Shadow Paladin/United Sanctuary
    [AUTO][Drop Zone]:[Soul Blast (1 "Revenger")]: When this card is placed in the Drop Zone by the skill of a 《Shadow Paladin》, you may pay the cost. If you do, choose up to two cards from your damage zone, and turn them face up.

    Gallant Revenger, Dragon Duke
    "The legend transcending time now fights with the Black Knights of revolution."
    Grade 3/11000 POW/0 Shield
    Abyss Dragon/Shadow Paladin/United Sanctuary
    [AUTO](VC) Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you have four or more damage):[Counterblast(1) & Choose two of your rearguards with "Revenger" in its card name, and retire them] At the end of the battle that this unit attacked, you may pay the cost. If you do, select 2 of your «Shadow Paladin» rearguards and [Stand] them. Those selected units get [Power]+3000 until end of turn.
    [AUTO](VC):[Counter Blast (2)] When a Grade 1 «Shadow Paladin» is placed into your Drop Zone from the Rearguard circle, you may pay the cost. If you do, call it to a rearguard circle.
    [CONT](VC/RC): Lord (If you have a unit without a same clan as this unit, this unit cannot attack)

    Conviction Revenger, Judge Chromejailer
    "Do not waste your breath begging for mercy. The evidence speaks: 'You are Guilty'."
    Grade 3/11000 POW/0 Shield
    Abyss Dragon/Shadow Paladin/United Sanctuary
    [AUTO] (VC) Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you have four or more damage):[Counterblast(1) & Choose a card named "Conviction Revenger, Judge Chromejailer" from your hand, discard it, and retire two of your your «Shadow Paladin» rearguards] When this unit attacks, you may pay the cost. If you do: retire 2 of your opponent's rearguards and choose one of your opponent's vanguard, and that unit gets [Power]-5000 until end of turn.
    [CONT](VC): When this unit attacks, your opponent's units cannot intercept.
    [CONT](VC/RC): Lord (If you have a unit without a same clan as this unit, this unit cannot attack)

    Reasoning and Logic:
    Because the last G1 option of Revengers is either Dark Bond which requires a rework of your deck with two Forerunners or a shitty 10k/11k booster or even worse a cb1 +1 clone. And the only deck people are willing to play consistently without fail is Raging Form... I thought maybe a Lemonade was what Shadow Paladins in general would like for starters, it even encourages some to play Triple Dark Armor in Phantom Blaster decks, since they'd be able to easily reuse the Persona Blast, which effectively makes Phantom Blaster Overlord, y'know... not dead or half baked.

    Duke is built to act like a Navalgazer for Shadow Paladins without going down the usual Critical +1 or extra power to self or another self-stander. Which is basically combining Vortimer's morals(fighting alongside his comrades and helping people) with the Shadow Paladin way(retiring units for power), so it merges into sacrificing others for the sake of others but not necessarily letting everyone die. The secondary effect is to encourage Shadow Paladins to actually run Stand Triggers to combo. He would kill his own booster and a booster behind one of the other front row units, then revive the booster behind the other rearguard, and a stand trigger allows a fourth column swing.

    Chromejailer is literally another deck entirely and functions with the same "Persona" means of Raging Form, but does different things. It fits his old lore of indiscriminately finding everyone guilty of breaking the law by immediately "convicting" two units before they can even speak for themselves, and then instilling fear into the opposing vanguard. All while convicting two Shadow Paladins too. Just because the Revengers are only trying to stop the invaders doesn't mean he overlooks the stuff they did do in their pasts.

    I actually can't truly say they feel balanced. Duke feels like he truly would work up the encouragement for Shadow players to play Stand triggers, but I can't say that for sure. Chromejailer seems nice enough, I think. And by my standards, Vortimer looks fine. I just did these off the top of my head from talking with a friend about the black chain forces joining the Revengers from Gold Paladins, and Vortimer would go with them.
