They released this card way too late, it should have been released with paladin white dragon.

Disagree. Including a ritual monster and ritual spell in a standard red eyes deck is even more slow and unreliable

Rituals now are bad, slow and costly, the only reason why CAs were played was because they search, recycle and gives you a free monster removal. With CA you didnt lost card advantage. In this case, you need. 1 ritual, 1 monster, dark paladin only to get one red eyes which do nothing. 3 cards for getting 1 2400 vanilla monster from your deck.

Except the ritual spell can search out a RE spell/trap

I could see this doing very well in standard DM format, but not the smaller format we use for Duel Links. When you have a 40 card deck, having the ability to search and special summon is powerful. When you have a 20 card deck... not so much.
with this card red eyes are tier 0
