Those purp tentacle cleavers have chunked me far too often with V trying to orchestrate the Summon Squad. I got halfway through DMD, maybe return for clean up sometime after Sekiro.
This mode’s biggest challenge has always been how enemies (and bosses) enter their own kind of Devil Trigger mode after a certain amount of time; beyond greater attack/defense they become extremely poised and more difficult to interrupt, knock down. The main Nelo Angelo knights get ridiculous in this state. Furies not as much but still messy.
