Due to the changes, I need you to make note that her demon magic, like Possessive Magic as a whole, provides applications centred around her thematic of misery, grief, depression, melancholy, etc.. That being said, don't forget to adjust her demon racial skill sheets.Hunger Dejection:
It's a very large boost, but I'm fine with it considering the understanding that it's a result of her energy pools and how they interact together, as well as the fact that her shikai unlike most others actually has weaknesses, and quite a few to them as a counterbalancing effect to how powerful it can empower her.Gluttony of Grief:
Make note of what people can do to these monsters; the energy blob-teeth monsters can't just go around eating energy without vulnerability. What can people do to dispel their manifestation or combat these things so that they don't have to worry about it being a variable on the battlefield?Misery of Isolation:
I'd say if she uses this ability in its offensive properties, specifically to sever their ties from their abilities or potentially have the energy-loss rebound incapacitate them, while that's obviously dependent on the individual strength of her opponent, this usage more than once in a post is a bit much. Especially since if she can land it, she can repeat it easily after they regain their abilities. I need this ability to make note that scaling with the enemy's own power, something on that level can take up an enormous amount of energy from Saiko, and that with that sort of usage this ability can only be used once per post, not twice. Static World:
If you could illustrate more examples or give more explanation to how this ability operates, it'd be easier to understand Static World. In its current state, from my understanding it's an ability with essentially unlimited and undefined application, and that she can just alter and manipulate reality around her freely in any sense and application so long as she had the energy to sustain these interactions--and that's a really broad ability without much described levels of potency or central thematic linking to the rest of her abilities and embodiment.Derealized Form:
It'd be good to note that considering the massive energy expenditures of her bankai, from my understanding her conscience and existence now being directly linked to her energy as she doesn't actually have much of a corporeal form, one of the methods to defeat or kill her is to exhaust her energy or take it all up. That said, because her bankai takes up energy, even if her mind is going haywire it'd be wise that she keeps track of how long she's been in bankai and how frivolously she's using her abilities, since her energy isn't infinite, and there's even the possibility that she just commits suicide from using up way too much energy that she can't even sustain her form anymore.Detachment of Her Body:
For an ability on this magnitude, I'd say 1-2 uses in actual combat are a much fairer limitation, 2-4 pushing it and giving her negative effects. Beyond that, considering how freely she can use this ability, on the level of body manipulation of the highest degree, it becomes absurdly broken. I'd say even if she goes into overdrive and uses this ability 2-4 times, she needs to maintain her usual form for at least a post or two depending on how drastically she used this ability. That and, naturally, this would consume a considerable amount of energy.Shredding Distortion:
This ability has the same issues as Static World, in that the applications are so vague, in its current state to my understanding it can do pretty much just anything, just that there's a tinge of inclination to use it to destabilise an opponent with her energy. Otherwise, it can kind of arbitrarily do anything, like turning a cero into water. I need more explanation on what principles this ability operates or at least a central connecting thematic to what sorts of things it can do.
All things taken into consideration, I personally believe with all the threads and progressions Saiko's taken since her creation as a 1-3, it makes sense that Saiko should have Master Pain Endurance. This character was built for abuse and constantly contested with characters way beyond her level, being battered and tossed around fairly often before her revamp. She's been nonstop beaten down, so I do believe it would be appropriate to give her Master in this area.
I think the reverse should apply to her Focus. A lot of Saiko's abilities and manner of operation relies largely on her concentration, maintaining focus and keeping her cool to implement her powers and be in sustained combat; however, due to the nature of her Shikai and Bankai, her Focus goes down. So, I'd say in base, she could also have Master in Focus, but in Shikai this drops down to Elite, and in Bankai it drops down to Advanced because of the listed out weaknesses, her loss of concentration, anxiety, multi-track thought, etc..

- Comments/Notes: I've went back and gone through all eleven threads Saiko's had since her revamp, and she didn't really have any upgrades between the two applications. So, I do agree with the massive tier jump, and she's been in quite a bit of conflict thereafter to justify sustenance of her tier, but I don't believe that it necessitates and demands her 0-2 bankai. I think in her current state and the previous activity she's outputted--especially in consideration of her never having used bankai even up until now--that it's more appropriate if she's kept at tier 0-3 all around.
Tier: When fixed up, 0-3.
