They may be middling to low 4th tier but they're backed by extraordinary flavour and if actually used per their MO in game, are still a threat as long as you've not got powergaming in play. I'm sure they do crumple like dust-bunnies if used head on but that's really not their point.

Redo them if you like but please, emphasise the cult/exemplar of bastardry aspects over straight up combat potential.
To that I'd have to argue that of course you wouldn't emphasize combat with other disciples. I know the two that came before in my homebrew are slightly martial leaning, but that's because they are a monk class and a swashbuckler-ish class. But BEL IS WAR!!!! BLOOD AND THUNDER!!!! VICTORY AT SEA!!!

My main idea for the others is to post them as is in the BoVD, with a few tweaks beforehand if I can think of anything, and then the homebrew community, which I guess I now am a part of having homebrewed six things now, can work to better them.

Would you guys be on board?
