Deimos arcana actually buffed Wise Razor. They shifted the default combos order and (undocumented) made the hand flipping animation cancelable. It feels a lot more fluid now and doesn't have that gross downtime.
There's a workaround. Seems the bug is that the drill doesn't want to acknowledge the veins, they're there though. Seems like going into spoiler mode and returning to your frame lets it see what's around you.
