I was using Minfilia with GSB and SSB, but needed more damage so swapped her for Cid. He has his imperil SSB, but didn't use it, focusing on Burnt Offering instead. We kept going past 30 seconds so he ended up entrusting to Papalymo so he could Leylines before TGM ended, allowing him and Alph to speed cast at the end. Alph and Cid died near the end, but Papa's AOSB and Yda's fists finished the fight.
And of course, when I look at the team now I realise Papa should have used Chain Firaja instead of Meltdown. Go team forgetful!
LD Papalymo: R3 Protectga/R4 Meltdown; SSB2/USB/AOSB; Gathering Storm; 2x fire boost, moderate fire/earth resist
LD Yda: R4 Fires Within/R4 Ironfist Fire; USB; No Chicken Wuss; 2x fire boost, moderate fire/earth resist
LD Y'shtola: R3 Shellga/R4 Curada; BSB; MM; moderate fire/earth resist
LD Cid: R4 Burnt Offering/R4 Entrust; No SB; Wings Unfurled; 2x fire boost, major fire resist
LD Alphinaud: R2 Hastega/R4 Lunar Ifrit; SSB; DMT; 2x fire boost, moderate fire/wind resist
Magicite: Phoenix (Spell Ward 8, Health Boon 8), Madeen (Health Boon 8, Fast Act 10), Famfrit (Blade Ward 8, Health Boon 8), Madeen (Attack Boon 20 x2), King Bomb (Magic Boon 15)
Here's what I remember of the fight:
Papa Protectgas, then Meldowns into USB (at 10 seconds), more Meldowns, SSB at about 22 seconds, 1 more Meldown then AOSB
Yda uses Fires Within, 2 Ironfists, then USB. From there she does more of the same.
Y'shtola Shellgas, BSB, then Curadas. She uses BSB again before Tank Purge, then cmd2 which I think dualcasted, allowing us to survive the second. Then panic healing.
Cid uses Chain, then Offerings, Entrusting to Papa when he has two and a bit bars. Then more Offerings.
Alph Hastegas, SSBs, Ifrit, summons Phoenix at 10 seconds, refreshes the chain, then more Ifrit.
Had to dive Cid to get it.

39.86 sec clear
Alphinaud USB/LM2/Ace striker
Papalymo USB,SSB/LM2/Double cast black RM
Minfilia casts USB, then entrusts to Papalymo so he can cast hastega SSB and his own USB back to back. Minfilia then casts SSB for last stand as backup so Y'shtola can catch up on healing.
Alphinaud, Papalymo and Ysayle on dps duties. I used a mixed elemental team but I barely managed to win before Ultima timer hits. Sub 40 is ok for now.

Had no intention of trying the D??? since I needed Elarra to sub30s the 280. Then I finally looked through this:
Came back to try this with the buff to SB gauge generation with Stoneskin active. Mastered in 49.39 after hitting 99% on the first attempt. Biggest changes:
Alph: RM - Savior of Spira - Needed that extra summon damage because I also used BSB twice before casting USB2 for the burst in Phase 5.
Ysayle: R5 Chain Blizzaga/R4 Chain Blizzaja - Also pulled her LMR during previous LoTR. Max Crystal waters in everything but Power and Spirit, but that was mainly for Typhon.
Minfilia: Ended up pulling her BSB2 and LMR2 (maybe from Realm draw update?). LMR2 definitely helped in getting everything up and running quicker. BSB2 entry damage probably wasn't essential, but I did end up 1 turn away from dying to Ultima again so maybe it helped.
Main magicite the same. Sub magicites mostly different:
Syldra - Lvl10 earth dampen and lvl20 magic boon
Mateus - Lvl10 wind dampen and lvl8 Blade Ward
Madeen - lvl8 Health Boonx2
Coffee is for closers.

D??? mastered at 36s
LD Cid (no sb): Burnt Offering + entrust (machinist++) --> fire armor, fire+wind resist
LD Yda (usb): Burning Rush + Fires Within (monk++) --> fire fist, fire+earth resist
LD Potato (ssb2, aosb): C-ja + protectga (blm++) --> fire rod, fire+earth resist
LD Tola (bsb): curada + hastega (TGM) --> NA, fire+earth resist
LD Alp (ssb, bsb, lmr): dark valefor + shellga (MM) --> wind dagger, major fire resist
Magicites: Belias (dbl empower fire), madeen (dbl atk boon), syldra (dampen earth, FA), famfrit (dampen fire, spellward), phoenix (GDM)
Cid: rw, snipe, entrust to Papa for that sweet AOSB
Yda: self sustaining herself with FW until yshtola's bsb is up
Potato: protectga -> spam c-ja -> ssb for that acm -> c-ja x 2 -> aosb
Tola: hastega -> curaga spam -> bsb -> rinse and repeat
Alp: ssb -> shellga -> DV --> bsb cmd2 --> DV
Perhaps if i max hone that DV, and create an ironfist, i can shortered the clear time
but anyway, 36s is good enough for me for now

Sub30 with these relics:
Papalymo: USB+EnFire LMR
Fire rod artifact for Papalymo + Gathering Storm was the key.
No Magia points at all, can't be bothered with them.

Sub30 with these relics:
Are they fully dived?
Yeah all of them.
Minfilia's Imperil holy proc was important to boost her own damage as well as Y'sh's Holyja.
I used Bomb King as main Magicite hoping for lucky Short Fuses but they never happened.
Papalymo: Chain Firaja R5, Gathering Storm
Yda: Fires Within + Ironfist Fire, +30% damage RM
Y'Sh: Holyja+Hastega, DMT
Minfilia: Healing Smite+Protectga, +30% damage RM
Alphinaud: Lunar Ifrit+Shellga, MM
Fire+earth resist accessories on everyone except Alph (I used Odin's on him, but Firewind Shard is fine too).
Main Magicite: Bomb King (empower fire)
Sub: Mateus (HP+Spell Ward), Famfrit (Blade Ward+Dampen Fire), Madeen (HP+FA), Syldra (HP+Dampen Earth).
