Unfortunately he has zero reset potential outside of landing a Focus attack in the corner....
From playing Cammy, there are really obviously fanciful combos that many higher level japanese cammies and Shoobedush are doing, for example Jumping K, X EX Cannon Strikes, cr hp, cr mk xx spiral arrow combo. Landing my reset a few times made me pretty happy and giddy and I guess that's the part I enjoy.
Looking at other characters, Guile for example is pretty limited, but I like to think I've carved out a pretty unique guile with combos and resets. Other characters I was considering? Sakura, again only has interesting stuff after ex shunpukyaku. Sure, you can follow that with shoryuken, FADC, Otoshi, but you're doing awful damage for 3+ bars. Abel and C Viper are similarly quite linear with their juggle style combos/resets. As a comparison, Guile's EX Flash Kick, FADC setups do surprisingly good damage, with increasing damage for harder resets.
So looks like I stick with cammy for a bit. I might through in Chun or Fei and see how it goes

Your game revolves around whiff punishing and short block strings and pokes. Tenshin is mediocore slow and bad range. The EX version is slightly better with the range and speed but you'll rately get away with it more than once because of the limited setup options.
Gief is definitely the character you're looking for based on your wants. But, honestly he is way too easy to play and win. I played him for a month and got bored with the lack of competition. Havent played him since.
Harle, the thing is, the characters with limited juggles, don't have proper movesets, or aren't adujusted to AE. Abel's MRoll is supposed to recover fast enough, so you can hit a jab or something after. His overhead sucks too. C.Viper, no overhead. Fei, no good poke, except for Cr.Hp. Fei needs standing jab, and Jumping Hard Kick. I think you'd enjoy using Guy though. He's not an extreme reset dude, but he has crazy run and hit tactics. It's like, flying in, mug you, and your position is reset, to do more craziness. Just check Combofiend on youtube, his Guy is just so fun to watch. You see all sorts of baits, throws, ins and outs of his run moves, it like Makoto, but more on mixups. He's just fun. Fei just really needs a buff. Maybe one, where he can land his full ultra in a combo from his standing moves. Anyways, whatever. I would pay for more characters. Spoiled by AE.
