I'd love to hear what ya'll think of these. Also if anyone feels inclined to use these deck list or some variation of them please be my guest. If I can't be there at least I can live vicariously. =)

Best of luck to all attended and I'll see ya at the next major!

The only reason I don't like the Zi Mei is because I personally believe the Lifter is unnecessary, but hey, when my opinion will actually matter, I'll get back to ya.

The ZM option into Jin is neat. But I think I have a superior build! Which I will not divulge :p

Thanks for the feedback hatman.

In reality it might run better off 4 thrusters 0 lifter for consistency. I run a couple lifters because I like the overall speed and bonus on the lifter better than the thruster. However, the fact that thrusters block is better and it can be combo'd easier would indicate it be used over lifter and in greater number.

Some other benefits of running Lifter:
Discarding +4's to Ultimate Team (pizza team) is also always good too!
Less of a chance to get nailed by Cold and Indifferent.

That was actually my deck, only some cards were gutted for other decks. By far not the best build of her :p
