i played Panchatantra + Gingerbread out of Geist with Sharpshooter, and it was actually pretty good, but i kept running into MU problems
that was before Sports Hopper and Reflection though. it could probably work. it could possibly even be the main breaker along with Vamadeva or some other AI breaker, but the cloud breakers really helped fill in the gaps
no in-faction tutor for Panchatantra made it kind of rough, but all that crazy Geist draw, it usually wasn't too bad
Deus X was always too expensive, and i almost always preferred Sharpshooter instead.
