|None. Self-made deck here.|

Sometimes we all need to take a moment and engage in some mindfulness.
Feel the breeze.
Play energy barrier.
Take a walk.
Lay in the sun.
Put down a plasma pistol.
Get punched in the face.
Find purpose. Maybe twice.
Become a human blender and destroy the villain!
Or something along those lines. I've been noodling over repurpose decks with Psylocke like VillainTheory mentioned on his podcast and some others:
I've landed in a similar place as others, but one thing that I've changed is including Plasma Pistol. This is a basic tech card, and unlike Energy Barrier, you can get a use out of it before you absorb it for pink butterfly mind magic (also the name of Psylocke's Erasure cover band). I find 2 cost is a good return on investment for Repurpose, and sometimes it's hard to justify playing Forcefield Generator.
I'm also revisiting the much-reviled Tenacity, which could make her turns even bigger if you can get the space to set it up.
Events: Her signature events are great! The real MVP here is Repurpose readies you and increases your stats, and What Doesn't Kill Me is a way we can ready for one last 7 damage or 7 thwart swing. We want to take damage so we can play the card, and luckily Psylocke's Psi-Katana can play the kicker. I find I often want to have one on Psi-Knife and one on Psi-Katana so we can pay fist but also flip to knife if we need to thwart.
Supports: Defensive Training shuffles those sweet Repurpose cards back in your deck for Training Regimen to fetch for you when you want them. The Night Nurse keeps stun and confuse away so you don't need to waste any basic activations clearing it.
Upgrades: Energy Barrier and Plasma Pistol keep you up and swinging with Repurpose, and Side Holster lets you play Plasma Pistol without discarding it or having an awkward swing without both Psi-Katana's up. Tenacity isn't something everyone loves, but I feel with Psylocke's cash money, it's a card you can play if you intend to stay down, and make use of it on big repurpose turns. Like What Doesn't Kill Me, you can easily pay the kicker for it with your Psi-Katanas.
So don't forget to treat yourself to a walk. Take your time. Get ready. And go show the villain what a psionic practicing mindfulness can do.
