Hello everyone and welcome to my 246th analysis, this time featuring Patient Cyber.
Overview: Sitting at a great 3531 Speed tier, having the Tough trait and CD Activation as his deny method makes Patient Cyber a top class denier. He also has access to Nanovirus, which is one of the best Tortures in the game, coming with a built-in Positive Effect Block. Patient Cyber also has a single target Total Blind, which works wonders against things that can work around CD Activation such as Hookuai. A 0 Stamina buff removal might also come in handy in some tight situations, saving your team against team comps that try to deny with Stamina Drain and set up damage buffs as they do that.
Runes: 3 Speed
Mutant Rune options: Speed&Life
Endemic Pathogen is Patient Cyber's deny method, applying CD Activation to all enemies. Force Transduction is an AOE Nanovirus which is good for stacking damage and stopping buffs from being applied. Oftalphagous is a single target Total Blind, which is useful in situations where the target has ways around CD Activation or has Dodge Area. Lastly, Mutated Strain is a single target CD Activation to use against Dodge Area monsters, or to keep an enemy denied even longer. In any of the last 3 slots, Bacteriophages can be used, as it is a free buff removal with Nanovirus attached to it which can be used in emergencies where you have no Stamina but must use an attack.
3 Speed with Life Mutations is the standard on deniers.

Countering Patient Cyber: Zeighar effortlessly counters Patient Cyber, since he can use Mighty Servant to reset his CDs and get rid of Oftalphagous' Total Blind. However, be careful of Anticipation monsters that might be Patient Cyber's teammates. For more Counter options, check out this article.
