So I have been playing a lot of memes lately and thought I would share the power Rev builds that can be somewhat playable.
Power Renegade Roamer http://gw2skills.net/editor/?PmwAweZldQMMHyj1QdsHij9RksAigl+067G-zZIPlMFC9KCyXB0xEwDDA
Shiro/Jalis Renegade is an old meme build that is actually quite decent in the current meta due to some of the balance changes being favorable to Renegade traits, namely Vigor on Retribution. Righteous rebel allows you to flat out ignore condition stacks if they aren't large enough. Using Jalis Stability road on point fights is your best friend. Axe4+Sword2 is a surprisingly strong damage combo. You also gain a crapload of boons when you break out of a CC now due to the Renegade reversal trait reworks. Maintains near permanent Vigor. Overall this is probably the best Power Rev build in the game atm ( This isn't saying much as Condition mallyx is still generally Meta ) due to its high crit damage, damage reduction mods, and ability to counter most condi builds 1v1.
The main thing to get used to is making sure you are constantly swapping legends and proccing charged mists. To ensure you always proc CM, do the following just before you legend swap based on your energy if you have over 10:
10~20: Heroic command / F2 ( OPTIMAL: Always try to aim for using F1 to swap and proc CM for free might )
20~30: Orders from Above / F4
30~40: Both F2+F4
40~50: Riposting Shadows / ROTGD
50+: Stop being AFK.
^takes practice but when you get used to it you should have few if any energy problems.

So this is really just the old Meta Rev with minimal changes. It's not nearly as good as it used to be, but is still very playable and can cheese out some decent burst damage with the ample quickness uptime.
Few ways to save energy and play it safe:
-Consider using Shiros f2 for the lifesteal buff after porting in instead of Impossible odds in case you suspect you may need to use riposting shadows. This is probably the biggest adjustment to the flow of the build due to RS being overnerfed.
-Save bursts for when you have quickness
-Still pretty slippery if you know what you are doing
-If you have a support duo, this build is potentially better than the Power Renegade build above
Playable fun Memes:
Shield Bunker Jalis http://gw2skills.net/editor/?PmwAw6ZlpQHMLyhdRNMM6hJSfsCKgl+le7H-z5gfKZKE6VEkvCIhJgzGA
This is a fun Jalis/Glint build that is largely for sitting on a point and not dying. Lots of blocks/evades. Three condi Clears + infuse light and a lot of sustain. Deals just enough damage to be annoying. Can 1v1 builds that can't keep up with the battle of attrition. Can also give your team a lot of stability during teamfights.
Spirit Bunker Jalis http://gw2skills.net/editor/?PmwAweZltQHsNyhpRNsM6hNSfMDKgl+067H-z5gfKZKE6VE0tEIfFgAHA
Very similar role as above, but slightly better in teamfights. Can potentially deal a lot of damage if you CC people with Axe 5 into a Kalla spirit combo ( Elite + Daring + Icerazor ). Also refer to Power Renegade roamer above for always proccing charged mists.
