Good perks on trickster?

I've made a post beforehand on whether I should play trickster. I enjoy him enough to play more of him but not sure what perks are good to run on him. I heard monitor doesn't work well because of his lullaby but the only think I can think of are anti heal like sloppy, nurses or thana. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated 🙏

    Most basic slowdown build is his best build. But also I run save the best for last, since his ability is bad at the moment. But assuming if he stays in the current ptb form, which I think they will change something but I don't know what, but I doubt they will release him in this ptb form. But if he stays in his PTB form for the most part it would allow more varied build since he would much stronger. But I also think iron madden is good on him. But just the basic slowdown ruin, and pop. Or something like that for now.

    I wouldn't go for any perks that revolve around using a basic attack to proc the effect. You will be downing people mostly with your knives. I just love having hex: ruin, pop, and lethal pursuer. I do like discordance or bbq as the 4th perk but I would just recommend something sensory.

    Yeah, I understand :) It took me a while to get used to his aim.

    Here's what I ran on PTB, and it worked fairly well against a red rank two purple ranks, and a yellow/green rank even though I wasn't tryharding (so your average match in current matchmaking). Corrupt, No Way Out, Iron Maiden, and Infectious Fright. This is not the definitive Trickster build, but I think it's a good one. Corrupt because it's a slowdown that's mobility independent and funnels the survivors to you (something 110% appreciates). No Way Out because why not run what's going to be the endgame equivalent. Iron Maiden is there for the reload so that you waste less time and get back in the fight quicker. The detection and exposed is a nice side benefit. Infectious is there to capitalize on main event. On PTB, it's kind of the Oni effect. You want to milk your earned power. If you happen to earn it while downing a survivor, finding any survivor within 24 meters allows you to more consistently use it and snowball.

    Starstruck, agitation/lightborn, iron grasp, stbfl

    I play trickster for fun I leave the meta slowdowns to my other killers.

    This is what I usually try to run on him at rank 1. It’s the killer meta + bamboozle.

    I like bamboozle because without it, chasing main buildings / strong structures can be game throwing if the survivors are good and at 110 you don’t want to be dropping chases often.

    Hex: Ruin or Pop Goes The Weasel can definitely be good if you are most comfortable with builds that help with slowing down generator progression (I don't have Pop on him yet, but I have Ruin and its been helpful). I personally have been getting a lot of value out of I'm All Ears, as well as Sloppy Butcher, BBQ for locating/points. And while I do not yet have Lethal Persuer or Infectious Fright for Trickster yet, I can see them being worth a try, see if they fit your playstyle with him!

    The best perk on Trickster is to just play Huntress instead.

    I personally am running Thrilling Tremors, Agitation, Oppression, and Nurse's Calling.

    Oppression for some slowdown and info. Thrilling Tremors and Agitation to stay aggressive while he's carrying somebody. Nurse's to catch people healing if/when they try to recover after I spread damage.

    I used to run M&A before his lullaby got nerfed/fixed and Sloppy Butcher until I got Thrilling and Oppression.
