I used to think I couldn't build a deck with out Scholar because of the draw and tutor advantage. However now every Expertise has a good draw engine except maybe Faith. Crime has Altair, Media has Bearer of Mixed Tidings, Order has Masyaf, even Gold with Assassin Recruits is nice. Lately I have been using a lot of Media since it seems pretty versatile and still has early income advantage.
Yeah, I'd say Crime and Media are my two most prevalent expertises. Media primarily for Political Patronage and the strong combo potentials (almost nothing beats a PP/Nico/Odai start), and crime because your removal cards double as scoring threats (e.g., Mario, Ezio Assassin, Stronghold...the list goes on and on), plus it has one of the best income boosters in the game in Forced Charity. I feel like I use Faith the least because you can make strong site-based decks without it (though Hagia is a beast), the agents are virtually worthless, and discard isn't as strong as it used to be with the nerfs to the income for some of the primary discard cards. I've got a deck for each possible color combination, though, so I think they all have their strengths.
