Borderlands 2 Siren/Maya Build

For some reason I have seen very few people playing as the Siren in Borderlands 2. I am not really sure why this is, so if you know please enlighten me. What I do know is the Siren in Borderlands 2 is a damage machine, with very strong AOE capabilities. The following build is the one I am currently using, and absolutely loving it right now.

This build is for those people who like to blow sh*t up, and excuse my unprofessionalism, but I really do not have another way to explain this build. With this build you will be able to phaselock every 10.6 seconds, and doing so will vacuum everyone together for a group hug, and cause a big boom, of electrically corrosive slag. While Blight Phoenix and Chain Reaction combo to hit multiple targets with your equipped weapons. So get a fast firing elemental weapon of you choice and watch the bodies hit the floor. (Morbid I know, but nevertheless its fun) As always, I am open to suggestions, please leave comments, questions and criticisms below.
