Crit > Power for Deception PvP?

So I got lucky on the PvP bags and got the Stalker Champaion Head to replace my old Level $0 oragne PvP head...however I notices that I traded a lot of power for crit.

In fact my overall damage went DOWN though my crit and surge went up.

Does Deception favor Crit over power for PvP?

Crit/surge = burst. Its not uncommon to kill someone with recklessness/trinket/charge - maul - stun - vs - shock - discharge - assassinate if your physical abilities crit.

Deception favors crit over any other stat (besides willpower). Discharge and shock both deal 50% extra crit damage, plus any surge bonus, and the amount of burst you can get is very high.

Most of the stalker gear has accuracy and power, some with crit, surge on the helmet is an exception.

I'm stacking Crit>Surge>Accuracy until I know what the soft/hard cap for crit is.
