Amara "Nova" build help/ideas

So, I have been running a melee build with the Facepuncher and Unleast the Dragon artifact and a brawler ward shield; the COM is the one with the 31% cooldown rate increase. Usually the one use for phasezerking. I ran across a shield that has an anointment of “While Amara phasegrasps an enemy she continuously (?) emits Novas for 3299 damage.” I am paraphrasing but you get the idea.

What I wanted to try was make a “Nova” type build that really took advantage of that anointment as it seems pretty cool. I’m not very good with creating synergistic builds and unfortunate;ly don’t have it right here in front of me but the majority of the points went into the red tree to increase elemental damage and take the skill that each enemy killed creates a nova when they die. I also went down the blue tree just far enough to get stillness of mind and was using soulfire and phasegrasp. I know this isn’t a lot of information to go on but if you were gonna try and take advantage of that shield, let’s say for mobbing, I don’t think it would be great for bosses. What would your suggestions be? (Actually doing this at work, so I gotta be sly … Hence the sloppy post and lack of information).

Thanks for any insight!!

that is frozen heart-face puncher build. the nova anointed on frozen heart procs cryo novas freezing enemies, so you deal times 3 with your face puncher.
