It is rare to see Brujah Antitribu decks that do not include this popular vampire.

Note that she has all three clan disciplines, two of which are at superior level. She has a vote, which can often make the difference with whether a vote passes or not. She also has an inherent bleed of 2, easily modified to much higher amounts. Her discipline spread is perfect for bruise and bleed decks.

Of course, her special ability is practically negligible, so much so that I almost always forget she has it. If you have the chance to give a Sabbat vampire the title of Archbishop, how often would you choose someone who already has a vote? And frankly, causing your prey's Bishops to lose 1 blood each is really not that much of a pay-off, assuming they even have any Bishops in play.

Obtenebration is not generally a discipline we are likely to use, however if a deck is built around Sela, a few Obtenebration stealth cards such as Shroud of Night would be useful. Bronwen and Jacko also have Obtenebration, if you wanted to make that discipline more useful in a !Brujah deck.
