Most vote decks will use Presence, and thus also use Voter Captivation for blood gain. In fact, it is rare to see vote decks that don't use Presence in some capacity. And if you are using Presence, then Guru doesn't really add much to what is already available. Better to use Voter Caps instead in most cases.

The fact that this card is also limited to just Sabbat vampires makes it even less likely to see play.
Lasombra are capable voters, and could see some use from this card. In my own experience however, enough of the Lasombra voters have Presence, making Guru rather redundant. Other Sabbat clans could find a use for this card however. Both !Ventrue and Tzimisce have some good titled vampires without any Presence.

Guru isn't exactly a bad card. Once again however, Perfectionist does everything that this card does, with less restrictions.
