Until now I have only used historical deployments.
In two games I tried a probably uncommon approach for the Greek player:
In turn 2 I ignored the cavalry and moved and express moved as many units as possible into the Persian right (priority) and left (as much as is left) centre, imposing a morale -1 modifier on the Persians.
In turn 3 I concentrated my attacks on the archers in the Persian left rear, causing panics and possibly getting rid of the enemy leader.
The Greeks won both battles but I did not have time to tally the final scores, so I don't know if it was a game victory, too.

I'll try this move next time we play to see what happens.

Maybe you'll find the flaw in my plan, e.g. a good way for the Persian to use the now free cavalry.

P.S.: I added a link to this thread to the wiki page "Lost Battles".
