I sometimes use a system of regular capitalisation across the phrase,

That makes it easier to remember where the capital letters go, though
it does reduce the entropy somewhat compared to random capitalisation.

After having told us that, the entropy added is zero. ;)
And you believed me? :)

Seriously: Your method adds very little, because there aren't many such
regular patterns.
Agreed. I have sixteen patterns, eight patterns and the equivalent
eight antipatterns, so they add just four bits.
