Superstar Spotlight: Tajiri
« on: April 29, 2017, 08:38:13 AM »
Alright guys, I've noticed a few new people joining TCO. So I'll give a brief explanation how this segment works. Twice a week I will be posting superstars by request. So if you are stumped on a deck, can't make it work or just curious simply message myself or Drew with your request.
These are done in order of request. So if it takes a week or so please be patient. We promise we will get to your request as fast as possible.

Please keep those requests coming. Today's is another 'request' in Tajiri!!!!!


1.)  How viable is this superstar?
2.)  Is there a Superstar Specific Card that you'd like to spotlight? 
3.)  How have you built said superstar?  How did it work out?
4.)  How well does the Superstar fare in whichever format you built them in be it VC/VAA/NXT/VR/Non-Virtual
5.)  Final Thoughts on this Superstar?

AND

6.) Since this Superstar is a Legacy one (in that he was in the game before Virtual) can you elaborate a little on how Virtual has changed this Superstar?

Another thing I like is he is cheap to build most of his Kick build maneuver base is common and uncommons. If you flt like being generous giving away a Tajiri deck to a friend using kicks and Irish whips is pretty easy to do. Seems like to me it is a good beginner deck for people to learn. Also spell check like to change his name to fajita which makes me hungry for Mexican food so there is that.
