Be sure to include card text when asking question as reference.

Sheriff Austin's Quad-Runner
Pre-match Object
Cannot be blanked.
You start the game.
Your opponent's Fortitude Rating is considered -10 for playing Run-ins or cards with 'interfere' in the title. Your actions with "GM" in the text (without 'draw segment' text) are -10F and can only be reversed by Unique reversals.
Discard and overturn 1 less card for Can of Beer; when that card is Activated, the effect cannot be reversed.
F: 0     D: 0     Unique     Permanent

This card affects opponents fortitude rating instead of the card so opponent cannot use Fortitude Surge or Frankie Takes Hollywood to limit fortitude modification to his Manager Interferes.

"7. Roll out of the Ring was a lot more important in the early game than many people may realize "

Eric would agree it's still very important lol

Staple card! Just as important in the early game as the late game.

Pre-match phase ends once both players skip.
From the Rulebook:

"Pre-match Phase
After the Superstars are revealed, the Pre-match phase begins. This is the only time you can play Pre-match cards. They are played alternately, starting with the Superstar with the highest Superstar Value. You may not play more than 4 Pre-match cards but you can play less or none at all. The Pre-match phase ends when both players pass consecutively during step 4 of the
Pre-match phase.

The Pre-match Phase looks like this:
1. Play a Pre-match Feud
2. Play a Pre-match Stipulation
3. Play a Pre-match Manager
4. Play any remaining Pre-match cards.
5. Draw your Hand Size
6. End of Pre-match Phase."

Except it's now # of moves in the ring :)

Only when Drink or Fight is in your Ring.

Lol rusev day man thats way to good. No way that would pass playtesting.

What do you suggest should be done to make it less way to good?
Maybe they discard a card for a non-Chain maneuver instead of any maneuver.

It needs to be limited to a single use. If you can find a way to fit it, add the line "If this card is moved from your Ring by your effects or turned face up, put it in your Ring face down." That way, it can't come back into play.

The idea is it can come back into play. You're not going to be able to flip it back over until you get Turning Everything Upside Down into play. So you get the one shot and wait it until until you're F:6 and lower Fortitude, or as a reversal.

That idea is why it's way too good. Let's take all of Rusev's cards off the table except Bulgarian Brute and Happy Rusev Day (and Turning Everything Upside Down) for a second.


The Bulgarian Brute
Backstage Card
When you do not have 10+ greater Fortitude and your printed D: 5+ non-Multi maneuver is completely reversed from Arsenal during the first 3 cards while applying damage, before you would draw for Stun Value you may discard 2 cards; your maneuver is not reversed, he puts his reversal on the bottom of his Arsenal and continues to apply damage, he may reverse from Arsenal again as normal, and after all damage is applied end your turn.
Unique     RMS logo
VHS2

For the sake of argument, let's say Rusev is less than 10F ahead of his opponent. Rusev throws a Precision Kick, so hand only.

First, they attempt to reverse it from hand. That's one reversal gone.

Then, Happy Rusev Day. That's another card out of his hand.

Turning Everything Upside Down flips Happy Rusev Day.

Throw the Precision Kick again.

It gets reversed a second time.

Happy Rusev Day again, so now he's down 2 reversals and 2 other cards to your 1 Precision Kick, which of course you throw again.

Say it goes through on attempt 3.

Then they overturn a reversal in the top 3 cards.

Then you discard 2 to bottom his overturned reversal, and he keeps eating damage.

Then on your next turn, flip Happy Rusev Day up again, and we get to do that nonsense twice more with a new card.

--

tl;dr: I would ABSOLUTELY turtle with Rusev to get Turning Everything Upside Down into play, because once this thing gets to the lather, rinse, repeat stage, he's an NPE. (Just imagine how much worse this all would be before the Bulgarian Brute revision.)


---

Edit: If you're adamant about wanting this thing to be usable more than once, it has to have a more elaborate trigger than face down/face up. If it goes to the Backstage to take effect, and comes back to the Ring when you're #F behind your opponent, or something like that, I could see it being more balanced.

That’s a great write up and you’re complete correct with the combination with Bulgarian Brute being a nasty set of cards.

I’ll see what else I can fit onto the card to have a larger drawback. Happy Rusev Day everyone!

I’m not sure I’d use the 2nd effect of Charm, Harm, Disarm given the 1st effect changes Googles. Random discard of one vs. see two and choose the one that gets discarded, ya know? But it’s good to have the option in case the build is crashing aggro/discard.

That's the thing with the effect, it gives you an option. Especially if they have the first turn of the game.

Rules Forum / Re: Your Freaking Hero/Storyline vs Carlito Says
« on: June 25, 2018, 02:00:28 PM »
Because both German Suplex TB and Shoot Lock-up have conditional reversal restrictions, so those restrictions have to be actually active for Carlito to spot them. Angle's Uppercut doesn't say, "if you discard two cards, this is Chain," it's just Chain.

EDIT: It's just as annoying for me to have to answer umpteen questions about Carlito as it is for you guys to have to ask them and figure out how the damn thing works. I'm making it a personal project to get Carlito in a better spot for the next set of revisions.

I'm glad that this card will be changed. There's nothing in the phrasing in Carlito saying it's looking for the restriction to be active, it happens to ignore it and also reverses a non-unique maneuver that has that text.
It would need to be phrased along the lines of, "Reverse a non-unique maneuver with a reversal restriction from its own card text." to make sense with the current ruling.

You should add in undermine since you are raw. Id still like to see this as heat for the davari loop. Maybe a managed by divas to dig for shoot russian or managed by vince with two taunts a turn 1 open of shoot counter can be very deadly mid to late game. I know after playing you i have been really looking at them alot

Those Pre-match would take up a lot of space. I have to be pretty deliberate with what I keep due to my Backstage Specific card. Managed by the Divas would be the best option there as it takes less space.

While it's slightly counterproductive to your SSA, you're not a super count-on-discard deck, so Blindside Hook (I believe) also works with Tech In A Bottle and has the same concept-type effect.  I could see the one-and-one of Choke Hold TB and Blindside Hook being a thing.

The one-and-one idea with Blindside Hook is a good idea. Not a fan of letting my opponent draw a card after they discard 3. They would then draw 1 at the end of my turn and 1 for their turn. Sets me back a little bit.
I'm more count on discard than it appears. Those Blindside maneuvers are protected by nothing so they have to have almost no hand.

(*) Are for Backlash decks cards I keep after the effects of Initation into New Nexus.
Tech in a Bottle searches for Choke Hold that they cannot respond to thanks to Initation.
Usually I'll play Handicap match and see if they play Oldschool Wrestling Match, if they do not I would sometimes SummerSlam to play it right away or Cage Match. Another strategy I have with this deck is playing Mouth/Cash, but I can't recover because of Dubuque right? If I activate the venue as a reversal I can return it to Backlash with the ACE from Reinforcements from Harris & McGillcutty. This recovery card can be a life saver and they don't see it coming, unless they read this...
Everything else is personal preference/match-up. Reinforcements can get back Ready to Fight, Flurry of Finishers when needed. End of Pre-match effects are Backstage Autograph Session. Quick and simple.

The Superstar abilty on these guys makes for some small hands on the opponent quickly. Blindsides can go through easier because of this. Drop Toe Hold has very little drawback due my opponent having just about no options for removal unless I have Shoot Counter in play. Hopefully I manage to draw Shoot Russian Leg Sweep in my opening hand to play protected with Initation. It's a whole different game if this works out.
Any other non-hybrid maneuver can be picked up with my Mid-match ACE as long as they get removed from the game. Which will happen with the ACE cost and Volley This. Punk's Springboard Lariat is great, same with Dynamic Finisher and The Perfect Neck Snap.

It's a fast aggressive deck that can keep your opponent from successfully playing maneuvers for a while early on.

Mistakes/Changes:

Flurry of Finishers lets me play my first or second Trademark Finisher ignoring the "Can only be played..." text. I missed this with The Perfect Neck Snap, otherwise I would have been playing it first along with a second TMF from Ringside. Adding See How it Feels in the Backlash is a must as well since it can be played along with Flurry. That will make 7 TMF in this deck.

Choke Hold was a big loss for my in my 5th round game against Scotty. It removed my Leg Drag from the game, I also had one in Ringside from my ability. Played The Muscle of New Nexus to a multi Strike, it allows me to search for a non-unique maneuver. Couldn't find a Leg Drag since I didn't check my areas first and had to let the maneuver through. Technical Monkey Flip for Tech in a Bottle, so that will be the change going forward replacing the two Choke Holds. This will not work, they cannot pack set-ups.

Other than that, I've been really happy with this deck over the last few months and the practice really paid off this past weekend at Planet Funkcon. Feel free to comment/critique.

Alrighty makes sense. My follow up is from a ruling we had this weekend about Carlito Say not being able to reverse a German Suplex played with using its reversal restriction. Which doesn’t match this rule.

German Suplex
Grapple
When this is the first card played of your turn and you reversed a card from your hand to end your opponent's last turn, this card can only be reversed from his Backlash deck or Arsenal.
Throwback
F: 4      D: 8

It’s also a similar to the rule made about Shoot Lock-up previously made found here: http://teamcanadaonline.net///index.php/topic,15491.msg181191.html#msg181191

How do these have different rules when the two cards have reversal restrictions in ink on the card?
