I’ve been following the coming set release with the card spoilers and I think I may pick some up if there’s an interested within the community locally. Has anyone else been paying attention to the set?

Rules Forum / Marquee & Trish's Thesz

The Marquee says "Wrestling!"
Pre-match Event
Can only be played by a Legend or when you have a Pre-match card with 'chain' in the text in your Ring.
When your Fortitude Rating is less than 7, your Grapple and Submission maneuvers cannot be reversed by non-Superstar-specific hybrid reversals or by non-reversal cards.
ACE: During your turn, when your Fortitude Rating is 7 or greater, put this card into your Ringside and then search your Arsenal for a non-Unique Grapple or Submission, reveal it, put it in your hand, and shuffle your Arsenal.
F: 0    D: 0 Unique

Trish's Thesz Press     (Trish Stratus logo)
Mid-match Reversal: Special
Can only be packed by Trish Stratus.
Reverse any non-Trademark Finisher maneuver and then choose any number of cards in your opponent's Ringside, and he puts those cards on the bottom of his Arsenal.
ACE:  When he plays a non-Unique maneuver, you may put The MaTrish Move from your hand into your Ring to reverse it.
F: 0    D: 0 Unique

Would the ACE effect on Trish's Thesz Press be considered a legal reversal effect under the protection from Marquee?
The effect is generated from a reversal card, and card being put into play is a reversal as well.
We rule in favour of it being a legal play today, and feel we can argue in favour of both side of the argument for it.

Tommy Dreamer's Kendo Stick doesn't have his logo.
I had a player using this as a non-Specific card for his deck construction.

Virtual Raw Deal / Roundtable Livestream
« on: November 10, 2017, 01:19:03 PM »
Scott, myself and two of our local players are planning to livestream a recording for a Virtual Roundtable discussion. The goal is to record a video to share our experiences getting into Virtual in a short time period after a large portion of the sets have been released. This is for new players to the expansions for established
Curious as to what timing would work for viewers of this? We're aiming to make it interactive for viewers with your question and comments to be included.

Tournament Reports / Virtual 8 Barrie, Ontario - October 22
« on: October 22, 2017, 01:23:34 PM »
We had a Virtual 8 exclusive event today, with a lower than expected turnout. A combination of conflicting schedules and not enough time to construct decks were the root causes. So Round Robin it is!
I've been working on Hart Dynasty for a few weeks. Premiere Smackdown with #1 Announcer Funaki, Zack Ryder GRA and The Queen of Harts to do some serious deck digging to have a good opening hand was the theme of the Pre-match phase. Packed a maneuver base of Chains, a few High Risks to play off of From the Top Rope and Running Clothesline TB to play after Sprineboard at 1F.

Dave - Summer Rae
Eric - The Hart Dynasty
Pat - Team Xtreme
Scott - Fandango

Round 1
Team Xtreme p Harts
Fandango p Summer

Round 2
Fandango p Team Xtreme
Harts p Summer Rae

Round 3
Fandango p Harts
Team Xtreme p Summer Rae

Scott had an undefeated record, so he walked away with a Brooke Adams Backstage Autograph Session.

Will update when matches are uploaded.

Tournament Reports / 2017 Store Championship Barrie, Ontario
« on: October 07, 2017, 08:52:11 AM »
On September 16 we held our first Store Championship tournament. The idea was to hold the event to coincide with GenCon, however with the busy summer schedules not everyone was able to make it to the initial set date.
For prizing we had a TKc with 2 sets of Classic prizing, a Santino BAS card that I was able to get signed and foil alternate art cards printed by Keith0913832 that can be seen here:

I played a Kane deck that used Hell in a Cell and priortized getting Journey into Darkness into my Ring for milling. Back in Classic, this was a mean deck that many didn't see coming and I won an event with it. With the changes in Virtual, I felt that this deck could still do some damage, and it did, when it worked.
Here is the playlist for the recorded events. I was able to get all 6 rounds of play thanks to charging my ipad for the duration of the event.

Round 1:
The Game p X-Treme Diva
RVD p Zack Ryder
Devil's Favorite Demon p Stacy
Kane p Rowdy One

Round 2:
RVD p Kane
Devil's Favorite p The Game
Rowdy One p Zack Ryder
Stacy timed double loss X-Treme Diva

Round 3:
RVD p Devil's Favorite
Kane p The Game
Zack Ryder p X-Treme Diva
Stacy timed double loss Rowdy One

Round 4:
RVD p The Game
Devil's Favorite p Kane
Zack Ryder p Stacy
X-Treme Diva timed double loss Rowdy One

Top 4:
RVD pinned Zack Ryder
Devil's Favorite pinned Kane

Final and the 2017 Barrie, Ontario Store Champion
The Devil's Favorite Demon

The day was a fun one. It was nice to see some competitive decks play against each other. We're generally not a competitive meta here, so the different tone was a welcome rare change.

Rules Forum / Zack Ryder + Fortitude Surge
« on: September 16, 2017, 06:42:17 PM »
Ryder overturns 3 cards to give Fans Love an Underdog protection from reversals. Can I play Fortitude Surge since I'm not playing it to the card, but to the effect on my reversals?

Zack Ryder
Starting Hand Size: 5     Superstar Value: 0
Superstar Ability:  Once during each of your turns, you may overturn 3 cards and your opponent cannot play reversals to your next Activated Card Effect this turn.
When you have a Pre-match card with an Activated Card Effect in your Ring, you cannot play a Pre-match card with the same title.
You may not pack Venues.

Fans Love an Underdog
Pre-match Event
At the end of the Pre-match phase, if you are not the player with the lowest Superstar Value, put this card into your Ringside pile.
When this card is in your Ring area, as a Mid-match Action, you may put this card into your Ringside pile, draw 1 card, and your opponent’s Reversal card to your next card played this turn is +8F.
F: 0      D: 0

Fortitude Surge
Mid-match Reversal: Special
Can only be played if an effect your opponent controls is modifying your Reversal cards.
When this card is in your Ring area, you may put this card into your Ringside pile and your Reversal cards are unaffected by Fortitude modification for the rest of the turn.
F: 0      D: 0

Rules Forum / # vs number
« on: June 22, 2017, 02:32:49 PM »
Is a # a considered a number for these card effects?

The Flannel Shirt
Pre-match Object
Cannot be blanked and your opponent cannot prevent you from playing this card. Cannot be packed when packing Wrestlemania.
After all Pre-match cards are played, you may put Origins 2005 from your Backlash into your Ring, and it cannot be blanked; your Cheap Pops Rule! do not take up a Pre-match slot in your Ring. Cards with those titles are considered Superstar-specific for his effects.
Double the numbers in your cards with 'cheap pop' or 'Socko' in the title, and when you discard a card with 'cheap' in the title, it is considered to be 2 cards for your card effects.
F: 0     D: 0     Unique     Permanent

Cheap Pops All Around!
Put up to # cards with the words "cheap pop" in the title from your Ringside pile into your hand, where # is equal to the number of cards in your Ring area with the words "cheap pop" in the title.
Your opponent puts up to # cards with the words "cheap pop" in the title from his Ringside pile into his hand, where # is equal to the number of cards in his Ring area with the words "cheap pop" in the title.
When played in Columbus, OH at Origins, you may shuffle 1 card from your Ringside pile into your Arsenal.

This came up at our last event.
Does this reverse something that Can only be reversed from Arsenal, hand, Ringside etc?

Diesel-Powered Sidewalk Slam
Grapple / Reversal: Special
When packed by Hall & Nash or The Wolfpack, this card is nWo.  When you are Diesel, this card is -10F.
As a maneuver, when played after a successfully played maneuver, can only be reversed by Superstar-specific reversals.
As a reversal, reverse any card that cannot be reversed, 'can only be reversed' by a specific card or type of card, or has Momentum.

Rules Forum / Boots to A$$es
« on: June 10, 2017, 10:06:58 PM »
Does the first line of text work when used as an action and a reversal? It's difficult to tell when each effect has their own line.

Boots to A$$es!
Action / Reversal: Special
Reveal the top 5 cards of your Arsenal, put any revealed maneuvers in your hand, and shuffle.
As an action, shuffle up to 3 maneuvers in your Ringside into your Arsenal.
As a reversal, reverse any non-maneuver card.

« on: April 06, 2017, 03:49:18 PM »
Do I count the cards overturned from the ACE when putting cards from Ringside into my hand, or just discarded cards?

Controlling the Pace of the Match

During your opponent's turn, before his Draw Segment, you may put this card from your Backlash into your Ring and end his turn; when it was not the first turn of the game, draw up to 2 cards.

Raw Deal Players Committee / World Wide Store Championships?
« on: February 09, 2017, 11:21:37 PM »
With the talk of the Raw Deal World Championship coming to Gen Con in August and a majority of players unable to attend, I propose a world wide store championship event on Saturday August 19.

The idea is to bring the international community together by having the best of the best play for the top prize in the game, promoting the feeling that this isn't a typical tournament for the players' local scene. Raw Deal has small communities scattered all over the world; what better time to bring us all together?

What are the thoughts of doing a prize kit specifically for this event? The kit could include some promos and alternate art cards that are generally only accessable at Gen Con, and maybe even an exclusive card for the store champion that day.

I believe with the head start we have before August, everyone can arrange to have a tournament on the same day, and it will be a nice throwback to when there were world-wide qualifers in Raw Deal's hayday of yesteryear.
