Welcome (back) to Raw Deal / Re: Popular Raw Deal Acronyms
« on: October 17, 2017, 10:20:19 PM »
Thanks for the post it has been useful. :)

Holy necro thread, Batman.

A few have been dug up which is neat to see. I don't think I've ever read the 4 Phases of Raw Deal post before.

Rules Forum / Re: The Second Coming Question
« on: October 13, 2017, 09:00:35 AM »
Would this mean The Hart Dynasty's card they're playing face down from hand would have to meet the fortitude requirement? These guys and Second Coming are two different effects, but dealing with same theme of face down cards.

THE HART DYNASTY
Starting Hand Size: 8     Superstar Value: 3
Stable Superstar Ability:  You can pack Chain Wrestling, From the Top Rope, and Springboard in your Backstage Area.  During your turn, you may discard 1 card and play 1 card from hand face-down; when you do, choose 1 Set-up card in your Backstage Area, and your played card gains the text and title of the chosen card, and gains the text 'Cannot be reversed'.
When you would flip over a face-down card in your Ring, shuffle it into your Arsenal instead.
You are a Tag Team.

Not correct, because we're talking about different mechanics.

Think of Second Coming's ability as similar to playing a card from under another card.  Outside reduction abilities aside, you can't throw a turn 1 Press Slam from under Back to Basics because you don't have 24F.  Same concept here - you're trying to play a Shoot Lock-Up, not a face-down card. 

Hart Dynasty's ability permits you to play a face-down card from hand.  The printed contents of the card don't matter - the card is face down, which by definition has nothing but a title, so it passes the requirements check, and then the Superstar Ability adds the text and irreversibility after the check.

<This space will be filled with timing breakdown specifics shortly.>

Okay, thanks for the thorough ruling. :)

Virtual Raw Deal / Re: hart dynasty ability
« on: October 12, 2017, 10:55:43 PM »
You could always proxy them just for the sake of building the deck.

Getting back to The Hart Dynasty, has anyone else made an attempt at them yet? After a playtest with these guys, their cycling in the prematch makes more sense. They have various ways to get maneuvers into hand with two of the set-ups and can play certain ones cheaper thanks to The New Foundation and Trained in the Hart Dungeon.
I'm wondering if it's worth adding some maneuvers to work off of Springboard. Atomic Back Body Drop looks fun, but their card pool calls for Chain.

At the end of the day our meta  is pretty laid back. That's why we'll see some superstars win that are never discuss here like Devils Favourite Demon, Road Dogg and RVD.

Why do you need a "laid back" meta for Devil's Favorite Demon to get a win?

He's not a superstar you hear about in reports and larger tournaments. Figured there was a reason, but around here he's hadn't one loss.

Rules Forum / Re: Dont try this at home
« on: October 11, 2017, 08:24:00 PM »
Managed by Terri Runnels
Pre-match Manager: Heel
Your opponent’s Starting Hand Size is -1.
When this card is in your Ring area, you may put this card into your Ringside pile to reverse any card that would allow your opponent to search his Arsenal for any number of cards and end his turn.

Managed by Terri is used as a reversal toyohr opponent's effect during his turn. Your opponent is not allowed to play reversals on his turn sonhe would be unable to play Don't Try this at Home.

You should find a way to borrow a bunch of signatures and build a Doink deck using his rules. He may have a change of heart to the actual rules afterwards.

Virtual Raw Deal / Re: hart dynasty ability
« on: October 11, 2017, 03:56:11 PM »
I haven't really considered that stipulation. That's a card that hasn't been dropped against me, so I'm not too concerned. Until every deck I play against next Sunday reveals it.

I've been playing around with these guys and have to revise a good chunk of my deck to accommodate some issues.
Handsize drops really fast with the discard and playing the facedown card. Considering going a Premiere Smackdown Route since I'm running the Smackdown title that searches for a Chain of Volley maneuver and SD cards throughout the Arsenal and Backlash deck. Steel Chain Shots are on the short list, and ICBRTR is a must pack.
Don't rely too much on their Prematch card that give you the cheap move after a facedown card. Your Reach Exceeds your Grasp will hit it and you're at a 3-4 card loss turn one.

Full disclosure. Podbean is the podcatcher that I use and I want to listen to your podcast and am too lazy to use another podcatcher

Sorry maskedllama, but Podbean is pretty restrictive with a free account and we're unable to get the show hosted through their services. Have you considered checking us on on Youtube, or downloading the mp3 to your phone from http://backlashpod.podiant.co?

About that spoiler....haha

Glad they didn't have him attack. Hopefully they develop this long term and get some milage out of it. Sami is so well liked to begin with, let's get a good long turn out of him.

Not a prediction exactly, but I read online somewhere about an idea that Sami interferes on Kevin's behalf and turns heel got me pretty excited.


*Spoiler haha

Is it a spoiler? When I saw it online it was someone's idea.

General Discussion: Raw Deal / Re: ready set Action!
« on: October 08, 2017, 11:55:57 AM »
Trish Stratus is a great Action deck. I haven't put her together since playing Virtual, her new mismatch reversal helps her out on the defensive along with Revos will help with more deck space.
Michael Coke was a deck inwas tinkering with before giving up. His ability to name any Action reversals can be pretty good depending on how you want to win.
You should consider Vickie Guerrero as well. The ability to play Actions during your opponent's turn is unique in the game. You can overwhelm them quickly and have an unstoppable blue wave later on.

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: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJX_5vwTJzE

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.
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4LFJ5MvTVVwTMDqum8RwxFgcoQZXqSxQ


Round 1:
The Game p X-Treme Diva

Round 4:

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.

Deck Reviews - Classic / Re: Evolution PRS Table Scoop Deck
« on: October 06, 2017, 08:28:11 PM »
Quote from: BigPimpin
Pre usually included (IIRC)
Raw IC Title
Raw HW Title
Managed by Bischoff
PRS
Dance, Coach

I can't find the Raw HW title.
Or is it the World Heavyweight Title that has the Raw logo in the middle of the belt? I'm assuming that counts as a Raw card since it's ability looks for a Raw card?

That card and the Cruiserweight Title were misprinted without their brand's logo.

« on: October 05, 2017, 03:55:49 AM »
I'm not familiar with this deck, although I do recall a Trish Status deck doing something similar. The maneuver you might be thinking  about is Wheelbarrow Slam.


Wheelbarrow Slam
Grapple
Can only be reversed from your opponent’s hand.
When successfully played, overturn 1 card.
F: 0      D: 3

General Chat / Re: Getting autographs from the Bullet club
« on: September 29, 2017, 08:04:02 AM »
I've turned face cards into signature cards for various wrestlers and have made some  for Bullet Club when I went to the ROH show back in May. I didn't get them so sign them, opted to have something else done by them.
This is an example of what I do with the face cards that's I've made for a local wrestler. I can send you the images I've made for BC if you want.

Rules Forum / Re: unbreakable chain
« on: September 24, 2017, 04:57:13 PM »

Unbreakable Chain
Pre-match Event
When this card is in your Ring area, if your opponent reverses a Chain card, you may put this card into your Ringside pile, put up to 3 Chain cards from your Ringside pile on the bottom of your Arsenal, and continue your turn.
� � � (Activated Card Effect Symbol)
F: 0      D: 0

It doesn't specify where the reversal has to come from, so you will be able to include Arsenal.

Superstar Strategy Guides / Re: Strategy Guide Errors and Updates
« on: September 22, 2017, 11:59:37 AM »
I noticed this with Hart Dynasty and Bret, not sure if the others are the same. Is there's any chance that any of the superstars on The Hart Family could have the supported faction non-logo cards added to their guides? Could the same thing with the other Virtual Factions as well?
