Virtual Raw Deal / Re: The Cutting Room Floor

Thank god we didn't get the ECW archetype. It strays so far away from actually feeling extreme that it actually felt really boring.

TBH I adore how much love was given to ECW later on, Terry Funk remains one of my most favorite decks to ever play.

Thanks Creed!  I appreciate the advice.

I think our group will be staying classic, but I'll have to check out his virtual cards.

Thanks again!

Chavo gains a LOT in the Virtual sets, though you might not have explored that avenue yet. However, his core engine still works well. He has several options as you mention, but you could use a mix of them and try to strike a balance. Sometimes you're tossing that High Risk for more recursion, sometimes you're picking it up to launch an offense.

FYI - he doesn't have a UR TMF, he had the Inverted Powerbomb (which is kind of 'meh' IMO) from the Los Guerreros set, the non-Unique Premium Rare called The Gory Bomb, and his URs were the One for One reversal in No Way Out, and The Three Amigos in Great American Bash. (Also, he gets Third Generation Superstar from Randy Orton's set, and the El Paso, Texas Venue along with Eddie)

To me, he definitely leans Smackdown so one idea is to use the US Title to reach 3SV and Premiere Smackdown Superstar for more card draw, which further reduces the opponent's Pre-match slots with Chavo's My Life For You Pre-match. Then you can fetch Diving Takedowns to whittle down an opponent's hand while building your own.

Alternately, you could go with the Technical set, since every one fetches another Technical as a maneuver, so you could get a Tech. Stomp or Splash, then discard it to put some cards back (including a Technical!)

Some cards you might look at:

Counter Slash - could be helpful early on, since they can't be Elbowed or hit with Revolution of the Mind. Later on when they are more reversible as the opponent's Fortitude rises, use them for the Ability instead.
Flying Leg Scissors TB - with the US title, or any other Smackdown PM, you can get hit and respond with Dirty Low Blow into this as a 2/8 High Risk.
Flying Clothesline TB - a 5/10 HR that can be played after any maneuver, so Sustained Damage won't limit your ability to play this card for a big Fortitude jump.

Hopefully these ideas help!

Ok I see the two obvious choices on here. Now would Sandow be able to draw 2 cards if I choose to draw 2 cards or would he have to apply the other effect?

So if I play a card with one effect on it like Candice Internet Icon that let's me put up to 12 cards from my ringside on the bottom of my arsenal, Sandow cant choose to use the same effect. If you will, can I get an example of what would trigger his backstage effect?

Nope.

Believe in The Shield! doesn't simulate any specific kind of Counter, only the generic kind. If the Counter requirement has any specificity to it, then Believe in The Shield!'s effect is insufficient.
