Umaga Assistance
« on: January 19, 2012, 11:00:23 AM »
Has anyone made themselves a good non-revo Umaga yet?  I loves me some sponge/soak decks, but I can't manage to piece a good-feeling deck together.

The only thing I'm sure I want is The Great Khali in my Corner for <Revolution> The Immovable Object and Rochester, NY.  I've gone back and forth on just about everything else.

Beg for Mercy is a nice thing to say, getting that to hit is the part. Its not like Umaga has a neat little way of putting "What a Maneuver" in to their ring area like The Radicalz do.

To be honest, Umaga is pretty strong with his -3D, and I'm not sure you have to be tied to Great Khali just for his 1 unique antic.

Elbows, Clumsy, Back Fist, Sustained Damage + Steel Chain Shots, its pretty much the same reversal base I would use in a Rock deck. The problem with Umaga's Virtual Cards is that the maneuvers are not very good, although I believe that has more to do with not wanting those to interact well with Frankie's scoop Rev-Umaga build than anything else. Everytime I want to build non-Rev Umaga, i just throw it against the wall because Rev-Umaga is just an easier build.

While Beg for Mercy would be amazing, it's an illegal pack for UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU UUUUUUUUUUUMaga, as he can't pack non-hybrid Actions.

I have the start of something (as I stare at bars moving left to right...) and here's what it is:

Backstage():
Usual crap + Hometown Hero

Pre-Match(12):
<R> Backed by Armando Alejandro Estrada

Introduce Your Brain To Your Mouth
Restricted Use In This Area
Sustained Damage

This Is Going Nowhere Fast!
Undermine the Competition
Victory Roll
You're As Graceful As A Cow On Ice
Your Reach Exceeds Your Grasp

Maneuvers
<R> Main Event Flying Forearm
<R> Sexy Boy Atomic Drop
<R> The Samoan Diving Head Butt
<R> The Samoan Spike
<R> The Samoan Wrecking Ball

if you really want the no damage umaga rout you just have to go ring psychology arm and get an arm manuever out plus don't question the fire and the new ecw champioship belt most manuevers will do no damage at all.

Vince McMahon’s Billion Dollar Representative
 Pre-match: Storyline
 Superstar Value: +5
 New Superstar Ability:
 Your opponent reverses a Mean from his Backlash or Arsenal: draw cards equal up to the number of different Targets in your Ring.
 Unique

If you're splashing Revolution maneuvers with a bunch of different targets AND playing a lot of Means, it can balloon your hand up nicely. The +5 Superstar Value isn't terrible either.
