Test and play restrictions
« on: May 20, 2017, 09:45:27 PM »
From what I understand, SS-specifics ignore packing restrictions such as in the case of Lita's ability and Lita's DDT.

But what about PLAY restrictions? Test's ability states he cannot play pre-match cards so the question is how does he actually get to play his Un-Americans faction card?

Test
Starting Hand Size: 2     Superstar Value: 2
Superstar Ability: Your Backlash deck may contain an additional 6 Mid-match cards. You cannot play any Pre-match cards except the card titled Managed by Stacy Keibler, it is not a Heel card, and before the Pre-match you may put up to 2 into play. You may not play more than 2 of any non-unique card. You may play up to 2 of all unique cards. Before your Draw Segment, your opponent discards # cards, where # is equal to the number of cards your opponent has in his hand greater than the number of cards in your hand+2.
INX

The Un-Americans
Pre-match Faction
Cannot be blanked.
When your opponent plays a card with 'American' or 'U.S.A.' in the title, he discards 1 card.
During his turn when he draws cards, except for his Ability or his Draw Segment, he overturns 1 card, and when he moves cards from his Ringside to his Arsenal, except for his Ability, he discards 1 card (when you are Test, he overturns 1 card instead).
F: 0     D: 0     Unique     Active     Permanent

Test cant play it, as there's really not much to get around a play restriction. Another example of this is Vince McMahons ability and his Vinny Mac Attack, though in that case, the move was erratad to allow it to be played.

Test has the 2 Managed by Stacy and his 2 of his specific that put themself into play (not played) so they get around it, this card cannot unless I'm missing something

Only test that'll play this is <R> Test in VAA.

Except you forget all instances of "play" in abilities were replaced with "Pack"

Pack
-To ‘Pack’ a card is to include it in your Arsenal, Backlash deck, or Backstage Area during deck construction.
-You can play any card you could legally Pack, unless specifically restricted. EXAMPLE:  Vince McMahon or Eugene’s Superstar Abilities.
-You can pack a Superstar-Specific card if it is legal to pack it, as long as it does not conflict with the other cards in your Arsenal.  Normally, this will only apply to cards with the logo show on the Superstar card, but some Superstar Abilities allow for other cards to be packed such as Eugene and remake Superstars such as The Game and Big Freak’n Machine.  These cards can be prevented by restrictive abilities such as Vince McMahon, but can be prevented by cards such as I’d Rather Be in Chyna or The Peep’s Champ.


Also test was ERRATA'd years ago:

Test
ERRATA: The ability now begins with the text: “You cannot pack any Pre-match cards except the card titled Managed by Stacy Keibler, it is not a Heel card, and before the Pre-match you may put up to 2 into play.  You may not pack more than 2 of any non-unique card.  You may pack up to 2 of all Unique cards.”

Nothing is stopping Test from playing Un-Americans

Ahh, that explains EVERYTHING. Alright, thank you for the responses. Was wondering why Test had a card where he couldn't play and did not make sense to me. Thanks for the clarification!
