Building Mankind: Heel
« on: August 07, 2017, 06:51:41 PM »
Hello,

I just got back to the game after 11 years away :-)

I have nothing left beside a Mankind with all his cards but I have a friend that has all the cards I could possibly need so I'm working on a Mankind build around Heel cards and the Maintain Hold Throwback and I was wondering what you guys would pack in the deck.

I have access to an Underrated Superstar pre-match card, 3 Revolution of the Mind and 3 Manager Interferes.

Now, I know that it's not much, but I'm at a list on what I could add to make it a successful, playable and fun deck.

Help :-D

What the hell.....I'm in deck building mode here anyway, this is totally untested and put together in lackey in an hour (rumor has it the best decks are made this way), and it's a bit on the "cheap moves" side for my liking....but it's pretty straight forward....some cards like Get the F Out you can get the virtual TB versions for and cover that way if you don't have them....basic idea is to search out and play the Shoot Russian Leg Sweep to get your starting fort and have access to shoot counter and go to town from there:

Mankind: Heel/Cheater/Raw

Backstage:
Mankind's Mask **            Backstage Autograph Session
Backstage Signature            Best There Is, Best There Was **
Cause Adam Crites Said So **         Celebrity Shenanigans **
Defeating Villainous Shenanigans **      Enough Shenanigans! **
Hometown Hero   **            No More Shenanigans **
Nostalgia Shenanigans **            Old School Shenanigans **
Raw Deal Tenth Anniversary         Really, That's Enough Shenanigans **
WWE Raw Deal Fifth Anniversary         WWE Signing Appearance

Backlash:
Don't Question the Fire That Burns Inside **      The "On One" Arena, Ontario, California **
Managed by Paul Bearer               Foley is Good!         
Screeching Car Crash! **               One of the Big Boys **
ECW Championship Belt (tb)            The Champ Is Here!
Taunt the Fans                  Night of Champions **
A No Show            Frankie Takes Ho-llywood

Three Faces of Foley      3   Immune to Pain
Sustained Damage         You're as Graceful as a Cow on Ice
Your Reach Exceeds Your Grasp **      Undermine the Competition
Dirty Low Blow (tb) **         Restricted Use in This Area **
Shoot Counter **            Buying Myself Some Time **

Arsenal:
Get Hardcore            Mr. Socko **
Tree of Woe            Double Arm DDT **
Have a Nice Day! **         Mandible Claw **
Stump-Puller Piledriver **         Divine Intervention **
You're a Jive Soul Bro! **         Shocking Interference **
Back Throw **                                  Stop Trying To Hit Me and Hit Me! **
Don't be a Douchebag! **         I've Got One Thing To Say About That! **
Backhand Slap (tb) **         One! **
Take One Second **            Anything and Hate It
Here Comes the Cavalry! **         The NXT Generation **
You Missed Your Chance **         Stop Sign **
2   Volley This!         2   No Chance in Hell! (tb)
2   Don't Try This at Home **      2   Leg Drag (tb)
3   Manager Interferes      3   A Revolution of the Mind
3   Elbow to the Face      3   Clumsy Opponent
3   Shoot Russian Leg Sweep      3   Shoot Action
3   Shoot Lock-up         3   Shoot Forearm
3   Precision Kick         3   Precision Haymaker

I also went back and added a "**" next to each card you can find a virtual version (or TB of) here on TCO

crap....I forgot three Get the F Out's ** too

I'd cut the shoot russian leg sweep, the precision haymaker and the shoot forearms down to two to make room

Nice.

Thanks.

I'm not sure about the Volley This due to randomly removing cards from the ringside pile.

The Volley this's are for early on low fort actions until you get into no chance in hell, shocking interference and jive soul bro range (not to mention shoot counter hits a lot of actions too)

You could cut an immune to pain for an unscrupulous SOB as well

Confirmed.  Volley This is a staple in non-BASH decks.

Great for stopping things like That's Broken early on and getting some quick Fortitude.  Later on, perhaps you'd rather losing 5 / 8 / 10 cards from Ringside than do whatever the action would do if it succeeds, sure, but that's why you include other options just in case.  :)

Agreed. Volley this is effective.

My group plays lots of Revolution of the Mind... I fear the shoot maneuvers will have a hard time going through. But, I love Shoot punch. It punishes them from reversing

Shoot Foreratm and Shoot Double Arm Lock-up (not in the deck but easily addable) can't be reversed by revo of the mind

Also remember the first move is free  8)

The Mark Henry deck is the only real "Surprise" out of those three.  Despite the egregious penalty, I'm betting Flair Chain would happily remove that one move after ending turn 1, and if he hits Whoo!, it's all Chain moves with no Arsenal.  Also, Leader of the Peeps Heat is still one of the dirtiest decks in the game if you're not ready for it.  Backfire to Infinity.

Maybe swap out the 3 Shoot Forearms for 3 Judo Takedowns, a bit of Flair and Undermine insurance, that would be my first thought too

I blame my time away. I kept forgetting my backlash deck lol.

Couldn't do anything against Flair. Like, nothing. Kept everything off my board.
Christian was controling the game. I basically watch him pick me apart.

Henry just got lucky I guess. He always had reversals and I forgot my free move against him. The player never said anything cuz he had never seen Mankind before.

Overall, the deck pilots itself (Mankind), a pure pleasure to play. As a MTG player, I felt like I was playing blue red lol. Never lacked steam to plow forward. I played yesterday against a John Cena chain face and The Game cheater blindside. Had a blast. The Game was hard. Lost to a sledgehammer shot lol
