Prematch: Isn't Calling You Out blank?
Mismatch: Just personal preference, I would drop You Knew It'd End This Way for Restricted Use

Reversals: I would find room for Counter Strike and more importantly, Missed Your Chance.

I'm curious how you get fortitude playing small grapple moves with seemingly no protection without getting smashed as you run quite a few 0F reversals yourself. I'd look at adding a Flawless Transition to go with your Quick Snaps to get that fortitude for Leg Drags.

I'm working on a Fandango myself right now, almost done the first draft now. I'll share more thoughts later as I stumble upon them.

Calling you out is only blank if the opponent packs the card that blanks it..I believe and as for my Maneuvers some people didn't care about a 342 to maneuver going in and a few of my low maneuvers were also reversals and as long as I got three of those out with leg psychology they could not reverse from backlash or from hand.

Only the inexperienced aren't blanking Calling You Out.  Once people realize there's no downside to Enough Shenanigans, you should expect to see it every match, and thus replace CYO with a card that will actually serve a purpose.  :)

Granted, if you just want to tell people your opinion, that's certainly your choice, but it seems like you're asking for improvements on your deck.

This was the first time I played this deck and yes I wanted some pointers to improve this deck because yes that calling you out will never work again and yes any pointers I would appreciate.

I'm going to reiterate what Scotty said. Restricted Use is the first reversal I sleeve for the Mid-Match, no matter who I'm playing. If it's not in here, something less important is.

I would probably cut You Knew It Would End This Way, but if you really feel the need to keep that for some reason, then you can consider cutting Backlash, since the vast majority of people play around it, or Brain-Mouth Connection, since it's such a late-game card.

I also have no idea how in the world you survive with so few reversals in-deck. If I'm counting correctly, that's 23 plus a couple superstar-specifics, which feels way too light to me. I'd consider either upping the number (I don't tend to feel right until I have a minimum of 30 cards that are primarily used to reverse, which includes Volley This, Sidewalk Slam TB, and Douchebag among others) or at a minimum clearing out space in your midmatch to also pack Sustained Damage. That way, at least you can discard to lessen the blow, if you can't reverse enough things.

And yes, Creed's absolutely right. Anything that is printed on a Shenanigans card, you can expect to see in every match. If you're packing a card that a Shenanigan blanks, assume it will be blank. If you're reliant on a trick a Shenanigans card interferes with, assume it won't work.
