Superstar Spotlight: <R> Elijah Burke
« on: January 20, 2018, 03:25:49 AM »
Alright, here it is the return of Superstar Spotlight! Just for a refresher, if you are curious about ANY superstar send me a message and I'll spotlight your request. This will include Revolution superstars as well. I will also allow for previously done superstars to be revisited as well. This game changes with every set, so I have no issue with repeated superstars. That being said here is our next superstar.

Please keep those requests coming. Today's is another 'request' in <R> Elijah Burke!!!!!



1.)  How viable is this superstar?
2.)  Is there a Superstar Specific Card that you'd like to spotlight? 
3.)  How have you built said superstar?  How did it work out?
4.)  How well does the Superstar fare in whichever format you built them in be it VC/VAA/NXT/VR/Non-Virtual
5.)  Final Thoughts on this Superstar?

AND

6.) Since this Superstar is a Legacy one (in that he was in the game before Virtual) can you elaborate a little on how Virtual has changed this Superstar?

1.)  How viable is this superstar?
Elijah Burke has a good ability for pumping hand and recovery. But that is about it because he packs the depth in his other cards that could have pulled him up.
 
2.)  Is there a Superstar Specific Card that you'd like to spotlight? 
His ability is his best asset, all others are negligible. A worthy card to mention would be his Pre-match that you could build your deck around with.

3.)  How have you built said superstar?  How did it work out?
His ability doesn't lean towards anything so it's very general. You could go with either ring Psychology Leg to pick up maneuvers, while chucking the leftover reversals or unwanted legs below your Arsenal to get a higher chance of getting the card if ruckus is in play.
Another way would be to capitalise on his Pre-match by making all his means colossals. Outmaneuver is the most basic extreme reversal but that doesn't reverse colossals. So you would want to go with NON-extreme cores to build up fort to hit in colossals. Catching him in between 3 to 6f when you hit those colossals would mean he can't use slow the match to a crawl OR I won't be beat tonight.
The 3rd way of playing would be to make use of his 'put up to 1 card from Ringside at the bottom of your arsenal'. There are a bunch of cores that allow you to search for the same target or a different maneuver type. Use your ability to your advantage by recovering maneuvers thst you can search for. Lure thst hit like a girl out early in the game and you can keep searching your way to victory!

4.)  How well does the Superstar fare in whichever format you built them in be it VC/VAA/NXT/VR/Non-Virtual
His ability works well in all formats. In fact, it's even better than the Rock! But beyond that, it's up to individual preference to play depending on which format.

5.)  Final Thoughts on this Superstar?
Amazing ability for all formats, but a little disappointing on his support.

AND

6.) Since this Superstar is a Legacy one (in that he was in the game before Virtual) can you elaborate a little on how Virtual has changed this Superstar?
As stated above, his pre match can determine the build of the deck, but not entirely necessary.
