Live Sex Celebration and Edge's SHS
« on: May 27, 2018, 11:39:41 AM »
Does blanking Edge's superstar ability with Love Sex Celebration make his starting hand size 0?

Starting Hand Size: #     Superstar Value: 3
Superstar Ability: # is equal to twice your opponent's Superstar Value. # cannot be less than 6. You start the game after the Pre-match phase. When you successfully play the card titled Faceplant, you may shuffle up to 4 cards from your Ringside pile into your Arsenal. When you successfully play the card titled You Think You Know Me?, do not discard any cards.

Backstage Card
Can only be packed by Edge. When packing this card, you can pack up to 3 Liason with Lita cards in your Backstage (they are not Cheater), and at the end of the Pre-match phase, put those cards into your Backlash.  You can only play 1 of those cards during any turn, and when you have lower Fortitude he cannot respond to it.
Your Ability is blank, and when you search for Roll Out of the Ring, you may also search for any Unique card.
During your turn when 3 copies of Liason With Lita are in your Ring, you may remove them from the game and then shuffle up to 8 cards from your Ringside into your Arsenal.

From the OmniFAQ, under ALL SUPERSTARS:

-Any text in a Superstar Ability text box that defines a variable (“#”) given for the Starting Handsize or Superstar Value is not considered to be a Superstar Ability, only a definition of the Starting Handsize / Superstar Value.

Also, under Edge:

-Cerebral Assassin will not prevent Edge from resolving his Starting Hand Size as printed.

tl;dr - no, # is considered 'too much to write in the SHS box' and isn't considered part of his Ability when blanked.
