The Total Package and Mean Gene
« on: June 28, 2018, 09:59:08 AM »
Posting this for a discord user (Dizzy), had me questioning it:

The Total Package
Starting Hand Size: 6     Superstar Value: 3
WWF Superstar Ability: Your cards cannot be modified by non-Backstage card effects or your opponent's Ability.
You may pack No Sell Maneuver cards and Lex Luger cards, replace "dynamic" with "BASH" in their text, and they are WWF cards instead of WCW or nWo cards.


Interviewed by Mean Gene Okerlund
Pre-match Event
Cannot be blanked.
Cannot be packed by Cryme Tyme, Eddie Guerrero, Eugene, Mr. Pay-Per-View, and The Home Team, or when packing Revolution WWE Cruiserweight Title Belt or a card with 'no escape' or 'salary' in the title.
When packing this card, your cards listed on this card are Unique, Permanent, and ignore the "Can only be played..." text.
Your opponent cannot respond to your Good Things Sometimes Happen, Offer Handshake, Turn the Tide, Turn Up the Heat, Well-Deserved Push, and Who Booked This Match? cards.
F: 0     D: 0     Unique     Permanent


Can I pack this in The Total Package to get the benefits without my cards becoming unique and permanent per his ability?

Hate to bother, just hoping I can get a clear understanding on this.

Yeah, Package protects his cards from everything that Mean Gene tries to do to them. For Package, the entire third clause might as well not exist.

So Mean Gene is completely useless in Total Package?

While I try to keep the Rules Forum strictly about rules, there's probably people asking if we're going to errata something.  Quite frankly, I'm not worried that a BASH-oriented Superstar might do something with Face cards, when his maneuvers can't be modified by cards with 'Turn' in the title, but if we get word down the road about some broken build, we can consider it.

Turn Up the Heat and Turn the Tide can't make stuff irreversible for Package, and Good Things Sometimes Happen is a dead card for Package, but everything else on there works fine (as long as Package can get his SSV below 3 for Well-Deserved Push, anyway).

Whether it's a good idea or not is outside the scope of the Rules Forum.

Welcome to the Rules Forum!

For future reference, this section is not for opinions, it is for the official rules of the game.  Since I've stepped up to directing production of new sets, Daeva is now the 'official' rules manager of Raw Deal.  Between the two of us, we use the past rules and precedents to determine issues as needed and set any rules necessary.

So if you aren't sure about a rule, you don't need to guess, someone will post the official answer to the question before long.  :)
