Asuka: The Empress of Tomorrow
« on: February 22, 2019, 10:07:15 AM »
Here is the first of 6 decks that I created for newer superstars. I am so out of touch of how deck building works. Reminder this is mainly from my collection of cards. Very few proxies or any maneuvers from the VRD sets. So be gentle.

Asuka: The Empress of Tomorrow. (Smackdown, Face deck)

Backstage: Asuka's Aggression

Pre-Match (12)

Osaka, Japan
Managed by Torrie Wilson
Nobody is Ready For Asuka!
Asuka's Furisode & Mask
NXT Women's Championship Title Belt
Backed by Smackdown's GM Vicki Guerrero
Old School Antics x2
Givin' 'em High Fives
Stun the Crowd
Pick Your Spots
This is Gonna Be a Rocket Buster

Mid-Match (12)

Asuka's Cross-Arm Breaker
Suicide Plancha (TB)
Suicide Strike
Victory Roll
Chase off Manager
Clear the Way
Fan Appreciation Day!
No Mercy!
Backlash
Fortitude Surge
Skirt the Issue
When You Thought You Had All the Answers

Maneuvers (29)

Haymaker x3
Forearm Uppercut x3
Left Cross Punch x3
Right Cross Punch x3
Rapid-Fire Punches x3
Spinning Back Fist x3
Whirling Backhand x2
Billiken
Discus Punch x2

Asuka Lock

Actions (11)

Reversals (20)

Elbow to the Face x3
Escape Move x3
Oversell Maneuver x3
Reach for the Ropes x3
Step Aside x3
Tomorrow Brings Danger
No Chance in Hell x2
Sloppy...Very Sloppy x2

The idea is to have her punch her opponents to death. This deck not tested in any way shape or form.

I am bumping my series of decks that have had no responses on them as I would like to get some feedback on these decks...I am figuring out what decks I want to fine tune and have ready for 2020 as 2019 is the year for me to re learn and re train myself for the Tournament Scene.

Please do not, it is against the rules of the site.  Thank you.

For what it's worth, noting Buddha's advice from the other deck list, having a general idea of what you want to do in Pre-match, basic strategy notes, etc. would probably help get more feedback.

While it would involve flipping from Face to Hell, have you considered running this with Brass Nuks Shot?

Quote
Brass "Nuks" Shot
Strike: Foreign Object / Reversal: High Risk / Heel
If played by William Regal, this card is -3F.
As a reversal, reverse any High Risk maneuver and end your opponent's turn.
When this card is in your Ring area, your cards with the word "punch" in the title, as well as your cards titled Haymaker and European Uppercut, are +2D and cannot be reversed from your opponent's Arsenal.
Active
F: 3   D: 5
"He's got the power of the punch, J.R.!" - Jerry "The King" Lawler

You can use No DQ Match to make it -3F, or, since you're Asuka and can search for those 0F Forearm Uppercuts, Spinning Backfists, and Whirling Backhands, you shouldn't have too much trouble getting to 3F. In addition, Brass Nuks interacts with Haymaker, another card on Asuka's Aggression. The downside to this is:

Quote
This Is Going To Be an Old School Brawl!
Mid-match Reversal: Special
Can only be played when your opponent plays a maneuver with a reversal restriction from his card that is not his first maneuver with a reversal restriction from his card this turn. Blank that maneuver's text and damage, he discards 2 random cards, and end his turn.
When this card is in your Ring and he plays a non-Superstar-specific maneuver with a reversal restriction from his card that is not his first maneuver this turn with a reversal restriction from his card, he overturns 2 cards.
F: 0     D: 2     Unique     RMS logo

Still, if you get your opponent to the point where they don't have any reversal options except to hope to overturn one, and your Brass Nuks is preventing Arsenal reversals, and you have a Cross Punch in hand, it's easily worth overturning 2 cards for a second, third, etc. Cross Punch that you know is going through to the tune of 6+ damage.

That is an interesting situation to look at. I am going to keep that in my back pocket. I have a tendency to build superstars based on their current show and alignment. If I see Auska do a full on Heel turn then this idea in my back pocket will come out and be more tested.
