Kofi Kingston: Mr. 24/7


Here is the last deck of 6 that I have done for newer superstars. Last Disclaimer that this is based on my collection and very little proxies from VRD. Plus this deck is using a mechanic that I am still not completely familiar with even after all these years later. Volley. So yeah be gentle.

What's with the european uppercuts?

Low Fortitude, decent damage, card draw ability that is not from VRD at this moment and time.

I play a lot of Volley.
Id consider going to 3 Cold Cocked,and running fisticuffs
With KK's ability,also think of running tb Missle Dropkick.
As a reversal,Volleyed beyond the Edge,works on overturn,and emptys Ringside when played from hand.

Managed from Lita gets you a starting maneuver or fuel for Pyrotechnic Volley

Somebody WILL double Overshot your Mark and destroy you.

I like tb Volley This,as you can toss it as a maneuver
Blindside Elbow drop+your SS ability too

Looks fairly good, obviously the bonus with kofi is it doesnt matter if your volleys hit or not to begin with.

I would be heel just in case you struggle to get off the ground you can get an almost guaranteed DLB (TB) and lethal nwo poison will help your volley build.

I would also review the reversals, not sure you need x3 elbows and the same goes for some of the others. I would suggest adding in some of the new unique reversals from Virtual and revo of the mind, gtfo, etc....

Where are your face reversals by the way. do you have access to sloppy very sloppy and once is enough. If not there are virtual throwbacks of each.

Alternative idea:
Add Unorthodox Style of Wrestling and adjust your move base to submissions and high risks. I quite like playing him either chain/heat + blindside.
The fact you can discard what you want allows you tro drop additional heat/blindside.

And if you use certain heat cards that allow you to shuffle cards back in then you can get ur non-heat and non-blindside high risks /reversals back. Or you could go all in and try your luck at a hell in the cell and attempt to stop all shuffling in.

I personally dislike volley, but it is a good build for him.
If your heart is 100% set on volley though, can i suggest running him with a submission base (heat/chain) to take advantage of unorthodox style of wrestling, with his high risks being a mixture of volley and blindside.
