why is this card so bad....or am I missing something
« on: March 06, 2019, 04:59:33 PM »
Warrior's Flying Shoulder Block
High Risk
Can only be played after a 3D or greater maneuver.
Draw up to 4 cards. For each card drawn less than 4, shuffle up to 2 cards from your Ringside into your Arsenal.

I am trying to build Ultimate Warrior and want to play this card but it just needs to miss something. It seems like it should have "can only be reversed from arsenal" or something. Can anyone help with ideas for this card.

Its multi if b2b is in your ring, that makes it better.

Not with RMS.

The idea was to give Warrior something fun, but he was rather beastly at the time, so not TOO much.

Still even though it can be Elbowed it's not a bad card if you hit it early.

Plus the drawing/recovery mechanic is pretty solid. Remember kids, not every card was made to be a game breaker!  ;)

This card isn’t terrible. You either force your opponent to play a reversal (Elbow, missed your chance, whatever) and they don’t have access to that to recover it late game or you bridge to 10F and almost double your handsize. Late game you can recover 8. I’d pack it - what have you got to lose? Concerned about deck space? I’d pack this over Elbow Drop, but ideally drop a different B2B move, like Body Slam instead.

Let us also not forget the other Ultimate Warrior type:

Quote
Parts Unknown
Pre-match Venue
Your Starting Hand Size is +3, and your opponent's Starting Hand Size is +2.
When you successfully play a card with blank text, draw up to 1 card.
When you are the Ultimate Warrior and Back to Basics is not in your Ring, you may not play Corners or Run-ins, this card does not increase your opponent's Starting Hand Size, and once during each of your turns you may search your Arsenal for a Superstar-specific maneuver, reveal it, put it in your hand, and shuffle your Arsenal.
F: 0     D: 0     Universally Active     Permanent

I underlined the import part.  This is a searchable card with Parts Unknown, so you can use it and pick your opportunity (like knowing they have nothing to stop it) then just search for it (NOT an ACE, by the way) and get yourself a massive draw, a massive recover, or a combination thereof.

The 4F is my issue. Ideally I would want to play it after Lunch TB then go from there. It just seems to be lacking there.

We have a OG lunch and a TB?? :laugh: :laugh:

In all seriousness probably making it "can only be played after a successful move" and losing the 4d+ part would serve it well :)

The lack of bridging off of Punch TB was intentional, because Warrior didn't need a one-two like that at the time.
