I haven't seen any of MLW, but I love the concept of the character and your execution here.  Maybe his Arsenal should only have 52 cards?  Hahaha

Thank you Creed!

I had figured out the first part of his Fighter Ability, and the second part just came to me out of the blue as "That'd be cool and it fits!" Everything else fell into place pretty quickly, like the card effects on his maneuvers, the Aces High reversal, and the like. "Is This Your Card?" got an assist from Dilbert when he suggested the card do that. It's based on one of his signature taunts when he's wrestling, when he flicks his hand, shows his opponent an Ace of Spades playing card, and then pummels them.

I was impressed by Austin's match against DJZ this past Saturday, and looked up some highlights, and not only was I impressed, but I began getting a bunch of ideas for a set for him.

Any further feedback from anyone else would be appreciated.

Why does Ace Austin care about 7s? I'd expect him to like aces (1F/1D), not 7s. Is there a shoutout that I'm missing because I haven't watched a ton of MLW?

Part of Ace’s gimmick revolves around being a gambler. Poker in particular but gambling in general as well. And as you know, Triple 7 is the slot reel combo famous for being the jackpot spin. Also 7 being a lucky number in general. Hence why if he plays something that’s F:7 or D:7, he gets cards.

I have made some modifications to Ace Austin:

-Changed "Is This Your Card?" to be Mid-Match
-Per Creed's suggestion and with input from Dilbert, added the Arsenal limitation and additional ability.

If it were me, I'd move toward invoking the triple-7 and give him a card that lets him flip 3 7F/7D cards in his Ring face-down to draw 5. Drawing 3 off of 7F/7D cards makes me kinda leery, 'cause there are some DAMN good 7F actions and reversals out there. Drawing 3 for landing That's Balanced is pretty scary.

It was absolutely not my intent to include Reversals, so thank you for pointing it out. After your feedback, I decided to keep the draw three clause, but I've restricted it solely to F:7 or D:7 Maneuvers.
