Beware the COBRA!
« on: September 19, 2019, 11:03:03 AM »
Beware The COBRA!
Backstage Card
* This card is always considered revealed
Cannot be packed when packing cards with 'diva' in the text.
New Ability: "Once during each of your turns, you may overturn 3 cards and then put 1 card from your hand, up to 1 card from your Ringside, and up to 1 card removed from the game that is not a non-hybrid reversal on the bottom of your Arsenal in any order; draw 1 card.
When you successfully play a Superstar-specific card, you may search your Arsenal and Ringside for COBRA!, reveal it, put it in your hand, and shuffle.
Replace 'Antic' with 'Unique card' in the text of your Superstar-specific cards."

COBRA!
Trademark Finisher / Action
As a maneuver, can only be reversed from Arsenal.
As an action, this card is -40F and your opponent cannot respond to it, draw 1 card and shuffle this card into your Arsenal.
When this card is in your Ring and Beware The COBRA! is revealed, before each of your Draw Segments, your opponent overturns 1 card.
F: 40     D: 25     SV: 3     Unique

Can I  play COBRA!, draw 1, shuffle into arsenal and then search for COBRA via the text on the backstage card?

No, the outside text will resolve first, then the text of COBRA that puts it into your Arsenal.  It won't be in the deck fast enough for Beware to go get it.

To follow up Creed's post, here's how it looks in the (relevant portion of the) Timing Breakdown:

6 The card is now 'Successfully Played' and enters the Ring Area.  If this card is reversing the card in question (it is not the first reversal to a Multi, it is not Over Sell Maneuver), the affected maneuver is now considered reversed. (Any text on the card and any Traits on the card are considered to be in your Ring Area after this step is complete. This excludes text that would modify or trigger in any of the first six steps.)
6a Some cards are put into the Ringside Pile or other area instead of going to the Ring Area (Iron Will etc.) The Timing Breakdown still continues as normal, these cards never enter the Ring Area.  They will resolve during the text resolution (Step 8 ) at that time, and will still resolve to its destination even if blanked.

7a Effects you control (other than this card's text taking place when played or when successful played) that trigger on a Successfully Played card take place. In the event of more than one effect, you choose which order they occur.
7b Effects your opponent controls that trigger on a Successfully Played card take place. Opponent chooses the order. (This is where cards such as Over Sell Maneuver and Sustained Damage are played.)

8 Apply effects listed on the card, unless these effects take place ‘when played’ or ‘when this card is in’ a specified area.

COBRA is successful at step 6/6a, but the effect of Beware triggers at step 7a, and the text of COBRA (including the instruction to shuffle COBRA back into the Arsenal) occurs at step 8, after the search.

Does the bold text follow the "Once during each of your turns" requirement or is it active during the pre-match phase?

Neither restriction is present, so it should work whenever.

(Note:  I'm like 92.7% sure on the PM part, but Daeva can confirm or deny)
