Beer drinkin' Home Comin' Sandman
« on: October 13, 2019, 09:55:07 AM »
Sooo... I recently experimented with Homecoming decks and sort of concluded the below.

Pros:
Able to add 1 card to hand every turn at 0 cost

Cons:
No backlash deck, so if your hand is discarded, you can only depend on your arsenal.
You are stuck with Fan Favourite, so no Shoot Forearms for hard to reverse maneuvers or Blindside Takedown to play from ringside after discarding.

Opportunities:
1. Superstars that can reduce damage taken so taking damage isnt as painful.
2. Superstars that can benefit from adding 1 card to their hand every turn to generate other effects.
3. Superstars with strong recovery to sponge through all the damage taken
4. Superstars that can reverse outside of playing reversals

Sandman sort of had a combination of 1, 2 and alittle of 3.
Firstly, his Backstage does allow him to play Struck by a Kendo Stick TB (SbaKS TB) every turn by discarding 1 and playing 1 card face down. This means he doesn't really have to care about how strong or weak his maneuvers are (something Homecoming maneuvers are)
Secondly, his backstage allows him to draw additional cards during his draw segment if he has lower hand. This will help him stay afloat from the hand destruction. ECW One Night Stand gives him extra draw power.
Thirdly, although he doesn't have access to Sustain Damage, he does get a -2D from ECW Title Belt TB and mayb another -1D from Immune to Pain TB.
Lastly, Ambassadors of Extreme has a crazy recovery effect and makes your SbaKS TB multi and +1Stun. I threw in Ready to Fights since I had the slot in backlash.

Note my decks are usually formed on the assumption that my opponent doesn't disrupt my pre-match. Feel free to change things up to your liking.
