Virtual Holiday: Then, Now, Forever
« on: December 13, 2019, 03:52:37 PM »
This holiday we will be releasing a small set of 16 cards with 3 new Superstars with the theme of past, present and future.

Stayed tuned over the next two weeks for spoilers and goodies to celebrate the holiday season.

While our images are still being worked on, here is the first text spoiler for the Superstar of the past.

JIM CORNETTE

Starting Hand Size: 2+     Superstar Value: 1+
WWF/WCW Superstar Ability: Your first action played each turn, and actions in your Arsenal and Ringside are Chain. During your turn, when your opponent has 4- cards in hand and he would discard for the Chain trait, he may overturn that many cards instead.
You may pack 1 Jim Cornette-specific Enforcer in your Backstage Area; when you reveal your Superstar card, reveal 1 Enforcer card and choose 1 Enforcer.

Playtesting is still underway on these upcoming releases, so cards are subject to change.

Are we going to get a "Sami Callahan, Joey Ryan, or... Luchasaurus?" Enforcer?

 ;)

Nope. Despite many wanting James E Cornette wanting to have some flavour with his current podcast persona and social media attitude, he is going to be a Classic 80s/90s representation.

He actually likes lucha-saurus and the other two ain't wrestlers anyway :)

All of the people on his enforcers are either in the hall of fame, or belong there
Thanks to the much hated Revolution Format and Roman Reigns' spear I beat three other folks to be your current Raw Deal Champion and the "most irrelevant one in history" ...yay me :)

I can see a WCW Enforcer and a WWF Enforcer. I'm not a WCW guy but in the WWF he managed Vader, Yokozuna, Bulldog and Owen.

Haha i know & probably is along these wwf stars. Haha but still would be awesome is midnight express made it to raw deal cos i dun think the heavenly bodies or big baba rogers(big boss man) will make it to raw deal. Keepin my fingers crossed for midnight, although highly unlikely

Looking forward to the set! New deck building cards sound exciting. Hoping for something meta changing.

I should correct myself: He never managed Yoko, he was simply his "American Spokesperson".

I am very tempted to build him multiple times. That way I can have a Midnight Express and a Yokozuna and Owen Hart tag team deck. I didn't realize how badly I wanted those until they suddenly became an option.

There's 2 'Discard' on the pre match.

I like TNF 1.0 though 😏

Original design idea for the set was to represent the ghost of Christmas Past, Present and Future. Taking the approach we are with the title it's more suitable for WWE, but the idea is still there. The third name is an "up and coming" Superstar.

So "forever" will be an NXT guy, I guess. Had the hope for Ruby Riott. A set build around the Riott Squad could be badass. But, maybe in the future.  ;)
Beware, take care. Because the freaks come out at night!!!

Just in time for Liv Morgan to get a makeover...just can't win in Raw Deal lol

I'm a fan of the Then, Now, Forever theme. There's a pretty big divide between wanting older wrestlers (nostalgia) and current guys (despite Raw and SD being terrrrrrrible shows) with both sides showing equal passion and support. This is a way to suit everyone.

Lacey Evan's continues this week's card spoilers for the newest set. This along with her ability will have you dusting off some old cards.
