Keith Lee
« on: August 11, 2021, 07:01:43 AM »
Keith Lee is pretty versatile and easy to operate, so this is just something I feel new players can pick up and run on the spot.
I have a couple of builds for him, so I'll probably use this thread to post them whenever I get the chance.

The idea for the Pre-match is to run the 10 cards in order, and then choose between Big Boys and Flanked by Security. Big Boys is just to avoid those Pesky Powerslams and Overshot your Mark, while Flanked is there to protect your Grizzly Magnum from getting moved out of your hand. Bad Blood is there to pick up Grizzly Magnum which would be your important card to start the game with.

Limitless ACE is best used at lower fortitude, it would be good to be conscious of your opponent's fortitude, and also plucking your Ring cards for its ACE effects.

The idea of the Mid-match is to run 3 The Sex the Gods since you are going to ACE your Limitless a lot. The ACE is also helpful in getting the most out of Insurrextion too. The Throw into the Corner Turnbuckle is there to be played for Series of Punches. Limitless Leegion is really just there to combo off a quick Flying Clothesline in case your opponent doesn't have early game High Risk reversals.

For the maneuvers, the deck consisted of mainly Punch related cards to activate of A Puncher's Chance whenever possible. As Bask in Glory recovers non-hybrid stuff, I avoided Rapid Fire Punch and Dynamic Hooks. Once you get Magnum in, your Punch cards are mostly free for play. Use Limitless ACE to pick up the Punch from Ring / Ringside to play every turn. A nice combo would be to play Left/Right Cross Punch, Bury the corresponding for Bask, and then search for it with that played Left/Right Cross Punch.

The actions are clear-cut. Technical Bear Hug is there for infinite RFG recovery, while Cavalry and the specific is there for Ringside recovery. Vengeance is there for Bad Blood.

The reversal section is just filled with standard packs and nothing much. With the amount of RFG recovery, it would also make sense to replace the Counter reversals (and No Sell) with Revolution of the Mind x 3 and another reversal so they can be RFGed from Ring, and then recovered again.

Hope the decklist helps to get you started!
