2nd OCTGN Frankenstein Tournament
« on: July 09, 2021, 01:22:52 PM »
The next OCTGN Raw Deal tournament will be a Frankenstein tournament, with a live draw at an as yet undetermined time.

Frankenstein tournaments work a bit differently than a standard event. Rather than selecting a superstar directly, players will be constructing decks with a given Superstar and Backstage, a different superstar's Backlash specifics, and a third superstar's Arsenal specifics. These three superstar assignments will be made with the assistance of a randomizer.

1 ) The player will receive a choice of two random superstars; they will use the selected superstar's face card and any Backstage cards. Note that this is specifically the superstar you are given: The Second Coming's logo does not appear on World Tour 05, so he does not receive permission to pack those.

2 ) The player may reject both options; if they do, they will be given the next superstar off the top of the deck. They MUST use that superstar, and cannot revert back to one of the rejected options.

3 ) This process will repeat for Backlash, and finally for Arsenal. Again, at any stage, a player may decline their two choices, but they will be locked into the next choice off the top of the deck, sight unseen. As before, you receive only those cards with that superstar's logo; The 8th Wonder of the World TB only allows the packing of Giant Braintrust in the Arsenal, not all Andre cards.

4 ) The player will then build a standard Virtual Classic deck using these specifics instead of the specifics normally packed by their Superstar. This applies to any superstar with blanket packing permissions from an Ability, as well: The People's Champ, who normally may pack cards with the Rock logo, may not do so unless the player chooses The Rock in another draw. HOWEVER, any superstar card that gives specific packing permission for individual cards may pack that card, and any non-Ability packing permissions are allowed. Nidia is specifically permitted to pack Tough Enough in her ability; she may do so. She may also pack Jamie Noble-specific non-maneuver, non-Backstage cards except Nidia Interferes, due to the text on Jamie Noble is in My Corner. Cards referencing NAMED SUPERSTAR-specific cards will apply only to Superstar-specifics for the named superstar, so a card referencing Goldberg-specific cards will only interact with Goldberg-specific cards.

5 ) Any superstars not chosen will be returned to the randomizer deck for other players' consideration, however once a superstar has been chosen for any of a player's three slots, that superstar cannot be assigned again.

6 ) For fairness, if a player receives only superstar options with 0 or 1 card in the given zone, they may discard both options and receive a new set of options; however, this replacement will not apply if the player has chosen the random topdeck option. Similarly, for fairness, Gail Kim & Molly Holly will be a valid selection for SUPERSTAR ONLY, and MVP will be a valid selection for SUPERSTAR AND ARSENAL ONLY. Should one of those superstars be drawn for an invalid zone, they will be replaced for free.

7 ) Players present at the live draw will draft in the order of their signup in this thread; anyone who cannot be present can make arrangements for a draw at a mutually agreeable time after the live draw is complete.

8 ) Selections are public knowledge, and will be reported here when the draw is complete.

As announced over in the Discord, the following revisions to Superstar cards and specifics might require consideration when deciding on a deck, so we are spoiling these changes early. These are not the only revisions to come, but they are the most salient for Frankenstein deck construction.

Starting Hand Size: 5     Superstar Value: 2
Superstar Ability:  Your Maximum Hand Size is 5, and it is +1 for each non-hybrid non-reversal maneuver in your Ring.
When your opponent successfully plays a card, you may draw 1 card.  At the end of any player’s turn, when the number of cards in your hand is greater than your Maximum Hand Size, put cards equal to the difference from your hand on the bottom of your Arsenal.  When your turn ends without attempting to play a maneuver, those cards are discarded instead.

Jack Swagger
Starting Hand Size: 8     Superstar Value: 2
Superstar Ability:  When you successfully play a maneuver, reveal the top card of your opponent's Arsenal.  When it is a maneuver, search your Arsenal for 1 non-Superstar-specific maneuver, reveal it, put it in your hand, and shuffle.  When it is an action or an antic, draw 1 card.  When it is a non-hybrid reversal, remove it from the game, and after damage has been applied by your maneuver, end your turn.
When your maneuver is successful, RFG the top card of your opponent's Arsenal. When that card is a maneuver, Arsenal Search 1 non-Superstar-specific maneuver without "reverse" in the text.  When it is an action or an antic, draw 1 card. When your Superstar-specific Pre-match card would be moved from your Ring, you may instead move 1 other Pre-match card in your Ring.

The Sexy Beast
Starting Hand Size: 6     Superstar Value: 5
Huge Rock Star Ability: You may pack I Have a Major Announcement in your Backstage Area, but you may not pack it in your Backlash. It is not Fan Favorite, and it cannot be blanked; at the end of the Pre-match phase, put that card in your Ring, ignore the 'You cannot play...' text, and the number of cards discarded to shuffle is reduced to 0.
Your opponent resolves first at the end of the Pre-match phase, regardless of Superstar Value.
You may pack Chris Jericho cards.

New Age Outlaws
Starting Hand Size: 4     Superstar Value: 4
Tag Team Superstar Ability:  Once during each of your turns, when you have 5+ lower Fortitude, you may RFG 4 Hand cards, and when your next card played this turn is a non-Unique maneuver, it is blank for the rest of the turn and can only be reversed from Arsenal.
You can pack B.A. Billy Gunn and/or Road Dogg cards, except Rico Enters!; they are not Smackdown. You cannot pack any Title Belts except the Tag Team title belts; you cannot pack Corners or 'blank', 'brass', 'parts', or 'ring psychology' cards.

The Rockers
Starting Hand Size: 6     Superstar Value: 2
WWF Tag Team Superstar Ability: Each turn, your first Strike or Grapple played after successfully played maneuver is instead a High Risk, Multi, and +3D.
Your Perennial Fan Favorites are Superstar-specific.
You can pack High-Flying Style, Tag action cards, and Tag maneuver cards; those cards are Multi.  You may not pack any Title Belts except the Tag Team Title Belts.

The Heart Break Hotel
Pre-match Event
Cannot be blanked. Can be played during the Venue phase
Before each of your Draw Segments, reveal your bottom Arsenal card. When it is a High Risk, put it into your hand; when it is not, shuffle it into your Arsenal and draw 1- cards.

F: 0     D: 0     Unique     WWF Classic logo     Permanent

Kairi Sane
Starting Hand Size: 7     Superstar Value: 2
Superstar Ability: Once per turn, when your maneuver is reversed you may RFG 1 Backlash card; if you do, do not draw for Stun Value, and then continue your turn.
Your Ax Kick is F: 0, +2D, and Unique.
You can pack High-Flying Style and Tree of Woe Double Stomp, and Unique Multi maneuvers, but you cannot pack Evening Gown Match or maneuvers that are Chain, Heat, or Volley.

Becky Lynch
Starting Hand Size: 6     Superstar Value: 1
NXT Diva Superstar Ability: When you successfully play a card with 'precision' in the title, put up to 2 non-reversal cards from your Ringside on the bottom of your Arsenal.
When you have equal or lower Fortitude, your maneuvers with 'precision' in the title are considered Unique for your opponent's cards and effects.
You cannot pack Dynamically Inclined.

Unstoppable Forces of Nature
Backstage Card Pre-match Event
Cannot be blanked.
Arsenal / Ringside Search 10- "Splash" cards and put them under this card.  At the end of the Pre-match phase, put 1 of those cards into your hand and shuffle the cards under this card into your Arsenal.
Do not discard or move Superstar-specific cards from your Ring for reversals to your Activated Card Effects.
Once during each of your turns, you may reveal 1 "Splash" card in your hand, and then Bury it and your opponent Buries 1 Hand card.
F: 0     D: 0     Unique     Permanent     RMS logo     WWF Classic logo
