WALTER is all about the Chops and getting maneuvers into your Ring. He does get an inherent weakness with a smaller than usual Handsize and the need to pull out the Chops to trigger the ability.

Therefore stun values would come into play for this deck, and no better way to get them than via Volley maneuvers. Quick wins can probably come from Backslides and Inside Cradles, while the burn will come from Nigel since reversing Chop + Strike will put both under it for burn 2.

-Everything can be played, with the Asterisks being free due to the Allegiance.
-Managed by Lita is the Draw engine required to boost your hand and Trending Worldwide (played as the last card) would be there for added hand bonus.
-Tech in a Bottle is there to search out something to play your first Chop with while Pyro is there to help get your first move through if possible.
-Blackpool, NXT UK title is there for the damage boost.
-MVP is probably Nigel as mentioned above. When Chop + strike is reversed, both will go under Nigel and whenever the opponent would attempt to play a maneuver, he has to overturn 2. The more he reverses, the more it would cost for him to play a maneuver, so chances are he would alternate between reversing and letting your maneuvers in so the most cost he has to pay is overturning 2.

Staple reversals, and packing, nothing special.

Fan-favourite Strikes are used because they generally have more stun value to draw off to boost your hand and draw into more Chops, while also acting as a backup to win games with Backslide or Inside Cradle.

Mostly for recovery.

The plan for fortitude gain is a bit wobbly, so Counter reversals were chosen since they will go to ring if reversed from arsenal.

Overall it is a very straightforward deck of drawing into Chops and playing them with Volley maneuvers to get the stun to get out another chop for the next turn. It's also a good way to cycle through your decks along with 5 Star General since you have 70 cards to go through.

Hope the decklist helps to get you started!
