Building a deck for a potential new VC player. Looking for more opnions before I finalise and print it out.

Basically I tried Gut Wrench, FTTR, Irish Whip, Slingshots and they all didn't work because she had issues starting, and her 70 card arsenal just wasn't drawing enough reversals to trigger Legit Boss.

The idea of the deck is to have a strong recurring engine from TS&B and the 2 women belts. However, most games would rely on her specifics to do more of the carrying.

After many failed attempts, it seemed like reversing stuff from hand was the issue, and it wasn't helping that she had so many specifics. Thus, instead of banking (pun intended) on useful set-ups, we went with Monkey Flips and Dropkicks to maintain a healthy number of maneuvers, while lessening the slots in arsenal for more reversals.

The other issue that occurred for previous builds was how difficult it was to get started. Three Amigos could have helped, but the lack of reversals really stopped her from picking it up with Legit Boss. Therefore Counter Strike, Backlash, Lift a Boot, and the 1D hybrid reversals were added to get more 'free' fortitude. I gave up NXT Allegiance for Banned from Ringside, as she also had trouble starting fortitude, so tagging that with Great Technical Prowess at least helps to give her something to play.

I am partial on Tech in a Bottle, Most Dominant Women, 12 Years of Dedication and some of her specific actions so I'm looking for some feedback to swap them out, especially if it helps with the above 2 issues I e

Side note, I know OSCM was updated a bunch of times for the better, but Get Wrench being nerfed really affected her gameplay.

This is not by any means the most optimum build for Sasha,but since u r going the Technical route, I will keep it technical with some major changes.
Yr previous deck was missing alot of important cards especially for a dry whack aggro build. Counter productive to go counter route. No breaking grd for a dry whack deck is pretty dangerous somemore yr build was heel. Fort surge & one of the big boys are some other impt cards that were missing.

OSWM tb to speed up the game & force yr opponent to whack u as u previously mentioned tat was part of yr strategy.

Boston shld be a must pack, even playing a Technical  monkey flip as an action to make yr next technical multi is ok for yr build since exhausting your opponent reversals is a key part of yr deck.

Nv pack sky the limit as u are not really going to recycle yr Technical set ups.

Technical crab is there for bridging fort if u r behind. Yr previous build is 1 inside cradle away from losing if yr opponent went ahead of you in fort.

Went with face for mean gene package to faster force finish opponent sidewalk tb etc, seeing u went counter route,probably yr play grp have tons of vickie. Face are a better counter to vickie. Oso revo generally have more chances of reversing then the counters.

Tag belts/makin/winning side/finlay
Is up to u. Each have their use. I dun really like the belt because a bitter rivals/managed by vince/yr town will prevent u from playing them (especially true for yr previous build). So depend whether u nd the extra midmatch slot, a little deterrence to Hiac/ a harder to reverse specific recovery action/switcheroo defence for banned from rs, the choice is yours.

Tech splash/Tech Crab/Bear Hug/Body Lock
Since u will be going mean gene & Boston Tech MF, tech splash is actually ok in this oswm deck. But personally I prefer going for 3rd techical crab & tech bearhug or tech body lock instead since 8 monkey flip & 2 technical crab is more then enugh to bridge fort to higher fort technical moves so Technical slam is pretty redundant. So choose between some high flying or safer ground based submission, the choice is yours.

Again not the definite answer to Sasha, personally I feel it is ok at best. But at the very least u will have something to play everyturn.
