Mondays aren't usually too good for me, I probably won't be available until close to midnight your time.  I should be free Tuesday or Wednesday for most of the afternoon or evening.

We were going to do this past Thursday, but I was running a little late all day, and didn't see him on, not sure if I missed him or what.

So, for those who don't know, I'm back in school aiming for a nursing program at Arizona State University.  Interestingly enough you posted this just in time for me to read it before I head to my Pathophysiology class to learn about diseases and how they affect the body.  We talked about colds, flu, and pneumonia (which apparently I still need a spell checker to get right) a week or two ago.  And the urgent care doctor is clearly an idiot.  Based on what you're saying, and my notes it sounds like you had a flu that your body wasn't able to fight off fast enough, which caused pneumonia.  That's where the change in the cough and the difficulty of breathing changed over. 
Know what doesn't help against the flu virus and viral pneumonia? Antibiotics. 
Antibiotics treat bacteria, which could become an issue with pneumonia, but by the time that happens you should be in a hospital.   They do absolutely nothing to viruses.  So yeah, based on information available to a pre-nursing student, that doctor is an idiot.

Fortunately my class was today, and my instructor (who has a doctorate in nursing and has worked as a nursing instructor) is usually pretty good about answering health care related questions.  So I gave him a really brief run down of what you said and asked if you should be reporting them to anyone.  He said you can certainly do that, but the effort you have to put forth wouldn't really be worth what would come out of it to file a report to medical agencies.  The review might be a good idea though, and telling people you're close to in the area to avoid those places is probably warranted, as well as not going to see them again.

Sorry, with it being midterm time I forgot about trying to get the game in, I can try tonight but its unlikely.  If I can't get it in feel free to give me the loss and move on, I should be able to get the next game in still since midterm is wrapping up.

Something came up and today probably isn't going to happen, I'm going to try for tomorrow about an hour later, but if that doesn't work out I'll give up the round and hopefully by in for the next.

The first sentence just lets you pack 5 Foreign Object cards in your backstage, which you reveal and shuffle into your Arsenal at the end of the prematch phase.
The part about Terry Funk's ability allows you to pick up a Foreign Object from your ringside instead of using one in your hand when you use your ability.

Terry Funk
Starting Hand Size: 6     Superstar Value: 4
Extremist Legend Ability: When your first card played on your turn is a maneuver with 'classic' in the title, you may also immediately play a Foreign Object without 'reversed' in the text from hand; unless both cards are reversed, your turn continues.
You can pack No Sell Maneuver, but you cannot pack Managers, There is No Escape, or Everything and the Kitchen Sink. Your Foreign Objects are not Heel or Raw.
V8

So when you use your ability, when your first card is a 'classic' maneuver you can also play a Foreign Object from either hand or ringside, assuming you meet the other requirements.

The Lion's Den Match     (+Steve Blackman & Owen Hart logos)
Pre-match Stipulation
Cannot be blanked.
Non-Unique non-Superstar-specific non-maneuver cards and card effects from non-Unique non-Superstar-specific non-Stipulation cards (except Volley This!) cannot move cards from any Ringside.
When you successfully play a maneuver, shuffle up to 1 maneuver from Ringside into your Arsenal.
F: 0     D: 0     Unique     Permanent

No, those maneuver's can't.  Only Unique, Superstar-specific, maneuver cards, and effects from Unique, Superstar-specific, Stipulations can move cards. (And Volley This!)
Unless I'm reading it wrong, which is always possible.

I was really hoping this would be a good one, since I was actually able to be there, and I was pretty happy with it.  I really don't think Naomi is ready to be at the top, not saying she never can be, but she's really sloppy with everything but her punches and kicks.  Also I think they did the best thing they could have with the Nikki vs. Natalya match, that place would've imploded if Nikki lost outright.  Scottsdale is right outside Phoenix where the show was, even though at one point they said Tucson.
In all I think this was mostly a positive experience, no one looked like they got away completely unscathed and almost everything was worth watching.

Including JBL's loss to the entrance ramp.

I could be mistaken, but both would still be affected.  They are still reversal cards, and neither the timing breakdown nor the cards in question state that the effect of Gut Wrench ends before the reversal would be played.

I put in what I could (probably a little more than that actually) for a poor college student.  Best of luck with this, no one should have this problem, especially someone devoted to helping people.

In general a word is not considered to rhyme with itself.  An example of two cards that rhyme would be From the Top Rope and Dean Ambrose's reversal Nope!

Basically two different words that end with the same sound rhyme.

 After the Superstars are revealed, the Pre-match phase begins.  This is the only time you can play Pre-match cards.  They are played alternately, starting with the Superstar with the highest Superstar Value.  You cannot have more than 5 Pre-match cards in your Ring area.  The Pre-match phase ends when both players pass consecutively during step 5 of the Pre-match phase.

  The Pre-match Phase looks like this:
  1. Play a Pre-match Venue
  2. Play a Pre-match Feud
  3. Play a Pre-match Stipulation
  4. Play a Pre-match Manager
  5. Play any remaining Pre-match cards
  6. Draw your Hand Size
  7. End of Pre-match Phase

From the rulebook.  So with cards that trigger At the End of the Prematch phase go after you draw your hand.  This is not the same as your Draw Phase though, that doesn't happen until the normal turn process does, which is after the End of Pre-Match phase.

In the case of Wake up! you would draw your starting hand (8 cards assuming your opponent doesn't modify your hand size).  Then when you choose to finalize Wake Up!'s effects you would draw to a total of 12 cards, then put 2 on the bottom.

Here's a link to the original website which includes links to the rulebook and tournament floor rules:
http://www.comicimages.com/rawdeal/rules/index.htm

And here's one for the rules forums here which includes links to the OmniFaq which will answer a lot of questions about specific cards and interactions:

Hope that helps!

Note: I don't think the Allegiance cards existed during the print run of the game, they're the first part of the Pre-Match phase.

I'm pretty sure I have the answer to this right, but I just want to be 100% certain, and I couldn't find if anyone asked this yet.

If I'm Bray Wyatt and I activate my ability, reducing a maneuver's damage low enough, can I then use something like Elbow to the Face to reverse it?

If I'm reading the timing breakdown right this would work, my damage reduction would take place immediately before the step where I would attempt to play a reversal due to the way the ability is worded.

Bray Wyatt
Starting Hand Size: 6     Superstar Value: 3
Superstar Ability:  When your opponent plays a card, you may remove 1 reversal in your hand from the game, and his card is -4D.
You cannot pack Ring Psychology: Arm or Beg For Mercy.

MMA Combat Card Game / Re: Best card layout?
« on: September 16, 2015, 07:53:24 PM »
I think that background looks pretty good, but I might suggest a slightly different color for those green bars.  I find that I have a hard time paying attention to the rest of the card because I find that contrast with the neon green a little distracting.

Or it could be a reduction from being played after a set up or another maneuver.

Also, going back to get Creed's bonus points from the Cesaro backstage card, I believe they're all Technical moves.  Regal has Technical Stomp, Cesaro has Technical Slam, and I think the Bulldog has Technical Crab.

Deck Reviews - Classic / Re: John Cena
« on: June 05, 2015, 10:13:55 PM »
Well, looking at it (and losing to it in Allentown last week),  He uses stuff like Poke, Shake, Boot Lace, and Pump Kick to get off the ground and so manages without most of the Bash pre-match.  Most of what he played against me in the Pre-Match came before the events phase.  And since I had lower SS Value (Tommy Dreamer), he threw Vince, then Yo Kill Da Beat! and that locked me out of everything in my Pre-Match but the ECW cards I was using.  That wasn't crippling, but it did hurt a bit.  The match honestly didn't go long enough for him to hit 12 Rounds so I can't speak to that, but I can say I've seen, and played using, a lot a superstars who rely on a heavy Pre-Match.

My thinking with the Pre-Match thing is kinda two fold.  Many Superstars can play out a full 12 Pre-Match cards, and some decks are built around needing all of them in play.  A card that, by itself, can prevent this can render your entire deck nearly unplayable in some circumstances, and severely weakened in most.  If you build the deck you're prepared for it, if you know someone's using it in advanced you can set yourself up with a work around, if neither of these are true you may well be left out in the cold.  The card itself may not be a huge problem, it's just the fact that you have no recourse when it appears.

As a solution, I don't know that it necessarily needs to be completely removed or disabled.  But I think that a way of dealing with it would be a good thing.  Even if I have to give up something, like Pre-Match slots, or limiting how many pre-match I can play (even free ones) might not be a bad way to go.

Priceless (matthardynotdie) (2-2) was just too expensive for The Last Outlaw(1-3) to steal one from.
