5…4…3…2…1…

Welcome to Raw is Wheelo!

Hey everyone! Sorry for the lack of updates as of late. Unfortunately I was rather sick during the week and was unable to provide any of updates I was hoping to bring you. So to make up for it, and since it is Monday now, I decided why not give everyone a look into the deck I’ve been testing over the last few days, and give you a little WWE nostalgia to boot. Seriously, look at this list and tell me it doesn’t bring the image of the ayatollah of rock and rolla directly into your mind. I dare you!

What Are We Trying to Accomplish?

So at its core, this deck is your standard Orange Retribution deck. We’re leveling, we’re moving drills all over the place, we’ve got value pouring out of our ears, and we’re making our opponent sad that they weren’t also playing Orange after seeing the ridiculous things we are doing.

But! We are also a Wheelo Deck. So mill is also a big foundation of our strategy. Bicycle Kick loops with Torching, Crashing and Check-Up feel so good in this list. Plus our level 3 and 4 increase our mill, making the clock tick down much faster than your opponent may be ready for.

We also get the ability to tell our opponent when it is and is not okay to play events thanks to Dr. Wheelo’s Revival. This on top of 3x VES means that cards like Unleashed should hopefully be a pretty useless card for our opponent to try and capitalize on.

And finally, we’re a physical beat-down deck. That’s right! This brains got hands!! Seriously, with several of our drills increasing our stage damage on top of Distracting Drill and a mess of +5 attacks, he puts the hurt on quick!

Things to Consider When Playing this Deck

Like many Orange Retribution lists, sequencing is everything. A mistimed level change could interrupt Bicycle Kick chains, reset your damage modifiers and be a terrible time in general. The main goal is not to go into combat without a game plan. Luckily, Orange is one of the safest styles to cruise around with thanks to Check Up and the plethora of ways to get it in and out of play, so you have some room for error.

Another thing to think about is while a lot of our attacks can dish out damage once we are up and running, we don’t do a ton in the early game, nor when our board is empty. Thanks to Retribution Mastery however, we are able to jump from level 1 to 2 in literally 2 actions if our opponent has no interaction for our anger. Big Brain’s ability to set our anger to 3 with our first action in the game is a god-send for this deck. Once we are on Level 2 we are ready to rock with +2 life cards for each attack and a mill for our opponent’s trouble each time we block. Again, this deck cranks up the clock fast!

If you have been looking for a fun list to play in Orange, and don’t want to play a mainstream MP, Wheelo’s got you covered!

FanZ Will Never, Ever Be the Same Again!

And there you have it! The Y2W problem has presented itself. Do you think you’re man enough to handle it?

Hopefully all the roadblocks are finally out of the way and I’ll be able to deliver on some of the content I have been planning on. A few people reached out with the idea of some guest writers during my illness. If anyone is interested in doing some guest writing, please feel free to reach out to me on Facebook and I’d be happy to discuss the idea. This isn’t a guarantee that you’ll be on the blog, but if you’ve got an article idea I haven’t touched on yet, I just might be willing to give the reins over for a few minutes.

Until next time, FanZaHolics!
