BACKLASH DECK CONSTRUCTION:
Your Backlash Deck may contain a maximum of 8 cards. It may contain Pre-match cards and Superstar-specific Mid-match cards ONLY. All 8 cards may be Pre-match cards. If you play less than the maximum of 8 Pre-match cards, the remaining cards may be Superstar-specific Mid-match cards up to 8 cards total.

You may play up to 4 Pre-match cards during the Pre-match phase. You may not have more than 4 Mid-match cards in your Ring area at one time.

The Pre-match Phase looks like this:
1. Play a Pre-match Feud
2. Play a Pre-match Stipulation
3. Play a Pre-match Manager
4. Play any remaining Pre-match cards.

BANNED CARDS:
Fans Love an Underdog
I Aims Ta Be Startin’ Sump’tin
It’s Showtime!
All non-Superstar-specific Mid-match cards

Recent Changes:
8/1/16 It’s Showtime! is banned. My reasoning: It’s Showtime! makes Title Belts more or less pointless, further weakens Superstars with high Superstar value, and makes Pre-match less dynamic and less interesting. (Keep in mind Hold on! It’s not Showtime yet! is not in the format.)
