And nope, now it is listed as canceled order. Hasbro as incompetent as ever.
Aargh. Was fine a few minutes ago. Suckers.
Was lucky and got mine through. Still shows as buy on my eBay page, so hopefully I actually get some cardboard crack …
I went to the eBay page of the toy store, went. To items for sale there. The gateway is just for the advertising crap on their store, go to the eBay.com pages directly, they hold up just fine. I was pre-logged-in, so only had to enter cc data. Whew. Lu…
Bummer indeed. I got lucky and mine went through.
That was totally unexpected outcome, right? /s submitted by /u/bboomslang to r/magicTCG [link] [comments]

Were you considering brewing for [[Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion]]? I certainly was not… Not at first. It wasn’t until after I thoroughly read over his effect and studied up on “Infinite Combat” did I realize that Neheb truly is worthy.
The strategy is simply: Attack, Rinse & Repeat. However, how best can we accomplish this? With this Primer, I figured out how. We run all the wheels, all the (best) extra combats and turns as well as a series of cards that will let us recur those effects to continue what I call “the assault.” We can and will damage out the board, but not without knowing what to look for. If you’ve been considering Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion let me know what you think about the list after a few hands! I can confidently say, [[Godo, Bandit Warlord]] has company now. Be on the lookout for video based primers over on The 99 very soon discussing this deck. To include: the core strategy, inclusions & exclusions as well as gameplay!

I hope you all are even a fraction as excited as I am. Niv is one of my absolute favorite characters in the lore, and I’m thrilled to get to play him at the helm of my favorite deck.
I’ve reworked the Food Chain Tazri primer for the new Niv.
I’ve also made a $700 budget build (as of 4/12/19).
and the wonderful Niv-Mizzet Discord
Recent list changes
Extract -> Sterling Grove: Since adding Entomb for Squee (an instant speed version of Extract), I’ve felt that I may have too many tutors for the cast-from-exiles (CFEs). Sterling Grove is a (great) hit off Niv, tutors Food Chain, protects FC (from Decay!) if it’s redundant, and can pivot to Necropotence or Remora.
Timetwister -> Vexing Shusher: Timetwister is very low synergy in the deck and is worse with more people abusing Smothering Tithe and wheel-steal in general. Happy to have Vexing Shusher in this high-interaction meta.
Swords to Plowshares -> Dovin’s Veto: New Veto is amazing, and Swords is currently the weakest piece of interaction in the list. Since Trophy’s printing, I’ve been preferring the more flexible removal options over dedicated creature removal.
Other multicolor considerations: Manamorphose, Wear//Tear, Treasured Find
Hydroid Krasis: The highest utility outlet, but not a hard outlet. Extra draw, even if overcosted, is welcome on a combo piece. When comboing, cast this first to draw your deck on a cast trigger, and Silence/counter to protect subsequent hard outlet execution.
Circu, Dimir Lobotomist: A hard outlet. Its value case is fairly memey, but he’s relevantly a 2/3 and exile-mill is a more solid win condition than graveyard-mill by Hallimar Excavator.
Sparkcaster: PEW PEW PEW. Not much more to say about infinite burn as a hard outlet stapled to a 5/3.
Sawtooth Loon: A soft outlet that sees more cards. A great budget alternative to Hydroid Krasis. To win with LabMan, use Niv to pull out your multicolor cards, Loon to cycle them back into the deck and redraw them with Niv. Cycling this draws and empties the library.
Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain: Another soft outlet, probably worse than Hydroid Krasis. Good value interaction with Squee.
Balefire Liege: The next best hard outlet. Fairly clunky.
Comparison to Tazri
No verdict on superiority. Tazri and the allies are forwardly more castable than Niv and his outlets, which on the very surface is the more powerful thing for a fast, aggressive deck that needs very minimal mana. The most important interaction being playing out the 2 mana allies for later Food Chain mana; secondarily, Tazri tutors allies to improve Consultation odds and is a solid aggro-soak as a 3/4.
It’s unclear if the extra utility of Niv and his pieces outweighs the specific castability upside Tazri and the allies have, but as new multicolor cards get printed, Niv has the potential to get progressively stronger.
Happy spoiler season!
Hey Brewers, You interested in red heads? Maybe that’s too broad… How bout high-flying, card drawing red-headed Captains? Well then, do we have a Commander for you. The 99 | Part One | Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain – Strategy & Combos Join Ernesto…
Today isn’t only our season 3 premiere. We are also debuting a new series
Better Know a Combo
In this series, we look to explain combos that you might encounter in the wild. For each combo we explore in this series, we’re going to be explaining:
1) What does the combo look and sound like when someone executes it?
2) What are the steps and actions that have to be executed to complete the combo?
3) How can you react to the combo at each point where you receive priority?
4) How can you prevent the combo from happening in the first place?
What’s your favourite commander or archetype to run Kiki comobos in? Do you have any super secret tech that makes the combo more resilient to the types of interaction and prevention we reviewed in the video?
We’d love your feedback!
This is still a pretty new concept for us, because we don’t usually release non-gameplay content. Do you have any recommendations that would make this video more accessible or more useful to the people who might want to watch it?
Do you have any combos you’d like to see explained? Hit us up in the comments below.
Legendary Creature — Homunculus
When Fblthp, the Lost enters the battlefield, draw a card. If it entered from your library or was cast from your library, draw two cards instead.
When Fblthp becomes the target of a spell, shuffle Fblthp into its owner’s library.
Nope, it won‘t. Never believe strangers on the internet 😉
Over 40 creatures and low on instant speed interaction, as I play an all permanents list. This and emergence zone are two more ways to easily give flash to creatures, so it enables more interactive play for me without being a dead card like Vedalken Or…
Probably because there are tons of cards you could say the same about and the banlist would not be manageable …
Tibalt has no friends.
Play it. With a straight face. If they are scared that you have it, that’s the second best thing to actually having it. Control is as much stalling and bluffing as it is actually countering stuff. You only care about really important stuff anyway. And hey, remember: there is no threat without at least some action, so every now and then, even if it might not be the very best target, still counter something. Just because. Keep them on the edge.
You only live for the puppy eyes asking you for approval.
We still could run [[Balefire Liege]] at 5 CMC as another resilient wincon that reacts to on-cast and not etb (so isn’t switched off as easy as the Sparkcaster). But 5 CMC makes AN even worse.
I personally will probably go for Niv, if only because it’s Niv. Love that dude. And dragons are awesome anyway. Gives me a big splashy commander in cEDH, not one of those punly little humanoids that usually show up 😉
