It is difficult to believe but we are actually still receiving stock on Festivus. I thought it was a Stat Holiday by now. Despite the solemnity of this day, the UPS truck still stopped off and gave us a trove of fun and exciting goodies. No Nanaimo Bars though.

Adventure Time Card Wars: Ice King vs Marceline by Cryptozoic
The fastest-selling trading card game of 2014 is expanding… again! This time, the Ice King and his IcyLands deck take on Marceline’s dark and crafty Useless Swamps & NiceLands deck. The excitement is mounting, as players speculate on the direction in which the first all-new Landscape will take.
IcyLands Creatures are all about attacking directly. They would prefer to avoid attacking other Creatures. One way they can find some clear Lanes to attack down is through Frozen tokens – an all-new addition to the game. Through various means, these chilling tokens can be placed onto your opponent’s Landscapes. Opponents will find playing Creatures onto Frozen Landscapes rather difficult. Where the Ice King finds an opening, he will strike as hard as a blizzard!
Marceline’s deck is a Useless Swamps & NiceLands deck. This is the first time that NiceLands has been paired with another Landscape type, and the chemistry is going to burn hot! The Useless Swamp side of the deck is themed around denial, discard, and dirty tricks. Some of the Useless Swamp Creatures are willing victims to your dark tidings. When they go, they leave a lot of destruction in their wake.
