These decks look AMAZING. Any idea where can I pick them up? I heard that there were some issues with his Kickstarter but being a new collector I'm not too sure what's totally going on. Heard that it was something to do with international shipping being expensive for small purchases? Not too sure though!

But all in all they look great and if anyone is planning to sell them I wouldn't mind buying!

You can find them on Ebay pretty easily.
Many people try to take advantage of the fact that Erik has been so poor at business.
But, there is a set up right now for pretty reasonable.

Me I am still hoping I actually receive my pledge rewards. Before I break down and buy one from Ebay.

Welcome to the hobby/addiction and welcome to UC. Here's a quick summary of what happened with these decks: Tuck box production issues delayed these decks and cost more than what Erik anticipated, plus he poorly managed his Kickstarter funds. The decks finally got manufactured and shipped to his fulfillment center, but Erik ran out of money, couldn't pay for shipment, and the decks literally just sat in the warehouse waiting to be shipped for over a year. In the meantime, Erik offered empty promises and excuses the few times he bothered to post updates, but basically put his head in the sand feeling sorry for himself and ignored his backers for a year and a half. It ultimately took organization of a civil lawsuit to finally spur Erik into action and do what he should have done right from the start, which was to take out a loan and finish his obligations to his backers.

Hang in there buddy, stay off of eBay - all remaining orders should be shipped out by the end of next week and you should be getting your pledge reward shortly.

Just to re-word Sinjin's self-deprecating statement there;
Should-have-been wrote:It ultimately took until Sinjin7 organized a civil lawsuit before Erick was spurred into action.

Many of us owe a debt of thanks to Sinjin7 in this matter. Whilst Erik may have eventually got off his a*se and finally done something, it was sinjin7's work (with support of many members here) who got this done, now.

Thanks again sinjin7!

Seems like 2 years since the Kickstarter, quite sad that such a design went to waste due to poor management though! I don't buy from eBay mainly due to trust issues, had some bad experiences getting non-card related stuff on the site I've avoided it like the plague.

If it's any consolation, I have had mostly really good experiences buying cards off eBay, only a few decks that weren't as advertised, and have always had good luck with returns/exchanges. Sometimes ebay is the only place to get some decks, but communities like this and Aethercards generally will offer a much more reliable and personal marketplace. This deck was plagued by a series of negative turns and bad choices, but things look like they are finally on track, you shouldn't have too much trouble picking a set up here soon.
Kickstarter completely revolutionized the way I waste money...

For the record, still radio silence. No tracking number or notice that anything has been sent. The wait continues.

Same here, but I remain hopeful. I have quite a large pledge coming and can't wait to add them to my rebuilding effort.

Hello Endblade. I was on sabbatical when you joined so first and foremost, Welcome.

When I get my pledge in I will have quite a few extras as I pledged for this at the height of my addiction.... er collecting. I'm never interested in jacking up the prices so will be selling my extras at Kickstarter cost. I'll drop you a PM when I finally get them and if you still need some, I'd be glad to help.

Well, something is happening on my end at least. I got a tracking number earlier today for my order. No ETA on its arrival as it only indicates the shipping label was made.

Edit: And it's here!

Package came in today! Everything was accounted for. But...

1. The decks were supposed to be signed but weren't (expected after reading what other members received).
2. The cello on one of the decks was messed up.

However, I'm not going to worry about any of that... Just glad the project is over. :ugdance: :ugdance:

These arrived today.

I will be selling all of these as well as my other Erik Mana decks in the sales section if anyone wants them.

I have no use for this crap in my collection.

Still no tracking..... but the decks arrived today. Not signed but I also expected this. Also, With my order was packed another members. This was expected but the signature editions have the numbers swapped. Mine was to be 63/100 but I got the other guys. The numbers are correct, just swapped. I see no way to fix this as they have the matching halo seal that can't be removed. I expected this as well because I saw a post in the comments section much the same. All in all I like the cards. They are beautiful. I haven't opened any or looked too closely but so far so good. Thanks Sinjin for "greasing the wheels of progress so to speak.
