Commander's Brew Episode 221 - Niv-Mizzet Reborn

Restrictions breed creativity, and Niv-Mizzet Reborn has a built-in restriction in that it asks us to use as many guild-coloured spells as possible, to maximize his trigger upon entering the battlefield. Sean decided to go even further and brew up a deck that's primarily Abzan. That's right, we're "dropping" Niv's main colours! The Abzan core of the deck is a recursion-based package with lots of value, but we still get to take advantage of Niv's draw triggers by including colours that are technically in different guilds, but we'll be able to cast them with merely White, Black or Green mana. We're talking hybrids, split cards and Aftermath cards.
Take a look at the list below and let us know what you think! Are there any other hybrids you would have added instead?
