Urza's Incubator


As Urza's Incubator enters the battlefield, choose a creature type.

Creature spells of the chosen type cost less to cast.

Urza's Incubator would be a good include

Dominaria Remastered Gave me a couple of goodies! Also I made some subs to favor early game power of the deck rather than greeding the later game. CEDH decks are powerful because they are fast. I want UNESH to play as fast as possible.

I updated the version of Urza's Incubator and High Tide because they have foil prints now! Now just waiting for foil prints of Enigma Thief, Riddlemaster Sphinx, and Fierce Guardianship to have a full foil deck!!

I put Sphinx of Lost Truths back in for Sphinx of Clear Skies because it feels better to draw the 3 cards right away rather than waiting for the attack, even if you do have to discard 3 after.

Vexing Sphinx instead of Argent Sphinx due to lower mana cost, early survivability, and card draw that isn't necessarily reliant on UNESH being in play. Further testing needed to see if the discard from vexing sphinx hurts too much or not.

Mystic Remora instead of Kefnet's Monument. Kefnet's monument always feels too slow for what it is actually doing. It is clearly the lowest powered artifact in the deck. In the two turns waiting to play Kefnets monument, Mystic Remora could draw you several cards. These cards could be the difference between winning or losing, being able to ramp in to UNESH or not, having an additional answer faster than you would otherwise. I had a personal crutch with Kefnet's monument because it fit the theme. However Mystic Remora is the clearly stronger card (and has a foil print for the very first time).

heads up as it is getting reprinted, Urza's Incubator is at a low price at the moment if you want to splurge a little it is a very nice addition to the deck. Replaced Thought Vessel with it and it feel great.

Urza's Incubator is getting a reprint for Dominaria Remastered. Have you ever considered it for a slot in this deck? I'm not sure what it'd replace as the closest is probably Herald's Horn or Pearl Medallion both of which I think perform a little better for different reasons.

I love a good tribal deck, and this list is very emblematic of all I like about mono-white.

I was reading the comment above about good 1-drops in white, and for me Reconnaissance is the staple in this situation. I only learned last year that beyond the obvious perk of retreating creatures from combat, it can be triggered after combat damage, effectively giving all you creatures Vigilance.

Just like you, I love having Caged Sun in mono-white. It grants the possibility to hold back cards and make a big play at a strategic time. For this deck I would definitely see a Urza's Incubator, is it something you would consider?

How do I keep forgetting about the existence of Settle the Wreckage? This time I took notes.

I see awesome creatures, but very large mana cost creatures, and not too much on tricking them into play. If you're not careful you could be looking forward to mostly doing one creature per turn and opponents pick them off too easily after tapping all that mana.

Try adding Semblance Anvil or Urza's Incubator to further reduce these large mana costs.

I see your Leyline of Anticipation. There's also Quicksilver Amulet and Dragon Arch. This would let you slip them into play whenever is best and preferably those creatures with interesting ETB effects.

Sphynx's are often neglected creatures in magic, it's nice to see someone giving them attention.

Hi MilesHiles,

Thank you for checking out my list and the +1. Superfriends definitely isn't my flavor as i'm something of a Vorthos but it appears we may have some really interesting Planeswalker options coming in the near future that I may want to integrate into this deck (i'm still giddy over Ajani). As for your question about Urza's Incubator, back in Modern Horizons 2 Wotc "retconned" roughly 225 creatures to have the subtype "Phyrexian" in addition to their other types. If you want to read my thoughts on the subject you can click on my deck update titled A "New" Phyrexian Tribe. The update also has the full list of creatures that are now Phyrexians if you would like a reference guide.

To put things more succinctly - with the exception of Grateful Apparition, every creature in this deck has the "Phyrexian" subtype. So when I play Urza's Incubator, I name Phyrexian and that will apply to (almost) every creature in the deck - yes including Atraxa as well. Note - Grateful Apparition's inclusion is only temporary. I wait with baited breath on a new creature to be printed who is hopefully mono white, has Proliferate, and Infect on it's body with good stats - something of a Mono-white Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon if you will.

Thanks for suggesting Semblance Anvil. I have honestly never heard of this card until now. It's going to live rent free in my brain until I can think of a good deck to house it in. Thanks again for commenting and i'll definitely be checking out your Atraxa build as well.

Hey! This deck is really cool! It's nice to see an Atraxa deck go more towards counters than walkers (Speaking as a Superfriends player lol) I was wondering what you have Urza's Incubator in there for? You have the option to pick Horror and it helps your commander as well as some of your creatures but overall, the creature types seem a little more split than you'd need for Incubator. Have you looked at Semblance Anvil at all? You still get that discount but with the added benefit of getting the option to reduce more than just your creatures. Considering the balance to the deck, cards like Plague Myr would net you 2 less on Creatures and Artifacts at the same time and carry you a lot further in a turn or two
