Myr Incubator is an interesting card, obviously one that you would use to build a deck around. It's currently found a niche with the rest of its Mirrodin artifact buddies seeing play. It equals a heavy 1/1 all out slaughter if it goes off right. Actually, it's priced well at the moment considering it's potential.

In limited, you could include it if you had an amazing artifact laden deck in the first place. Otherwise, nah.

Constructed: 3.75
Limited: 2
Current Price:
$3

Pojo needs somehting like this to create reviewers who hand in reviews on time.

Reviewer Incubator 6

T, Sacrifice <Cardname>: Search email database for reviewer email addresses. You may send them emails telling them to hurry up. If you do, recieve all reviews on time.

Pretty good card if you ask me. Make Judge Bill happy, cause at least his cards would be recognised. *Pictures Judge Bill sitting at his computer with no-one replying to his cards of teh week. "No-one loves me :(". Hehe.

Anyway, on with the review. Myr Incubator is a good card. IN THEORY! IN THEORY...communism works. Removing cards from your library to make 1/1 creatures and swarming your opponent may of seemed liek a good idea, but that was before they starstomed, or infested, or cycled decree of pain, or Justice, or did any number of popular, often used spells that totally make this card a waste. This isnt one of those times where you can say "So and so is a good card" and then some smartass goes "2 words. Counter spell" and you cant decide wheter to tell him that it is one word, or that it isnt in the format anymore (thank god. Imagine counter on a Sceptre. *shudder*) or that counterspell isnt alwasy in hand when you need it. I hate those jerks!

Limited, I suppose if you had some artifacts in your deck to make it worthwhile. Still, you don't win limited gams with 1/1's. And if you do, you were probably already winning.

Of course, this could be used to thin your deck. Get rid of all the crap filler artifacts and improve your chances to draw good ones. *shrugs*

Constructed rating - 2ish (It could be good if you get it our fast enough and swarm. But there are just too many answers to this)
Limited rating - 3. (Lots of creatures create creature stall, which allows you time to get your bobm I spose)

Simpson Quote rating - WOOHOO! DOH! Eat my shorts. My cat's breath smells like cat food. Hello Mr. Thompson. *whispers* I think he's talking to you.

 Tuesday - Myr Incubator

One of the ways the Tinker decks won in New Orleans. You can remove artifacts in your library from the game in exchange for an equal number of 1/1s. This only makes this good in a heavy artifact deck, which is the primary deck in extended right now.

In limited, you would have to want to get rid of artifacts in your library to play this card. And since that would mean they were semi useless in the first place, that means you would be in trouble if you drew them. So just stay away from this.

Constructed: 3
Limited: 1.25
