Quote from DesuBunny »How do we feel about Wilderness Reclamation it could be more of potential replacement for Vial or just an include especially in the builds that ramp instead of vial.
Quote from rayo »I don't think Growth Spiral is what our deck is looking for. Yes being able to turn 3 Cryptic is nice, but the card doesn't interact with our opponent nor does it apply pressure or creates CA. We already run Vials for a tempo boost.
Incubation//Incongruity looked way more promising at first sight but then I ran the numbers through a hypergeometric calculator and to consistently hit with Incubation we would need to up our creature count quite a bit. Here's the numbers calculated for at least one creature in the top 4 cards of a 60 card deck (which is not a 100% realistic, but a solid approximation):
15 creatures: 77.6%
16 creatures: 80.1%
17 creatures: 82.4%
18 creatures: 84.4%
19 creatures: 86.3%
20 creatures: 88.0%
21 creatures: 89.5%
22 creatures: 90.8%
23 creatures: 92.0%
24 creatures: 93.1%
25 creatures: 94.1%
Not being able to hit lands really hurts this one because not hitting a creature is just aweful here.
I do think there is some room to brew with this and come up with a more creature heavy version of Eternal Command that uses I//I while also making a better use of Vial, I just haven't found the right creatures to go with yet. Maybe a 1x Kiki+ 4x Bounding Krasis + 2x Architects of Will + 2-3x Traverse the Ulvenwald. Seems pretty janky and the mana is aweful but Krasis into Cryptic into Kiki could be just enough to hold off some of these uninteractive aggressive decks like Dredge or Hollow One. I don't know.
