Digimon COTD: Incubator

Incubator—An Evolution from the up coming Data Beakers set. Attach a card from your deck while evolving.

What’s good about it: Incubator lets you set up your newly-evolved Digimon for a much more fruitful lifespan right out of the box. It replaces itself after you use it, with the handy draw 1. Since you’re evolving by DP to use the effect, it also stacks with the effect of “Super Tag”. This is easily one of the best toolbox cards in the game due to how hard it is to void evolutions.

What’s bad about it: This card is an Evolution that gives you no discounts or ways to speed up evolution; thus your plan needs to be sound from the beginning. Incubator doesn’t let you get “Sincerity Mask” or cards like it. You can’t use it on any Digimon that is not actually evolving right then, including abnormals.

Tips: Running several different attachments can really help Incubator shine—one of the Crests and “Stardom” are a good starting point. Running “Super Tag” with this lets you keep your DP with the attach. Remember, look for the words “Attach to…” for cards that are legal attachment targets. Not just anything can be attached, you know!
