casting cost, 2colorless 2 white, enchantment: Each creature loses
all abilities and is a 1/1 creature. This is the heart and soul of the deck
it will turn any creature no matter how badass it thinks it is into a 1/1.
Once it’s in play, good chance of that being on turn 2, the game will slow
down and be in your hands. Even if you do run in to some trouble by the time
an opponent has dealt with Humility

to
the Scepter to gain control of the game. Once it’s imprinted you have say
over whether or not your opponent gets to play anything or if they get to
attack. With s.t.p. you could imprint it on the scepter too but it’s really
for saving the day if humility for some reason can’t be cast or is
destroyed. Both instants can be played instead of imprinted but the goal is
to imprint at least one of them to help keep better control over the game.
