Assimilate Essence{1}{U}
Counter target creature or battle spell unless its controller pays {4}. If they do, you incubate 2. (Create an Incubator token with two +1/+1 counters on it and "{2}: Transform this artifact." It transforms into a 0/0 Phyrexian artifact creature.)
"You have no viable escape vector. Cease your resistance and accept perfection."
