It's an enchantment deck centered around a Birthing Pod–like card in its namesake, Enigmatic Incarnation. Each end step it allows you to sacrifice an enchantment to search a creature that costs one mana more. This gives the deck flexibility in finding whatever threat or answer it needs at any particular moment. The range of tutor targets is huge, starting for example at Spirited Companion to draw a card, Eidolon of Rhetoric as a spellslinger hate card, or Renegade Rallier, which brings back the two-mana enchantment just sacrificed to the Incarnation.
It's a five-color deck that incorporates any and all cards suiting its plan. What enables its multicolored nature is threefold. First, there is Fires of Invention, which allows you to cast spells without paying their tough cost, and multispell them on top of that. It also uses a wide selection of shock lands and, more importantly, tricycles to fix its mana. Last but not least, there is spell-based fixing in Nylea's Presence, which replaces itself and gives a land every basic land type, and with that the ability to add mana of any color.
An excellent addition from Dominaria United fits the deck perfectly from a few angles—Leyline Binding. It's an instant-speed Oblivion Ring effect that in this deck can be played for quite cheap. Just a single tricycle reduces the price by three, at which point it's already playable. Other shock lands and tricycles further reduce the cost, potentially dropping it to a single white mana. Nylea's Presence's rules text specifically saying that a land is of every type rather than "produces mana of any color" is key as a land enchanted with it makes Binding cost one right away. As cherry on top, you can sacrifice the Binding to Incarnation to find Agent of Treachery—very nicely fitting that curve.
