Containment Priest

Creature — Human Cleric


If a nontoken creature would enter the battlefield and it wasn't cast, exile it instead.

A few notes

Mono white lifegain payoffs are limitedly effective unless you go with Aetherflux Reservoir they require combat.

Cards to look at. I didn't look into budget tbh. But a few could maybe fit.

Martyr of Sands tons of life t1/2

On Thin Ice if you go to snow lands and play this.

Serra Ascendant 1 mana 66

Mikaeus, the Lunarch xx creature also buffs the team.

Containment Priest spicy sideboard card

Righteous Valkyrie lifegain payoff

Voice of the Blessed lifegain payoff

If you're looking for help making cuts, the first step I would take is to look at your symmetrical stax pieces and see which ones hurt you the most:

Deafening Silence, Grafdigger's Cage, Containment Priest, Ethersworn Canonist, Hushbringer, Kataki, War's Wage, Leonin Arbiter, Rest in Peace, Sphere of Resistance, Spirit of the Labyrinth, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Trinisphere, Sanctum Prelate, Rule of Law, Thorn of Amethyst, whew I think that's all.

Of these, you want to look at the ones which most hamper what you want to do, or have negative synergies with other cards you run. You have a few cards that say "draw", so Spirit of the Labyrinth is IMO the very first cut you should make.

Another negative synergy I saw is Hushbringer and Authority of the Consuls. I like Authority a lot better since it synergizes with Heliod.

The next ones I'd cut could take one of two routes: so, I'm thinking of cards like Ethersworn Canonist and Sphere of Resistance. These kind of innately have negative synergy - if people are paying more for spells, they're less likely to be able to cast multiple spells in the first place, meaning the Canonist's ability is wasted. You should consider going for one type of effect or the other, not both. (I wouldn't run either symmetrically in mono-white, personally).

Council's Judgment can probably be cut - you have great enough removal without running it.

kataki definitely needs to go with how many artifacts you're running.

Containment Priest exiles every creature you're bouncing, not an ideal interaction.

So, if someone where to flash in a Containment Priest in response to the triggered ability of Brago, King Eternal could I select no target's for Brago's ability to avoid exiling my own creatures?

Do keep in mind that at least Containment Priest does specify nontoken creatures, and will not interact with your Field of Souls at all. Hallowed Moonlight is the one you need to time right.

I didn't look too closely at the deck past seeing that it was mono-white since I don't really have the time to do a deep dive on it at this moment, so some of my suggestions may already be in there or may not be what you are wanting to do.

To help with the nonbos there are cards like Flickerform or Flickerwisp that could help with Containment Priest. Flickerform may be especially fun since you run Fiend Hunter effects. You can put it on one of the Fiend Hunters and then respond to the ETB with a Flickerform activation putting the linked LTB on top of the ETB returning nothing and then exiling a creature forever. You could also exile the Priest with one of your Fiend Hunter effects if you have a high enough density of them.

Eerie Interlude and Ghostway might also be fun includes. Not only can they remove a Containment Priest until end step so that you can make tokens. They can also let you completely dodge your own Wraths.

One last note. In both my previous response and this one "Fiend Hunter effects" refers strictly to things that are two abilities. An ETB and then a line break and a LTB. Banisher Priest effects that are a single ETB that says "When...enters the battlefield exile...until" act differently and will not produce the same results.

When multiple triggers happen at the same time, they go on the stack in APNAP order and a player who controls multiple triggers gets to put them on the stack in the order of their choosing.

Objects on the stack resolve one at a time, with a round of priority in between each thing resolving.

To accomplish what you are wanting to do, you will put all of the Fiend Hunter effect LTB triggers on the stack first and then the Field of Souls triggers. You allow all of the Field of Souls triggers to resolve. Then you cast your Containment Priest or Hallowed Moonlight. Your Containment Priest or Hallowed Moonlight will resolve before the Fiend Hunter effect LTBs and the creatures will be exiled instead of entering the battlefield.

Nah, the point of Containment Priest is to flash it in when the death triggers happen. Same with Hallowed Moonlight.

I think you are missing that point with what I am trying to do. I know there is a way to manipulate triggers on the stack, I just can't remember how to do it.
