What is Containment Priest good against?
Moving on, let’s talk about Elves! Suffice to say that Containment Priest is a really strong hoser against this deck. Not only does it stop the little green men from tutoring their best creatures right out of their deck with Green Sun’s Zenith, but it can also hit their mana production as well.
