@horologium0 Oh snap - CP doesn't stop it. I was thinking it stopped everything not cast from hand. But anything cast from anywhere still works.
Per the card's rulings:
- Containment Priest’s last ability won’t affect any creatures that were cast, including ones cast from unusual zones such as your graveyard.
That does it. Vintage is broken. Every deck will be Standstill (to just 12x counter Zirda), THIS MONSTROSITY, or 4x stony/4x Ouphe/4x Null rod.dec
Yeah, that's hyperbole...or is it?
@Horologium0 I Am still running 1 Urza in case of 1) if ceremonious rejection becomes a popular answer, 2) If we DO get flooded with null rod effects by the opponent. Then at least outside of teferi being unable to remove all the rod effects, you can at least get a 1/4 for just 4 mana that makes a giant construct out of all your dead artifact rocks and has an ability that costs only 3 to use (if you have Zirda in play). I think if we have infinite mana, we win more times than not with either Urza or Spawnsire in hand, but on the chance null rod hits and we can't remove it, it is at least a viable plan B.
Are there any good ways outside of Teferi to get rid of problematic null rods? I was running repeals in draft 1.0, but realized Teferi just offered so much more upside with the same effect for the same 3cmc that I went to 4 teferi and never looked back. Maybe there's another permanent with an ability that handles ouphe, stony, and null rod in one card? Something fetchable with Karn perhaps, but Spine of Ish Sah seems really expensive if we have our mana rocks shut off. Thoughts?
