10/4/2004 The card does not go to the graveyard before being put on the library.
10/4/2004 This card has a self replacement. This means that it replaces going to the graveyard before any other effect can replace that event. If Flashback is applied, however, Flashback will change the destination.
10/4/2004 If the spell is not countered (because the spell it targets can't be countered), then it does not go to its owner's library.
