This is such an elegant card. I remember when Mr. Flores previewed this way back when.

A legacy staple. Counters Stoneforge Mystic, Dark Confidant, Hymn to Tourach and Tarmogoyf. If it wasn't for Mental Misstep...

It counters Tarmogoyf, Stoneforge Mystic, Dark Confidant, Hymn to Tourach, and Snapcaster Mage. For one mana.

Yeah. It's that good. Now if only Abrupt Decay were counterable. This card would be that much better.

When will this be reprinted?lol

Nix, Mental Misstep, Spell Snare. I see a trend...

That said, great card. Pure tempo advantage. And what kind of deck doesn't run a two (except Cascade-into-Hypergenesis)?

I don't even lose my time saying how many card this spell can counter, but in its block there are about 126. There are every guildmage, every Signet, Telling Time, Castigate, Dark Confidant, Glimpse the Unthinkable, Last Gasp and Lightning Helix among many others...
