Am I the only one who feels that the "came in to play this turn" clause was supposed to replace the "nonblack" clause - and then they just forgot?

I find it funny that people wouldn't compare it to Doom Blade so much if it said "Counter target nonblack creature spell." (It would be better but not by a lot.)

For those complaining very loudly about this being strictly worse than Doom Blade, I would like to point out that this was released long before Doom Blade. Granted, it's still a mediocre kill spell at best, but it wasn't strictly worse than any card when it came out. Usually a worse card? Undoubtedly. But until Doom Blade came out in M10, it wasn't STRICTLY worse than the standard kill.

Strictly worse than Terror or Doom Blade.

@Silver: Pffft, unless your playing casually all the time and all your friends use esper decks, I highly doubt you're hindered by Terror's artifact restriction more often than the came into play this turn restriction from this. It's like a crap version of a counterspell, because you have to keep your mana open if you want to destroy a creature an opponent plays, and then you have to worry about stuff like protection from black, indestructibility, shroud, etc. In conclusion the only way Terror is ever worse than this mockery of a card is when every single creature in your opponents deck is an artifact creature, and even then it's not much better.

Terror and Doom Blade are both powerful, cheap creature destruction spells, this on the other hand is a very restrictive, retarded version of a counterspell.
