Each Time Spiral card was an homage to at least one previously printed card.

This card references Shock, suddenly!

@jsttu: Split Second won't stop a creature from being regen'd if the shield has already been put up. If you try to activate a regen ability in response to Sudden Shock, however, or if they put it on the stack in response to you activating the regen ability, then the Shock will resolve before the ability activates the regen, and the creature will die without a chance to save it.

@Enchantment_Removal Split second doesn't allow playing spells OR activated abilities that aren't mana abilities. So none of your solutions would work.

@klauth: Morph is a special action that doesn't use the stack, because it's ending the face-down effect. Similarly, if you had a Grizzly Bears with Nurturing Licid on it, you couldn't pay Green to regenerate the bear, but you could pay Green to have the licid become a creature again and thus not die with the bear.

@Joshmagic No, they would just let your split second card resolve then counter the stasis as it tries to resolve. You could sudden shock something that is trying to counter your stasis before it gets the chance to though. See all those tap:counter wizards.

You guy realize that on this same very website there are rulings for cards. Namely this one, in which it states that morphed creatures CAN flip up... Seriously, take 2 seconds to read the rules before arguing back and forth about this.

So, yes, Willnbender can redirect this, and Voidmage would counter this.

i really liked split second, and hope to see it come back at some time in the future. This is a perfect example of a block 'french vanilla' ability spell, except that split second is awesome. definitly worth the ectra colorless mana, if it fits your curve well.

These type of cards shouldn't be in your curve...
