I want to counter something with this when I have Hive Mind and Eye of the Storm in play.

The trick is to use this with Boseiju, to make the first spell uncounterable.

In case you haven't noticed, like almost all cards in this awesome set, it represents something

Instant/Sorcery version of Polymorph, the strategies used, while slightly different, are fundamentally the same

.... so the trick is to counter your own spell? Seems like a hardcore Jonny card.

Use to counter one copy of a storm spell, hoping to get another storm spell into play?
Should work somewhat well with some things that creates copies, like cloven casting or storm spells, as previously mentioned
However, it costs way too much to be really useful

@XDaragoX: The deck that this was begging for is one that I played in standard back in RAV/TSP. Basically, you get Eye of the Storm in play, then put a spell on it, say Sleight of Hand. Then when you get the copy, you counter it with Spellshift. Eye will exile your Spellshift, you can stack the Sleight and counter it with the copy of Spellshift. This will let you reveal cards from your library and cast the next instant or sorcery. When you cast it, Eye will exile it and you'll get to stack all three spells. Just stack Sleight and Spellshift again, and you'll end up putting every instant and sorcery in your library on Eye, and a crazy number of copies of each of the early spells.

As long as you have something like Careful Consideration on there, you can deck your opponent easily. You can also stack a bunch of copies of Walk the Aeons to take as many turns as you wanted. You could make the deck a locko... (see all)

This card seems as though it's begging for a combo deck.

I would have loved this (flavorwise and mechanics-wise) if it had Split Second, sort of like a Morph for spells.

...Morph for spells. "You may put this spell on the stack face down for {1}. Turn it face up at any time for its Morph cost." You can do so in response to everyone passing priority and since Morph is a special action it doesn't give people another chance to respond before it resolves. That sounds kinda funny.

only really combo would be a "big spell" eye of storm deck... but cascade kinda fills that nouch better now...
