I typed fail into gatherer to see if anything would come up I wasn't expecting to find such a rude card 5/5.

As a blue player, I instantly fell in love. This is definitely worth the two extra mana over counterspell. Discard in blue is rare, add on a counterspell and you've got a card.

It's worth noting: Countering a spell is now 1UU. The discard really only costs 1 colorless, which is pretty nice considering it's both useful and off-color.

Late in the game, this isn't guaranteed to 2-for-1, but that's where blue's bounce comes in.

I love the flavor of this card: It makes me think of vintage/legacy tournament play with counterspells. Confidence in your own abilities goes a long way!

Everyone is forgetting same thing, this is two for one, you are countering a card AND forcing opponent to discard a card that will be countered on next turns.If opponent discard a land, still i will have faster tempo than him/her

@Zylo: I'm sorry, tell me how Cryptic Command makes an opponent discard a card and costs 2BlueBlue rather than 1BlueBlueBlue. Tell me exactly how it's strictly better.
