The classic creature counter. With timing, this can easily stop your opponent's trump card. Worth using in almost any blue deck.
btw, Hey Master Of Etherium, How Is It Going? Are Your Comments Supposed To Be Acronyms Or Something?

You're right about it not coming into play, but it the countered card doesn't go from their hand to the graveyard, it goes from the stack to the graveyard.

Remember kids, you can remove the soul of a Soulless One.

With I had another Essence Scatter so I could run a full eight In my W/U deck. As it is I live with seven and my Benalish Knight kills anything I actually allow.

Blue will run these until the end of time.

I guess you can safely maindeck 4 o' these right now. It's a decent counter. 3,5/5.

A handy anti-creature card, which has gained a sibling in Negate, which counters everything else for equal cost.

Not really a big fan of this, since I'd rather just run plain old creature removal.

Unless I was running mono blue, or U/G (neither color has direct removal).

It is countered, which means it goes straight from the hand to the graveyard without ever coming into play.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
