Useful, but I prefer Cryptic Command, Punish Ignorance, and a slough of other 4 mana counters.

3/5 Above Average card. Counter and top manipulation in one card is what Blue magic means. Slightly worse than Dismiss.

One of my favorite counters, TBH. I always felt that 4 was a good and fair cost for counters with an effect, and this never fails to please.

Not exactly Ponder. It's Sage of Epityr's effect + Counterspell. For 1 more than a normal Cancel, it's pretty good.

Two mana for a Counterspell and two mana for a Sage Owl without the body, in one card. Not bad, actually.

Ponder + Counterspell = FTW

Mana cost isn't bad all things considered.

Flavor is what makes this card.

Chances are you have better ways to both scry and to counter spells, but it's a nice multitasker.

since blue is being nerffed, this looks a whole lot better, but since extended was halved, you can use it in legacy or vintage, where there are better counterspell's.
