I used it to counter a Baneslayer angel, the guy got mad and told me to get some money and make a real deck. I killed him with tokens made by Lullmage Mentor by using lapse of certainty. Sometimes its just fun playing with sub-optimal cards.

Oh god the owls! The HORROR!!!

As mentioned this is actually a very strong card. Basic landcycling in blue turns this into something to do in your blue deck when they try to play around your two blue mana on turn two. And in the lategame this might as well read counterspell since mana isn't an issue at that point usually.

So yes, two weak sides...but the utility makes it awesome. Also, you should play it for the great artwork.

As a counterspell, pitiful.
As a Domain enabler, handy. Blue doesn't normally have access to this kinda thing outside of artifacts, and if you topdeck it late game, a spell's still a spell.
But yeah, this whole cycle is overcosted as hell. Damn shame too, if they all cost 1 less they'd be at least decent.

I can dig it in EDH. especially non-green based ones. sure you can get relatively easy mana from artifacts but this gives u a land early (and a counterspell later...which can be handy. Much happier to see this lategame than just a cultivate-esque ability. 3/5 from me

I love this card. The design is great allowing much versatility in play. While I do think a 4 casting cost would have been a bit preferable, that would perhaps be asking for a bit much and I think the card stands well where it does. I like the art, it doesn't stand out to me the way some of the other card arts have in the Conflux set, but it's nice.

This card could be useful if your deck is rocking cascade because it sucks to cascade into counter magic.

I love this card, in 5cc you cycle early and counted late, it's a nice options card.

this card is severely underrated, do people not realize that this isn't a counterspell but rather one of the most useful blue fetch-lands, and in case you get it late-game and have no other counterspells you could always use it to counter like a progenitous or something.

This thing needs to cost four, but maybe i'll change my mind after i've played it a bit.
