Said it before, and I'll say it again. Jaya Ballard has the best flavor text.

Jaya Ballard was playing with Unhinged cards.

Nice that you can still get a card for 1R if your opponent is not playing blue as long as they use instants.

Guttural Response with a cantrip

but shouldn't it now simply read "Counter target blue instant spell"

the art is a bit misleading on what the card actually does

You can even use it on your own instant just to draw a card. Not effective, but countering AND drawing is, so it may be worth it.

I like it for EDH when you're almost sure to be expecting at least one player at the table to be playing blue. Cheap counter AND card draw in the last color you would expect, always worthwhile.

Also, I will always love Jaya Ballard.

This card is now MUCH better than originally.

It used to target only interrupts, i.e., any counters of Sleights/Hacks.

Now it targets all blue instants!!

Just blue hate... maybe worth a side spot but not worth it in most games.

Fun sideboard in a mono red burn deck with blasts. drawing a card is always a bonus for burn.
