my favorite counterspell flavor text, but not my favorite artwork.

I think this is my favorite Counterspell version. I would say the Tempest version, but you can't get a shiny one. The art on the JvC version is spectacular, but too specific; I'm not Jace.

Actually, check that; Dom!'s art on the DCI Judge Gift Card makes that one my favorite version. Can't link to that...wish they'd put the promos up on Gatherer.

Personally, I like the Ice Age version the best, but that might be because that's the one I remember seeing most when I started.

Masques Counterspell ftw.

Blue's Dark Ritual (in spirit, not in effect), any blue deck that doesn't have four of these in it is not complete.

Also, this is the best flavour text for this card ever.

Counterspell is pretty much the best counter ever.

And yeah, the flavor text is awesome.
