I'm surprised we didn't get this spell earlier.
It might be situational, but a one-drop hardcounter is nothing to scoff at.

On top of this there are a lot of famous instants you will encounter in Standard right now:
It can target any other counterspell, any trap, Lightning Bolt, Path to Exile, Doom Blade, Naturalize, Terminate (you see we're going to target a lot of removal spells with that one), and finally Harrow, which is likely the most fun to target.

Cheap, useful, simple and effective flavor.

Gets rid of almost all spot removal and counterspells, which can be really helpful in combo decks. I don't think there's any other counterspell I'd rather have in a Splinter Twin deck.

Excellent card.

I like this spell, it's almost like it's the answer to Gutteral Response, with more versatility. This is probably what blue control has been needing, though, in answer to all the nasty instant spells in White, Black, and Red, though I'd say it's more effective late game, as early game you would probably want to be casting Spell Pierce instead of this.

A cheap way to counter counter spells...like Counterspell.

I used this when it was called Flash Counter and cost twice as much;
I wouldn't *hesitate* to use this.

1cc hard counter for disenchant, doom blade, and other counterspells?
Sign me up for four!

Not a glorious anthem heralding the return of outstanding counterspells, but definitely a start.

Also, how amazing is it that it took them this long to make a spell with the name "Dispel"?
