Strictly worse than Negate.

But the way Portal worked, at least the way the previous printings worked, this card WAS Negate. There weren't any instants, just creatures and sorceries.

Negate can't counter Creature Sorceries. No, those don't exist yet.

Outside of a highly predictable and repetitive metagame, this is too situational to be worth a deck slot.

Not only is this strictly worse then Negate, but also Envelop. Just don't play this card.

So they should have made it to counter instants also.

A poor card, but it's not COMPLETELY useless. Just more often than not.

It's a shame such a potentially flavourful and awesome name was wasted so long ago on a lame counterspell.
