i like the artwork. Stronghold Biologist sits on the right side of the table. :D
and of course, both cards complement each other.
the activation cost could be {U} cheaper, though...

Yeah the ability costs a bit but at least it's continuous countering if you got some cards and mana.

@Mode: Agreed.

Recurring counterspells never make for a fun gaming environment, just ask Ertai, Wizard Adept.
@Toes of Krosa: Because he's a dirty double-poster, that's why.

Get both of these out and you are laughing.

Used to have a really annoying deck with this, biologist, lots of ways to defend them, lots of creature control, and worship. This has won me many, many games in the past, but it's a little too slow for magic's current speed and power in most formats. Still a great card though. 4/5

A nice spellshaper for sure. The element of surprise is missing sadly, but sometimes the threat of a counter spell is enough in itself.

Why does Mode's comment have 5 stars on this and 3.5 on Biologist?

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
