I wonder if Wizards knows how hard this card is to look up on ebay.

it's good with Obsessive Search, one mana counter with draw effect, though you'll lose your island..

it might be work with some madness card with 0 madness cost, like call to the netherworld.

The castle behind these two women is a real Teutonic Order fortress that's in Malbork, Poland. Plagiarism!;)

Playing surprise counerspells while tapped out is very good.

Opponent: Gemstone Cavern, Flash, Protean Hulk, gg?

You: Foil. Look! We both start with a hand of 4, neat!

While both Foil and FoW can both be free counters, Foil costs only 2UU, makes it easier to use should you have the spare mana to cast it outright. Couple with other cards such as Daze and Obsessive Research or threshold mechanic, the drawback could be lessened or even utilized compare to FoW.

FoW is no doubt still more powerful.

@Channelblaze: I wonder if your idea of pitching Circular Logic could be used on cards with Cascade?

Foil, pitching circulur logic would be pretty cool. Generally redundant, but still, i think it would be pretty cool. I think this is good, but it's not force of will good. Probably not daze good either. Or pact of negation good. So it's once of the not-so-great free counterspells, but it's a free counterspell, so it's still good. 3-1ing yourself hurts, tho.

@Cyberium: Yeah, never thought of that! I like it =P

FoW is more powerfull, but exiles cards. here you discard that may have some uses like Flash of Insight
