This sounds like a fun card. Even if your opponent isn't using storm, I'm amused by the idea of throwing a dozen counterspells in front of a single spell in the hopes that one will stick.

And versus Storm, I'd love to see this go off with a Lullmage Mentor out.

Playable in any format where it's legal. Maybe not the card you'd want in your opening hand vs a Mishra's Workshop deck, this is at the very least, a great sideboard card.

The difference between this and MBT is that this won't be a dead maindeck card. It's usually about as strong as Spell Pierce anyway.

Some of you people don't seem to understand. Notice the SECOND ability on here? Yeah. Let those gears grind for juuuuuust a second.

There are a million better counterspells in Magic. No doubt. However, this one absolutely HOSES Storm decks. Blue and they pretty much scoop. One blue is so much easier to keep open than BlueBlue for a regular CS, or any of the other costs for counters. Most of the storm decks I've seen completely tap out, save for up to 3 (to counter things like Mana Leak) when they get ready to storm. You drop this, and their buildup completely fizzles out.

What's even better is that it's isochron'able. Sure, not that important in regular games, but in EDH you can stop just about every storm that ever tries to go off. I'm always on the lookout for good spells to toss on the ol' scepter.

Mode, I don;t mean to be a hater, and I like ponies, but it gets old. Please go to the pony forums.
This is a MTG website. I go here for mtg.
I go to other sites to talk about ponies.
If they intermingle the universe might implode.
Thank you.

Why did they feel the need to put a legacy hoser in the Commander precons?

is 1 drop-rare? is Blue? is Instant? is broken >.<

This makes the cost at least 2 mana, because it counts the spell that Flusterstorm counters. Not as diverse as the very good Spell Pierce, but far better at stopping instant and sorcery spells.
