Damn good art.

Why is this rated so low compared to the orginal?

Also, great art. Counterspells are hard to depict, apparently, and this one does a good job.
(Really, go look at the art of counterspells. Many of them don't really look like something is being counteracted.)

It's not that bad... It should be good for countering counters, or just keeping it around in case your Rewind gets countered.

That's the Simic symbol being formed by the countered spell.

I'm pretty new to this whole world so bear with me if this seems a dumb question. This card states "counter target instant spell" I read this to mean that it only counters instants? Is that a correct assumption?

My favourite counterspell. I'm not much of a control player (at least a blue control player - I don't mind black control etc.), but I also hate having my stuff countered. This card to me says 'counter target counterspell'.

The day I used it to counter a force of will was glorious. I put this in my mimeoplasm EDH deck thinking 'why not?' and then that happened. I was so happy I bought a foil one for the deck. It's countered probably about 20 counterspells by now. What a bauss.

Also, that look on the damn blue mage's face :P
They're all smug and comfy because 'nothing can get through if I have force of will in hand'. And then they try to counter my game-winning spell, and they're like 'NOPE' and then I'm like 'biiiitch'.

@ jackieXplosion
yes this counters only instants

This is better than it looks. There's a lot of dangerous instants in many formats, and it's cheaper than Negate.

Great art great flavor. I hope this is how simic is gonna be like in gatecrash. Man I'm nearly squealing like a little girl for when simic's mechanic gets spoiled!

Chase Stone a new artist for Magic and I think he's great.
