Currently this the most effective way to deal with Thragtusk and Restoration Angel.

Cavern of Souls.

Because Remove Soul looks and sounds way too black to be blue.

To be fair, this is a counter, not removal. The effects remain in their usual colors: discarding a planeswalker is black, countering a planeswalker is blue, destroying a planeswalker is black, etc.

Yeah, the meta right now is very, very creature heavy, so this isn't an altogether bad choice for a Mana Leak replacement. We also have Negate and Rewind, so I'm happy with my countering options. Also, Ravnica should produce some interesting countering ability.

I guess someone wanted to remove more than 4 souls.

Hmm I feel they should have gone the way they did with Despise on this one; that is I think they should have made a card that says "Counter target creature or planeswalker spell."
Although I'm not sure the Wizards know quite yet where planeswalker removal lies on the color pie...

Mana Leak left standard because they reprinted the "broken" free counterspell known as Rewind

Both of them together would have kept turns 2-5 on lockdown which is far too powerfull on it's own, so they gave blue Negate and Essence Scatter so that blue would have to metagame instead of just having the best possible counter for games 1 and 2

Honestly, it's like you people don't even realize the subtle balance act that comes with every new edition set.

Out of all the counter spells they had to choose to replace mana leak in standard, they chose THIS?...
Pretty good choice, all things considered

Flavor-wise, many of the creatures that we summon to do combat for us do not actually have souls. I mean, how exactly is Remove Soul gonna get rid of a Vampire?
