I don't have a good reason why I just know I like this card. It's odd to see a hard counter without restriction that doesn't have UU in the mana cost.

According to Wizards, hard counters like this would always have two blue mana in its cost, yet Psychic Strike only needs 1 blue, makes me wonder if Wiz is beginning to change that policy.

One of this cards greatest strengths is the color weight. Hitting {U}{B} can me much easier than {U}{U} in a multi color deck.

Hard counter without BlueBlue in the cost, without a horrible CMC (Fall of the Gavel).
According to Maro, hard counters now only need two colored mana, one of which is blue, not necessarily both. This is strong, the counterspell is useful for Dimir and the milling is a bonus.

At the same CMC as the standard of counterspells (cancel) and gives a minor mill boost that can be extremely relevant.

I still like dissipate better, but I can't complain about a hard-counter for limited that is 3 cmc, with a tiny mill bonus

It requires you to play two colors... but its effect is better than a monocolored card of the same CMC... but its extra benefit is small and only makes a difference in certain decks/situations.

This is a great example of a fair multicolor design.

Very good cancel card. That's a step up from Psychic Drain in the original Ravnica.
