Mana Leak variant number... seventeen? I've honestly lost track.

Oh right, the card's actual merits. Cool stuff, though if you're devoted enough to blue you would have no problem paying for a hard counter. Still, 4/5

Just like Aspect of Hydra is a devotion version of Giant Growth, this is a devotion Mana Leak. I wonder if Acolyte's Reward gave counters at one point like Test of Faith. And Thunderous Might is a devotion version of Song of Blood, and Marshmist Titan with devotion = 3 is a Razorjaw Oni... almost. : )

Works well with Fish deck variants, stable # of blue permanents and in need of counters.

This is going to see constructed. Mono blue is pretty strong at the moment, so I nice counter spell like this is quite nice.

Ah yes, because mono-blue needed yet ANOTHER card to make it even MORE viable and therefore be even MORE overused.

It's funny, the only cards I can easily see fit into a competitive standard deck is a lowly uncommon. In a good enough blue devotion this is cancel for two.

Solid card, if conditional.

Eh, a counterspell that does absolutely nothing in the early game...

If you have no U devotion on your side of the field and your opponent taps out completely for a spell, will the spell then be countered?

Where do I begin with a card like this? According to the forums, this was heralded as pretty much the second coming of Mana Leak. Hopefully, people will realize how silly that was when they actually play it though. The problem with this counterspell is that generally blue decks don't have permanents on the board, and if they do, it's not enough to make for a very powerful X-counterspell. This spell can't be cast sooner than turn 3 and is very easy to play around if your opponent knows it's coming, since they can just count your devotion. Which isn't to say that I think blue needs more powerful counterspells--just that this isn't one of them.
