What's interesting is that since they changed it to an Instant, counter-wars are impossible if playing Portal Block since there's no card available to counter Mystic Denial.

For when you gotta have 4 more cancels (almost).

I really wish Wizards hadn't changed the text of the card to "COUNTER target...". This spell would've at least had it uses if it were able to toss "uncounterable" creatures and sorceries into the graveyard. Unfortunately it's now just a horrible "Counterspell" and (as everyone else has been mentioning) a bad "Cancel". :(

wow, an inferior version of Cancel from portal.
sorcery portal cards are strange anyways since they replace all instants with an accordant further de***ion, and "countering spells" was also paraphrased quite explicatory.

Bwa ha ha ha. It's a good thing they errated the card. Playing a sorcery in response to anything is impossible. And silly.

IMHO it is an error in the Oracle wording that this cannot counter other Mystic Denials, because that is strict diminishing of the original functionality.

The big bold letters is like the card is saying "U R DUMB SO READ THIS DUMB-DUMB"

Counters that are sorceries are useless.

Strictly worse than Cancel is a bad place to be.
