why is this rated so low? It's nice in artifact decks.

4 of in my Black Blue Affinity deck. Just amazing. "Stop trying to play with that toy of yours.... on second thought I'll just make sure you can't get it back."

@Duskdale_Wurm : And now that the censor's been corrected (at least for that specific word), you look even more foolish !

Mindbreak trap is so much better. But comparing an uncommon to a Mythic Rare is completely unfair.

@ NeoKoda:

Mindbreak Trap, like Flusterstorm, serves a different purpose. All the countermagic in Modern is taylor-made to a different situation. Trap is built for killing 1st or 2nd turn Storm decks in Legacy. Flusterstorm is similar while also being a better Force Spike.

Mana Leak is a solid control card for the first 6 turns of the game, but drawing more copies later is quite horrible unless your opponent is really trying to max out his or her mana curve. Rune Snag works exactly like Mana Leak, but in reverse; late drawn copies are quite good. Logic Knot is similar to both of these cards.

Remand is again, another solid control card that shuts down the opponent's tempo, and the fact that it cantrips means you can just keep the control pressure on.

Annul, Steel Sabotage, Mental Misstep, autocar... (see all)

Interesting in comparison to Stoic Rebuttal. Rebuttal can handle an aggro deck's turn three power play, but Assert Authority is great against graveyard recursion decks. Especially with flashback making a comeback in Innistrad. I run 4 Rebuttals in my artifact deck's mainboard and 3 of these in its sideboard -- they're both powerful cards.

screw affinity? with 5 artifacts on the field you can counter and remove their spell from the game for 2blue!

this is another invaluable card for an artifact deck, it's just a shame that people don't often see it

people don't get that this is a better version of counterspell in an artifact deck.
