I remember when they released 8th edition and decided to print this card instead of counterspell. My friend was about to stop playing. Everyone hated this card. Now that we only have that ugly cancel, I really miss this card. It should be reprinted.

This is the only best counter spell next to "Counterspell".
Reprint this, c'mmon wizards!

Who needs Counterspell?

I don't understand Wizards' extreme reluctance to reprint this. I UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY'RE SAYING ABOUT COUNTERS NOT BEING FUN. But people have been complaining about this for years now. I simply can't believe that the disappointment felt by the casual players who hate this card (by the way: when was the last time you met a _casual_ player who actually cared about what was Standard legal?) would be enough to outweigh the great relief of countless Blue mages who miss their playable, unconditional counters (and this isn't even a 100% hard counter!), or, in my case, the players who don't play control, but sympathize with the fall of monoblue in today's Standard, and think that it could use this little kick.

Please reprint this, Wizards. Let the (Non-)Reign of Cancel end!

Yup, It's being reprinted- With snazzy new art to boot.

This needs to get a reprint.

If Counterspell isn't going to get reprinted, Mana Leak should. It's much better than Cancel.

Fun argument is pretty empty because there are a lot of playing style and effect that is not "funny" to opponent (discard,sacrifice,exile..)

So, fun or not, this is blue's way and power in that game... And Mmno-blue deserves to be played just like other mono decks.
