I'm eagerly awaiting the follow-ups to this: Razzle-Dazzle and Fribble-Frabble.

This is a fun idea.

Too bad it sucks. It would have been playable at 2U and competitive at UU. As is, it's pretty horrible.

An extremely effective card in an alternate universe where Wood Elementals are the dominant creature and Laces are power cards.

Should have cost 2U - a bit cheaper than Cancel (the new standard for counterspells), but with a restriction. Now, it is a case of pay more, get less.

This card makes Cancel look like Mana Drain.

Well, now Erase (Not the Urza's Legacy One) is wrong.

Wow, it's not even Cancel. I wouldn't be happy to open this in a booster, unless the rare was Cap'n Tickles.

You guys just don't understand. Frazzle can't be Reverberated back onto itself! 5/5 (no not really)

I think the point of this was splashibility. Mulitcolor decks were a very big theme of the block. So the BlueBlue+ cost that counterspells famously carry was harder to come by. With only two islands on the field, you were locked out of half of your deck (if dual-colored) should you want to keep counter mana up. So I can see where R&D was coming from by adding one more colorless mana to drop one mana symbol.

The "non-blue" downside seems a bit extreme to me in addition to the increased cost, though. As I already said, the block was heavy in multicolored. So that "non-blue" means four of the ten guilds of Ravanica have spells immune to this, not to mention the non-blue guilds with blue hate (Looking at you, Gruul).

So yeah, they got over protective on this one. What would have been nice was one of the "if you paid -color-" triggers instead of the target limitation. Maybe have this backlash some damage to you unless a Red was paid, or discard unles... (see all)

costs 1 colorless mana too much. maybe they didn't want to break it in the common slot?

Built as a splashable hard counter for drafts.
Which it does well.
