I love seeing universally useful cards (like Counterspell/Cancel) get another card stapled on that isn't QUITE good enough to earn a slot in most decks, but is still useful.

Voidslime here is an excellent example of this. It's hard to justify running Stifle (except maybe sideboarding) despite what it COULD do, cause there are just too many decks it does nothing against. This card though? For the price of a colorful cancel, you can still do all the counterspelling you love, but have an unexpected answer for all those little abilities your opponents forget can be countered.

That being said... Render Silent is still my favorite counterspell of all time.

Whatever it is, if it uses the stack, too bad.

I like that the mana cost is GUU or goo.

Haha, I love thinking of this card as like, a pile of slime that suddenly springs to life and engulfs a creature like "mmm magic WHAARGARBL" and your opponents dude is screaming and shrieking for someone to get it off him

On another note, I'm almost disappointed every time I look at the card because I just wish they had made it a 0/0 creature with flash, that had the countering as an ETB trigger. It would fit the flavor text perfectly.

Puts an end to all that "doing things" nonsense your opponents were thinking about.

It's a Stifle stapled to a Counterspell. In green. What's not to love?

One of the best counterspells in the game. Like jhjohns said, you could replace the rules text with "nope."

I think that what Champion_Kitsune meant is that the added green mana cost makes it more restrictive in terms of which decks can use it.
