Nearly every card in Time Spiral was a throwback to at least one previously printed card.

This card references Spell Blast, including the flavor text!

I would run these in an infinite mana deck and deck them. Using nothing but this card.

This card was disgusting with UrzaTron.

This card feels like it was made to counter the famous 0-cmc suspend cards from Time Spiral set, however it also deals quite nicely with the Pact cycle from Future Sight.
Taking a broader view, this card also deals quite nicely with Lotus and the moxes.

Also works pretty well against 1-cmc spells, as countering a 1-cmc spell with this corresponds with having a Counterspell with a manacost of 1Blue. That being said, this card obviously weakens the higher cmc your opponents' spells have, however the buyback ability can still make is a real pain to deal with later in the game (i.e. you're at 8 lands and your opponent topdecks a 4-cmc spell).


Oh yeah, could this be used to repeatedly counter an opponent's commander in EDH? :)

This flavor text is referencing the flavor text of the tempest version of spell blast

Clever flavor text. Buyback is always fun. Get your memory crystals out.

How can it be worse than Spell Blast? They are the same card, but this has Buyback...

Nice card, however... Not game breaking, unless you have a HUGE amount of mana, but nice... Worked very well with the Urza-tron!

I like how the flavour text reflects how people who play this are regarded.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
