I mana tithed a Cryptic command in a big tournament once, then swung for the the win. Man was that guy livid. >:D

It's a decent WHITE counter! Why isn't this at least 4/5!?

I did the same thing! Some guy tried to counter my Akroma with a Cryptic, and got owned by my Mana Tithe. Akroma killed him after she got to resolve. I don't like blue, normally preferring to play cards on my turn, but it's funny to use a white counterspell against a blue deck.

In modern, this is one of the most effecient counters. I have to splash white for this thing, else run a sub optimal deck. I hope they reprint force spike soon.

White Force Spike?

Although i love playing white and cant understand all the stupid hate against the color, i truly dont get the flavor of this card.

I know its planar chaos and its justified mechanic-wise by whites balancing and taxing site (see art and flavor text) but i still dont understand what this card is doing in a battle setting. Is it like "hey you necromancer, you dont want to summon a demon do you? the tax on demon summoning is 250 dollar - *hands over ticket*"

Okay, this is just insulting. I know it's colorshifted and I don't care, this card still ***es me off.

I love this card. Planar Chaos and Future Sight are two of my favorite sets, ever, just because they *** people off and drop jaws with cards like this.

Kaalia has a counter?...KAALIA HAS A COUNTER?!
Kaalia...has a counter....:D

'Rhystic' counters may not be so good in Commander, but in a fast beatdown deck, hey it could work?

Why the hell white has better counterspell than Blue ?!

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
