It's almost sad how much little play this sees compared to its parents, Absorb and Undermine

Can't blame them, though, we've been spoiled by much more absurd 4 CMC counterspells.

This card is good but mostly its just FUN to play! What a diss, to counter some ones spell, bolt them and gain life, I get a huge grin thinking about it. It deserves at least a 3. I loved Absorb and undermine and this is both!

Well, it is a 6 point life swing and a 4 mana hard counter. It may not be all that great, but there are certainly worse 4 mana hard counters out there. Take Last Word for one.

I'd love to be able to PUNISH IGNORANCE!

Printing this in the block after Cryptic Command is almost unfair. Not only is it laughably worse, it's harder to cast. Love the art, love the flavor text, love the callback to Invasion, but it never had a chance to shine with these numbers in that environment.

Nice card but they should have made it 1WUB or 2U+hybrid W\B

Play this card face down on the table, Revealing only to your opponent that you are playing "Punish Ignorance." Your opponent must then tell Punish Ignorance's printed flavor text, if he cannot exile target spell, followed by Punish Ignorance's casting cost, if he cannot target player loses 4 life, followed by Punish Ignorances epansion and rarity, if he cannot gain 6 life. Haha, a mini-game of ignorance punishing!

This card is a nightmare of uselessness for it's cost compared to it's abilities. If it could do damage to perhaps a creature on the field in addition it might be worth somewhere near it's mana cost.
