ajpinton, you are just not used to blue useing its control magics, think about it, we had a few blue conters in shards, but blue was all about artifacts at the time, lorwyn/shadowmoor, it was fairies with their counters, but that was fairies and not really BLUE itself, we are starting to get back to blue contol, something I am quite happy about

awesome card, traps meet their match, and removal and combat tricks are gonna be hitting speed bumps left and right now

Very good ... if someone tries to counter your counter. A little too situational for my liking, but I still want to see this reprinted in M12 once Zendikar rotates out.

Negate or a resolved Flashfreeze will trump this out most of the time.

Absolute BOMB in Limited, though. One mana counter to Burst Lightning or Hideous End? YES PLEASE.

This card should be a 5/5. Nothing less. What else do you want this to be able to do?...kill Banslayer Angel?...kill a PW?...make you instantly win the game?

counterspells are getting cheaper, isn't it?

I have a feeling there's going to be a lot of games where I'm staring at this in my hand the whole game.

I like this card especially because it isn't the tzpical "unless ... pays 2 more' or even more dumb like cancel.
This card is situational and that's the est part of it. Blue should be specialized to be cost efficiently and since blue has a lot of draw+discard effects, it should be an easy choice.

In addition, this is a counter, you can add to any deck that doesn't consists purely of counterspells (those decks don't need it, because they don't run targetable creatures).
