Stop counters against your Miracles, or counter your opponent if they get greedy and play a cantrip into a Miracle on your turn.

This seems like a counterspell for people who don't like counterspells, which I think is good. Anyone splashing Blue can keep a few of these on hand to stop the Dissipates, and people who normally think control players are jerks can see things with a wider perspective.

Steev, the difference is in the subtlety. If it said "counter target spell IF it's the second spell cast this turn," it would go on the stack, then check on resolution whether or not it works. In its current wording, it cannot be cast unless it targets the second spell cast this turn, which can make it more difficult to get out of your hand if your opponent has something like Black Vise out. Not that I know anyone who runs that.

@0pp0 That doesn't work because you don't have priority then.

I think this should win some kind of award... Most awkward counterspell?
Even so, I really want to find a way to make this good...

I have concerns about the wording on this card, why not just say "if it was the second spell cast this turn"? It sounds like they second guessed the sentence:

"Counter target spell........ that's the second spell cast this turn!"

Better than thusfar rated. Shall be used.

After much deliberation, I think I finally figured out why this was printed: a hoser for Miracles. It won't always hit the Miracle, but it will hit the next spell they play that turn (and it's likely that they will play another, seeing how cheap Miracles are). Additionally, if they Think Twice into a Miracle on your turn, you have a cheap counterspell ready for when they pull Entreat the Angels or something ridiculous like that.

It still sucks

Works surprisingly well against blue I'd imagine. "I play this card that's gonna let me destroy you" "Yeah nice try. Dissipate." "HAHA no thank you."

It's not necessarily a great card, but it isn't that bad

*opponent moves to tap 6 mana for grave titan
*opponent hesitates... casts gravetitan anyways
"you shoulda thought twice, and not 'SECOND GUESSED'"
*"does that ... even make sense?"

Seems like a card that'll be clogging up hands far too often unless you draw it early. And I don't think it's worth putting enough copies in to ensure you DO draw it early. Should have been a common, I think.
