CMC 4 on this card would have made it into a nice tool for Blue T2 Decks. Too bad most cards are either limited fodder or rares n mythic these days.

At least it's not strictly strictly worse than cryptic command :D
(3 blue mana is sometimes harder to pay than 1 genric mana more)

This is not so bad as it seems. No, it's not cryptic command, but cryptic command is way above the power curve anyway. I would happily play this in T2 or in casual. Counterspells rarely give you anything extra, and if this cost even one less it would be far more than it should be. If you are playing a deck that usually works on the opponent's turn anyway, this will rarely be a bad thing to be carrying in your hand.

The art is nice, but I would prefer it with... well, less mist I suppose! Brings to mind Ophelia.

I just think it would be fun to counter a Rampant Growth or Primeval Titan then bounce a land. Mana advantage? Not anymore.

If only you could pick different targets for the countering and bouncing. Then it would be way more useful!

Cancel and Boomerang got together to have an okay looking kid.

Bounce Archaeomancer, Mnemonic Wall or Izzet Chronarch. It's a reusable counter. It would cost less mana with Cryptic Command, but it would cost more money. . . . How much does mana sell for on the open market?
