the best command card and possibly one of the best in its block

Second best command. Well, everyone already knows that this card absolutely rocks. 5/5.

I got a question about this card. So, suppose one guy plays Cryptic Command, choosing to counter a spell and bounce a permanent. Then, the other person, in response, uses Vedalken Mastermind (or something similar to that effect) to bounce the permanent that was targeted back to their hand. So, Cryptic Command lost its bounce target. So, does the whole spell fizzle or is the other spell still countered?

Also, this card is awesome, for the record.

Wtf Wizards?

Let's switch the power levels of Cryptic Command and Incendiary Command.

Cryptic (the worst of the commands):
Counter target Sorcery spell
Return target creature to its owner's hand
Change all instances of a color word on target spell or permanent
Look at the top four cards of your library and put them back in any order
(I don't know if all of that text could fit on a card)

Incendiary (best command, $10, this would be an instant)
Deal 4 damage to target creature or player
Deal 2 damage to each creature
Destroy target artifact or land
(hmmm..... so far, this is still about $3)
Put a 5/5 red dragon creature token with flying in to play

hmmmm...... obviously and overly useful- I like it. Perhaps the dragon would actually be a 4/4.

Cryptic Command, Jace, The Mindsculpter, and Snapcaster Mage all bring one of thing's that used to define the color blue.
No, I'm not talking about flexibility or card advantage.
I'm talking about blue's near exclusive access to absolutely broken cards.

I think this card goes perfectly with Kaho. In effect, you put it on hold for whenever you need it. Of course, he goes well with just about any counterspell.
