For a 1 drop, this is a very powerful counterspell.

I rescind my previous comment in favour of the following: Flusterstorm prevents your opponent from countering your counter effectively, barring anti-storm effects of their own. It's kinda like a version of Last Word with a mana out, but considerably cheaper.

@endersblade

I disagree in that there are a lot of counterspells which are better than this. This card is super strong, be it for the complete ridiculousness against storm (stifle might be better there though) or how good it is in counter-wars and against blue decks.

It is really bonkers in a legacy deck that runs Nivmagus elemental with delver of secrets and some snapcaster mages and a bunch of 0 cost spells. Flusterstorm can protect the Nivmagus from most removal with a pretty decent storm count from the 0 cost spells, and the excess copies are fed to the Nivmagus to make it as big as you can possibly imagine, and it's fun as hell

Also, as someone already stated, this makes for great combo-protection IN storm decks.

Awesome card. Good for counterspell battles, burn decks, storm decks, Show and Tell decks, and a variety of other harsh things you need to go away *right now.* Also, it's well designed as it doesn't out-perform Spell Pierce and neither Pierce or Flusterstorm outperform Force Spike (as Zoo and aggro are things that still win; and still need counters continually.)


Rant:
Ugh, can they please reprint this somewhere that isn't $15 a piece :(?

This is a good example of money-grabbing IMO; exceptionally useful counterspell stuck as a 1 of in an expensive deck and that's the only place it's ever been printed..

I get this is a Collectible Card game, but you should be able to feasibly collect a card at some point in it's lifetime; selling it only in a deck takes away the excitement of finding it in packs and the practicality of it being printed enough that people can actually collect the thing without spending *tons* of money.

Mode, you're the kind of representative of fans of MLP that I actually like. Not some raging goober like waaaaay too many of them, hence the immediate reaction of most to downvote you into oblivion. Anyways, thanks for being reasonable about it.

Spell Pierce with upside essentially. It storms off the thing you want to counter, so you can essentially Pierce that, or just wait for a stack you don't like and, well, fluster it. For (U) this is insane.

In general, I like the idea of the card, but I really like my counterspells to be more general. Spell Pierce has gotten a lot of text here, but it gets planeswalkers, cranial plating, batterskull, splinter twin etc. Many of the big finishers in some decks can be gotten by spell pierce, especially if you remand them first.

That said, it works amazingly against most control decks. It feels like sideboard material for the most part, but it is good sideboard material.

In EDH, the format for which it was ostensibly printed, it counters a lot of things efficiently. Many big X-spells or other high-casting cost spells get gotten by it almost no matter what, and since most people are casting multiple things per turn, it stays relevant. The only issue is that permanents are often more valuable sources of board presence/card advantage, which is almost more important since 1-for-1ing i... (see all)

Would be great against Tendrils of Agony.
