I sideboard this in a U/G Elf-ramp deck that runs Thragtusk with Conjurer's Closet, Deadeye Navigator, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, Garruk, Primal Hunter, and Master Biomancer. I can fairly consistently generate 5 mana by T3 and as many as 11 by T5. This card eats Esper control alive, tilts aggro's combat instants and Aurelia's Fury, and even hijacks Murder.

I get that it's a five-mana enchantment that would be typically be hard to slip past control, but oh my God, does it ever feel like this thing should be rated higher! I love it!

Personally I despise sideboards. Basically tailoring your deck just feels cheap to me. I don't care if a card is awesome at destroying a play style, sometimes it works too well. The best matches are the ones that are close and brutal, not ones where someone wins by playing one card that's only in their deck against one particular deck. No-one likes the jerk who plays Boil or Brushfire, regardless of this idea that blue players always have a counterspell available at every given moment.

Anyways, this card isn't sideboardable, it's maindeckable. It's rare to be up against someone who doesn't play instants or sorceries, and it pretty much ruins their day unless they get rid of it - and even then you may get to naturalize something of theirs at the least.

5/5 This card is epic. Harmonize? Sure, I'll draw three cards too. Counterspell? Don't mind if I do.

My play group has nicknamed this card “Curse of Oprah” because we enchant the most instant and sorcery based deck with it and it ends up being hilarious. We played a game that there were two of these on one person. It was the greatest thing ever, he played a blasphemous act and I flashed in a Stuffy Doll in response. I choose the guy who was about to go infinite. It was amazing.

Decent sideboard card against control. This effectively shuts down all their counter spell, and lets you copy there draw cards. Very powerful.

Against creature aggro, not so good.

how would this work in a multiplayer game if my opponent enchants me with it and i play mark of mutany and gain control of one of his creatures can i take his creature then can he take it back then another opponent take it from him????

Maybe I'm not understanding something here but I thought you couldn't counter their counter with this enchantment because the rules state "When the triggered ability resolves, it creates a copy of that spell for each other player." They original counter has already resolved so how can you counter it?

Also I want to know how this card effects Corrupt. Do the copying players have to have swamps or is it taken off the original cast?

@ beer2328

The 'triggered ability' referred to by the ruling is the ability of this card, not the original spell. Copies created by Curse of Echoes resolve before the original spell, so it is entirely possible to use a counterspell copied by Curse of Echoes to counter the original counterspell.

In a game with multiple players, or special rules I would rate this a 3/5
In a 1v1 this easily gets a 5/5

this coupled with curse of exhaustion is pretty much a giant f*ck you

of course that means the match is at least turn 4. (unless you use banned stuff like black lotus) And by then you should have won

Disregard that, anyone who actually thinks by turn 5 you should have won is an idiot and needs to stop playing magic.

This is part of the cycle of Curses (without Green, there were no green Curses) that are older symmetric enchantments made one-sided. This one is Hive Mind (albeit this one says "may"). The others are Curse of Death's Hold (Night of Souls' Betrayal), Curse of Bloodletting (Furnace of Rath), and Curse of Exhaustion (Rule of Law).
