Easily the best counterspell in Standard. Sadly, that's because everything else is so bad.

Cancel is fair. Now you add a single blue mana, ask for three other choices, and ask to nearly double up the effect?

I would've called "BROKEN", but then again these people made Skullclamp. Well even then this card was still regrettable.

This is a good card. I like Austere Command more. This one can decide the outcome of one critical situation, but with AC, if you're not in a board position that can be improved by it, you've already won.

This card gets a lot better when you see the words "choose two"
Still, if you already know which ones your going to choose when your designing the deck there are better options. (They also won't break the bank)

This card is retarded. Should have cost at least two mana more, for only one of the effects.

So for the cost of Cancel plus Twiddle you get Cancel and Twiddle on each creature they have? This isn't broken...HOW?

=OOOO can i choose 2 times the same ability?

All of a spells targets must be illegal for a spell to fizzle, so the spell would still be countered. If, for example, they chose bounce a permanent and draw a card, and you bounced in response, the spell would lose its only target and would fizzle.

yeah this card is great and all, but not worth the price tag. Why the h%ll is this thing $15? WTF? was going to get a few for my stasis deck until i saw the price... oh well, there's always sleep, counterspell, obsessive search and boomerang to replace it....

I just traded a shiny Mox Opal for a shiny Cryptic Command. I definitely think I got the better deal.

Having even just the one fits my deck, but also always gives me the perfect answer to any situation every time I draw it.

Perfect blue card.
