This can be a surprisingly good counter but the drawback will force this card to a max of 2 per deck or a SB card. I have mainboarded 4 in my UW control and I found that drawing it early instead of a different counter hurt me me quite a bit. Missing a land drop per say can be doom for control.

However for GB Polymorph this card is nothting short of amazing. Counter a counter for 2 return a garden or depths and most likely still have land advantage if your poly couldn't get through.

Overall late game when you have your mana set this rocks but early paying 3 for cancel is better.

2.5/5 cause its draw can hurt. I would rather take damage and counter than lose a land on the board.

It would have been nice in Zendikar or Worldwake where it would actually benefit from Landfall interactions.

Good against Spreading Seas to replay your Celestial Colonnade.

I'm dying for the day someone plays a Spreading Seas on my other land in a U/Whatever deck, then I cancel their next spell and destroy the enchantment with this guy. :D :D

5/5 in the current set because of Landfall. Huge synergy with a number of strong blue creatures including Roil Elemental and Windrider Eel.

Ok in mono blue, this card is amazing. Its no counterspell, this is true, but in blue control, returning a land to your hand really doesnt matter, and can sometimes, be very uselful. Its really a great card. 5/5

At first, I, like probably the majority of standard-playing blue mages out there, saw this card and thought: Okay, it's alright. Definitely not a Counterspell, but it might be a little useful. So wrong. I put three in my UW control (along with four negates), had one and a playset of Flashfreeze sideboarded. By the end of the night, I was almost always wanting the fourth Deprive maindecked, even over some of the flashfreezes against red and green decks. Of course, I was also running Regress, letting me bounce anything that I needed to, until the land back to hand was not a problem.
Just don't underestimate this card. I know it looks "meh," but it really does work well in Standard.
4.0/5.0 for Eldrazi standard.

Remember that you can return one of the lands you tapped to pay it's casting cost.
As has already been said, great with landfall abilities. I'm looking at you Roil Elemental.

Great card so many lands to bounce back Halimat Depths and Sejiri Refuge age my favorites, add in prot fron enchant lands?, golden. Late game this feels better than Counterspell.

Can feed Forbid's buyback.
