actually the designers understood the card perfectly, and i'd suggest you look at it again, or at least read all the useful comments already posted. for my addition, Hive Mind.

limited, yes, but a cool card not without application.

3 stars just because it's so cool. But really, it was probably important in the set to fight off suspended cards.

I just mortgaged my house in order to get a Black Lotus! ...Well, I've just paid about 50p for a Nix, and I'm going to go ahead and counter said Lotus.

Would never use this outside of a sideboard

Ixnay on the ascadecay! Limited use, but it does its job well in those cases.

This card could almost be considered as part of a vertical cycle:
Mental Misstep - Common that cares about CMC 1
Spell Snare - Uncommon that cares about CMC 2
Nix - Rare that cares about CMC 0

Some day I'd like to build a deck of very picky counterspells like these, as well as others like Intervene, Confound, Spell Pierce, and Second Guess. With enough card draw and transmute support, as well as maybe some Essence Scatters and Dissipates to smooth out the corners, every game would be like solving a puzzle!

Chancellor of the Spires, Diluvian Primordial, Knowledge Exploitation, Memory Plunder, Mindclaw Shaman, Planeswalker's Mischief and a bunch of others, stops Rebound, stops the Cipher mechanic, a bunch of Imprint effects, stops "copy target spell" effects and laughs at Jace, Architect of Thought's ultimate. Can counter Hand of Emrakul's usual entrance.

In the art, the color pentagon is being shattered. (The color pentagon is the one on the back of the card.)

Anybody else thinking it would be more awesome if it was like this:
Turn to Nothing: {1}{U}{U}
Counter target spell
If a player casts a spell without paying mana for it, you may pay {0} instead of paying the mana cost of this spell if you are targeting that spell.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
