nice in aggro to counter sweepers and such. Unfortunately monoblue aggro is harder than it sounds to play in standard.

I run three in my Mono Blue Control. Mana Leak works early game, but late game this is what you want. Bounce Halimar Depths when you can spare the land or, if they cast something during your turn and you haven't played a land, use this and return an Island that you tapped for mana and then just play the land again. In that rare scenario, it is better than Counterspell. One of the few good cards out of Rise of the Eldrazi. 4.5*

I don't know what this card is doing in ROE. It sets you back in a format that wants you to ramp. Plus, it makes a ton more sense in Zendikar or Worldwake with landfall around. It would have been nice to pull the Halimar Depths trick in Limited, too.

Oh, and also waiting until you have no land in your hand (which can happen fairly often in Blue, I'd say) and then casting it for what is essentially free.

Its a BlueBlue counterspell that gets stronger as the game progresses. And if you run Halimar Depths, you can soften the drawback up a bit.
