I've had one of these sitting in my collection forever. Never quite realised how useful it could be. It will be getting a run from now on.

114.4. A spell or ability on the stack is an illegal target for itself.

Then again...I'll just Stifle that idea...

I guess I can't put this on an Isochron Scepter and target itself.

REPRINT! Perfect for those pesky mages that run a Isochron Scepter, Counterspell combo. Just Isochron Scepter this card then tada take that to your classic combo!

Essential counters fetch lands,wastelands, cycling just to name a few 5/5

Actually, in the case of Isochron Scepter you're casting the Stifle during the resolution of Isochron Scepter's activated ability, and because it's an instant it can therefore be cast in response to that ability because the ability is still on the stack.

It's important to remember that this has no actual function beyond confusing new players, that considered, it comes at the low, low cost of 4 mana.

But if they have Counter on a stick.... what makes you think they'll let you cast Isochron Scepter?

There are two reprints for this in modern.
