I've had great success with this in a mostly-aggro deck. 15/20ths of the time, they pay the life, which when combined with my early-game pressures usually puts them into kill range. And the rest of the time (when they can't pay the life), it stops whatever they cast to try to recover.

Yeah, they get to choose, but both choices are great for me and watching them agonize over the lesser of two evils only makes the game more fun. And I can usually kill whatever blocker they play anyway, so I want them to pay the life. But by all means, keep slamming this card; the fact that so many people think it's underpowered makes it that much more satisfying when it wins me the game.

Seeing as no one seems to have mentioned it yet, Vexing Shusher turns this situational -at-best Black Counterspell into a BlackRed or BlackGreen Cancel.

Hey, ever hear the one about the blonde who wanted to run Dash Hopes? She put it in her infect deck!

btw guys, scumbling is a troll. I think he and majinara are brothers or something. Always hating on high-rated cards to get a rise out of people.

lol at all the "haters" comments.

I'm sorry to break it on you guys, but this card does absolutely nothing. Doesn't matter what kind of deck you are playing, swapping all the dash hopes for extra lands is always going to be statistically better, just by reducing the number of times you get mana screwed. Which is a higher percentage than the times the opponent will cast a MUST-counter spell while being at 5 life.

So many good memories of casting this spell, especially in pairs. "Oh, you're paying the five? BAM! How about ten?! Is your Tarmogoyf going to make you up that much? Oh by the way, my Guul Draz Vampires are big and unblockable now..."

Question. If I cast Dash Hopes to counter a target spell and someone pays the 5 life to counter Dash Hopes, can I then cast another counter spell to counter the originally targeted spell? How would the rulings illustrate that?

For 2B mana an opposing player loses five life or has a spell countered! When I first discovered this card, in a collection that a good friend gave to me for free, I almost couldn't believe it. Insanely good card.
