As an additional cost to cast ~, reveal a card from your hand.
Counter target spell with converted mana cost equal to the reveald card's covnerted mana cost.
Real men hold shift. If everyone has their fingers in the pie, then someone is eating fingers.
Suggested revision:

Counter target spell with converted mana cost less than or equal to the revealed card's converted mana cost.

If you ditched the first sentence entirely, and got rid of everything after the third word of the second sentence, this would be just about perfect.

It should probably cost in that casse.

Nah, that just seems like it would be a card that everyone hates, but ends up having three or four different printings in each Standard pool.

Agreed.

I'm not sure, but it might need to be "counter target spell if its cmc is equal to the revealed card's."

Was thinking the same thing.

To be honest I'm not that worried about making a statement with no logical backup because that's what Libe made in the first place. But, you know, whatever.

There was a logic backup, I just didn't share it. The card is really weak and it would be slightly stronger by being less blue intensive. It might even be able to go down to but I'm no playtester.

My my, Libe is alive as well!

I place my agreement that this card could cost . It's a very conditional card that would work best if there were some kind of converted mana cost theme. would be pushing it a little bit perhaps.

Just a tip - if you want people to look at your thread, make the title a little bit more grabbing. Nobody wants to look at just "another boring counterspell variant."

Inorite? I reckon the cause is reverse psychology - if he had given an incredibly exciting and grabbing name to the thread, perhaps we all would have thought "oh my gosh another newb trying to make cards. I'm sure I've seen that one before." Who knows?
All of febb's threads are successful >.>

That is the point Q, I really don't give a crap if people look at my threads, and I design underpowered cards on purpose. :D


And I'm glad you're back(not that you remember me).

Bonus points to Q! You would have gotten a perfect 10 out of 5 bonus points if you had more faith in me. :P
