Umm... no thanks.
Hard counters cost 3, and sometimes have a benefit even then.

Counters that cost 4 or more need to do something besides "Counter target spell" (because that's what this does: there are few if any reasonable situatuins where someone casts a spell you wnat gone and has 6 open)

Technically splashable, but no thanks.

Lady and gentlemen.... I present to you the Edition War without Contrition, the War of the Web, the Mighty Match-up! We're using standard edition war rules. No posts of substance. Do not read the other person's posts with comprehension. Make frequent comparison to video games, MMOs, and CCGs. Use the words "fallacy" and "straw man", incorrectly and often. Passive aggressiveness gets you extra points and asking misleading and inflammatory questions is mandatory. If you're getting tired, just declare victory and leave the thread. Wait for the buzzer... and.... One, two, three, four, I declare Edition War Five, six, seven eight, I use the web to Go!

D&D should not return to the days of blindfolding the DM and players. No tips on encounter power? No mention of expected party roles? No true meaning of level due to different level charts or tiered classes? Please, let's not sacrifice clear, helpful rules guidelines in favour of catering to the delicate sensibilities of the few who have problems with the ascetics of anything other than what they are familiar with.

Just a quick note on the MMORPG as an insult comparison... MMORPGs, raking in money by the dumptruck full. Many options, tons of fans across many audiences, massive resources allocated to development. TTRPGs, dying product. Squeaking out an existence that relys on low cost. Fans fit primarily into a few small demographics. R&D budgets small, often rushed to market and patched after deployment. You're not really making much of an argument when you compare something to a MMORPG and assume people think that means bad. Lets face it, they make the money, have the audience and the budget. We here on this board are fans of TTRPGs but lets not try to pretend none of us play MMORPGs.

Telling someone to move over a few feet is magical now? :| I weep for this generation.
Given the laziness and morbid obsesity amongst D&Ders, being able to convince someone to get on their feet, do some heavy exercise, and use their words to make them be healthier must seem magical.

Not if you don't have a second blue source. But practically speaking yeah this is worthless.

Not strictly worse than Cancel because cancel costs 2 blue, this costs 1.



Ok, still pretty bad when we have Scatter Arc in the same block.
Decks I run
Show
I currently run a deck for Standard, Modern, Commander and Legacy. For standard, I have a typical, horribly budget Rakdos Deck Wins. For Modern, I have a B/G/U/W Draw-go Reanimator featuring my favorite creature, Wurmcoil Engine. For Legacy, I'm trying too hard to break Pyromancer Ascension. I also run a Naya Zoo with all the oldies. For Commander/EDH, I'm running The Mimeoplasm. A little morals thing about me, I like winning through combos, but not infinitely. However quiet, I am a Christian, so feel free to tell me you are too, it's always a relief.

I'm still waiting for the card that costs 6B and counters a spell unless its controller pays 10...

No, Wizards, I'm not serious.

Wow, I'm calling op on that right now.
Could that much mana even be produced?

Elf ball says "Easy."  
I think they want us to build our own Mana Leak with this and Goblin Electromancer.

My thoughts. But then I can just build my own Counterspell...

Just bleh.
Just like Dreamstone Hedron is Three Mind Stones, this is Two Mana Leaks.

Which kind of defeats the whole reason to play Mana Leak.

Mindstatic? Why not Mind Static?

If the limited format is as slow as they say, this will be the only hard counter you can splash, or use.
Yea card made for limited interaction only. I don't see anyone using this as a counter unless they got rid of all other counter spells that cost 3cmc haha. It is easy splash for limited and will counter spells there.

Target spell becomes a 4/4 Dragon token with
flying and loses all other abilities.

Counter target spell unless it's controller pays . If you payed

Counter target spell unless its controller pays . You may copy that spell.
The copy is countered unless its controller pays . You may choose new targets for the copy if applicable.

Okay I'm done.

That creature doesn't untap during its controller's next untap step.

Cancel + Hands of Binding - cipher.  I might play that for this cost.
