This is a block counter.  It will see very little play in t2 due to the 4 mana cost, but is a viable counter in block constructed.  

In limited, it's actually one of the better counters, IMHO, because it improves the quality of your draws.  I don;t usually like 1-for-1 counters in limited, but this is a draw improver, and thusly, worth it.

Constructed: 3
Limited: 4
Current Price: $1.25


If counterspells have to cost 4 mana, then this one is ok. The problem in T2 is that there are better, cheaper counters that will go into decks way before this does. In block it would be rated higher because there are fewer good counters than even OBC had. Limited-wise this card is playable but still rather costly and 4 mana is really hard to hold back due to the generally higher cost of spells in Onslaught.
Constructed 1.5
Limited 2


Seriously, what's up with this card.  It's another counterspell.  It has some uses.

However, I have to give it a thumbs down.  outside of Onslaught block I think the counter from this set that gets the msot use wll be Complicate.

Constructed: 1.7
Limited: 3
