Sphinx of the Final Word
I really like how this card's name alludes to Last Word, one of the most famous counterspells of the Mirrodin era. I also really like powerful high-end creatures, and this one is borderline unsolvable. I suppose if you can afford this, your opponent can probably afford End Hostilities or Final Judgment, but there are few creatures that make you feel as powerful when you cast them. Actually, there's one more thing I like about this card: making instants and sorceries uncounterable makes it more than a sideboard card for tournament decks, and gives it a role to play in enabling the sorts of big spells that Commander loves so much.
Constructed: 4/5
