For those of you who've been paying attention to other sets, this is the exact same game text as Dissension's Voidslime, minus the green mana in the cost. That makes it just a little more flexible as to what decks it goes in, and might give the effect a good chance to be used commensurate with its intrinsic power. Standard in Voidslime's time was a little faster, and had a lot of two-mana counterspells that pushed other things out of tournament consideration; nowadays, the situation is quite different and a three-mana instant is much more strongly positioned.

Disallow (1/23)
Turns out that Voidslime can be shifted from U/G to mono-blue, after all. Disallow is basically an upgraded version of Cancel, splicing the basic Counterspell and Stifle together. You only get one of the two, but the ability to choose affords this spell a lot of flexibility.
Standard lacked a decent counterspell; this isn’t perfect, but it’s better than the slim pickings they had previously. This will pull its weight; I don’t think it’s good enough to escape Standard, but it’s potentially good enough to make a ripple.
Constructed: 4
Casual: 4.5

Commander: 3.25
