Rewind
 
I'm always rather suspicious of powerful counterspells, but Rewind is actually pretty fair as powerful counterspells go. Its power is entirely dependent on what else is available to blue decks: when your baseline is crazily powerful cards like Mana Leak and Rune Snag, it lets you counter three or more spells in one turn, completely remove one of the usual weaknesses of counterspell decks, and utterly take over a game. In other places, having an answer to the end-of-turn or upkeep distraction and not having to give up your Negate or Essence Scatter or Inspiration for later on is "merely" good. It's not in Standard right now, and I doubt anybody is going to get too infuriated when it shows up in casual play, but I think the most important rule of casual anything is the Golden Rule.
 
Until next week, untap four lands, and don't be a jerk.
