There's a fine balance with these taxing counterspells - something like Mana Leak is basically a hard counter on most turns because decks usually want to use all their available mana as often as possible, while something like Force Spike or Mana Tithe can become irrelevant as the opponent draws more lands. I wouldn't think of a card like Censor as your not being guaranteed to counter something; I'd think of it as giving you a chance to surprise an opponent when they're trying to commit a lot of mana to something. The cycling effect does make it a lot better, too, as you don't have to get stuck with it if it's not going to be effective.
