Minamo's Meddling - :2mana::symu::symu:
Counter target spell. That spell's controller reveals his or her hand then discards each card with the same name as a card spliced onto that spell.
It's obviously still garbage, especially since we haven't seen any good splice spells for this set yet, and there's no dominant splice deck in block that I know of. But at least it explains things a bit. Sorry for the confusion
Quote from Orange MageIn general, Machius is right on the button. You should follow his line of thinking.
Quote from Machius »okay so now it's not entirely useless. I can see myself running this in block constructed where there's sure to be red decks abusing glacial ray and probably dampen thought decks as well. In limited it might be sideboard worthy against anyone using the dampen though strategy.
New Rules come out for 1999 6th Edition... "THEY'RE TURNING MAGIC INTO PORTAL! THE GAME IS RUINED! EVERYONE PETITION AND GET THEM TO CHANGE IT BACK!"
New Rules come out for 2010 Edition... "THEY'RE TURNING MAGIC INTO YU-GI-OH! THE GAME IS RUINED! EVERYONE PETITION AND GET THEM TO CHANGE IT BACK!"
New Rules come out for *Reserved for something in 2020* "THEY'RE TURNING MAGIC INTO *currently "simple" game by the more "skilled" players*! THE GAME IS..." etc.
Quote from GigaGuessMeh. Mentally, I'm pretty sure I'm just blue in a parka most of the time.
Darn, JUST got beat to it. Wizards printed a card as a hoser for a Limited deck! They've hit rock bottom. This is now purely an anti-Dampen Thought counter if you want to get the most out of it.
Quote from esternaefil »except the dampen thought deck is mostly dead in limited. as an uncommon, you really need 24 packs in order to be assured of getting one.
Dampen.dec is now a block deck, nothing more.
Quote from Farseer #14 »They are bound to get a good reprinted version of Counterspell if they just keep making more and more and more, right? RIGHT?
