Quote from GoST- »I think a functional counterspell reprint is too strong for modern. Exiling a land from the graveyard seems pretty negligible as an additional cost. Non-blue fair decks wouldn't be able to keep up with functional counterspell, Snapcaster mage and Ancestral Vision. It would eliminate big mana as a bad match up, skew the more-or-less even midrange match up in blue's favor and do little to nothing against linear non-dredge aggro that UXX is already decently good against.
I'd like to see something like this:
1UU: counter target spell, the converted mana cost of this card is UU when it's in your hand.
At that point you might as well just have it exile on hitting the bin.
