I am sorry to crush your dreams, but Counterspell got officially disconfirmed in the current Weekly MTG stream. But as stated previously hoping for Counterspell was naive anyways.
With putting the real Counterspell into the first straight to modern set, they would have just killed a ton of designspace, as they would make all other 2CMC counters obsolete at an instant. Thereby limiting their options for future sets.

Quote from Hammer »Mana Drain is likely the single most broken instant ever to see print. No, Force of will is not close. The card was a mistake and should have never seen print. Also an utter failure to the colour pie.

Quote from Thenarus »I used to be against the idea of Pernicious Deed being Modern legal despite loving the card because of the fact that it might keep fast aggro down. Really though, isn't midrange supposed to chew up aggro? Deed would be like a slightly more expensive Wrath, with the upsides of versatility and instant-speed activation. It's hard to imagine decks like Humans, Spirits, or Phoenix falling off due to GBx getting Deed. It can hit manlands, but misses planeswalkers, so all sorts of interesting and skill-testing lines could come about by having it.
Daze, Misdirection, Price of Progress, Hymn to Tourach. All of these cards are very high risk, and push all sorts of existing archetypes out of competitive viability.
Quote from SilvosRogueElemental »How many planeswalkers can they realistically print in one set? Are we even expecting them to print more than 3 or 4?
Quote from Velrun »I decided it was okay to ‘up’ this thread since we are not in middle of any spoiler season right now.
If you have ever lost fairh in humanity, please read on.
In this very thread, Fyrwulf and I had a bet. A bet that I ended up winning. The price was a very expensive card. I told people about my bet with Fyrwulf and everyone assumed the guy would not live up to his promise but Fyrwulf is the man (or woman)
Yes Ladies and gentlemen. Today I received a foil Modern Masters Pact of Negation in the mail shipped from another continent free of charge. He even paid the shipping price.
Sorry for upping an old thread.
