Quote from steve_man »Eh, Force of Will is good, but not great in cube and this is well below it. Negate and Spell Pierce are cubeable, but are definitely tier 3 counterspells in my book, and this probably falls in the same boat. I’d like this more if it didn’t have the turn restriction, but even then it’d probably still be borderline at best to me.
I'm not sure I actually prefer it to Spell Pierce/Negate in this format, and those aren't spells I've historically had success with. Maybe I'm wrong and this is great, since the 3cc failsafe mode is much fairer than FoW's 5cc option, but I've been burned too many times on the noncreature counter clause to get excited for this kind of interaction, regardless of how effective it can be in certain windows.
