    I really wonder what limited will feel like with this at common.

    • Vectis

      Yeah, that could be interesting. When no one else whats them, you can probably get 3 or 4 in a draft (with some luck ofc)

  • Happy The Cat

    love the new art.

  • ZomboJenkins

    IT’S A COMMON

    • Daniel Behan

      counterspell has been a common in the past

      • ZomboJenkins

        So were a lot of cards that are today at least uncommon

        • Robert FakeLastName

          like lightning bolt :)

        • Daniel Behan

          Fair enough but it isn’t that suprising to see it at common in a set with as high of a power level as this

      • Tyler Alexander Phillips

        BUT the only good art (imo) Counterspell is in a long lost and barely reprinted (costly) duel deck. [$6 common is probably not $6 anymore]

        • Daniel Behan

          The conversation wasn’t really about the art it was about rarity

          • Tyler Alexander Phillips

            Co what set can I go to the store and get a Counterspell in? Last time I checked (although I could be wrong) the duel decks anthology was the only way to get this card. Which was also a good artwork The definition of “rarity” is the real issue. Yes it is a “Common” but the card isn’t actually that common.

          • Daniel Behan

            set rarity vs availability. but it’s not hard to acquire counterspells as long as you don’t care about art. counterspell is actually quite common most card shops have at least a few laying around may not be the specific art you want but that’s the nature of things.

          • Tyler Alexander Phillips

            THIS I can definitely agree with.

  • Mr.Mayhem631

    The flavor text is awesome.

  • Johann Davies

    This is beautiful.

  • Kid Nemo

    I feel like WotC missed the mark here. No flavor text and an ‘explosive’ image in the tiny frame of one of the best known cards in MTG.

    Wish they had either gone with alternative art or gone full size image as seen with Anguished Unmaking. Absent flavor text is really bizarre to me. Rest of the set is obviously bonkers right now BUT just my 2cents on this card in a vacuum ^.^

    • Aplaneswalker

      I think you may be new here. Wizards doesn’t just full art random cards, and you’re not going to pull anything but a land in full art out of a pack. Full art cards are only available for Game Day as a promo for placing top 8, as well as at some big tournaments. They don’t put them in packs.

      • Kid Nemo

        That’s not true at all. Who are you? This is crazy talk…top 8 wha??

        • De’Elgathor

          They’re right. Full art nonland cards are only distributed through events, not in booster packs. “Top 8” refers to the 8 players who make it to the final couple rounds in a tournament.

          • Kid Nemo

            Are you trolling my troll…?

            You guys found 1 flaw in my statement that didn’t meet your world view and you’re logging into a 3rd part messaging system to harp on it. I wish I could IRL counterspell the both of you…

          • De’Elgathor

            You just sounded so naive and inexperienced, I felt the need to correct you nicely.

  • Tyler Alexander Phillips

    if you pull this with isochron scepter its GG in draft/sealed
