Flavor text wise whirlwind denial.

Budget/underrated arcane denial it's finally getting talked about in some circles which is cool.

Pet card swan song it always finds a place into my finalized lists.

Power fierce guardianship.

I don't know why but I have a soft spot for plain old Counterspell.

Really like Swan Song & Pact of Negation to protect my win cons though. Fierce Guardianship is really good as well as is Force of Negation.

Test of Talents, Invasive Surgery and Lose Focus are my favorite kind of counter spells. It may not be suprise that Surgical Extraction has a sweet spot in my heart.

I feel for EDH Wizard's Retort does not get the attention it deserves. There are just so many wizards that are also common commanders I want to stuff it as a second Counterspell in every deck with a wizard commander and blue.

Pact of Negation. Pulled it from a booster and didn't quite understand how powerful it is until I started playing with it. And does it do work? Yes, lots of it.

I, too, share the same sentiment for counter spells and the others you mentioned. Also, Mana Drain is one of my personal favorites.

Right! I also feel that way towards Patron Wizard in edh.

I really don't have a favorite counter spell. I am just not a blue counter spell type of player. I prefer to make the action/something happen not wait until action/something happens while holding up mana.

That's strange, because it sounds like you tried to counter this thread.

Also, Force of Will.

Hi,

I love them all!

I'm pretty happy that counterspell is legal in modern now. My favorite one, cause of the surprising effect is Mana Tithe.
