I was called "a fcked noob" and told to "get a tier 1 deck" just now... But maybe he had grounds on the first part. I play Solar Blast, he responds by playing... eh, some spell where he draws cards then discards. After he's done discarding, he plays Counterspell on Solar Blast. How can he play Counterspell if the chain has already begun resolving, i. e. his draw cards spell's effect begins to take place?
