    Other than the base "Counterspell" card, I've always liked Forbid :).

    Nothing like tapping out your opponent if they can't pay up!

    I'm all up into Dissipate. Especially against Type 1 player.

    You shouldn't feel alone.

    Desertion, its quite the slap in the face. Dismiss and Dissapate round out my top 3.

    though I am banned from showing up at the store with islands as I am a very slow control player
  13. Rando Freaky Bear

    How can you all pick anything but Force of Will?
  14. rkoelsch Angel Boy

    because he said favorite not which one is the best. This allows some subjective opinions. I like life gain. I don't like life loss. completely subjective not objective.
  15. Rando Freaky Bear

    Can't help it if my favorite also happens to be the best...

    Wow. I'm surprised more people didn't pick Arcane Denial.
    I mean, in multiplayer, it's the friendly counterspell. And in single player, it nets you cards in additon to countering the spell.
    Above all, it's a nice solid 2 mana counterspell. Plus, it embodies the need for the control player to use strategy and to pick the right moment to counter.
    I mean, counterspells add most of the strategy to blue, and all counterspells should be strategy oriented, and not brutally powerful like Absorb and Undermine.
    Force of Will ranks 2nd for me followed by Force Spike.

    I like Arcane Denial too, but still - nothing beats a Deserted Avatar of Woe :D. Both have nice RKF artwork though.

    Arcane Denial's big problem is that, while you may draw one counterspell, they get to draw TWO cards. There's a better chance that they'll draw two business spells than that you'll get something that can handle them both.

    Ertai's Meddling. Not really a counterspell, but if you've got enough mana it is.
