It's time to dig deep again as this week we take a look at all of the best counterspells that Blue has to offer, starting from the free all the way up to spells at six or even seven mana! "The best" counterspell isn't always the best choice for your deck, and sometimes a card which other players might rate very lowly is *perfect* for what your deck wants to do!
- Shoutouts this week to www.moxfield.com and @moxfieldmtg for all the great tools for deckbuilding and to https://twitter.com/cobblepott__ for keeping that technology of Shadowbag ticking in the back of my brain
- Also shoutouts to Dana Roach (https://twitter.com/danaroach) for his discussions on the value of high-mana counterspells
- Decklist for Toluz's Sickening Dreams is available at: https://www.moxfield.com/decks/hHChFeHvfUGKydAEMux-gg
