Shouldn't a gold cantrip counterspell pair with black over white? Black and white share countering spells, but black is definitely the second "drawing cards" color after blue.

there's a small problem with it though, that text belongs on a mono u card, it's like making a uw card whos rules txt is "destroy all creatures."

Azorious had a counter-spell just like that, I think it was Overrule or something. Anywho, it seems that cantrip spells exist in every color, so I don't think the cantrip itself is that big of a deal.

fire and stomp is actually unplayable, so nice pick.

Frogged Lightning breaks the color pie completely as now a merfolk deck or a UW control deck has a shock.

Bad judging...

Judging was fine. I agree that the winning card isn't super powerful, but it is definately playable. Also, most of the other cards were either stupidly complicated, over powered, or some mix of both. Also the burn/counter is an interesting design, but it should definately require both red and blue to cast rather than one or the other.

my card was based on the idea it was supposed to be used in tier 1 decks hence, mono red with a shock or force spike jesus thats a dream, also for blue to have a shock would be out of the color pie but so was psionic blast, wasnt it in tier 1 decks for as long as it wasnt in time spiral?

no tier 1 deck would play a 4 mana sorcery that makes an elephant and does 3 to a player, for 3 colored mana at that.

Call of the Herd was a similar card , and it was good... but in today's t2 it wouldn't see a nickel of play.

If nothing else, it would be in the sb against U/X decks. You get 3 damage to a player (cmc3) and a 3/3 (cmc3) all for 4 mana, which is a great deal. And, if it would have had flashback, it would be even better.

And Fog's Lightning looks like an uber fun card.
