Flashfreeze

Obviously, there are a lot of spells this is useless against. But we're still coming off the multicolor enriched block of Ravnica, so there are quite a few spells ut there that are white or green. Good spells. Of course, it's a sideboard card in Constructed and Limited, and in Limited it's probably not even worth bringng in unless you're facing the R/G guy, but it is still a hard counter for 1U

Constructed- 3
Casual- 2
Limited- 1.7

Flashfreeze

Blue often gets hosed on color hosers, but I think this one is quite decent. Finally, instead of getting some color hoser that does something blue's not normally known for, they get a hoser that's just a counterspell. That's right up blue's alley, as it were. Against many decks, this will simply be a hard counter for 2 mana. That's definitely good news. Blue can have a lot of trouble dealing with an early fatty, and Flashfreeze is an excellent cheap counter to help keep them off the table. It's decent in limited, too. Red/Green is a popular combination in Coldsnap limited, and this becomes a very strong spell while you wait for your opponent's big bomb. There's only so many cards in the format that can deal with Rimescale Dragon, and this is one of them.

Constructed Rating - 2.5
Casual Rating - 2.0
