Friday - Dream Fracture

Now this I'm still unsure about. Arcane Denial saw some play way back in the day, but when Vex was more recently released in Darksteel, it saw no play. This is kinda in the middle of the two; same cost as Vex, but it has a harder color requirement, and you still get to cantrip like with Denial. With Rune Snag still legal I doubt this will see any play right now, but since Rune Snag is rotating out this month it might see some play soon, as there aren't any really good hard counters in Alara.

In limited, I'm not really much of a counterspell fan, but this does stop their bomb and help you dig to yours, so I might play it.

Constructed - 3
Casual - 1
Limited - 2.5

Dream Fracture
 
Dream Fracture is unlikely to see much constructed play, largely because people will be put off by the fact that it lets your opponent draw a card to replace the one you stopped. I wouldn't be surprised if it saw some niche play in Standard, though, as it does counter any spell without conditions, and there are few spells like that left in that format. Anyone with access to older cards like Rune Snag or Memory Lapse, though, probably won't need this.

Dream Fracture

 

Constructed: Good counter spell, but your opponent or whoever the controller gets to draw a card first. Stopping one of their key spells is always good, but what did they draw. Blue and Black Underworld Dreams deck, counter your spell go ahead draw a card take one damage, haha.

 

Casual: Most casual players are not into counter magic around my parts.

 

Limited: Again you have to play it right in order to counter one of there bombs for hitting play. Hopefully they did not draw their second bomb.

 

Overall a good counter spell but Remand and Arcane Denial are alot better.

 

Constructed: 3

Casual: 2

Limited: 3

 

Have a great weekend,

BeJose Dream Fracture 1UU
Instant
Counter target spell. Its controller draws a card.
Draw a card.

Interesting card. It does draw the control deck a new card but it also allows the opposition draw new threats. Then again Wizards has been cutting away at MonoU for awhile now so this is one of the best options there is.

Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 2.5/5
Limited: 2.5/5
