Voidmage Husher
 
Time Spiral is getting to be a long time ago, and some of its hidden gems are even more hidden now. This is, I feel, one such card. By itself, it's not the most efficient answer to activated abilities - Detainment Spell, Faith's Fetters, and even Squelch probably give you more for their respective costs in a pure return on investment sense. But none of those can attack or block, and none of those are reusable with the sort of instant-speed spells that other cards from that era love - Quirion Dryad and Faerie Tauntings spring to mind. With enough mana and time, the Husher can nullify a wide range of opposing effects, and is often a solid choice for deck space.

Today's card of the day is Voidmage Husher which is a four mana Blue 2/2 with Flash that counters an activated ability and can return to hand when you play a spell.  This is more of a sidedeck choice than maindeck with the higher mana cost and specialized effect.  When used it offers a repeatable counter to some major effects, though a more permanent and less mana intensive option should be preferable outside of responding to meaningful cost effects.
 
In a Limited format with this it belongs in the sidedeck for the most part as the primary effect is too situational and a four mana 2/2 with Flash and a conditional return to hand trigger doesn't offer enough to really shine.  As a sidedeck choice it can offer a nice response to key threats and works well as a later on color pick in Booster when already running Blue.
