ok two things, first of all NEAL from minni, even if you trickbind, stifle, voidslime.... it doesnt matter, standstill says "whenever a player PLAYS a spell" which means, the spell is played (before a legal target is chosen), standstill triggers, and then THAT spell that was played resolves... which now has no legal target... so your 3 cards dont work to stop standstill... neither will reroute, or shunt, or any spell that "changes the target of a spell or ability"... if standstill is out, then your screwed, unless you have a creature or enchantment out that can destroy enchantments... like tranquil grove, elf lyrist..ect... YOU HAVE TO USE ABILITYS of creatures, enchantments, artifacts...ect. to stop stanstill.... that is why it heavly played in merfolk/aether vial decks, and its just insane in vintage and legacy....I HIGHLY recommend this card for many reasons.. a 2 drop that allows you to draw 3 cards, and stalls your opponent, and it can allow you to search for countermagic for the spell that they just cast... its an ancestral recall with a "mini" stasis built in... this is by far one of the best draw engines available to people who cant afford the mother of all draw engines ancestral recall...

While i do concede that this is a fantastic card, the ability goes on the stack like any other. As long as you have a trickbind, stifle or voidslime... You can counter the triggered or activated ability. So as long as your hand is right, have no fears!!! But still, It is a wonderful card and i have met my end by it many a time. Combined with humility...YUCK!!!

Brapp, you are right about being able to draw into a counter and answer what they played in the first place, but cast and play are the same thing. i think you meant "come into play" but really a great card. really fun with mutavaults (and any other animate lands) as well as aether vials.

This card is just plain amazing. In a format where AEther Vial is being played in Legacy, sliding in a creature and keeping your opponent from drawing is just good. Decree of Justice is just broken when you can play Standstill the cycle DoJ for a bunch of tokens and your opponent can't do much without you drawing a bunch of cards.

This is one excellent blue card. I love it when people sit there because they don't want you to draw the cards. Meanwhile, you build the hand you want so when they finally do...it's curtains. Great for counter and combo decks. Excellent with Spellbook in play or even with Black Vise (or other similar cards). You may even wait until their hand is full and then cast to put the cards into their hand, keep them from casting and watch the Vise kill them.

I have four of these in every blue deck I play.Counter decks are wonderful but the key to winning with them is staying ahead in the hand count. Otherwise you end up in a draw-for-draw situation and have to hope you draw better than the other guy. This keeps your hand full of counters and helps out A LOT.Plus I like using it in my discard deck that has two Underworld Dreams...if they are close to losing, you fire off a spell and sac the Standstill to make them pick up three and take the damage.

This card makes crumbly cheap decks in type 1 playable. It's so playable in 1.5 and type 1 that decks take their name after this card.

This card is sweet. 3 cards for 2 mana, and ideally you could draw a counterspell in them 3 cards and use it to counter whatever your oppenent cast to trigger it in the first place.

Note that Standstill triggers when a person PLAYS a spell, not CASTS a spell. So, as soon as your opponents drop a spell. Standstill triggers, you draw, and then you can still respond to whatever spell they played. So yes, you can counter whatever spell they played.

For so many years Standstill was the control edifice. Now I don''t see it anymore--at all... A little sad if you ask me--{1U}: I think I can win w/o playing anymore spells; what do you think?
