Mashup of Daze and Delirium for Challenge # 001. The ACC isn't really necessary - the card would be interesting without it - but I think it works with it as well.

I approve of the ACC. Some more harsh ACCs need to float around... it would keep a lot more games honest.

I'm somewhat surprised this design space hasn't been explored more. There's Desertion, Draining Whelk, and Overwhelming Intellect, as well as the sideways Gather Specimens and Spelljack. But creature spells have a pair of other convenient variables to read, power and toughness, that it makes sense to do something with.

It may have something to do with the fact that it's difficult to word, since the countered spell is never actually a creature.

True. I was unsure between "that creature's power", "that creature spell's power" and "that creature card's power".

Hee! I made Essence Backlash. I guess it is pretty obvious.
