This is arguably THE best counterspell in the game. You can slither your way out of anything with Force of Will, and although expensive($) it is a great addition to any blue control deck.

This is possibly the best counterspell ever made. It is an excellent way to counter spells on the opponent's turn if you tap out on yours, or even if you're in a counter war and have no mana left to use. The best thing about this card is the surprise value. Most players will think you cannot counter when they see your land tapped, but only the smart players will realize you could be holding back a Force of Will.

actually, the ability to counterspell when tapped out is matched...

e.g. thrawt
foil
daze

to name a few...

Why pay a life and remove a card from the game? There are other, less expensive alternatives...

Only Mana Drain Buy can hold a candle to this one. There it depends on the deck and opponent - you can't truly say either is better flat-out.

Grotto: you can't say that this is the best card ever made. No way. More like the best counterspell ever, but not the best card ever. No way. Black Lotus is better than this. Morphling is better than this. Spiritmonger is better than this. Birds of Paradise is better than this. Need I go on? Actually, right now, the dumb @$$e$ of our magic playing world today have decided that this isn't even close to being the best card ever; they've decided to make Force of Will eat the dust of "Segovian Leviathan" in the voting. Now THAT is just gay. Eager cadet is better than segovian Leviathan. By the way; people keep on arguing whether a creature's mana cost is a good deal or not for the creature. Here's a good way to tell whether a creature is a good deal or not. Add the power and toughness together. Remember that number, then multiply the number of mana it costs total by two, and if the mana cost doubled id less than or equal to the power+toughness, it is a good deal. First strike, trample, and flying count as an extra 1 to the power and 1 to the toughness, and haste, double-strike count as 2. Don't play a card if the mana cost is four or more above the combined power+toughness unless it has insane abilities, Like Akroma, Angel of Wrath, or iridescent angel. For example, Spiritmonger costs 5 for a 6/6. 5x2=10, and 6+6=12, so the mana doubled is two less than the combined power+toughness, so it is a really good deal. Then you add the crazy abilities and you've got a great card.

Morphling is 3/3 for 5. 5x2=10, 3+3 = 6. 6/10= morphling sucks. you dont have an absolute theorem there bud, it works great for spirit monger but lots of times not much else. Mundungu Buy is 1/1 for 3. 1+1=2 3x2 = 6. Wow, 3/6, Mundungu most be the wost card ever, funny everyone thinks its so good.

Levi15 your math skills are messed up boy. You dont rate the entire card on the cost. So exactly as MagicBome said. so your saying with Morphling being a 3/3 for 5 is awful. But if you consider its actually a 5/1 flyer cant be targeted for 4 mana. Hmm pretty awsome. Now that does only work for spiritmonger. Or does it. You get a 5/3 pro black uncommon out of posest centuar. You can get a 6/6 pro black flyer out of mystic enforcer for 2 colorless 1 white 1 green. Yeah. So your also saying that in a sense Phage sucks. 4+4=8 when her cost is 9. Hmm. I see. What about Elvish Piper. 1+1=2 for 4 mana. Awful card huh? GTap=ANY CREATURE CARD FROM YOUR HAND INTO PLAY. Including an opponents with Grinning Totem. Now Akroma dont even get me started if you badmouth that card. next thing we know your gunna start bad mouthing cards like two headed dragon or nantuko shade. Wake up and latch onto a pro and dont let go.

Force of Will is in my opinion the best counterspell. DON'T go saying Thwart and Foil and the sad sad card Daze match it, cuz theyre nowhere near as good.

This is a very powerful and deceptive counterspell. I maintain that Counterspell is the most powerfull of the counterspells simply because 1 {U} card is a big sacrifice in my eyes. It is very worthy however to use because it can help you when you are desperate though.

Very good...
