Hindering Light Hindering Light English

Instant, WU (2)

Counter target spell that targets you or a permanent you control.

Draw a card.

Centuries of careful practice have elevated the casting of protective spells to an art form. What little offensive magic remains on Bant stands little chance of breaching them.

Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 10/1/2008: Hindering Light can target a spell that has multiple targets, as long as at least one of those targets is you or a permanent you control.
  • 10/1/2008: You may choose to target a spell that “can't be countered.” If you do, the first part of Hindering Light's effect won't do anything, but you'll still get to draw a card.
