"If the named card is revealed,..."

I like it. It's a fine way to add that extra value Cancel tends to need. It's probably too good; it's sort of the bastard child between Gitaxian Probe and Preordain, all at instant speed and with a counterspell option attached. I think you should just make the top half Gitaxian Probe, really. It still keeps the theme and helps your future counterspells.

It also made me think of this card:

Expected Failure
Enchantment (U)
When Expected Failure enters the battlefield, secretly write the name of a card on paper.
Reveal the paper, sacrifice Expected Failure: Counter target spell with the secret name.

Preferred Pronoun Set:
Edited to fix the wording and reduce the scry amount from 3 to 1.
