Looks like I'm gonna be right again! :P :P

Although, to be fair, Stonecloaker would be my second choice. Bounces CIP dudes, counters graveyard targeting abilities/spells. However, my choice still goes to Aven Mindcensor, simply because of how many MORE/what better spells it can "counter". Gifts Ungiven now becomes "Draw four cards, then discard two of those cards.", hoses fetchlands, tutors, etc. Plus, the difference between Aven Mindcensor and Stonecloaker is that Stonecloaker answers ONE card (unless you choose to make it bounce itself). Aven Mindcensors stops one card and leaves a static effect to FURTHER screw over your opponent. [/b]

Aven Mindcensor, thought Stonecloaker is a close second.

ARGH! This one is tough. I want to keep my streak! I've cut down my choices to:

Academy Rector
Hokori, Dust Drinker
Magus of the Disk

In the end...I went with Magus of the Disk. (C'mon, people! SUPPORT!)

Windborne Muse, although I like Dawn Elemental, Cho Manno and Commander Eesha too. Defensive strategies win EDH.

My favorite is without question Commander Eesha, but the vote isn't for "favorite."

I guess I would have to go with Academy Rector. Tutors are good in any highlander format, and tutors which have seen play in eternal formats and put the card they search for directly into play and are the only card that do what they do without preventing you from playing spells for the rest of the game, well, they're really good.

EDIT: I also want to add an honorable mention to Wishmonger. It is such a delight to see one of them on the field. Plus if someone tries to use it to break through your defenses by giving their creature(s) protection from white, you just point out that their attacker(s) can no longer be shielded by your Monger and the attacker often promptly gets Putrefied, Prophetic Bolted, etc. Great politicking card. Monger also happens to kill Genju of the Realm, so it must be good.

(Edited again to fix pronoun problems)

What good enchantments are searchable by Academy Rector? I tried looking and kind of gave up halfway.

I can think of:

Debtor's Knell
Dovescape
Form of the Dragon
