Initiate of the Abyss
"I look with eyes open in the depths of the night, and behold the inevitable truth. The world floats in an infinite void, without meaning or reason; the few fey sparks on her are fleeting embers in the endless, chill night. But secrets lay within the void, and I have begun to plumb for them. The corruption of the human soul becomes clear next to the stark purity of the Void."

Target a single spell the mage knows is incoming, and shares at least one Arcanum with (as with Counterspelling). If the spell is Covert, it becomes Improbable; if Improbable, it becomes Vulgar. If the spell is already Vulgar, Song of the Abyss has no effect.
