    Ah I thought there might be something for quicken. Even so, using your quickened spell to cast a spell 3 levels lower than normal is kinda weak. Though with spells like glitterdust it might be something. The thing is, greater dispel isn't guaranteed to work. If the caster is worth countering, his level will be around yours, making your chances around 50:50. If you had improved counterspell and a variety of schools on each level, you might stop some spells... or waste a readied action if not. Not much better. And you can't ready a full round action, so that kills heighten for counterspelling. EDIT: oh right, does your metamagic thingy fix that too?
