Creature — Viashino Shaman

When Shivan Sand-Mage enters the battlefield, choose one — • Remove two time counters from target permanent or suspended card. • Put two time counters on target permanent with a time counter on it or suspended card. Suspend 4—{R} (Rather than cast this card from your hand, you may pay {R} and exile it with four time counters on it. At the beginning of your upkeep, remove a time counter. When the last is removed, cast it without paying its mana cost. It has haste.)

Legallity

06/07/13
If you can’t cast the card, perhaps because there are no legal targets available, it remains exiled with no time counters on it, and it’s no longer suspended.
06/07/13
If the second triggered ability of suspend (the one that lets you cast the card) is countered, the card can’t be cast. It remains exiled with no time counters on it, and it’s no longer suspended.
06/07/13
If the first triggered ability of suspend (the one that removes time counters) is countered, no time counter is removed. The ability will trigger again during the card’s owner’s next upkeep.
06/07/13
Exiling a card with suspend isn’t casting that card. This action doesn’t use the stack and can’t be responded to.
06/07/13
A creature cast using suspend will enter the battlefield with haste. It will have haste until another player gains control of it (or, in some rare cases, gains control of the creature spell itself).
05/01/07
When Shivan Sand-Mage enters the battlefield, if there are no suspended cards and no permanents with time counters on them, you can’t choose the second mode. You’ll have to choose the first mode, and will have to choose a permanent as a target (though, in this case, the ability won’t do anything when it resolves).
