    Default question about paying kicker cost and counterspell in mtg

    When I play a spell that has a kicker cost like Benalish Lancer

    Do I get to decide whether to pay the kicker only after other player decides whether to counterspell it or not? (obviously I wont pay the kicker if he is going to counter the spell)

    No. You pay the whole cost - including kicker - all at once, before any player gets the chance to respond.

    It is an additional cost to play the spell, so yes it is all together.

    since a kicker is part of the mana cost of the spell does it add to the spell's color for example is a Cetavolver considered blue, red and green?

    No. A card's colour is determined by one of three things:
    1. The mana symbols in its cost (in Cetavolver's case, it's just blue, regardless of whether or not the kickers were paid).
    2. Text that gives it a colour (like with Wheel of Fate).
    3. An outside ability giving it a different colour (Tidal Visionary).
