Freeze is a slang term used by Magic R&D to describe spells that tap a target permanent and prevent untapping during its controller's next untap step.[1] This mechanic is represented in art as ice or coldness (e.g. Crippling Chill).

If an enchanted creature doesn't untap permanently its is called Lockdown. This is one of blue's primary creature answers in Limited. It's used almost solely on Auras.[1]
