10/1/2008 The second sentence will exile the targeted creature if it would be put into a graveyard this turn for any reason, not just due to lethal damage. It applies to the targeted creature even if Magma Spray deals no damage to it (due to a prevention effect) or Magma Spray deals damage to a different creature (due to a redirection effect).
