10/4/2004 The decision to counter a spell or destroy a permanent is a decision made on announcement before the target is selected. If the spell is redirected, this mode can't be changed, so only targets of the selected type are valid.
9/16/2007 You can change the text of this spell after announcing it to change the color that it will affect. This works, because the color isn't part of the targeting requirement.
9/16/2007 Note that Pyroblast can target any spell or permanent, not just a blue one. It checks the color of the target only on resolution.
9/16/2007 If there are no legal targets for either of the modes, you can't choose that mode.
