Whenever someone casts a spell with a target other than Spellskite, I respond "that's not how you pronounce Spellskite."

(That moment you realize that this can not only redirect kill spells from your creatures, but can also redirect buffs from your opponent's creatures.)

Man, this guy is going to be frustrating as hell for anyone who's trying to flip their Garruk Relentless. I just have this image of him going out, choosing a target, meticulously tracking and stalking his prey, jumping down to fight it... and then he realizes at the last second that it's a Spellskite. For like the seventh time that day.

Seems like that would be infuriating enough to just flip him to his cursed form regardless of his loyalty counters.

Since, for some reason, gatherer doesn't want to list the rulings, here are the pertinent bits about this card from the New Phyrexia FAQ:

•You can activate Spellskite's ability even if Spellskite wouldn't be a legal target for the spell or ability. However, the target of that spell or ability will remain unchanged.

•If changing one target of a spell or ability to Spellskite would make other targets of that spell or ability illegal, the targets remain unchanged.

•If the spell or ability has multiple instances of the word "target," you choose which target you're changing to Spellskite when Spellskite's ability resolves.

•By activating Spellskite's ability multiple times, you can change each target of a spell or ability with multiple instances of the word "target" to Spellskite, one at a time.

•The target of the spell or ability won't change unless Spellskite fulfills all the targeting criteria, even if multiple instances of the word "target" are used. For example, you can'... (see all)

If Splinter Twin + Deceiver Exarch is going to become popular, which I think it could, this might be a very good card to invest in early...

Tired of people saying he doesn't stop the Phyrexian Metamorph/Soul Sisters combo for Infinite life. Even if they get to chose what the Metamorph copies, this ability changes the target of the Leonin Relic Warder ability. This card itself is outstanding, and is often a behind the scenes key to victory to whoever gets it out.I'll give it a 5.

Redirect someone activating Tezzeret's -1 ability, or use him to protect yourself or your own creatures / artifacts. Also as a 0/4 he can also block pretty effectively. Lastly, Livewire Lash has excellent synergy with this guy.

This card, Phyrexian Metamorph and Dismember are probably the three strongest contenders for best card in this set. The prevalence of this card will really see to hold a lot of other decks in check - particularly great is getting out TWO of these guys - because the odds that someone will be able to remove both of them in order to get something off on them is very slim - unless they're using a board wipe. And, honestly, forcing your opponent to use a board wipe on creatures that aren't actually threatening them is very strong itself - and is more or less the point of Spellskite anyways.

Great card for any deck that can take advantage of this redirect but now I've got an excuse to play aggro blue with all those "when this is the target of spell or ability, destroy blah blah blah" stuff.

Can you steal an equipment with him because equipping is an ability?

4.5, the Absolute best things about this card is the fact that it is shaped like a wall, but not actually a wall, he can wear swords, and protect from most burn, all for a 2 mana artifact that can go in every colour.

I wish this had defender so it could interact better with Overgrown Battlement. Great card to protect your combo though. Doesn't stop Go for the Throat sadly. Also it's kind of ironic how this thing stops the Twin Exarch combo, but will likely be used by it.

So if I have a Livewire Lash equiped, and play a giant growth, can I trigger him multiple times to trigger the lash over and over?
