I gave my Spellskite a Pemmin's Aura. Spellskites love Pemmin's Auras.

@adrian.malacoda: Depends on the order that you redirect the spell/ability and activate Pemmin's Aura. You activate Pemmin's Aura giving Spellskite shroud, then on the stack you redirect the spell/ability to Spellskite. Spellskite's ability resolves first and redirects the spell/ability, then Pemmin's Aura's ability resolves and gives Spellskite shroud, then the spell/ability tries to resolve but can't, and the spell/ability fizzles.

Runs perfectly with Soul Sisters (or against it, as NuckChorris pointed out). To run it with Soul Sisters, it would be ideal to drop this before Phyrexian Metamorph, so the last time it enters the battlefield, it can copy this. Then, follow it up with a Livewire Lash, and any targeting spell. Spellskites play pass the spell around for awhile... GG.

Also, it took me awhile to figure this out, but this does indeed stop Exarch Twin, but ONLY by redirecting Splinter Twin while it's on the stack, because it can't redirect Deceiver Exarch's etb ability.

@Hoffmkr, your opponent was robbed in that situation. If Spellskite is already targetted by Mutagenic Growth, and you activate its ability targetting that same Mutagenic Growth - Spellskite isn't 'becoming' targetted by an instant or sorcery, it's remaining targetted by it, so Wild Defiance won't trigger off of the Spellskite ability activations.

Of course, it does work with 2x Spellskite, though you'll be giving each Spellskite half the buffs each.

This guy is REALLY, REALLY good. Much better than too many people think.

This is the kind of card that sets Standard on fire.

I have the feeling a lot of players are seriously overvaluing Spellskite due to not understanding what it can and cannot redirect.

If Skite is not a legal target of that spell or ability at the time of the activation, you can't redirect said spell or ability.

I want to play this while my opponent has a Tezz 2.0.

And I want my opponent to forget it's on the field when he uses Tezz's -1.

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.

'ok, so I'll naturalize your Meishin, the Mind Cage..."

"AHA!!! Spellskite!"

"Then I'll play Might of Oaks on my general."

"AHA! Spe-- oh..."


Still, Spellskite is an amazing creature to play in any blue EDH deck. Who knows what you'll save yourself from.
