I believe Volcre was saying this nulls cruel, but in the right case, it will kill an opponent

and yes, banefire + this is painful and evil, you will burn in a banefire for thinking that combo as I swerve and twincast it back into you

Wild Richochet vs. Cruel Ultimatum wouldn't work 1-vs-1, but in multiplayer (especially Emperor) it'd be absolutely hilarious. And for a reasonable cost - playing Fork and Alter Reality (which together have the same effect as Richochet) has the same CMC as this one card. Not bad!

"Wild Ricochet would also fit the color pie as a mono-blue card, or a blue-red hybrid card, or a blue-red gold card."
Devin Low, Head Developer of Magic.
So one day, this card can be available in red, blue, hybrid and gold. That would be great. It's a great card, and I'd love to see it in blue, either mono-blue or hybrid. And gold if it's at 3 CMC, but that may be a tad overpowered.

This spell is replaced by Reverberate if you're copying your own burn spells. Otherwise it still runs as an amazing ace-in-the-hole again opponent spells. I personally run both.

Swerve stapled onto Reverberate.
I love it. Sure it's expensive, but the ability to double an opponent's maxed out Fireball or something with this and chuck it back at 'em? Well worth it.

I don't get why this isn't considered a staple. It basically gives 3 for 1 card advantage. Opponent tries to Terminate one of your creatures, you cast this, he ends up losing a Terminate and his two best creatures. He tries to Lightning Bolt you or your creature, ends up wasting a bolt and taking 6 damage. Lorwyn cards are ridiculous.

This would be really funny against Cruel Ultimatum...

Centurion you are incorrect. When you copy a spell you copy it word for word, that includes any kickers or x costs. see the rules for twincast

@ UltimaCenturion:

706.9. To copy a spell or activated ability means to put a copy of it onto the stack; a copy of a spell isn't cast and a copy of an activated ability isn't activated. A copy of a spell or ability copies both the characteristics of the spell or ability and all decisions made for it, including modes, targets, the value of X, and additional or alternative costs. (See rule 601, "Casting Spells.") Choices that are normally made on resolution are not copied. If an effect of the copy refers to objects used to pay its costs, it uses the objects used to pay the costs of the original spell or ability.

Sure, this card will work with banefire... But Fork and now the new Radiate as well as old school Twincast make that combo work the same way. Now, if someone tried to Banefire YOU for 10, that's when this card gets nasty.
