Spellskite is the Sultan of Swerve.

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.
