Why counter spells? Redirect them!

For the record, outside of multiplayer, cruel ultimatum is unaffected here, since it targets an opponent, and since you don't actually control the spell, still, in single player, you're still the only legal target.

Nonetheless, a very nice card, and pretty effective.

I actually like this better than Twincast, Twincast is better offensively but it's not a good defensive spell. This card lets you avoid the effect of a harmful spell, something Twincast can't do.
And, of course, better than Swerve in almost every way...

Yay, a fully blue spell like it should be.
5/5 for blueishness.

*Also, as said already it changes all targets.

I would love to Reverberate it.

You: Big Banefire with 2 up.

Blue: (Smuggly) Redirect.

You: Reverberate, targeting Redirect, retargeting Banefire at you.

Of course, then they would simply counter it flat out (The Reverberate). Still. It would be fun. And also, the existence of Reverberate sort of makes all the people complaining about Red not having an answer for this sound silly. It costs the same, is in the same rarity, and the same set- pretty sure it was done intentionally.

This card is very solid. Won me a couple of games today at the prerelease. Doom Blade my Frost Titan? Nope, you target your Cloudstrike Crusader instead. In a format with light removal, it helps deal with threats while protecting your own, and can produce massive card advantage. Or it can be a dead draw against a creature deck with non-targeted spells

That Comet Storm you kicked 6 times is really nice...

: I Fling you for 27, your dead either way.
: Wanna bet? *Redirect*

first time was really funny, second time they refused to continue playing. I love this card!

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
