LOL @ Mode. Yet another of Wizards' many "OH ****" moments.

My favorite Swerve moment: retargeting an opponent's Enslave. He "gained control" of his own creature, and slowly bled out.

My favourit card from the set, if not the block. Having an opponent tap out for Time stretch then getting three turns is the most fun ever. Great as a suprise, also the Fear of it can cause people to have to play around two untapped lands.

The perfect card to deal with people who both run removal and cards with hexproof. Can't target that Geist of Saint Traft? No worries, you can do it for me!

ResaOkand: I don't believe it would affect your opponent, given that the original spell is for "target opponent" making the person who cast it an illegal target. However, that wouldn't stop it from causing Cruel Ultimatum to be targetting an illegal target, thus fizzling. Having said that, a Negate or Cancel could do the trick just as well saving Swerve for something more versatile, like those Blightnings which are everywhere right now. You spend 1 card so that they lose 3 (Blightning + 2 discards)? Too awesome.

On another note, I was considering making a WUb control deck to try and combat the Jund juggernaut, but this card makes me sad. Do I splash red and dilute my mana base for something with such awesome card advantage, or do I stick with the original WUb plan and just keep the counters that break even? Decisions decisions.

I played this at a draft when shards first came out and swerved a blighting back at some old guy. He almost cried.

So Lets say you play a card and someone counters it. You play swerve, making the counterspell target the only other thing targetable, swerve. What happens? If swerve gets countered then the counterspell would go back to it's original target, but the counterspell was already used on swerve, and you cannot have the same affect happen twice without a card specifying it can. Can anyone explain? I'll give you a cookie.
