Ah yes.. I redirect your fling to your own face, gg rdw. Yes I will be playing this card, and yes I will smirk and laugh evilly everytime it wrecks my opponent. Sneaky cunning tactics ftw.

In most cases, strictly better than Swerve.

I don't know about enchantments, since the enchant ability has targeting built in. Equipping a piece of Equipment, however, is an activated ability, not a spell, and thus can't be redirected by this card.

EDIT: "Enchant X" means "Target a X as you cast this. This card enters the battlefield attached to that X." Therefore, since enchant is just shorthand for that targeting action, I believe you could redirect an Aura. Non-Aura enchantments, however, could not be redirected.

@elderknight and @LiXinjian:
Selective Memory does not use the word "target," therefore it has no targets and thus can't be redirected.

awesome card with the right timing... very funny art!

@elderknight/LiXinjian Selective Memory doesn't say target anywhere, so no, you can't redirect it. If you could, as you still control the spell, you would be able to chose the cards that get removed. The only way of using that is forcing your opponent to cast it, and controling your opponent so he has to remove all relevant cards from his deck, what while possible, it's too expensive and complicated to do any good.

@Zachrin Twincasting a Banefire would win you the game if the copy was big enough to reduce your opponent's life points to 0, since it would resolve first. In fact, Banefire can't possibly draw a game, one side will win. Now, redirecting a Comet Storm can result in a draw, if you choose both yourself and your opponent as targets, and if the damage dealt is enough to reduce both life totals to 0 or less.

Funniest moment with this card: a three player game with a mono blue (me), a blue/red, and a black/red. The black/red used Blightning on me, which I then Redirected at the other blue/red player, who then Swerveed it back at the black/red player... so I Twincasted it... and was promptly Mindbreak Trapped.

In Legacy and such formats it's endless chaos and fun, while it's downright evil in Standard.

5/5; who even needs Counterspell back? Blue is stronger than ever!

Like a stupid Ryu player throwing a fireball at a skilled Rose player. Maybe with a few of this card in my deck, I can finally put a stop to the cheap tricks of the black players. Won't it be fun to see their 'instantly kill your creature' spells getting reflected right back at them?

Interesting thing about this is, that it can get a Troll Ascetic killed.

But meedle is common

@luxma -
1. Actually Meddle is uncommon;
2. It's far more limited, as it only affects spells with a single creature target, and can only redirect to another creature. This can change the targets for a Fireball or Comet Storm with a bunch of targets, and it can make a spell hit another player.

I love the art and flavor of this card. The "OH SH*T" look on the guy's face is amazing, and the flavor text is delightfully condescending.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
