Legendary Creature - Human Wizard


Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery that targets Ral, Bolas' Errand-Boy, you may exile Ral and return him to the battlefield before that spell resolves. Copy that spell. You may choose new targets for the copy.

When Ral, Bolas' Errand-Boy becomes exiled for the second time in a single turn, return it to the battlefield transformed.
