Neotrup has the most accurate answer. The answer to the question "Can I activate Spellskite?" is pretty much always "Yes". The answer to the follow-up question "Is that actually helpful?" depends on the situation.

Harnellas is correct about Spellskite's ability not doing anything, however it can still be activated. To activate the ability you need only be able to target a spell or ability, not necessarily one that actually has a target. With something that doesn't target like Chord of Calling you simply won't change the target, but you can still spend 2 life if you wanted to lose life for whatever reason.

I understand that Spellskite can redirect the target of a spell to itself such as a Lightning Bolt. Bolt deals damage which is then transferred to SSkite rather than its original target. But what happens if SSkite trys to redirect a spell that effects a players deck like Chord of Calling. Does the effect just not happen?

Play 4 Treefolk Harbinger, 2 more Doran, the Siege Tower and 1 more Spellskite. This means you can cut down the number of Idyllic Tutor and Assault Formation as well. You need to start playing more lands that can produce black mana too. Forbidding Watchtower is a good man-land for this deck. Drop the creatures with Defender or keep them to a minimum.

I think I'll drop 2 Spellskite and 2 Nighthawk for the other 2 Gary and 2 Liliana. Lili seems good in this deck.
I'm currently playing 8 pieces of removal, 12 if you count the Gatekeeper. Is that traditionally not enough?
This is just something I threw together to see what it would look like and how it would play. For a tuned list I'd probably start with your profile decks and branch out from there.

I'd swap 2 Vampire Nighthawk or 2 Gifted Aetherborn for 2 more Gray Merchant of Asphodel. You really want to hit Gary every single game and often more than once. I've played MBD quite a bit and in my experience the games often play out as simply survive long enough to cast Gary.
Perhaps swap some discard around or push Spellskite to the SB for more MB removal. Bile Blight and Go for the Throat are pretty good in the current meta. Funeral Charm is also a nice touch, bolt a bird or instant speed discard.

It has been stalling the board immensely :)
I don't always get to tutor off of it but it stops my opponents from playing creatures until they can remove it, which gives me time to set up or win outright.
It's an amazing tempo piece

Hinterland Harbor and Woodland Cemetery are alright cuts for Nexus because they don't always come in untapped, which is pretty necessary. If possible, get 4 Nexus, because it avoids removal and has evasion. My current list doesn't have black, so I can't run Fatal Push, and Twisted Image is only good against Spellskite, so it isn't very versatile. I have 1 Dismember in the main board and 2 in the side, and that usually works out. I also have 2 Nature's Claim in the side which could work as well. Since you have black though, Push is really good against more than just Skite, it works against Death's Shadow, Merfolk, etc.
