Wild Ricochet Discussion

kengiczar - I think by the time the vote happens it's too late to copy it with Wild Ricochet or Redirect effects. But having two of those on the stack seems like big game.

SasukeUchiha on First Modern Deck I NEED ADVICE!

If you wanted to get even more into the casting/copying/recasting of your instants and sorceries, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage is a great card with her ultimate giving you the ability to cast multiple Titan's Strength on an unblockable creature for example. there are numerous creatures that are better than Crackling Triton . Options I might use would be Blighted Agent , Gelectrode (who can easily do more than Crackling Triton ), Mudbutton Torchrunner , Rage Forger (could be pretty good here). I would trade one Essence Scatter to a dedicated counter spell (like Mana Leak or Syncopate , or Dissolve , and probably another into a Negate because there are a lot of pretty nasty spells out there. A card that could be fun, but isn't amazing is Wild Ricochet , because it essentially counters an opponents spell, and casts two spells in your favour, so it can be used to move say a buff spell like Burst of Strength onto one of your creatures. I would consider making room for some form of card draw, whether it be Izzet Charm or Divination a deck can always use a little boost, and if you could copy one of those, that gets you a lot of card advantage.

@ppledgerBoth Dragon Fodder and Krenko's Command were supposed to be in the main deck but then i had to many cards and the reason i kept Reverberate and Wild Ricochet is cause they are fun to use and kind of mess with peoples heads when i use them in this deck and in reality this deck is not about being OP more about having fun playing it.Same goes for Goblin Guide and Foundry Street Denizen i have more fun playing the others and i don't like them atm cause they are cards i see alot and i don't like using always the same cards

Sadly, Brightstone Ritual isn't modern legal. Since you are running so many ways to buff your goblins and give them extra abilities, I'm a little surprised to not see either Dragon Fodder or Krenko's Command in the mainboard. Both of those should be in the main, whereas your Reverberate and Wild Ricochet don't seem to be doing much useful here. Keep in mind that Goblin Grenade is not very efficient without lots of ways to generate tokens. Both Rabblemaster and Krenko can be killed before they make goblin tokens. Also, your one-drop creature section could use some work. When playing goblins, you really need to start off with a bang. Goblin Guide and Foundry Street Denizen should probably be mainboarded.

Love it! However I think at least two Warren Instigator s should go off the sideboard and onto the main board, maybe take off Reverberate and Wild Ricochet to put on the sideboard? Also, You need 2 Brightstone Ritual s to ramp it up. Upvote!

ME4Twaffle on Balefire Abuser

Did a couple of playtests and didn't hit the Isochron Scepter as often as i'd've liked, so I DID bump that to x3, knocked off x1 Boros Reckoner and x1 Wild Ricochet , added x2 Searing Meditation for more lulz and another Grand Abolisher (Why I removed the 3rd Wild Ricochet - Fewer instances where I'd need to swat a counter, but I still have a couple for pesky instants and sorceries), AND moved x2 Augury Adept to my sideboard. Also added x2 Iroas, God of Victory to my sideboard.

That said, my playtests did yield plenty of lands in my first steps, and I have more than enough low cost minions to keep my opponent busy until things get serious. Was able to drop one of my Balefire Liege in 3 turns in one test, thanks to a Generator Servant drop on my 2nd turn. Optimum would be to have an Abolisher out first to prevent my Balefire from being countered, so I'm aiming to have him on the field in 4 turns in as many matches as possible.

Epochalyptik on Countermand VS Wild Ricochet

3 weeks ago

This is the only relevant ruling, which comes from Wild Ricochet 's Gatherer page:

7/1/2013: When Wild Ricochet resolves, it creates a copy of a spell. You control the copy. The controller of the original spell retains control of that spell. The copy is created on the stack, so its not cast. Abilities that trigger when a player casts a spell wont trigger. The copy will then resolve like a normal spell, after players get a chance to cast spells and activate abilities. The copy resolves before the original spell.

There's another appropriate ruling on Redirect , which has a similar effect in this scenario.

8/15/2010: If you cast Redirect targeting a spell that targets a spell on the stack (like Cancel does, for example), you can't change that spell's target to itself. You can, however, change that spell's target to Redirect. If you do, that spell will be countered when it tries to resolve because Redirect will have left the stack by then.

I'm really not sure how your friend even believed that his spell would still counter yours given that (1) its target had been changed, (2) it was countered by another spell, and (3) it would have fizzled if it hadn't been countered by another spell.
