Wild Ricochet Discussion

Boza on Unsure who "Opponent" refers to ...

You are correct on accounts.

Swerve does not change control of the spell, so the opponents are the same.

Commandeer or Perplexing Chimera or the second part of Wild Ricochet changes control of the spell and thus, the possible targets.

Yesterday on Unsure who "Opponent" refers to ...

I think I understand this, just wanted to double-check. A few questions in one here.

Scenario: I'm playing a three-player game. Opponent 1 casts Acquire, targeting me. I cast Swerve in response, targeting my opponent's Acquire spell.

I elect to chose new targets, so which targets would be legitimate choices for my redirection of Acquire at this point? Would it by Myself or Opponent 2 (both being legitimate targets of Opponent 1's initial casting of Acquire); or Opponent 1 or Opponent 2 (both being legitimate targets as though I myself were casting Acquire).

I'd imagine the former, because the "you" or "opponent" in the text of the card is always from the POV of the controller of the spell, and I haven't actually gained ownership of the spell? Also because I haven't gained ownership of the spell, all I'm really doing is deciding whose library Opponent 1 will search through for an Artefact, not actually deny them of anything.

And if I had elected to cast Commandeer on Acquire (instead of of casting Swerve of Acquire), then I could chose either of my opponents' libraries for searching through in order to acquire an artefact for myself?

And Wild Ricochet would be a slightly confusing, but fun blend of both worlds.

Grasp of Fate is another clutch card that i would recommend. Really shines due to its versatility and multi-target capabilities

I would also recommend trying to maybe increase your instants in general for your Sunforger package Return to Dust Swords to Plowshares and my favorite Wild Ricochet there's a ton of instants to have an answer for mostly any situation. having 2 mana has never made you feel this safe. Boros Charm Condemn Aura Shards Comeuppance you can get real creative and gain insane value off these cards. All while Sunforger is beating in face...

Winding Canyons, Gratuitous Violence dropped in price, Oversold Cemetery/Palace Siege (I know you have Phyrexian Reclamation), Underworld Connections/Outpost Siege/Spiteful Visions for a bit more card draw perhaps.

You're sitting pretty on mana ramp and mana rocks but if you're trying to occasionally cast things on other turns, albeit at cheaper Madness costs, you may need even more. Not much though. Test-driving the deck may be required of course.

Dash Hopes and Wild Ricochet are fun for cruel control decks. Havoc Festival and its ilk perhaps?

If enemies are discarding a lot then perhaps a Grimoire of the Dead would be a worthy investment. Or that new red and black basic-landcycling card that can resurrect anyone's creature.

I feel like you may want to put in more turn 2 ramp. Whether that be Rampant Growth, Nature's Lore, Gruul Signet, Rakdos Signet, Simic Signet, Izzet Signet, Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Impulse, Talisman of Indulgence or Mind Stone. Maybe cut Wild Ricochet, Yavimaya Elder, or 1/2 more basics. Now I'm not saying to put in all of the turn 2 ramp effects I suggested, but your deck should be more consistent with some in there. I would also suggest cutting a Swamp for Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. Lastly, Prismatic Omen is another Chromatic Lantern like effect.

I'm still waiting for Scriptus Fleen, Flectomancer from Wild Ricochet, I know he isn't technically a character, and I don't normally like kithkin, but he'd be soo cool!
