Spellskite spellskiting itself?
Asked by SorcerersBone 5 years agoOk, so if for instance my Spellskite intercepted a Lightning Bolt from an opponent, and in response that opponent cast another bolt on the spellskite anyway, could I activate the ability again targeting the first activation of spellskites ability so it would only take 3 from the second bolt and have it not take lethal damage? If so, does the first bolt continue to deal damage to its original target or does it get countered?
No. Spellskite 's ability can target another instance of Spellskite 's ability, but it won't do anything because Spellskite 's ability can't target Spellskite itself (which is what the redirect would make it do). The ability can only legally target a spell or another ability.
