For the sake of anyone looking at this later, the answer is that Pact of the Titan does not target, so Redirect can't be used to make someone else lose, and Commandeer gives you control, so you'll be the one who loses.

If you can give control to another player, such as with Sudden Substitution, that will make them lose to it.

I’m afraid Redirect won’t work on Pact of the Titan either:/ the keyword is “target”—Pact doesn’t use the word “target” so there’s nothing to redirect. There simply isn’t any viable way to make the opponent lose using the consequences of an unpaid Pact of the Titan. Even cards like Donate or Harmless Offering won’t work.

As an extension, would cards like Redirect work?

Your spell will fizzle in your example.

The targets of a spell/ability are choice only once, when it is cast/activated. Its targets can be changed through effects like Redirect, but in general, the targets are only determined once. If, upon resolution, all the targets of a spell/ability are gone, that spell/ability will "fizzle" and do nothing.

Hope this helps!!

Ertai, the Corrupted

I've decided I want to try building this guy next, but I'm going to need some help doing so. Right now, I'd like the main strategy to be reanimator and theft; I'm thinking I can best do this by wheeling opponents and reviving their creatures to my side or by using enchantments like Mind Control to steal them. Being able to take advantage of their spells with things like Insidious Will or Redirect would be in theme with this also.

Given the nature of Ertai's ability, though, I think an Esper Aristocrats strategy would also be good to use, especially with Solemnity in play with Undying or Persist creatures on board. Solemnity is the only card I know of in Esper that can prevent counters, but that's why having reanimation or recycling spells will be particularly useful.

Finally, I'm thinking about using tokens. Stuff like Weaponcraft Enthusiast or Grave Titan would build my board up and provide fodder for Ertai's ability, which will be used to hinder opponents' strategies and protect my own.

I think all of these strategies can mesh very well together, but my main concern is that I'll be spreading myself too thin if I try to incorporate every single one of these elements to their fullest. That's why I'm looking for help and advice on how to best take this deck.

Tylord2894 on Storm mechanic vs Redirected Ability

No, you can not Redirect a Storm trigger.

The trigger on Storm does not target. The Storm trigger reads "When you cast this spell, copy it for each other spell that was cast before it this turn. If the spell has any targets, you may choose new targets for any of the copies." This is why countering the original spell doesn't fizzle the trigger.

Hope this helps!!

LordKunai: I should have clarified better about Oracle, what I meant was if Oracle was interacted with by your opponent and is not available to you anymore as a win condition. Regarding Time Warp vs Temporal Manipulation, there really isn't any major difference in my choice. The only reason I've chosen manipulation is simply because it cannot be Redirected.

He's not quite a tutor. Goblin Matron was trying to teach him how to tutor but to change his answer so the teacher wouldn't know. Therefore he became a lacky.

As for Deflecting Swat I wouldn't say auto include exactly. But yes almost every red deck needs a Redirect
