Rebound on cards that exile themselves

Asked by BlueScope 4 years ago

I control Cast Through Time, and cast Spelltwine. I choose both spells, which I know won't get rebound. However, do I get to cast Spelltwine again in the next upkeep, even though it exiled itself as part of it's effect?

On a different note, if I cast something like Reverberate to copy an instant or sorcery while I control Cast Through Time, can I stack the spells in the same order in the following upkeep to copy the spell again?

For spelltwine, you exile the spell as part of its resolution so rebound can't apply (rebound replaces the spell going to the graveyard as it resolves).

Rebound says "If this spell was cast from your hand, instead of putting it into your graveyard as it resolves, exile it" - which doesn't sound like a requirement, unlike "If this spell was cast from your hand, if it would be put into your graveyard as it resolves, exile it instead".

Now of course, I might be wrong and those mean the same thing... I don't see a problem in exiling a spell from exile, seen much weirder things happening in MTG :)

Rebound works as a replacement effect. If the spell wouldn't go to your graveyard as it resolves then there is nothing for it to replace.

Ah, I see... Thanks for clearing that up!
