Creature â Human Wizard
: Draw a card, then discard a card.
: Copy target instant or sorcery spell you control. You may choose new targets for the copy.
Scott M. Fischer
You canâ€™t choose to pay any additional costs for the copy. However, effects based on any additional or alternative costs that were paid for the original spell are copied as though those same costs were paid for the copy too. For example, if you copy a spell that you cast by paying its overload cost, the copy will resolve as though its overload cost had been paid as well.
When the second ability resolves, it creates a copy of a spell. That copy is created on the stack, so itâ€™s not â€œcast.â€ Abilities that trigger when a player casts a spell wonâ€™t trigger. The copy will then resolve like a normal spell, after players get a chance to cast spells and activate abilities.
The copy will have the same targets as the spell itâ€™s copying unless you choose new ones. You may change any number of the targets, including all of them or none of them. If, for one of the targets, you canâ€™t choose a new legal target, then it remains unchanged (even if the current target is illegal).
Nivix Guildmageâ€™s second ability can target (and copy) any instant or sorcery spell you control, not just one with targets.
If the copied spell is modal (that is, it says â€œChoose one â€”â€ or the like), the copy will have the same mode. You canâ€™t choose a different one.
If the copied spell has an X whose value was determined as it was cast (like Sphinxâ€™s Revelation does), the copy has the same value of X.
