Choose one —

• Counter target spell if it's red.

• Destroy target permanent if it's red.

Fire can be savage, but it is fickle. Water is always true, its flow steady and world-shaping.

Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 10/4/2004: The decision to counter a spell or destroy a permanent is a decision made on announcement before the target is selected. If the spell is redirected, this mode can't be changed, so only targets of the selected type are valid.
  • 6/8/2016: Hydroblast can target any spell or permanent, not just a red one. It checks the color of the target only on resolution.
