Choose one —

• Counter target spell if it's blue.

• Destroy target permanent if it's blue.

Water can be crushing, but it is predictable. Fire is always dynamic, its rage absolute and all-consuming.

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: Pyroblast can target any spell or permanent, not just a blue one. It checks the color of the target only on resolution.
