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.

Notes and Rules Information for Pyroblast:
  • Pyroblast can target any spell or permanent, not just a blue one. It checks the color of the target only on resolution. (2016-06-08)
  • 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. (2004-10-04)
