If my opp plays a Target opponent card, such as Cruel ultimatum, can i redirect it With Swerve Or Ricochet Trap?
Thanks

Short Answer: No
Since your opponent remains the controller of the spell and he can't be his own opponent.

This would work in a Multiplayergame though, since there are more opponentes, of your opponent.

The answer is no. Swerve (and other cards like it) can't be used to redirect a spell that targets opponents because the person casting the spell is not "the opponent" for the spell cast. You are their opponent. They are not their own opponent and that is the reason why you can't target them. Hope that helps.

You can swerve it. You just need to be playing a multiplayer game.
