Rules Question: Legal Target August 3, 2008Posted by Norm in Casual.

OK this seems like a trivial question but I couldn’t find anything specific after a quick rules search. Here is the scenario: my brother and I were playing with some block decks. I played Unmake, targeting one of his two creatures. He responds with Wild Ricochet and I have no creatures on the board. So here is where the rules question comes in. When choosing a new target for Unmake he wants to choose a creature in my graveyard. I don’t think this is a legal target since the card isn’t In Play, but I’m unsure because the card rules says remover target creature from the game.
So I guess I’m just not sure if a card has to be in play to be considered a legal target for a spell on the stack that doesn’t specify a zone. Thanks in advance for the help.
