9/20/2014 If the controller of the target spell pays , the spell won’t be countered. Mindswipe will still deal damage to that player. 9/20/2014 If the target spell is an illegal target as Mindswipe tries to resolve (perhaps because it was countered by another spell or ability), Mindswipe will be countered and none of its effects will happen. No damage will be dealt.
