:1: :wu: :wu:
If :w: was spent to play Faithful Dispersal, target player gains 5 life. If :u: was spent to play Faithful Dispersal, return up to one target nonland permanent to its owner's hand.

the problem of course is that it needs an up to one target restriction unless you want it to be limited to when your stuff gets targetted.

Are you referring to the blue effect? If so, corrections have been made.

It still requires targets to be played even if no :u: is spent.

Well, I based the wording off River's Grasp and used the Oracle rulings of that card as references. As such, you first get to choose the targets, then the card checks if the appropriate mana was paid before resolution. Check it out: http://ww2.wizards.com/gatherer/CardDetails.aspx?&id=158755

Yes I realize that, however, the spell itself still requires targets for each modal, that's why it specifically says " return up to one target creature to its owner's hand." so that you can play it without targetting a creature, since it's a given that there will be a player to target 99% of the time.
You choose targets before you pay for the spell, so how can the spell know what mana is going to be spent? Thus all targets must be chosen in advance.
The spell has two targets. If a particular type of mana was paid, it does something to target A. If the other was paid, it does something to target B.
It still requires both targets A and B to be present when playing it though.

Maybe I should just make this simple enough for clarity. How's it now?

But now Boomerang nets you 6 life. That's not cool. (Granted, it cost :1::w::u:, but still.)

Okay, what about now?
