For example; if my opponant controls a 1/1 soldier and attempts to equip Sword of Feast and Famine to the creature; am I able to respond to the equip ability with Spellskite's ability and target Spellskite to avoid his creature being equiped? I only ask this because the rule I list below is a little confusing.
There are only 3 outcomes:
1. His creature gets equiped.
2. His creatured does not get equiped and the Sword remains on his side un-equipped.
3. The Sword gets equiped to my Spellskite.
I believe if I read the rules correctly, the 2nd option is what will resolve from my response and neither of our creatures will be equipped and the Sword remains on his side un-equipped.
Here is the rule below I am referring to that leads me to beleive this is the correct outcome. Please answer.
701.3b If an effect tries to attach an Aura, Equipment, or Fortification to an object it can't be
attached to, the Aura, Equipment, or Fortification doesn‘t move. If an effect tries to attach an
Aura, Equipment, or Fortification to the object it‘s already attached to, the effect does nothing.
