Nivmagus Elemental is on the field.I play a spell with an Overload ability.I sack the spell to Nivmagus Elemental do I still get the Overload effect since the original spell has been exiled?(I would have already payed the Overload cost.)
_Magic: The Gathering_ Comprehensive RulesThese rules are effective as of October 1, 2012.702.94. Overload702.94a Overload is a keyword that represents two static abilities: one that functions from any zone in which the spell with overload can be cast and another that functions while the card is on the stack. Overload [cost] means "You may choose to pay [cost] rather than pay this spell's mana cost" and "If you chose to pay this spell's overload cost, change its text by replacing all instances of the word 'target' with the word 'each.'" Using the overload ability follows the rules for paying alternative costs in rules 601.2b and 601.2e-g.702.94b If a player chooses to pay the overload cost of a spell, that spell won't require any targets. It may affect objects that couldn't be chosen as legal targets if the spell were cast without its overload cost being paid.702.94c Overload's second ability creates a text-changing effect. See rule 612, "Text-Changing Effects."

Dual means two. A duel is a battle between two people. Lands that make two colors of mana are dual lands. A normal Magic battle is a duel.
