Overload and Cost Reduction

If I have a Nightscape Familiar on the battlefield and want to overload Cyclonic Rift, is the mana cost of the overload reduced by 1, or not, due to overload being an ability?

Overload isĀ  a static ability that allows you to cast the spell for an alternative cost and then applies a text-changing effect to it. If you cast a spell with overload, you're still casting a spell, and any cost reductions will apply.

Great, thanks for the reply
