I cast Dark Impostor with Cavern of Souls (Vampires named) and 2 Swamps. My opponent has a Runechanter's Pike on the battlefield. To increase the power boost given by the Pike, my opponent casts Rewind , targeting Dark Imposter. He says Rewind resolves, but doesn't counter Dark Imposter, and he gets to untap four lands. Is this correct?
Yes, that's a legal play on your opponent's part. Much like you can cast Murder on an Indestructable creature, you can cast a counter spell on a creature that can't be countered (baring any other complications).
Counter only cares about the spell/ability being on the stack, it doesn't care that it won't achieve it's primary goal (I.E. remove the spell from the stack).
