Official Rulings for Chemister's Trick
10/1/2012 : The controller of a creature that attacks if able still chooses which player or planeswalker it attacks.
10/1/2012 : If, during a player's declare attacker's step, a creature is tapped, is affected by a spell or ability that says it can't attack, or hasn't been under that player's control continuously since the turn began (and doesn't have haste), then it doesn't attack. If there's a cost associated with having a creature attack, the player isn't forced to pay that cost, so it doesn't have to attack in that case either.
4/15/2013 : If you don't pay the overload cost of a spell, that spell will have a single target. If you pay the overload cost, the spell won't have any targets.
4/15/2013 : Because a spell with overload doesn't target when its overload cost is paid, it may affect permanents with hexproof or with protection from the appropriate color.
4/15/2013 : Note that if the spell with overload is dealing damage, protection from that spell's color will still prevent that damage.
4/15/2013 : Overload doesn't change when you can cast the spell.
4/15/2013 : Casting a spell with overload doesn't change that spell's mana cost. You just pay the overload cost instead.
4/15/2013 : Effects that cause you to pay more or less for a spell will cause you to pay that much more or less while casting it for its overload cost, too.
4/15/2013 : If you are instructed to cast a spell with overload “without paying its mana cost,” you can't choose to pay its overload cost instead.
