|Fork on crack.
Maybe they should just have called this card SUPER
Undoubtedly that would have been a bad name.
It's very expensive but I
think that someone is going to find a very useful
way to make this card
very, very good. I'm going to stay tentative
with this rating, but its a 4
in both formats.
I'm not sure if I'm gonna end up regretting
this... but I think this card stinks. It's
expensive. It's klunky. In constructed
I really can't think of anything terribly abusive
that can be done with this card... mainly because
who knows if you're opponent will play spells
worth Radiating? Radiate on a Vindicate
would be good for a laugh... but again, pretty
klunky if you asked me.
I s'pose Radiate could be used in Limited as a way
to turn your opponents removal into a
"wrath" effect... still klunky but a
Again, it's really too early to say for sure but I
think this will end up being one of those
"crap" rares that will sit in binders
and never see play.
Radiate is quite an interesting
card. It's a Fork on Steroids. In my
opinion, this card serves a much better defensive
purpose than an offensive one. Adding five
mana to any spell is just not all that practical
in constructed, especially when the results can be
quite unpredictable. Radiating a Vindicate
sure is a really fancy Obliterate, though, isn't
it? While fancy and cool, it's not real
practical. Even in limited, you never know
what you're going to get to Radiate, and even past
that, it's pretty expensive. I think you
would play it in limited for the "who
knows" factor, but I don't see it as amazing
Finally a card
that I don't have to get the power/toughness on.
Radiate this, radiate that - we all radiate! This
card, Fork's demented older brother, is no Fork.
It's way too messed up to be useful in random
decks, and it's limited value is none, since you
can't ever guarantee you'll LIKE the results of
it's actions. It's likely to show up in some combo
deck that I don't understand yet, but it's
not going to make much of an impact on standard.

In Limited, Radiate has the possibility of acting
Wrath of God if used correctly. Obviously,
going to happen too often due to its high cost.
Constructed, it doesn't really seem to get any
unless you're playing in multi-player, and even
that's quite a stretch. This is another card
see getting sold for too much. I hope
prove me wrong, though.
This is a revision of
the old school red spell fork which was really
great spell in the day, unfortunately this one's
drawbacks make it sub-optimal. It is much too
expensive at 3RR, and it kills your permanents. If
they really wanted to make it could they could
have said target player and permanents he
controls. I am sure there are some wacky combos
that this would be fun with but how many good red
combo decks have you ever seen ? If you want a red
deck use Goblins instead. Rating 2 Limited 2
Oh man oh man oh man! This is gonna be
REALLY good....or REALLY bad.
There is so much potential to be gained and lossed
here. I don't have a lot to say on this one,
just be careful and be patient if this thing is
