Wow. I never thought of using this with animated lands. I feel stupid, but am also starting to feel a little devious.

This card is even more fun if you animate your opponent's basic lands :D

Even though it's wrong to, I'm going to go ahead and comapre this to the new Sever The Bloodline.

Both cost 4CMC, and both exile a creature, although Sever the Bloodline is less colour intensive and is not restricted to nonblack creatures.

Eradicate has a taped-on Surgical Extraction effect, while Sever The Bloodline employs a watered-down Maelstrom Pulse quality. Eradicate thus can rip strategies apart, while Sever The bloodline can wreck someone's board position, so they employ two dIfferent ways of awesome.

Eradicate is an UNCOMMON (Blimey!), but Sever the Bloodline does have Flashback; it can exile at least two creatures that threaten your board with its use...

AAAGGHHH bugger, they both win! It really depends if you wish to establish board dominance or just want to rip a combo to bits, but let's use them BOTH!!!

Probably one of the coolest black removal spells out there. Works awesome against indestructibility, combo decks that hinge on a creature, and any beat-down win condition. I love it.

I'm building a black/red destruction deck using this and Crusher Zendikon as my cards of focus. I can remove all of their lands from the game on fourth turn, then it's just a matter of picking their remaining lands and creatures off and whittling them down to nothing. Or them conceding.

I give this a 4.5 for use and a 5.0 for awesomeness.

I prefer Wind Zendikon with this, since you can pull it off second turn with a ritual, and those are the mill colors of choice.

Tinker -> Blightsteel

Dark Ritual -> Eradicate

Plain and simple...

"So I hear you like wincons?" ^^

That's the strength of this card. Most decks include a 3 or 4-of of a fantastic creature as a wincon. Eradicate, and you're not only removing a big threat from the field, but you're also sucking wincons right out of their deck. If this thing were around when GR Valakut ramp was stomping all over standard (thanks mainly to Primeval Titan), I would have been very surprised if it didn't at least see sideboard spots.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
