Anyone ever watch Yu-Gi-Oh! at anytime in their lives? If not, this card is from that damn show, I swear. I have lost duels when I had Geth, Lilliana vess (at 9 loyalty), Phyrexian Obliterator and Grimgrin (at 9/9) on the field because of this card. I have 8 life, opponant has 9 mana. I instantly lose. I think this card is WAAAAY to OP of a card to be an uncommon, it should be rare, due to the nature that it can kill anything in 1 hit when you have the mama to do so. you can kill an opponant instantly, even when the WOULD win the next turn. To finish what I was saying about Yu-Gi-Oh!, it's a damn convienece card that always eats your opponants life to nothing. they are fixing this card for Core 2013 by making you pay X twice, thank God, I hate this card...

I fail to see the use of Fireball... Sorry, I just don't think it's that good. 2/5

This is never worth it. Killing 4 1/1s?, I'd rather summon a Titan. I'd rather play 4 darts, a pair of forked bolts, or even a global spell like pyroclasm. How about 2 2/2s? Or one 1/2 and one 2/2? Consider how much mana you'd need to sweep 2 1/1s and a 1/3. When is splitting this horrible card ever worth it? Every color out there has a better way to deal with a small clump of weenies for a fraction of the mana, including red! Even if you're targetting just one monster or player, there are better cards. This thing is abysmal compared to just about every other sweeper out there! Even early game: turn two and your opponent has two 1/1s with haste. If you wait two turns, and draw a little over the curve, you just might be able to kill them with 4 mana, while your opponent potentially gets out a 2/2 and a 3/3 for your trouble. Someone explain to me how this card isn't terrible. Early game; useless, mid game; expensive, late game? Are you people running 50% mana decks? 2... (see all)

I cannot STAND the stupid comments made by people on this wbsite! First things first, if you want to deal 3 damage to 2 creatures each, you have to spend R, and then 1 extra because you are targeting 1 creature beyond the first, and then you have to spend 6 MORE mana so they each get dealt 3 damage.

And to anyone who says that they don't see the point to the card, then you have not been playing for long enough, or are no good at the game.

Thirdly, it's NOT hard to use on Magic Online... if you cannot do basic addition, then you should NOT be playing this game.

This card reads like a math problem. And just to be a prick the teacher adds "... fireball costs 1 more to cast for each target beyond the first. Solve for X".

I have a quick question. Can I cast this for R and target all of my opponents illusions--the ones that get sacrificed when targeted--to kill them all?

Goodness Gracious....

Love that this was reprinted in the same set as Fork's new ieteration Reverberate. The two were meant for eachother. Have never found this hugely useful (always prefered the one extra mana for the instant speed of Volcanic Geyser but this card is classic nonetheless.

pulled this for a RW draft deck, and it was great.
the first place guy ran a mostly blue illusion deck, with i think 3 or 4 phantasmal bears.

he had 3 creatures out, 2 of which were bears. i played this, tapped 1 for each bear, 3 for the other creature, and burned him for the rest

great card
4/5
