Fork

Instant

Copy target instant or sorcery spell, except that the copy is red. You may choose new targets for the copy.

Fork Discussion

A minor note - something I remembered later.

The original Fork text is "Any sorcery or instant spell just cast is doubled. Treat Fork as an exact copy of target spell except that Fork remains red. Copy and original may have different targets." which may have been interpreted as if copying Reality Strobe would get Fork exiled perhaps, but newer printings (possibly only visible on MTGO?) have the clearer text "Copy target instant or sorcery spell, except that the copy is red. You may choose new targets for the copy." Card databases such as Gatherer or Scryfall will show the official Oracle text, and rulings such as those I posted earlier, which are a particularly important thing to check when evaluating the functionality of older cards.

Fork essentially creates an imaginary copy of the targeted spell on the stack. It does not become the spell the way that Clone becomes a creature, though this is how many people first try to explain it.

As the copy of the spell isn't a real card, it ceases to exist when it changes zones, like a token does.

These rulings exist which are relevant:
The Fork card goes to the graveyard when it resolves and leaves the copy on the stack. There is no card representing the copy on the stack. (2004-10-04)
If you copy a spell for which Buyback has been paid, you get nothing back since the copied spell does not have a card to give you. (2004-10-04)

Hello! I have a question about the following section here:

"When posting a thread, check the recent threads to see if the topic is already covered. If it is, post in the existing thread instead."

As of right now there is already a Modern Horizons thread, however; I'd like to make a specific speculation thread on this upcoming product asking players to post what cards they do not think will be reprinted in this product as well as what new cards might be included that mimic cards on the restricted list, for example; Fork & Reverberate . (I wish to ask the second part as players would never speculate whether a reserved list card would make it in the set unless this caveat is specifically mentioned in the post.)

I could post my question on the thread, but I feel people will largely overlook it, likely posting their speculation on what cards they'd want to include in their decks rather than creating a discussion on why particular cards shouldn't be in the set for their potential to warp the format or change the current meta in an unhealthy manner. That's to say I feel posting this topic as it's own thread would result in a different conversation than the one currently on the established post without detracting anything from it.

Does the specificality of my thread idea warrant the approval of a new thread to address this topic not currently being discussed, or would it not be allowed due to sharing a similar commonality to a previous thread regardless of how the matter is being addressed? Thanks!

What this deck really needs is a center of gravity.

As is mentioned above, you're running Nullhide Ferox and Nikya, but you've got a ton of instants and sorceries. If you wanted to build a creature-centric build, then you should focus on that, including cards like Guardian Project , Regal Force , Soul of the Harvest , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , and Beast Whisperer .

If you want to go the GR token route, focus on your Instants and Sorceries. Flesh out those producers, and include cards like Pyromancer's Goggles , Primal Amulet  Flip, Reverberate , Increasing Vengeance , Fork , Doublecast , Dual Casting , and Howl of the Horde .

There are a lot of Goblins and a lot of Elves. If you want to go tribal, there are a ton of both Elf and Goblin lords to draw on, as well as tribal boons like Vanquisher's Banner , Shared Animosity , Tribal Unity , Kindred Summons , etc.

Finally, you're running Wilderness Reclamation , Electrodominance and Rhada as your Commander. If you want to build with huge Instants, throw in Wort, the Raidmother and Rosheen Meanderer and fill the deck with cards like Chord of Calling , Commune with Lava , Comet Storm , Fall of the Titans , Squall Line , and Strength of the Tajuru .

Hmm if you add in Bonus Round with a lot of rituals like Pyretic Ritual , Rite of Flame , Mana Geyser , Desperate Ritual , and copy it with Reverberate , Twincast , Fork and such you can make all your wizards grow super big and smash everyone in the face extremely hard :P

@MCJennings I'm glad that I could arouse your interest in this formidable weapon :) I have just teted it yesterday at my local FNM and it did great work. I managed to copy an opponents Boundless Realms by using Sunforger to cast Fork ... This was probably one of the greatest plays I've ever done :D

I like your way of thinking about the "huggy ramp" There's one card that came to my mind immediatly: Oath of Lieges seems to fit in this category perfectly... gods be merciful... Now I need to overthink the decklist again...

Transcendence truly is a great and absolutely insane card! I had it in the deck for a long time but I am switching my wincons, trying new things from time to time. I'm sure it will make its way back into the deck at some point though, as it is one of my personal favourites... I remember one particular situation: One of my opponents was casting an Exsanguinate for 35, killing all players but me and himself. I had a Render Silent at hand... but also had an Enlightened Tutor ... I decided to use the tutor, fetching me the enchantment in question. The Exsanguinate-guy at first didn't get what I was up to, telling me that this wouldn't help me to survive his next turn. This was until I gifted him the enchantment gracefully... :D

I know what your talking about... it's the evil goat speaking out of you there... I do love my Perplexing Chimera ... so much chaos... just perfect. I just recently stumbled upon the Divine Intervention ... I. Need. This. Card. It's just everything my deck want's to do: Spreading a lot of chaos doing some unintelligible nonsense, prolonging the game for about 15-20 turns just to cast a card like this...

Hey Man I love the deck. I'd advise trying out Reiterate , Fork and the mono red counterspells Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast . They worked pretty well in all of the red spellslinger decks I've tried them in. The copy spells especially so a well placed fork can copy a game winning torment of hailfire or an annoying counterspell. Also if your opponents have 7 or more tapped lands then Reiterate and Mana Geyser make infinite mana.

@BMHKain Definitely don't play the Sphinx, way too much cmc for not enough payout.

Well the next things you'll want to ditch are; The bad spell copy stuff Twincast , Fork , Increasing Vengeance , Doublecast , Reverberate .. Bonus round, 1kystorm and Melek are plenty..

You'll want to run 8-10 counter's like: Dispel , Spell Pierce , Negate , Counterspell , Force of Will , Mental Misstep , Mana Drain , Pyroblast , Pact of Negation , Swan Song
