It is interesting in Isolator how various mscorlib types differ in whether or not they throw when faked:

Isolate.Fake.Instance<System.IO.Stream>(); // Does not throw
Isolate.Fake.Instance<System.IO.TextReader>(); // Does not throw
Isolate.Fake.Instance<System.IO.TextWriter>(); // Does not throw
Isolate.Fake.Instance<System.IO.StreamReader>(); // Does not throw
Isolate.Fake.Instance<System.IO.StreamWriter>(); // Does not throw
Isolate.Fake.Instance<System.Text.RegularExpressions.Match>(); // Does not throw
Isolate.Fake.Instance<System.Threading.Thread>(); // Throws
Isolate.Fake.Instance<System.Text.StringBuilder>(); // Throws
Isolate.Fake.Instance<System.IO.FileInfo>(); // Throws
Isolate.Fake.Instance<System.IO.BinaryReader>(); // Throws
Isolate.Fake.Instance<System.IO.BinaryWriter>(); // Throws
According to , Isolator supports faking these mscorlib types: DateTime, Environment, File, Directory, FileStream, and X509Certificate.
For unlisted-yet-fakable type System.IO.StreamWriter, its behavior when faked is rather interesting in that the fake allows asserting that StreamWriter.Write() was called but disallows by way of NullReferenceException asserting that StreamWriter.WriteLine() was called:

Code in screenshot as text:
[TestFixture, Isolated]
public class Tests
	public void TestFakabilityOfStreamWriterWrite()
		var fakeStreamWriter = Isolate.Fake.Instance<StreamWriter>(Members.MustBeSpecified);
		Isolate.WhenCalled(() => fakeStreamWriter.Write((string)null)).IgnoreCall();
		fakeStreamWriter.Write("Value"); // Does not throw
		Isolate.Verify.WasCalledWithExactArguments(() => fakeStreamWriter.Write("Value"));
		Assert.AreEqual(1, Isolate.Verify.GetTimesCalled(() => fakeStreamWriter.Write((string)null)));

	public void TestFakabilityOfStreamWriterWriteLine()
		var fakeStreamWriter = Isolate.Fake.Instance<StreamWriter>(Members.MustBeSpecified);
		Isolate.WhenCalled(() => fakeStreamWriter.WriteLine((string)null)).IgnoreCall();
		fakeStreamWriter.WriteLine("Value"); // Throws with NullReferenceException
		Isolate.Verify.WasCalledWithExactArguments(() => fakeStreamWriter.WriteLine("Value"));
		Assert.AreEqual(1, Isolate.Verify.GetTimesCalled(() => fakeStreamWriter.WriteLine((string)null)));
