Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle Discussion

Saljen, good afternoon. I forgot about how Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle is a non-legendary land. I'm going to see how I can add in Vesuva. Worse case, I get a tapped mountain. Best case, second bolt. Thespian's Stage would be a maybe. Thanks for the input! :D

Vesuva and Thespian's Stage can copy Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, giving you additional Bolt triggers. You play one Mountain and each copy of Valakut triggers a Bolt, so you get 2-3 Bolts instead of just 1. Thespian's Stage works with Dark Depths in that if DD is in play with counters, you make Thespian's Stage a copy of it and since it's already in play, it doesn't gain counters, as that happens as it would enter the battlefield. Now there are 2 legendary DDs in play, due to the legendary rule you get to chose one to sacrifice. Sacrifice the one with counters, then the copy sees that it has no counters and is sacrificed for a 20/20 indestructable flier. The DD isn't super necessary, and it's better if you have a way to search out lands. It's an amazing bit of synergy though that can give you an additional win-con and the copies turn Valakut from an annoyance to a real threat.

Saljen, Good evening. I'm trying to understand. How is Vesuva and Thespian's Stage (and eventually Dark Depths) important to Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle?

The rest of the cards I have in my burn deck that differ from your list revolved around me emptying my hand to allow ensnaring bridge to protect me. They may or may not meet your criteria (and most probably don't as they just double the initial lightning bolt but some are direct damage) but thought I'd list them anyway:

Cursed Scroll, Isochron Scepter, Firestorm, Fire Servant, Hazoret the Fervent, Masticore, Dual Casting, Harness the Storm, Pyromancer Ascension, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, Increasing Vengeance, Searing Blood, Skullcrack, Thunderous Wrath, Harsh Mentor

Definitely should consider adding Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle! It is extremely powerful. Since you will be getting land drops out consistently and fast it will put work in for you. Friend plays it in his deck and it has become a nightmare. Crop Rotation to search for it when needed and boom. Crop Rotation is an excellent card as well.

Mina and Denn works great with Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle as part of your land base.

@Crashdasher, I used to run Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle when I ran 7 mountains when Mina and Denn, Wildborn was in the deck but found it lackluster even with the ability to bounce mountains back to my hand to replay. Only running 1 Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle just doesn't do enough in multiplayer. If you're running a more red heavy Omnath variant then I think it could work for some incidental damage but not worth the slot in this variant in my opinion. You'll almost always want to get better lands with your Scapeshift anyway.
