Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle Discussion

I really really want to build this deck. I already have a mono red deck that is my pride and joy but this concept is incredibly fun and i love the flavor of it. Awesome introduction as well!

I am curious to know if you've considered running Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle. It's an easy slot to fill and with 25 mountains i don't see a reason why not.

Here is a list of cards in no particular order that will definitely increase the deck synergy.

Sylvan Library, Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Amulet of Vigor, Strip Mine, Wasteland, Entomb, World Shaper, Squandered Resources, Dark Confidant, Zuran Orb, Wheel of Fortune, Reforge the Soul, Dark Petition, Natural Order, Prismatic Omen, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, Dark Depths, Thespian's Stage, Glacial Chasm

Some of the cards are definitely over $20 but off the bat I would invest in Amulet of Vigor or Sylvan Library first.

Running both Prismatic Omen and the Chromatic Lantern will help you pay for Jodah's ability more reliably.

People also use the omen for Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle decks and just decks that really care about the land types along with the color fixing.

Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle seems like an awkward inclusion. There are only 7 Mountain cards in the whole deck. The best case scenario is using Scapeshift to grab all 8 cards at once, but the potential damage is reduced for every Mountain you already have in play when that happens.

Don't worry about the time. Stolen Strategy sounds neat tbh. Cheering Fanatic was one and the other one was Treasure Nabber. I am giving a try to Reverberate in my Lyzolda deck to copy ramp early on or my X spells later on.

Wouldn't you be interested in adding Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle or Hall of the Bandit Lord? Maybe even Hanweir Battlements

gb, thanks for the suggestion! I'll definitely test Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle because I like the ability to deal direct damage because the deck can struggle against strategies that flood the board.

5poons on cEDH; Temur Valakut

1 month ago

I just began playing EDH a couple of months ago and my first deck was a Child of Alara land deck that used Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle as the primary win condition. Recently I have wanted to change the commander and possibly shave off a color or two in the process! While researching more land based commanders I stumbled upon your temur build and it grabbed my interest. Due to this I have lots of questions :)

Why are you running Meloku the Clouded Mirror instead of Trade Routes? It has a much lower CMC, dodges prevalent creature removal, and has a second ability that could be relevant in certain situations. Also Llanowar Scout is literally just a better Budoka Gardener. They have the same ability although his body is better and he wont forcefully change into a different creature. His body is also better than Walking Atlas but because the atlas is colorless it is still great and definitely deserves a spot.

One interesting card I stumbled upon is Hedron Crab as he helps fill your graveyard. Do you think it could be a useful card?

Would you ever use the card Clear the Land? It is a way to put land onto the battlefield, but it presents a risk as it could exile any number of cards. The card would be hilarious if someone tutored before your turn and was forced to exile what they wanted.

Is Training Grounds even worth running as it literally only affects Thrasios, Triton Hero?

Is Return to the Earth worth the extra cost when compared to something like Naturalize? I understand that it kills Aven Mindcensor and the cost is less important when you have lots of lands, but it still seems very heavy.

I noticed that your list doesn’t contain Eternal Witness but has Life from the Loam. What do you do if you unintentionally send Scapeshift or Splendid Reclamation to an early grave?

I really like the card Excavation and have seen a card that is kind of similar but also quite different called Aggressive Mining. Maybe it could be used before the 'big turn' to try and find more fuel for a Manabond or something else? Plus the sacrificed lands could be easily recurred and used later. I'm curious to see if you would you ever use this, why or why not?

Would you ever consider shifting the deck to Lord Windgrace or do you thing that would make the deck less reliable? By gaining black you would have access to more tutors, but you already have land tutors and that is about all you need... But by losing blue you would eliminate lots of sources of card draw and stax effects. So I guess answered my own question lol, but still want to hear your opinion.

I understand Thrasios, Triton Hero and his role in the deck, but is Kraum, Ludevic's Opus literally just there for access to the color red and a possibly offensive option?

Alright! I think that is all of the questions I have at the moment. Thank you for sharing this deck! This may be the way I want to change my Child of Alara deck and your answers will help me fully decide this.
