Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle Discussion

Beebles on [[Primer v2.5]] - OM_RATH!!! (EMN Update!!!)

1 day ago

Hey there,

I like your list. I've written down a few cards to try for my Mina and Denn build that I've missed so far. Hope I can return the favor by mentioning things I kind of missed in your list.

  • Undiscovered Paradise can give you an additional landfall trigger per turn when you have no more lands in hand
  • I am running the panorama lands (like Jund Panorama) over evolving wilds because they offer more flexibility: they help get you that colerless requirement for world breaker, and you can wait to sac them when it is most useful.
  • You are running Scapeshift but not Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, Vesuva and Thespian's Stage? So much additional damage potential is waiting for you (you can get valakut and X mountains with scapeshift even if you do not yet have 5 mountains in play, they will all trigger with valakut. If valakut was already in play, you can get Vesuva with scapeshift for double damage. And no, valakut is not legendary, so you can copy it).
  • Sheltered Thicket would be a nice fit here as well.
  • Quirion Ranger is a similar hero with burgeoning as ghost town

Hope there was something there that matches your vision for the deck.

GL & GF,

I have several similar decks. I love the Landfall mechanic, honestly, I like going with more Mountains and some Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle. It's just one of my favorite cards ever to use with Landfall.

I'm also currently enjoying White as a third color for the Renegade Rallier + Sakura-Tribe Elder synergy; also Steppe Lynx

You could try Grafdigger's Cage to defend yourself against toolbox decks that could try to use Chord of Calling or Collected Company to get back in the game, and it's extra graveyard hate as a bonus. Blessed Alliance can also help against Burn and Eldrazi, and it's a brutal combat trick to bust on an opponent once you've gotten some big creatures on the table. You could also try Runed Halo to protect yourself from things like Death's Shadow and Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle. My last piece of advice would be to sneak a couple of utility lands into your maindeck - Ghost Quarter is a good way to slow down big mana decks and kill manlands, and Mutavault can be sweeper insurance.

Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle would be a good fit

McDeity on Xenabro

People have already done a fine job of suggesting creatures (personally, I run all value-driven dudes in Gruul), so I'll reccomend some lands instead. Skarrg, the Rage Pits is essentially a free spell to grant trample, and Rogue's Passage likewise can get your guys through; ordinarily, I'm not too big on the card, but it could do some work here. Spinerock Knoll should be easy to trigger (heck- it doesn't even have to be you doing the damage), and Yavimaya Hollow is an oft-overlooked means of saving a key fatty. Being only two colors, and having access to great ramp like Skyshroud Claim, Hunting Wilds, and Ranger's Path you could cut some of your lesser dual lands for basics; and by increasing your mountain count can run Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle (kills an opponent with Boundless Realms). Lastly, as you run some fat-astic monsters, a Homeward Path is a reasonable concession to the blue decks running about. Cheers and God bless. -McDeity

I did say it was a ton:

Arbor Elf x5, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, Misdirection (masques), Dakmor Salvage x3 (2 FUT, 1 DD), Sudden Shock x2, Wild Nacatl x2, Qasali Pridemage, Martyr of Sands x2, Nimble Mongoose, Thought Scour x4 (3 DKA, 1 DD), Skred x4, Kor Firewalker x4, Zealous Persecution x2, Firespout, Magma Jet (DD), Dissipate x2 (M15), Darksteel Citadel x2, Breakthrough (CNS), Sakura-Tribe Elder x4, Duress x4 (M13), Sulfur Elemental x2, Vapor Snag, Ornithopter x4, Wipe Away, Mystical Teachings x2, Boreal Druid x3, Volcanic Fallout (CNS), Ingot Chewer x4, Empty the Warrens x4, Punishing Fire x4, Condemn x4, Dragon's Claw x4, Combust x4, Elvish Visionary x4, Farseek x4, Edge of Autumn x4 (FUT), Repeal x4 (GPT), Think Twice x4 (TSP), Intangible Virtue x4, Raise the Alarm x2, Celestial Purge x4, Ray of Revelation (JUD), Apostle's Blessing x4, Patrician's Scorn x4 (FUT), Wispmare x4, Leonin Relic-Warder x2, Izzet Staticaster, Grapple with the Past x3, Take Inventory x2, Steel Sabotage x4, Zulaport Cutthroat x2, Blessed Alliance, Lightning Storm, Welding Jar, Stubborn Denial, Dispel (2 RTR, 2 BFZ), Faerie Macabre x2, Tuktuk Scrapper, and Energy Flux

That's everything I have that's unlisted from your wants. Everything that's listed as a match I checked to make sure I still have, so request anything. There are a few cards that I've offered to other people for trades, so if you want them I'll wait a day or two on their reply (specifically, the Eldrazi Displacers you mentioned).

I also added a few things since you last looked though my binder, like 4 Puresteel Paladins and 4 Etched Champions, so let me know if anything new jumps out at you.

Since you mentioned edition, I tried to be accurate on what printing each card is with these. I can't guarantee that everything in my binder is 100% accurate on edition, but I try to do my best to make sure each card is at least showing the correct art and card frame.

Cards of yours I'm specifically interested in are: Diabolic Intent, 2 Stoneforge Mystics, Gate to Phyrexia, Monastery Mentor, 2 Toxic Deluge, Forbidden Orchard, and Quirion Ranger, though of course I'll trade for any other matches as well.

Hope to hear from you.

Casey4321: I might include Ensnaring Bridge anyway. It's just such a good card...

Delta-117: Ooh, I'll look into Geier Reach Sanitarium! I really should put in Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle as well. The rest of your suggestions are very helpful, and I think most of them will make it into my next draft, thanks!

Workman4137: Thanks for the comment! Unfortunately, I don't think I have enough targeted spells that I want to copy to my own creatures (I don't want to Lightning Bolt everything lol). But I do have a deck centered around Zada herself, if you want to take a look! :) Red Scare: Zada EDH | *PRIMER*

Phaetion: Ooh, got a list? Someone suggested that I put in more artifacts and abuse them with Daretti, Scrap Savant, Goblin Welder, etc, so I might include Staff of Nin and Mind's Eye to do that. Firestorm is in here (and an amazing card it is!) but I'll find a slot for some spellshapers :) Thanks for your comment! You're always welcome to leave a +1 if you like the deck ;)

Dredge4life: Ooh! I didn't think of lifelink with her. I could see that working pretty well. Thanks!

Zimmers_0: I know, she's hard to work with :/ On the other hand, it's oddly freeing to gleefully dump your whole hand to Nahiri's Wrath without a second thought! Haha. Thanks for the comment and upvote!
