I've heard similar questions asked before, and yeah Epochalyptik is correct for official rules, but honestly if the people you play with allow it (assuming it's casual play) as long as you can correctly play with it (I'm not too familiar with EDH, so I don't REALLY know how that would work) you can use it.

Wait never mind, I'm totally incorrect...disregard that, Elbrus wouldn't work either way...
