Valakut + mindbend + urborg combo damage?

Asked by nickiru 4 years ago

Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle is down already and I change its ''mountain'' word in the text to swamp using Mind Bend; if I Scapeshift the quantity of lands, but they aren't mountains or swamps, to use valakut and one of them is Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth will the landfall happen as swamps for valakut to trigger?

You will get your triggers as long as you control at least five swamps after scapeshift. If you get a second Valakut it will not trigger because Mind Bend only applies to one specific card.

It will work as long as you sacrifice at least 5 lands and do not sacrifice the Mindbended Valakut.

lordoftheshadowscan it work in a different way where you instead. sac necessary lands for combo and 2 of the lands you look for are urborg and valakut. Can you Mind Bend the urborg from swamps to mountain in time or in response to anything to cause all the lands entering to be mountains and trigger valakut?

No you cannot. Valakut has a intervening if clause which means that the trigger condition is checked before it triggers and before it resolves. So in this case you wouldn't be able to make the swamps mountains before the trigger would check.

Also please ask new questions in new threads.
