Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle

Land

Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle enters the battlefield tapped.

Whenever a Mountain enters the battlefield under your control, if you control at least five other Mountains, you may have Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle deal 3 damage to target creature or player.

: Add to your mana pool.

So lets say mmm i Scapeshift to a total of Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle + Vesuva copying valakut + 5 mountains and i already control any "your lands are all basic types " so everyland i have is additionally a mountain. How much dmg do i make? step by step? lol ...is it e.e ...36?

I sold a bunch of old Pokémon cards today and bought some upgrades and made some changes based on your deck.

Thanks for the help with this deck :), safe to say this deck is not budget anymore.

I squeezed in Anger since the deck definitely needs a haste enabler, it’s also a perfect discard option with cards like Big Score, Pirate's Pillage, Seize the Spoils, and Unexpected Windfall

Added Treasure Map  Flip for some extra treasure making, utility, and card draw.

Added Fable of the Mirror-Breaker  Flip I hadn’t seen this card until your deck. I dig it, makes treasures early and can copy creatures late game. I wish it was like Delina, Wild Mage and could copy Maraxus, but oh well. It’s still strong!

Added Two-Handed Axe This card feels so perfect for this deck, an easier way to pump Maraxus with out the mana spend.

Added Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle had to pick up this mono red staple. Just great for getting opponents within fling range or handling certain threatening creatures.

Added War Room just a little extra draw

Added Shadowspear, just too good of a card to not include. The more life link in this deck the easier it will be to win off of Rupture without killing myself in the process.

Added Champion's Helm, there’s not a lot of hexproof equipment out there. Decided to replace the Mask with Helm, equip 1 beats equip 3

Added Swashbuckler Extraordinaire potential win con card, sac a few treasures give Maraxus and a few cards double strike until end of turn and boom!

Now lastly I really want to add Goblin Engineer Adding Goblin Engineer would make it so I could discard 3 CMC or less artifacts to Big Score, Pirate's Pillage, Seize the Spoils, and Unexpected Windfall if engineer is on board already or in hand.

I’m not sure what to cut for Goblin Engineer and I would love your advice!

Thanks again IHATENAMES

Update:

OUT:

  • Sol Ring
  • Goblin Engineer (It does not really synergize with the combo, it was in to find Zuran Orb but I kind of have enough ways to find it and not enough artifacts to sacrifice.)
  • Roil Elemental (It was a cute card but I had to cut one more card for some more consistency and with the amount of tutors I play generally I will always rather have Tatyova or Gitrog Monster which are both tutorable by Bring to Light.)
  • Pact of Negation (Pact of Negation is kind of an expensive card and I think I like Pyroblast more, it's mainly to combat counterspells on the second sunrise anyway and Pyroblast has some added utility to it which I think makes it better.)
  • Mana Vault
  • Overgrown Tomb (Decided I want to run just 3 shock lands, this one might get back into the deck but I opted for others first.)
  • Mox Diamond
  • Mana Crypt
  • Krark-Clan Ironworks (Decided to get rid of the KCI saccing mana rocks before second sunrise plan, it was too convoluted and I want to go for a more land centric deck.)
  • Valakut Exploration (This was also one of my other win conditions, and I liked Roil Elemental first above this but decided to cut both.)
  • Izzet Chronarch (Got replaced by Timeless Witness.)

IN:

  • Krosan Wayfarer (Has some early game utility while still being excellend in the Combo.)
  • Pyroblast
  • Cosmic Intervention (I somehow overlooked this card but I am really excited to add this as an early game play for value.)
  • Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath (Uro is already an insane card, it sacrifices itself which is great, it's basically a recurrable Explore with the added bonus of sometimes being a powerful body, I think it will work excellend in the deck.)
  • Farseek
  • Explore (Both replace my mana rocks for some early mana ramp.)
  • Breeding Pool
  • Temple Garden
  • Hallowed Fountain
  • Timeless Witness
  • Unbridled Growth (Fixes mana and sacrifices for a card, the other candidate was chromatic star which would also be good but I think Unbridled will have more value as you don't need to sacrifice it to gain it's fixing effect.)

I decided to cut my mana rocks that don't provide a color except for when they have a way to sacrifice themself which also made me cut my KCI from the deck.

Other Ideas: + Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle + Vesuva + Prismatic Omen

Rivel on Krenko's Goblin Cannon

I would like to recommend some cheap lands and some expensive lands.

Cheap: Myriad Landscape is a cheap, solid way to ramp a little. Since you are a goblin tribal, Path of Ancestry is also a cheap must have. Lastly, Flamekin Village is only a couple bucks, and is an additional way to give haste to a target goblin.

Expensive: (For the future, when you can afford to dump money into lands. Perhaps see if your playgroup is ok with proxies). I would look into Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, and Vesuva. Nykthos can generate insane amounts of mana with your devotion as a mono red deck. Valakut rewards you for playing mountains with some additional burn damage to either control the field or poke someones face. Lastly, I am fond of Vesuva for its ability to copy other lands. Very powerful to get a second copy of the previously mentioned lands, or some strong non basics an opponent controls. I would replace mountains for those.

I’m going to assume this was competitive modern, and the combo of Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle with Scapeshift.

If this doesn’t sound right, provide some more details on format, colours etc

Apologies for the double post, but Gidgetimer's suggestions of Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle and Akoum Hellkite could also fit in the Nixilis Warp deck, but I personally haven't seen that.

Hey, welcome to the site. The Q&A section is for rules questions, I'm sure a moderator will come move it in a bit.

Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle would do something like that, it is normally used with Scapeshift though, not something that returns lands to the deck. Akoum Hellkite could also do something like you are describing, but I'm not sure if it was ever in a popular deck.

Wuzibo on [[Primer]] - Daretti - Degenerate Artifacts

2 months ago

Hey I've ran daretti since he was released. He was my first commander. I gotta say Springjack Pasture can be awesome. Daretti, because he's artifact focused, doesn't need a lot of colored mana, so you are really free with your mana base and can run all sorts of utility lands. This deck looks good. I like springjack as a mana sink to dump mana into kind of like a shitty mana battery. Then i got little goats i can sac with ashnods, or with springjack, or just chump blockers for Daret. It also combos with Trading Post. Goatland. It's great. It also lets you build up a board without building up a board, which can be really helpful in situations where you don't want to play your hand because it will draw hate or be very threatening, or there is hate on the board that prevents you from playing your hand, and it's ramp in a way too.

you can also cut the fetch's, throw in stranglehold, then in the fetch's slots put in Tomb of the Spirit Dragon, or Phyrexia's Core, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, and some more mountains. Basics are strong, it's harder to deal with them. If you're going a stax route, Hammerheim is good too.

And i know this is a little convoluted, but, Kurkesh, Onakke Ancient can combo with Voltaic Key for infinite mana the same way as Rings of Brighthearth with Gilded Lotus if you want to run it, or, Mycosynth Lattice or some other way to let you spend mana of any color. I don't have those effects, so i'm using lotus, kurkesh, and key. Even if you aren't going infinite with it, it lets you make an absurd amount of colorless mana
