While looking at Zedikar Spoilers on Gathering Magic.com I stumbled across Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle. Now I’m not sure if this card is official or not but I’m really interested in that triggered ability, “…as long as you control 5 other mountains.” After the Shards of Alara block forcing three color decks are we seeing a direct and dramatic shift back to mono color? I seem to think so. The high color specific cost of Sorin and Chandra. The color specificness of the other official spoilers do seem to be pointing us in a mono color centric block.
Again assuming this spoiler is correct can we expect a cycle of these lands? Probably. Will green add elves or mana, will black destroy target creature, will blue draw a card, and white give +1/+1 counters. Cold be really awesome cycle.
