Zendikar Spoiler – Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle August 30, 2009

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.

What’s with the art? Is that another card in the “art” portion of the card?

Looks damn strange. Fishy, even.

It’s a fake but it’s based on the picture released somewhere with the card partial revealed. The text is said to be like that but it’s not confirmed. If this is the real text it’s a very slow ability but could be useful in mono red decks.

I dont think it would say OTHER mountains, considering this is a nonbasic land. Wizards would never word it that way, so I believe this is fake

Read it closely, dimwit. “Whenever a Mountain enters the battlefield under your control, if you control five other mountains…”. It’s not dependent on other Mountain Pinnacles, it’s dependent on other mountains coming into your play. Also, this is a real card. It’s on the M:tG spoiler site.

Hey guys,
Im the admin over at GatheringMagic.com
Just wanted to say “I told you so” 🙂

Just kidding, anyway.. our spoilers are on the bleeding edge so you dont always get a clean card.. and sometimes.. as in this case.. I had to make the card.

Just keep that in mind.
