A mountain that comes in tapped and doesn't give you any benefit until you already have five other mountains out? Tch, like that'll ever catch on.

Should be legendary! That's all.

Valakut isn't Legendary? Even though it's "Valakut, THE...". Hm? I'm glad it's not, don't get me wrong. But the name seems a little too proper to mean more than one.

Bwahahaha mountains don't count as spells and can't be countered. Suck on that blue!

Your opponent had it correct, when you use Scapeshift all the mountains enter the battlefield at the same time and then the Valakut triggers. since Valakut triggers whenever a mountain comes into play it triggers for each mountain and when valakut checks to see if there are enough mountains in play it sees all six each time it checks doing a total of 18 damage.

Ben Stark was the first person to really play this combo, he played it at Worlds in Rome. It works.

God, I hate this card.
Time to drop some Spreading Seas.

Even if you're not making a valakut deck, this still seems like an alright card to put into a mono red deck. It turns your topdecked lands into lightning bolts. You don't want too many of these though because it comes into play tapped, which sucks if this is in your starting hand. So maybe like 1-2.

@ RafiqTheMiststalker

I always figured that if you got multiples of a card like that, it either got more powerful or you just formed a mana bond with the other side of the mountain...for example, flavor wise, if I have two Howling Mines, I just figure in my mind that I just discovered more treasure in the first one

BTW, if you have four mountaains and put two mountains into play at the same time, they bot trigger for 3 damage each. They both enter play at the same time, therefore see eachother and trigger. Don't believe me, just hit up MTGO, I play a Valakut deck on there.

Now look at me, the mountains have turned into lightning bolts!

Okay, I play a lot of red. I rated this thing 5/5, because it is that good.

But I do not like it. You get uncounterable auto-burn, potentially on every turn. I play burn and I think that just makes the game into a boring affair.
