    The Undead Alchemist has a replacement ability which turns the damage that would be dealt into mill. Your opponent will take no commander damage.

    1. The spell will resolve immediately. Once both players have passed priority without adding something to the stack the topmost spell resolves or the game moves to the next phase if it is empty.
    2. Correct.
    3. No. Blood Moon overrides Valakut's text and makes it have only the same text as a basic mountain. This is different from Prismatic Omen which grants the mountain subtype in addition to other types.
    4. Your non-basic lands will be non-basic lands with all basic land subtypes. Note that if the cards had been played in reverse order all your non basic lands would be only mountains.
    5. The ability triggers once he is declared an attacker and yes your opponent can respond. There is nothing really special about his ability.

    Your opponent is correct. Whenever an action occurs in magic (either with a player casting a spell or an ability triggering) both players get a chance to respond by doing something. In this case he is responding to the heroic trigger by casting shock before the heroic trigger can resolve.

    Ash Zealot isn't really a very effective card. There aren't that many decks actually casting spells from the GY and being a 2/2 means she doesn't match up well with all the x/3's in the format.

    Volcanic Fallout vs. Anger of the Gods is more of a meta choice. Generally speaking you'll want Slagstorm over Anger because it allows you the option of hitting players if you need the extra damage.
