  1. Istanbul Sucker MCs call me sire.

    Anyone have any luck with today's Magic: The Puzzling? I just can't work it out...if you hadn't cast that Spy Network, I could win this turn, but the best I can do is 15 damage.

    IIRC you cast the Spy Network at the end of turn of your opponent.

    In that case you can Threaten the Groundshaker and play a Pyromancer and attack for 17.

    sorry, :)

    in that case you have to do the following (took me a while, this puzzle is spicked with red herrings) :

    Your turn

    Put the Contested Cliffs, then the Goblin Pyromancer on top of your library with the Network.

    Threaten the Groundshaker (leave open forest forest mountain), attack with it, Sledder, Slateback and the Biologist (12 dmg)

    activate Sparksmith targeting the Groundshaker (2 dmg to you)

    Cycle the Thicket, play the drawn Contested Cliffs.

    Sacrifice Sparksmith via Sledder to make the Elven Riders 4/4, activate the Cliffs and let Groundshaker (with 2 dmg on it) + Riders take each other out.

    Opponent's turn

    He will play the Brackus.

    Your 2nd turn

    You play the Pyromancer you've drawn and attack with a 4/1 Sledder a 4/3 Slateback and a 1/2 Biologist.

    He has two ways to block, but either way he will take 5 dmg (or 6 if you sac the Pyromancer ;) ) and he'll die.
  6. train The Wildcard!!!...

    Thanks!:D :cool:

    D'oh!

    For some reason, I thought you had to win THAT TURN.
