- Cast Cartouche of Zeal on Alley Strangler. Use the Cartouche’s “target creature can’t block this turn” ability on one of the 5-toughness fliers.
- Cast Harmless Offering on Alley Strangler. The opponent gains control of Alley Strangler, and the Cartouche (now enchanting an illegal target) falls off due to state-based effects.
- Cast Fatal Push, targeting the other 5-toughness flier.
- Attack with Glorybringer and Goldnight Castigator, exerting Glorybringer to deal 4 damage to Drana’s Emissary.
- The opponent can’t block either 4-damage attacker, and you deal 8 for lethal.
Does something needs clarification? Check out the official Rules and Assumptions to see if your answer lies within.
