Hour of Devastation – Puzzle #4
Welcome back to Possibility Storm, the weekly MTG puzzle series, available exclusively through MTGCanada and PossibilityStorm.com.
This week’s puzzle is ready for you, and its solution can be expanded below the image. Keep in mind that the counters on your opponent’s creatures are +1/+1 counters, as this is very relevant. We have a bunch of other important assumptions that you should familiarize yourself to get the most out of these puzzles, available to view at rules.possibilitystorm.com.

- Activate Sinister Concoction, discarding Grind // Dust, milling yourself for one, and targeting your own Thraben Inspector. You now have Delirium, with a land, creature, sorcery, and enchantment in the bin.
- Cast Gryff’s Boon on Thraben Foulbloods.
- Cast Trial of Solidarity.
- Attack with a 7/5 flying Archfiend of Ifnir and 7/4 flying menace Thraben Foulbloods. Your opponent has two flying blockers and can’t get in the way of both, and takes 7 for lethal.
Does something need clarification? Check out the official Rules and Assumptions to see if your answer lies within.
