As always, there is only one way to “beat” this puzzle, and it’s all about choosing the right card(s). Give them too many and they have a lot of tools at their disposal. Give them too few and we bleed ourselves to death.

Let’s look at scenarios:

  1. Cast Hunt the Weak targeting Kiln Fiend and Blood Baron of Vizkopa.
  2. Cast Emerge Unscathed on Kiln Fiend, choosing either White or Black.
  3. Hunt the Weak resolves making Kiln Fiend a 9/4 due to Corpsejack Menace and its own triggers, and Blood Baron dies with no lifelink gain due to Emerge Unscathed preventing the damage.
  4. Attack – opponent’s best block lets 2 + 3 + 4 = 9 through for lethal!
