  1. Attack with all three Zombie tokens.
  2. If they block none, they die. If they block one, we Shock them to death. And if they block two, we use both Harnessed Lightnings to make two Treasures from Revel in Riches, deal 2 damage to them with Reckless Fireweaver, and then Shock them to death.
  3. If they (correctly) block all three, then they will have at least one creature that can be finished off with 3 damage to it. Cast Burning Sun’s Avatar, targeting that creature with its ETB ability. That creature and its controller take 3 damage, and the creature dies, creating a Treasure and taking 1 damage from Reckless Fireweaver to bring them to 2.
  4. Use the new Treasure to cast Shock, targeting the opponent, to finish the job.
