- Cast Golden Demise, using the treasure. Hold priority.
- With Golden Demise still on the stack, cast Reckless Rage targeting the opponent’s Sun-Crowned Hunters and any of your creatures. Hold priority again.
- With both other spells still on the stack. cast Fling, sacrificing your Grim Strider and targeting your opponent. It will (very briefly!) be a 5/5, so Fling will deal 5 lethal damage to your opponent, and you win before the other effects resolve.
