- +1 Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, making him a 5/5. Note that Gideon’s emblem in play makes him a 6/6 and the Knight token a 3/3.
- Cast Illusory Wrappings on Gideon, making him an 0/2 (well, 1/3 actually).
- Cast Dead Weight on the Knight Token, making it a 1/1.
- Attack with both creatures. Because of Behind the Scenes, neither creature can be blocked because your opponent’s blockers all have greater power than them.
- After blockers are (not) declared, cast Anguished Unmaking on Illusory Wrappings, returning Gideon to 6/6.
- Your opponent takes 6 + 1 = 7 damage for lethal.
Does something needs clarification? Check out the official Rules and Assumptions to see if your answer lies within.
