Magic: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013: Say Your Praetors (Black) Challenge Solution

Updated on June 25, 2013


Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers has become an annual release on XBox Live Arcade, Playstation Network and Steam for fans of Magic. 2013 is the newest iteration of the series, and was the first time the series was released for the iPad as well. One of the popular features of the games has been a series of challenges pitting the player in a pre-designed situation that he/she must figure out how to overcome and achieve victory from the jaws of defeat. In 2013 10 new challenges await to be uncovered...

The sixth challenge is Say Your Praetors. Your opponent controls Five Praetors and you control just one blocker. There are five different ways to win this challenge -- one for each Praetor. In this case you will stand against the Black Praetor, Sheoldred.

Step 1: Jace will attack with everything, block Sheoldred with Baneslayer Angel

Step 2: Cast Giant Growth and Brute Force on Baneslayer Angel to make her a 9/9, which will kill Sheoldred. You will be left with 7 life after all damage has been dealt.

Step 3: On your turn attack with Baneslayer Angel.

Step 4: Jace will cast Leaf Arrow on your Baneslayer Angel, hit "Stop the Timer" and cast Veteran's Reflexes on your Baneslayer Angel. (If you cast the Veteran's Reflexes first he will react by casting Leaf Arrow, which will kill your Baneslayer Angel before she gets the +1/+1 bonus)

Step 5: Damage will resolve and you will be victorious
