Magic: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2014 Challenge #4: Blood is Life

Updated on June 27, 2013
Source

Scenario Description

You must survive the attack this round and counterattack to win next round.

He will attack with Rumbling Baloth (4/4) and Yavimaya Wurm (6/4, Trample), which is a combination more than strong enough to destroy you outright. A second Rumbling Baloth he holds in return to prevent your counterattack, but that's only if you live that long.

You have Markov Patrician (3/1, Lifelink) and Child of Night (2/1, Lifelink) to block with. You also have a Gloomhunter (2/1, Flying) which is tapped. Can you tap into Lifelink to survive this round?

Notes

Still want to try to solve this on your own? These tips can put you in the right direction.

  • You gain life from Lifelink as soon as the damage occurs
  • Trample damage occurs after damage between creature
  • Stopping the Baloth prevents four damage, while double-blocking the Yavimaya Wurm only prevents one extra damage
  • It doesn't matter how many creatures you have left if you're the last one standing

Solution

  1. Block both of the attackers with one blocker each, it doesn't matter which blocks which so long as both are blocked. (I don't know why she only attacks with two, she'd win if she attacked with all three...)
  2. Attack with the Gloomhunter
  3. Win

    And no, the 4/4 does not have summoning sickness. If she attacked with everything she'd win. This challenge just got dumber.

    lol this was the dumbest challenge ever. It's not even a challenge. You obviously have to block both. It doesn't even matter which order. By whose definition is this a challenge?
