Hello and welcome back for another week of MTG puzzles!
You’re sitting at 1 life with an Overgrown Tomb in hand that you’d love to rely on for mana this turn, but you currently don’t have a way to gain life. This challenging puzzle is full of nifty tricks that you’ll have to discover if you expect to solve it!

1. Cast Usher to Safety targeting the Godless Shrine tapped to cast it. 2. Activate Kaya's -5 ability on yourself, simultaneously losing and gaining 1 life, triggering Vengeful Warchief to give it a +1/+1 counter. 3. Tap Vengeful Warchief for G, and your remaining lands for 1GG. 4. Use Jiang Yanggu's -1 ability targeting Trollbred Guardian. 5. Cast Outmuscle, targeting Trollbred Guardian and End-Raze Forerunners. Because of Adamant, the Guardian lives while the Forerunners are destroyed. 6. Attack with a 3/3 Wandermare and a 7/7 trample Trollbred Guardian, into a 5/3 blocker. Regardless of blocks made, the opponent will take 7 damage for lethal!
