There may actually be one other way to beat this puzzle, but it's still awfully similar. Think you can find it? Here is the official solution:
- Go to combat.
- Anointed Deacon triggers, target Skymarch Bloodletter to make it a 4/2.
- Attack with all.
- Sanctum Seeker triggers five times, from five Vampires, and takes your opponent to 10.
- Before blocks, sacrifice all creatures other than Yahenni, Undying Partisan itself, and the Bloodletter, to Yahenni. Be sure to sacrifice the Dire Fleet Hoarder last.
- Dire Fleet Hoarder's death trigger goes on the top of the stack - let that resolve, creating a treasure.
- With Yahenni's triggers still on the stack, use the treasure to make red mana and Harnessed Lightning[/c Yahenni.
- Let combat finish, and your opponent tales 4 from the Bloodletter and goes to 6.
- Cast [c]Bloodcrazed Paladin. Because five creatures died this turn, it becomes a 6/6 when it enters the battlefield.
- Fling it at the opponent for a lethal 6!
