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:

  1. Choose to start with Angrath, Minotaur Pirate on the battlefield, and Vraska, Scheming Gorgon in your deck.
  2. Cast Vraska's Scorn to take your opponent to 5. Tutor up Vraska if you like, but we won't be casting her.
  3. Cast Angrath's Fury, killing any creature other than your Khenra Eternal. The 3 damage takes your opponent to 2.
  4. Go to combat and attack with at Khenra Eternal. They must block to survive, and its Afflict trigger will take them to 1.
  5. Finally, finish them off with Angrath's +1. It will also kill a bunch of creatures, but none of that is relevant at this point anyways!
