Ixalan Season - Puzzle #2
Welcome back to Possibility Storm, the weekly MTG puzzle series available exclusively through MTGCanada and PossibilityStorm.com.
This wouldn't be Ixalan season if it wasn't overrun with Dinosaurs. This week's Jurassic Park puzzle was solved by our Patron Erin Vaartjes in a blazing 5m 42s. Think you can do better?

Think you've got it? Check your answer against the solution below:

- Cast Regisaur Alpha, make a 3/3 Dinosaur token with trample (and haste thanks to the Alpha.)
- Use Huatli, Warrior Poet's 0 ability to make a 3/3 Dinosaur token with trample (and haste thanks to the Alpha.)
- Attack with your three 3/3s and your 0/3 Kinjalli's Caller, then cast Dinosaur Stampede, making them into three 5/3s and an 2/3.
- Your opponent has two 4-toughness creatures, which are most effective here by blocking two of the 5/3s and soaking up 4 trample damage each. Still, that reduces 17 attacking power just down to 9, which is enough to defeat them.
- The Sun-Crowned Hunters' triggers go on the stack, but guess what, you already won, so you don't need to worry about the fact that you'd die as they resolve!
