I offer you guys a challenge. Below will be a board state set up, and it is your job to beat your opponent this turn. I'll start off with an easy one at first. If you guys like this I'll gladly post more. So, can you figure it out?

Your opponent has 6 life left. On his side of the board he has 5 1/1 Goblin tokens and has a Ghostly Prison in play. He is completely tapped out, and has no cards in his hand.

You have a Blind-Spot Giant , a face down Ainok Survivalist and a Expedition Map in play. You have 2 swamps, 3 Forest, and 3 mountains

It is the start of your turn and you draw a Beseech the Queen. In your hand you have Crush Underfoot, Akoum Boulderfoot and a Ahn-Crop Crasher.

In your library you have Bloodfire Colossus , Bloodshot Cyclops , Furystoke Giant , Grave Titan, Inferno Titan , Ondu Giant , Primeval Titan, Rakdos Charm, Loamdragger Giant , Heartwood Giant , Forbidden Orchard, Doom Blade, Doomgape , Awaken the Bear , Craterhoof Behemoth, Smoldering Spires, 5 mountains, 3 swamps, and 4 Forests.

It is possible for you to win this turn, but how?

Float .

Using , cast Beseech the Queen, getting Rakdos Charm.

Using , activate Expedition Map, getting Forbidden Orchard.

Play Forbidden Orchard, tap for , giving your opponent a Spirit.

Cast Rakdos Charm using dealing two to you and six to your opponent, winning the game, with a to spare.

Expedition Map for Forbidden Orchard, play it and Beseech the Queen for Rakdos Charm. Forbidden Orchard has made 6th creature for opponent and Rakdos Charm kills him. Seems too simple maybe i missed something.

Only missing information is our own life total. If we are at two life or less, this solution doesn't work.

I like this idea! Just being forced to think through possible strategies is a good way to improve in game play.

I'd love if you continued making these
