11. Using Morophon's discount, cast Shields of Velis Vel targeting the opponent which has the best creatures, turning them into dragons. Then cast Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund to gain control of all those creatures and give all your creatures haste.

Note: If a Hoarding Broodlord in your graveyard and not your library, include Bladewing the Risen as one of your 5 dragons. Select Hoarding Broodlord in the graveyard upon ETB.
