4: Hungry Like the Wolf

Today you’re playing against Norie at your kitchen table, and both of you brought your casual decks for this occasion. You’ve made some progress with your Wolf collection recently, and you figured that it was time to sleeve it up and send the pack running.

Unfortunately for you, however, Norie brought her lifegain deck. So for the past hour, your wolves have run into a brick wall of white spells and mass removal, and you’re feeling thoroughly defanged. Now, Norie’s sitting behind a huge life total, and you’re almost out of cards.

After dropping an Elspeth Tirel and making three Soldier tokens during her turn, Norie activated her Sands of Delirium during your upkeep in an attempt to win the game right there and then. She miscalculated, though, and after your draw step, you were left with one last card in your library (a Burst of Strength, in case you wanted to know).

So now what to do? You thought you might as well go out in style, so you cast Serene Remembrance and reshuffled three copies of Howling Wolf back into your library. It was only after you made this move that you looked at the board and started wondering if you can somehow salvage this situation.

It is your first main phase. Can you win the game this turn?
