You’ve got Tiberce down to one life now, but he doesn’t seem to be worried. In fact, your opponent’s barely said a word to you the whole game. And that doesn’t matter at the moment, because his Platinum Angel‘s doing the talking.
You have to give him some credit, though. He’s blown up the board three times, wrestled control from your horde of random creatures, and even now is watching you from across the table, wondering if you can get out of this impossible situation.
Tiberce sighs, and signals the end of his turn. Technically he’s won already: with no cards left in your library, you’re not even going to make it to your first main phase. You start to extend your hand in congratulations.
He looks up. “What do you have?” he asks.
You fan out the cards in your hand, and he studies it for a moment. Then he shakes his head.
“Yeah,” you say. “Nothing good.”
“On the contrary,” Tiberce answers. “You have the win on the table.”
It is the beginning of your upkeep. Can you win the game before your draw step?
