When Cards Collide

Edit 2: Rebuilt Spoiler

Last Solution:

            Most of you seemed to get the idea of Priority here. There are a few variants, as usual, mostly involving Exiled Force instead of Tribe-Infecting Virus, which still gets the idea across.

1.      Normal Summon Cannon Soldier. 
a) Use your Priority to activate his effect by Tributing Witch of the Black Forest. 
b) Your opponent chains a Trap Hole. Trap Hole destroys Cannon Soldier and Cannon Solider deals 500 damage to your opponent. 
c) Witch puts Tribe-Infecting Virus into your hand (your opponent’s LP now 2700).

2.      Pay 500 Life Points to use Ultimate Offering’s effect and Normal Summon Tribe-Infecting Virus. 
a) Use your Priority to activate his effect by discarding The Agent of Judgment - Saturn and declaring Beast-Type. 
b) Your opponent chains a Trap Hole. Trap Hole destroys Tribe-Infecting Virus and Tribe-Infecting Virus destroys Mad Dog of Darkness (your LP now 1000).

3.      Flip Summon Magician of Faith. Use her effect to return Premature Burial to your hand.

4.      Activate Premature Burial by paying 800 Life Points to Special Summon The Agent of Judgment - Saturn from your Graveyard (your LP now 200).

5.      Attack your opponent directly with The Agent of Judgment - Saturn and Magician of Faith to do 2400 + 300 = 2700 damage to your opponent’s Life Points.

Final Result: Him - 0, You – 200

Not the most difficult in the world, but people were asking for a puzzle with priority.


Problem - Win the Game in One Turn:

            Getting Whooped is one thing. Getting whopped by your own monsters is a completely different thing. That’s what’s happened here. Your opponent controls a number of your monsters. In fact, the only monster that is his is the Mad Dog of Darkness; unimpressive really. Prove your obvious superiority and get him back for the injustice of being on 2000 Life Points.


Field: (the upper part of the screen are your opponent’s cards)

        Snatch Steal (face-up equipping Shining Angel)

Mad Dog of Darkness (face-up ATK)

  Berserk Gorilla (face-up ATK) Witch of the Black Forest (face-up ATK) Shining Angel (face-up ATK)
------------------ ------------------- ------------------ ------------------ -----------------


Ultimate Offering (face-up)   Return from the Different Dimension (face-down)  


Your Hand: 
Magical Marionette, Berserk Gorilla, Berserk Gorilla, Creature Swap, Double Spell


Your Life Points:                                 2000  

Your Opponent’s Life Points:             8000


Your Deck Contains the Following Cards That You Can Obtain: 
Zaborg the Thunder Monarch, X-Head Cannon, Banisher of the Light, Lesser Fiend, D. D. Warrior Lady, Y-Dragon Head, Shining Angel


Your Opponent’s Graveyard Contains: 
Book of Moon, Tribute to the Doomed, Mystical Space Typhoon


In The Following Situations, Your Opponent Will Do the Following:

1.      If Creature Swap is activated, your opponent will select Witch of the Black Forest. If Witch is not on the field, he will select Shining Angel.


The only monster on the field owned by your opponent if Mad Dog of Darkness.

You have no cards in your Fusion Deck.  
You start during your Main Phase 1 having done nothing this turn.


If this one doesn’t have at least three solutions, I will be quite surprised. I don’t see any, but then I never do.
14/7/5: Actually, it seems to only have had one.
