When Cards Collide

Edit 1: Did Something

Last Solution:

            Congratulations go to J.C., the first person to answer this problem correctly (that told me about it). It took him until Friday. Now that’s determination! Brad Pironciak comes a close second.

  1. Normal Summon Berserk Gorilla.
  2. Activate Creature Swap. You give your opponent Berserk Gorilla and your receive Witch of the Black Forest.
  3. Use the effect of Ultimate Offering to tribute Witch of the Black Forest to Tribute Summon Magical Marionette. Use Witch’s effect to put Shining Angel into your hand (your LP now 1500).
  4. Use the effect of Ultimate Offering twice to Normal Summon Shining Angel and Berserk Gorilla (your LP now 500).
  5. Have Shining Angel attack Shining Angel. Both are destroyed and sent to your Graveyard. Use both effects to Special Summon D. D. Warrior Lady and Banisher of the Light to your side of the field in Attack Position.
  6. Have Berserk Gorilla and Magical Marionette attack both Berserk Gorilla's on your opponent’s side of the field. All are destroyed and removed from play on your side of the field by Banisher of the Light’s effect.
  7. Have D. D. Warrior Lady attack Mad Dog of Darkness, using her effect to remove both from play (your LP now 100).
  8. Attack your opponent directly with Banisher of the Light, activating Return from the Different Dimension is response. Special Summon three Berserk Gorillas and Magical Marionette to your side of the field (your LP now 50, your opponent’s LP now 7900).
  9. Attack your opponent directly with the four Special Summoned monsters.

Final Result: Him - (-100), You – 50 


Problem - Win the Game in One Turn:

            Well, you lot asked for it. By popular demand, here we have a puzzle containing Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of the Beginning! You should all be happy now. I will give the one hint: yes, you do at some point summon him, so you should probably all know see what you should start doing (or at least once you look in your graveyard). Enjoy (smiles evilly)!

14/7/5: NOTE: You cannot activate A Deal with Dark Ruler after Dark Magician of Chaos has been destroyed as it does not go to the Graveyard.
