Possibility Storm was launched in early 2017 by Alex Wolf and Brian Dale, and has produced a new Magic puzzle (almost) every week since. The puzzles aim to let players explore unique challenges and employ unconventional tactics to "win this turn" in seemingly-impossible scenarios, and educate players on quirky rules interactions that can give them an extra edge both casual and competitive play. The project is supported by a team of judges and testers from around the world.
Ready for another mind-melting puzzle? At the center of today’s puzzle is one of Zendikar Rising’s spiciest creatures – Scourge of the Skycleaves. Can you figure out how to mess around with it to hit for lethal, regardless of however the opponent might try to stop you?

We’re back with another puzzle! This time, the board on both sides has been slowly dominated by Mutate effects, and if you don’t win this turn, it looks like your opponent might run away with victory soon. But they’re at 16 life, you can’t possibly hit them for that much this turn… can you?
Weird times call for weird puzzles, so we ventured into the world of 100-card singleton for a change with a little help from Commander aficionado Jimmy Wong! Come see if you can pilot this Marchesa madness to deal a smashing 105 damage this turn.
We’re doing things a little different this week. We start the puzzle on our opponent’s turn, and we’re under attack! Not only that, but they’re packing three Underworld Dreams that’ll finish us off the next time we draw a card.
Heeee’s a big pig! You can be a big pig too. Are Lion King references too old? Regardless, in this week’s puzzle you’ve got Pumbaa on your side and several ways to generate a lot of damage triggers. See if you can piece it all together to win this turn!
Help – Fblthp stumbled his was into this week’s puzzle! Poor little guy looks so lost. Come help him find his way home, and see if you can solve this week’s Possibility Storm “Rare”-difficulty puzzle while you’re at it. (Featuring an [almost] infinite combo.)

One more puzzle to close out the year, might as well make it one with up to SEVEN planeswalkers to make use of. The solution to this one is oh-so-satisfying, too, if you’re one to enjoy some good old fashioned poetic justice. [Solution Added]
[Solution Added] On the first day of Christmas, Oko gave to me: Eight cards for playing, counterspells to nerf them, another Lucky Clover, trampling Elementals, several static abilities, 9 mana for antics, and a big flippin’ Emmmbeercleeeave.
[Solution Added] It’s been one of those games where you’ve grinded the opponent down to their final life points, but now the board appears to be totally gummed up. Rest assured though, there’s a way to win it if you find luck on your side.
With three beefy fliers, victory appears to be within your grasp. But your opponent’s Dovin just won’t stop making more Thopters. Can you find a way to get through the wall of robot bees and win this turn?
Back-to-back puzzles with Curry Favor/Smitten Swordmaster? It’s true, but this time it’s a whole different barrel of monkeys with Syr Gwyn and some exciting equipment shenanigans afoot. Can you solve it faster than our quickest competitor did in 10 minutes 10 seconds?
