Possibility Storm

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.

Ikoria Puzzle – Mutate This!

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?
