1. Cast Act of Treason the Cauldron Familiar. Athreos is now a creature.

2. Activate Weapon Rack, targeting Athreos.

3. Attack. Because Athreos and Archon each have 5 power, they must be blocked, allowing Cauldron Familiar to hit for 4, taking the opponent down to 1.

4. Post-combat, cast Angrath’s Rampage ourselves and choosing “Creature.” Sacrifice Harmonious Archon when it resolves.

5. At end of turn, use Athreos’ trigger to put a Coin counter on Cauldron Familiar.

6. At cleanup step, Cauldron Familiar goes back under its owners’ control, then immediately dies to state-based effects as a 0/0. Athreos triggers, returning it to the battlefield under our control, and its ETB effect drains the opponent for a lethal 1.
