Puzzle: Dragons Meet Untouchable Blockers

Welcome back to Possibility Storm for another week of Magic puzzles! With six different Dragons at your fingertips, things are looking pretty good. But your opponent has their own team of fliers and a Join Shields they can cast at any moment. Can you find a way to break through and win this turn anyway?

1. Cast Sarkhan the Masterless. Uptick him to make all your PWs into 4/4 Dragons. Sarkhan's Whelp triggers to take the opponent to 14.
2. Use Sarkhan, Fireblood's -7 ability to create four 5/5 Dragons. But guess what, he's not a Planeswalker anymore thanks to the other Sarkhan's ability, so even though he has no loyalty remaining, he doesn't die! (Well, yet.) For the same reason, the ability also doesn't trigger Sarkhan's Whelp, though.
3. Use Vraska's -3 to destroy Sarkhan's Whelp. Make a treasure.
4. Cast Heroic Reinforcements to make two Soldiers, give everything haste, and buff the team.
5. Attack with all! You've got four 6/6 Dragons, four 5/5 Dragons, and two 2/2 Soldiers. Your opponent can block seven flying creatures, so 5 + 5 + 2 + 2 will get through for a lethal 14.
