  1. Cast Ancient Animus targeting Dragon Egg and any opposing creature. The Egg dies, giving Mausoleum Harpy a +1/+1 counter. It makes a Dragon token, but it doesn’t get riot as Rhythm of the Wild only applies to nontoken creatures. Piston-Fist Cyclops can now attack as you’ve cast an instant or sorcery.
  2. Cast Growth-Chamber Guardian. Using the two riot triggers, use at least one of them to give it haste. Search up another one using its ETB ability.
  3. Repeat step 2.
  4. Attack with two Growth-Chamber Guardians and Piston-Fist Cyclops. Because all blockers have first strike, any of your blocked creatures will die before your unblocked Harpy deals damage, and it will therefore get three more +1/+1 counters before dealing a lethal 7 damage. Kapow!
