What’s the Play? Modern Death’s Shadow

It’s time for another What’s the Play? this time involving Death’s Shadow Aggro in Modern. It’s always an interesting deck for these exercises, and this particular scenario is a good one. It came up for Julien during an MTGO PTQ in a post-board game against Dredge.

Note that there is a Vengeful Pharaoh in the opponent’s graveyard, as that makes this an interesting puzzle indeed.
