Magic: The Puzzling

Posted in Feature on April 18, 2002

By Mark Rosewater, Puzzle Guru


The goal of this puzzle is simple. Below are five creatures and 11 creature enchantments. Put the creature enchantments on the creatures so that you create five creatures from the Standard environment (from Invasion, Planeshift, Apocalypse, Odyssey, Torment and Seventh Edition). To qualify, the creature needs to be the same color, have the same power and toughness and all the same abilities, with no extra ones, as its equivalent. All creature enchantments need to be used and every creature needs at least one enchantment.

Each card image and name below is "clickable" in case you don't know what the card is.

I’m sure you won’t need the answer but if you do, check Monday's Magic Arcana.

Have fun!
