    Stonekeep, You put an extreme amount of effort and time into all of your articles. I went through the lethal wing myself and by the time I was done with that, I was bored. I am just a collector of the game cards at this point. Thank you for saving me time in obtaining the cardback! Even following the guide takes a considerable amount of time. I wish you well in honing your writings skills while spoonfeeding people like me.

    First of all, thanks for maintaining this website!

    I am really stuck in PUZZLE #4 – LIFESTEEL… Came to this website for clues but that solution does not make sense… =P

    Any help is appreciated.

      What doesn’t make sense about it?

      • Kelly
        August 21, 2018 at 6:52 pm

        It doesn’t lead to a win as is. it gets you to like 26 health. Unless i’m doing something wrong but then directions aren’t clear.

        • Evident
          August 21, 2018 at 7:57 pm

          I just did it myself and it worked fine. I updated the directions slightly so hopefully they make more sense.

          • Kelly
            August 21, 2018 at 9:43 pm

            Ok now it makes more sense.. or for some reason i was reading it wrong previously on the putting the two to the left of one thing not the other.. now i got it.. i think it was just my own stupidity.. maybe.

      • AddenMobbs
        August 21, 2018 at 4:05 pm

        No, it’s not, #1 and #2 are in the wrong order and number 4 doesn’t apply.. still doesn’t lead to a win

      First you sheep, then ixlid. Then bearskin the ixlid and hero power both just for the armor gain and mana efficiency. Next you Battery pack, then umbra, followed by mistress of mixtures, then voodoo doll the sheep, and finally play the plated beetle

      • Nev
        August 21, 2018 at 4:01 pm

        That worked perfectly, GreyGrayson, thanks so much. The sheep first… didn’t occur to me and was the key.
