Today's puzzle is going to involve Mental Magic, a fun, memory-testing variant of magic. All of magic's usual rules apply, but with the following variations
- Any card in your hand may be played face down as a land that taps for any color of mana. This land is treated as basic with no subtypes. (Usual land-per-turn rule applies)
- Any card may be played as any other nonland MtG card as long as
- that card does not have the same name
- that card has the exact same mana cost (note: this includes color symbols, hybrid mana, X-cost, etc.) so e.g. Wild Guess can be cast as Eidolon of the Great Revel, but not as Rolling Thunder and Thoughtseize can be cast as Gravecrawler, but not as Deathrite Shaman.
- The same spell may not be cast more than once in a game
Some additional house rules for simplicity:
- Search effects are banned. This includes cards like Entomb and also cards where only part of the effect involves searching e.g. Sever the Bloodline
- Cards in hand/library have no name, only their printed (sub)types and costs so no exiling an Elvish Spirit Guide or cycling Street Wraith
- We'll be playing a Legacy game of Mental Magic, meaning that the Legacy banned list and rules should be observed.
It's turn 1 and you're on the play. Let's assume that (magically) your opponent has no cards in hand. Win this turn with the rules given above and the hand and library below. Both boards and graveyards are empty. If your require interaction with your opponent's library (remember that searching is banned) you may assume the card type(s) required are there. Your solution must be a guaranteed win, not involving your opponent self-destructing (e.g. they choose 20 on a Choice of Damanations) or random chance (you Hymn to Tourach yourself and hit the right 2 cards). If multiple solutions are achieved, the one that does the most damage wins.

EDIT: There's been a lot of confusion surrounding the not-very-well-defined parameters I provided. In an attempt to clarify this, I've posted what I believe to be a more clear, more well-defined version here
