    Introduction andInstructions.
    Hey there, if you found this guide, it is because you're stuck on a
    challenge, and are about to pull your hair out as you tried just
    about every possible combination there is to try and complete
    it (or just wanna beat all challenges without much effort for
    the trophy/achievement and/or just don't wanna put much effort
    into completing the challenge yourself, which i sometimes do lol.)
    This is my first guide i've made, and may not be tidy and look
    in the best of shape, but it'll still help you complete the Challenges.
    There's really no hard tricks or anything to do, just follow the instructions
    step by step. The things you need to do will be broken down by steps, which
    will make it alot easier for you to follow. if there is a * before a step
    number, it means that you will have to stop the clock/timer to prevent the 
    game moving forward and spell effects to take place and move the next phase,
    it will also be in all caps "STOP THE TIMER" to further tell you to do so.
    To easily skip to a Challenge, use the Ctrl+F for the PC to open the Word
    find and copy and paste the # code below within the parentheses.
    In addition to the text guide, I have also added youtube links for each
    challenge if you would like a video rather than text walkthrough. 
    Hope this Guide helps, and have fun playing Magic!
