In that case, here is what I got.

[details=Summary]Get 10 gold (10)
Play Zane (8)
Play Chaos Mirror, swapping Garth and Cadet’s power. Cadet becomes a 4/2 after Suits (6)
Calypso sidelines Voidblocker.
Cadet trades with Garth, Zane goes to level 3.
Nullcraft takes out River, Zane goes to level 5.
Pay 1 gold to max Zane, using his trigger to move the Scavenger Skeleton to Technician and taking it out. Draw Surprise Attack from Zane’s ability (5).
Play Surprise Attack. (0)
Mox takes out Lookout Skeleton.
Zane and sharks deal a lethal 10 to the base.[/details]

Edit: funny enough, @feathers and I have 1 difference that doesn’t change the outcome at all, but his leaves a better board behind.

@Tune_In
how did your null craft attack twice?[/details]

Second attack was suppose to be Mox, must have made the mistake when I typed it out for my second post.
