No, I have not gone soft and decided to make these puzzles easy. Number 5 was deliberately designed to simply illustrate a point, so we are now back to normal with a more difficult set up.

The Coral Elves have just attacked the Lava Elves and the latter have saved. The Cantrips were used to generate Hailstorms (as shown).

The question is, how many damage, if any, do the Lava Elves take?

For those who do not follow my battles, I always use spell cards by facing them towards to caster so that I know when the effects expire. This is why the Ash Storms appear upside-down. It is not to confuse.
