Captain America's challenge, Guardian, tests your understanding of the Block mechanic and how Cap can specifically harness block to deal more damage with some of his abilities. For this challenge, you start with three cards and face off with six different enemies, making it tough to figure out the order for defeating them.

While this challenge has specific uses for the cards you are given, you are free to play around with the order slightly, though it's easy to get to a point where you can't complete it. Below, we have a solution that's guaranteed to work for you.
