More Challenges for Magic 2014 in the latest expansion (Scroll to the bottom of the Solution for the videos of these challenges):

Challenge 1: Mountain Assault

1. Cast Blood Moon to make their lands near the Oblivion Ring mountains.
2. Skip to combat and attack with Goblin Mountaineer Don't press Y yet, Read this next bit first!

When you press Y to attack you will have one opportunity for this.
One bar will fully complete to say that they cannot block your Goblin Mountaineer when you attack and then the second is the damage assign.
Stop Timer during the second one.

3. Cast Cythoshape
4. Target your Goblin Mountaineer then target your opponents creature card, Kird Ape.

Challenge Complete.

Explaination: Your Goblin Mountaineer avoided the combat with his Mountain Walk ability so it avoided the opponents blocking ability because they controlled a Mountain due to Blood Moon making it a mountain.

Challenge 2: Beat The Angel

1. Cast Demolish on any of the opponents lands.
2. Cast Vindicate on any of the opponents lands.
3. Attack with both creatures.
4. Frost Titan's ability will tell you to tap a permanent. choose the remaining land of your opponent (whatever colour it is)
5. You will win on the opponents upkeep because of the ability on Platinum Angel triggering and the AI having no land to pay the cost.

Challenge Complete.

Explaination: Your card called Magus of the Tabernacle gives all creatures this ability "All Creatures have "At the beginning of your upkeep, sacrifice this creature unless you pay (1)." so when you destroy the AI's land and use Frost Titan's ability to tap the remaining land for two of your opponents turns, he cannot pay the cost and sacrifices his angel, thus losing the game.

Challenge 3: Unleash the Beast

1. Cast Earthquake and pay 2 of the X value.
2. Skip to combat and attack with Coalhauler Swine.
3. Pause time when his last creature blocks Coalhauler.
4. Cast Twisted Image on the opponents Nemesis of Reason.
5. Continue combat and the AI will be on 7 life and you have 8 and you'll win, you will survive on 1 life whereas your opponent will lose.

Challenge Complete.

Explaination: You switched Nemesis of Reasons power and toughness because he is usually a 3/7 creature but because of Earthquake he is now 3/5 taking 2 damage and then switching his power and toughness around he will be on 7/1 because the creature took damage. You will deal 7 damage with Coalhauler's trample to his 14 life (after Earthquake) and he will be on 7 and Nemesis dealt 7 damage to Coalhauler so the AI will die due to Coalhauler's ability.

Challenge 4: Riddle of Steel

All Credit goes to Snowed for finding the best way to do this:

1. Cast Stoneforge Mystic, get Golem Skin Gauntlets.
2. Cast all Equipment in hand (Gauntlets x2, Kite Shield, Argentum Armor)
3. Cast Puresteel Paladin
4. Equip everything to Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer
5. Attack with Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer and Stonehewer Giant
6. After blocking is assigned, press X and use Stonehewer Giant's ability to attach Loxodon's Warhammer to the blocked creature.

Congrats, you just did more than enough damage.

Challenge 5: Spellstorm

Here is the link posted in the comments posted by MemoriesOfFinal for the last challenge.

That last one is very complicated prepare for a long challenge with this one. For a reference of land just in case you forget while doing this, there is:

4 Mountains, 10 Swamp and 5 Islands on the field.

Sorry for the mass of delays, I hadn't realised someone had already got something on the net. You will now have guides for all your challenges.

Good Luck and Happy Hunting [:
