Just wanted to add a solution if you dont want to deal with finding someone to do this with. I did this on my first try heres the deck and also the battle I played.really simple.


Make sure you can deal damage to yourself by clicking off the safety setting in the main menu.

Go to campaign battle "Cult of Flame" (the only card he has is the 3 mana pyromancer guys keep in mind they can deal damage during your turn)

I used the deck "Born of Flame"

I didnt bother laying creatures down but it was just a preferance for me. But of course you have to be flexible play it by ear.

With this deck there are a varity of ways to get this achievment but the 2 cards that really helped me were

"Chandra’s Fury"
Which dealt 1 dmage to all creatures plus damaged my Opponent I believe by 4. (point being it destorys all of his creatures so you dont have to worry about that. -I saved this for near the end)

The second one was

"Flames of the Firebrand"
which allows you to distribute up to 3 points of damage any way you chose. I liked this card because if your sitting at 2 health or even 3 it would allow you to damage yourself to the point of 1hp as well as take care of any extra creature he may have thrown out.

Like I said this is just how I did the achievment. It was the first deck I played and could really think of that you could easily solo this on. good luck and cheers!
