First off - I highly recommend trying this out on your own first. I found the challenges to be easier than in previous games (especially the first 7 or so). You'll feel awesome when you figure some of these out, usually just reading all the cards in play will give you the tip you need to win.

With that out of the way, here are my step by step instructions on how to beat each challenge. If you are experienced at Magic you can likely ignore the "Notes" sections, but I included them to help new players or clarify exactly how or why to do certain actions.

Command the Dead:
1. Cast Unnatural Predation on your Grave Titan.
2. Attack with all creatures

Gird for War:
1. Cast Golem-Skin Gauntlets
2. Equip Golem-Skin Gauntlets onto any Silvercoat Lion
3. Cast Trusty Machete
4. Equip Trusty Machete onto the same Silvercoat Lion as step 2
5. Cast O-Naginata
6. Equip O-Naginata onto the same Silvercoat Lion as step 2
Note: the same Silvercoat Lion should now have all 3 equips on it
7. Attack with all creatures

Battle Tactics:
1. Attack with all creatures
2. Once blockers are declared, cast Might of Oaks on the unblocked creature
Note: to do this you will have to hit "X" to stop time after blockers are declared

Blood is Life:
Note: you start this challenge being attacked for a change
1. Assign one blocker to each creatures (doesn't matter which)
Note: you survive this because of the Lifelink ability on both blockers
2. Attack with your remaining flying creature

Defeat the Troll:
1. Cast Doom Blade on Cudgel Troll
Note: the Cudgel Troll will survive, but will become tapped while regenerating
2. Attack with your only creature

Sliver Strike Team:
1. Cast Predatory Sliver
2. Cast Bonescythe Sliver
3. Attack with all creatures
Note: depending on your settings, you may get prompted to choose which order to do damage to a group of blockers - it doesn't matter what you choose

Go Berserk:
1. Advance to the attack phase, wait for enemy to tap some creatures
2. Attack with any one or two (but not more) untapped creature(s)
Note: this is the easy solution to advance, but will not get the Heavy Hitter achievement. There is a great solution posted here:

Near Death:
Note: once again this starts with you under attack, and if you look closely at your enchantment you will know the basics of what you need to do to win this one
1. Assign all 3 blockers to the Primordial Hydra
2. After that, buff Basandra, Battle Seraph twice (+2/+0 total) using any mana
Note: you will have to hit "X" to stop time to perfrom this buff

Get a Grip:
1. Cast Pyroclasm
2. Cast Stave Off on your Vulshok Refugee (choose White)
3. Attack with your Vulshock Refugee
Note: protection from a color means creatures of that color can't even try to block you!

Sliver Infiltration
Note: this one took me quite a few tries!
1. Cast both Virulent Slivers
2. Cast Crib Swap on the enemy Darksteel Gargoyle
3. Cast Brainstorm, choosing to remove Blightsteel Colossus and Tidal Surge
4. Activate the Quicksilver Amulet, choosing Protean Hulk
5. Activate the top ability on Culling Dais, choosing Protean Hulk
6. When presented with all your creatures, choose Predator Dragon and nothing else
Note: you can bring in your 0 casting cost creatures, but they won't matter as they can't be devoured since they come in at the same time as your dragon
7. Devour the 2 Virulent Slivers when the Predator Dragon comes into play
8. Attack with all
