Best Solution:
You can get a card called Primordial Hydra in Sealed. If you do, this is the best solution. Otherwise, the normal solution is below (and it is still reasonably fast and certainly faster than any other method).

Keep drawing a new hand until you have Primordial Hydra. You want to get this out as fast as possible, and then cause a stalemate. Primordial Hydra's strength will double every turn, quickly leading to thousands of damage done in one attack. You can wait until you have 8000 power (doesn't take so long, actually), and then attack and get the achievement all at once.

You'll also unlock the achievement for getting over 10 tokens on one creature!

Normal Solution:
I can 100% confirm you can get this achievement by farming the 7th challenge, Go Berserk. I'd save this achievement for last. Some people unlock it during normal gameplay.

Other solutions have you dealing massive amounts of damage in one game. While viable, if you've saved this achievement for last, you'll likely spend only 10 minutes at most doing this while setting it up with the other decks takes quite a lot of time. This is faster.

Doing the challenge correctly will earn you 250 damage per completion and only takes a minute or two (Credit Snapdragon for 250 damage instead of 210).

To complete "Go Berserk":

1. Play Forest

2. Play Quirion Ranger

3. Play Moonbridge Troll

4. Play Khalni Hydra

5. Play Instill Energy on Troll

6. Press Y to continue

7. AI will tap Primalcrux; press X then tap it your Troll

8. AI will tap Troll; ignore this

9. AI will tap Hydra; press X then tap it + Heedless One with Troll

10. AI will tap Baloth Woodcrasher; press X then tap it + Multani with Troll

11. Use Quirion Ranger on Primalcrux and a tapped Forest

12. Use Troll on Elder + Ranger, Elves, and Primalcrux

13. Untap Troll with Instill Energy

14. Berserk!!!

15. Attack. AI DIES.

For the record, you don't need to waste time waiting for the damage to actually show up as negative life. I was a bit worried you might need to, but I am certain it is not required. You can immediately go back to the menu and start again.
