You can damage yourself while attacking for the win using the Sliver deck (and go for the Hivelord achievement too!) and using the Thorncast Sliver's ability to target yourself. You dont need to upgrade your deck even once (for both achievements!).

I recomend going against the Jungle Rumble Deck because whenever you get the Thorncast Sliver into play, things will get very easy as your creatures gets bigger and bigger and you can kill his creatures very easily using the thorncast sliver ability or on 1x1, even though he gets another one (or three) 1/1 saproling. First strike makes the whole difference here, even though it is not necessary (at all!).

Before "controling" the duel I recomend that you let yourself take some damage to the point you can recover, so you can make things easier if going for this achievement alone.

Also, having big creatures will intimidate your opponent, making him not attack, specially when they have first strike and are around 4/4.

My way of doing this achievement is quite controlable and you can nail it on the first try if you think a little. I got it on first try. You can do it too.

I thought of this way of nailing the achievement while doing Lord of Foriys and accidentally hit my partner. LOL!

Good luck.
