    Hey Guys!
    You will want to create a blue only deck. However, only include cards with lower power and defenders. The idea is that you will fight against an opponent with the same deck by dueling Cruel Reflection in Shandalar. Try to get Hedron Crab in your starting hand. Make sure you do not attack your opponent. Just build up a defense to buy you time for Hedron Crab to do its work. Doing will allow you get Hedron Crab out without much interruption. Keep playing lands when Hedron Crab is on the field and 3 cards will be discarded per Hedron Crab you have on the field. Continue to do this to earn the 'Pincer Movement' achievement. Keep doing this to reduce your opponent's library to 0. When your opponent draws with no cards in the library you will also net the ' Ingenuity' achievement.

    Deck Listing:
    Quicken x 1
    Hedron Crab x 1
    Kraken Hatchling x 3
    Void Snare x 2
    Military Intelligence x 2
    Marititme Guard x 2
    Doorkeeper x 2
    Ior Ruin Expedition x 3
    Voyage's End x 2
    Negate x 3
    Guard Gomazoa x 1
    Dissolve x 3
    Hysterical Blindness x 1
    Archaeomancer x 3
    Inspiration x 3
    Thassa's Bounty x 3
    Darksteel Ingot x 1

    The rest are land cards (Islands)
    I included a video of my duel.

    I found a very simple solution for most of these achievements and I have confirmed it works for two so far. Simply create a deck that has lands of one color and spells of a completely different color. Then go to Single Player, Practice Duel and just choose Two Player. Give your opponent the useless deck you just made and start the match! They will just draw lands and not be able to play anything and you can complete whatever achievement you're going for, so easy!

    NOTE: You cannot create a deck of just lands, must be a mix of lands and spells and must be at least a 60 card deck per MTG rules.
