The other solutions are good but I wanted to share my boosting method for this Achievement.

First I wanted to state the fact that this achievement can be boosted in private matches with another gamer, these wins do count toward your total of 100. To access private matches go to Multiplayer, press the Y button over the Two player icon to change the setting from public to private. Press A to create your own lobby, and then invite the player you wish to boost with.

(side note when boosting this March 10th when we invited from a party we couldn't match up. Add your boosting partner as a friend, then press LT to invite your boosting partner into a game from your friends list. Inviting this way matched us up quickly every time.)

To make this method work and go quickly you want to change your Preferences to TURN OFF Combat Animation, and change your Advanced Settings to TURN OFF Simplified Targeting, Hold Priority, and Order Blockers Automatically. Both Players need to change these settings as it is CRUCIAL to this strategy.

(Turning off combat animation resolves attacks quicker. You will need to be able to cast spell against yourself so Simplified Targeting has to be off, Hold priority is my personal preference but it will save you from pressing the continue button at times, and if you accidentally cast a creature you don't want to block your partner)

Now on to the deck you and your partner should be using. We used a Mono Red deck as this is a quick assault deck. The deck I used had a nice balance of low level monster's with good effects, Enchantments and instant damage spells. The deck is listed below, I listed the number used and the area it can be found in.

Foundry Street Denizen X4 (Ravnica)
Satyr Hoplite X4 (Theros)
Furor of the Bitten X4 (Innistrad)
Shock X4 (Zendikar)
Skullcrack X3 (Battle Booster)
Kiln Fiend X4 (Zendikar)
Krenko's Command X4 (Ravnica)
Guttersnipe X3 (Ravnica)
Regathan Firecat X2 (Shandalar)
Lightning Talons X4 (Ravnica)
Bolt Of Keranos X2 (Theros)
Mountains X22

I know some people might not have 3 Skullcrack cards from the battle booster packs yet if not then sub in 3 Coordinated Assualt cards. The idea is replacing an instant for another instant for creature effect's. When you do pick them up from the battler booster packs I would switch them out.

Now if it is your turn to win you want to put monster card's on the board and try to use there card effects for more power. Some examples would be equip Satyr Hoplite for more power with an equipment card such as Furor of the bitten. This will give him one more attack than any other monster. Another strategy is summon your Kiln Fiend and hold on to your instant damage cards or sorcery cards (Spark, Skullcrack, Bolt of Keranos, or Krenko's Command) Each card will give Kiln Fiend +3 attack. You can also use Guttersnipe with the instant and sorcery cards to do +2 health damage per card. Keep in mind All games will be over in 3-5 turn so plan your strategies around that window.

If you are losing this round help your partner win quicker with this deck by using damage spells against Yourself to lower your health or use your equipment card to equip his monster's . Helping your partner win is a big part of winning games quickly and getting more wins in the session time. Always add land to the board if you have it but never waste time summoning creatures. Summoning creatures will slow down the game asking you if you want to block adding in another step. If you cannot do damage to yourself or equip your partner then pass your turn by pressing the Y button. A good starting hand would have at least two cards that can either damage yourself or equip. If you do not have at least two in the beginning of the game redraw till you do. I drew down two a hand of 4 and had a better support hand then when I had seven cards.

With this method I was able to win 20 matches in a two hour boosting session for me and my partner, we were rotating wins one a piece. So we were able to fit 40 matches in 2 hours. That is winning a match every 3 minutes including load times. This method we won about 20% of matches in the third round, 75% of matches in the fourth round, and 5% of matches in the fifth round. We rarely went to the fifth round of a game, only time we did was if both of us had bad starting hands. We never went to the sixth round of a match so I feel this boosting method is quick and efficient. I hope this will help more people unlock this achievement :)

Please leave any questions, comments, or concerns in the comments and I will get back with you as soon as possible.
