The easiest way to get these situational achievements is to create a deck with spells of one color and lands of another color to play against. This deck will simply play land and nothing else as it won't be able to play any spells. Note that 60 card decks can have no more than 30 lands (no fewer than 30 non-lands) otherwise they cannot be used.

Hedron Crab is a blue uncommon creature fron Zendikar:

If you don't have it in your collection, then you'll need to play Explore Nodes (random battles) on Zendikar to win booster packs which may contain it.

Single Player --> Campaign --> Zendikar --> Explore Zendikar

Once you have at least one Hedron Crab, you can easily get this achievement. Just build a custom deck with Hedron Crab and pretty much anything else you want to use. I suggest about 35 creatures and the rest land.

In the main menu, go to Single Player, choose Practice Duel, then Two Player. Change your opponents deck to the one you already created with the wrong lands so they cannot cast anything.

You may have to restart a few times until you have Hedron Crab in your opening hand (you can mulligan once or twice before restarting), but you want to do this so you don't have to draw through your whole deck to find it. Then simply play Hedron Crab and each time you play a land, force your opponent to put three cards into their graveyard from their library. Do this seven times and the achievement will pop.

You might as well run them out of cards to defeat your opponent without then having lost any life to also pop the Ingenuity achievement:

And if you loaded up your deck with a bunch of creatures, you can also either Hedron Crab yourself and/or hold cards until you are forced to discard until you get 20 or more creatures in your own graveyard. Then run your opponent out of cards to also pop the Grateful Dead achievement:
