The easiest way to do this is to "mill" your opponent. "Milling" is putting cards from a player's library into their graveyard. If a player would draw a card, but has none left in their library, they lose*. I recommend going for
Magic 2015 - Duels of the PlaneswalkersPincer MovementThe Pincer Movement achievement in Magic 2015 - Duels of the Planeswalkers worth 68 pointsPut twenty cards into graveyards with Hedron Crab in a single duel

at the same time as using Hedron Crabs (found on Zendikar) will get you about halfway to winning.

The other key card for winning by milling is Doorkeeper (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Handlers/Image.ashx?multiverseid...), found on Ravnica. It defends you and mills. Other than those two, I recommend a Blue/Black deck with a lot of defense cards.

Be warned that some opponents' decks will damage themselves, preventing you from winning this achievement. You can make this achievement much easier by creating a useless deck to play against.

*Exception: One of the Innistrad Explore deck has a creature named Laboratory manic who changes losses by this method into wins. Don't try this strategy against that deck.

As EyeHunter said, you CAN mill your opponent, but I thought of a rather...peculiar way to obtain this achievement.

If you intend to get all achievements in this game then you MUST complete the campaign, a little more than half-way through the campaign you will fight an opponent named Cruel Reflection, this fight literally pits you against your own deck.

HERE is where it gets interesting!

Since Cruel Reflection uses your exact deck, literally all you have to do is build a deck that is incapable of dealing damage, just fill it with random board control cards. Now take this deck and face Cruel Reflection, all you have to do is mulligan your hand down to just one card then play the match; doing this will force Cruel Reflection to lose as he will run out of cards to draw before you. Using this method will not only allow you to EASILY progress through this section of the campaign, but it will also net you the achievement!

Good luck and god-speed.
