    I used Charmbreaker Devils (red) (Innistrad) and a lot of red instants like Shock and Coordinated Assault. Once you have Devils out, every upkeep it will randomly put a sorcery card back into your hand.

    And you could also do another achievement, Hat Trick, as red has a lot of aura cards. You can use the same card multiple times on the same creature.

    Magic 2015 - Duels of the PlaneswalkersFly My PrettiesThe Fly My Pretties achievement in Magic 2015 - Duels of the Planeswalkers worth 47 pointsHave ten or more Thopter artifact creature tokens on the battlefield under your control

    Listed after the cards is where you will get them, if you don't have all the cards yet you can substitute the cards that aren't bold for other cards you might see relevant.

    3 Hedron Crab (Zendikar)
    4 Etherium Sculptor (Alara)
    2 Sharding Sphinx (Alara)

    2 Creepy Doll (Innistrad)

    4 Courier's Capsule (Alara)
    1 Bident of Thassa (Theros)
    2 Pyxis of Pandemonium (Theros)
    3 Elixir of Immortality (Innistrad)
    4 Traveler's Amulet (Theros)
    1 Hall of Triumph (Battle Booster)
    3 Darksteel Ingot (Battle Booster)
    3 Meteorite (Shandalar)

    4 Think Twice (Battle Booster)

    24 Island

    In your starting hand you do want Sharding Sphinx and if you're lucky also Etherium Sculptor. Start playing these and don't attack until you have the Sphinx on the Battlefield.
    When you Have Sharding Sphinx on the battlefield attack with any other creature, after you have gotten your first Thopter Token only attack with 1 Thopter Token every turn after this turn. After a while you will get the Fly My Pretties achievement, stop attacking when you get that.

    While you only attack with the one thopter you are going to draw cards and play Think Twice whenever you can, Think Twice has flashback which means you can play it 2 times, once from your hand and once from your graveyard. When you have played it 5 times you will get the Not Again achievement.

    Play any Etherium Sculptor when you get them, each copy you have on the battlefield reduces the cost of all your artifacts by 1, after 1 or 2 you should be able to cast an artifact for free which should net you the Five Creature Discount. When you have all 4 on the battlefield you should easily be able to play 5 artifacts or other spells the same turn which will get you the Spellstorm achievement.

    When you get a Hedron Crab play it and start milling your opponent, when you have put twenty cards into your opponents graveyard you will get the Pincer Movement achievement. Stop playing lands when you get the achievement so you don't win by your opponent running out of cards to draw.

    When you have all the above achievements you are almost done, just attack with all your flying creatures to get the Death From Above by dealing 20 damage to the opponent with flying creatures.

    If you have any questions about any of these steps feel free to ask in the comments so i can improve the solution.

    You can easily achieve this with a blue deck with simplified targeting turned off from the Help and Options menu. Use a combination of Voidsnare, Quickling, Artful Dodge, and Archeomamcer to replay cheap creatures, instants, and sorceries. Just be sure to add 4 of whichever cards you plan on using.

    Example: I achieved this with the Cloudfin Raptor. I had two on the field, played a Quickling and returned one to my hand. Next turn, I played the Raptor again. I then used Voidsnare on it to return it to my hand. I then used Archeomancer to return voidsnare to my hand to do it all over again, all on the same turn. If you have the mana to replay the Raptor, you'd even manage the Spellstorm achievement pretty easily. I had already that one though. ;)
