As someone who got this achievement I can tell you this will take a lot of time.

First of all; don't waste your time battling a friend in a private match or playing Two Headed Giant. Only versus games count.

Second; don't rely on decks made by the Deck Wizard. All of them are trash and the only positive thing about them is that they give you an idea about how to make an actual good deck.

Third; don't waste your time playing a game you're surely about to lose. When you don't get the right starting hand (even after two redraws) or when you're facing a deck you know it's very hard to beat, just use cn_guide and then cn_start to quit the game.
This will have you're opponent play the AI and still reward him for an online win, while you (after about 10 seconds) can start the game up again and try to find another opponent.

Fourth; there's no ultimate deck. Every deck has it's cons and pros. You can have a winstreak of over 10 and all of a sudden you lose every game you enter.

Finally; look at your deck every now and then to make sure all cards are still the best you can get.

With all that in mind, I'll post my deck which got me the 500 wins (and now improved with a couple of cards from the all updates).

Edit 05-14-2016: As the Perilous Myr has been removed from the game I had to make some changes to the deck.
At the moment I don't have everything unlocked yet (am at 67% for Shadows over Innistrad), so there is a chance this deck could be improved.

Clutch of Currents x3 (Zendikar - common)
Disperse x2 (common)
Claustrophobia x4 (common)
Whirler Rogue x3 (uncommon)
Thopter Spy Network x2 (rare)

Vile Aggregate x2 (Zendikar - uncommon)
Thopter Engineer x3 (uncommon)
Ghirapur Gearcrafter x4 (common)
Exquisite Firecraft x2 (rare)
Pia and Kiran Nalaar x2 (rare)

Multicolored (Gold):
Reclusive Artificer x3 (uncommon)

Chief of the Foundry x3 (uncommon)
Gueardians of Melitis x1 (common)
Pilgim's Eye x1 (Zendikar - uncommon)
Stoneforge Masterwork x2 (Oath - rare)

Island x8
Mountain x8
Sulfur Falls x2 (rare)
Foundry of the Consuls x3 (uncommon)
Looming Spires x1 (Zendikar - common)
Skyline Cascade x1 (Zendikar - common)

This is a low budget deck (only 10 rares), which wins 8 out of 10 matches. And all the cards can be casted with four mana or less.

Keep in mind that cards as Clutch of Currents and Disperse can be played on your own cards (Whirler Rogue, Reclusive Artificer, Pia) or to send that annoying creature with two aura's attached to it back to your opponent's hand.

With the Reclusive Artificer and Exquisite Firecraft you have some direct removal.

Thopter Engineer combined with Chief of the Foundry will overwhelm 95% of your opponents and when you have the Thopter Spy Network on the board it's almost a guaranteed win.
