This achievement is unlocked by progressing through story mode and winning against High Priest Sapphius on the Altar of Light Map. The goal of the map is 13,000G.

Below is a map strategy per Culdcept Centrals website. It is a valuable resource for this game and can be found at http://www.culdceptcentral.com

Suggested Strategy: Altar of Light in Story mode is a 1v1 match against High Priest Sapphius (using his Dark Side deck). One thing that should stand out to you immediately is that Sapphius has no offensive items whatsoever, and a massive gaping hole in his defense. Given that Altar of Light is an enormous map, you know what that means... yep, you guessed it: Goblin's Lair and Red Cap. Spam Goblins all over the place, and tuck Borgess and Poseidon away somewhere safe and watch the G roll in (Sapphius can't defeat a 90HP Goblin in battle!) Then, just hold Intrusion and Red Cap and wait for Sapphius to level something up and POW... his land is yours. Of course, you'll want to put Land Protection on it immediately (he has Banishing Ray), or just use Tokebi immediately to convert your new land into G. Sapphius does have one combo you'll want to watch closely, and that is the dreaded Debility+Lunatic Light instant death Doublecast combo. One way around this threat is include some idols in your deck (he'll kill them immediately with Lunatic Light, saving your more valuable lands). Another is just to include lots of Land Protection (which he can't remove short of a very lucky shrine visit). You should win this with ease, at any rate.
I hadn't farmed many cards prior to this fight and didn't have the cards required to use this above Red Cap strategy. I was, however, able to make use of their recommendations for Land Protection and Idols. Sapphius' Lunatic Light can easily wipe out some of your highly leveled land and having him waste it on an idol is great. Land Protection also helped to protect the lands that I heavily invested into.

Overall, I didn't find the map hard and made it through it on the first attempt. I have also seen recommendations across the internet for using a Symbol Deck against the CPU on any map. This would be a deck consisting of only, or close to only, spells that boost your magic and symbols - and then play the map by purchasing as many symbols as possible. I ran this deck a few times since finding one on Culdcept Central and it is true - it works very well against the CPU.

Below, also courtesy of culdceptcentral.com, is a map of the stage.
