EDIT: 3/13/17 - Entered in new info on obtaining Mythic Cards and Glory cost for bundles in stores.
EDIT: 4/15/17 - Thank you and Credit to Throni360, for letting me know how to get Guild Keys.

This achievement is for upgrading one of your Troops to Level 20.

Only Mythic Class cards can get to Level 20. So go into your Troops menu, select a Mythic Class card, hit Y for the Crafting menu and then use Souls to level up the card to 20. Depending on what level that card already is when you upgrade it will depend on how many Souls you need to spend. But upgrading a Level 1 card to a Level 20 card will require you to spend about 7000 Souls.

Now leveling up the card is the easy part. Getting a Mythic Class card is the hard part and will probably take quite a bit of time grinding. As far as I know, there are 8 Mythic Class cards in the game (but I have no idea how to get them and you can see them in the Troops menu if you use the filters to Show All cards and then sort by Rarity), so getting one of them and leveling the card is all you would need to do. However, they are hard to get, so most likely you will have to Ascend a lower class card to the Mythic class.

In order to get one of the 8 cards that are already Mythic Class you will need to open chests, certain chest types have a chance to give you a Mythic Class card. They are

-Glory Chests - using either Glory or Glory Keys (there is a very low chance to get one in these chests, I do not know the chance percentage)
-Gem Chests - using either Gems or Gem Keys (according to the menu there is much higher chance to get them in these chests, currently when looking at the this chest Menu, it says there is 10x chance for a Mythic Class card, but it doesn't say what percentage its multiplying by 10x)
-VIP Chests - this requires you to spend real money in the Shop to earn VIP Points and you need enough VIP points to get to Rank 5, then you need to use VIP Keys or possibly the VIP points to open the chests (I do not know, as I have never spent real money on this game, if anyone could clarify it would be appreciated, currently the only pack I see in the store that includes VIP Keys is the Typhoon of Keys pack for $100)
-Guild Chests - using Guild Seals (or by spending real money on Guild Keys through the Guild Menu). In order to get a chance for a Mythic Class card to appear in the Guild Chests, your guild will need a minimum of 10,000 seals earned in a week (if your guild has less than this, there is no chance to get one if you open the chests), the chance to get one becomes higher if your guild earns 20,000 and then 40,000 seals in a single week. Remember your total seals for the guild earned, resets each week. And it seems like a single person can only contribute a max of 1,500 seals a week (don't know if someone can confirm this, I am just going off the guild seal menu). So to get to 40,000 seals in a week, you would need at least 28 people in the guild all earning the max amount to give you the highest chance.

The card classes are:

Common - card is white in color
Rare - card is green in color
Ultra Rare - card is blue in color
Epic - card is purple in color
Legendary - card is orange/gold in color
Mythic - card is teal in color (I think its supposed to be crystal, but it looks like teal)

In order to Ascend a card from 1 class to another you need multiple copies of the card. For the first time ascending, you need 5 extra copies (so 6 copies in total) as you will sacrifice 5 to upgrade the 6th to ascend it to a higher class.

The achievement is easiest to obtain if you ascend a Legendary class card to Mythic as you will only need 5 extra copies of that card.

But if you are starting with a much lower class of card the copies you need will double each time. So to upgrade a Common card (the lowest class), you will need to Ascend it 5 times, which will require you to have a total of 190 extra copies of the card.

As when ascending a card it takes:

5 extra copies for the first time
10 extra copies for the second time
25 extra copies for the third time
50 extra copies for the fourth time
100 extra copies for the fifth time

Which is why it is easier to upgrade a Legendary as you will only need 5 extra or an Epic as you will only need 15 extra. Once you do Ascend a card to Mythic you will unlock:

There is no easy way to get extra copies of a certain card but earning gold and completing guild tasks to get keys to open chests will get you cards (but what you get is random). Though the higher the Key/Chest rank the more likely you will get higher class cards.

But the easiest way (while not the quickest way and is a bit of a grind) is to save up Glory. Glory like keys can be obtained from Daily Tributes, Log-In bonus (which is higher based on your PvP rank), from PvP, from using keys on chests, from Guild Tasks, Treasure Hunt mini game, and well almost everything you do (though the amount will vary that you get).

Then go into the the shop and look under the Glory Rewards tabs. Each week there are 2 Event Chests that you can buy with Glory for 250 Glory a piece. Depending on the event or what card the developers decide to put in there, occasionally there is a card in 1 of the 2 that is either a Epic or Legendary Class, if its an Epic Class card, it then costs you 350 Glory for each one (if its a Legendary Class, it may cost 350, but more than likely it will be 450 Glory each), but most of the time its a Rare or Ultra Rare class card.

If its an Ultra Rare Class card (blue) there is normally 1 in the pack (sometimes 2) but you'd have to buy 40 or 41 of these packs as you need 40 extra copies of the card (so if you don't have any of the card already you need to buy 41), as you need to ascend the card 3 times. So you would need to save up a minimum 10,000 glory and then spend it all on the packs. Now there are 2 Event Keys in these packs, which have a chance of giving you another copy of the cards in those packs. So you may be able to save yourself from spending 10,000 Glory. If its an Epic Class in these bundles and you don't already have a copy, you will need to buy a total of 16 of them for 5,600 Glory. But its best to have the total amount of Glory needed in case the Event Keys don't give you extras.

Or if you don't mind spending actual money, under the Weekly Event Tab in the Shop, normally one of the $30+ bundles has a Troop card in it that gives you multiples of it, but its normally an Epic card. So you'd need to buy the bundle at least 3-4 times, unless you already had 1 or more the card.

If you have any questions, comments, or info to make this easier please let me know and I will modify the guide as needed.
