    What I have found to be the best card to unlock this achievement is 'Yang Zing Unleashed' (available from the Jack Atlas booster pack). This forces all monsters who can attack, to attack.

    Deck recipe I used to get this very easily, especially against some of the original, Yu-Gi-Oh! series battles:

    3 x Metal Reflect Slime (Bakura booster - trap card with 3,000 base DEF)
    3 x Marshmallow (Yu-Gi booster - cannot be destroyed by battle. So handy. Low defence, but you will boost with the below magic cards)
    3 x Stone Statue of the Aztecs (Quinton booster - not required as you'll be dishing out so much damage forcing them to attack and boosting defence. Can easily replace with any monster with decent DEF)
    3 x Chorus or Sanctuary (Mai booster - boosts defence by 500)
    3 x Golden Sarcophagus (Yu-Gi booster - helps pull Yang Zing Unleashed)
    3 x Yang Zing Unleashed (Jack Atlas booster)
    3 x Mage Power (Yu-Gi booster - equipped monster gains 500 attack and defence for each spell/trap card you control. SO good for boosting DEF)
    3 x Horn of the Unicorn (Yu-Gi booster - equipped monster gains 700 attack and defence)
    3 x Solitary Sword of Poison (Grandpa Muto booster - original attack and defence of the monster is doubled during damage calculation)

    Then I just fleshed the deck out with cards to wipe the enemy if they were getting a bit too OP with what they were summoning/placing + to help me draw the various cards easier.

    3 x Pot of Greed (Bakura booster)
    3 x Graceful Charity (Grandpa Muto booster)
    3 x Raigeki (Grandpa Muto booster)
    3 x Mirror Force (Seto Kaiba booster)
    3 x Dust Tornado (Grandpa Muto booster)

    Hopefully this helps someone get this easily. I'd played through most of the campaign and had been getting a lot of the original series, booster packs for other builds so was a very easy deck to put together. You can get the full 8k life points (and a lot more if you're lucky) from just one duel.

    MaliiciousThe card is called marshmallon not marshmallow. As well if chorus of sanctuary not or. In a game where card names are super important you should have double checked the spelling before posting.

    Hero Of CourageNee naw, nee naw, spelling police.

    Perhaps you should be more constructive with your criticism as it comes across rude.

    And if you are going to pick apart someone's guide for spelling, you should make sure your own comment is grammatically sound.

    Second sentence: As well if chorus of sanctuary not or.
    That should say: As well, (yes you missed a comma) IT's chorus of sanctuary not or.

    Third sentence: In a game where card names are super important, ( yes another missed comma).

    Feel free to edit your comment.

    @Zyphorion. Thanks, I managed to get 20k damage in three games using the 3 Yang Zing unleashed with the Exodia deck and 3 Stone Statue of the Aztec cards. +1 from me. (I wonder who down voted this solution.........)

    Reflective damage is damage dealt to your opponent from your defense monster having higher defense than the attacking monster. This is actually quite a grind as playing almost entirely defensive is never a great strategy until you unlock the right cards. So, I recommend dueling Seeker until you unlock a playset of "Stone Statue of the Aztecs", which is a 2000 defense monster that has an effect that doubles the damage taken by the opponent when they attack it. Simply add all 3 to your deck, and progress naturally. You opponent will very unlikely have something over 2000 in the first few turns, so if you see Stone Statue early, set it and let the damage accrue over time.

    ThronedFiddle75It also counts damage your opponent takes when they attack an Attack Position monster, although they don't do it often. D. D. Warrior is a good example of when an opponent will do this.
