    This is more of a tip than a guide but it has worked for me and I'm not very good at the game.

    You can retry the daily challenge an unlimited number of times within the 24 hour period. What I did was find a person on the daily high score that had 50,000+ points and review their run details. I took note of the artifacts and cards/upgrades they had then tried to replicate the run myself.

    Since the run is always generated exactly the same every time you restart it you can easily learn from your mistakes and retry it. If your battles don't go well just quit to main menu and then resume. The battle will restart and cards will be drawn in the same order as before so it is very predictable and forgiving.

    You will have to enable all trials and not take any damage to get enough points for a 50,000 total.

    Deschain019You can take a little pyre damage, but probably not more than once. You will need to kill at least one flying boss early to make up for the deficit as turns left improve your score.

    On a recent daily, took one pyre hit for 7 on first ring and killed all 3 flying bosses early with 1/3/5 rounds left to relentless phase and scored 51k at the end of the run.

    Fox HuntsFor me, the difference between getting 49,000 and getting over 50,000 was doing a trial. If you're going for this achievement you'll have a good understanding of how difficult each level is. Doing a trial on an a mid tier level gave me a 50% bonus for it which was worth like 3,000.

    WobbloTodays challenge appears to be one of the easier ones to get it. My first run was hopeless as I didn't quite understand how to work around the 4 x instant unit placement on the second floor so I took a look at the 50k runs on the leaderboards and it appeared they were either running some sort of frostbite deck or focus on spell weakness. I went with spell weakness option. Offering Monument was an absolute key unit, give it as much +health as possible and use it to cycle 0 cost spells over and over, combined with Energy Siphon with Double Stack and Holdover.

    With a small deck you can just cycle spell weakness over and over and then hit the bosses on the first turn. I ended up taking loads of Pyre damage on the way, down to 13 health at one point, but the bonuses for killing all 3 main bosses on turn 1 or 2 ended up giving me enough for 54k.

    As of posting you have 20hrs left to get this on the easy daily challenge, if you see this guide in time - do it

    Video is 19mins and can follow every single move to guarantee this achievement. Ideal if this is the last one you need for completion smile

    Will delete this when the daily challenge has changed. Just a heads up while the challenge is still active.

    (Ps it took me 29 mins to complete the run following each step of the video)
