How to unlock the Dragon Slayer achievement

  • 18 2 4
    Complete the DLC Single Player Campaign, Duel the Dragon.
    Here are a few tips for each opponent:

    -Sarkhan Vol's Cries of Rage deck is easily put down with Ears of the Elves. Pump your elves, play an Elvish Champion, and forest walk him.

    -Jace Beleren's Mind of Void deck can be beaten with the Eyes of Shadow deck fairly easily. Terror his creatures and make him discard his hand and you'll control the game.

    -Nicol Bolas can be defeated with the Mind of Void deck. Simply use Mind Erosions and Traumatizes until he runs out of cards.
    You have many cards to help you run through him. Cancel, Dream Fracture, Condemn, and Persuade your way through his army until he drives his library into the grave.

    I was able to defeat Nicol Bolas my first try without unlocking any extra cards for Mind of Void.

    GWebb77Has this happened to anyone else?
    I got the DLC the first day it came out and got this and the 75 Power achievement in the same day and it popped up saying I got the achievement but it did not show up towards my total AP and the MTG score still showed 200/200 but now it shows 200/250 and it still doesn't register me having these 2 achievements although when I click on MTG it shows me having them? I best Nicol again just to see but it doesnt give me the acheivement again???

    SANDROCKLQEars of the Elves doesn't work that well against Sarkhan Vol. Vol has Elves in his deck, so if you play Elvish Champion, they'll have forestwalk as well. I can see it working if you play it right before you attack with the final blow (assuming he doesn't have a counter of some kind). I had the pre-expansion cards(17 or so) unlocked so that may have something to do with why I had trouble..

    If you've got Wings of Light unlocked through 17 cards, I recommend that instead. Vol has very few ways to deal with flying. I was able to use Wings of Light and steamroll until Bolas. Mind of Void does work well on Bolas.

    Simply run through the Duel of Dragon Campaign using a deck you feel comfortable with. I used the mono-green deck and had no problems handling the new decks. The achievement pops once you defeat Nicol Bolas in the final battle.
