-Set up a custom duel with the basic blue deck (Thoughts of Wind) against Garruk (green)
-check if you are the starting player, if not restart
-when you are starting player keep skipping cards until you have a 'Boomerang' and two land (blue>island)
(restart game if your cards are not lucky and try it again, you need at least 1 land and 1 boomerang)
-play your land
-let the enemy play his land
-play your land
-use Boomerang
Achievement will pop right away!

You can make it faster by going to advanced options and let yourself start with 9 cards. The trick is to let the enemy have just one permanent, his first land. So if you don't start he will have two lands by the time you can play your boormerang and you will be screwed

good luck!
Beez 808Boomerang requires 2 islands to cast.
Also, the basic blue deck is Thoughts of Wind.

lord verhno thanks, I really enjoyed this game. I love to play with 'Eyes of Shadow' and defeat the enemy with unblockable fear units

MAOraNzaThumbs up for this solution. It helps to put 23 cards on the sideboard 'cause there are only two Boomerang in the deck.

JMJimmyIt should be noted that you need to stop the timer after playing your second land.

Re last comment: No you don't. Did this drunk & half understanding the instructions while grooving to the music of the game. Once you lay the 2nd land you can just play the spell as you would any card. Got it first try, second shuffle.

Tenatius BGarruk will sometimes cast Wall of wood on his first turn which is irritating. However you can get around this with an Unsummon as well as the boomerang. After Wall of Wood comes into play, Unsummon it, then on your second turn drop an Island and cast Boomerang on his Forrest. This is what I ended up having to do, because there wasn't a time when I played first with the requisite cards where Garruk didn't cast Wall of Wood. Also as previously mentioned it helps a lot to remove most of your sideboard cards to increase your odds of getting all the cards you need.
