Overview:

This is a long game with some frustrating animation sequences that cannot be skipped, but if you enjoy Magic the Gathering or Monopoly, you may find this to be quite the entertaining game. The multiplayer aspect is quite fun if you can find an opponent, and with the wide variety of maps there is enough to keep you going for quite some time.

Single Player:

The single player achievements are largely for beating the story. Note that you cannot generally save the game in the middle of a battle and still earn achievements when resuming later. This is important in the later part of the game where battles can take 4-6 hours, so plan accordingly.

The starting deck is utter garbage, so your best bet is to play (and probably lose) the first battle so that you get the starting deck, and then move on to multiplayer so that you can earn cards and build a better deck.

Once you have a deck worthy of anything, progress through the story mode. After the final battle, you need to use the "Load" option on the main menu to go back into the story mode and do the rest of the single player achievements. Note that a strong neutral deck can generally win any of the story modes if you don't want to shape your deck each round.

Under no circumstances should you ever select "New Game" once you have started the story mode! This deletes your progress toward multiple achievements!

Specifically, replay Santana Village vs Goligan, Dinar Mountains vs Zajaran, and Grave Canyon vs Zenith. You also need to accumulate 100 victories against AI opponents in story mode, so keep replaying missions (Santana Village is usually the fastest, although it can get boring doing such a simple map over and over.) You also need to collect all the Avatar parts, many of which can be done at the same time as the 100 victories. Many of the avatar parts are easier to do on some of the non-story MP maps. Select "Versus" and don't change anything on the first screen, select a map, and then choose the map and AI cepters you need. The forum has a thread to help with specific avatar parts, which can be found here.

Multiplayer

Most of the multiplayer can be earned with just one partner. Play on Mt Etumer and avoid shrines and temples. Set it to 1 min turns, 10 rounds, and make sure that neither of you score any points (don't capture lands, etc.). This will make it a tie, which counts as a win for both of you. You will both win 12 cards and make progress toward the 200 wins achievement. It takes a while, but this is a great opportunity to work on the card achievements. That should get you almost every card in the game and make the single player experience much easier and more enjoyable. There are 253 creature cards, 78 item cards, and 156 spell cards, for a total of 487.

Along the way (without interrupting the win streaks of course) you will need to play a 3 player match, a 4 player match, and a 2v2 alliance match. Note that you do not need to win, just play them.

Summary:

The hardest part is definitely the avatar pieces, so worry about that one last. You definitely want to have all the cards for that, and a solid understanding of the finer strategies of the game.

All of the above will be earned by progressing through the story mode and cannot be missed. There are so many different deck combinations that you can come up with, so try to find a comfortable playing style, and build the deck accordingly. The cards that the game starts you out with are crap, so either harvest some cards by playing the first few levels over a few times, or start your online achievement boosting a bit early. Get together a variety of cards and do what you will. I recommend only using 2 different colors max in one deck. I used about 50% creatures in my deck and pretty much equal split for my items and spells.

Truth Seeker20
Obtain all cards besides E cards. 
The cards rewarded after each match are randomly generated. Certain boards, such as 'Stairway to the Gods' reward more cards for winning the match. I believe you are rewarded 3 rare cards and a total of 15 cards in that particular level. Be patient, you will eventually obtain all the cards. Through boosting online wins and story mode, you will get them.....eventually
Avid Collector80
Obtain all avatar parts. 

Obtain all avatar parts. Avatar parts are rewarded for doing particular tasks during either story mode matches or versus mode matches. You cannot earn them in any online matches, you cannot use virtual cepters(which im not sure why they are even available in the game), you cannot edit any of the options before the level select in versus.

Fated Traveler30
Encounter all characters. 
After you have beaten all of story mode you will unlock the ability to go back to certain levels previously not available to play in 'story mode'. Go back to the following levels and fight the 3 'hidden' characters in addition to beating the story mode and you will unlock this achievement.
Goligan : In story mode replay the past stage "Dinar Mountains."
Najaran :In story mode replay the past stage "Omengald."
Zenith : In story mode replay the past stage "Zanador."
Worldly Scholar20
Obtain 500 cards. 
Simply keep playing. Should unlock while going for the achievement "Truth Seeker."
Universal Scholar30
Obtain 1000 cards. 
Simply keep playing. Should unlock while going for the achievement "Truth Seeker."
Dragon Lord30
Achieve victory with all the dragons deployed at the same time. 
All of the following dragons must be on the board as well as you winning the match to unlock this achievement:
Armor Dragon (neutral)
Volcanic Dragon(red)
Deepsea Dragon(blue)
Hardrock Dragon(green)
Lightning Dragon(yellow)
Dragon Newt(red) = you must have the dragon newt transformed into
Dragon Lord by using its [120g] territory ability.
Machine Lord40
Achieve victory with three Gearions deployed at the same time. 
A gearion is created by combining a ground gear with a sky gear during a support in battle. This will create an Andro gear. You then need to combine the Andro gear with the Beast gear during a support in battle. This creates a Gear Lion. Maybe the translation from japanese to english got messed up, but i dont know what the hell a gearion is. A Gear Lion is what they are asking for. Now, you can either do this three times and spend about 4-5 hours doing it, or you can add the creature(blue) Quicksilver in your deck and use its territory ability that will almost for sure copy the Gear Lion you have created. It took me 30 minutes to do it this way.
Idol Lord40
Deploy all the idols at once. 
There are 13 idols in all. I won my match that i had all of them deployed, but i have heard that you dont have to win to get the achievement. Here are the 13: Iron Idol, Ivory Idol, Ebony Idol, Opal Idol, Clay Idol, Granite Idol, Gold Idol, Silver Idol, Jade Idol, Bassalt Idol, Brass Idol, Marble Idol, Lead Idol.
Ogre Lord20
Achieve victory with all the ogres deployed at the same time. 
There are 5 Ogres in all. Ogre Lord(neutral), Blue Ogre, Red Ogre, Green Ogre, Yellow Ogre. All of five must be deployed when you win your match.
King of Thieves30
Steal 300G or more of magic in one Bandit attack and achieve victory. 
A bandit steals gold equal to twice its damage. You will need to boost its attack to a 150 at least. I used fay's territory ability to boost the bandit's ST +20 to acquire this achievement. The bandit is also has a support ability, so you can use a creature from your hand as support to boost to the 150 damage.
Chief of Goblins30
Raise Red Cap's ST and HP to 300 or higher during battle and achieve victory. 
During battle, ST/HP= Number of ?Goblin? currently in play ×20. Aid[All Goblins gain ST/HP+20].
 
Put out enough goblins using 'goblin lair' or by just casting goblins(max 4 per deck) to boost Red Cap's ST and HP. You can also use Fay's territory ability to boost +20ST and you can use Lichtenoid to boost +10HP. I just used goblins.
Disciple of Justice20
Steal territory three times with Grass Strider and achieve victory. 
You CANNOT get a Grass Strider creature card in the game. You must use
Metamorph Belt in battle to change your current creature into Grass Strider and defeat the opponent creature. Must steal the territory in the process.
Surveyor of Fire20
Make all lands fire element and achieve victory. 
See the achievement "Surveyor of Air."
Surveyor of Water20
Make all lands water element and achieve victory. 
See the achievement "Surveyor of Air."
Surveyor of Earth20
Make all lands earth element and achieve victory. 
See the achievement "Surveyor of Air."
Surveyor of Air20
Make all lands air element and achieve victory. 
Easiest way to do this would be to go to Santana Village on versus mode and change all the lands to morph lands. then using the matching color creatures that you are trying to achieve, change the lands by simply landing with your creatures to change to the color you need. Change the gold target to whatever you feel comfortable with. 10,000g wont be that bad, and will give you enough time to do what you need to. Would be better to find an ai opponent that is using the same color creatures that you are trying to change the lands to.

Self explanatory.

For all of the above online wins, it would obviously be easiest to find a reliable boosting partner that is willing to trade with you. The online matches will not count if someone disconnects during the match or the server flops, which happens often. To be able to do all of the online matches in boosting format, it took me and my boosting partner 5 mins per match. That came out to about 34 hours total for both of us to accummulate 200 wins each. That is 34 hours of mindless boosting. This entire game, you must be patient or the game might not be for you. I would say if you used this guide you may be able to complete the game in about 120+ hours.
