For the main 200 you must make your way to the end of the single-player and archenemy campaigns. There will be challenges along the way which have two achievements tied to them. My solutions for the challenges are after the achievements (in my second post). There is one achievement for multiplayer which you will need to find two people in order to get. For the 50 from the DLC, you will need to complete another campaign where the challenges are unnecessary to get achievements.

In order to progress through the campaign, you will need to defeat each Planeswalker in a 1-on-1 game. Once you do so, you can play against one of the next in line. The achievements for Single-Player are similar to story-related achievements in that they can not be skipped.

The Archenemy mode can only be played once you've beaten Koth and Garruk Wildspeaker in the Single-Player Campaign mode. You can switch back and forth between menus using RB and LB. Much like the progression of the Single-Player campaign, you will need to defeat an opponent before moving on. This time, though, you can bring two allies with you. Each person has their own advantages, so try to choose based on whichever deck you are using (bringing three of the same deck is not always the best idea).

In order to get the achievements related to the Challenges, you at least need to be most of the way through Single-Player as well as most of the way through Archenemy.

Gather Your Allies15
Hosted an Archenemy match on Xbox LIVE with two human teammates (41) 

Open up Multiplayer and select Create Match. Select a mode and wait for two people to join. As soon as you start the game, you will get this achievement. This is easily boosted with friends since you can make the slots Private and invite them specifically.

Controlled three artifacts in a game (4) 

Load up the Machination deck that you get for defeating Tezzeret in the Single-Player Campaign. Play with it for a while and as soon as you have three artifacts in play, this will unlock.

Cast a Mythic rare spell in a game (5) 

You should get through normal progression (specifically by the time you finish the Master of Illusions Challenge in the next post). Load up the challenge and play Time Warp if you want this achievement.

Strength of Stone10
Defeated Koth in the Single-Player Campaign (1) 

Koth is the first Planeswalker in the Single-Player Campaign. Beat him in a 1-on-1 game for the achievement.

Magic: The Puzzling10
Solved a Challenge (2) 

Complete any of the challenges below (see this thread) for this one. You will need to at least defeat Koth in the Single-Player Campaign before you can attempt this.

You'll Never Get Away With It20
Defeated an Archenemy in a game (7) 

Beat Koth in the Archenemy Campaign and you'll get this achievement. Alternatively, you may be able to do this in Multiplayer. However, if you'll be going for the Evil's End achievement, you'll need to do this anyway.

Final Exam30
Defeated Karn in a campaign game (1) 

Karn is right after Gideon, making him the eleventh and final Planeswalker in the Single-Player Campaign section. The achievement will be yours once he's beaten.

Puzzling Master10
Solved Fifteen Challenges (8) 

Complete all of the challenges in both the Single-Player and Archenemy Campaigns (I'm not sure if doing challenges count toward this achievement).

Evil's End25
Completed the Archenemy campaign (17) 

Nicol Bolas will probably be the most frustrating part of the game to get past, but once you defeat him this achievement will unlock.

Ancient Depths15
Defeated Kiora in the Single-Player Campaign 

Kiora is the fourth Planeswalker in the Single-Player Campaign. Once you've beaten Koth, you will need to defeat Garruk Wildspeaker and Tezzeret in 1-on-1 games. This will let you fight Kiora and once you beat her, you'll unlock this achievement.

Unquenchable Fire20
Defeated Chandra in the Single-Player Campaign 

Chandra is the seventh Planeswalker in the Single-Player Campaign. Once Kiora is defeated, Jace Beleren and Sarkhan Vol will be unlocked. Beat them to unlock Chandra, then beat her to get this achievement.

Wielding Steel25
Defeated Gideon in the Single-Player Campaign 

Gideon is the tenth Planeswalker in the Single-Player Campaign. After Chandra, you must beat Sorin Markov and Nissa Revane to reach him. Defeat him for this achievement.

DLC: Expansion 1
Cost: $4.99 USD Achievements: 3 Points: 50
Your Puny Minds Cannot Fathom15
Host a match on Xbox LIVE as the Archenemy (24) 

Go to Multiplayer. Go to Create Match. Go to Archenemy. Select Play as the archenemy. Set two slots to AI Player. From there, you will need a human to join your game. You should be able to ask someone in the Achievement Trading Thread to help out. This will unlock as soon as you start the game, before it even loads.

Your Fate is Thrice Sealed15
Defeat Gideon, Garruk and Koth as the Archenemy in a campaign game (5) 

Gideon, Garruk, and Koth are the first three Planeswalkers that you must defeat in the Expansion campaign. You will be the archenemy so even though you may be outnumbered, it won't necessarily mean you're at a disadvantage. At the beginning of each of your turns, you will automatically have an effect (called a Scheme) happen that will most of the time help you defeat your opponents.

My Crushing Masterstroke20
Defeat Jace, Jace and Jace as the Archenemy in a campaign game (10) 

Jace, Jace, and Jace are the eleventh group and last three Planeswalkers you must defeat. They are all using the Realm of Illusion deck, so be careful not to let them get too many creatures out. Once you defeat all three of them, this achievement will unlock.
