Madness Suppressed

Defeat Sarkhan the Mad in the single-player campaign (Expansion 3)   

Sarkhan's final deck is is built around his Eldrazi (huge endgame creatures) and dragons using Solemn Simulacrum to accelerate his land drops and several removal spells to hold off until he has the required mana to play these massive creatures. Another card to look out for and which must be dealt with before its effect kicks in is Dragonmaster Outcast. The best counter would be a quick kill deck with several flying creatures and removal spells so the Relics of Doom deck would be the ideal choice, but again use whatever deck you feel comfortable using. You can also reduce the difficulty to easy if needed and don't be afraid to mulligan or reset to get a good opening hand. Once you defeat Sarkhan's final deck, you'll unlock the achievement and Sorin Markov's vampire deck, Master of Shadows.

I found that the best method for this was to use the eyes of shadow deck against the first two duelists (gideon jura and niv-mizzet), and then to use the heat of battle deck against the final two (sorin markov and sarkhan the mad). You'll find that the real tough guy in sorin once again, and that sarkhan can be taken down pretty easily as long as you kill him before he can summon that 10/10 of his. Good luck!

I used the Elf Deck and Wildspeaker Deck (green deck). Elfs are powerful and aggressive. I used the green deck against Sorin Markov (vampires). Elfs can beat Sorin Markov if you draw worm tooth's early; to hold out longer to build up strength.
