Tsunami of Pain

Deal 12 combat damage to an opponent in a single attack with one blue creature (Expansion 3)   

Using the Relics of Doom deck you can unlock "Tsunami of Pain" during your 1st match against Gideon Jura by boosting Master of Etherium to over 12 strength and attacking with it. It must be unblocked and deliver at least 12 point of damage to your opponent regardless on how much life your opponent has left. The alternative to using the Relics of Doom deck is to boost Sphinx of Magosi to at least 12 strength and attack unblocked with it. The Sphinx is found in either the Thoughts of the Wind deck (the last card to unlock) or the Root of the Firemind deck (deck unlocks after defeating the last Niv-Mizzet).

The only possible way I found to get this in single player is to use the root of the firemind deck, and by powering up the creature sphinx of magosi (which by paying 3 mana you can put a +1/+1 counter on). Just go into the campaign and I'd suggest versing elspeth tirrel as she doesn't have any damaging spells, and her creatures aren't too bad either. Basically just wait until you get sphinx of magosi on the field and then power it up and attack. It should be noted that if you don't get sphinx of magosi before your deck has 15 cards left in it, it would be advisable to restart.

Relics of Doom deck can do it as well.

Since Master of Etherium has Power/Toughness equal to how many artifacts you control.
I managed to get enough out to get him up to 12/12 and then attacked and it popped.
Could also do it with Denzien of the Deep, though dunno if that deck has any buff enchantments.

I did it with Relics of doom versus hands of flame on easy.
Play defensively waiting for Master of Etherium to be a 12/12 and store as many instant killers as you can. Until the Master grows try to keep the board clean of enemy creatures with your own artifacts. Once the Master is 12/12 kill any remaining creature with instants and finally attack with him.
Piece of cake.

there's an even more easier way to do it :)

put on a co-op custom duel, you taking Thoughts of Wind standard
and put a second controller with Teeth of Predator and put Ajani Goldmane
as both your enemy's. When you start it up don't use your power ups
(Giant Growth and Blanchwood Armor) on any monsters
yet. put on a little defence on both sides and once you got like 10 forests
with the second controller, put Blanchwood Armor on a flying monster.
once that's done, attack with that monster and put Giant Growth on it.

I just did it 5 minutes ago, attacked with a Snapping Drake, powered it
up till 13/12 and attacked, waited 2 seconds and my achievement popped up.

easy done, easy go :)

As Saint_Lunatic said this is very easy in co-op custom. Play thoughts of wind or Tezzert's deck (recommend thoughts of wind for this strategy) with Teeth of the Predator. Play against Teeth of the Predatorx2 as they have only 1 creature that can defend against flyers. You can increase your life total and reduce their starting hand size to 5 to make this even easier. Also if you are having trouble doing this take out any cards in the 2 decks you are using that do not help you reach your goal.

Do you need to buy the DLC to get the achievement or can you still get it without the DLC and only use "Thoughts of Wind"?

I pulled this one off playing single player using Relics of Doom. Completely forgot about this achievement until I heard that lovely sound.
