Strategy[]

Demon Hunter[]

1) Don't open From the Inside (Summon 50 Deathrattle minions without playing them, as Demon Hunter)

A regular deck of Deathrattle Demon Hunter is quite suitable to get an achievement since it often uses such cards as Forged in the BarrensRazorboar, Forged in the BarrensRazorfen Beastmaster, and Forged in the BarrensDeath Speaker Blackthorn.

To speed up progress, include any additional cards that can summon deathrattles: Ashes of OutlandTeron Gorefiend, The Boomsday ProjectExplodinator, Kobolds & CatacombsCarnivorous Cube, Scholomance AcademyVectus, Goblins vs GnomesDr. Boom, Madness at the Darkmoon FaireN'Zoth, God of the Deep, Whispers of the Old GodsN'Zoth, the Corruptor and so on.

2) To the Left-Mooost! To the Waaall! (Destroy 30 minions with Kurtrus Ashfallen)

Forged in the BarrensKurtrus Ashfallen may be a good temporary addition to most Demon Hunter decklists. Since almost all decks currently play small tempo minions instead of heavy ones, Kurtrus will very often kill both enemies even without the outcast effect. In addition, do not forget that the usual attacks of Kurtrus are also counted, so Animated Broomstick will come in handy for additional kills.

It is worth noting that Kurtrus is an outcast card, so it can often be found using Madness at the Darkmoon FaireIllidari Studies. If a special deck is created for this achievement, the cards that generate additional copies of Kurtrus (e.g., LegacyYouthful Brewmaster, Madness at the Darkmoon FaireZai, the Incredible, The WitchwoodBaleful Banker, or Kobolds & CatacombsZola the Gorgon) are may be added.

3) VENGEANCE... Next Turn (Trigger 200 Sigils)

Sigils are not the most useful cards because the opponent always sees their approaching effect and knows how to play around them, so to complete the achievement faster, it is better to create a special deck consisting of the maximum possible Sigils, spell-generating and drawing cards.

The following cards are suitable for generating additional Sigil cards: Scholomance AcademyEducated Elekk, Forged in the BarrensVenomous Scorpid, Saviors of UldumVulpera Scoundrel, Scholomance AcademySteward of Scrolls, Madness at the Darkmoon FaireZai, the Incredible.

4) Tormented Hearts (Force your opponent to spend 45 extra Mana with Taintheart Tormenter)

Create a Big Demon Hunter deck that can quickly summon Tormented Ritualist. This is best helped by such cards as the Demon Hunter InitiateRaging Felscreamer, Ashes of OutlandFel Summoner, Ashes of OutlandSkull of Gul'dan, and Ashes of OutlandPit Commander. Additional copies of the Tormented Ritualist can be created with Scholomance AcademyFelosophy, Demon Hunter InitiateSoul Split, or LegacyFaceless Manipulator.

Since Tormented Ritualist has quite a big stats, it is highly likely will force the opponent to spend at least one spell. To prevent the opponent from trying to kill him as quickly as possible try to make it clear that you are doing the achievement by not attacking the enemy hero.


Druid[]

1) Do It for the Vines (Cast 5 Druid Nature spells in a single turn, 25 times)

To get an achievement, any low-cost Nature spells are needed, especially LegacyInnervate and Scholomance AcademyLightning Bloom. Create a deck like a low-cost spell druid or Miracle Druid with LegacyGadgetzan Auctioneer, and soon the achievement will be received.

2) The Final Frontier (Play 5 cards in a single turn that naturally cost 8 or more)

This achievement is easiest to get with suck cards as Forged in the BarrensCelestial Alignment or The Grand TournamentAviana, and the best deck will be a Wild Malygos Druid, where seven to nine cards for 8+ Mana are usually used.

Alternative options are to play giants (LegacyMolten Giant, One Night in KarazhanArcane Giant, and so on), play Journey to Un'GoroJungle Giants, Rise of ShadowsJepetto Joybuzz, Blackrock MountainEmperor Thaurissan, Rogue's Galakrond.

3) Buy One, Get One Free (of Taunt) (Copy 50 minions with Plaguemaw the Rotting)

A very difficult achievement because Forged in the BarrensPlaguemaw the Rotting is a soft Taunt and does not have great characteristics. This circumstance forces to summon cheap Taunt minions in order to have more opportunities for their summoning without Taunt. Almost any cheap minions and spells are may be suitable for this (Scholomance AcademyAnimated Broomstick, Ashes of OutlandIronbark, Forged in the BarrensMark of the Spikeshell, Forged in the BarrensThorngrowth Sentries, Saviors of UldumInfested Goblin).

In addition to Animated Broomstick, damaging spells like LegacyMoonfire, LegacyWrath, Madness at the Darkmoon FaireLunar Eclipse, or Ashes of OutlandBogbeam can be used to instantly kill Taunt minions.

It is worth noting Plaguemaw the Rotting is a Quilboar so it can be resurrected by Madness at the Darkmoon FaireN'Zoth, God of the Deep.

With a successful scenario, it is possible to use Ashes of OutlandGermination, LegacyFaceless Manipulator, Kobolds & CatacombsZola the Gorgon, or Madness at the Darkmoon FaireGreybough, but given the above circumstances, such cards will rarely bring benefits in obtaining an achievement. Approximately the same applies to Reborn minions - Saviors of UldumBone Wraith, Saviors of UldumKhartut Defender, Galakrond's AwakeningWinged Guardian. When they die for the first time while Plaguemaw the Rotting is on the board, a copy is summoned without Taunt, but with Reborn; when they die again, Plaguemaw will summon a minion with both abilities. Such endless chains are able to ensure rapid progress, but they are implemented only with the assistance of the opponent.

4) Puppy Power (Play Druid Beasts for 100 less Mana than their normal Cost)

Create a deck of protective spells, the most expensive druid beasts, and add Forged in the BarrensCelestial Alignment or The Grand TournamentAviana - this will ensure the fastest possible progress.

Other slower, but working methods: Forged in the BarrensLiving Seed (Rank 1), Forged in the BarrensFangbound Druid, Journey to Un'GoroJungle Giants, Rise of ShadowsJepetto Joybuzz, Blackrock MountainEmperor Thaurissan.


Hunter[]

1) Pack Attack (Summon 6 Swift Hyenas in a single turn.) This achievement will not take much time, but it will require a special deck consisting of cheap spells and Forged in the BarrensKolkar Pack Runner. This minion and Forged in the BarrensWound Prey summon the same hyena, which simplifies the game and requires less resources. If the Kolkar Pack Runner is not in the collection, it may de discovered with Madness at the Darkmoon FaireResizing Pouch.

In general, the achievement can be obtained on the 7th turn by the following combination: Kolkar Pack Runner, two Wound Preys, three any spells for 0-1 Mana.

2) Pack Attack (Trigger the Frenzy on a 5th-generation Sunscale Raptor)

Before doing the achievement, note the following information:

  • It is necessary to activate Frenzy on the fifth generated Forged in the BarrensSunscale Raptor, which has at least 9/7 stats;
  • Frenzy effects of two or more Raptors work independently of each other, and thus, each raptor creates a separate generation chains when the effect is activated.

Thus, the presence of two or more Sunscale Raptors in the deck will greatly complicate attempts to get the achievement instead of facilitation.

A special deck is needed here consisting of one Sunscale Raptor, put into hand cards (Forged in the BarrensWarsong Wrangler, Ashes of OutlandScavenger's Ingenuity, LegacyTracking, Journey to Un'GoroTol'vir Warden, Rastakhan's RumbleMaster's Call), drawing, and instant small damage for raptors (Scholomance AcademyAnimated Broomstick, Rise of ShadowsRapid Fire, Forged in the BarrensWound Prey, Whispers of the Old GodsOn the Hunt and so on)

3) Who Let The Dogs Out? (Summon 75 Beasts with Tavish Stormpike)

The usual decks with Forged in the BarrensTavish Stormpike prefer value and rarely contain Rush or Charge minions except LegacyTundra Rhino, so to progress here, it is desirable to make changes to this deck to create an attacking chain before Tavish will be killed. The examples: Ashes of OutlandMok'Nathal Lion, Descent of DragonsHippogryph, Ashes of OutlandZixor, Apex Predator, Descent of DragonsDiving Gryphon, Rise of ShadowsHench-Clan Hogsteed, The WitchwoodVicious Scalehide, CoreEmerald Skytalon, Rastakhan's RumbleSpringpaw, Knights of the Frozen ThroneSnowflipper Penguin.

4) Poison, Poisoff (Destroy 60 minions with Poisonous Beasts and weapons)

Not only Poisonous beasts and weapons contribute to progress, but also damaging / removing spells discovered by Forged in the BarrensVenomous Scorpid. Therefore, if there is time, it is not necessary to create a special Poisonous deck; there would be enough to pick a necessary spells from Venomous Scorpid since this minion is suitable for many non-aggro decks.

Any poisonous beasts are may be added to a special deck, preferably Scholomance AcademyAnimated Broomstick, and optionally Knights of the Frozen ThroneDeathstalker Rexxar и Forged in the BarrensSerpentbloom. The latter can significantly help when it is cast on The Grand TournamentDreadscale.


Mage[]

1) Shatter Combo (Destroy 50 Frozen minions)

Any freezing card are suitable to complete this achievement. Since it is required to kill frozen minions instead of destroying them with Frost spells, it is not necessary to try to deal lethal damage to the minions, it is possible to finish them off later with other cards after freezing.

In general, the fastest ways to get the achievement are to play Wild Tempo / Mozaki Mage or create a special deck that is full of freezing cards (especially Madness at the Darkmoon FaireGlacier Racer, LegacyCone of Cold, LegacyBlizzard, Forged in the BarrensVarden Dawngrasp).

2) Barrens Bubbler (Refresh 8 Mana Crystals with Refreshing Spring Water in a single turn)

Any No Minion Mage deck can deal here. To guarantee, play Forged in the BarrensRefreshing Spring Water only when both spells are in hand and there is enough mana to play them in one turn.

For a small acceleration, suck spells as Madness at the Darkmoon FaireConjure Mana Biscuit, Ashes of OutlandIncanter's Flow, or Forged in the BarrensRuned Orb may be useful.

3) It's Not "Spamming", It's Art (Deal 300 damage with your Hero Power as Mage)

This achievement is preferable to get on the Hero Power Mage deck which does not require a significant correction. Play normally, using such cards as The Grand TournamentFallen Hero, Forged in the BarrensWildfire, Forged in the BarrensReckless Apprentice and the achievement will be taken in due time.

In Wild, Rastakhan's RumbleDaring Fire-Eater, Galakrond's AwakeningArcane Amplifier, Rastakhan's RumbleWaterboy, The Grand TournamentFencing Coach, The Grand TournamentMaiden of the Lake, and even Blackrock MountainMajordomo Executus can be additionally used. In addition, both Odd and Even Mage decks will play equally well here.

4) Don't Move a Muscle! (Freeze 75 characters with Elementals)

Slowly but surely, this achievement can be completed when playing Odd Decks (with Journey to Un'GoroGlacial Shard) or Secret Mage using Forged in the BarrensOasis Ally.

Specially created decks have two options. The first is a Freeze Mage actively using cards like Journey to Un'GoroGlacial Shard, Forged in the BarrensFrostweave Dungeoneer, Forged in the BarrensRimetongue, LegacyWater Elemental, Galakrond's AwakeningHailbringer, and LegacyFrost Elemental. However, the most valuable tool in this deck will be the combination of Knights of the Frozen ThroneIce Walker + Forged in the BarrensReckless Apprentice.

The second option is Rogue's deck with with Glacial Shard. Use various cards with Copy or Return to hand abilities (LegacyShadowstep, Rise of ShadowsDaring Escape, Blackrock MountainGang Up, LegacyYouthful Brewmaster...) to repeatedly use Glacial Shard's battlecry.


Paladin[]

1) Spell Slingin' Savior (Cast 5 Paladin Holy spells in a single turn, 15 times)

Of the battle-ready decks, this achievement is feasible for Libram Paladin in a late game with the combination of the following circumstances: Ashes of OutlandLibram of Wisdom costs (0) and there are at least four friendly minions on the board, ready to attack themselves or with the help of Scholomance AcademyAnimated Broomstick, and the enemy sufficient to absorb at least five strikes. In this situation, it will be enough to cast Libram of Wisdom before the attack.

The second option is a special deck of any cheap Holy spells for (1) and several minions for surviving before the fifth turn. Just wait for 4-5 turns and cast the five necessary spells.

2) Just Between You and Me (Trigger 5 Paladin Secrets in one turn)

For this achievement, the player will need a special Secret Paladin deck. A guaranteed combination that requires one minion on the table (with a high chance it will be The Grand TournamentMysterious Challenger): NaxxramasAvenge, Mean Streets of GadgetzanGetaway Kodo, Forged in the BarrensJudgment of Justice, LegacyNoble Sacrifice, LegacyRedemption. In the absence of any secrets CoreReckoning, Madness at the Darkmoon FaireOh My Yogg!, or The Grand TournamentCompetitive Spirit are may be used.

3) Wear Your Sunday Best (Buff 600 minions with Invigorating Sermon)

Since Forged in the BarrensInvigorating Sermon affects all minions wherever they are, this spell can be put in almost any deck without the strong need to summon the minions firstly.

It is desirable for a special deck to look like this: two Invigorating Sermons, two Forged in the BarrensKnight of Anointment for their instant finding, and minions, as well as cards that generate them (e.g., Journey to Un'GoroLost in the Jungle, Goblins vs GnomesMuster for Battle, Scholomance AcademyFirst Day of School, One Night in KarazhanPrince Malchezaar). A similar alignment with a quick finding of both spells will allow to complete the achievement in 10-15 games.

4) Friends Like Me (Summon 4 of the same Adventurer with Party Up!)

One of the most difficult achievements to get due to the very low chance of success (0.88%) and the lack of sense to put other Adventurers on the board before the spell.

Forged in the BarrensParty Up! may be added to any deck, especially Odd Paladin, and for a special one aimed at more frequent use of this spell, put The Boomsday ProjectPrismatic Lens and a lot of cheap minions.


Priest[]

1) Two Health Bars (Restore 40 Health to heroes in one game as Priest)

This achievement is most easily done with Reno Priest in Wild. It is enough to play The League of ExplorersReno Jackson twice with Kobolds & CatacombsZola the Gorgon or Rastakhan's RumbleSeance. If there are other healing cards in the deck like Forged in the BarrensDesperate Prayer, Ashes of OutlandRenew, The WitchwoodDivine Hymn, or Mean Streets of GadgetzanGreater Healing Potion, then Zola the Gorgon or Seance would not be needed.

2) Blood Donation (Attack and kill the drained minion with Serena Bloodfeather 5 times)

A pretty simple achievement thanks to Scholomance AcademyAnimated Broomstick. Put this card and Forged in the BarrensSerena Bloodfeather in any priest deck, and after a few games the achievement will be completed.

To get additional copies of Serena, use Scholomance AcademyRaise Dead in the deck. Madness at the Darkmoon FaireInsight will be useful for quick finding the required minions.

3) Why Can't I Hold All These Cards? (Start 50 turns with a full hand as Priest)

It is not necessary to overdraw cards. Holding 9 cards into the draw phase will still count as 10 cards for the beginning of the turn.

Control Priest will be the best deck to advance due to the many cards that generate resources, and thus allow to quickly fill the hand. Use such cards as Scholomance AcademyRaise Dead, LegacyThoughtsteal, Ashes of OutlandRenew, Madness at the Darkmoon FairePalm Reading, Descent of DragonsGalakrond, the Unspeakable and so on.

4) Even Steven (Destroy 10 minions with a single Against All Odds)

For this achievement, it is desirable to create a special deck. Use Rise of ShadowsMad Summoner, Scholomance AcademyWave of Apathy just in case and any spells' manacost reduction (Madness at the Darkmoon FairePalm Reading, Blackrock MountainEmperor Thaurissan...). When everything will be ready, play Mad Summoner and immediately kill all the minions using Forged in the BarrensAgainst All Odds.

Wave of Apathy will be useful if the opponent has a minions with an even attack at the time of playing Mad Summoner, and will also help to survive until the moment of the combination. In addition, Saviors of UldumDesert Hare or The Boomsday ProjectMicrotech Controller can be used instead of Mad Summoner.


Rogue[]

1) Identity Theft Is Not a Joke (Yoink! all 10 Hero Powers)

Before doing the achievement, note the Rogue's hero power cannot be discovered with Forged in the BarrensYoink! if it is the current hero power. It will be possible to find it if another hero power is used not only with the help of Yoink!, but also The League of ExplorersSir Finley Mrrgglton, The WitchwoodBaku the Mooneater and other.

Write down in a notepad or just remember which hero powers were already chosen, and the achievement will be received in due time.

If the battle-ready deck is used for this achievemnt then Yoink! may be a temporary replacement in Odd Rogue or Kingsbane Rogue.

2) Just Don't Touch the Blade (Coat a Swinetusk Shank in 4 different Poisons)

Here it is necessary to enhance Forged in the BarrensSwinetusk Shank with at least four Poison cards - LegacyDeadly Poison, Knights of the Frozen ThroneLeeching Poison, Forged in the BarrensParalytic Poison, Madness at the Darkmoon FaireNitroboost Poison, or Forged in the BarrensSilverleaf Poison. The lack of some kind of poison can be compensated by Forged in the BarrensApothecary Helbrim.

To get this achievement, a modified Kingsbane Rogue will be suitable, where Kobolds & CatacombsKingsbane must be replaced by Swinetusk Shank, and more Poison cards to be included. Scholomance AcademySecret Passage, Kobolds & CatacombsCavern Shinyfinder, Madness at the Darkmoon FaireSwindle, and Rastakhan's RumbleRaiding Party will help to quickly find the above cards.

3) Magnets How Do They Work? (Play 12 cards in a single turn as Rogue)

Playing 12 cards per turn is not difficult for experienced Miracle Rogue players. Just take this deck and correctly use the Forged in the BarrensField Contact / LegacyGadgetzan Auctioneer effect.

4) Hiding in Plain Sight (Give 30 minions Stealth with Shroud of Concealment)

Since Forged in the BarrensShroud of Concealment is not a very useful card for any rogue deck, it is better to create a special one mainly with minions for 0-1 mana. To quickly find the Shroud of Concealment, use Madness at the Darkmoon FaireSwindle.


Shaman[]

1) My Dear Watson (Play an Elemental 5 turns in a row)

A fairly simple achievement, requiring only a deck with a lot of elementals. This can be either a specially created or a regular Aggro Shaman deck. For reliability, it is advisable to keep at least one elemental in hand by the end of the turn.

2) Murlockdown (Destroy 50 enemies with Murlocs as Shaman)

It is enough to play on a Standard / Wild Murloc Shaman deck and trade with enemies. However, it is also doable with Reno Shudderwock Shaman deck, which uses a combination of Forged in the BarrensFiremancer Flurgl + Rise of ShadowsToxfin that is guaranteed to destroy any board without Divine Shields, and is quickly found with Knights of the Frozen ThroneIce Fishing.

3) Extra Organic (Deal 150 extra damage with Nature spells)

The player needs to deal extra damage with Nature spells with the use of Spell Damage. Thus, using Rise of ShadowsHagatha's Scheme in the absence of Spell Damage does not make sense.

The best Spell Damage sources will be Forged in the BarrensBru'kan and LegacyMalygos, and the best Nature spells will be any suitable AoE (The Boomsday ProjectBeakered Lightning, One Night in KarazhanMaelstrom Portal, The Grand TournamentElemental Destruction, LegacyLightning Storm, or Madness at the Darkmoon FaireDunk Tank). Malygos Shaman is well suited for performing this achievement, where such Nature cards as LegacyLightning Bolt and Goblins vs GnomesCrackle are actively used; The WitchwoodZap! or The Boomsday ProjectBeakered Lightning may also be cast.

In addition, in the early game, a little progress is possible not only with the minions liek LegacyBloodmage Thalnos, but also through Scholomance AcademyRune Dagger and Scholomance AcademyPrimordial Studies.

The fastest completion can be achieved by the following combinations: Rise of ShadowsMad Summoner, Zap! on any imp, Goblins vs GnomesAncestor's Call on Malygos, Beakered Lightning / Bru'kan, Mad Summoner, Beakered Lightning.

4) Spit Hot Fire (Destroy 75 enemy minions with Perpetual Flame)

In rare cases, this card can help in the Reno Shudderwock Shaman deck, but for faster results it is easier to resort to the help of Mad Summoner. To quickly find Forged in the BarrensPerpetual Flame use Rastakhan's RumbleSpirit of the Frog and spells for (0), and additional copies can be generated using Scholomance AcademyDiligent Notetaker.


Warlock[]

1) Discard Inferno (Destroy 3 Legendary cards with a single Altar of Fire)

It is enough to create a deck of any 29 legendary cards and Forged in the BarrensAltar of Fire, and the achievement will be done in a few games.

It is undesirable to try a luck, but it is still possible in any Control Warlock build or the deck with Forged in the BarrensNeeru Fireblade.

2) Shadow of a Shadow (Cast 80 0-Cost Warlock Shadow spells)

To get this achievement, it is not necessary to use Forged in the BarrensTamsin Roame at all - currently plays well in Pain Warlock in Wild; it can be done with a homemade Zoo Warlock deck with any suitable spells - Whispers of the Old GodsForbidden Ritual, Scholomance AcademyRaise Dead, Ritual of Doom, and LegacySacrificial Pact.

3) What's Better than Two Imps? (Summon 250 Imps)

This one has a large number of options - Journey to Un'GoroLakkari Sacrifice, Forged in the BarrensNeeru Fireblade, Soulcial Studies in Duels etc. In general, it is enough to enter "imp" in a search tab to find the cards suitable for implemention.

The best results in this case will be shown by a special Galakrond Warlock deck with an emphasis on summoning demons. Add here The WitchwoodFiendish Circle, Rise of ShadowsRafaam's Scheme, Forged in the BarrensImp Swarm (Rank 1), Rise of ShadowsMad Summoner and so on.

4) Ugh, It's MY Life Mom (Spend 100 Health on Warlock cards)

Since currently Journey to Un'GoroBloodbloom, Mean Streets of GadgetzanSeadevil Stinger, Forged in the BarrensStealer of Souls, and Whispers of the Old GodsCho'gall are not a good cards for battle-ready decks, it is better to create a special one. Add the above cards and also healing and AoE to survive until the health spending.

Also keep in mind the at Immune-granting cards One Night in KarazhanViolet Illusionist, Goblins vs GnomesMal'Ganis hinder progress.


Warrior[]

1) Gym Buddies (Use Bulk Up to create a 4th copy of the same minion in your hand)

A fairly simple achievement that needs only two identical Taunt minions, two Forged in the BarrensBulk Up and using these spells when at least one minion is in hand. It is preferable to make the rest of the deck from various control and drawing spells in order to live up to the required combination.

The best minion to copy is Ashes of OutlandRuststeed Raider due to the possibility to quickly find it using Madness at the Darkmoon FaireStage Dive.

2) Hardcor Rancor (Gain 14 Armor with a single Rancor)

Use the following combination, which almost always guarantees success: Rise of ShadowsMad Summoner + two Inner Fires on Mad Summoner + Forged in the BarrensRancor

For reliability, Blackrock MountainEmperor Thaurissan, The Boomsday ProjectMicrotech Controller, or Saviors of UldumDesert Hare are may be added.

3) It'll Take More than That (Have 100 friendly minions survive damage on your turn as Warrior)

Any Frenzy / Rush Warrior deck will cope with this achievement sooner or later. Play a little differently, trying to make the minions survive after hitting the enemies.

In addition, to speed up progress, try to add Galakrond's AwakeningRisky Skipper to the deck.

4) Kresh Got Back (Attack 60 times with Turtle Spikes)

Since Forged in the BarrensKresh, Lord of Turtling is quite strong card and can cause the enemy either the difficulties in killing him (which means no progress on achievement), and the desire to remove him without activating a deathrattle (Saviors of UldumPlague of Murlocs, LegacyPolymorph...), it is advisable to kill Kresh yourself immediately after putting him on the board, for example, using Scholomance AcademyCoerce.

Optionally, the additional charges for Turtle Spike may be added using LegacyUpgrade!, LegacyCaptain Greenskin or Scholomance AcademyDoctor Krastinov. Hoard Pillager will allow to reequip the weapon, but this opportunity will rarely come in handy since it is possible to attack only once, and Turtle Spike has a quite big durability compared to the most of other weapons.

In long games, Forged in the BarrensOverlord Saurfang and Madness at the Darkmoon FaireN'Zoth, God of the Deep will also be useful.


Neutral[]

1) Life is a Highway (Start 100 turns with a Caravan)

This achievement is quite difficult to accomplish, since the caravans have too significant effect to leave them on the battlefield, and therefore they are often destroyed even on the first turn. In this regard, Priest is probably the best choice thanks to the spells of summoning minions and resurrection. Put Forged in the BarrensSoothsayer's Caravan in the Big Priest deck instead of The Boomsday ProjectZilliax, Forged in the BarrensLightshower Elemental or Ashes of OutlandScrapyard Colossus and the achievement will be ready in due time.

2) Signature Moves (Cast 100 Rank 3 spells)

Note that such cards as The Boomsday ProjectElectra Stormsurge, Rise of ShadowsArchmage Vargoth, or Madness at the Darkmoon FaireSolar Eclipse do not contribute to progress, so using them to complete this achievement does not make sense.

The best classes will be Druid (a quick mana ramp and many options to find additional copies of Forged in the BarrensLiving Seed (Rank 1) - Madness at the Darkmoon FaireGuidance, Scholomance AcademyNature Studies, The League of ExplorersRaven Idol, Madness at the Darkmoon FaireResizing Pouch) and Shaman (the ability to get up to two additional copies of Forged in the BarrensChain Lightning (Rank 1) with the help of Scholomance AcademyDiligent Notetaker or Rastakhan's RumbleKrag'wa, the Frog, as well as find it through Madness at the Darkmoon FaireGuidance, The WitchwoodWitch's Apprentice, Rastakhan's RumbleHaunting Visions, or Ashes of OutlandMarshspawn).

3) Frenzy Friends (Trigger 100 Frenzy effects)

Doable and easy to perform in any deck that uses Frenzy minions. Frenzy Warrior is best suited here.

4) Maximum Security (Play 50 Watch Posts)

For this achievement, it is desirable to create a separate deck with a maximum of Watch Posts. For a slower progress, but without significant damage to the winrate, Far Watch Post may be temporarily added in any battle-ready deck.

5) Everyone's In Here! (End your turn with 7 Gruntled Patrons)

One of the few achievements that are easy to perform in Duels rather than in Ranked mode. It is enough to equip Spiked Arms and play Forged in the BarrensGruntled Patron.

In Ranked, the achievement is done by the following combination: two Gruntled Patrons, two Inner Fires, LegacyWhirlwind.

6) Has Anyone Seen Mankrik's Wife? (Destroy your opponent with Mankrik, Consumed by Hatred)

It is most easy to kill an opponent through Forged in the BarrensMankrik, Consumed by Hatred when playing on the Hunter and Rogue decks. Hunter can immediately get the right spell with Forged in the BarrensBarak Kodobane, and Rogue - with Descent of DragonsStowaway.

If desired, LegacyShadowstep or LegacyYouthful Brewmaster are may be added to the deck, but this does not guarantee success becasue Mankrik does not have a Charge.

7) Top Secret Snoop (Copy 5 Secrets with a single Horde Operative)

Very difficult achievement with a low chance of success. It is better to try to complete in Wild by playing a Control deck against Secret Mages. Also, sometimes is is possible to see there Secret Rogue or Reno Hunters with Rastakhan's RumbleZul'jin.

8) Equivalent Exchange (Swap a 0-Cost minion with a 10-Cost minion with Shadow Hunter Vol'jin)

It is enough to find the The Boomsday ProjectMecha'thun Warlock deck that destroys the enemies by swapping the minion for (0) to Mecha'thun using the battlecry of Forged in the BarrensShadow Hunter Vol'jin.

9) Build-A-Rock Workshop (Build custom Golems using all 12 herbs)

Take any deck that uses Forged in the BarrensKazakus, Golem Shaper, and write down or remember what effects were already chosen when creating golems. It is not necessary to play the golems themselves to get an achievement, as well as to use The League of ExplorersBrann Bronzebeard, Kobolds & CatacombsMurmuring Elemental or Saviors of UldumCorrupt the Waters.

10) Spawn Shop (Summon 50 Demonspawn with Burning Blade Acolyte)

This achievement is probably the best grinded out in Warlock as Ritual of Doom, Forged in the BarrensGrimoire of Sacrifice, and LegacyMortal Coil can instantly kill Burning Blade Acolyte, and Scholomance AcademyRaise Dead could give more copies.

Alternatively, Burning Blade Acolyte may be temporarily added in the Big Priest deck.

11) Grand Guardian (Summon a 10-Cost minion with Primordial Protector)

Any deck with a spell for (10) will work here. Clown Druid in Standart or Malygos / Jade Druid in Wild will be suitable.

12) Hog Wild (Summon 50 Hogs with Hog Rancher)

It is best to perform on a special rogue deck, since there are many cards that double battlecries and return minions to the hand. E.g., The League of ExplorersBrann Bronzebeard / Rastakhan's RumbleSpirit of the Shark; LegacyShadowstep, Rise of ShadowsDaring Escape, Rise of ShadowsTogwaggle's Scheme, Blackrock MountainGang Up, Scholomance AcademyLab Partner.

As additional tools, try using Whispers of the Old GodsShadowcaster, Knights of the Frozen ThroneValeera the Hollow, or Kobolds & CatacombsSonya Shadowdancer with the support of Scholomance AcademyAnimated Broomstick.

13) Sting Operation (Destroy 25 minions with Venomous Scorpid)

The progress of this achievement is provided not only by the attacks of Forged in the BarrensVenomous Scorpid itself, but also by the damaging / removing spells discovered by it. Therefore, it is not necessary to try to combine Venomous Scorpid with Scholomance AcademyAnimated Broomstick, shuffle the additional copies, copy, resurrect, etc. It is enough to discover the spells from it that can cause damage or immediately kill enemy minions.

14) Adventure is Out There (Summon 100 Adventurers)

Most likely, this one will be completed in the process of obtaining the paladin achievement ("Friends Like Me"), but for speed up progress, add the corresponding adventurer summoning cards to any deck: Forged in the BarrensFinal Gasp, Forged in the BarrensMeeting Stone, Forged in the BarrensDevouring Ectoplasm.

Since it is quite easy to summon adventurers, copying or resurrecting them does not make much sense.

15) Hungry Hungry Murloc (Eat 20 minions with Mutanus the Devourer that are 4/4 or larger)

The progress of this achievement depends almost entirely on the opponent's deck, but it still has a good chance of success in every game, since currently a rare deck runs only small minions. Note that 4/4 means the minimum numerical threshold, not the total sum of the minions' stats, so even if a 3/50 minion was eaten, it will not be counted for the achievement.

In Standard Forged in the BarrensMutanus the Devourer can play in any control deck, especially Priest and Warlock stand out well. In Wild mode, he mainly plays in Reno Warlock and Reno Shaman.

A dubious, but feasible idea is to use a special rogue deck with multiple Mutanus the Devourer (by playing LegacyShadowstep, Blackrock MountainGang Up, Scholomance AcademyLab Partner and so on). It has a chance of achieving this goal, probably only at low ranks, since it is rare to find a deck with a large number of big minions on a high rating.
