I need 5 medals. I would love to unlock the last 5 maps, but I just don't see it ever happening given how long it would take me to even attempt. I need 50 more victories to earn the Victor Among Victors, which is way too much. I also need Solitary Swordsman (3-on-1 match) medal which seems way too difficult and luck dependent (haven't seen any really good strategies for this either). I'm sure I would be pulling hair out over this one.
The last three I need would probably be more manageable, but really tedious and annoying: Exiler of Existence (this wouldn't be too bad except that I only have one Death Gaze), Wind Rider, and Protector of the Earth (I've got 2 powder eaters, and 3 Gooba Queens, but these seem like painful medals to even attempt).
I figure it's not worth getting any of them unless I intend to get all, so my medal hunting days are probably over...

Thumpasaurus- The Solitary Swordsman is really pretty easy, I think I wrote the strategy I used for it on here, Ill double check, if not Ill later repost.
Oh- I need 9 more, Im still doing random battles to get all the items/spells, still havent done the under 20 battle, I only have one battle gear alpha and one beta, The Denizen of the sanctuary gives me nightmares to even try to attempt- and the powder eater one, after how mercilessly frustrating the gooba one was, I need more recoup time!
You'll get $10 bucks if you admit to wearing briefs, $20 if you can prove it. PM me for details.

The only 1vs3 strategy I saw that seemed pretty effective was one using Catastrophes and Life Streams, but I don't have enough Catastrophes for this to be very easy. I suppose I could make it work with the 2 I've got, but I haven't tried. I didn't see a strategy posted by you, so go ahead and repost if you like (maybe in the Solitary Swordsman thread would be best). I'm sure it would be appreciated, as this is one of the trickier medals.
I doubt I'll bother to try for it though. Like I said, I need 5 more, and there isn't much point in going for any of them unless I try for ALL of them. And considering I can't see any way that I'm going to play 50 more battles against the CPU for Victor Among Victors, it's rather moot for me.
BTW, I too saw Denizen of the Sanctuary as a pretty daunting medal, but I managed to get it on my first try. It's really not too hard (see my post in the Denizen thread for details if you like). Having 3-4 coins of piety and some Aurora spells is important though.
P.S. I tried the Powder Eater medal once, and stopped the match midway through, it was so annoying. Those Gooba and Powder Eater medals are truly painful, and likely medals I will never earn as well...
UPDATE: WhoseYerLilith I saw your posting on the 2on1/3on1 thread. That's basically the same strategy I used to earn 2on1, but I still believe that a fair amount of luck is involved in winning the match that way with 3 opponents. I think I'd be more inclined to try to earn 1 or 2 more Catastrophes and try that method. But again, I'm not inclined to try at this point anyway...
When i batle 1 vs 3 was in fact, preety easy! I just put one kelpie in dunnan against Whirlwind, Gamygin, and Mullyn. Gamygin dont have much creatures that can land on water, Whirlwind dont use magic, almost never, and Mullyn, well, she is not such a challenge! Hope i helped...
