A Complete Set

When trying to complete this, I find it easiest to merge each of the elements, then a single achievement first. If you can get the Philosopher's Stone early, then you just need to acquire the equipment you need from the market and they will come directly in play. This can lead to an early second achievement and victory. 

If you can't get the Philosopher's Stone, then look for the easy to merge Endless Forge or Electricity to make it much easier to acquire the more expensive Vial and Lens. Get the Lens as early as possible, as well as at least one Furnace. You will need to create a lot of resources in order to claim victory with this objective.

As for resource management, max out your earth resources first to accelerate air and water production. Make a couple of fire elements to generate card advantage to dig through your deck. This objective takes a lot of focus to use your labor points efficiently, so think about trashing starters early and acquiring a few advantage cards along the way.
