Yeah, I can help with this.

Fight 1: You and Zeal Teleporter Network against a bunch of monks

The goal of this fight is to do just enough damage to the disgraced monk so that he dies after the teleporter network exhausts itself. The network's last charm does 6K damage to the reinforcements. Before that, anyone you kill will be revived at 100%. So you don't want to do too much damage, otherwise the monks will just keep coming back.
There's a hidden mechanic in this fight where summon charms cause the disgraced to get stunned if you play a summon after the network uses advantage.
So basically, you just need to tank (mostly melee) and tweak your deck so you kill the disgraced after the network exhausts.
Also, having charms that revive the network are great since it will kill the disgraced after it gets revived. Restore faith and salamath's judgement are great includes.

Fight 2: You and Djin vs Priest and Priestess of Rya'bal

This fight is really hard. Even with great decks, you're still at the mercy of the RNG devil here.
Key charms here are trailblazer, strike and magebane poison. Trailblazer combos with Code of Honor to give both players 10 WP and 50 heal. Strike combos with celestial sword to make celestial strike which gives a group cleanse (key because blight is a long duration spirit bane) and magebane poison cripples the priestess.
My usual tactics here actual use a few charms from a higher level dungeon that is easier to clear (lair of the artificer). I like to use banes and projection for this since the priest purges (sadness). Summons are out because the priestess puts a nasty summon on you which you absolutely do not want to extend. I really like to use poisonous fog and microgyne refractor in this fight.
Usually, the best bet is to kill the priest (spirit user) first and cripple the priestess with magebane poisons.

Fight 3: You and Djin vs Shade of Rya'baal

The key to this fight is combos and life loss. The shade loses 160 life from using contempt of fellowship if you've played a combo in the last 6 or so rounds. You want to short deck this. Combos are the same as the second fight, strike, trailblazer and the 25K crafts (like blade of betrayal, abyss, infusion of light). You can also include some other combos if you want like vita banishments. Next, you want some life loss charms like metal melt. I usually run about 25-30 charms for this fight.

Spoiler:
Strike x5
Crimson Devil x5
Trailblazer x5
Metal Melt x5
Accoutrement of Misery x5

Fight 4: You and Djin vs Rya'baal

Again, combos are the path to victory. This fight is extra crazy because there are combos that are triggered by other combos. You really really want to trigger the celestial strike combo combo in this fight because it let's you get through his armor. CPB doesn't work because rya'baal purges and gets 45 armor/ward per turn, so focus on debuffing, triggering combos and life loss charms. Taking away his auras helps too.

Sure thing, here are a few other Fight 2 decks. You can also do it with projection or cpb magic. The decks are maybe 20% reliable, so less than banes, but still plenty to blow through with a few tries. The trick is enough focus to knock off one guy fast. If you can get the spirit guy first, before he purges you too much or kills your spirit, then you're golden.

Assassin targeting lowest health (100% win rate)
Spoiler:
Selected gear: 60/62 charms
Strike x5
Trailblazer x5
Magebane Poison x5 - with very little focus, this is more likely to hit the right target
Poisonous Fog x5 - breaks focus & aoe, which is nice
Finishing Move x5
Violette's Roses x5
Assassinate x5
Ivory Needles x5
Flash Bomb x5
Release Karma x5
Ambush x5
Fury of the Elements x5 - not really necessary

Paladin using mostly projection:
Spoiler:
Selected gear: 62/62 charms
Trailblazer x5
Strike x5
Magebane Poison x5
Microgyne Refractor x5
Ruler's Helm x5
Blinding Faith x5
Fury of the Elements x5
Imbue Armor x5 - amazing if you're using armor projection
Grallan's Rancor x1
Accoutrement of Misery x3
Soul Cleanse x5
Staff of the Eclipse x3
Hammer of Retribution x5
Nature's Claw x5

Slayer using mostly magic:
Spoiler:
Selected gear: 62/62 charms
Ice Spikes x5
Dawn's Melody x2
Lightflake x5
Enhancing Light x5
Cold Deeps x5
Spark x5
Glorious Ice Staff x5
Ice Scabbard x4
Demon Heart x5
Icy Winds x5
Trailblazer x5
Strike x5

Warden, again mostly projection deck:
Spoiler:

Strike x5
Magebane Poison x5
Trailblazer x5
Grallan's Rancor x1
Microgyne Refractor x5
Poisonous Fog x4

Does anyone have any hints regarding how to get the achievement?

The closest I've gotten so far to winning fight 4 without triggering a combo was by using banes, but Sign of Algorab may be necessary unless you're a Slayer and can purge the ongoing +magic. Is there another way that might work that I'm missing?

So banes it is... Poisoner's Pride is another charm I can't use yet, though.
