Overview and Strength:

Rain on your enemy with Hog Rider after Hog Rider with this quick 2.8 Elixir deck. This deck only has three 4 Elixir units: Hog Rider, Musketeer, and Fireball. You can cycle them out especially during double elixir time to have a swarm of hard hitting units in the arena.

The Strength of this deck is your ability to have Hog Riders doing offense every time. You can also easily do a counter with the Knight + Musketeer plus the Ice Spirit and Skeletons. You also have three spells that you can use whenever you need a direct hit or pull them away from your tower with the Tornado.

Card Roles:

  • Fireball - Use this heavy spell against clump of units countering or pushing towards your tower. You can use it together with the Tornado during double elixir time.
  • Hog Rider - Main win condition. Use him whenever you can to deal pressure and tower damage.
  • Ice Spirit - You can combine this cheap freeze spell together with your Hog Rider or Tornado.
  • Knight - The semi-tank of the deck. Use him in front of the Hog Rider to tank or with the Musketeer
  • Musketeer - Your ranged unit. She can deal a good amount of damage herself.
  • Skeletons - If you're facing an Inferno Tower, use them to distract it while your Hog Rider + Musketeer take it down.
  • Tornado - Great clutch spell deck. You can use it to pull away units who are trying to push towards your tower. You can also use them to put them in a clump for your Fireball.
  • Zap - The most usual counter for your Hog Rider is either the Skeleton Army or Goblin Gang. This can help you clear them away.

Clash Royale Strategy:

Ideal Strategy:

The Ideal Strategy of this deck is to have your trio of units Knight + Hog Rider + Musketeer. The Knight will tank for your Hog Rider and the Musketeer will take care of any units and probably deal tower damage if she connects. Cycle for another Hog Rider by using your cheap 1 elixir cards to make another push.

Offense:

You can either wait for your opponent to push or make your own quick push with the Knight + Hog Rider for a 7 elixir push. Your opponent will surely counter so use your Musketeer together with the Ice Spirit + Skeletons to cycle back to your Knight. Use your spells as necessary. Once you have your Hog Rider back, make another push.

Defense:

For defense, use the Knight along with the Ice Spirit. For tanky units, distract with the Skeletons and then use the Knight + Musketeer + Ice Spirit. If they're trying to make a beatdown push, use the Tornado + Fireball. Sometimes you need to add the Zap for the finish.

Weakness:

Although at 2.8 average elixirs, try not to over extend. Make sure to always have elixirs so you can deploy and cycle your units for defense. Since you have a lot of cheap units, sometimes you'll need a double Knight or Musketeer to match the opponent's push. Do not rush and be overly confident about your cheap deck. Always keep a couple of elixirs for defense.

Gameplay:

Watch Ash use this deck against a Mortar Deck and a Lava Hound Deck.

Overall:

Again, try not to over extend and be complacent about how fast you can cycle your cards. Be smart and try to keep some elixirs and cards for defense. You don't need to worry as for every cycle, you will get the Hog Rider for a quick and easy push.
