Overview and Strength:

This deck is more like a Miner + Poison control with the ability to do a counter-push and give your opponent pressure with the P.E.K.K.A. You can go for a Miner + Bats push while leaving the rest of your cards on defense.

The strength of this deck is its ability to cycle fast and start a new push right away. You'll be surprised how many P.E.K.K.As you can drop, especially during double elixir time. While he/she is busy with your P.E.K.K.A counter, sneak in with a Miner + Bats FTW!

Card Roles:

  • Bats - Cheap and effective flying units. Use them like how you use the Minions with the Miner or use them for defense.
  • Electro Wizard - Useful unit to stun. He is perfect against Infernos.
  • Ice Spirit - Cycle card. You can use it to start your push by dropping it at the bridge for a chip damage.
  • Miner - Win condition card. You can use it together with the Bats or your usual Miner + Poison strategy.
  • P.E.K.K.A - Another win condition card. Use it defensively against tanks. You can then push the other lane with your Miner.
  • Poison - A spell for both defense and offense. You can use it together with your Miner or fpr defemse ahaomst swarms for your P.E.K.K.A.
  • Skeletons - Great and cheap units to cycle and also to lure and distract.
  • Zap - Just in case your Electro Wizard is too busy or there are a bunch of swarms coming your way, a handy Zap will help.

Clash Royale Strategy:

Ideal Strategy:

The Ideal Strategy of this game is you go Miner + Bats for offense or Miner + Poison. Your P.E.K.K.A is there to defend and to give your opponent major pressure. Usually, they will defend your P.E.K.K.A with swarm units, this is where you can use your Poison defensively. You can then tank your P.E.K.K.A with a Miner and go for another kill.


Start slowly by deploying your cheap units like the Skeletons or Ice Spirit at the bridge. You then wait for your opponent's push and counter it with your P.E.K.K.A. It is either you charge on the same lane with Miner + Bats or go to the other lane. This decision depends if you feel like the opponent is trying to defend your P.E.K.K.A and he/she already exhausted his/her elixirs.


Defense is quite easy, although you don't have powerful spells like the Fireball, Lightning or Rocket use your cheap units to lure. Your P.E.K.K.A will one shot any counters as long as she's not distracted.


I am currently using this deck in my own ladder matches in Arena 10 - Hog Mountain. The only weakness this deck has is with Lava-Loon decks. You only have your Electro Wizard and Bats to counter flying units. Usually, the opponent has Zap or Arrows against your Bats. What you need to do is you need to keep both of them to counter this kind of push. If you're facing a Balloon, put down the Bats on top so they won't get distracted by the Lava Hound.

Final Overview:

This deck is fun to use! Aside from the Giant Double Minions Deck and the classic Night Giant Beatdown Deck by Chief Pat that I'm using, this deck is pretty effective. You just have to play passively and go for a Miner + Bats push whenever you can.
