Check out what's new in the September 3, 2018 Balance Update!
Overview and Strength:
Due to recent Balance Changes, the meta completely shifted from beatdown decks to siege archetypes decks. This is where Surgical Goblin's new deck shines. He included four of the newly buffed cards into one deck and won a grand challenge.

The strength of this deck is the X-Bow. It can continuously punish the opponent's tower or go on full defense whenever you need it. It is only at 3.0 average elixir too so you can easily cycle through another card and get a pair of units working together.
|Bats||Fireball||Ice Golem||Ice Spirit|
|Ice Wizard||Mini P.E.K.K.A||The Log||X-Bow|
- Bats - They are cheap and effective. Use them with the Ice Golem. The Ice Golem will tank while the Bats do their work.
- Fireball - Sometimes you need the Fireball to win the game. You can also use it against units trying to take down your X-Bow.
- Ice Golem - Main tanker of your deck. Drop it down to give your Bats and other units a tank. It can also get rid of low HP units.
- Ice Spirit - Can chip away a Minions/Minion Horde's HP or Freeze units for your Bats.
- Ice Wizard - With the recent buff, he can now one shot Skeletons from the Graveyard. It will now be easier for him to get rid of the Minions/Minion Horde too.
- Mini P.E.K.K.A - Tank destroyer. Use her to counter against chunky units or Hog Riders.
- The Log - Pushes back units away from your X-Bow.
- X-Bow - Main win condition. Play it offensively by putting it near the bridge or defensively by dropping it in the middle of your base.
Clash Royale Strategy:
The Ideal Strategy of this deck is to play it passively. You don't want to go on full offense right away as you still don't know what cards your opponent has. The formula for this deck is to defend and then punish with the X-Bow at the bridge together with the remaining units.
Sometimes you need to place the X-Bow on the other lane just to split the opponent's push.
With this deck, since you don't have a heavy tanker, play it real slow. Learn your opponent's deck and counter and then go for an X-Bow. The trick here is to wait for your opponent to push and then after countering, drop the X-Bow along with the remaining units.
This deck is more on defense. Use the Ice Golem to tank and then put the Bats to deal an incredible amount of damage. You can use the Ice Wizard against swarms and Graveyards and Mini P.E.K.K.A for tankers. Once you've already took down a tower, you can place your X-Bow in the middle of the base for defense.
Since you only have your Bats, Ice Spirit, and Ice Wizard to combat against aerial troops, units such as Lava Hound and Balloon or most commonly known as Lava-Loon is pretty hard to counter. What Surgical Goblin did was to place the X-Bow on offense whenever the opponent tries to push with a Lava Hound. You will then have cheap units to cycle and swarm the Lava Hound and Balloon. Have the Ice Golem tank for the lava pups and the Ice Wizard and Bats will finish them off.
Watch how Surgical Goblin recovered from facing a Lava-Loon deck and winning the game and the rest of the grand challenge.
Due to the recent Balance Change, the meta was shaken and players try to cope and create new decks. With the X-Bow and Mortar trying to get back in the arena, expect to see counter decks against it like Swarms or probably a hut deck?
