Overview and Strength:

This deck is getting a lot of attention as a lot of popular Youtubers have been using it for Trophy pushing. In this version of the deck, we are going to use SirTag's as he uses the Minions instead of Bats to make them more resilient against the Zap spell.

This deck's strength is its ability to cycle for another Hog Rider and Princess. The average elixir cost is only 3.1 and if you replace the Minions with Bats, it will go down to 3.0. With the Rocket's high damage, you can always use it to easily chip at the opponent's tower to grab a crown.

Card Roles:

  • Hog Rider - Main tower destroyer of the deck. You can pair him with the Ice Golem, Ice Spirit, Princess, and even the Minions.
  • Ice Golem - Main tanker of the deck. Use him to soak damage while your other units are trying to bring them down. You can also use him as a kite.
  • Ice Spirit - Cycle card and also a cheap Freeze spell.
  • Mini P.E.K.K.A - Mini tank destroyer. Use her against tankers such as Giants and the like.
  • Minions - You can pair them with your Hog Rider or use them against flying troops or Infernos.
  • Princess - Spam a number of Princesses and you're good. She has a wide and long range that can protect your Hog Rider against swarms.
  • Rocket - Deal breaker. You can use it to stop pushes or aim directly at their crown tower to win the game.
  • The Log - Pushes back troops. You can use Zap as a replacement.

Clash Royale Strategy:

Ideal Strategy:

The Ideal Strategy of this deck is to place as many Princess as you can and cycle your cards for a Hog Rider push. Get good value on your Rocket as it lands. Make sure to damage any troops or building nearby. Partner your Hog Rider with either the Ice Spirit, Hog Rider, Princess, or Minions. Sometimes, you can go for a naked Hog Rider push if the opponent's elixir count is low.


Always drop the Princess at the back. With that strategy, you can regain your lost elixirs and check what counters your opponent has. Drop the Hog Rider in the same lane with another support card. If the opponent tries to do a slow beatdown push, push in the opposite lane to split his/her troops.


Your main ground defense here is the Mini P.E.K.K.A. The Minions are for air units. Use as many Princesses as you can and make sure to spread them out. You don't want them to get value for their The Log or Arrows.


Since this deck doesn't have any Zap, the Inferno Tower can be a nuisance. Use the Minions against it together with the Princess. If you're facing against a heavy deck, always push in the opposite lane to split their troops. Use the Princess's long range and your other support cards.

Watch how SirTag uses his own version of this quick Hog - Rocket cycle deck against hard to counter decks with buildings and Barbarians.

Final Overview:

The main strategy here is to quickly cycle your Princess and Hog Rider for value. You can easily chip away crown tower HP and just use the Rocket to finish the game. As SirTag shares, try to push in the opposite lane if the opponent tries to bring out his/her tankers.
