3.1 Ice Hog Cycle Deck for Arena 10 and Above
An effective cycle deck that even Arena 5 (with Ice Wizard unlocked) players can rock in the arena.

This article had a major update on .

Overview and Strength:

Even though the Rocket challenge is finished, this Ice Wizard + Hog Rider cycle deck is still rocking the arena. It is so fast that you can land a bunch of Ice Wizards and Mega Minions to defend and to support your Hog Rider.

The strength of this deck is its ability to cycle really fast. You also have three spells that you can use whenever you see fit. With its fast cycle, you can easily counter units and make a fast Hog Rider roll.

3.1 Ice Hog Cycle Deck:

Card Roles:

  • Hog Rider - He is your bread and butter. You can send him all naked or together with your support units after they've successfully defended your base.
  • Ice Wizard - Main defense unit. You can use him together with the Tornado to give him more time and have the tower archers help out.
  • Mega Minion - Another defense unit. Use it together with the Ice Wizard.
  • Rocket - Great spell card to eliminate a push. Make sure you know how to calculate their elixirs to get a positive elixir trade. You can also aim at their slow push and also target their tower.
  • Skeletons - Cycle card and you can also use them to lure, distract, and chip damage.
  • The Log - Pushes back opponents. It can also give time to your Ice Wizard.
  • Tombstone - Lures units in the middle of the base and explodes into Skeletons. Perfect building against P.E.K.K.As.
  • Tornado - Pulls units to, again, give your Ice Wizard time. You can also use it against Balloons and pull them in the middle of your base to activate both archers.

Clash Royale Strategy:

Ideal Strategy:

The Ideal Strategy of this deck is to go aggressive. You can even send the Hog Rider naked and do a predictive The Log. Learn what cards your opponent has to counter him and have your troops ready. Use the Ice Wizard and Mega Minion to defend. Plant the Tombstone if needed. Use the Rocket if there are any nearby troop/s around his/her tower or when his/her units are clumped together. The Tornado is there to either pull units away to give your Ice Wizard time or to pull them in the middle of your base to activate both tower archers.

Offense:

Go aggressive. If you have the Hog Rider right off the bat, use him naked. You can use a predictive The Log if you want. Wait for your opponent to counter and use your two support units. Once done, go for another Hog Rider push.

Defense:

Use the Tornado to pull their Hog Rider and activate your king tower. For everything else, use the Ice Wizard, Mega Minion, and Skeletons. For tankier units, use the Tombstone together with the Ice Wizard and Tornado to have both tower archers activated.

Weakness:

As I've played this deck in my own ladder matches in Arena 10, I found it hard to counter Inferno Dragons. Since you don't have Zap or Electro Wizard, you can use the Skeletons or the Tombstone to distract them and have the Ice Wiz and Mega Minion finish it off. Facing a Minion Horde can also pose a problem. You can use the Tornado with the Ice Wizard or just the Ice Wizard alone.

Gameplay:

CWA is very proud to introduce this video as he finally found an Ice Wizard deck that you can use in the arena. He also uses it in his own ladder matches and shared that he won straight wins with a bunch of draws.

Final Overview:

You can easily pull a draw in this deck. if you think that you don't have a chance in winning, you can use all your spells and just cycle through your Ice Wizard, Mega Minion, Tornado, and Tombstone. Your opponent will have a hard time penetrating your defense. Since I've played this in my own ladder matches, I will usually get 1 crown and just defend all the way.
