Predicted Popular Cards:

One is the Hog Rider because of his speed and his focus on destroying the tower. So you have to watch out for cycle and bait decks. Second is Giant beatdown cycle decks. In this meta, you'll notice that there are a lot of players using a quick Giant + Musketeer + Mini P.E.K.K.A deck. Third is the Golem with the Prince, a mighty combo. Fourth is the P.E.K.K.A. This last popular card may be for players who are into counter and punish decks.

Must Haves:

You must have Arrows or Fireball or even both! You don't need to worry about facing an Inferno Dragon or a Sparky in this challenge but get ready for beatdowns and Hog cycles.

Possible Decks:

New Trifecta Cycle Deck for Arena 5 to 12 No Legendary Ultimate Counter Deck for Arena 5 and Tournaments
New Trifecta made for this meta!
Deck that can counter any deck in the arena!
No Legendary Baby-Loon Prince Deck for Arena 5 Giant Splash Deck for Arena 5
Deck that has 3 win condition cards!
A good counter to counter-push deck!

Retro Royale Rewards:

In Retro Royale, even if you lose you can compete again. You just need to complete 10 crowns and you're going to Modern Royale.

  • 4 Crowns → x250 Gold
  • 7 Crowns → x500 Gold
  • 10 Crowns → x1000 Gold

Best Tips to Win Modern Royale:

Tornado Zappies

Predicted Popular Cards:

We predict a lot of players will either use the Mega Knight + Skeleton Barrel combo or the Bandit and Battle Ram bridge spam. Elite Barbarians are also a crowd favorite. Furnace may also be in the list as a defense/offense building.

Must haves:

You really have to have an Electro Wizard or Zappies in your deck! The Modern Royale doesn't have Zap available so you may face a Sparky or an Inferno Dragon.

Possible Decks:

Modern Royale Rewards:

Unlike Retro Royale that you just need to get crowns, in Modern Royale you have to get 6 wins before 3 loses to get the prize.

  • 1 Win → x50 Skeleton Barrel
  • 3 Wins → x20 Zappies
  • 5 Wins → x3 Hunters
  • 6 Wins → x1 Epic Chest


A lot of players got disappointed about the Anniversary Challenge Clash Royale is giving this weekend. Not a lot of rewards to gain. But who knows, this is may be just a primer to what they'll give us in the next week. Probably a free legendary draft chest? or Chest sales? Let us just enjoy the Challenge while it last and hope for a better celebration in the next few days.
