Using the Giant's high HP, plus the Hog Rider's ability to demolish towers, this Pushing Clash Royale Deck is certain to give you trophies!


The basic tank + push + support strategy is one that is already tried and tested. Even the current Clash Royale Champion uses a deck like this one. Adding the Hog Rider and the Bomb Tower means we have a unit for pushes and defense.


The most basic yet winning strategy will be at play on this deck the tanker + push + support. The Hog Rider's push for Crown Tower and the Bomb Tower formidable defense is where the strength of this deck lies. Aside from that many are familiar with troops like the Giant and the Mini Pekka. Utilizing them properly is something that anyone can do.

Pushing Deck:

Hog Rider Giant Bomb Tower Minion Horde
Hog Rider Giant Bomb Tower Minion Horde
Mini P.E.K.K.A Fireball Archers Spear Goblins
Mini P.E.K.K.A Fireball Archers Spear Goblins

Card Roles:

Archers: Your anti-flying unit! They can bring down Minions or even Baby Dragons as long as they are covered due to their squishy bodies. They cost 1 elixir unlike against Musketeers.

Bomb Tower: You can put them right in the middle of your base. The Bomb Tower will lure incoming troops. Alternatively, you can put them on one lane to provide direct defense against pushing units.

Fireball: This spell is best against Barbarians! One hit of this spell can soften a Barb real good. In this way, they can be killed by the tower in one hit each.

Giant: The tanker AKA meat shield of this Clash Royale Deck.

Hog Rider: With his speed and strength, he can demolish your opponent's crown tower  in seconds if he is shielded!

Mini P.E.K.K.A.: Great against tower locking units such as Hog Riders and Giants! Can also be used against the Prince.

Minion Horde: For a group of flying troops, they can be such a menace against ground troops that doesn't have any range!

Spear Goblins: They can do support or defense. For just 2 elixirs, these guys are really cheap and effective!

Battle Strategy:

As always, please try to wait until you have full elixir. Once you're at max, bring down your Giant beside your King Tower. Once he reaches the bridge, bring down your Spear Gobs for support. You want to wait until your enemy's troops are locked onto your Giant. That will be the time to bring down your Hog Rider. Let him finish your tanker's job of bringing down the tower!

During the 2-minute mark, your opponent has already started his push. Put your Bomb Tower right in the middle of the field to lure them and throw bombs at them. You can deploy your Archers + Spear Gobs for additional defense. If you feel like your opponent exhausted his elixir pool, try another push with the Giant + Hog Rider. You might want to have your Fireball ready for them to finish the job fast!

During double-elixir mark, continue with the Giant + Hog Rider push. Also, keep defending your turf with Minion Horde and Mini P.E.K.K.A. This will earn you either 1 crown, 2 crowns, or even 3! It depends on how you'll play the game and how your enemy defends his base. But with your Spell and tanker + push, this will be an easy three crown win for you!


The lack of Arrows on this deck against Minion Horde and Skeleton Army can be such a headache. Your opponent might drop them in front of your surging Giant + Hog Rider, and you are saving your Fireball against incoming Barbs. In that case, you can substitute it with Arrows, Mini P.E.K.K.A. with the Valk to have the same effect.
