Any troop that is well covered (with Skeletons) can bring down a Tower in a snap. We'll teach you how!


If you're just new to the game or just downloaded Clash Royale on your phone, we'd love to welcome you aboard! Aside from the first timer confusion, you probably don't know what cards to put in your Deck. Don't worry we are here to help.

This Bone Barrier Deck from goldbond_shaq that we found on Reddit will make you look like a pro in Arena 2.


This 3.4 Elixir Deck boasts of having two of the most used card on the early Arenas - Mini P.E.K.K.A. and the Prince. Since they do a lot of damage to anything on their path, they are surely the most favored unit by beginners. Aside from the chunky 4 and 5 Elixir cards, it also has the cheapest 1 Elixir card - Skeletons! That do a lot of damage if used correctly.

Card Roles:

Average Elixir: 3.4

Archers & Spear Goblins: They will be your troops against Baby Dragons. They can also be a good card against counterattacks.

Arrows: Skeleton Armies are no match to these Arrows.

Giant: He will be your tanker, not just on Arena 2, but many Arenas to follow.

Mini P.E.K.K.A.:  He doesn't have enough HP. However, he is strong enough to destroy Crown Towers if shielded properly.

Musketeer: Equipped with a high fire power, she can destroy any flying and ground troops alike.

Prince: He is fast in crossing the middle bridge and also fast in crushing Crown Towers if he is tanked by a Giant.

Skeletons: They will be your main support against any counter troops on the game.

Battle Strategy:

Patience is the key on this game so you have to wait until your Elixir bar is full before you deploy any troops. Once it's at max, put your Giant at the back of your Crown Tower. Wait until he reaches the middle bridge. Your combo here will be Giant + Musketeer + Skeletons. You have to put your Giant in front, Musketeer in the middle, and Skeletons at the back . This is just in case another troop attacks her from behind. If ever they attack in front, the Skeletons will move forward to do damage.

At the 2 minute mark, change the Musketeer with a Prince or a Mini P.E.K.K.A. to do extra damage on a Tower. Always put them at the back of your tanker so they will not receive any damage. Then, do the Bone Barrier with the Skeletons once they're already placed.

During double elixir time, do a lot of pushing by always putting your Tanker near the middle bridge and putting either a Prince, Mini P.E.K.K.A. or a Musketeer and top it off with Skeletons. Archers and Spear Goblins will take care any pushing towards your Arena.


This deck covers both air and ground troops. However, one glaring weakness it might have is when you become impatient. You don't want to pull out a Prince with 5 elixirs without any tankers or you will just waste those 5 precious ones. Always put tankers in front and offense troops at the back and if you can, add support too!
