Overview and Strength:

CLASHwithSHANE made a deck so good that Supercell noticed it and made it the Deck of the Week! It's a 3.3 Cannon Cart Miner Control deck. The idea of this deck is to have the Miner tank for your Minions plus other surviving support cards.

The strength of this deck is the perfect synergy of the cards. The Furnace is used to lure tower locking troops as well as to provide AoE and chip damage to a tower. Added with the Miner's direct damage together with the Minions and the Fire Spirits from the Furnace you can deal a huge chunk of damage.

Ideal Strategy:

The Ideal Strategy of this deck is to have the Miner tank for your Minions and additional support cards such as the Cannon Cart and Fire Spirits. You can also have the Poison around him if you feel like it's valuable, like it will hit another tower and counter units. The Furnace will continue to pump out Fire Spirits until it decays helping you get rid of pushes.


Always start by placing your Furnace in the middle of your base. It will act as a lure as well as deal chip damage with its Fire Spirits. Wait for your opponent to make a push and counter as necessary. Use the Miner along with the Minions and then Cannon Cart for an extreme push. You can also plant the Poison if you can.


Use your Furnace as a tank. The Cannon Cart and your Electro Wizard are your main counter units. Backed up by Fire Spirits and Zap you can easily eliminate intruders. If you already mastered the use of the Cannon Cart, the Electro Wizard or Zap will retarget the opponent and focus on the Cart. It will give you time to replenish your elixirs and deal more damage.


In the gameplay video below, CLASHwithSHANE faced a Golem + Elite Barbarians deck and a Three Musketeers swarm deck. The weakness of this deck is misplacement of cards. You need to know where to effectively place your units to make an effective comeback. Do not over reach, sometimes you just need to deploy a naked Miner to deal damage and save your elixirs for counters. You can also save your Poison against the Minion Horde and not use it together with your push.


CLASHwithSHANE made it to Clash Royale's deck of the week with this fast Cannon Cart Control deck. Check out how he uses the cards and his placements in this video.

Final Thoughts:

I would love to try this deck out as soon as I have a good leveled Cannon Cart. Too bad I wasn't able to unlock one during the Cannon Cart 2v2 Draft Challenge as 2 of my random partners disconnected in the game. If you're into cycle decks and you have the required legendaries in this deck, try it out. The Clash Royale team didn't choose this deck for nothing!
