This bait/cycle/swarm deck is a perfect set of cards for people who likes to play it nasty! Here’s a custom deck made by Bufarete Gaming that is useful in tournaments and can also be handy in ladder rankings.


These cards are strong against slow push decks like the Lava Hound, Giant and Golem decks. It can also do well when dealing with bait swarms and Hog Cycle decks in the game.

Card Roles:

  • Minion Horde- Technically, your main tower destroyer. Along with the 3-elixir Minions, this card will be so much deadly if left ignored.
  • Minions- Your additional support/attacker. Plays a vital role like the Minion Horde in this deck.
  • Miner - Your main tank in this deck. Distract your enemy’s towers/troops to let your Minion Squad reach your main target.
  • Ice Golem - Used in both offense and defense. Use its ability to lure, kite and distract incoming troops and counters effectively.
  • Heal - Cast this spell after your enemy exhausts their counterspells early. Surprise them as much as possible to avoid putting its use to waste.
  • The Log - Kill ground swarmers swiftly. You can also use this to distract and buy time against big threats like the Elite Barbarians. Drop the Ice Golem and other units to kite and kill them afterwards.
  • Mirror - Copy your used units after your enemy used their counter cards.

Clash Royale Strategy:

Ideal Strategy:

The ideal strategy of this deck is by baiting the enemy with your chosen card and force them to counter it early. Once successful, you can make a strong offensive strategy with the Miner. Heal your Minions along with the support units to prolong their existence while wrecking towers.


For a cheap and early pressure strategy, use the Miner with the Minions attack. Prepare your Arrows to kill low HP troops that will counter your combo.

Other effective strategies are the Ice Golem with the Minion Horde or Minions. Let the Ice Golem tank and counter the enemy’s units with The Log or Arrows. Prepare the Heal Spell and cast it if you are sure that you can secure a crown in a specific attack. Cycle your cards and repeat the strategies depending on your enemy’s move.


For defense, all cards are handy. While dealing with a slow push deck, you can cast the Minion Horde to bait the enemy to counter it. Once they killed the Horde, cast another one with the Mirror. If there are support units behind their tank, distract it with the Ice Golem or with the Miner. If swarm card is used, cast the Arrows or the Log to wipe them out.

Create a counter push out of your live units. Prepare and cast the Heal Spell afterwards.

Additional Tip:

Do not be afraid to offer your Minions/Minion Horde as a bait. It is necessary for you to create a strong counter towards the enemy’s.

Once 60-second mark starts, you can freely create a bunch of attacks with your cards.

PS: If you are having a hard time with some of the cards, you can switch the Mirror for a building unit (e.g Furnace, Inferno Tower, etc.) and the Ice Golem for a Knight, just like what Bufarete advised in his video.


The deck will be in trouble against Spell or Splasher decks. If facing a lot these kinds of decks, better switch some cards like we recommend in our additional tip strategy.
