Ash's Hog-Yard Deck:

2016-09-20-06-43-53-Ice_Golem.PNG 2016-09-19-00-47-23-mega_minion.PNG tombstone.png zap.png

Clash Royale Strategy:

Start by deploying your Archers at the back of your King Tower. Once they reach the bridge, now is the time to place your Hog Rider. Place the Graveyard spell once he already countered it. You might think that the opponent already countered the gif image above but the Hog Rider + Archers got rid of the Inferno Tower. The right Tower Archer is busy with the Skeletons leaving the Archers enough time to deal massive damage to his right tower. If your opponent starts to do his own push, lure them with the Tombstone. Your Mega Minion should be ready as well. Place the Tombstone right in the middle of your arena where both of your Tower Archers can reach the intruder. The Mega Minion will finish the deed.

Tornado Lightning The Log Tombstone
2016-10-30-15-06-52-Tornado.PNG lightning.png TheLog.png tombstone.png

Clash Royale Strategy:

The ideal Clash Royale strategy of this deck is by dropping the Tombstone early. Do this after your elixir reaches 10. If it’s not in your initial cards, you can try to wait for your enemy’s initial attack. If fighting against a slow-push deck, initially drop your Archers near the King’s Tower. Implement this before the enemy’s tank reaches the river. Wait for a splasher behind it before dropping your Mega Minion. Cycle until you get the Tombstone and drop it to lure the enemy’s units. If available, use the Lightning Spell against the opponent’s team. Take note that you must only do this if a strong support (no Skeletons, Goblins, etc) is within its range to perfectly hit your target. After defending, regain the elixir you need to make a strong comeback.

lightning.png TheLog.png 2016-11-01-08-15-19-MegaMinionCard.png tombstone.png

Clash Royale Strategy:

The ideal startup with this deck is having the Tombstone in the initial card draw. After your elixir reaches 10, drop the Tombstone in the center of your base. Else, wait for your enemy to make the first move. Let them create a big push for you to counter. Use your units accordingly to stop the opponent’s threat. If playing against a Hog Rider, drop the Archers behind for counter. Let them cross the river as you prepare for a bigger push in the next few seconds. This strategy can also be done against slow-push decks. If the Lava Hound is not yet available, cycle it by dropping the Mega Minion or Minions near your King Tower. Let your enemy create their second big push.

Fireball Clone Tombstone Archers
fireball.png clone.png tombstone.png archers.png

Clash Royale Strategy:

Wait until your elixir reaches max before deploying anything. If you have a Lava Hound on your hand, deploy it at the back of your crown tower. It is best to keep pressuring the opponent so he is forced to respond. Deploy a Mega Minion at the back of the Lava Hound to support it. Ready your Miner to stop potential counter units like Princess. Use Fireball if he deploys Minion Horde. Once the Lava Hound is locked on to the tower. Clone the Lava Hound (including other units), and watch how it can devastate a tower so easily. Ideally, the Lava Hound can tank the cloned one so they can do more damage in the long run.

Mega Minion Musketeer Arrows Zap
2016-11-01-08-15-19-MegaMinionCard.png musketeer.png arrows.png zap.png

Clash Royale Strategy:

Make the initial move by dropping the Giant once your elixir reaches 10. Place it behind the King’s Tower to accumulate the elixir you need later. Wait until your enemy makes a move. If the enemy creates an aggressive push, drop theBowler or the Tombstone behind or near the targeted tower. As your Giant approaches the river, prepare to use the Mega Minion or Arrows. Use the Mega Minion if ground units are dropped (e.g Barbarians), Splashers or the enemy’s Mega Minion. This is to help the Bowler annihilate ground hindrances quick. Utilize the Arrows against air units like the Minions and the Minion Horde.

archers.png 2016-09-20-06-43-53-Ice_Golem.PNG zap.png fireball.png

Clash Royale Strategy:

The ideal strategy for this deck is having the Electro Wizard and Elite Barbarians early. Start the game by placing the Electro Wizard behind the King Tower after your elixir reaches 10. Let them pass your Crown Tower as you prepare for the Elite Barbarians for deployment. Drop the Elite Barbarians in front of the Electro Wizard. Prepare your Zap if the enemy casts a counter card, preferably against the Skeleton Army. This is to ensure that any of your units deployed will somehow reach your targeted tower. Prepare for a defensive strategy after the first clash.

Ice Spirit or Ice Golem Inferno Tower Fireball Zap
IceSpirit.png inferno_tower.png fireball.png zap.png

Clash Royale Strategy:

The ideal strategy of this deck is to successfully form the Bowler Graveyard squad in a single push. To do this, you must wait for your elixir to reach 10 before making a move. Wait for your enemy’s move and counter it accordingly. If a slow push combo is incoming, let their bulky troop pass their crown tower before deploying the Bowler. Place this unit behind the King Tower to build further elixir. If air units are behind, cast the Fireball quick. On the other hand, you can Zap the Skarmy or low HP troops if needed. Drop the Inferno Tower afterwards. Let your Bowler roam in the enemy’s lair as you wait for your elixir to load up. Once you cycled back the Bowler, perform the steps below to win a tower.

Mega Minion Ice Spirit Zap Fireball
2016-09-19-00-47-23-mega_minion.PNG IceSpirit.png zap.png fireball.png

Clash Royale Strategy:

Rush the enemy by making your first Hog Rider with Ice Golem combo attack its tower. Use Zap if the enemy drops down a Minion Horde or Minions above your duo. This will buy your units time to get extra hits from the enemy’s tower. If they use a Skeleton Army, let the Ice Golem explodes to kill them all. Save your elixir for the incoming counter push after. If you face a slow-push deck, wait for them to form a team as you build your counter measures. Drop the Electro Wizard behind the King tower for the initial move. Knowing that supporting units are at the back of a bulky unit, killing it first is recommended. Prepare the Elite Barbarians in this situation. Place them in the middle of the incoming threats. Let the E-Barbs target the support first, as your Electro Wizard stuns the tank in front of them.

The Log Ice Golem Fireball Archers
TheLog.png 2016-09-20-06-43-53-Ice_Golem.PNG fireball.png archers.png

Clash Royale Strategy:

At the start of the match, make sure to have max elixirs before deploying anything. If you have an Ice Golem in your hand, deploy it at the back of your King's Tower. Once the Ice Golem is near the bridge, deploy the Hog Rider at the back of your Ice Golem. Ready The Log to sweep away potential counter units. Ideally, the Hog Rider can hit the tower at least two to three times and it is already a huge damage on the tower's health.

Defensively, always ready your Elite Barbarians since they are your main defensive unit alongside the Archers and Mega Minion. Use Tornado to pull back tanks like Giant and Golem. Use Fireball if the opponent's troops are either Minion Horde or Barbarians.

Skeleton Army Fireball Furnace Tombstone
skeleton_army.png fireball.png furnace.png tombstone.png

Clash Royale Strategy:

Create an early pressure by dropping the Furnace in the center of your base. Let the Fire Spirits damage a tower effortlessly. Wait for your enemy’s counter units before dropping your Hog Rider combo. If nothing happens after a few seconds, make a slow push by dropping the Archers behind your Crown Tower. Before it reaches the river, deploy the Hog with the Minions above it. Let them clash as you wait for your elixir to load up once again. Prepare for defense afterwards. If an incoming unit is a tank, lure it at the middle of your lair by using the Tombstone. Prepare Fireball if a swarm of units are supporting it.
