Clash Royale Strategy:

Wait for your elixir to reach 10 before dropping the Lava Hound behind the King Tower. Before it reaches the river, deploy the Baby Dragon behind it. Wait for the enemy’s answer before dropping the next unit. If an Inferno Tower is not seen, drop the Mega Minion behind these two flying unit. This team is hard to counter making it an effective way to wreck a tower. Wait for the enemy to drop a range unit behind before letting go your Miner. This will halt the enemy’s counter if you successfully stop their units. It is important to have your Baby Dragon and Mega Minion together to annihilate horde of troops like the (Barbarians or Minion Horde) swiftly. Before the Lava Hound explodes, these two flying units will be in charge for further damage against the enemy’s tower. Repeat the combo and take precautionary measure all throughout the battle.

The Log Furnace Lightning Ice Spirit
TheLog.png furnace.png lightning.png IceSpirit.png

Clash Royale Strategy:

The ideal strategy of this Clash Royale deck is to get the Furnace early in the game. You can use this as a base structure to make a stronger push. You can let your enemy make the first move as you prepare your units for a counter push strategy. You may counter any incoming threats(ground) by using the Guards; while on aerial units use the Archers or Mega Minion. After defending, you may now put your Royal Giant on the arena depending on your available support. Less support means a lesser chance of effective push. If this happens, wait for your elixir to max and start the mashup. If you did not get the Furnace in the first shuffle, make a slow push with the Archers to cycle your cards. This will also pressure your enemy to drop and make the first move. You may now start your counter strategy in this situation.

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.

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.

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.

Valkyrie Poison Spell Zap Inferno Tower
valkyrie.png poison.png zap.png inferno_tower.png

Clash Royale Strategy:

At the start of the match, wait until your elixir reaches max. This deck utilizes a trifecta push so it is quite straightforward. Drop the Musketeer at the back of your tower. Once she reaches the front, opponent usually deploys his troops on the other side. Ready your Valkyrie or Inferno Tower depending on the units that he drops. If he drops a tank like Giant or Royal Giant, deploy the Inferno Tower first. If it is a quick push like Hog Rider with low HP units, deploy Goblins in front of your tower and use The Log or Zap to stop the low HP units. Make sure The Log reaches the crown tower so it can get damaged a little bit. You can create a counter push with this since your opponent will be forced to counter the Musketeer on the other side.

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.

fireball.png giant.png 2016-09-19-00-47-23-mega_minion.PNG minions.png
Prince The Log Tombstone Zap
prince.png TheLog.png tombstone.png zap.png

Clash Royale Strategy:

Just like your classic tanker + push + support, start with the Giant at the back of your King's Tower once at max elixirs. Drop the Prince at the back of the King Tower once the Giant is already near the bridge. The last troop to be added to your push will be the Mega Minion. Have your Log or Zap ready to get rid of any retaliation. During the mid game, plant the Tombstone at the middle of your arena. You will have a stead stream of Skeletons and at the same time lures the intruders away from your tower. Have your Minions ready to counter incoming enemy troops. You can also start a slow push with the Giant + Prince on the other lane to slowly and probably win another Crown Tower.

Hog Rider Musketeer Three Musketeers Valkyrie
hog_rider.png musketeer.png three_musketeers.png valkyrie.png

Clash Royale Strategy:

On this GIF image, Galadon countered Clash on Gan's Archers that is why there is no Hog Rider behind the Valkyrie. Since the Tower Archer is already locked on to the Valk, deploy the Graveyard. They will whittle down the tower in no time. During the mid game, your opponent might start to push. Counter it with the Three Musketeers. Make sure your foe is not packing a Fireball! Once your enemy troops are completely countered, your Three Musketeers will go to the bridge. It is now time for the Three Musketeers Clone. This will give you your second Crown.

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.
