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.

TOP 9: How To Easily Win With the Lumberjack - A Deck for Arena 8 Above

Dropped in the 9th spot last week, check this popular Lumberjack deck starting in Arena 8. Best for players who like to wreck towers with slow-push yet low average elixir cost deck!

Giant Lumber Guards Deck - Arena 8 Above:

Giant LumberJack Guards Musketeer
giant.png LumberJack.png guards.png musketeer.png
Fire Spirits Ice Spirit Zap Cannon
fire_spirits.png IceSpirit.png zap.png cannon.png

Clash Royale Strategy:

Wait until your Elixir reaches 10 before dropping the Giant. Place your beefy tank behind the King Tower. Mostly, enemies will take this as an opportunity to make a big push. To counter them effectively, drop your Cannon in the center of your base. This will lure their main troop(s) making it hard for them to support. After placing your Cannon, drop the Fire Spirits to wipe out low elixir troops around their main unit(s). This will drastically weaken their push and will force them to use further troops to make their move a big catch. Prepare your Zap Spell to eliminate or somehow stop corresponding troops. Cast it in a good timing to extend its power.

Lightning Mega Minion Miner Zap
lightning.png 2016-09-19-00-47-23-mega_minion.PNG miner.png zap.png

Clash Royale Strategy:

If you got a good hand, start with the Elite Barbarians behind your King Tower. Put them carefully so they will do a split push. If the opponent tried to push on the left side of the arena, have your Hog Rider ready on the right side. Deploy him after one Elite Barbarian crossed the bridge. He will tank for your Hog. Aim your Goblin Barrel at the same tower and this will win you your first crown easy. For the second push, you can deploy your Miner on your next tower prospect. Once the Tower Archer is locked on, put down the Elite Barbarians on the bridge to help out. You can add another Goblin Barrel in the mix for your second Crown Tower win.

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.

TOP 6: Ash's Hog-Yard Deck for Arena 8 and Above

Paved its way on the 6th spot last week, the Ice Golem Hog Rider Combo is getting famous on the higher arenas! With the annoying power of the Graveyard, opponents will be easily puzzled on what to counter first. Join the trend with this Ice Hog Deck starting in Arena 8.

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.

TOP 5: Insane Log Deck for Arena 6

This Log Deck reached the fifth spot in the last ranking made here in Clash Royalepedia! With the increasing number of Swarm users, bringing a lot of counters is a must! This deck is recommended for players who are used to play with the classic Trifecta!

Insane Log Deck:

The Log Hog Rider Musketeer Goblins
TheLog.png hog_rider.png musketeer.png goblins.png
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.

Fireball Giant Mega Minion Minions
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.

Click here for a compilation of the Best Tornado Deck Strategies, just in case you're looking for this.

Hog Lightning Ft. Tornado Deck Arena 8 Above:

Hog Rider Ice Golem Mega Minion Archers

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.

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.

inferno_tower.png 2016-09-19-00-47-23-mega_minion.PNG spear_goblins.png zap.png

Clash Royale Strategy:

This is a fast cycle deck but you still have to wait until you are at max. If you don't have an Ice Golem on your hand. Do a quick cycle by deploying cheap troops such as Spear Goblins or Goblins. If you do have an Ice Golem, deploy him on a lane where you want your opponent to think you're going to push. If you dropped him on the left lane, drop your Goblins + Hog Rider at the other lane at the bridge! Make sure to try to push the Hog Rider with your Goblins for him not to be distracted by any buildings in the middle. Go straight with the Goblins + Hog Rider push.
