The Balloon is a force to be reckoned and can destroy any Crown Tower or buildings if played well.

Overview:

The Balloon is unlocked in Arena 2 - Bone Pit. It is a single target, aerial troop that targets buildings and towers. This flying wrecking ball is not just useful when it's working, but it also deals a big damage when it's deflated or destroyed as it drops a huge bomb that can destroy nearby troops or buildings.

On offense, the Balloon can easily take down a building or a tower. It is recommended to pair it with other cards such as Freeze, Rage, Heal and the unit LumberJack. The Minions or Minion Horde is its worst enemy, so adding the Fire Spirits can help too.

Using the Balloon on defense is not recommended as it can only target enemy buildings and towers. You can use it as a last resort to lure ranged enemies away from your tower / arena.

New Balloon Decks:

One of the most popular Balloon combo is the Giant+Balloon. Although the push has combined elixirs of 10, the Giant effectively shields the Balloon away from harm until it connects to a tower. It gained popularity and since then, there has been new Balloon combos invented.

Do you have your own Balloon Deck Strategy?

The Balloon's ability to take down a tower in a mater of seconds is quite a feat. Once you have it connected to a tower or a building, it can take out a huge chunk of HP on its first hit. If you combine it with other support troops, it is definitely destructive.
