Announcements: The August 2017 Balance Update has shaken the Meta! | Also - Tournament Decks and Crown Challenge Updates | Comments welcome in the article below!
Hog-Rider-Decks.png
A 4 Elixir Unit that has the ability to jump over the river and target buildings. A very popular card for both beginners and experts. Check out how you can utilize his speed, strength, and versatility on this Best Hog Rider Decks.

Overview:

The Hog Rider is unlocked in Arena 4 - P.E.K.K.A's Playhouse. It is one of the most used cards in the game once available. His speed, low elixir count, and the ability to lock on buildings is his key features.

The Hog Rider is usually used on offense. He focuses on destroying the enemy's tower or buildings and is commonly accompanied by other units. This gave birth to a lot of Hog Rider combinations. ie: Hog Rider + Zap, Hog Rider + Fire Spirits, Hog Rider + Minions and more.

Using the Hog Rider on defense is possible but not very popular. You can use him to destroy buildings ruining your push (especially if you have a swarm deck). You can also use him to lure units away from your tower as a last choice for a Draw or a Win.
