Clash Royale Meta Decks - February 2018
Check out what is the most popular card there is in the Clash Royale Arena!

What Are Meta Decks:

Meta Decks are decks that are usually the best strategy deck to use in Clash Royale. The meta is an evolving process in the game since Supercell tries to balance the game and add several things every time they update the game. A little balance update changes the whole aspect of the game and the interaction of each card to one another. Basically, a Meta Deck is never constant and there are times that a Meta Deck may not be used for quite some time.

The Decks below are the meta decks that became popular because of the January 2018 Balance Update

Hog L-Jack Cycle for Arena 8 Tournament:

Create an easy push with the Hog supported by the LumberJack and his Rage. - Hog L-Jack Cycle for Arena 8 Tournaments

Use the LumberJack to counter and after he's done and on his way to the tower, place down the Hog Rider with any support unit. The LumberJack's Rage will drop giving your Hog more hits.

Hog LumberJack Cycle Deck for Arena 9 to 12:

A 3.0 Hog Rider cycle deck that can go insane with the help from the L-Jack's Rage. - Hog LumberJack Cycle Deck for Arena 9 to 12

Because of the LumberJack's buff, we are seeing a lot of him in the arena. You can use him to tank for your Hog Rider or for your Musketeer. As usual, you can just use the Hog Rider + cheap support unit.

Hog Rocket Executioner Deck for Arena 11:

Rock the arena with this popular deck today, the Cycle Hog with the Executioner! - Hog Rocket Executioner Deck for Arena 11

Have an easy push with the Hog Rider and create a pretty solid defense with the Tombstone and Exec-Nado and Knight!

Golem Goblin Hut L-Jack Deck for Arena 9 Tournaments:

Make your units go into frenzy with the help from the LumberJack. - Golem Goblin Hut L-Jack Deck for Arena 9 Tournaments

Royal Ghost is out and in with the LumberJack. The strategy here is the same with the one with the Ghost but this time, it uses the LumberJack's rage to power up your troops that can bring down a tower faster.

Miner Zappies Control Deck for Arena 11 to 12:

miner-zappies-control.png
Tank your support units with either the Miner or the Mega Knight! - Miner Zappies Control Deck for Arena 11 to 12

Aside from the LumberJack, we are also seeing a lot of Zappies action in the arena. Same as the Golem deck above, the Zappies replace the Royal Ghost for a more electrifying power. Since they can now target both air and ground, they are more effective.

Miner-Loon Exe-Nado Deck for Arena 12:

miner-loon-exe-nado.png
A 2.9 Balloon Deck that can let you tank with either the Knight or the Miner. - Miner-Loon Exe-Nado Deck for Arena 12

After the January 2018 Balance Changes, Balloon usage in high trophy arenas became popular. This is one of the decks in Arena 12 with only 2.9 average elixirs. It plays with one of the strongest defense in the game, the Executioner + Tornado combo.

Zappies Bait Deck for Arena 11 Tournaments:

Bait your opponent's Zap for an almost unstoppable push! - Mega Miner Bait Deck for Arena 12

This deck baits out the opponent's Zap. Once baited, you can easily make a push with your Miner + support or with your Inferno Dragon!

Zappies Knight Bait Deck for Arena 11 Tournaments:

zappies-knight-bait.png
This new Zappies bait deck is getting popular in Tourneys! - Zappies Knight Bait Deck for Arena 11 Tournaments

This deck is almost the same as the deck above but with more "bait" units.

Log Spell Bait Nado Deck for Arena 11:

log-bait-spell-nado.png
A faster Log Bait / Spell Bait with the Tornado Spell for a faster cycle and to activate the King Tower. - Log Spell Bait Nado Deck for Arena 11

This deck has the same spell bait element minus the Inferno Tower. This deck has a higher skill cap than its predecessor but it is cheaper. You use the Tornado to pull enemies away or to pull them close to activate your King Tower.

High Trophy X-Bow Tesla Deck for Arena 12:

X-bow-tesla-deck.png
X-Bow deck for high trophy ladder matches by Marco I - High Trophy X-Bow Tesla Deck for Arena 12

Since the Mortar got a nerf (or a buff, depending on how you use it) a lot of siege players are now using this quick X-Bow cycle deck. You also have the Tesla that can one hit Minions.

Overall:

With the Royal Ghost nerf and the L-Jack buff, most of the decks now have the L-Jack. Some decks even have the same cards but they just removed the Ghost and replaced with the L-Jack. Golem Decks, Balloon Decks, and the all time bait decks are still a fave in this meta.

How about you? Are there any more decks you are facing a lot these past few days? Share it below in our comment section!
