Card Roles:

  • Hog Rider - Main Tower Smasher. Deploy the Hog Rider in taking down towers. Support with your extra units available.
  • Knight - Mini-Tank Support. The Knight will help your Hog Rider to give extra more hits against the tower. You can also use this as a defensive unit.
  • Executioner - Splash Back and Forth. Mainly use this unit for defense. Deploy this to take down swarmers, splashers and aerial units effectively. Best used with the Tornado.
  • Tornado - Drag and Drop. Cast the Tornado to drag the enemy on a single spot to buy your towers/units extra time. You can also cast this to activate your King Tower when dealing with the Miner, Hog Rider, Goblin Barrel, etc.
  • Goblins - Cheap Counters/Support. Deploy the Goblins to help your Hog Rider chip-in more damage towards towers. You can also use this to kite or kill threats like the Mini PEKKA, Musketeer or the Bandit.
  • Ice Spirit - Cheap Freeze. Use the Ice Spirit with the Hog Rider frequently. You can also use this during defense, especially in weakening or freezing threats such as the Minion Horde and the Battle Ram.
  • Fireball - Threat Destroyer. Cast the Fireball in a horde of units for a positive Elixir trade. Best against the Three Musketeers, Barbarians or in taking down Elixir Collectors.
  • The Log - Cheap Sweeper. Cast the Log to kill low HP units. You can also use this to defeat counters against your Hog Rider.

Clash Royale Strategy:

Ideal Strategy:

The ideal strategy of this deck is to bring havoc early with the Hog Rider. Pair it with the Ice Spirit or team it up with the Knight, Executioner or with the Goblins. You will need to maintain the pressure by countering your enemy with the Tornado and some other more cards. You can rely on counter-pushing your opponent or by making initial attacks once the battle started. Do not forget to cast spells accordingly to ruin the enemy's strategy.

Offense:

In this phase, you can adhere our ideal strategy above. The main offensive move you will do is through the Hog Rider's ability. Deploy it with the Goblins or with the Ice Spirit. Prepare the Log and cast it if you are always being countered by ground units.

In some situations, you can have the Knight and the Hog Rider during an attack. Make sure to place the Knight in front for your Hog Rider to push him forward. The Knight will serve as a defensive unit who will absorb the initial damage of the tower or early counters. After a counter-attack, you can also have the Executioner to help the Hog. Cast additional support if available.

Defense:

During defense, you can rely on the Executioner in taking down a bunch of units. If available, you can cast the Tornado to gather all threats in a single position. Let the Executioner do his job in this scenario. Better support this move with the Ice Spirit or Goblins. These cheap cards will help you distract/freeze threats giving additional time for your tower (and Executioner) to take them all down.

You can use the Log in taking down ground swarmers or cast the Fireball to defeat a horde of incoming units. Play the Knight if you are dealing with some threats such as the Wizard, Musketeer and the like.

Additional Tip:

If being stopped by buildings (eg. Cannon, Inferno Tower), you can use the Goblins to take the initial damage of those first. The Ice Spirit can also help you in this situation. This might be difficult to deal with in the first two minutes of the game. Once the last minute strikes, you can cycle your cards quick, particularly the Hog Rider, leaving your opponent empty-handed for your next Hog attack.

Weakness:

The deck might face some difficulty against some Slow-Push decks in the game today. To deal with this, you may need to make a quick counter attack on the opposite lane if needed. This depends on the enemy's gameplay. Use the Hog Rider along with the cheapest supports you can provide. You will need to make a successful rampage to immobilize the opponent as early as you can.

Overall:

Having the Tornado in the deck is extremely useful in almost all situations of the game. If you are a Hog Rider fan, then playing this set of cards is really a must, especially, if you are aiming to reach the Legendary Arena. Do not forget to upgrade your cards, Chief!

Good luck!
