Here's a good deck that you can use in ladder matches that uses the Flying Machine's ability to support.

Overview and Strength:

The Flying Machine is your new alternative to the Musketeer. The master builder really outdid himself this time as it can match the Musketeer's range and its speed is almost similar to the Dart Goblin. It is a great unit to use for support on both offense and defense.

The strength of this deck is its pair of Minions that can either go offense or defense. Even after the opponent arrows it down, you still have either the Minions or Minion Horde to finish the task. The Miner here is either a backup for your push just before your Giant's death or as a split push unit with Minions.

Card Roles:

  • Fireball - Clears pushes. You can also use it towards your opponent's tower to end the game.
  • Flying Machine - Your deck's support. Use it to defend your Giant against aerial units or nearby buildings. It can deal huge amount of damage if it connects to the tower.
  • Giant - Tanker. He will shield your Flying Machine and/or Minions while they go for a push. You can also use it to confuse your opponent into making a split push.
  • Goblins - Deals with single target units.
  • Miner - He will save your push and tank for your Minions and/or Minion Horde. You can also deploy him in the opposite lane to make a split push.
  • Minion Horde - They are your main shredders in the deck. Use the Minions first before putting them into battle to bait out any spells.
  • Minions - Bait out spells. They can also be a backup for your Minion Horde.
  • Zap - Resets Infernos and gets rid of spam.

Clash Royale Strategy:

Ideal Strategy:

The Ideal Strategy of this deck is to have the Giant tank for your support cards like the Flying Machine and your Minions and/or Minion Horde. Have the Miner save the push by deploying him right before your Giant expires. You can also do a split push by making the opponent think you're pushing with a Giant on the left and then quickly using the Miner with Minions on the right.


You can start by doing a slow push by planting the Giant at the back of your King tower. You can then back him up with your Flying Machine. Deploy the Miner onto the same tower together with Minions.

Alternatively, you can start with the same push with the Giant and instead of using the Miner in the same lane, deploy him to the other tower with the Minions.


Use the Giant's high HP as much as you can. If you're faced with Elite Barbarians, use him to stall and have your Minions and Flying Machine get rid of them.


Your Giant, Miner, and Flying Machine are the only ones with average to good HP. Use the Giant whenever you can to deflect the opponent's pushes and ready your counter by using your support. Remember, you can always use the Miner to save your low HP units against his/her tower archers.

Final Overview:

Once you get the Flying Machine in a good level, you can easily replace the Musketeer. Although, it is still susceptible against Fireballs, it is easier to finish ground troops because they need a ranged unit to target it. This deck is great in ladder matches. Again, make sure to use the Giant as a lure and to also start your counterpush.

  • Are there any substitutes for miner -- 09:17, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
    • Hey there bud! It's hard to sub a Miner as he can go straight to a tower but you can try the Bandit to tank for your Minions/Minion Horde. If you want a no legendary route, you can try the Battle Ram. :)
