Category Evaluation
Offense Your main offense is the Hog Rider.
Your Minions, Guards, and Royal Ghost can also deal tower damage.
Defense You have your Inferno Dragon and Royal Ghost to counter against the Mega Knight and Golem.
Ice Golem and Guards to counter against the Royal Ghost.
Watch Out For Tornado. Since you only have the Hog Rider to deal offense, the opponent might want to sit in their Tornado card.

  • Note - You can support your push with either the Minions or Guards. But usually, you have to save them to counter their pushes and go for a quick Hog push whenever they're down on elixir.

Win Conditions:

These cards can let you win the game or beat a tower when ignored by the enemy:

You use the spell for attacking, defending, or countering:

  • Note - Poison for direct tower damage and defense buildings. Zap to reset Infernos and get rid of swarms.


Defensive Cards:

These are the cards you use for defending or supporting your pushes:

  • Note - These two are weak against the Zap and ranged units. If facing one, finish the unit first with your Mini P.E.K.K.A.

Elixir Collector Counter:

These are the cards you can use against the Elixir Collector:


Three Musketeers Response:

The Three Musketeers can beat towers when left alone. Here's what you should use:

Note - This deck doesn't have a direct counter against the 3M. Alternatively, you can use the Ice Golem to distract and finish with the Royal Ghost.
