Golem + Ice Wizard Deck Strategy — Arena 8
Let's take our trophies up above the higher arena using this epic deck as the Golem plays an important role in your team.

Overview and Strength:

This Golem + Ice Wizard Deck Guide was shared by nickatnyte, a Youtuber, who showcases different decks in his channel, giving players a lot of choices on what deck they could effectively play in a certain arena. This deck is ‘balanced’ in its own way because it gives each of the card the support it needs.

Like what nickatnyte stated, the cards help each other in this deck. Every card plays a vital role and teaming them up as one will lead you to the win that you achieve.

Golem + Ice Wizard Deck - Legendary Arena

Spear Goblins Goblin Hut Arrows Elixir Collector

Card Roles:

Ice Wizard. This legendary card will serve as your main support for your Golem to move forward. It will slow down and kill your enemies by its splash damage. Ice Wizard can also buy time in killing those beefy tank/attacker like PEKKA, Golem, etc.

Golem. He will serve as your main tank to successfully reach a specific tower together with your Princes’ combo. Once he reaches its HP limit, this card will split into two golemites with a bonus splash damage, killing or severely damaging any troops around it.

Prince. Best used after dropping your Dark Prince first at the back of your Golem. In defense, you can also use him in defeating those damage soakers in the way through the help of your Ice Wizard and/or Goblins.

Dark Prince. Splash damage at its finest. He will serve as your ground splasher and a very handy card for only four elixir cost. 

Spear Goblins. He can perform fair damage as the game goes by and can also serve as a distraction to some incoming troops. Spear Goblins are very versatile and can be very useful at the end for it can add swarm and pressure.

Goblin Hut. Will add spice to this deck by spawning those goblins that can annoy your enemy in a specific lane. Once the game reaches its last minute, you can surely make those green guys overwhelm the whole battlefield.

Arrows. Use to kill low HP troops like Spear Goblins, Skeletons, Minions, etc. This card can also kill a Princess in a single blow. Use it depending on the situation.

Elixir Collector. Not only does it provide extra elixir, but can also serve as a defense snatching the attention of your opponent’s troops. This card will let you use your Golem in its best especially if the game reaches its last minute.

Battle Strategy:

Always drop your Goblin Hut first and just let it hit a tower to slowly lower its HP. If there is no Goblin Hut at the beginning, drop the Elixir Collector to gain extra elixir immediately. If your enemy dropped a Prince, expect that a backup troop will be dropped as well to support your enemy’s Prince (e.g Minion Horde).

To counter this kind of combo, make a clash by dropping your Dark Prince with an Ice Wizard serving as its support. Your Dark Prince’s shield will absorb the single x2 damage of the incoming Prince giving him the advantage to defeat the Prince easily. To stop those backups, the Ice Wizard will do its job. This kind of team combo can also be played against an incoming Golem or PEKKA. If a Spear Goblins card is available in your hand, drop it down to fully support the Ice Wizard and knock those troops in a shorter period. 

In the pushing phase of this deck, drop your Golem at the back of your King’s tower, let your elixir pump up and once the Golem reaches the river, drop your Dark Prince and follow it with a Prince behind. Your Dark Prince will take care all of those counter troops on the ground due to its splash damage. This will give way not only for the Golem but also to your Prince to hit the tower hard. Deal with those air troops (e.g Minions, Minion Horde), prepare your Arrows for support if your Ice Wizard will not make it in time to reach those counter troops.

As the game nears its end, you should be able to have already won a tower or two. If not, wait for the opponents action and strategically place your main troops on the field.

Deck Weakness:

The deck’s average elixir cost is 4.4 giving its user time to wait for each card to be available next. As you can see in this set, the only cheap cards that you can draw easily for emergency are Spear Goblins, Ice Wizard and Arrows. While the others are 4 and up elixir cost. The struggle will start if your opponent keeps on pressuring a single lane and forcing you to drop any of your available cards. We recommend that when you use this deck, analyze the deck of your opponent, make distractions without spending too much elixir. Always remember to make a team when pushing to support each of your cards. In defense, try your best to use your crown tower + Ice Wizard and Spear Goblins combo. Place them in a different position to avoid a direct hit from Fireball, Freeze Spell or Arrows.

  • You guys need to understand that this deck was written 1000 years ago. Click the video above, check its timestamp on YouTube. MARCH 2016. Not a lot of Aerial Troops at that time. No Lava Hound. No Mega Minion, and certainly no Inferno Dragon at that time. Again. this deck is OLD. -- 02:45, 4 November 2016 (UTC)

  • Amazing deck, it's all 3 crowns in Arena 7 and 8 ;) It doesn't matter if the opponent takes two towers, cuz nothing can stop golem, ice wizard, Prince, dark Prince, fire spirits (I use fire spirits and furnace cuz they're cheaper) -- 00:26, 29 August 2016 (UTC)
