Overview and Strength:

The Golem never lost his touch in the arena and is still one of the formidable cards in the game. In this deck, he is supported with the Baby Dragon along with the newly buffed Mini P.E.K.K.A to deal tremendous tower damage.

The strength of this deck relies on the Golem's ability to tank. You also have your Skeletons to use for defense and to lure their Zap away from your Bats. The Lightning spell can also deal a great amount of damage to his/her push or with his/her tower.

Ideal Strategy:

The ideal strategy of this deck is to have the Golem accompanied by your Baby Dragon and then have your Lightning ready for any counters. If they have the Inferno Tower or Inferno Dragon, use the Zap and then have your Bats finish it off.


Start with the Elixir Collector. You will need all the elixirs you can get. Once you have enough, drop the Golem at the back of your king tower. If they start with a push, use your Skeletons to distract and Mini P.E.K.K.A to finish them. Add the Baby Dragon to your Golem push and then have your Lightning ready. You can also have the Mini P.E.K.K.A join the fun.


For defense, you can use the Lightning if they are trying to put down your Golem. You can include their tower to chip a good damage. If they put down a tanker or other units, use the Skeletons before dropping the Bats to lure out the Zap. The Mini P.E.K.K.A can hit like a truck too so use her against high HP units.


This deck is pretty heavy. Sometimes you have to sacrifice a tower to get the ball rolling. You should also know the best placements for your Skeletons to distract any incoming units for your Mini P.E.K.K.A. Use your Lightning wisely too as you don't want to have zero elixirs to counter any pushes coming in your base.


CLASHwithSHANE gladly gives us a no legendary deck fit for this meta. Check out how he uses this deck in Arena 11.

Final Overview:

This deck is heavy and requires a good placement of your cheap units. If you're facing an Inferno Dragon or Inferno Tower don't forget to use your Zap together with the Bats for a +1 positive elixir trade and you'll make your Golem push more time to deal significant damage.
