The Hog + Freeze Deck:

Spear Goblins Knight Skeletons Arrows
Spear Goblins Knight Skeletons Arrows

Card Roles:

  • Hog Rider. Your trump card in the game. Use him to surprise your enemy in the last minute of the game!
  • Freeze. Your Hog Rider’s best friend. Keep this spell in the pocket of your Hog Rider in order to wreck a tower easily.
  • Baby Dragon. Your air and ground splasher. You can also use it as your tank if needed. Make a combo with the Mini PEKKA for better performance.
  • Mini P.E.K.K.A. This little guy will help you make a severe damage to your opponent’s beefy tank and towers.
  • Spear Goblins. Cheap and useful. You can make them as your support in any situation. Just be aware in the incoming Arrows!
  • Knight. Your tank on the ground. Use him if ran out of big Elixir.
  • Skeletons. Attention snatcher. Best used for distracting Prince, Mini PEKKA or even Giant Skeleton.
  • Arrows. Can be used in either offense or defense.

Battle Strategy:

Drop Spear Goblins at the first part of the game then Drop a Knight to tank whatever hinders their way. By this move, you can check what kind of cards did your opponent brought to take you down. After analyzing the cards, you can now proceed in either defensive or offensive play.

When pushing, Freeze Spell is the key to successfully destroy an existing tower. Drop the Freeze Spell once the Hog Rider reaches the target. In most times, your Hog will be countered by some swarm troops that can easily take him down. So use your Freeze Spell in a timely manner.

If your Freeze Spell did not cover everything or your opponent made a delayed drop of their card, always ready your Arrows to help your Hog Rider. (This is only applicable if there are no troops at the back of your main attacker)

If being swarmed, use your Dragon to defend. Make sure to defend him using your Spear Goblins. Once you wiped them out, drop a Mini PEKKA or a Knight in front to take some damage but do not worry, because your Dragon will do the cleaning at the back.

Freeze spell can also be used in defending in some situations. Handle your elixir with care as always. Skeletons can help you snatch the attention of Skeleton King, Prince, and PEKKA. Make sure to drop them near any of your towers so that they can support each other. Once you have snatched their attention, drop some Spear Goblins to kill them. Drop a Knight or Prince to tank them sometimes.
