Card Roles:

  • Hog Rider - The main tower wrecker of this deck. Support this unit to chip in extra attacks to its target.
  • Sparky - This deck's main distractor. The Sparky can be your ultimate answer against bulky units (Golem,P.E.K.K.A,Giant etc.). You can also use this in taking down towers quick.
  • Musketeer - The Musketeer is used in both offensive and defensive plays. Place it behind your Crown Tower or units to extend her help further. Use in defeating bulky units (air or ground).
  • Tornado - The Tornado Spell is this deck's savior. Use this spell card in pulling horde of troops (air and/or ground). Use Zap to weaken aerial troops or Mega Minion/Sparky to defeat ground threats.
  • Zap - Use to support the Hog Rider in chipping in additional damage. Can reset the Inferno Dragon, Inferno Tower and other notable units' targets. Can also be handy in defeating horde of low HP units.
  • Goblin Barrel - Pair this card with the Hog Rider for a stronger attack. Mainly used to bring pressure against the enemy's.
  • Mega Minion - Use in both offense and defense. A card you can count on in almost all situations in a battle.

Clash Royale Strategy:

Ideal Strategy:

The ideal strategy of this deck is to pressure the enemy by the presence of the Sparky in a chosen lane. As it rolls towards the enemy's lair, you will need to have the Hog Rider with the Goblin Barrel on the opposite side. Through this, pressuring your enemy will be extra difficult for them to counter. Make a team out of your other units. Defend and making a strong counter-push will be this deck's conceptual strategy.


There are many ways on how to start an offensive move with this deck.

First, you can drop the Sparky behind the King Tower. Wait for your enemy’s answer as you build elixir. Before the Sparky reaches the river, deploy the Goblin Barrel and Hog Rider on the opposite side. React depending on the enemy’s counter troops to help your Hog Barrel mashup.

Second, If you do not have the Sparky early, you can deploy the Musketeer behind your King Tower. Through this, you can cycle your cards a bit if the enemy drops a counter unit for your range attacker. From there, you can try to do the first strategy we wrote above.

Third, use the Goblin Barrel as your initial tower attack. While this might be tricky, we recommend you to drop the Barrel a tile away from the enemy’s crown tower (front). If they Zap it, most likely, they will only hit the first Goblin. The two others will have a free time to chip in some damage to the enemy’s tower. From there, you can now cycle or use the cards you need depending on the situation.

Try to think of ways on how to counter the enemy if they are running a defensive building (e.g Inferno Tower, Tombstone, etc.). You can use the Sparky or your other cards to weaken these buildings in certain situations.


While defending your base might be a challenge, do not worry, your spells will likely help you all throughout.

In fighting Elite Barbarians, you will need to cast the Tornado spell to pull them a for some seconds. If a Fire Spirits or other supporting units are behind, you can Zap them to help your crown tower defeat the mobs. Make sure you have the Musketeer or the Mega Minion for big support.

In some situation, you can use the Sparky’s critical damage to kill a bunch of incoming threats. If the enemy tries to gather a wave of ground troops in a single lane, use the Sparky to annihilate them quick. You can do this if the enemy drops a bulky unit in a specific lane. Before they create a strong team, drop the Sparky behind your King Tower. Expect that they will counter your Sparky by the Zap. If this happens, quickly cast the Tornado to pull the enemy’s troops. Before the Tornado runs out, the Sparky is likely recharged to tear the targeted units apart.

If running low in elixir, you can use a cheap counter with the Skeleton Army and/or Tornado/Musketeer. This is still effective as long as you learned the cycle of the enemy’s cards by heart. There might also be times that you will be attacked on the opposite lane while trying to make a Sparky push. Prevent this situation by saving spare elixir before deploying the Sparky.

Make a strong counter-push out of your live troops, later on, to get an upper hand in the battle.


If having a hard time reaching a crown tower with the Hog Rider, try to formulate some alternative combos to attack towers. You can use the Musketeer/Mega Minion with the Goblin Barrel. The Sparky can also help you out clear the way in particular situations. Once you force your enemy to plant their defensive building early, your Hog Rider will have a higher chance to reach its target successfully.


The only concern is the levels of the enemy’s cards. If you are a Level 7-8 player in the recommended arena, you will need to be keen in defending your towers. Supporting the Hog Rider is really a must. If having troubles, outsmart your enemy by deploying the Sparky. Through this, you will have more time to push a specific lane. Your enemy will surely counter the Sparky with all their might. If this happens, your other troops will have a higher chance to reach your target.

Special thanks to CLASHwithSHANE for this featured deck.


The deck is a good one if you like playing raw and out-of-the-current-meta decks. Most players in the upper arenas would not expect their enemies to have the Sparky. Though it is easy to be countered, the mixture of your cards will make it difficult for them to do it. If you really want to try this deck, make sure to do a lot of practices to get the right timing in deploying troops, combos, and counters. Good luck!
