Overview and Strength:

Legendaries are hard to come-by even with the Legendary Chests roaming around the shop. If you're F2P, you might want to use a readily available cards without spending a dime. On this deck, GameChangingGaming uses the Hog Rider and Elite Barbarians as a main tower damager.

The strength of this deck is its ability to do either a Hog Rider push or an Elite Barbarians push. It also has the Mirror to help you have another batch of defense AKA Skeleton Army or Mega Minion on hand.

Clash Royale Strategy:

Ideal Strategy:

Start with your Elite Barbarians + Fire Spirits push right away. If Elite Barbarians are not available, you can have your Hog Rider + Fire Spirits. Always have your Zap ready, as they are both countered by the Skeleton Army. Use the Mirror card whenever necessary. Use it if your Skeleton Army is Zapped by the opponent. Have your Tombstone planted in the middle of your base too, as this can lure potential trespassers.

Offense:

Start your push with the Elite Barbarians followed by the Fire Spirits. This can take the enemy by surprise. Cycle your deck by using other cards to have either a Hog Rider or another Elite Barbarians and back them up with either the Fire Spirits or Mega Minion.

Defense:

Plant a Tombstone right in the middle of your base to lure the trespassers in the middle. Use your Skeleton Army to finish them off. Usually, the opponent will zap them so deploy another Skeleton Army by using the Mega Minion. If you're facing a flying unit / units, you can have the Mega Minion Mirrored.

Additional Tip:

Whenever making a push with either the Hog Rider or Elite Barbarians, have your Zap ready to counter the usual Skeleton Army that counters them. If you're willing to go overboard, you can have both Hog Rider and Elite Barbarians push on the same lane. A high risk and high reward strategy.

Weakness:

As you only have the Mega Minion to counter for any aerial troop, the Lava Hound + Balloon might pose a problem. To solve this, have your Tombstone always ready to lure both. You might use the help of the Fire Spirits to chip some damage but start attacking the Balloon with your Mega Minion. Have your Mega Minion Mirrored to have double damage and then go to the Lava Hound as soon as you're finished.

Gameplay:

Check out how GameChangingGaming, a non-Hog Rider user are wrecking towers in Arena 7 using this deck.

Overall:

Even a non-Hog Rider user GameChangingGaming won his games using this deck. If you checked out the video, his cards are at low-level compared to other Arena 7 players but he is still dominating. This deck relies on the Elite Barbarians' power and the Hog Rider's focus. A sort-of cycle deck at a 3.1 average elixir count.
