Overview and Strength:

CLASHwithSHANE introduces a new Zap Bait deck without swarm units to get your Sparky ready for a blasting good time. He is using his F2P level 7 account and made his way to Arena 10 - Hog Mountain. He even beat his level 10 opponent using this deck.

The strength of this deck is almost all your units are asking for a Zap spell. The Goblin Barrel, Skeleton Army, and the underestimated Sparky. Once you get the spell out of his rotation it is time to roll! You also have the Tornado spell to give your Sparky an easier time to focus her energy.

Card Roles:

  • Goblin Barrel - If your opponent doesn't have a Log in his deck, he will more or less Zap these three Goblins attacking his tower.
  • Hog Rider - He will charge towards the tower and make a good tank for both of your Sparky and Goblin Barrel
  • Ice Spirit - A cheap 1-elixir card to use for defense. You can use it to kite opponents away from your tower and freeze them. This gives time for your Archers and other units to deal damage.
  • Musketeer - She is all about fire power. Her Musket can deal a good amount of damage to any flying units.
  • Skeleton Army - Another Zappable unit. They are for tanks and other units placed by your opponent.
  • Sparky - Great for defense as well as offense. You can use her together with the Tornado or as a powerful support for your Hog Rider.
  • Tornado - Mainly for defense. This spell will clump the enemies into a ball for your Sparky.
  • Zap - Just in case your opponent is packing quite a lot of swarms this Zap can help you out.

Clash Royale Strategy:

Ideal Strategy:

The ideal strategy of this deck is to bait out your opponent's Zap by using your cards. This way, you can freely use your Sparky or your Goblin Barrel with ease. The Tornado spell is there for defense and the Sparky for both offense and defense. Your Hog Rider will tank for your Goblin Barrel.


Start with the Sparky at the back of your king tower. Your opponent will have no choice but to save his/her Zap spell against her. Before she reaches the bridge, drop the Hog Rider and let the Goblin Barrel fly. Your opponent will now have to choose which unit to Zap. Usually, they will go for the Sparky. Your Hog and your GB will deal great amount of damage to his tower.

Just in case they have an Electro Wizard, don't worry, Sparky is just your second win condition. She is just there as support for defense and offense. You have your Musketeer with you to counter him.


On defense, you have your Tornado spell that works perfectly combined with your Sparky. You can also use it to pull tankers away from your Sparky while you wait for her to charge. Another great way to use the Tornado is to pull a Hog Rider towards your King Tower to activate it. You'll always need that extra cannon to help you clean up.


The ultimate weakness of this deck is of course, Electro Wizard. But you can always counter him with your Skeleton Army for baiting his/her Zap or your Musketeer. A Rocket is also this deck's weakness. Sometimes, your foe might blast a Rocket to finish off your Sparky along with a tower damage. If this is the case and you still want to use your Sparky, place her in the middle of your base, away from your tower. You can always just use your Hog + GB technique if all else fails.



CLASHwithSHANE is shows a great technique in dealing with high level players in the arena by just using this deck in his level 7 F2P account.


The strategy of this deck is fairly simple. It can also bring down the popular bridge spam decks in the arena by using the Tornado along with the Sparky for a good positive elixir trade. You then hit them back with a Hog Rider + GB for a solid push.
