Overview and Strength:

The P.E.K.K.A is becoming one of the most favorite units in the game because of bridge spammers and beatdown decks. With a couple of hits, she can easily shut down a push. In this deck, CWA shares Adrian Piedra's own version of the P.E.K.K.A Dark Prince Deck.

The strength of this deck is its ability to generate a lot of elixirs from your Elixir Collector. The P.E.K.K.A here is mainly used for defense while you try and cycle your Bandit as much as you can and possibly deal chip damage. It also has the Poison to slowly pull their tower HP together with any nearby building.

Card Roles:

  • Bandit - With her ability to dash you can use her as a sneaky troop in the other lane while the enemy's busy with your P.E.K.K.A. Alternatively, you can also use her for defense.
  • Electro Wizard - Supports your P.E.K.K.A or Bandit against Infernos. He is also effective in stunning other units.
  • Elixir Collector - Helps you collect elixirs and gain a massive elixir trade during double elixir time.
  • Ice Spirit - You can either use it as a cycle card or use it together with your Bandit for a sneak attack.
  • Minions - Your troop against aerials. You can also use them to accompany either your P.E.K.K.A or Bandit.
  • P.E.K.K.A - She is the deck's main defense unit. Keep her as long as you can to counter heavy hitting units.
  • Poison - This spell card can provide protection to your pushes. It can also deal chip damage to their tower and nearby building.
  • Zap - Resets Infernos or kills spams.

Ideal Strategy:

The Ideal Strategy of this deck is to bank your elixirs using the Elixir Collector. As soon as you have it in your hand, place it in front of your King Tower. You can then make small pushes with the Bandit and Ice Spirit. Use the P.E.K.K.A against heavy hitting troops and the Poison to chip tower and building HP. Continue placing down Elixir Collectors if you're able and pressure your opponent by dropping your P.E.K.K.As. You can also do a split push by placing the Bandit + Ice Spirit in the other lane.


Start by gaining an elixir advantage. Plant your Elixir Collector in front of your King Tower. Wait for your opponent to push and counter with your Electro Wizard and Minions. Drop the Bandit at the bridge to start a small push. If the opponent decides to use a Giant, Golem, Mega Knight etc, use the P.E.K.K.A in the same lane. Support your P.E.K.K.A with Electro Wizard and/or Minions.


Your main defense in this deck is the P.E.K.K.A. You can use the Electro Wizard or the Ice Spirit to lure them in the middle of your base to gain the attention of your two tower archers. You can also add the Minions to set up a counter push.


As I tested out this deck, facing an opponent with direct and heavy spell like Lightning and Fireball is a hassle. They will usually aim at your Elixir Collector. If you have a good leveled Elixir Pump, you can still squeeze out a few elixirs to help you. If this is the case, continue with your Bandit small pushes and try to bait their spells and plant an elixir pump as soon as you can. You can always go for a draw by using the P.E.K.K.A's tankiness if all else fails.


CWA gladly features Adrian Piedra a professional Lat-Am Clash Royale player. Adrian Piedra shows off his own version of the PEKKA - Dark Prince.

Final Overview:

I managed to get easy three crown wins with this deck. As long as you plant at least 1-2 Elixir Collectors during double elixir time, you're free to make it rain P.E.K.K.As in the arena. I was able to drop 3 P.E.K.K.As at a time and the least is 2. If you're able to play your cards right, this is also a good deck for crown chest farming.
