Overview and Strength:

History repeats itself in the Clash Royale arena. The classic P.E.K.K.A + Dark Prince is back and they're bringing in new troops in their army. This deck has a pretty high win rate at 70% according to and CWA gladly shares it in his channel.

The strength of this deck is its ability to three crown the opponent if you play your cards right. It has the Dark Prince to either partner with your P.E.K.K.A or Bandit for splash. You also also have the Poison against swarms, chip for his tower and building.

Card Roles:

  • Bandit - She can charge directly at a tower or you can also use her for defense. Partner her with the Dark Prince for a more effective push.
  • Bats - Aerial support against flying units such as Lava Hounds, Balloons, etc. They can also easily shred through ground units.
  • Dark Prince - A great support card for both of your P.E.K.K.A and Bandit.
  • Electro Wizard - The number 1 legendary in the arena right now. He can easily go from defense to support.
  • Elixir Collector - Helps you with any elixir problems. Place it as soon as you're able or if you have extra elixirs.
  • P.E.K.K.A - Main ground defense unit. Use it as a counter as she can easily roll to a counter-push.
  • Poison - Use this spell for either defense or offense to chip tower and building HP.
  • Zap - Stops swarms and also resets Infernos if your E-Wiz is too busy.

Clash Royale Strategy:

Ideal Strategy:

The Ideal Strategy of this deck is to counter your opponent's pushes with your P.E.K.K.A and then make a huge push by adding the Dark Prince and/or Bandit at the bridge. You can also have the Electro Wizard for additional support against Infernos.


Start your push by using your Elixir Collector and banking on your elixirs. Use your P.E.K.K.A whenever necessary and if there is a chunky unit that needs to be destroyed. You can then plant the Dark Prince at the bridge. In some cases, you can also split your push and have the Bandit together with the Bats.


Your P.E.K.K.A is your main ground defense. If you're facing aerial tanks such as the Lava Hound and/or Balloon, use the Electro Wizard together with the Bats. You can also use the Poison to deal with the Lava Pups.


Flying troops is this deck's weakness since it only has the Electro Wizard and Bats. CWA suggests to use your E-Wiz and Bats first or go heavy on the other lane. Make a tower trade if necessary. You can then go straight for a three crown with the help of your Elixir Collector and a barrage of P.E.K.K.As, Dark Princes, and Bandits.


This deck's video gameplay is at 12:30. CWA first shows us a different version of this deck and then he will share the gameplay of this 70% win rate deck.

Final Overview:

The initial deck which is the P.E.K.K.A Bandit Control Deck uses Minions instead of Bats and Ice Spirit instead of the Dark Prince. It is cheaper at 3.8 average elixirs. If you want to go all offense, feel free to use this version of the deck.
