Overview and Strength:

One of the newest deck by Captain Snazzy features a no legendary deck featuring the Prince. This deck is a combination of a beatdown and bait strategy. It has the Giant for your Prince and low HP units such as the SkArmy, Minion Horde, and Goblin Barrel to help you win.

The Prince, after he charges can deal a great amount of damage. This deck has the Giant to tank while your Spear Goblins from your Goblin Hut and Prince accumulate behind him. If the opponent uses Zap or Arrows, you can now deploy your Minion Horde or Goblin Barrel. An easy Beatdown/Bait deck.

Card Roles:

  • Arrows - The usual counter for beatdown decks are the SkArmy, Goblin Gang, Minions, and Minion Horde. Have the Arrows in your arsenal to get rid of them.
  • Giant - The tanker in your team. He will shield your Prince and Spear Goblins while they accumulate behind him.
  • Goblin Hut - It will give a steady stream of Spear Goblins. They can take down flying units too.
  • Minion Horde - Zap/Arrows bait. If the opponent already uses his/her Zap/Arrows on your Goblin Barrel, make use of the Minion Horde. They can also easily take down tanks.
  • Musketeer - She is the main unit against flying troops just in case you're facing the Lava-Loon.
  • Prince - The card that your opponent has to watch out for. A couple of hits even it he's not charging can still break the tower.
  • Skeleton Army - Another Zap/Arrows bait card. If your Minion Horde is not available, you can use the SkArmy.

Clash Royale Strategy:

Ideal Strategy:

The Ideal Strategy of this deck is just like the basic Beatdown decks. You will have the Giant in front of your push followed by the Prince. Plant the Goblin Hut on the same lane to generate Spear Goblins at the back. Deploy the Goblin Barrel if necessary.

Once the Zap/Arrows has been used, you can now use the Minion Horde to finish off the tower.



Same as the ideal strategy. Deploy the Giant behind your King Tower to do a slow push. You can also put the Goblin Hut at the farthest corner of your base. If the opponent has the Hog Rider, you may want to place it in the middle. Have the Prince at the back of the Giant and the Spear Goblins will stock behind your push. You can also have the Musketeer together with the SkArmy to split and bait your opponent's Arrows/Zap for you to place your Minion Horde or Goblin Barrel.



If the opponent has tower locking troops, you may want to place the Goblin Hut in the middle of your base. Counter with the SkArmy for tanky units and the Spear Goblins will also help distract incoming troops. The Musketeer will help clear them out.

Additional Tip:

Time the deployment of your units. Your units are easily Zapped/Arrowed down. Once the spells are baited, it's your time to punish your enemy.


The deck's weakness are spells. It can be Arrows, Zap, Fireball and Rocket. The best thing to do is to bait it out with your other cards. If the opponent has Fireball and Rocket, you may want to have your Goblin Hut near your King Tower in the hopes of activating it too.

The Inferno Dragon and Inferno Tower can also be this deck's weakness as it doesn't have a Zap spell. Your Musketeer, SkArmy, Minion Horde will take care of them.

Watch how Captain Snazzy won three battles in a row using this deck in the Hog Mountain.


If you want to go against the meta by using a no legendary deck or just starting your way up the ladder, this deck is perfect for you. Make sure to practice this deck first with your clan mates or in the Training Arena to master the art of baiting your opponent's Arrows and Zap. Make sure to not go all in one lane with all your units if you still doesn't know what spells your opponent has.
