Clash Royale Strategy:

Ideal Strategy:

The ideal strategy of this deck is to play defensively and create strong counter-pushes out of your available units. You can create pressure with a naked Hog Rider as you force them to place their units unusually. Unusual in a way that they cannot create a firm team to make a strong offensive move against your towers.

Offense:

For offense, you can have the Hog Rider alone or with the Goblin Barrel. If you want to play it alone, you will need to have the Wizard or any units ready for a defense afterwards. If with the Goblin Barrel, it is best to have the Zap ready for possible counters. Remember that this move might be risky for you will a high amount of elixir in order to execute this combo.

You can also have the Prince with the Goblin Barrel/Valkyrie/Wizard. This is attainable after successfully defending your towers. You can try to mix a single-unit attacker with any of the Splashers available for a higher chance of winning.

Defense:

In this phase, you can use the Minion Horde in taking down tanks quick. If lack of elixir, you can substitute the Skeleton Army. Always remember that this is a risky move for the Skarmy can be killed by a single Zap.

If dealing with the Elite Barbarians, you can deploy the Valkyrie to hold them for a bit. Use Zap if needed. Deploy the Wizard to defeat air/ground swarmers. His splash ability will help you defend quick without absorbing too much damage from them. You can also use the Prince in taking down ground threats.

Do not forget to support your units later to create a strong tension during counter-pushes.

Additional Tip:

Let your enemy play initially most of the time for you to counter them excellently. Be always aware that you will exert a high amount of elixir in a snap. That is why you must pick a card carefully in each situation.

Weakness:

The weakness of this deck is by poor use of cards/elixir in distinct situations. As we can see, the deck is kind of heavy and might be a challenge to play in the first two minutes. The best way to deal with this concern is by letting the enemy play their strategy first. Counter them by using a single card. Wisely pick on what card you will need to take them down. From there, you can create an effective counter-push later on.

Retain this strategy until the double-elixir starts.

Overall:

If you play it correctly, taking down the opponent's towers should be easier. Practice more for additional 'worth-it' victories in the future.

Good luck!
