Overview and Strength:

Surgical Goblin won the CCGS finals with this Giant + Miner deck. The technique of this deck is to tank the Night Witch, her Bats plus other support with the Giant. Just before the Giant dies, deploy the Miner for a good save.

This deck's strength is its speed. A 3.1 average elixir deck is not pretty common in beatdown decks. It makes use of the Giant to tank while the Night Witch is busy spawning her Bats. The rest of the cards are for defense or support.

Surgical Goblin CCGS Winning Deck :

Card Roles:

  • Electro Wizard - One of the great counter for your deck is the Inferno Dragon. As Bridge Spam decks are also pretty popular, the Electro Wizard is a good answer.
  • Giant - This is your main win condition. Place him in front of your Night Witch just before she reaches the bridge.
  • Goblins - Cheap and effective counter to tanky ground units. Use the Ice Spirit if they need some help.
  • Ice Spirit - It can act as a lure or as a kite. Use it together with your defense team to finish an enemy.
  • Miner - He is your "push saver". When your Giant is already low on health, it is now time to deploy your Miner towards the tower.
  • Night Witch - She can deal a good amount of damage on her own plus her Bats. Place her at the back of your Giant.
  • Poison - Use this the same way as you use it with the Giant + Poison strategy.
  • The Log - You can either use this spell as a predictive The Log or wait for your opponent to counter your push.

Clash Royale Strategy:

Ideal Strategy:

The Ideal Strategy of this deck is to have a Giant + Night Witch push and just before your Giant die deploy your Miner to save the day. The Miner will continue to tank for your Night Witch and her Bats plus your additional support at the back. You can also have the Poison around your push to melt down common counters such as the Skeleton Army and Minion Horde.

Offense:

Start with the Night Witch at the back of your king tower. Before she reaches the bridge place the Giant in front along with your Electro Wizard. Usually, your opponent will use a spell to get rid of your support but if they manage to survive, continue your push by deploying your Miner. He will continue to tank for your Night Witch and her Bats. Surround them with Poison for that extra protection.

Defense:

On defense, you have your Goblins against the usual Elite Barbarians, Hog Riders etc. Aid them with your Ice Spirit and your Electro Wizard. Don't be scared of using your Poison for defense. Again, this deck only costs 3.1 so you can cycle back easily.

You can also use your Night Witch for defense and then place the Giant before she reaches the bridge to start with another push.

Weakness:

This deck weakness is the P.E.K.K.A. A couple of swings and your Giant will bid good bye. You can have your The Log to push her back and then Ice Spirit + Goblins. Your Night Witch and her Bats can help out too.

Gameplay:

Surgical Goblin used this deck on CCGS and won the championship! Check out how he used it in regular Tourney matches.

Overall:

Since I have all the cards available, I tested it in my own ladder matches. To be honest, out of 5 games I played using this deck it has a 4-0-1 (win - draw - loss) stats. The technique of this deck is the placement of your troops. You don't want to place your Goblins in line with your tower as players nowadays use a predictive spell card such as Zap, The Log, and Fireball. Try to place your units in the middle and away from your tower.
