Overview and Strength:

The Hog + Lightning combo isn't new and is still alive in the arena. TMD Aaron one of the best pro-player in Asia shares his deck with CWA that helped him won countless of grand challenges in a row. I also tested this deck in my own ladder matches and is working flawlessly.

This deck's strength is its ability to push with just the Hog Rider + Spear Goblins or Bats. If the Hog Rider's not available, you can always push with the Bandit and the Spear Goblins or Bats. The P.E.K.K.A is there to defend and to drain your opponent's counter cards and elixirs.

Ideal Strategy:

The Ideal Strategy of this deck is to go aggressive if you have Hog Rider or Bandit on your starting hand. Support him/her with either the Spear Goblins or Bats. The P.E.K.K.A is mainly used for defense. The Electro Wizard is the same and use him against Infernos.

If the opponent has an Inferno Tower, drop the Bats at the middle of the bridge to distract it. You can also use the P.E.K.K.A's tankiness to push the Hog Rider away from the Inferno Tower. You can bypass any building by dropping your Hog Rider at the farthest corner of the bridge.


I played this deck in my own ladder matches and Minion Horde is sort of a nuisance. However, it is counterable by dropping the Electro Wizard and then Zap. Countering Infernos is easy too by using Zap and Bats.


Watch CWA as he explains TMD Aaron's deck. TMD Aaron easily won countless of Challenges using this deck.

Final Overall:

Even though I'm not a Hog Rider user myself, this deck is still working superbly in Arena 10 - Hog Mountain ladder matches. Out of 4 matches I played, it has 3-0-1 (win-draw-loss) record. In my games, it lost to a Golem + Night Witch + Bandit. This is because I placed the P.E.K.K.A and targeted the wrong troop then they all swarmed the tower. Placement is also the key here.
