fill_750_468_2016-03-16-06-30-53-maxresdefault.jpg The higher the trophies, the better cards you receive. The better the cards, the faster you can reach Clash Royale's Arena 3 to 11! Here are some tips, Chief!

Trophies meant everything if you badly want to get those strong cards in the higher arenas. Seriously, it’s going to be a looong way to reach the top but let us help you in some ways that we experienced and seen from other experienced players out there in Clash Royale Universe.


Let’s accept the fact that it is not really hard to access Arena 1,2 and 3 and you can really acquire trophies and some notable cards fairly in these stages. But in some circumstances, players were stuck somewhere between Arena 3 to 4 and beyond that is why we will try to give focus starting from Arena 3 onwards. We will have some combination of word explanation and video sharing throughout the article. You ready, Chief? Let’s clash!

Deck Strategies for Arena 3

Many will wonder why we started in this arena but for some occasional players, we will be giving these tips. Not all clashers can step up in just a blink of an eye in some arenas because sometimes, I mean most of the time, your opponent possesses cards that will bring doom in your chosen deck. But that’s what the game is supposed to be. Just always be ready to counter them at your best position. Okay?


Minions Barbarians Barbarian Hut Goblin Hut
minions.png barbarians.png barbarian_hut.png goblin_hut.png
Giant Fireball Spear Goblins Archers
giant.png fireball.png spear_goblins.png archers.png

You can also use a Skeleton Army, Minion Horde, Musketeer and/or Goblin Barrel.

Average Elixir Cost: 4.3


To defeat tank-type cards like Giant Skeleton or Baby Dragon, use a Giant or Barbarians to snatch their attention. Carefully drop Archers or Musketeer to kill them. In countering Prince, Giant or Mini Pekka, simply drop Minions or Minion Horde. If a Witch is coming, you can also use some tank-type cards to divert their attention and warily drop your killing troops behind them. Try to do a pre-emptive Arrows/Fireball drop in Skeleton Army. Timing is essential! If unsure, use Minions or Minion Horde.

Deck Strategies for Arena 4

Called as Pekka’s Playhouse, this is where you will be facing many experienced players with good decks that can wreck your Arena 3 deck.

- F2P Lava Hound Deck - Arena 4 to 7 - 

Lava Hound Barbarians Baby Dragon Musketeer
lava_hound.png barbarians.png baby_dragon.png musketeer.png
Spear Goblins Fire Spirits Arrows Minions
spear_goblins.png fire_spirits.png arrows.png minions.png

Average Elixir Cost: 3.8


Drop your Goblins in your chosen lane. If you are lucky to have the Lava Hound + Baby Dragon on your hand, wait until you have enough elixir before deploying them. Drop your Lava Hound near your King’s Tower, wait for the right timing in dropping your Baby Dragon. Deploy it behind the Hound for splash damage purposes. Its AoE is important especially against a horde of troops in the air. Though you can use your Arrows, it is better to somehow hold it if your Baby Dragon is already present in the clash. You can utilize this spell card if your enemy purposely drops her Minion around your Baby Dragon. You must always be prepared if this happens.

Hog Rider + Wizard Deck Arena 4 & Above:

Wizard Hog Rider Musketeer Spear Goblins
wizard.png hog_rider.png musketeer.png spear_goblins.png
Giant Bomber Tombstone Arrows
giant.png bomber.png tombstone.png arrows.png

Average Elixir Cost: 3.6


In the first minute, wait for the opponent’s first move before reacting. Drop the Tombstone oni the lane where they drop their beefy tank and carefully drop those counters in different places. Drop your Bomber if a ground troop is coming, or you can use your Wizard if an air troop was dropped. When you utilize either of these two, drop those Spear Goblins on the other side. Remember to always spread your troops to avoid any Fireball or Arrows to kill your defending troops. Given that you pressured the enemy's tower, make sure to reserve an extra troop, Wizard or Bomber, because there are times that your opponent will make a double lane push. By this, you can stop them easily in the second minute of the game.

2016-04-25-09-05-52-hog_wiz_arena_4.png Hog Rider + Wizard Deck Strategy For Arena 4 and Above
The Hog Rider's power is undoubtedly one of the most used cards in the game. His versatility is beyond normal that's why pairing him with any other troops is easy. Here's an effective deck for Arena 4 & above.

- Clash Royale Arena 4 Deck Without Baby Dragon or Prince

Giant Witch + Bomber Deck

Giant Knight Archers Bomber
Giant Knight Archers Bomber
Musketeer Arrows Witch Fireball
Musketeer Arrows Witch Fireball


Wait for the opponent to move and counter it. In this arena, swarm troops are usually used so this will be a great time to showcase the power of your splashers. Drop a Witch at the back of a tower. Then drop the Musketeer or the Bomber for full support. If being swarmed by the opponent’s troops drop your bomber at the back of your main troops or tower to help out get rid of those. If successful, drop a Giant ahead and let him tank everything in front. Bomber will keep your Giant away from being killed because of its splash damage.

Deck Strategies for Arena 5

Hog-Gob No Legendary Deck for Arena 5:

Arrows Bomber Goblin Barrel Hog Rider
arrows.png bomber.png goblin_barrel.png hog_rider.png
Mini P.E.K.K.A Minion Horde Skeleton Army Zap
mini_PEKKA.png minion_horde.png skeleton_army.png zap.png


The Ideal Strategy of this deck is to push with a Hog Rider together with the Bomber. Just before they reach the Tower, deploy the Goblin Barrel. This will make the Tower Archer lock on to the Hog Rider. The combined damage from the Hog Rider, Bomber, and the Goblin Barrel will surely demolish the opponent's crown tower.

Always have your Zap or Arrows ready for a direct counter.

Check the link below for full deck's strategy:

hog-gob-no-legendary.png Hog-Gob No Legendary Deck for Arena 5
Zap bait decks are becoming more and more popular in ladder matches. Test out your opponent's spells by sending out your Hog Rider with the Goblin Barrel and low HP units.

Lava Hound Deck for Arena 5

Lava Hound Hog Rider Wizard Spear Goblins
lava_hound.png hog_rider.png wizard.png spear_goblins.png
Valkyrie Fire Spirits Archers Baby Dragon
valkyrie.png fire_spirits.png archers.png baby_dragon.png


Drop the Lava Hound at the corner of your base. As it is slowly moving towards the opponent's side, counter any incoming units with the Valkyrie. If your Valkyrie survives, pair her with the Hog Rider to make a different push. You now have two kinds of pushes pressuring your opponent.

For the complete details of this deck’s battle strategy, check the link below:

2016-12-05-01-26-46-Lava_Hound_Deck_for_Arena_5.jpg Lava Hound Deck for Arena 5
Lava Hound is such a very powerful unit if you are around Arena 4 or Arena 5. Support it with a lot of splash damage and you will be winning a lot of trophies. Here is the deck for Arena 5 so you can easily climb the ladder!

Hog Rider + Prince Deck for Pushing Trophies in Arena 5:

Spear Goblins Barbarians Musketeer Zap
spear_goblins.png barbarians.png musketeer.png zap.png
Arrows Prince Hog Rider Baby Dragon
arrows.png prince.png hog_rider.png baby_dragon.png


Put your Baby Dragon at the farthest lane and wait until he is near the bridge. Drop your Hog Rider and put him at behind your Baby Dragon. This time, your opponent will definitely counter the cards with all their might. If you already have enough Elixir, put your Prince at the other lane to split push! Have your Zap ready just in case your enemy still retaliates.

2016-08-01-13-59-42-2.jpg Hog Rider + Prince Deck for Pushing Trophies in Arena 5

Sparky Golem Wizard Valkyrie

Spear Goblins Goblins Skeletons Elixir Collector
spear_goblins.png goblins.png skeletons.png elixir_collector.png


In the first minute of the game, drop your Elixir Collector once your elixir reaches 10. Prepare for defense. Usually, your opponent will take this as an advantage to push. Use your Goblins and Skeletons accordingly to stop any incoming troops. Or at least play your cards to have a damage control over your tower. Once defended, wait for your Elixir to reach its maximum capacity. Prepare for battle afterwards.

Average Elixir Cost: 4.3


Drop your Balloon near your tower and wait for your Elixir to load. Pair it with a Wizard to wipe any troops ahead. Once near the opponent’s tower, drop the Freeze spell at the tower. If counter troops were dropped near the tower, make sure to cover them with your Freeze, as well. Try using the Barbarians or the Baby Dragon to support your Balloon. Always prepare enough amount of Elixir to kill the counter troops by dropping your Arrows. For further information with a sample gameplay of this deck, check the link below.

Drop your Baby Dragonnear any of your towers and wait for a Wizardto be available. Make a combo for these two to stop any swarm troops that will counter them. Use the PEKKA once accessible, and drop her behind your King’s Tower. By doing this, you can wait for your Elixir to pump up and can make a support by any of your cards available. If possible, use the Baby Dragon or the Wizard. Bombercan also provide an epic damage for the ground troops. For more information about this deck, check the link below.

Average Elixir Cost: 3.6


Use the Tombstone as your starter card in the game. Place it in the middle of your base, to distract any incoming troops. Focus on one lane first by using your Barbarians or the Knight and some Archers behind. Once you have distracted your enemy, make another move in the opposite lane by dropping your Hog Rider with some support of your Spear Goblins. Use your Wizard as a defensive troop.

Goblin Barrel Golem Hog Rider Musketeer
goblin_barrel.png golem.png hog_rider.png musketeer.png
Skeleton Army Valkyrie Wizard Zap
skeleton_army.png valkyrie.png wizard.png zap.png


You can start by letting out the Goblin Barrel unto the opponent's tower. This will let you know what cards he has for countering. Drop the Valkyrie at the back of your King Tower and then place the Hog Rider behind her. During this Valkyrie + Hog Rider push, you can try another Goblin Barrel or support them with a Musketeer. Use the typical Trifecta strategy.

The Golem in your deck is a stand-by unit. Use it as an extra card to push or a surprise card during the double elixir mark.

Check the link below for full deck's strategy:

Mirror Skeleton Army Tombstone Zap
mirror.png skeleton_army.png tombstone.png zap.png


Start with your Elite Barbarians + Fire Spirits push right away. If Elite Barbarians are not available, you can have your Hog Rider + Fire Spirits. Always have your Zap ready, as they are both countered by the Skeleton Army. Use the Mirror card whenever necessary. Use it if your Skeleton Army is Zapped by the opponent. Have your Tombstone planted in the middle of your base too, as this can lure potential trespassers.

Check the article below for further deck explanation.

The Royal Giant is in front and backed up with the Wizard. Furnace is planted in the middle and the Fire Spirits are going on the same lane.

Goblin Barrel Furnace The Log Fireball
goblin_barrel.png furnace.png TheLog.png fireball.png


The ideal strategy for this deck is to plant your Furnace early as you try to bait the enemy with your Goblin Barrel. You will counter the enemy’s initial attack, as you prepare for a big counter push later on.

Continue countering with your units and when you feel like the opponent is over-reaching, make use of your Goblin Barrel and then Mirror it. This will gradually chip some damage. Maintain the pressure by sending in troop after troop and if you can, Mirror them.

Poison Prince Witch Zap
poison.png prince.png witch.png zap.png


The Ideal Strategy of the game is like your usual beat down deck. Start with the Elixir Collector at the middle of your base. Deploy your Giant behind your King Tower and wait for him to reach the bridge before putting the Witch behind him. Start another push by planting an Ice Golem and the Prince on the other lane. Use your Poison Spell whenever necessary against buildings and counters. For further explanation of the deck, check its own article here:

Start by having the Musketeer at the back of the King Tower. Before she reaches the bridge, drop your Hog Rider together with the Ice Spirit. She will take care of any counters while your Hog Rider is busy destroying the tower. You can use the Elite Barbarians for counters and a good counter-push. The Electro Wizard is there for any incoming push and pair him with the Inferno Tower for a quick and easy cleaning.

This is a chip-damage deck. Start with the Archers at the back of the King Tower. Upon reaching the bridge, drop the Hog Rider. Once he starts destroying the tower or get countered, drop the Graveyard spell. You can also do another strategy by having the Ice Golem in front of your Archers. If not countered, drop the Graveyard again on his tower. The slowing effect of the Ice Golem will give the Skeletons enough time to deal damage.

Just with other heavy decks, start with the Elixir Collector. Once you've already reached max, drop down the P.E.K.K.A at the back of your King Tower. Put the Executioner at the back together with your Ice Spirits. If your opponent is too busy countering your push, that is the best time to drop the Balloon.

Plant the Elixir Collector if you have it at the start of the game. Put down your Bowler first and then the Executioner or the Electro Wizard at the back of your King Tower.

The ideal strategy of this deck is to make an early advantage against the enemy. Having one of their towers weak will provide pressure all throughout the battle. You can try to attain this by making an early Hog Rider attack. You can try the Hog with Skellies and Ice Spirit mashup. Counter the enemy afterwards, use the abilities of the Bandit and the Electro Wizard as you cycle for the cards you need. Create a counter push and maintain your created pressure up to the last minute of the game.

The ideal strategy of this deck is to complete the Miner Poison with Bandit combo. Once you learned the strategy of the enemy, formulating the cards you need for offense and defense will be easier. Do not rush things while studying how to defeat the enemy. This deck is designed mainly to do the chip-in strategy. You can initialize an all-out attack or create a stiff counter push wave of troops during the battle.
