The Mirror Deck's Unstoppable Offense in Arena 5
Mirror is probably one of the best spell cards in Clash Royale. It basically gives you a carbon copy of what you just drop. We built a Clash Royale deck to utilize this card.

Overview and Strength:

Mirror is a card that you can be unlocked once you reach Arena 5. It is very useful if you have a good deck for pushing. This is because it immediately doubles the power of your push. This is a spell card which can win you games if you can plan a good strategy.

The good thing about having a Mirror in your deck is its versatility. It copies the last card you drop so you can easily drop it again. It can be used for defense and offense. Lastly, it only adds one elixir cost to the card you recently drop.

Timing is key for this card. Use it for the important moments of the match. It will give you wins and the chance to save a tower if necessary.

Card Roles:

Average Elixir: 3.7

  • Mirror and Goblin Barrel - This is your main combo. The Goblin Barrel can take significant damage if it is not countered quickly. How about if you throw another one? It has a high chance to destroy the tower quickly.
  • Musketeer, Prince, and Witch - Here are other cards for the Mirror to use. These cards are mostly used for pushing. You can use either of the three and they will be almost unstoppable. Possible Replacement/s - Hog Rider (for Prince)
  • Spear Goblins - Just like on any other decks, they are used for distractions against opponent's units especially for derailing tanks like Prince and P.E.K.K.A.
  • Skeleton Army - They are used to dispose of any tanks. They can quickly swarm any units and can be troublesome once they reach a tower.
  • Barbarians - Just like the Spear Goblins, but these are more powerful in offense and defense. They can easily halt a push with their powerful DPS and decent HP.

Battle Strategy:

??Always wait for your elixirs to reach 10. This is to utilize the tower and to easily counter the opponent. Drop down a Witch or a Musketeer at the start of the game. This is to check what cards he has. You can plan the attack in the most appropriate way once you know his cards.

The main point of attack is to surprise your opponent. There are a variety of ways to do it as we have several cards that can deal heavy damage with the tower. If you throw a Goblin Barrel to his tower and he did not counter it with Arrows, then great. They will deal great damage for a short time. It also means you can use the Mirror to throw another one.

However, the mirror will only copy the last card you drop. Thus, you have to bargain whether to drop a different card or use the mirror. If you manage to see all his cards during the match, you can easily avoid wasting your mirror by planning accordingly.

If the Goblin Barrel + Mirror combo failed during the first 2 minutes of the match. Once the 60-second mark starts, quickly drop Witch at the back of your tower. Drop the Mirror after the Witch got some distance. This is to avoid a Fireball since they can easily get killed by it. Drop a Prince for the finishing blow. But this will only work assuming the 2 Witches and the skeleton they produced manage to defeat the counter.

Ideally, if you are able to drop Witch, Musketeer, and Prince in one lane, they are pretty unstoppable. If you use Mirror with Musketeers, they can easily kill cards like Baby Dragon.

In defense during the first 2-minute mark, if a tank is trying push, use the Barbarians. They have pretty high HP so you do not have to worry about a Baby Dragon attacking from above. Drop down a Musketeer if it is a Baby Dragon or Spear Goblins if it is Minion Horde. Only use Skeleton Army if you know the enemy lacks an AOE cards.

Deck Weakness:

The lack of defensive building like Cannon makes this deck become easy for tanks to focus on the towers. The lack of spell card except Mirror can be troublesome too. However, like what I mentioned above, the Mirror can be used both offense and defense depends on what card you drop.
