The two cards that got a boost this season work very well together. Use this P.E.K.K.A Witch deck to cause havoc in Arena 8.


With the recent updates in June 2016, the P.E.K.K.A and the Witch got a good boost. The P.E.K.K.A damage increased by 8%. The Witch damage has increased by a whopping 17%. It was quite obvious that players are going to start making Clash Royale decks with these two cards. So be prepared because you are going to see a lot of P.E.K.K.As and Witches very soon.


Even though this deck has P.E.K.K.A, it is still relatively cheap at 4.5 elixirs. That does not mean you should drop all cards at once for a big push. Conserve your elixirs and do a slight big push, but always keep a few elixirs for the counter. Not only is it a P.E.K.K.A + Witch deck, but you can also do the Balloon + Witch combo if the P.E.K.K.A failed.

Unstoppable Witch Pekka Deck in Arena 8:

Card Roles:

  • P.E.K.K.A: The P.E.K.K.A can be considered the main guy of this deck, but the Witch is definitely a good contender. The P.E.K.K.A is a tank! Slow but very powerful.
  • Valkyrie: Play the Valkyrie when you see a big wave coming. Watch her wipe the floor with almost everyone. Overall, she's a very good counter against many counters.
  • Musketeer: The ground and air hitter. Most people don't realize that she is capable of bringing the tower down all by herself. A good range card for attack and defense.
  • Witch: With the recent update, the Witch becomes even more powerful. She is a great card to play behind your tank cards like P.E.K.K.A or the Giant. Her skeletons are also capable of taking down your opponents tank cards.
  • Balloon Not played as much anymore, but this card can surprise your opponent and deliver massive damage to towers in combination with Freeze. Just make sure to play it when you know your opponent does not have Minion Horde.
  • Freeze: This spell card can stop anything it touches, letting your troops finish off opponent troops or do massive damage to towers.
  • Arrows: Great for eliminating swarms like Minion Horde or skeleton Army.
  • Ice Wizard: A great card for defensive purposes as it slows down enemy troops and deals damage at the same time. It is great for buying you time.

Clash Royale Strategy:

As always, wait for your 10 elixirs. Drop your P.E.K.K.A first behind your tower so your elixir count has time to replenish. After that, drop the Witch so she can start releasing skeletons and provide support for the P.E.K.K.A. Drop either your Ice Wizard or Musketeer for extra support. If your P.E.K.K.A makes it to the tower, which most likely it will, you can Freeze the tower and surrounding troops so you can deliver extra damage to the towers. If your opponent counter is very good, drop the Valkyrie instead of the Ice Wizard. Counter with remaining cards.

At one minute into the battle, if you see your opponent did not have Minion Horde, you can change your P.E.K.K.A combo to a Balloon Witch combo if your opponent is countering your P.E.K.K.A every time. Keep your Arrows ready for when they use low HP troops.

At 2X elixir time, start using your Valkyrie as a counter card. Try not to use her as much as an offensive card. Since it is 2X elixir time, you can expect huge waves of enemy troops to come, and what card better to counter with than the Valkyrie. Then use the P.E.K.K.A Witch combo, and if you see it is safe, drop the Balloon when the coast is clear to possibly take down the tower.


The weakness to this deck is an aerial heavy deck. Just by your opponent having Baby Dragon can provide a challenge for this deck. So, always keep Arrows ready for those pesky Minion Hordes.
