Offense This is a high skill cap deck
The X-Bow, once locked on to a tower will do big damage.
You can also do a Rocket cycle if facing a hard counter.
Defense You can also use your X-Bow for defense after finishing a tower.
Use the Ice Golem to tank and the rest of your troops to defend.

Offensive Cards:

These are the cards you use for offensive pushes or offensive attacks:

  • Note - These two are your offense cards. If you're faced against a hard counter like Golem decks or Rockets, do a Rocket cycle. For everything else, use the X-Bow on offense and after destroying a tower place a defensive X-Bow at the middle of your base.

Win Conditions:

These cards can let you win the game or beat a tower when ignored by the enemy:

You use the spell for attacking, defending, or countering:
