Sakuyamon07’s Clash Royale Hot Deck List Vol. 3

img_4811

I’m back! Here comes Sakuya’s Hot Deck List again. While the Tornado is still trying to find its place in the meta, the Graveyard seems to have found its way in a number of competitive decks. A recap of the top 5 from my last list.
5- X-bow Protector
4- Legendary Beginner’s Deck
3- Miner Princess Power Deck
2- LOG in and out
1- Love the Log

5) Road to Graveyard
Cards:
Graveyard
Fireball
Zap
Tombstone
Skeleton Army
Giant
Archers
Mega Minion

Details: This deck might be weak against only one type of deck: the heavy air troop decks. Aside from the spells, the Archers and the Mega Minion are the only ones that can deal with air troops. This deck utilizes Graveyard by putting it behind or in front of opponent’s tower while the Giant is on the push. You can also split push if you have a powerful counter on your opponent.

Possible Replacements:
Graveyard- Goblin Barrel (maybe)
Fireball – Arrow
Zap – Log (but requires Minions)
Tombstone – Cannon
Skeleton Army – Minion Horde
Giant – Hog Rider
Archers – Spear Goblins
Mega Minion – Musketeer

4) Log in and out 2.0
Cards:  (Version 1.0)
Log
Elixir Collector
Ice Spirit
Mini P.E.K.K.A.
Miner
Princess
Three Musketeers
Knight

(Version 2.0)
Log
Mega Minion
Miner
Knight
Rocket
Arrow
Tombstone
Archer

Details: The comeback of Skeleton Army and the popularity of Minion Horde are the main reasons for the necessity to update this deck to Version 2. The Mini P.E.K.K.A. is replaced by the Mega Minion, which can deal with air troops. The Three Musketeers are replaced by the much cheaper Archers. The Elixir Collector is removed to give another slot for a spell, which in this case is the Rocket. The Princess is also replaced by Arrows, and the Ice Spirit is replaced for a building, which is the Tombstone. This deck is more balanced than the first version, but still have a similar strategy since the Log, miner, and knight (key cards) haven’t replaced.

3) Princess swarm deck
Cards:
Princess
Ice Spirit
Goblin Barrel
Log
Hog Rider
Minion Horde
Inferno Tower
Skeleton army

Details: This deck lacks spells, but the troops can somewhat replace the effect of spells such as Arrows if played properly. Princess can be used to replace Arrows for dealing with Minion Hordes, and Log will be key for dealing with ground swarms like Skeleton Army. This deck doesn’t have a tank, that is why the opponent will have a hard time in doing a counterpush. For offense, you will rely on the Hog Rider and the Goblin Barrel to deal cheap damage over time. You can use Skeleton Army and Minion Horde to bait spells before attacking with the Goblin Barrel.

Revised version: (cycle deck)
Princess
Ice spirit
Goblin Barrel
Log
Hog rider
Minions
Tombstone
Skeleton army

2) Golem Lightning Log Deck
Cards:
Golem
Lightning
Mega Minion
Baby Dragon
Archers
Tombstone
Zap
Log

Details: You might have read my guide in building golem decks. The three spells combination here will help stop opponent counterpushes. Lightning can destroy 3 medium hitpoint troops, or 2 troops plus some damage at the tower. Zap will stun Inferno Towers and swarms, and Log will be effective against ground swarms.
Support your Golem with Archers and Baby Dragon. If your opponent doesn’t know how to counter Golem, you’ll be a good position to win. This is one well-balanced deck.

Replacements
Golem – Giant
Lightning – Rocket
Mega Minion – Musketeer
Baby Dragon – Bomber
Archers – Spear Goblins
Tombstone – Cannon or Furnace
Zap – Arrow
Log – Fireball

1) Hog and Log Siblings
Cards:
Hog rider
Log
Ice Golem
Archer
Mega Minion
Ice Spirit
Fireball
Tombstone

Details: All of us might have some time or another encountered the high risk, high return classic Hog-Fireball combination. Now here’s a much lower risk combination, and a higher chance for a positive Elixir trade.
Here are some combinations:

Offense:
Hog rider + Log + Ice Spirit
Ice Golem + Hog rider + Log

You can use Fireball if necessary and add these combinations with your defense troops for the counter. Fireball should be mainly used to destroy buildings that distract the Hog Rider, like the Tombstone or Cannon.

Defense:
Archers against low to medium hp troops
Mega Minion for high hp troops
Tombstone as a distractor and spawner

Replacements:
Hog rider – Royal Giant
Log – Zap
Ice Golem – Knight
Archers – Minions
Mega Minion – Musketeer
Ice Spirit – Spear Goblins
Fireball – Lightning
Tombstone – Furnace

Now here comes my deck that I’ve use this week.

Sakuya’s Deck: Trifecta Rage deck
Cards:
Hog Rider
Valkyrie
Musketeer
Cannon
Skeletons
Elixir Collector
Zap
Rage

Details: In my list, this is at number 9 (just the Trifecta combination, not my Rage version). I wonder why Trifecta has drop popularity since the big update last September, but now I am giving it another shot. I used it in the challenge mode and managed to have 5 wins; not bad especially since It’s been a long time since I have used it.
