Legendary Arena Deck Spotlight: Aggressive Hog

BACKGROUND INFORMATION This deck is made to be played aggressively.  This deck is a variation of a hog cycle deck.  What makes this deck a little different from your average hog cycle deck is that this deck does not have a defense.  This makes it more aggressive but it lacks a little in defense.  It is a lot harder to defend from strong pushes, like royal giant and sparky, but a lot easier to defend from mid strength pushes.  By having no defenses, the troops that stay alive can help aid you in your counter push.  These troops that...

Defensive Towers 101- Everything You need to Know

Hey guys, over the past few days I’ve been seeing a lot of people requesting for a detailed insight into all the building cards, including inferno tower, cannon,etc. I will tell you guys all about them, including their Pros and Cons. The inferno tower is unlocked at P.E.K.K.A’s Playhouse (Arena 4). At level 1, it has 800 hitpoints, 50-1000 damage per second as the attack duration increases, and with a range of 6 tiles, costs 5 elixir.It can distract troops from far away. Moreover, it can target Air and ground troops and has a lifetime of 40 seconds. Let’s discuss the Pros of the inferno tower: Pros:  The inferno tower deals low damage in the beginning when it just strikes the target, but as the attack duration increases, the damage increases to more than 1000 per second, making it the best defense against high hitpoint troops like PEKKA, Golem, Prince,etc. The inferno Tower can target both Ground and Air units making it the best defense against air troops like the Baby dragon and the Lava Hound. Since it has a Range of 6 tiles,  It can distract and pull troops from far away towards itself, giving the arena tower some more time to kill it. The inferno tower has an appreciable amount of health and can single- handedly take down troops like the hogs and Valkyrie. Cons: The Biggest...

Legendary Deck Spotlight: Giant Balloon

BACKGROUND INFORMATION Today we are stepping away from the usual hog rider cycle decks or the royal giant decks and we are going to discuss an air deck.  This deck features the giant and balloon as the most offensive combo that specializes in air attacks.  Since the balloon card is an epic, some of you free to play players may not be able to use this deck as your epics are pretty low in level.  However, if you feel that your epics are high enough for the challenge, this just might be the deck for you.  This deck does contain the ice wizard as a legendary but it can easily be swapped out for the archers.  My personal evaluation of this deck is pretty advanced because facing an opponent with a lot of towers or not knowing how or what the opponent will counter with will make it a lot more difficult to pull off a win.  This deck also uses a legendary, the ice wizard, so some of you guys might want to rethink using this deck.  The ice wizard however can be easily swapped out for the musketeer or archers. BASICS: AVERAGE ELIXIR AND HOW TO USE EACH TROOP EFFICIENTLY  This deck has an average elixir cost of 3.6 elixir ans using the following cards: TROOPS: USED FOR DEFENSE AND OFFENSE.  IMPORTANT TO USE THE RIGHT COUNTER FOR EACH...

Arena 8 : The Anti-Royal Giant Deck

Hey everybody. Today I’m gonna be discussing about a deck that I’ve been using ever since the royal giant became a huge hit, rather over-powered. Firstly I’d like to discuss a little about the Royal Giant. The reason why i believe ( and many of you will) it’s over-powered is because firstly, it can out range ALL major defenses like the inferno, cannon, bomb tower etc when they are already placed on the arena, making him the best counter to them. Secondly, He has got this insane damage , about 190 at lv8, which makes it almost impossible to...
