Giant Annoyance Deck

BACKGROUND INFORMATION I caled this the Giant Annoyance deck because this deck has one of the best defenses in the game.  This deck will annoy pretty much any player because this deck can play very hard defense.  If you are down to 1000 health on one of your arena or crown towers and they do not use spells to damage that crown or arena tower, you can play in a way in which they will not get that tower down.  Instad, you can stall them for a few minutes until time runs out and you tie or they rage quit and you win.  This deck uses a ton of beginning arena cards which makes it very possible to have high level cards.  This deck will work in every arena, provided that you have the cards.  This deck also counters the two most popular decks right now.  This deck can easily counter the royal giant because your mini pekka can completely eliminate an enemy royal giant with a few swings.  The same goes for an enemy hog rider decks because the mini pekka can kill any level hog in only two swings.  This deck can also counter barbarians very easily because your fire spirits can damage the barbarians to the point where they can get one shotted by your arena or crown tower.   At 3.1 elixir, this is a...

Miner Deck

BACKGROUND INFORMATION This deck is perfect for people who want a fairly cheap deck that is strong on defense.  The mini pekka and barbarians are both super strong defenses and the cannon can provide further distraction to troops if you are in a desperate situation.  On top of those defenses, you can use the ice spirit and the zap spell to have a total combined time of three seconds to stall.  If you just have one additional troop defending, that troops can get three whole seconds of free damage which can end up being over 1000 damage to your enemy push and troops.  This deck can also defend against hut spamming decks fairly well because of your miner, which you can send to destroy enemy goblin huts, barbarian huts, furnaces, and tombstones, and your princess which can easily eliminate small targets from a far distance and help destroy the hut buildings with her area of effect attack.  This deck is not for the person who likes to build up trifecta pushes or any type of push above 15 elixir.  This is because most of your troops are very cheap and the purpose of this deck is not to make an uncountable push, but to slowly weaken your enemy defenses and counters enough and get enough chip damage off to eventually destroy one of your enemy’s towers.  This deck will...

Spirit Deck

BACKGROUND INFORMATION This is a fun deck to use because of a few reasons.  The first reason is how fast pace this deck is.  Because it is under a three elixir average for the cost of this deck, you can always be on the offense.  Additionally, if you are in dire need for a quick defense, you can stall for a long time because you can keep on cycling through all your very cheap cards.  Out of your eight cards, six of them are at or under three elixir.  This can make for some clutch defensive or constant pressure in your enemy lane.  At double elixir, you can pump through your cards even faster.  The combination of using your hog rider, your ice spirit, your fire spirit, and your zap can stop any barbarians you may encounter on the way, and put on heavy damage to your enemy tower while stunning if for three whole seconds.  This deck, even being so cheap in elixir, can do well against splash damage focused decks.  This is because you have the barbarians.  The barbarians are your highest health and highest damage troops that can help you kill wizards, valkyries, witches, and other annoying area of effect troops you may run into while battling in the arena.  The minions in this deck also allows you to get very high elixir trades off ground...

Sparky Goblin Barrel Deck

BACKGROUND INFORMATION This deck is a very cheap but a good deck overall.  This deck has multiple offensive pushes to choose from which will keep your opponent on their toes.  You can do the giant sparky push, the giant goblin barrel push, the goblin barrel zap spell push, or the giant, sparky, and goblin barrel push if you have enough elixir to spend.  This deck is catered to people who like fast game play over the slower sometimes more strategical game play that is building up a huge offensive attack all in one go.  This deck does contain a legendary card which may be hard for some of you guys to obtain.  If you do want to try something similar to this deck but you d not have the sparky card, you can always switch it out for the balloon.  The balloon also has good damage per second, is mid tier health, and costs about the same so it would be a fairly good replacement card.  This deck is fairly strong against almost any decks because it has the high instant damage coming from the sparky, has the strong defense on the mini pekka through its high damage and high attack rate, and both your fire spirits and ice spirit can provide a very strong three elixir defense. BASICS: AVERAGE ELIXIR AND HOW TO USE EACH TROOP EFFICIENTLY  The...

Hog Lightning Deck For Arena Five

BACKGROUND INFORMATION The hog rider lighting deck is a great combo to use because the lightning can support the hog rider very well.  The lightning spell can destroy an enemy defensive tower fairly easily.  The goblins and spear goblins also help your deck build out by having an opportunity to have a quick defense just in case you are ever really low on elixir.  The baby dragon provides splash damage that can help destroy swarms of troops or just to kill ground troops for free.  The barbarians and minion horde both can do a great job defending as they both...
