1. The Dual Prince Combo Deck

Replacement cards

Prince → Pekka
Spear Goblins → Goblins
Arrow → Zap

Prince + Dark Prince Deck Strategy

First rule to remember: NEVER use all of your elixir or deploy your main card to push enemy tower at the beginning of the match. We do not have any clue about what your opponent’s cards are.

It is better to send your Spear Goblins to scout enemy’s cards and plan the counter push strategy later. Afterward, drop barbarians on the other side to check further. If your opponent deploy expensive troops (Pekka, Royal Giant…), you can now deploy your Dual Prince combo at the same time on the empty lane to surprisingly push Arena Tower. Use your Minion Horde, Elixir Collector and Spear Goblins to defend and trade off.

Cheap, horde of troops is a hard counter against Dual Prince. In case your Dual Prince are covered by swarm troops, use Arrows/Fireball to clear them out.Therefore, always make sure your spell are ready when deploying Dual Prince.

2. Giant + Three Musks Deck

Replacement cards

Goblins → Skeletons
Giant → Hog Rider

Giant Three Musketeers Deck Strategy

Devastating pushing potential – Very aggressive deck with strong pushing power. Follow the first rule I have mentioned above to check opponent’s cards. If your opponent uses too much elixir in a turn, you should now start your pushing strategy: Deploy your Giant to force your enemy drop their cards to defend, and deploy him near your arena tower to allow your elixir resource regenerates enough for Three Musketeers and Witch. Next, drop your Witch and then drop your Three Musketeer, along with Rage spell on them to take down tower quickly. This combo is very deadly to those who don’t have AOE spell. Make sure to plant your Elixir Collector to gain some extra resources.

However, this combo can be counter easily by a high level Fireball, leaving you vulnerable to the counter attack as you spent all your elixir on your combo. Your Three Musketeers must have higher or equal level to the Fireball to survive. Hence, only drop your 3 lovely girls after your opponent’s Fireball.

3. Royale Giant + Hog Rider Combo Deck

Replaced cards

Witch → Baby Dragon, Princess

Royale Giant + Hog Rider Deck Strategy

Because of the Royal Giant’s ability, not only can he destroy defensive buildings while staying at a safe distance, but his ability also make him a shield and distract enemy troops and towers. Make sure to drop Royal Giant behind the King Tower or Arena Tower to allow the elixir to regenerates. When he moves, you can drop some Goblins or a Witch behind him to support and kill opponent’s troops. Hog Rider can be placed when Royal Giant walks to the bridge. Get your Zap ready so your Hog can have some free time to deal damage to Tower.
