Hog + Valkyrie is one of the best combo that helps you to break out the P.E.K.K.A’s Playhouse to push into Arena 5 without struggling too much!
Overview: This Arena 4 Hog deck has no Epic card, while including 3 Rare cards which are Hog, Valkyrie and Bomb Tower. With only 3.6 average Elixir cost, this is an ideal deck to execute the cycle strategy focusing around Hog + Valkyrie, while also excel in defending with the presence of Bomb Tower and Minion Horde!
Hog + Valkyrie Deck Offensive Strategy
Our main combos would be Hog Rider + Valkyrie, with Valk at the front to wipe out swarms and Hog behind her to head straight into the Tower. You can add support troops behind further such as Spear Goblins or Goblins. On the other hand, Hog + Goblins or Hog + Spear Gobs are also viable to execute some small pushes toward enemy’s Towers. You will most likely include Minion Horde in your combo during a counter-attack after a successful defense.
All cards in this deck are versatile, thus you can be either offensive or defensive in strategy rather than force yourselves into a fixed tactic. It is possible to wait for your opponent’s move and defend effectively, then perform a big counter push, or you can just send out Hog + Valkyrie combo at the very beginning of the match . Anyway, it depends on your play style. The general idea here is to constantly keep the pressure on enemy’s side by aforementioned combos, while defending effectively with your cheap troops and Bomb Tower, especially Minion Horde.
During the double elixir time, you can now continually put pressure on enemy using the Hog + Valkyrie + cheap troops combo. Try to defend successfully and include Minion Horde in your counter push which will make your combo devastating if your opponent does not have Arrows. You can also utilize the Double lane pressure strategy to make your opponent harder to counter.
Hog + Valkyrie Deck Defensive Strategy
Main defensive cores: Minion Horde, Arrows, Fireball, Bomb Tower.
Against Tank-Beatdown deck, Bomb Tower should be deployed in the middle sweet spot to lure their tanks, and you can drop Goblins or Minion Horde to take them off. Be careful of their Arrows when playing these troops! Otherwise, you can do the double 1 lane pressure technique to force your opponent to defend, thus their tanks cannot receive backup further.
Spawner deck: Would not be a problem as our Bomb Tower will completely shut down troops spawned from those annoying Huts. As soon as they drop their Hut, you should do the double 1 lane pressure strategy on the other lane as they will have little elixir left.
P.E.K.K.A + Prince deck – With Minion Horde plus our cheap troops, we can easily deal with those huge threats by luring them as much as possible, using the split defense technique with Spear Gobs and Goblins, while Minion Horde will take care of them.
Hog cycle deck – Against an alone Hog you can simply use a Bomb Tower in the center sweet spot to kite him, and let the Arena Towers finish him off. If your opponent send out small combos with Hog, Minions + Zap + Skeletons should be fine to counter them.
