Deck Building Guide: The Slot Method

Clash royale deck building guide comes from MWolverine63. Thanks for making this! It’s a great guide!

In this deck building guide, I’m going to outline how I approach deck building, tweaking, and evaluating. I’m not a master, so feel free to let me know in the comments what I’ve missed! It’s general enough that almost all decks should fit under the guide, but some decks may not.

With that being said, let’s get to it!

If you would like me to analyze your deck in the comments, feel free to write it out!

3. Testing Decks:

1. Test in Friendlies with people near your trophy level
2. Test in a tourney
3. Test in the ladder after you are comfortable with the deck
4. Look back and see which decks you regularly lost to. If it was the same person, take it with a grain of salt as that person might just have an edge on you in skill.

That’s all I’ve got, thanks for reading!
