The PPP deck witnessed a falling out in popularity after the 11th elixir nerf. Nevertheless, P.E.K.K.A and Dark Prince have made their ways back to the meta with this new Trifecta deck, along with the Wizard to form a combination.
Overview: The original version consists of Hog, Valkyrie and Musketeer as the 3 cores, having same roles as P.E.K.K.A, Dark Prince and Wizard respectively. P.E.K.K.A serves as tank and a threat to your opponent due to her extremely high damage, while Dark Prince and Wizard offer great utilities as well as decent AoE damage. We also have Mini P.E.K.K.A as a defensive core, dealing huge damage to common threats such as Royal Giant, Hog, Miner, Sparky… Despite having such high cost troops, we also include Zap and Skeletons, thus the average elixir cost is about 4.0, providing that Elixir Collector can supply enough elixir for our combo.
Your P.E.K.K.A and Dark Prince should be at least lvl 4, while the Wizard is lvl 7 to make this deck effective. U can replace Dark Prince with Valkyrie if she has a good level.
P.E.K.K.A Trifecta Deck Offensive Strategy
Your ideal wombo combo would be P.E.K.K.A + Dark Prince + Ice Wizard, yet P.E.K.K.A + Dark Prince, P.E.K.K.A + Wizard or Mini P.E.K.K.A + Dark Prince is still deadly to deal with. These combos cost at least 11 elixir, so placing down Pump is a must.
Basically, when you already have an EC, you should drop P.E.K.K.A behind your King Tower. When she nearly reach the bridge, Wizard and Dark Prince should be deployed right behind P.E.K.K.A to support her. This combo is almost unstoppable unless your opponent has Inferno Tower and use split defense technique. In that case, you should perform the double lane pressure strategy by the aforementioned combos rather than make a really big push (e.g. drop a P.E.K.K.A on a lane, while deploy Mini P.E.K.K.A + Wizard on the other lane to put pressure on both lanes).
Only deploy P.E.K.K.A after your opponent has dropped his cheap troops like Gobs, Horde, Skeletons or her counter like Inferno Tower.
P.E.K.K.A Trifecta Deck Defensive Strategy
Mini P.E.K.K.A is our defensive core here, as she can take down big threats like Royal Giant or Hog without too much struggling. In case your push combo is powerful enough to take the tower down, you can consider to send her out to support the push further.
Sometimes you should save your Wizard for defense, as his splash damage is fantastic for melting supporting units like Barbarians.
When your opponent decides to use the 1 lane pressure technique on the lane opposite to the one you are pushing, your best bet is to keep pushing with your combo and use the Split Defense Technique with your Skeletons, as they are great distractions tool. With only 1 elixir, they are time-consuming to opponent’s pushes if being placed correctly.
This Trifecta deck is very vulnerable against Air-Beatdown Deck (LavaLoon) as you have only Wizard and Poison to deal with air units. The only thing you can do and MUST do is to continue your push and acquire the 3 crowns victory, while delay their push by using Poison, Wizard and Zap. Do not hesitate to place Pump to aggro their air units if you need to.
P.E.K.K.A Trifecta Deck Tips
- It would be perfect if your starting hand contain an Elixir Collector! Just place it down whenever possible to ensure the elixir for our combo, and to force your opponent to make a move as well. In case you don’t have Pump at the beginning, just deploy Skeletons or Dark Prince from the Arena Tower area to cycle through the deck and bait out your opponent. Having 2 Pumps is recommended. Although this is a Threat-Beatdown deck, we have to play defensively in the early stage, as this deck relies heavily on the Elixir Pump.
- Poison is pretty situational in this deck. If your opponent focuses on defending your combo, it should be used as an offensive tool to deal chip damage to tower and take down swarms.
- Zap is very effective in defense, especially against Minion Horde, Barbarians, Three Musketeers or even Sparky. Use it wisely to trade off and make an immediate counter push. You can also use Zap to prevent Royal Giant/Hog from doing an attack.

In this video, Ash used a different version from our deck. Technically, this deck still has the same trifecta combo, just different defensive troops.
