Rob and Joe discuss the current meta, brought to us by Lloyd Christmas!
Super solid deck in the current meta: Hog Rider, Mini Pekka, Princess, Ince Golem, Bats, Ice Spirit, Rocket, and Log.
This deck is a really good hog/rocket cycle deck. The presence of the Bats has seemingly made a huge impact on the game. The Princess/Ice Golem/Ice Spirit combo really hits them hard. Also, these tandem allows space for the Log to be used, over the Zap.
New version of the “Loblin”: Miner, Minion Horde, Bats, Princess, Goblin Gang, Log, Goblin Barrel, and the Ice Spirit.
- Mega Minion
- Ice Spirit
- Electro Wizards

Boom It or Moob It
Special Theme: Think-Tank in Discord!!!!!
- Cards that impact the effect of other cards (i.e., a spell or troop that does more damage to a unit that is Frozen, or Slowed, or Poisoned, etc.)
- Haste spell! – A card that acts in a similar capacity as the Rage spell, but does not buff attack speed. Only buffs movement speed. Cost 2 (instead of 3).
- Earth Spirit – 1 Cost – Tunnels to the nearest ground troop, and does small area damage and pushback. Resets Targeting.
- We need a 10 cost card in the game. This card cannot be mirrored.
- Minion Spawner.
- Sparky needs a buff to be viable.
A very special thank you to all our Discord members for consistently pouring out their ideas in our Think-Tank! Keep ’em coming!!!
We open chests round robin style, starting with the least rare, then moving to “The big dogs”!

Cards: Lava Hound, Furnace, Minions, Inferno Dragon, Goblins, Lightning, Miner, Mega Minion
Decksplanation: This deck is your ultimate beatdown deck. Not in the form of a Golem/Lightning, but instead, in the form of a Lava Hound Lightning. This deck can pack a bigger punch than your opponents deck, so you need to be willing to take some damage on your tower in order to win the game. Play the deck slow, and you have a better chance to win. Play the deck fast, and there’s a good chance you’ll lose.
This deck doesn’t have splash spell damage (like Zap or Arrows or Fireball) to assist your lava hound. Therefore you’ll need to focus on getting your furnace down before setting up your lava hound. This way you have support / splash damage for the hound. If your opponent is dropping singular troops with decent health (i.e., musketeer, EWiz, etc.), wait for the lava hound to cross the bridge and swag them out with the Lightning (BOOM).
The miner should be used for 1) killing pumps, and 2) tanking tower damage while the lava pups burst out and deal damage. This forces a spell out of your opponent, and you’ll be free to now drop your minions. The goblins are great, but need to be used sparingly. They are your only bandit defense, which is popular in this current meta. Inferno dragon is quite simply your only good defense for tanks. Use him wisely, and keep your opponent’s EWiz or Ice Spirit off of it.
