Meta Check

Rob and Joe discuss the current Meta, brought to us by our boy Lloyd Christmas (Devon):

  • Royale Ghost use rates at the top are down but it ain’t over.
  • Prince and Dark Prince usage is steadily on the incline. 
  • Skeleton Barrel has enjoyed a solid first couple of weeks but the Goblin Barrel wasn’t far behind.
  • Miner actually tied the temporary meta dominating troop. 
  • Poison’s usage rate is higher than Rocket, Fireball, AND Lightning COMBINED.

Deck Spotlight


Cast Royale’s Deck (3.1 AEC)

Cards: Prince, Hunter, Zap, Miner, Ice Golem, Bats, Poison, and Skeleton Barrel.

Copy to Deck

Decksplanation: This deck is a cycle POWERHOUSE! And – it’s the deck we would have submitted to a content creator challenge if we could have! Maybe one day 🙂

The deck is a prince spell bait deck, with the added benefit of a miner for annoying your opponent and constant chip damage, and the hunter for strong defense. Main push – skeleton barrel at the bridge followed by the Ice Golem. Prince is great for defense but presents insane counterpush potential. Bait out your opponent’s spell with your bait pushes – and then capitalize on that with your prince! When your hunter goes on the counter push, be sure to supplement that with a miner zap/poison combo.

Play the deck quick to keep pressure on your opponent and play slow only when facing golem decks. Enjoy Cast Royale’s Deck. BOOM!!

Great deck ideas by Syringeman, United States

I always liked playing mortar but after hearing about your mortar mauler I gave it a try. I changed skeletons with bats but other than that it’s the same got me over my 4100 trophy mark and I’m loving it.

Best Podcast by dwhatley31, United States   

Rob and Joe are the hosts of my favorite podcast. Every other week they provide me with data on any new updates, bug fixes and more, reveal an astounding deck spotlight for fans to try, and a complete Meta Check with the best data on what cards have been prevelent in the Meta over the past two weeks. And to top it all off, they Boom everything. When I finish the podcast, I almost start crying because I have to wait another 2 weeks for the next hodgepodge of everything. 🙁 But it is worth the wait. I am only in Arena 9, but even down there your information is useful. Keep the amazing podcasts coming!!! P.S I have an awesome deck that has boosted em from Arena 6-Arena 9. It includes Lava Hound, Baby Dragon, Mirror, E-Wiz, Goblin Barrel, Skarmy, Minion Horde, and the Arrows. The way you play this deck is to place the Lava Hound in the back at the start. Then, right before it reaches the bridge, you should have enough elixir for a Baby Dragon Mirror Combo. If the opponent throws down an inferno tower or an inferno Dragon, do one Baby Dragon and the Electro Wiz. You have the Skarmy and the Minion horde for defense and the arrows to take down a minion horde or minions if you have to. This deck is all about timing. Id you miss the E-wiz drop on an inferno tower/dragon, you may have lost the game.
