Category 5 (4.1 AEC)
Cards: Golem, Dark Prince, Baby Dragon, Guards, Log, Mega Minion, Rocket, and Tornado
Decksplanation: This deck is a POWERHOUSE!! We called it category 5 and it’s no joke at all. The Golem is super tacky and super good int he current meta. And it also features the recently buffed, Dark Prince.
BUT – this deck doesn’t feature the elixir pump. So it’s not your “typical” beatdown deck. It’s only 4.1 cost is because of the Rocket – which is a really heavy spell. The rocket should be used sparingly, to kill pumps, or 3 musketeer. Normal push is to drop the Golem in the bank behind the king tower, and then drop your dark prince behind that. then… wait! Don’t use your mega minion too soon. You’ll want to use this card to target a specific defensive card dropped by your opponent. So make sure you hold off until you know where that card is. ALSO – Mega minion is the best defensive card you have in this deck – so be sure you have it when you need it most.
If no troops like this exist, and you’re not defending, have fun by dropping your baby dragon down. THEN – you’ll want to tornado EVERYTHING directly onto your golem. Because you’ll have AOE damage from the tornado itself + the baby dragon and dark prince. Also – when the golem dies, you want your opponents troops to be sitting on him, because the death damage is super powerful. Take this deck for a spin, and after a few tries, you’ll quickly see it turn into a Category 5 Hurricane. BOOM!
Tough matchups include: Log/Zap bait decks, and lava loon decks.
A huge shout out to this week’s newest patron!!!
Brian Van Buskirk!!! BOOM <3
