It certainly didn’t take long before we forgot our troubles for a moment, and got lost in the ‘bright melodies and happy synths’ of Morani’s original song, “Bring Me Life“. But that only scratches the surface of why we’ve partnered with songwriter, and the creative mind behind this electronic dance music passion project, Daniel G.

Rocket may drop me, but your Log cannot stop me.

Spark Plug (3.3 AEC)
Cards: Sparky, Hog Rider, Skeleton Barrel, Bats, Goblin Gang, Inferno Dragon, Barbarian Barrel, Zap
Decksplanation: This sparky bait styled deck has 5 different cards in it that are good zap targets for your zap. The only problem, is if your opponent picks the wrong one – they will pay – BIG TIME! This deck features the hog rider, and the sparky – which makes for difficult defending choices. Because the hog is so fast, your opponent will typically put their answer for the hog closer to their own tower. If they do that, then they will have a range disadvantage against the sparky and will just get annihilated.
To start, have sparky in the back to build up a charge. Next, you want to drop the skeleton barrel at the river. Once that has aggro, drop the hog rider down. This will create a train, of skeleton barrel, hog, and sparky. The barrel tanks for the hog – BUT – when the barrel pops, it deals death damage to protect the Hog. Also the hog itself will now take aggro on the tower, and will have to spend more elixir to kill the skeletons. If all that’s not enough – SPARKY is coming down the road with an electric swag in her step ready to drop whatever threats your opponent dropped. Be sure to save goblin gang, barbarian barrel, and bats to counter your opponents answers. Barb barrel is great for killing gob gang, skeleton army, or guards that are dropped on top of your sparky. Bats are great AFTER your opponent uses Zap or tornado. The goblin gang is wonderful after your opponent plays a log, or a zap.
Capitlizing on your opponents use of bait cards will truly allow this deck to have it’s highest potential. If you just play everything at the bridge like a bridge spam – one tornado – one zap – on fireball – one rocket – one poison, literally anything – will kill you. This deck needs to be played in a specific order, and then methodically to capitalize on your opponents plays accordingly. Develop the push, be patient, capitalize an win. Take the deck for a spin – and give it about 15 games before you feel truly comfortable with it. Boom!
A huge shout out to this week’s newest patron!!!
