Deck Spotlight (01:09:00)

Rinse And Repeat (2.8 AEC)

Cards: Zap, Ice Spirit, Mega Minion, Fireball, Archers, Hog Rider, Ice Golem, Cannon

Decksplanation: This is a core hog cycle deck. You use the archers, the ice spirit, and the golem to assist your hog push each time. Since the cost is so low, the deck plays extremely fast. You really want to use your hog rider as often as humanly possible, while using the cards mentioned above to facilitate the push. The hog simply needs to hit the tower one or two times each push in order for you to win the game. The good thing about this deck, is that most of the time – you will make it to the tower. The other thing is that using the hog/fireball combo really ensures damage on their tower, and hurts their defensive buildings/troops. This deck (unlike other decks) doesn’t make you feel like you’re going all in on that combination, since your answers for defense are super inexpensive. Whenever you play the archers as your first card to cycle to other cards, be sure to put them behind your king tower so that they split up. This will give you options on offense, and will be conservative for defense. Ultimately, you will find yourself doing the old “rinse and repeat” – over and over again. Defend with small troops, cycle to hog/ice spirit, or hog/ice golem – and boom boom boom. This deck plays fast, and keeps your opponent on the defensive foot. Also, don’t be afraid to attack the opposite side of the map that your opponent is going for. It totally throws them for a loop, and unfortunately for them – they can’t ignore your pushes. Hog does too much damage, and requires a response. Double boom.
