The Loblin (3.3 AEC)
Cards: Princess, Log, Rocket, Knight, Goblin Barrel, Goblin Gang, Inferno Tower, Ice Spirit
Decksplanation: This deck is super good in the current meta, and it’s the deck that allowed Joe to get to the 17 wins in CCGS. This is an easy deck to start to play, but a very hard deck to master. Throwing a goblin barrel is easy to just throw at a tower; however, learning when to do it and how to throw it, it hard.
This deck is full of squishy troops, and only has one tank in the deck, in the Knight. This is the cheapest tank int he game that can attack back. The benefit of having the knight, over the ice golem, is that you get more defense, and offensive capabilities. This deck requires you to ANNOY your opponent until no end. If you bait their log, or arrows, etc. with your goblin barrel, it will be hard for them to counter your other troops (like the princess, or goblin gang). Use your ice spirit to cycle, or to allow your knight or goblin gang to get additional hits on defensive.
Be sure to split your troops up – if they all get killed to one spell, you will lose the game very simply. Split up troops – and you have the best chance of winning. If you split up your troops, it splits up your opponents pushes, and it allows you to more easily defend their attacks (and makes their attacks less effective). Inferno tower should be used to kill tanks in tricky situations – it’s your life saver. Use the rocket to punish you’re opponent, and to cycle damage at the end for a finisher.
Dear Rob and Joe, I am writing this review because your podcast is purely amazing! I love each segment and the time and effort you guys put into the entire episode! I enjoy when not only I laugh at a joke or comment you guys say but I love when you guys laugh at each other’s jokes or comments in a way that really emphasizes your unbreakable brotherly love.(By the way you don’t have to read this part out loud if you happen to read this on the podcast) If you ever get a chance to I would love for you guys to feature a deck similar to the furnace challenge deck! It includes the pekka, battle ram, ice wizard, log, minions, baby dragon, ice spirit, and zap. It got me into hog mountain! Anyway I would finally like to say that every episode you release I watch and I really REALLY!! Enjoy your podcast and I think you two are great guys.
