Deck Spotlight (00:44:00)
ElectroBoom! (3.1 AEC)
Cards: Skeleton Army, Log, Mega Minion, Fireball, Furnace, Goblin Barrel, Mirror, Electro Wizard
Decksplanation: This is the deck that allowed TheboomMan to get to 12 wins in the electro wizard challenge. At the core – this deck is a zap bait deck. Most people only have one or two cards that can deal with swarms of troops. If you can bait out your opponents typical counters early, you will easily win the game. At 10 elixir, you’re going to want to drop the furnace in the middle of the arena, a few tiles in front of your king tower. The furnace has great chip damage, and will defend against your opponents offensive pushes. Once you’ve set that up, use your goblin barrel to test the waters for a zap/log. Depending on what your opponent uses, you should mirror the goblin barrel for your opponent to deal with again (only this time one level higher and will not be killed by a zap!). You can also combine the first goblin barrel with a fire ball (especially if your opponent is defending against your goblin barrel with other troops). This will allow you to get massive damage on the tower. Plus – you still have your mirror to fireball their offensive troops, OR you’ve got the skeleton army queued up and ready to go on defense. The best part about defending with the skeleton army, is that your opponent is kind of stuck saving the zap/log for your goblin barrels otherwise they get seriously punished. So – if they zap your skeleton army, punish them hard. Don’t underestimate the value of the goblin barrel – it will allow you to win the game. Also – if your opponent is super offensive, be sure to not attack the same lane they are. Splitting up your opponents big pushes will make them very easy to deal with, since they can’t really develop a push that works. If they ignore your attacks – you win the game. Goblin barrel/fireball/furance is OP! BOOM!! Oh yeah – the Electro Wiz should be used to facilitate defensive counters, and then follow up with a goblin barrel when he crosses the river. The stun/goblin combination is just… brutal. BOOM!
The Best Offense Is Good Defense (3.4 AEC) [Brought to us by: Kevin D.]
Cards: Furnace, eBarbs, Mega Minion, Fireball, Log, Zap, Miner, Skeleton Army
Decksplanation: This deck has a lot of defensive counters. First – you’ll want to play the furnace. This will allow you to lure your opponents troops to the center of your battle field. If they don’t kill it – it will also provide some decent chip damage down the lane of your choice. The fire spirits that the furnace generates will REALLY help your elite barbarian (e-barb) pushes amazing. The support from the fire spirits will really help the e-barbs get to the tower. The mega minion is really used for support on defense. The fireball is both for offense and defense, depending on the situation of any given push. The log is used to simply help keep things off your furnace or tower; however, it can also be used very well for chip damage. The log can also be used well if you can predict a skeleton army drop (when your opponent is countering your e-barbs) and will leave them left with nothing to defend. The zap is really used to facilitate pushes, but is obviously great for defending vs. certain troops. The miner is not used that often – however, its purpose is to surpass your opponent. The skeleton army is really only used for defensive purposes. Expect it to be zapped or logged away.
The Night Shift (3.4 AEC)
Cards: Mega Minion, Archers, Zap, Fire Spirits, Graveyard, Tombstone, Freeze, Bowler
Decksplanation: The coolest thing about this deck, is that all of the cards are from Arena 7 or prior; however, its very good at the top of the meta. The deck is defensive in nature, but the offensive counter ability is amazing. React to your opponents offensive pushes with the Bowler, the Archers, and the Mega Minion (obviously not all at the same time). The tombstone is super valuable in this deck. It will help you slow the game down, while generating annoying skeletons that will allow you to take control of the game.
At 10 elixir, drop the tombstone on the lane you want to attack. Then – drop the bowler down the same lane. Once you have that combination down, you want to use your archers or mega minion. Be sure not to use all of your elixir, because once your troops get to the river, you’ll want to drop the Graveyard on your opponent’s tower. Note: Be sure to drop the Graveyard after the opponent’s archer tower is locked onto your Bowler. This will allow your little skeletons to destroy the tower. This combination forces your opponent to respond to the graveyard. If your opponent uses troops to counter your graveyard, you should have the Freeze queued up and ready to go so you can DESTROY those troops, and the tower. Be sure not to Freeze too early, otherwise you might miss their troops. Freezing their troops along with their archer tower will be the key for victory. The demise of this deck, is freezing too early – have patience, and you will have a significantly better chance of winning the game. Boom!

Good, but not helping me – Vexcrate, United States
I’m about 2 100 trophies, but I can’t seem to move. Please help me build an arena 7 deck. Please note that my only legendary is the Graveyard. (Got in a crown chest).

I’m very new to this podcast (I’ve only listened to the last two episodes) but it’s great. I’ll be honest, I was a little turned off at first by the overabundance of the word Boom, but I’ve gotten to where I just laugh at it. It’s pretty hilarious. Great tool to help me get better at a game I like a lot. Keep up the good work!

Love the podcast! I’m trying out rise and repeat but don’t think I’m doing it right. Getting my butt kicked. Can’t wait for the next episode.
