Deck Spotlight (00:34:57)
Rider (4.0 AEC)
Cards: Elixir Collector, Log, Archers, Ice Golem, Golem, Mega Minion, Zap, Elite Barbarians
Decksplanation: This deck requires you to get the pump down. Once you do you’ll have the resource generation at your side. Defend with the archers, ice golem, mega minion, and e-barbs as needed. If you can develop a push from the back, you’ll want to drop the golem behind the king tower (after getting the pump down), then facilitate the push with archers and the mega minion. After that, and especially in double elixir time, you can counter push the other lane with the ice golem and e-barbs. This push is an “all in” type push, but it’s the kind of push that most opponents are 1) not used to defending against, and 2) not prepared to handle it. Take control of the game, and go for the three crown! Oh, and the log and zap are great for defense, but can really help your e-barbs get to the opponents tower. BOOM!
Yus (3.3 AEC)
Cards: Miner, Log, Princess, Inferno Tower, Zap, Minion Horde, Goblin Barrel, Skeleton Army
Decksplanation: This deck is a zap bait deck at its core. It’s defense and offense potential are tremendous, and easily make for a very frustrating match for your opponent. The key is to bait out a zap/log from your opponent on your cards. Most decks don’t have the ability to answer multiple repeating waves of swarm troops (i.e., minion horde, skarmy, goblin barrel, etc.). The inferno tower in this deck is pivotal. If your opponent doesn’t zap your tower to stop it’s stream of attack, they will have a VERY hard time getting past it. In fact they might need a fireball to facilitate their push to get them to your tower. Unfortunately for them, if they fireball or zap your inferno tower, you can punish them with plenty of damage from your swarm troops. The princess is super good in this deck, you’ll likely want to use her to bait out a log (or if your opponent uses a log on your goblin barrel or your skarmy, she’s probably free to shoot from the edge of the river). The miner in this deck helps get solid chip damage in over the course of the game. Don’t be afraid to use him along with a fireball to get very good damage in on the tower. Remember, if they zap! They LOSE!!!! Punish them hard. BOOM!
kelMMjesT (3.5 AEC)
Cards: Mega Minion, Archers, Zap, Graveyard, Giant, Fireball, Tombstone, Skeleton Army
Decksplanation: This deck, at its core is simple to play. Defend with your archers, tombstone, and mega minion. At ten elixir, drop the giant in the back behind the king tower. Back that up with one of the above three defending troops (that weren’t already deployed). After that, queue up the graveyard and deploy as soon as the giant crosses the river. Let the skellies start building up and prep your Zap or your Fireball to clear whatever they throw down for defense. Fireball is super effective because it usually clears their defense and also does solid chip damage on the tower over the course of the game. Don’t be afraid to go for the gold with this deck, it packs a HUGE punch and is clearly a force to be reckoned with, seeing as it took first place in the tourney ?????
