Meta Check

  • The Night Witch is sitting strong as the top win condition troop in the game.
  • What’s not used at all:
    • Cannon
    • RG
    • EBarbs
    • Mortar
    • Barbarians
  • These cards get used to get to the top, but are not used at the top.
  • There is a serious trend increasing use rates of the Knight and a reduction in the Ice Golem use rates.
  • RIP Skeletons, you’ve been withered down to a Larriless nothing.

Deck Spotlight


The Giant Skeleton (3.6 AEC)

Cards: Giant Skeleton, Ice Golem, Tombstone, Poison, Log, Electro Wizard, Graveyard, Archers

Decksplanation: This is a control oriented deck and should not be played like the splashyard deck. It’s not a counter push deck, instead you just counter your opponents attack and then use your ice golem/graveyard to push the opposite lane when you’re able to.

The giant skeleton should rarely be used offensively and the main purpose is to play defensively with it to take out your opponents win condition troops. Those that are typically behind tanks (I.e., Three Musketeers). This deck doesn’t work so well verse really fast GY cycle decks. The worst matchup however, is a lava loom because you don’t have much to take out the loon.

One of the best clash Royale podcasts – Dren13, United States 

The host are brothers and they seem like best friends, makes me wish I had a brother. Their enthusiasm for doing this podcast comes through in their preparation and execution of the podcast. Really great people and I wish them the best! Keep up the fantastic show.

I don’t even play clash royale – Seby Ninja, Australia 

Hi Cast Royale I never usually played clash royale but one day my friend was listening to your podcast so I tried it out. Now in two months I made it to hogs and because of your podcast I can happily play clash royale casually. Keep up the good work. Also shout out to my friend coen From seb

My favorite gaming podcast! – Boshuda99, United States

This is a fantastic podcast! Joe and Rob bring a perspective to the game like no other. They provide very helpful information to help you become a better player. They are also very entertaining to boot! I just checked out their profiles in the game, and was surprised to see that the decks they use all contain cards which I am able to acquire already. This gives me hope that I can climb to their mid-4000 trophy level at some point. I discovered this podcast a few weeks ago, shortly after I started playing Clash Royale. I am currently listening to episode 11, which means I have over 25 episodes to binge listen to! My only problem with the podcast is: what am I going to do when I get caught up on the episodes and have to wait a week to hear the next one? Keep up the great work guys! #BOOM From the clan MS PaperCompany

Cast Royale – The Best Podcast for any player! – Ghfhrjtkdhkfbyhysuf, Australia

Cast Royale is a great podcast that goes into great detail about the Clash Royale universe. I love the chest openings and I try all the decks from the deck spotlight. This is a great podcast and I recommend it to not just the casual player, but to ANY player. Keep up the good work guys!!!

I love the great podcast! This is the best podcast for Novice, Casual, and Advanced players. I am only in Arena 5 and this podcast is still fun and interesting to listen to! Joe and Rob (the BOOM bros) are hilarious and easy to listen to. I am constantly walking around with Joe and Rob plugged into my head. I have walked into many a pole while laughing out loud from rob and joe. Any clash player should love this lit podcast??? …BOOM
