Today we have Happy Noob aka Viper is back on my channel sharing this deck while he plays live on ladder against some of the best players in the world! One of the most important rules to remember when using this deck is the best defence is a good offence, i this prevents your opponents from supporting their push the way they want to because they have to spend their elixir defending. Learn what damage your spells do when paired together, this can be important towards the end of the match when you’re spell cycling because no one likes to lose with one HP on their tower. This deck is very robust defensively and can beat almost any deck out there! (Unless it’s played by me) Against Royal Giant decks you will need to defend and immediately counter push, you can use your Tornado and ice spirit to help prevent RG hits while using the executioner or Valkyrie defensively depending on what they have in cycle. Against heavy tank decks I recommend pressuring opposite lane with the hog and using your executioner and tornado combo on defence. Always have your spells ready too! Graveyard matchups are fairly straight forward, you can stop the tank at the bridge and use goblins or log to help deal with the skeletons or play Valkyrie defensively and kite their tank away with the hog. Activate king tower if possible to!
Executioner will be an important defensive unit. He combos extremely well with the Tornado especially against the annoying lavaclone deck which is every where at the moment! Him and the Valkyrie also synergies very well together defensively because between them they can handle both air and ground.
Hog rider is your isn’t con inside this deck. Use him to pressure your opponents or to kite their units away from your towers on defence. In double elixir pair him with prediction spells if you know what units your opponent has in cycle. Try to push with him placed either behind the Valkyrie (if you’ve used her defensively) or the ice spirit.
Rocket can help you win a match if you’re struggling to break through their defence. You can spell cycle I’m double elixir/sudden death if their towers are around 1200 HP. This card is also a good answer to the balloon too which is popular in this meta! If they play units close to their towers try to take advantage of the situation unless you’re at an elixir disadvantage.
Early game try to activate you king tower if possible to help aid your defence throughout the rest of the match! You can start out the game with goblins or ice spirit at the bridge or even a Valkyrie in the back. Viper doesn’t like to start out with the hog incase they’re running Tornado. Take all spell value you can and also try to make positive elixir trades and counter push after a light defence. Don’t allow the opponent to build up a huge push, so make sure you’re defending with a good offence!
In double elixir you can see from the video Happy Noob will play a lot more aggressive with his hog by playing him behind his Valkyrie at the bridge. Don’t be afraid to start cycling logs, they get tower damage and allow you to get back to your hog rider quicker. Check out the video to see some live ladder matches!
