Viva La Sparky! My long time friend VULKan is on the channel today showing us this Mortar Bait Deck that he’s currently using. He’s currently inside the top 200 in the world using this trophy pushing deck. This deck is also very free to play friendly, upgrading your minions and dart goblin should be a high priority if you choose to run this deck. The basic uses of this deck is you have the spell bait element, bats, rascals, goblin gang, minions and dart goblin which will all bait out log, barbarian barrel or zap which means you can use your other units to support your pushes whether is protecting your mortar or supporting the miner. Lane strategy if fairly important to, if they cycle a troop behind their tower then apply opposite lane pressure to avoid them building up a large push. Also if they’re running graveyard or beat down you should try and push opposite lane at all times.
Miner is a good unit to away at their towers, always switch up his placement to make it harder for them to predict where he’s going to appear. He’s a good counter to the elixir collector especially if you use other units to apply pressure at the same time. He can also be used to snipe units like princess, dart goblin, musketeers etc.
Dart goblin has long range so he can be played close to the middle to help defend the opposite lane then you can use him with the miner to pressure the opposite lane. Playing him behind your king tower is a good counter to graveyard too especially with all the freeze in the meta.
The best opening play with this deck is Mortar or a miner. You need to keep up the pressure with this deck and switch lanes at the right time to avoid your opponent building up a huge push that you can’t defend. Try and make positive elixir trades and keep track of the key units in your opponents cycle.
Later game you still need to play aggressively, keep cycling the miner and trying to ge the mortar lock. If you’ve taken a tower then push opposite lane. Mortars can be used defensively especially against hogs and best down decks, if you cycle back in time your first mortar can protect your aggressive mortar. Goodluck running this deck check out my video to pick up some more grest tips from VULKan.
