GxtorShof is on my channel showing us this Mega Knight hog bait deck that he’s been using to rack up some wins. You have log bait with the princess, dart goblin and skarmy. Zap bait with the bats skarmy and spear goblins and you it also has the hog freeze, so this deck is a mixture of different archetypes however your main win condition will be the hog freeze. You can easily punish an opponent if they waste their small spell such as barb barrel, log or zap.
Mega knight has a huge counter push potential and I recommend usimg him defensively then using him to tank damage on a counter push. He is a good counter to thd hog rider and other bridge spam units because of his enter the arena ability.
You should always aim to get good value with your princess so make sure you protect her as much as possible and play her opposite lane to help aid your defence. She can also be a good opening play if you place her behind your king tower. She’s also a good support units especially against decks which have a lot of swarm units that your opponent relies on for defence.
Freeze doesn’t have to be used just to support the hog rider, it can be used to slow down the opponents pushes, freeze seige decks, or even allow your smaller units time to chip away at their tower if they’ve locked on. The freeze will take out bats too and potentially take out units with a small amount of health.
Early game it’s important to identify what their small spells are so you know when to apply presssure and punish the opponent if they waste their spells or you bait them out. Try to stack up some chip damage but be careful not to over commit offensively because you can be easily punished and lose the game.
Later game keep playing aggressively and try to chip away at both their towers if they’re still up. If you’re struggling to break through their defence you will need to start to build up larger pushes. You can also switch lanes and try to catch the opponent off guard, especially if they’ve just played one of their key defensive units in the other lane. Goodluck running this deck check out the video to see some live grand challenge game play of GxtorShot using this deck.
