Cards Guides
Hog Rider

The Hog is your win condition and should either be played behind the knight or in front of the musketeer when pushing. This allows you to either charge the tower with the knight as a meatshield or tank for the musketeer so she can do great damage against the tower.

Musketeer

The musketeer will be your main air defense and will play a key role in attacking behind the hog or knight and additionally proving support against units.

Knight

The knight will be your tank in this deck and will be your defense against charging units like the bandit and e barbs and will help break down tanks.

Early Stage Gameplan
X1

Defending and creating elixir tradeoffs is very key when using this deck. You don't have the pressure of letting your elixir count build up because you can constantly cycle units to punish misplays by your opponent or create scenarios where you can defend and still push on a different lane.

Late Stage Gameplan
X2

In 2x elixir time you will be able to cycle units at an incredible pace allowing you to be able to defend and quickly start a counter push with the knight hog or knight musketeer or hog musketeer. The cannon, fireball will help you tremendously in defending as well.
