With the recent buff to the elite barbarians, they have become a viable defensive option and have a solid place in control cycle decks. This deck here also provides you the ability to quickly defend and create a high power counterpush with the elite barbarians or the hog as tanks for the archers, skarmy or princess. It also gives you low cost spells that allow you to defend against swarm units.
The princess will allow you to chip away at spawn, swarm units, and slow moving units. In late game having multiple princess can be key in the late game for tower damage or massive raining arrows of destruction.fire
The elite barbarians are used defensively in the deck to breakdown tanks and charging units. With the attack speed they can quickly defend and spark a high power counter push
The Hog serves as your main win condition and will lead your offense

Same strategy applies. Enjoy cycling e barbs frequently !!
