#1 Ladder Deck! 100% Free to Play!
Kick Ash posted 4 years ago (updated 4 years ago)

Today by popular request Smartlife is on my channel sharing this free to play ladder deck that he’s using to dominate right now! In my video we’re watching him play life on ladder! The ideal push with this deck is having your Royal Giant (RG) Down all GC witch your goblin gang or minions. Never play your minions and gang in the same lane early on in the game because it can give your opponent spell value and also leave you low on elixir for defence. If you’re opponent plays a heavy tank in the back then pressure the opposite lane witch he Royal Giant, as game goes on you can play the correct support units depending on what troops or buildings they have in cycle. Sometimes it’s ok to take some damage in order to gain an elixir advantage and build a stronger push with your royal giant during double elixir. Valkyrie and musketeer synergies very well together on defence and they also provide good counter push potential alongside your royal giant. Use your tombstone to kite units like hog rider, battle ram, giant and golem into the centre of the arena. You can use your musketeer or Valkyrie to help shut down their support troops.

Smartlife is happy to use this card defensively if it means you can’t keep your troops or towers alive for longer. It can be good to use against electro or inferno too especially in double elixir. Towards the end of double elixir and into over time you can begin to rocket cycle providing you have an elixir lead or are equal in elixir.


Valkyrie is incredibly strong right down her range buff helps her get that extra hit. She’s good of defence against graveyard decks and bait decks and can be useful at helping take out tanks and support troops.

Royal Giant

Royal Giant is your win condition, use him to pressure the opponent and also take advantage by playing him infront if your support units. If you’re struggling to break through their defence playing him in the back and building up a push will allow you to quickly cycle back to a second RG to play as soon as your first one dies.

Early Stage Gameplan

In single elixir you should aim to get a feel for what your opponent is playing and try to play reactively to what your opponent does. Remember to pressure opposite lane if they play a heavy tank and save your tombstone for defence. Musketeer can be played in the centre and her range will allow her to help defend then pressure opposite lane.

Late Stage Gameplan

Double elixir this deck will be a lot stronger especially against bridge spam and bait archetypes. You can pressure both lanes during double elixir with RG in one lane and he Valkyrie goblin gang down the other lane. Remember you can spell cycle, learn what damage your rocket does and also what damage both your spells do when paired together. Goodluck with this deck everyone!
