Today we have SirTag on the channel sharing free to play cycle deck that only costs 2.9 elixir and it has 2 of the to play 3 cards in the entire game! You’re main win condition is the royal hogs, try to bait out their counters before pressuring, you might need to split lane push if they have units like Valkyrie or dark prince. You have the goblin cage to kite their units into the centre of the arena, you can then play musketeer in front of the king tower to help shut down their push. You have the poison and bats to help defend against graveyard decks, remember graveyard players rely on the counter push so you may need to switch lanes through out the match. Lava clone decks are easy to handle with this deck as you can see from the snowball and poison. Try to get value from all your units, even the two one elixir cards in this deck. The skeletons can be used to surround units amen paired with the ice spirit to take out units like musketeer. The skeletons can also be played in the centre of the arena to kite air units like mega minion away from your tower. Against decks with a lot of counters I recommend trying to play more aggressive and focus on trying to force them to play defensively, you should also split lane push! If the opponent has bridge spam try to keep your one elixir units in cycle to catch the bandit or freeze the battle ram.

Musketeer should be protected even if she only has one hp. She will be your main air defence so if the opponent has a lava hound deck try to stack up musketeers.

Goblin Cage

This card offers a lot of value for only four elixir. The goblin brawler is very tanky and provides some good counter push potential where the tombstone wouldn’t.

Royal Hogs

Majority of the time you’ll be playing these guys same lane unless your opponent has multiple counters in their deck. They’re also incredibly useful for kiting units away from your towers like the pekka, Valkyrie etc. You can also split them if you need to protect your musketeer.

Early Stage Gameplan

Early game you should assess what deck your opponent is playing and what counters they have to your Royal Hogs. A good starting play is the ice spirit because it’s often ignored and will get around 100 damage. Against heavy decks try to aim to go into double elixir with a tower damage lead.

Late Stage Gameplan

Double elixir you’ll be able to cycle through your cards very quickly and often out cycle their defensive troops. Try to build up musketeers, it’s ok to play her behind your towers because if you bait out a fireball you can punish with the royal hogs.
