Today we have Rhyme on the channel who is an absolutist beat with the one of the most OG decks in the game, today he's sharing the best ways the best some of the hardest match ups while also sharing some more great tips! Tip 1: Be aggressive with your x-bow in single elixir, as soon as they play a troop that costs 3 or more elixir in the back then play the x-bow at the bridge and try to get an early tower lock. Tip 2: Use your fireball defensively to support your x-bow especially in single elixir. log can be used to knock back or reset units while also been ablt to take down swarm cards. Tip 3: Never EVER give your opponent lightening value until you know for sure they're not using lightening in their deck. This can be very important in double elixir especially if the opponent is using golem. Tip 4: Against beat down decks like golem you will need to use defensive x-bows in the opposite lane, as soon as their golem or tank dies then play an offensive at the bridge. Tip 5: In double elixir you can start spell cycling your opponent after a successful defensive sequence. You can use the log to help you cycle while also getting some chip damage, and take all spell value you can against their princess towers.
Use this guy as a glass tank to help keep your other units alive for as long as possible. It can be used against pekka and other units to kite them into the opposite lane for a positive elixir trade. The frost nova can kill the smaller units like bats, skeletons and spear goblins.
Tesla is a great support card for the x-bow, use it on defence with a high placement so you can then use it to help defend your x-bow placements at the bridge. Try to avoid giving your opponent spell value with this card.
You can start out the match with an x-bow to see how the opponent responds. However the most popular starting plays are splitting archers or cycling skeletons or ice spirit. Remember never give you opponent spell value and play aggressive x-bows in single elixir and punish your opponent for playing units behind their towers. Use your spells defensively and keep up the pressure to force your opponent to spend elixir defensively rather than offensively.
Double elixir allows you to cycle extremely fast when using this deck, you should now start using your spells more offensively and taking any spell value you can. Use defensive x-bows if required and ALWAYS keep applying pressure!! Good luck with this deck every one don't forget to watch the video to see todays guest dominate ladder using this deck.
