Today we have HANExHANE on the channel sharing this off meta combo deck that he’s having huge success with on ladder! What I love about this deck is that you have great defensive power with the goblin hut, dart goblin and the giant skeleton. They all provide you with a solid counter push opportunity and will always force a response from your opponent. For offensive pressure you have the royal giant and the skeleton barrel. The Royal giant can be used when you’re counter pushing, he can be played same lane or opposite lane depending on what your opponent is playing. The skeleton barrel is best used if your opponent has just used a small spell or you need to force them to split their elixir between two lanes, for example against golem or lava hound you shouldn’t allow them to build up a huge push. Good earthquake players will use their earthquake a lot throughout the match, even if they don’t have a building you can use it to slow troops to help support your pushes.
Giant skeleton is a great defensive unit that is capable of completely shutting down an entire push. If he reaches the opponents towers his death bomb will deal over 1000 damage. You can place Royal Giant behind this guy in double elixir to make it harder for your opponent to defend.
Use dart goblin to help defend and also support your pushes. Use his long range to your advantage by playing him out of spell range to your towers. Protect him as much as possible, this will ensure you get maximum value from this card and could potentially bait out a log from your opponents cycle.
Goblin hut is one off the strongest cards in the game right now, it can be used on defence to kite units into the centre of the arena while spawning spear goblins which will assist your princess towers on defence. The hut can be placed to apply opposite lane pressure, this is a great tactic if you know it’s going to be a long match and will most likely go to a two tower match.
You don’t want to be using your royal giant in single elixir, you should be defending and using your giant skeleton on defence while using dart goblin, skeleton barrel and goblin hut to chip away at the princess towers. You can use your bats or skarmy you bait their small spells. However pressuring with the skeleton barrel gives your death damage and also forces them to use their spells on defence rather than on offence!
Once you hit double elixir you can start to use your royal giant on offence. Keep up the pressure with the skeleton barrel and use your earthquake to help support your pushes. Giant skeleton should be used defensively. Goodluck with this deck everyone!
