Today I’m joined by Rubén who is sharing his top 4 decks in clash Royale right now! The deck I’m sharing here is the 2.9 balloon cycle deck. This is second match of the video starting at 6:00 in the video. Balloon cycle decks are fairly high skill, they require you to have a good defence through a strong offence. Pressuring with the miner and balloon throughout he match will force your opponent to spend elixir defensively. When you do have to defend you will mainly rely on your bomb tower and musketeer, use you cycle units to help snipe and also support your other units. You should be able to easily out cycle your opponent in double elixir.
Miner is a great unit to use as a mini tank for your balloon, however he can also be cycled on the opponents tower to help get some, early chip damage or even tank for the musketeer. You might need to use snowball to help keep him alive against bats or skeletons. In single elixir against bait archetypes you might need to use this guy against the princess to prevent the opponent stacking them up.
Balloon is your main win condition and even if you don’t get it to the tower it’s death damage can still deal more damage than a fireball or poison. Try to pressure with the balloon when you know your opponent doesn’t have many air counters in cycle. Have snowball ready to protect it from bats or minions while having a unit like ice golem or miner tanking tower damage.
For only one elixir these guys can be used to help make positive elixir trades on defence which you can then cash in on when your counter push. They can be used to tank three hits from a pekka or a prince. You can also place these guys to surround units like sparky, executioner wizard etc. Use them to snipe support cards like musketeer.
Early game if your opponent plays a couple of air targeting units you can pressure opposite lane with the balloon. Always save your musketeer and bomb tower to help defend. For starting plays you can use the miner in the safe spot. Try to go into double elixir with the damage advantage.
Once you’re in double elixir you should still keep up the offensive pressure and keep switching lanes if you need to. Try to stack up musketeers and keep playing the bomb tower to help defend your towers. Goodluck with this deck everyone!
