Clash Royale Arena 8 Decks

Best Clash Royale Arena 8 Decks in Season 3

Best Beatdown Deck: Anti-Arrow Exploitation

Clash Royale Minion HordeClash Royale Goblin BarrelClash Royale Giant SkeletonClash Royale elixir collector

  • Minion Horde
  • Goblin Barrel
  • Giant Skeleton
  • Pick 2 from Spear Goblins/Minions/Skeleton Army/Princess
  • Pick 1 Defensive Tower or Elixir Collector.

Only 6 cards? – Please scroll down and read the Filler Card section xD.

This is a linear Beatdown Deck which can break you over 1 test – your ability to counter swarms. This Arena 8 Beatdown deck may not seem threatening If you are using more than 3 AoE Spells or Troops. You will usually need Arrows to deal with any combo of this deck. If you are not prepared, you will feel helpless or maybe will quit the game after losing 1 Tower.

The ideal strategy of this deck is to play a Giant Skeleton behind the King’s Tower to invest Elixir for later. Once the Giant Skeleton crosses the bridge, send your great Arrows test! Use your Spear Goblins behind him and drop your Goblin Barrel onto the Tower. Your opponent is facing 2 terrible simultaneous challenges:

  1. Deal with the Goblins since his Tower is hitting the Giant Skeleton.
  2. Stop that moving Giant Bomb (protected by Spear Goblins) from reaching his Tower.

If your opponent plays Arrows, just mass-send your Minion Horde, Skeleton Army, Minions, Goblins,… or whatever you have.

This deck seems pretty flexible! In addition, I don’t think Freeze is great for this deck.

Best Control Deck: Three Musketeer!

Clash Royale Three MusketeersClash Royale elixir collector

  • Elixir Collector
  • Three Musketeers
  • Pick 1 Tanker (Giant, Giant Skeleton, PEKKA)
  • Pick 1 from Cannon/Tesla/Inferno
  • Pick 2 from Skeletons/Minions/Goblins/Spear Goblins

Only 6 cards? – Please scroll down and read the Filler Card section xD.


Three Musketeers has been being used a lot since the last update! Most control decks try to commit 2-3 cards to the win condition. But what about just 1 card? The Three Musketeers Deck emerged as an efficient deck that dedicates lots of slots to cheap efficient cards. While using this deck, although you can use Three Musketeers to deal with tankers, but most of the time, you want to play them behind your King’s Tower in order to split them up. With 1-2 Musketeer on each lane. With the Elixir Collector refilling your Elixir, you can easily control both sides and support the more advantageous side whenever you want. Along with the help of your defensive building and Elixir Collector, you can deal with any Golem push. This deck requires an immediate response and doesn’t cost much time to devastate a Tower.

Best Siege Deck – Spawner City

Clash Royale Barbarian HutClash Royale Goblin Hut

  • Barbarian Hut
  • Goblin Hut
  • Pick 1 from Cannon/Tesla/Inferno/Bomb Tower
  • Pick 1 from Giant/Hog Rider/Giant Skeleton
  • Pick 1 Ranged Troop from Wizard/Musketeer/Archers/Princess)
  • Pick 1 from Arrows, Fireball

Only 6 cards? – Please scroll down and read the Filler Card section xD.

What about Mortar decks? Mortar decks are very popular in this meta game but Balloon deck (another popular deck) can easily counter them. That allows Spawner Decks to thrive without having Mortars and Rockets.

The hardest part of this deck is putting the Barbarian Hut down without losing the Tower on the other side. Dual Prince decks can easily counter this deck so you will don’t want to give them an opening. You will want to place solid defenses down and a good selection of efficient troops on your hands before dropping Huts.

You will also need direct damage spells in order to deal with any ranged unit, which can kill your 2 Barbarians quickly (Musketeer, Witch, Wizard, Ice Wizard, Princess,…). Fireball is a great card for this deck, which is a catch-all to most of those problems. To read more about using Fireball effectively, please take a look at here!

Hot Filler Cards

Valkyrie is definitely one of the best filter cards right now. She works extremely well in most decks, has 360 degrees splash damage and a decent amount of HP. Valkyrie + Freeze is my favorite combo which answer almost every situation!

Ice Wizard: Another great choice for most decks! Low Elixir Cost + AoE + decent HP + Slow ability. Awesome!

Rocket is a card that can be built entirely around. Decks which have more than 2 defensive buildings can use Rocket + Fireball combo to grind up.

Okay guys thank you very much for reading this. Also, a big thanks to The Rum Ham for this great summary! I hope you can will find these Arena 8 decks helpful. You rock!

  • Ist AviX

    In my opinion, the best counter for the 3 musketeers is the fireball. So I prefer using barbs, cause people already kill them with the fireball.

    • Will Potter

      Barbarians cost 5 Elixir and they are not good for tanking damage. Also, they are melee troop. You will want defensive ranged troops!

    • jonah

      I find this often works well, too.

  • Ultimit☆Cuest

    Fix quick!: you said “only 6 cards scroll down to filter cards!”

    I think you meant filler. Fix probably don’t want people thinking things…

    • Will Potter

      xD Thank you buddy!

  • Yo Nik

  • lulu98

    • Will Potter

      I would love to use Giant Skeleton haha xD

  • Anthony Ligyat

    My deck, skeleton, spear goblin, inferno tower, bomber tower, zap, rocket, fireball, goblin barrel. Works well lolz. Got to 2200 trophies in 1 day from 1600.

    • ken

      Do you mean Giant Skeleton or just the 1 elixir skeleton?

      • Anthony Ligyat

        1 elixer skeleton so you can switch card quicker, and it’s a good defender for hog riders when they are attacking your towers. Right now have been pushing to 2400

  • Marcell

    Man what do I do when everyone I battle carry fireball and zap? They just destroy my musks

    • Will Potter

      If you face them most of the time, then you shouldn’t use this deck!
      Otherwise, split your Musketeers into 2 groups by placing them at the middle of your side and chose the better side to push!

  • Munzer A. Shakur

    watch me play with 3 musketeers

  • LoL lol Lol loL LOL!!!

    Now one of my deck, barbarian hut, goblin hut, hog Rider, inferno tower, musketeer, fire ball, spear goblins, Tesla, it works very well on arena 3, 4, and 5
