Best Clash Royale Decks – Push to Arena 9 Without Legendary

Hello my friends, It’s Will here and today I am going to show you the best Clash Royale Decks which will help you push to Arena 9 with ease!

Needless to say, pushing with Legendary cards is quite easy, especially with Miner, but, getting them is not easy at all. That’s why today, I am going to compile a special list of the best Clash Royale decks which can help you push to Legendary Arena without using a single Legendary card. You may know some of them because they are pretty popular in Royale TV and YouTube.

best clash royale decks to push to legendary

Before posting , I borrowed a level 8 account from my friend and successfully pushed to Arena 9 by using these decks with it. But you also should keep in mind that some decks may require a high skill cap and card levels will be very important to push higher. Especially If you upgrade your cards to the very important breakpoints, you can easily get 200-300 more trophies with them.

Before starting, I will assume that you are using level 9 commons, level 6 Rares and level 3 Epics. Of course you can push higher with lower level cards but 9-6-3 is pretty standard. You can push to Legendary Arena with enough skill while using them. Okay guys, let’s take a look at the best Clash Royale Decks!

Best Clash Royale Decks That Get You to Legendary Arena


Standard Royal Giant deck

Clash Royale Royal GiantClash Royale BarbariansClash Royale MinionsClash Royale fireball
Clash Royale Spear GoblinsClash Royale ZapClash Royale CannonClash Royale elixir collector

Use the Elixir Collector go gain Elixir advantage and do sneak push with Royal Giant continuously. Play Minions and Spear Goblins behind to support him. Keep doing this until you take down the first Tower, then just simply place the Royal Down right at the middle of your opponent’s side to whittle the second one down. Normally, taking down the second one is much easier. You can defend with Barbarians, Minions, Fireball and Cannon of course. Use Fireball to counter your opponent’s moves. Zap is also very helpful at talking down Goblins, Skeletons and reset Inferno Tower’s damage.

Some players like using Fire Spirits, Valkyrie or Musketeer in stead of Elixir Collector. It’s up to you but personally I always try to put the Elixir Collector in my decks. Also, you can replace Cannon with either Wizard or Witch but due to the current game meta, it’s not a really good choice.

Chief Pat’s Royal Giant Deck

Clash Royale CannonClash Royale Goblin HutClash Royale ArrowsClash Royale fireball

Play defensively and earn Elixir advantage with the Elixir Collector. Try to place at least 1 Goblin Hut before using the Royal Giant, you will have loads of Spear Goblins supporting the Royal Giant after a while. This is a pretty nice deck because it doesn’t require much skill, also, you can easily play for a tie whenever you think you can’t win.

You can use Zap instead of Arrows, Tesla/Inferno Tower instead of Cannon,… There are a lot of variations of this deck for you.

Royal Giant + Hog Rider

Clash Royale Royal GiantClash Royale Hog RiderClash Royale Mini P.E.K.K.AClash Royale Cannon
Clash Royale MinionsClash Royale Spear GoblinsClash Royale ZapClash Royale fireball

Use it like the two above, but this time we have 2 building targeting troops are Hog Rider and Royal Giant. Use this to your advantage and keep sending Hog and Royal Giant simultaneously or separately, depending on the situations. This is a pretty versatile deck, you can easily defend and push. There is literally no bad starting hand.

Some players like using Elixir Collector instead of Cannon but protecting your Tower from Royal Giant and Hog Rider will be very hard. You can also replace Minions with Musketeer or Wizard.


Hog Rider Trifecta Deck

Clash Royale Hog RiderClash Royale ValkyrieClash Royale MusketeerClash Royale Cannon
Clash Royale elixir collectorClash Royale SkeletonClash Royale ZapClash Royale Poison

You can use Freeze instead of Poison and Arrows instead of Zap.

These days, this is definitely the most popular version of Poison decks. This deck doesn’t require a high skill cap, It is extremely easy to play. It just takes you a few battles to figure out all the basics. Use the Elixir Collector to gain Elixir advantage. Play defensively then counter push with the survived Valkyrie/Musketeer and use Poison to slow down enemy defending units as well as drain their HP. Use Cannon to defend and use Skeletons to distract and kill lots of troops such as Prince, Mini P.E.K.K.A, Giant Skeleton, P.E.K.K.A,… You will see that this deck is very easy to use. It also works very well against most popular strategies at this time.

You can also use Inferno instead of Cannon and Fire Spirits/Ice Spirits instead of Skeletons. You will really need the Elixir Pump in this deck because it uses up to 12 Elixir to push.

Hog Cycle Deck

Clash Royale Hog RiderClash Royale GoblinClash Royale ZapClash Royale Cannon
Clash Royale MinionsClash Royale Spear GoblinsClash Royale fireballClash Royale Mini P.E.K.K.A

Most Hog Rider Cycle Deck costs only 3.1 Elixir or less. Our goal is to constantly push with Hog Rider and prevent opponent from launching big pushes. Play agressively and force them to defend the whole match. With the very low avg. Elixir Cost, you can cycle back to your Hog very fast before your opponent has his defensive building or other Hog Rider counters ready. Whenever you see your opponent placing a high Elixir card down (Golem, P.E.K.K.A), push on the other lane to force your opponent to defend. If he doesn’t defend, you will have an easy Tower.

You can consider replacing Goblins with Fire Spirits. These guys are just super helpful, especially while working with Hog Rider!



Giant Balloon Deck

Clash Royale GiantClash Royale BalloonClash Royale BarbariansClash Royale elixir collector
Clash Royale SkeletonClash Royale ArrowsClash Royale MinionsClash Royale fireball

Or you can take a look at M4SON’s deck at here.

This is another super easy to use deck and I have seen loads of players pushing to Legendary Arena with this deck too. The only problem I face while using this deck is dealing with other air decks but If your opponent want to do the 3 crown race, you will usually win. Use the Elixir Collector to gain advantage and push when your opponent is on low Elixir. Try to figure out the best way to deal with the counter. If your opponent has the Inferno Tower, it’s better to play for a draw. Also, you should always play pre-Arrows to kill the defensive Minion Horde as soon as possible, otherwise they will wreak your Balloon badly.

You can use Wizard instead of Fireball, this works pretty well! Also, replacing Skeletons Ice Spirit or Fire Spirits is not bad at all, especially Fire Spirits can easily 1 hit Minion Horde.

Jason’s Giant and Hog Rider Deck

Clash Royale GiantClash Royale Hog RiderClash Royale elixir collectorClash Royale Barbarians
Clash Royale Minion HordeClash Royale Spear GoblinsClash Royale ArrowsClash Royale Archers

Use the Elixir Collector to gain Elixir advantage, play defensively with Minion Horde, Barbarians then launch a strong counter push with the survived troops by placing the Giant in front of your troops right before they reach the bridge. Let your Hog Rider jump over the river to take down defensive building and use Spear Goblins and Archers to support your Giant. If your opponent doesn’t attack first, place your Giant at the back and launch your push slowly. Once you have taken down the first Tower, drop your Giant in the middle of your opponent’s side to soak damage for your support and Hog Rider.

You can use Minions instead of Minion Horde for lower Elixir Cost. Arrows is a must at Arena 8 because you will usually face Princess!

Standard Giant Push Deck

Clash Royale GiantClash Royale PoisonClash Royale Mini P.E.K.K.AClash Royale Zap
Clash Royale MusketeerClash Royale Spear GoblinsClash Royale CannonClash Royale Minions

Simply launch a push with your Giant and support troops behind, then use Poison Spell on defensive troops and building. Use the Cannon to defend against Hog Rider and Royal Giant. Mini P.E.K.K.A can be effectively used on both offense and defense.

You can use Elixir Collector instead of Cannon but defending will be very hard. Some players like using Fireball instead of Poison, this would work If your Poison is low level. Consider replacing Minions with Fire Spirits for a stronger push with Mini P.E.K.K.A. There are loads of variations of this decks for you! I will update more about this in the future!

Giant 3 Musketeers Deck

Clash Royale GiantClash Royale Three MusketeersClash Royale elixir collectorClash Royale Knight
Clash Royale BarbariansClash Royale GoblinClash Royale MinionsClash Royale Arrows

This deck relies on gaining Elixir advantage with the Elixir Collector and play defensively first, then doing push with Giant and 2 Musketeers (place the Musketeers right in the middle and they will split up). Couple Knight with the lone Musketeer on the other lane. This is a high risk high reward deck, easy 3 crown win most of the time. You can replace Knight with Mini P.E.K.K.A.


Golem Poison Deck

Clash Royale GolemClash Royale elixir collectorClash Royale CannonClash Royale Goblin
Clash Royale MusketeerClash Royale ZapClash Royale PoisonClash Royale Mini P.E.K.K.A

Play defensively first and gain Elixir Advantage with the Elixir Collector. Don’t place your Golem down If you don’t have any Pump on the ground. Only send your Golem when you know your opponent’s counter (Ideally in the x2 Elixir time). Use the Poison Spell to support your Golem, prevent your opponent from using cheap troops and drain their HP. Support your Golem with Mini P.E.K.K.A, Musketeer,… Zap is a must in order to deal with the Inferno Tower.


P.E.K.K.A 3 Musketeers Deck

Clash Royale P.E.K.K.AClash Royale Three MusketeersClash Royale fireballClash Royale Zap
Clash Royale elixir collectorClash Royale BarbariansClash Royale GoblinClash Royale Spear Goblins

Build the Elixir Advantage with Elixir Collector then push push P.E.K.K,A + 3 Musketeers. Always place the P.E.K.K.A down behind your King’s Tower unless you are hurry to take down a Tower at the late game. If your opponent has Fireball, do split push by placing Musketeers at the middle and P.E.K.K.A to soak damage for 2 Musketeers. Drop Goblins and Spear Goblins on the other lane to support the lone Musketeer. You can replace Goblins with Valkyrie or Mini P.E.K.K.A. Although this is a nice deck and it can get you to Legendary Arena quickly, it requires  high level P.E.K.K.A to do so. If you don’t have level 4 P.E.K.K.A, you should give the other decks above a try.

My friends, don’t forget that card level and skills really matter If you want to push to Legendary Arena, especially when you are at ~2900 trophies. If your card levels are too low to use a deck, just don’t use it, skip to the other ones. You also need to play a lot before you can master a deck, Friendly Battle and Tourneys are the best choice for practicing.

Hopefully you have found these Best Clash Royale Decks helpful! If you have any question, don’t hesitate to comment my friends.
