The Goblin Barrel Deck #1

Clash Royale Goblin BarrelClash Royale FreezeClash Royale Hog RiderClash Royale Baby Dragon

Clash Royale Barbarian HutClash Royale Spear GoblinsClash Royale fireballClash Royale Minion Horde

In this deck, Goblin Barrel gets combined with Freeze Spell. This is one of my favorite combo and it’s pretty deadly If done properly. Obviously the main weakness of Goblin Barrel is that it can be easily countered by Arrows and Fireball. That’s why we have Minion Horde in this deck. The main use of Minion Horde in this deck is for bailing Arrows/Fireball out so you can use Goblin Barrel safely. Minion Horde is also extremely effective at dealing with tankers, Hog, Balloon and defensive buildings (which can target only ground units).

We are also combining Goblin Barrel with the Hog Rider and making it a very high offensive deck with deadly combos of Freeze, Hog Rider and Goblin Barrel. And year we can’t just play offensively. We need to also defend and get positive Elixir trades. Barbarian Hut is used to deal with P.E.K.K.A, Golem, Hog, Prince,… and other big pushes. Spear Goblins is definitely one of the most useful cards in game, which can be effectively used in almost every deck. By understanding how to lure troops properly, you can easily get Elixir advantage with these small green guys. Baby Dragon and Fireball are effectively used at dealing with swarms and taking weakened Tower.


Ash gave us a perfect battle at 2600+ trophies for example in the video below. You can also learn a lot of tricks inside!

The Goblin Barrel Deck #2

Clash Royale Goblin BarrelClash Royale FreezeClash Royale BalloonClash Royale Baby Dragon

Clash Royale elixir collectorClash Royale GoblinClash Royale fireballClash Royale Minion Horde

And this is our second Goblin Barrel deck with the help of Balloon and Elixir Collector. After the March 23 update, people have been using Balloon as lot as Balloon’s HP got increased by 5%.

Elixir Collector is definitely one of the hottest cards right now. It’s an extremely deadly card as it lasts for 70 seconds, which gives you 7 Elixir in total within its life. This card is very very helpful at late game as it helps you rush attacks easier. Sometimes, you can use this card on defense because of its very high HP. I think it’s the best card in this meta game. You can take a look at this guide to read all of my tips about using Elixir Collector as well as learn to avoid common mistakes while using Elixir Collector.

The way I use this base is pretty the same like the one above. You can see more details and strategies of this deck in the video below!

Okay thank you very much for reading guys! I hope you will like these Goblin Barrel decks and will get a lot of trophies with them. Currently I am testing them at 2000+ trophies and everything is great so far. Gonna up more videos for these decks as soon as possible guys!

  • Calvin Boediarjo

    The main problem is … i dont have goblin barrel xD

    • Will Potter

      LOL xD.
      I hope you can give it soon! Awesome card!

    • Swapnil

      Then u wont need it will you now

  • Mr.Randomly Random

    This deck is super amazing, but i have a few questions,
    What if the opponent simply uses goblins or spear goblins to take out your goblins?
    How do you know if your opponent has arrows or fireball when you drop your minion horde?
    When are you supposed to drop your goblin barrel?

    • Will Potter

      Hello mate,
      1. Most of the time I use Barrel only when I have Freeze.
      2. There is no way to know that but your opponent will use Fireball/Arrows after a few pushes for sure. Otherwise, If he saves Arrows/Fireball for your Barrel, just push with Hog or Minion Horde.
      3. When I have enough Elixir for Barrel + Freeze and my opponent doesn’t have enough Elixir to properly deal with my combo.

      • Mr.Randomly Random

        Thanx a lot for your help dude!

        • Will Potter

          You are very welcome my friend!

      • aleander clash

        once again awesome deck. Helped me to break my slump. Two questions: 1. I am in 1600 trophies. But my opponents are in arena 6 and I have to deal with mortar deck.Why? I do get chest from arena 6 if I win. 2. how do I counter if opponent has both arrow+zap/fireball. I drop my minion horde to lure his arrow but he uses zap/fireball to kill my barrel. Thanks for the share.

        • Will Potter

          Glad to hear that my friend!
          1. Yes you can get Arena 6 Chest after the battle.
          2. Nah I don’t think there are many players in Arena 5 having all those cards in just 1 deck . It is totally a bad idea. You don’t need to worry about this truly :D.

  • Kevster86

    Potter it’s tix if u remember me I posted a th5 and 9 walk through on the coc website, my friend is looking for hacks on this game do u think u could help?

  • Will Potter

    It depends on your situations mate. You may don’t place it behind your Tower in most cases :D.

  • Jon

    • WestPKMN

      I use Giant Skeleton on one side an Balloon on other, then I rage spell whichever one has more HP. Dominates Arena 4.

      • Jon

        I want rage aswell it’d be helpful in destroying aha

    • Will Potter

      Yea! That’s one of the best combos in this meta game!

  • Ethan

    hog + gob barrel + freeze… thats just playing dirty 😛

    • Will Potter

      Not really that dirty lol. Put this is an extremely annoying combo for sure!

    • Zhang Xu Cheng

      lol it can be countered btw. arrow the gob barrel and distract the hog with building

  • Wong zhi qin

    Hey I have around 3k gold and I want to buy epic cards.. can u tell me whether if i should upgrade my epic or unlock the old ones?
    i have
    -witch -baby dragon – prince -giant skeleton -balloon -xbow
    all of them are level one.. can u suggest me what to do?

    • Joseph P.

      If I am you I would be on the lookout for a freeze in the shop and buy it so you can do a balloon freeze deck which is overpower

    • Will Potter

      Sorry but I can’t suggest you what to buy. You should buy the cards you really want, which gives you the huge advantage for your best deck!
      Also, you can take a look at here:

  • WestPKMN

    I went from barely being able to get into Arena 5 to pushing toward 1600.

    Goblin Barrel
    Mini Pekka
    Spear goblins
    Minion Horde

    Bait out arrows/fireball with Minion Horde then Goblin/Freeze. If you don’t have Wizard, sub Valkyrie (I used Valk to push in original anyway).

    • Will Potter

      Thanks for the great share man!

    • Will Potter

      Thanks for sharing this mate xD

  • DrawingBeef08

    This gob barrel deck is op

    Spear gob

    Use deck defensively until given a good counter push oporyunity. Use the valk and knight to distract tower and throw gob barrel at corner to make them miss their zap/arrows. Can beat any deck meta or not.

    • Will Potter

      Thank you a lot for sharing this buddy!

    • Karuban
