Because Golem and Furnace are two quite underrated cards in Clash Royale, today I am going to introduce to you a very interesting deck which is based on these two. Hopefully you will see their potentials while using this deck!
Golem Furnace Deck
I have been testing this deck for a few hours and getting lots of impressive results against Royal Giant Decks, Hog Rider Decks, Sparky Decks and Giant Baloon Decks. As I talked about these cards lots of times before so today I am going to keep this as simple as possible. If you have any issue while using these cards, just comment and I will do my best to help you!
The best push of this deck consists of Golem, Furnace, Knight and Poison. Cannon, Goblins and Zap are used on defense most of the time. But of course you always can use Zap on offense and Poison on defense (especially against Giant Balloon).
I strongly recommend playing defensively first with this deck.
Elixir Collector is the best card you want to have in your starting hand to gain the Elixir advantage and force your opponent to attack first. Otherwise, playing either Furnace Goblins first would be nice.
You will want to place your Giant behind your King’s Tower, on the side you want to push and not before 1:10. Also, don’t push until you have at least 1 Furnace ready to protect your big push. If your opponent using his Miner to constantly destroy your Furnace, your Elixir Collector will be safe and this is totally great for any Golem deck.
Once your Golem reaches the bridge, place your Knight down right behind him and have your poison ready to deal with the defensive buildings and troops. While your Golem is soaking damage, you can quickly cycle through cards and have up to 3 Furnaces on the ground. Golem will group all opponent troops together and Furnaces + Poison can easily remove them all quickly.
This deck rocks in the x2 Elixir time. You can easily snowball your push with 2 Golem and tons of pressures. If your opponent ignores your push during this this and push on the other lane, it will be a 3 crown win for you! Because the Knight’s userate is pretty low right now, lots of players can’t imagine how much damage 2 Knights can do in a few seconds!
Excepting the Golem, all other cards in this deck can be effectively used on defense against the most popular strategies at the moment:
Royal Giant: Drop your Furnace or Cannon reactively once the Royal Giant is about to cross the river to defend. Personally I usually place the Furnace down 2 tiles in front of the King’s Tower to distract the Royal Giant. The Furnace has better HP than the Cannon, that’s why. You can drop the Cannon in front of the Furnace right after that to double the distraction and kill the Royal faster. Knight is also very great at killing the Royal Giant. Use Poison If your opponent’s push seems heavy, your push is still deadly without the Poison.
Giant Balloon: Have your Poison ready do deal with this push! Use your Cannon + Furnace to distract and lure them to the center. Use Knight to kill the Giant If needed. Zap is a must to keep the Balloon under Poison for 1 more second. Otherwise, place your Elixir Collector right in front of the King’s Tower as showed at here. After taking out the Cannon, Balloon will move to the nearby Elixir Collector, hit it as well as trigger your King’s Tower.
Hog Rider Trifecta (You can read more about this deck at here). Use your Cannon + Furnace to distract and use Poison when needed. You will want to save your Knight to deal with this combo. Use Knight to lure the Valkyrie then drop Goblins on the Musketeer!
Miner: Keep your Elixir Collector in front of the King’s Tower (top priority) and place the Furnace at the back. Your Knight can easily counter the Miner and the Fire Spirits from the Furnace will help you kill him quickly. Save your Poison to deal with the upcoming troops behind as most Miner decks use cheap spam troops to do the chip damage
