Revamped P.E.K.K.A Three Musketeers Deck by M4SON

What is up guys! M4SON here again and back with a revamped Three Musketeer + P.E.K.K.A deck. I saw this one being used in some random tournaments and I just had to review it! So props to whoever discovered it! This deck is a great counter to the popular Giant Bowler that is seen a lot on ladder and in tournaments. Be sure to checkout the video for prime examples against Giant Bowler, Payfecta, etc. Lets get started and hop into the deck list!

Revamped P.E.K.K.A Three Musketeers Deck

Ice Spirit: Starting off with one of the most versatile card in the game, the Ice Spirit is great on defense and offense. Use it to defend against pretty much any push, against big tanks or even swarmy troops. You can also use this card to cycle your deck to get your Elixir Pumps or send it on offense with your Musketeers. If you place your Elixir Pumps in the middle protect it with a single Ice Spirit for a huge elixir positive trade. For 1 elixir you get incredible value from this card.

Zap: Typical utility spell that gives you instant versatility. Much like the Ice Spirit it can be used as offense or defense. Defend against pesky Minions, Goblins, and Spears or use it offensively to reset Inferno Towers or to protect your Musketeers. Zap away the cheap troops used to distract your P.E.K.K.A as well as resetting Sparky!

Minions: This card has great synergy with both the Miner and P.E.K.K.A. Do a standard Miner + Minions push to apply pressure or backup the Three Musketeer split push with these high DPS  flying units. Works great against Bowlers, as well as any groud troops such as Mini P.E.K.K.A, Valkyrie, Lumberjack, etc

Elixir Collector: Standard collector needed for a high elixir cost deck. Figure out what deck your opponent is playing and place collectors properly. I generally like placing it in front of my King Tower at the start, so I can protect it with either Ice Spirit or Guards. If I know my opponent doesn’t have Miner then I will start placing them behind my Arena Towers. Protect your pumps at ALL costs!


Three Musketeers: The star(s) of the deck! These three lovely ladies are very popular atm, offering insane split pushing potential. Depending on the situation split them either behind or in front of your King Tower. I personally will always split them unless my opponent wastes their Fireball or Poison my Elixir Pumps, but even then I prefer to split them to apply dual lane pressure. Always make sure they are protected by P.E.K.K.A, Guards, Miner, or even a little Ice Spirit.

Guards: Great card for stopping single target heavy hitters such as Prince, Musketeer, Lumberjack, Mini P.E.K.K.A, etc. Use these guys to protect your Elixir Pumps. When you can also drop them in front of your Musketeers to protect them. Situationally can send in with a Miner + Ice Spirit for insane damage.

P.E.K.K.A: The big tank of the group! Be careful when playing her, at 7 Elixir and slow walking speed it gives your opponent time to set up a fast attack. Great for counter the popular Giant, and Bowlers (since it doesn’t get knocked back). Generally place it behind your king tower so you can build up your push. Situationally you will want to place it in front of your Arena Towers if you need her to help you defend sooner.
Miner: Great card for helping your Musketeers tank the enemies towers. Equally good at taking out Elixir Pumps too. Early game if you don’t want to reveal your Muskies or P.E.K.K.A, send mini attack with Miner + Minions + Ice Spirit, or Miner + Guards + Ice Spirit.

General Game Plan:

Depending on your starting hand, generally you want to get your Elixir Collectors out and running. Place them in front of your King Tower to start with and protect with either Ice Spirits or Guards if they have a Miner. Once you figure out what kind of deck they are running adjust your collector placement accordingly.

Next up, you can send mini attack waves using your Miner + Minions + Ice Spirit or Miner + Guards + Ice Spirit. Once you have your Elixir Collectors going you can drop P.E.K.K.A in the back and start building up the push. If you have at least 1 Elixir Collector down, by the time P.E.K.K.A reaches the front of your arena tower you can split the Three Musketeers. Always split it so 1 will go behind the P.E.K.K.A while 2 go into the other lane. While all this is happening send the Miner in to tank for the 2 Musketeers. Additionally, use your Ice Spirits + Minions + Guards + Zap, to support whatever lane suites it best.

The split push is very strong because the opponent will need to act fast and correctly to properly defend against the push. With the cheap support cards you can instantly offer whichever lane added pressure for only 1-3 elixir. Generally I find many players defend against the P.E.K.K.A side, and get sidetracked and forget about the Miner + 2 Musketeer side. That’s really it for the split push.

During late game if you forgot to keep your Elixir Collector up, you still can win with your Miner + Minions / Guards, if you need that extra little bit of damage. The last note I shall leave you guys with is placement is very key to this deck, many experienced players will not always let you setup this crazy push, so you must learn all the best places to split the Three Musketeers, as well as properly placing your P.E.K.K.A.

  • Micah Terpstra

    Fun deck. It takes some patience but you can build some powerhouse pushes.

    • Will Potter

      Thank you very much Micah 😀

      • Slumberjack

        Hey Will….I have been using this deck to breeze past arena 7 but wonder if it needs edits to push past 2300+ trophies..I am a f2p with 2311 trophies –

        zap(9); gobs (9); ice wiz(1); fireball(6); pump(6); witch (3); royal giant (9); PEKKA (3)…I also have the princess (1)….thx mate!!

  • KekTheTurtle


  • Boaz Yang

    Are there any replacements for miner?

    • WestPKMN

      Mini PEKKA

    • Ishmam

      Knight is good with 3 musks, cheaper & slightly tankier than mini pekka

    • Delusionist

      Mini pekka, by the time double elixirs, u are able to place a mini pekka in the middle of 3 musketeers. This is to prevent enemy valkyrie to kill ur 3 musketeer.

      Losing 9 elixir is a pain in the butt mate!

    • Will Potter

      You can try either Mini P.E.K.K.A or Lumberjack. But, Miner is the key here!

  • Anon

    Miner replacements? I want him but I don’t have him

    • kwugfighter

      Knight or gob barrel, maybe? Knight is pretty much like the miner (tanky-wise and damage-wise), and with the gob barrel, you can place it anywhere.

    • Will Potter

      Mini P.E.K.K.A or Lumberjack 😀
      Knight would be nice too!

  • Aditya m

    WHAT can I replace for guards and ice spirits. I have the miner, so no problem with him.

    • Ishmam

      Guards = Dark Prince or knight

      Ice Spirit = goblins or skeletons (helps u take out tanks a bit faster, doesn’t matter too much if they zap) but fire spirits would be ok

    • Will Potter

      Guards and Ice Spirit fit this deck very well buddy. Why do you want to not use them?

      • Aditya m

        Hi will . My guards are just level 1 and I haven’t still reached thr frozen peak. I am at around 2140 trophies

        • Will Potter

          Guards level 1 in Arena 7 is totally okay for me xD

  • Yang Pu

    Hey guys
    I just want to claim that although this deck is becoming hot recently but it is origin from my friend Hzq8382785(Clan name: 暴躁世界).
    He used this deck and won 2 250k tournaments continuously on September 10th and 11th, the tourneys name are Hkesports week 2 and 50kings mid-autumn tourney.

    Additionally, here is the record live video on Youtube for the Hkesports tourney.


    • kwugfighter

      To be honest, even though he could’ve made this deck, there’s an extremely high chance that someone else in the entire world had the same idea for that deck. Congrats to your friend though!

      • Yang Pu

        You got the point but I saw him played this deck at least two weeks ago and slowly make it to the form nowadays.
        Besides, after he won the tourneys heaps of CR famous players copied this deck during their live channel such as douyu or huya etc..

        • 210577

          In that case, I could claim that the Hog Trifecta deck of this site was made by 도티, the Korean player who made it within the world top 2 twice in a row (as far as I know). Yet someone else could still come up with that deck without plagiarising him, too. After all, it’s a powerful deck. Tell your friend thanks for making such a good deck, but someone else could just have easily invented it 100% from scratch, too.

  • Nirjhar Deb

    Hi everybody! I wonder whether this deck is good or not. FYI, I am in Arena 6.

    Deck: Prince, Mini-Pekka, Fire Spirits, Valkyrie, Balloon, Minion Horde, Giant Skeleton, and Baby Dragon

    Please help me out!!!

    • kwugfighter

      There’s no defence (although it isn’t too big of a deal), and it’s too expensive. Maybe switch out the horde for 3 elixir minions, and maybe probably switch out the baby dragon for a musket because baby dragons can be countered too easily. Also maybe switch out the giant skele for a giant. Then, it can be a Giant Balloon Counter Push deck, and it would be cheaper.

      • Reshma Renu

        But giant skel is not expected to show up in arena 6 therefore it becomes OP there

    • Terry Bert

      No spell, No defence, Barely even a win condition, I have a lvl 6 clone in arena 7 maybe you want to use my deck

    • Reshma Renu

      Add in zap or fireball in place of a replaceable troop

    • Will Potter

      I don’t recommend using this deck If you are in Arena 6 :D.

  • Frisky

    Hey Guys come check out my new clan. We can give you tips to push to arena 7 and beyond. Also we will do Tourneys twice a month for 60 cards but you must be a member for 2 weeks or more!

    • Ethan

      Haha I dropped in to say hi and got kicked xD. But hey, your clan seems pretty active so keep it up 🙂

      • Frisky

        Sorry Ethan one of our Co’s was getting nervous because we were about to do a tourney and didn’t want password thrives. But thanks for your honesty of not staying. Glad to say we have hit 12K clan trophs now. If you ever need a clan you know where to come

      • Will Potter

        Why did you get kicked mate?

        • Ethan

          They where about to give a passcode out and didn’t want me just joining to steal the tourney passcode. But Im back in now so its all good 🙂

    • Will Potter

      Good luck with your new Clan mate!

  • Sun Downer

    Was wondering when this deck would get some attention. been playing it for the past couple of days and climbed from 2989-3315 and slaughtering tournaments with it. this deck at tourney standard is insane.

    • Will Potter

      Totally agree with you. Got #1 in a pretty big Tournament with this deck xD

  • CaptainSingh

    I am wondering: what deck did some of you guys use to get to arena 9. Im stuck in arena 8 with a highest of 2405 using a poop trifecta deck

    • Reshma Renu

      Mostly people us trifecta decks to get to arena 7 then use a Royal Gia deck to get to arena 8-9 and if you have a legendary look around for decks around those legendaries.

    • Will Potter

      Trifecta and Giant Poison are the most easy-to-use decks at the moment :D.

  • Chained Chaos

    I occasionally sacrifice a tower to gain an elixir advantage and then launch a massive push.Works pretty well

    • Arrow

      Sometimes I do that, but if the opponent has a really good push going then….

      • Chained Chaos

        By “sacrifice a tower” I meant when I do it when know I can recover from that loss on my push.

    • Hamish

      I also do the same.

  • Jai Price

    I’m looking for a clan that does tournaments. That interacts with members and that donates. My name is Jaiakai I’m in clan called Fightin Cocs is you want to check my profile first. I want be in Tournaments!!!!! Lvl8 arena 7 around 2000 trophies. I play constantly!!!!!

  • Reshma Renu

    I am a lvl 4 in arena 5 with lvl 4-5 commons lvl 2-3 rares and uses only on epic that is the witch.
    Should I submit my deck?
    All possitive feedback is appreciated.

    • Will Potter

      Just do it man! I will post it If it’s good enough :).

      • aravin

        Hi I have a deck that I created myself. It is quite good as I pushed to arena 8 with it. Pls don’t think that I have copied the Pekka Double Prince because I have being using this same gameplay since arena 4 and have just rotated the cards in and out. Thks. Let me know if you are interested.

  • aravin

    what can I use to replace the miner

  • Koby

    which would be a better replacement for miner mini pekka or knight

    • Will Potter

      Mini P.E.K.K.A I think…

    • XAkuTenshi

      Try goblin barrel

  • KungFuPanda

    M4son, thanks so much for your guide and videos! I am a F2P player and kept bouncing from 2900-3010 (using bowler giant poison) until this deck came into my life 🙂

    I am now at my highest trophies 3348 and clearly playing against people with way higher level cards. Please keep up with your videos as you keep it real!


    • Will Potter

      I am so glad to hear this. Hopefully M4SON will read your comment soon! Congrats!

  • UndeadClasher

    yo m4son you think i should which the three muskteer for a sparky pls repley

  • Antony Au

    which cards sould i use to replace the miner and ice sprits because i dont have them 🙁
    Are fire sprits and mini pekka ok?

  • Ashwin Umaselvan

    Would it be smart to switch minions with ice wizard or would you stick with minions?

    • Will Potter

      You can try to do that buddy. Good luck!

  • ReinaOkami

  • Mark Pearson

    people who want to use this deck without miner and ice spirit I run the same deck in legendary arena but use mini pekka valk and wizard and it works the same I pushed to 3000 plus with no legendarys , it ends up being a 4.9 deck but pump makes it affordable
