This Rocket Cycling Deck is one of the most easy-to-use decks I have ever tried. This deck uses Rocket as the main damage dealer. You can easily cycle the deck and uses every single card to defend, take the elixir advantage then spend on the Rocket. I tested this deck yesterday with my alt account and successfully pushed to Arena 7 from Arena 6 with a winning streak!
This can be a potential win condition but it’s here to force your opponent off balance and play at your pace. If they drop a building close to their tower rocket it, if they drop a troop far back to prepare for a giant beatdown push rocket it, if they want to hide behind a bomb tower or whatever sim city they construct begin rocket cycling. The rocket forces your opponent to play differently than they normally would. If they can’t place their ranged support as far back as they normally do you just denied them -1 elixir every single push, hut players have to either learn how to position their huts better or lose and defensive players are forced to play offensively in response to your rocket cycling or lose. With an average elixir cost of 3.4 any defensive player is going to be hard pressed to beat you in a rocket race.
“Play reactively and gain an elixir advantage” is the mantra of CR. EC’s big value is banking elixir so you can wait longer for your opponent to put something down for you to counter. It’s your only building so if you notice your opponent is playing hog freeze start putting in mid, close to the tower they’re pressuring.
Highly effective against barbs and your typical spear goblin defense. If you know your opponent’s primary defense is going to be barbs & spear goblins cycle to double bomber with your push. If your opponent reveals goblin barrel try to keep a bomber in your hand, a quick reactive bomber is just as effective as arrows.
Your main source of tower damage. Musketeer & the other ranged units in this deck can minimize the damage a hog freeze can do while providing a killer tower push. If you know your opponent is packing a cannon for defense cycling in a musketeer duo will delete the cannon before it does much to delay your push. Much like with 3 Musketeers fireball is going to be a huge headache if you cycle them, so really your option vs a fireball player is going to be to stagger out your push so they won’t get as much value fireballing your musketeer + clump of ranged units.
Works together with their friends Musketeer and Spear gobs to hit hog from out of freeze range. Manages to survive arrows that they’re equal level to (never) and actually pumps out a surprising amount of damage if protected by a knight or musketeer. Helps shore up this deck’s weakness vs minion horde.
The final member of the ranged trio! Cycling in a second group of spear goblins offers your push protection vs. a minion horde, especially with this ranged troop composition. Great for pulling, great for cycling.
Your cheap tank. Drop him on people’s heads, watch him get moved CLOSER to towers when your push inevitably gets fireballed. Get surprised when you can cycle in another one just as your first gets killed by the tower. His main job is sitting on wizard heads and wandering aimlessly into towers while your holy trinity try to get hits in.
He pulls, he caps giant knees with stunning efficiency, backstabs wizards distracted by knights, facestabs pork on icy terrain and wears a crown as the reigning king of cycling.
99% of it was already stated above. To recap, gain an elixir advantage via ECs and reactive play then while you’re on the offense double up on whatever unit is best against your opponent’s deck. If their defense is too tough to crack rocket cycle. It’s very easy to over commit with this deck due to low elixir costs, DON’T DO IT. Remember every time you over commit you’re potentially force feeding yourself a fireball. Always remember that you can just put down your elixir collector after you gained an advantage instead of just trying to press offensively.
If they’re not packing a fireball and your deck gains an advantage (your horde is on their side of river and not dead) your ranged onslaught will tear through a tower like butter. Hope you can enjoy the desperate struggle and utter frustration playing this deck at A7! You can get there though, it’ll be fun. Getting mad is fun isn’t it? It is!
I hope you have enjoyed this guide. Hopefully you can take loads of trophies in game with it! Thanks for reading and good luck my friends~
