Royal Giant Skeleton F2P Deck for Arena 7+

Hey guys, Leonex here with a new and unique deck. So the other day my friend trolled around with a Giant trifecta deck (Giant, Royal Giant, and Giant Skeleton) and i thought that it might actually work with a bit of modification. Shout out to Stealth for giving me this idea!

This deck might seem stupid at first but it can actually work with a bit of practice. I’ve tried this deck out on classic challenge (12-1) and i was surprised how well it did for such a stupid looking deck. Of course i had to practice with some friends first before i tried it on classic challenge. So anyways, let’s get on to the deck now.

Royal Giant Skeleton F2P Deck

Deck Breakdown:

Giant Skeleton and Royal Giant: These 2 cards actually make a great combo. With the Giant Skeleton in the front and Royal Giant behind it, your opponent has to pick who to deal with. If he decides to take out the Giant Skeleton first, then your Royal Giant will deal a lot of damage to the tower AND the Giant Skeleton will blow up his troops. If he decides to deal with the Royal Giant first, then the Giant Skeleton will have a chance to reach the tower and deal massive damage when it blows up. Additionally, the Giant skeleton’s death damage can also destroy the hard counter to all beatdown decks, the Inferno Tower.
Note: This a counter-push strategy. Do NOT attempt to throw in both Giants right off the bat.

Tornado: This new card would match perfectly with the Giant skeleton. Right before your Giant skeleton dies, play the tornado and pull as many troops as you can to the bomb as sometimes some cards can walk/run fast enough out of the bomb’s radius. Additionally, the tornado is also a decent general to deal with hordes to stall pushes. You can also pull a miner to your king tower with this, making it attack the king tower.

Ice Wizard: A cheap and versatile card. Great for defense as it has slow effect and can act as a support for pushes as well. It can also slow down troops so that it doesn’t escape the Giant skeleton’s bomb radius. A good starting card to play as well.
Alt: Ice Golem – Psudeo tank, distraction, and also has slow effect when it dies.

Ice Spirit: A versatile and great cycle card to get to the cards you need for only 1 Elixir. It can also freeze troops long enough for the Giant skeleton’s bomb to explode and prevent them from escaping the radius.

Mega Minion: High DPS card for only 3 Elixir, great for defense and counter pushing. You can use him to help take out glass cannons during pushes, like Minions Musketeers, or other Mega Minions. Take a look at this in-depth guide to read more about how to use the Mega Minion properly.
Alt: Minions – to avoid Lightning as it’s very common right now

Tombstone: Great distraction and defensive card. Especially great against sparkies. If left alone, it can gather a decent amount of skeletons during pushes with the 2 Giants tanking them. It can also be a good starting card to play as it forces your opponent to start first unless he’s willing to waste 3 Elixirs. Recently very common due to beatdown decks being very common as well.
More: Why we should use Tombstone

Zap/Log/Fireball: These 3 are what i think can be the best spells for this deck but really, it’s up to you. The Zap can reset Inferno Towers so that your Giant skeleton can get there. Log pushes troops to the Giant skeleton’s bomb. The Fireball deals with glass cannons. The Log and Zap is more of a cheap and versatile spell while the Fireball is the one to take out damage dealers.
Alt: Lightning – a bit too expensive but can still work

General Gameplan

You’d want to start the game with a cheap card like the ice wiz or tombstone and force your opponent to push first so that you can defend and launch a counter push. The Giant skeleton can be a great defensive card as well as it can distract enemies long enough for the tower to kill them and if not, then it’ll explode when it dies.

If you manged to defend while keeping your Giant skeleton and other cards alive, thats when you should start the counter push with the Royal Giant. as this push is very expensive, try your best to only counter push when you’ve gotten a big positive Elixir trade.

When pushing, unless you need to get the Giant skeleton to the tower, don’t worry too much about protecting your Giant skeleton as you actually want it to die, just prepare your tornado or Zap/log to pull in troops to the explosion.

This deck works really well with the current meta as you can destroy big pushes with the Giant skeleton’s death damage. With the addition to some other cards that you managed to keep alive, you can also start off the counter push without the Giant skeleton.

Notable Counters:

  • Lightning: The Lightning can take out both the ice wiz and Mega Minion, which is why i suggested Minions as an alternative. To avoid this, try your best to deploy your Giant skeleton (or Ice Golem if you don’t have ice wiz) to act as a Lightning rod and prevent your Mega Minion from dying.
  • Inferno Towers: I know i said the Giant skeleton can counter this counter, but it still requires timing and precision, which requires practice as it may not be easy at first.

That pretty much finishes this guide. Good luck with this deck and do share this deck with your friends if you find this to be fun to play. I personally find this deck very fun to play.

  • Zigge

    This deck says ”F2P” when there’s an Ice Wizard here. I’m like: WHAT??!!

    • Gamewarrior

      true, but you can still can get ice wizard if ur F2P, though that’s not the point

      • Zigge

        F2P means Legendary free when it comes to decks. My best friend has a lvl 2 Ice Wizard, even though he’s bought a special offer, 4/5 out his Legendaries are F2P including both Ice Wizards.

        • Gamewarrior

          I know

        • Colin in the Wolin

          I’m f2p and i have got 3 princesses, 2 sparkies, 1 ice wizard and 1 lava hound, the tornado the day after it came out and my king is 10

          • Zigge

            Nice I’ve got a Miner, two Sparky, two The Log, a Princess, an Ice Wizard, a Lumberjack and a Graveyard. I’m F2P

          • Firegod

            Cool! I have Level 5 Sparky, Ice Wiz, Lumberjack, Inferno Dragon, Log, Graveyard, Lava Hound, Princess, Miner, Electro Wizard, and my king is level 13 and i’m f2p!

    • Dennis

          • Aaron Kaz

            Miner is so good!!!! You just probably don’t know how to use it!

          • Felix Ma

            Jusst a bit tacky.

      • Zigge

  • Phil the Deadly

  • DaSlime

    it says arena 7+ but ice spirit is at arena 8 😛

  • Bokosuka

    You say it’s for arena 7 and up, well let me break it to you, in arena 7, you can’t get the ice spirit. BIG SHOCKER! So let me make these obsolete, that this is false advertising.

    • Delta Taka

      Yeah but no offense, arena 8 is way too easy, and arena 7 is a joke

      • Mythicalxshadow

        Well even Arena 9 is way too easy as well

        • Delta Taka

          Lol not at 4000

          • Mythicalxshadow

            I am at 4K+ haha. I mean those who consider a9 to just be “3000+” it’s a joke. Made it there as a lvl 7

          • Delta Taka

            ah, that’s pretty impressive. I made it there as a Level 8 during the may update with 8/5.5/2/1

      • Felix Ma

        NOT A JOKE IM STUCK DOWN THERE AND A COUPLE OF MY FRIENDS WHO STARTED CR BECAUSE I RECCOMMENDED THEM TO HAVE ALREADY GOT TO 8 AND IM STILL IN GODDAMN ARENA 7

  • Ryan Wong

    Why is this a F2P deck even though it contains a legendary? Yeah I know there’s a replacement, but really, just about every legendary is replaceable, so why isn’t every deck F2P?

    • logan

      try replacing miner i dare you

      • Ryan Wong

        knight or goblin barrel. it’s not perfect, but neither is replacing ice wizard with ice golem!

        • fatbu

          i replaced ice wiz with bomber

          • Felix Ma

            works

      • Felix Ma

        Goblin Barrel, Guards, Mini Pekka, Lumberjack, Knight, Valkyrie, Just about every 2-4 elixir mini tank you’ve got.

      • Joshua Tellez

        Already have the miner.

    • Will Potter

      My bad :). I shouldn’t name it F2P haha

  • Ethan

    What a legend! Can I have your autograph?

    • Very Unlucky

      can I too have your autograph?

  • Mythicalxshadow

    I’m 100% F2P King lvl 11 and have lvl 2 princess 2/4 to level 3, miner lvl 1 ice wiz lvl 1 sparky lvl 2 lava hound lvl 1. All from the various chests I’ve opened, haven’t bought any legends in shop at all. So yeah I would say it’s pretty F2P

  • fatbu

    can anyone help me?

    i am on a massive losing streak (from 2800 to 2400 and still going down) and I have tried everything. Taking breaks, changing decks, EVERYTHING. and the losing streak is still going. what should i do now

    • Felix Ma

      How long do you take a break for

      • fatbu

        varies from 5 minutes to 1+ hours
