Royal Sparky Deck

Hello guys I am OddsomeOddy and this is going to be a guide about my Royal Giant + Sparky Deck. Using this deck I pushed from 2600 to 3150 trophies and now sitting consistantly in Legendary Arena. It contains 2 Legendaries (Sparky and Ice Wizard) but you can easily replace the Ice Wizard.

Royal Sparky Deck

Royal Sparky Deck

This deck is a pretty balanced combination of offense and defense. You can counter most decks with it quite efficiently. The main damage dealers of this deck are Sparky and Royal Giang and when executed correctly it can be totally overwhelming your opponent. First I’m going to explain the main purpose of every card in this deck!

Royal Giant: Really strong troop in the current meta, great on offense and defense in emergency situations. Main damage dealer in this deck and should be protected at any costs. I usually place him behind my crown towers to make a strong push.

Sparky: Her purpose is to protect the Royal Giant from treats on the ground but can also take a hit at the tower when making a good push and the opponent makes something wrong. Normally placed behind the Giant very late to surprise the opponent. Also has a great use for defense against tanks such as P.E.K.K.A or Golem. I often wait until Double Elixir till using her, so she’s not always necessary when pushing.

Ice Wizard (can be replaced with Musk or Valkyrie): The Ice Wizard takes a huge role in this deck, but can be replaced by the troops said above. Amazing skills in stopping big pushes and also on offense. With an elixir cost of only 3 I like to combine him with Sparky behind the Royal Giant before double elixir. He protects you from air troops such as minions. Also a great help in taking out Royal Giant and Hogs.

Wizard: Amazing when combined with Ice Wizard. Pre Double Elixir I often use him on defense to prevent swarm pushes, air attacks and Hog Riders etc. In double elixir I often use him instead of Ice Wiz when making a push but is very great together as well when you have spare elixir.


Mini P.E.K.K.A: Amazing card in current meta and the main defensive troop against bulky units such as Hog, Valkyrie, RG, Golem etc. Eventually used with Royal Giant push when opponents uses bulky troops for defending against your push.

Skeletons: Amazing value and lethal card against almost everything. I use them to slow down Hogs and kill him with Pekka then, distracting Princes, other Mini P.E.K.K.As, Musketeers, incoming miners, Epic P.E.K.K.A. AND VERY IMPORTANT: When your opponent has Inferno Tower, place them in front of your RG and it’s a fantastic counter against Inferno. Just such a great card.

Fireball: Fantastic when paired with Zap. Can take out Barbarians (when also Zapping them. It’s worth the elixir because your Giant survives a lot longer and can take many more hits onto your opponents tower), 3 Musketeers etc. Make sure you don’t waste this card as it can decide about win or lose in many situations.

Zap: Combined with Fireball it takes out high level Wizards, Musks, Ice Wizards. Used on defense against Hog combined with Mini P.E.K.K.A to kill him quickly, Minions, many small troops and resetting Inferno Towers to let them lock onto your Skeletons. This card is a real life saver in many tricky situations.

General Gameplan

Early Game: You should start off slowly. Place just one troop, such as Royal Giant or Ice Wizard to let your opponent react to the card. You need to know your opponent’s cards to make an effective push. If he uses Barbarians, you know you should always have a Fireball ready. Monitor his actions and find out what cards he uses and use that to your advantage. When he starts a push you should have enough Elixir to stop it, then make a small counter push with Royal Giant and Wizard or Ice Wizard. Use Sparky in emergency situations only before Double Elixir Time (last 1 minute).

Double Elixir Time: Now you can start making big push combinations with your Giant, Sparky and Wizards. Watch out for opponents Fireballs and don’t play everything at once. Always expect Hogs and Tanks, so as just said, time your pushes to not be out of cards when trying to defend.

How To Counter Cards:

  • Hog: Nowadays we can see him in almost every deck. Use Mini P.E.K.K.A to kill him and Skeletons and Zap to slow him down. Watch out for possible Freeze. Ice Wiz is also extremely helpful.
  • P.E.K.K.A/Giant Skeleton: Use Skeletons to distract and then use your Mini P.E.K.K.A to kill him (Do his support first). Ice Wiz helps a lot in slowing him down. You can also use Sparky when really needed (Watch out for opponents Zap!)
  • Giant/Golem/Royal Giant: Seen very often. Very easily countered. Just use your Mini P.E.K.K.A, Skeletons and Ice Wizard.
  • Wizard/Musk/Knight/Prince: Place Skeletons onto them + Mini P.E.K.K.A when needed
  • Barbarians/3 Musketeers: Fireball + Zap. For Barbarian Wizard also works great.
  • Balloon/Hound/Dragon: Biggest weakness of this deck but still very counterable with double Wizard. Zap and Fireball sometimes helps too.
  • Swarm Troops: Zap and Wizards
  • Valkyrie: Mini PEKKA
  • Princess: When timed right, Skeletons can kill her!
  • Buildings: Don’t worry about them, your Giant will do his job, better take care of protecting him! When Inferno Tower, use Skeletons, Zap and Mini P.E.K.K.A.

That’s pretty much everything I have to say about this Royal Sparky Deck. Thanks for reading guys!

  • Noa Hallam

    Could you make a f2p deck that can get a f2p player to arena 8?

    • Septic Venom9

      check out the valkyrie and mini pekka deck on the home page. that works very good and im in arena 8

    • Septic Venom9

      or you can use the giant balloon deck that most of my clan uses.(most are in arena 8)

    • Sheldon Ray Milender

      I am f2p. And i got sparky in a giant chest in builders workshop

  • John Suess

    do you have any legendaries yet, Will?

    • Will Potter

      Yes I have some great ones :D.

      • Aidan Ong

        i dont have a single one:(. have you ever substituted legendaries with 1 card? if so, tell me!

        • Will Potter

          It depends on your decks buddy. I always try to replace Legendaries with normal cards, in order to post those decks here.

  • Incognito _

    2 cancer cards in 1 deck!

    • AlexDaManGames

      What are the 2 cancer cards?

      • John Suess

        the two legendaries

        • AlexDaManGames

          XD Right

          • Aidan Ong

            seriously? legends are goooooooood!

          • the inquister

            That’s why they’re LEGENDS

    • Will Potter

      LOL, seriously? Sparky is cancer?

      • Aidan Ong

        yes it OP but easily countered via zap, guards, any air troop, other legendaries, defenses, spawner buildings, basically anything that can take two hits/ produces 2 troopes/ absorbs one hit

  • Ishmam

    Damnit this is the deck I lose against everytime!! #nerfthesparky

    • aleander clash

      True reduce its HP to 700

      • Ishmam

        Yeah but 700 is way too low, people won’t use the sparky at all then; fireball + zap will kill it easily. I think 950 – 1050 should do it. It is always a sparky + RG with a low health sparky doing the work. It’s ridiculous

    • Wasim Tesla

      Sparky can be easily countered with zap + freeze/zap+mini pekka.

      • Ishmam

        Well nobody sends out a sparky alone. It is easy to counter lone sparkys but with the royal giant?! Well u should try facing them cuz they r absolute nightmares. Otherwise I’m fine

        • Aidan Ong

          dude just destroy sparky with zap anden swarm them, but i agree with u whoever is listening pls nerf sparky!

          • Ishmam

            Yeah but what I’m saying is when the sparky is combined with the royal giant then it’s tough. If u kill sparky, RG takes out ur tower, while if u kill RG ur tower is done anyways.

            They should reduce the splash damage radius of the sparky a bit as when my musketeer shoots the sparky, despite being 1 tile away from sparky, she hits the tower along with that. Maybe a little bit of HP too, but then she won’t be a legendary at all lol

    • Will Potter

      I am so sorry about that :(.
      Good luck further buddy!

    • Tost er

      Never copy any deck that are put on any websites or youtube videos these decks work only for them because they are pros and require great skill and precise timing to use use decks

  • Hamish

    More to the destructive side! If the opponent plays a wrong move, KABOOM!

    • Will Potter


  • Ahmed

    This deck is absolutely shit to air troops

    • Will Potter

      2 Wizards + 2 Spells = ?

    • Aidan Ong

      i disagree! any air tropp can be defended by fireball+zap+ice wizard and wizard if it is a lava hound

  • Very Unlucky

    Now all I need to do is pull off some sort of hack from my free chests and get 2 legendaries. I can see it happening…in a million years :(. WAAAAAH!

    • Aidan Ong

      sad i also dont have any legends and im in arena 7 so im basically facing a tonne of sparkies and miners and ava hounds and sometimes others

  • Huy Vũ

    What will you do to counter a Mini Pekka with this deck? People usually use her to counter Royale Giant

    • Will Potter

      Hey Huy!
      Thanks for visiting my blog!
      You will want to use your Skeletons + Mini P.E.K.K.A in order to deal with Mini P.E.K.K.A pushes. Otherwise just play for a draw when you think you just can’ t win the game! It’s always better than losing!

    • Aidan Ong

      um…. use the mini pekka+ skeletons or just plain skeletons

  • Zel

    I’ve been using a deck that’s similar to this but with some modification. Still features the same royal giant + sparky, minion horde, valk, elixir pump, zap, mini pekka and fire spirits. Got me to legendary arena fast

    • Will Potter

      Thank you for sharing this Zel! Your rock!

  • Chermo Alpha

    I sub the skeletons for ice spirit and it works perfectly fine ! No joke , Try it ! This deck rocks !

    • Will Potter

      Thank you very much buddy!

  • Alex P

    I’ve replaced Mini Pekka with Gaurds and it works wonderfully for one less elixir! Great deck, I’m currently sitting at 2800+ with it!

    • Will Potter

      Nice one. Glad to hear that Alex!

  • TicTac

    I know this is an old post, but I keep coming back to it, a tip:
    -Use ice wizard in the middle to draw Valkyrie away from tower.

    • Will Potter

      Thanks for sharing the tip buddy!

  • End11

    Anyway to fit in princess?

  • DaSlime

    umm… the legendary behind the royal giant and beside the sparky is not the ice wizard….. it’s the princess.

  • Alastair

    Can I use lumberjack instead of mini pekka?

    • Will Potter

      yes, why not!

  • Alastair

    Will can I use lumberjack instead of mini pekka?
