Solid Mortar Deck

Hello my friends, today I am going to show you one of the best Mortar decks I have seen in the current meta game. If you are getting sick of Giant, Hog Rider and Royal Giant, give this awesome one a try!

Solid Mortar Deck

Mortar is obviously the main win condition of this deck. Try to not over-commit on protecting it If your when your opponent is trying to take it down. It’s better to just cycle through the deck and get it again later. For example, If your opponent drops down the Hog Rider to deal with your Mortar, it’s better to do nothing. The Mortar still can do a few hits before getting destroyed and give you a good trade. Anyway, If your opponent uses small troops to take out the Mortar, it’s always a good idea to protect it with either Ice Spirit or Fire Spirits.

Mini P.E.K.K.A: In this deck, she is mainly used to defend. Remember, she is not the main win condition of this deck so don’t be tempted to send the push of Mini P.E.K.K.A + Spirits + Zap. Just cycle back to the Mortar by dropping either Fire Spirits or Ice Spirit down. Anyway, If you successfully defend the Mortar and Mini P.E.K.K.A still has good HP, couple her with Fire Spirits for a counter push. Mini P.E.K.K.A is excellent at dealing with Miner, Hog Rider, Giant, Golem, Royal Giant, Sparky… She is the best tank killer at the moment!

Guards can easily down with tons of threats, especially support troops coming after a tank, giving the Inferno Tower more time to deal with tankers. Guards can deal pretty nice DPS so you can couple them with Ice Spirit in the worst case to deal with Hog Rider. Guards are excellent at dealing with Sparky. Zap the Sparky first then use Guards. If you don’t have Zap in your hand, drop them down to soak 2 hit from the Sparky while Mini P.E.K.K.A is working on the other side of the Sparky.

Inferno Tower: Excellent at dealing with any tanker, both air and ground. This is definitely the best defensive building at the moment, when Giant Decks are rocking.


Ice Spirit: Always try to place it down with the mortar. Ice Spirit is excellent for only 1 Elixir. It freezes everything for 2 seconds, gives you enough time to react, gives the Inferno Tower enough time to shred “a few” tankers in seconds. Ice Spirit is the key which helps you deal with Giant Balloon, P.E.K.K.A Double Prince, Hog Rider… One of the best cards at the moment, hands down.

Fire Spirits are just so good. They can easily clear out swarms instantly, making the Motart lock onto the Tower. Also good when coupled with Mini P.E.K.K.A on the counterpush. Please take a look at here to read everything about the Fire Spirits.

Zap: Needless to say! Zap is the best spell in Clash Royale. Excellent at dealing with Goblins, Spirits… Zap resets Sparky, Inferno Tower, Princes, Royal Giant… Zap + Fire Ball is my favorite combo to take out Three Musketeers.

Fireball: Another excellent spell in Clash Royale. Great for defending and finishing off Tower. I use Fireball on defense most of the time when the Fire Spirits are out of rotation. Fireballing Elixir Collector gives the equal trade but I don’t usually do that. I just rush the Mortar combo when I see my opponent placing down the Elixir Collector. Please take a look at here to read everything about this excellent spell.

General Gameplan

Our general gameplan is to drop the Mortar down 1 tile back so It can easily target the opponent’s Tower while still being protected by our Tower. Do your best to counter everything your opponent plays.

I am going to list the most popular counters to the Mortar and the best ways to deal with them here:

  • Goblins, Skeletons, Guards: Fire Spirits.
  • Minions, Minion Horde: Fire Spirit or Ice Spirit + Zap.
  • Barbarians = Zap + Fire Spirits or Fire Spirits only If they took 1 hit from the Mortar.
  • Knight, Miner, Prince, Musketeer, Hog Rider = Mini P.E.K.K.A + Guards + Ice Spirit If needed.
  • Dark Prince, Valkyrie = Mini P.E.K.K.A + Ice Spirit If needed.
  • Cannon = Guards or Mini P.E.K.K.A.
  • Bomb Tower = Mini P.E.K.K.A.
  • Inferno Tower = Mini P.E.K.K.A + Ice Spirit/Zap If needed.

    What can i use instead of guards and ice spirit?

    • kwugfighter

      Guards: Skeletons
      Ice Spirit: I don’t know

      • Terry Bert

        guards : goblins
        ice spirit : skeletons

    • PhantomKiller

      guards are unreplaceable so wait until u get guards, and ice spirit has unique abilities and gives positive elixir trade always.

      • Maeda Atsuko

        what level should the guard be?

        • Abed Daouk

          You need the guards at least lvl 3 because once they reached lvl 3 there sheilds can survive a zap

        • Will Potter

          At least level 3 If you want to push to Arena 9 with ease 😀

        • PhantomKiller

          lvl 3 Guards’ shield dies to lvl 10 zap and lvl 4 shield dies to lvl 11 zap since many have lvl 10 zap at frozen peak-legendary lvl 4 are recommended which is hard to get

      Hi! Tinytwee here. Ice Spirit is really not replaceable with this deck, it’s crucial for cheap cycling and is a core component in defense. As for the Guards, you can use skeletons or goblins but will have lesser success with it at defense. Those can be Zapped while Guards can’t and its a total of 6 hit points compared to 3 for skeletons and Goblins. I used to use Goblins with they’re high DPS but experimented with Guards and gained 300 trophies. Hope that helps.

    • Will Potter

      You don’t have them?

      • Bhaala Natarajen

        No man , I just recently came to arena 7.

    • Chained Chaos

      Use dark prince if you don’t have guards.And use skellies in place of ice spirit.Altho there not nearly as effective guards and ice spirits.

  • SillyBear

    Would you sub in any legendary? Also since you’re using IT for tank melting would valk work better as a backline decimater?

    • WestPKMN

      Log for Fireball seems like the only good sub. This deck seems to be unique as you really can’t sub in a legendary

      • D-Mate19

        Or possibly ice wizard for fireball

    • Noa Hallam

      lumberjack for mini p

  • WestPKMN

    I use a Sparky Mortar deck. No regrets.

  • Colin Leon

    Can I get to legendary arena with this deck? what card levels?

    • Will Potter

      Get your card to at least 9/7/3 If you want to push to Arena 9 with ease 🙂

  • Ethan

    Nice deck but I would recommend when placing the mortar, put it one tile to the right (if pushing the right lane) or left (if pushing the left lane) and one tile back from the bridge, that way, if you place a building next to the mortar and one tile ahead troops will be lured to the defensive building instead of the mortar. Not sure if you would want to use this with an expensive defense like the inferno tower but it works well with a tombstone/cannon 🙂

    • Terry Bert

      yh got to legendary doing that with cannon

  • Lone Wolf

    first of all as a seige player in frozen peak i am thrilled there is a mortar deck here as it is a great card. Second: this is very close to the siege deck that got me to frozen peak which was Rocket instead of fireball. Ice wiz instead o zap. Cannon instead of inferno. But this deck looks very strong

    • Will Potter

      It’s very fun to play against siege players nowadays xD

  • Chained Chaos

    Xbow’s superior

  • King Bapalapashamalamadingdong

        • King Bapalapashamalamadingdong

    Mortar Deck-.- Not To Be Rude.Its A No Skill Cards Its Like Face The XBow When Its No Buffed Thats Why Alot Of People Hated Steriod69

    • Norvelas

      Not to be rude either, but mortar/Xbow decks require way more skill than hog/RG/giant poison decks

      • Andrew Barnes

        Jesus Christ guys, all decks require skill. There is skill involved in using any card.

    • Will Potter

      Mortar does require skills for sure :D.

    • ChaosBlaze

      Steriod69 wasn’t hated that much, and mortar do require skill. Miner decks don’t require skill. Even a 6 year old could use a legendary miner cycle deck. princess ice wizard lumberjack miner GG!!!!

  • T Z

    This is a pretty good mortar deck and ive recently switched to playing mortar as giant poison is becoming pretty boring lol. Im sitting at 2800 trophies and ive won most of my matches with this deck so far. I substituted the guards for minions as i think this deck needs more air support and i used lumberjack instead of the mini pekka. i hope i can get to legendary arena soon 🙂

    • Will Potter

      Nice one. I am so glad to hear this. Really want to see the comeback of siege deck again!

  • Gammaraze Crafter

    I got to 3500+ trophies by using this deck: Mortar, Skeletons, Arrows, Zap, Barbarians, Minion Horde, Miner and Elixir Collector. Note: Arrows can be changed with poison or fireball, and Miner can be switched out with cannon.

    • Will Potter

      Nice! Seems pretty funny! I will give it a try for sure! Thanks man xD


    i use royale giant instead ov ice spirit and inferno dragon instead of mini PEKKA and it stil works well,with a elixir collector instead of zap

    • Will Potter

      Wow cool. What is your current Arena mate?

  • Civan Aydın

    can ı use lightning spell instead of fireball?

    • Will Potter

      I wouldn’t do that!
