Best Trophy Pushing Decks

Hey guys it’s Ash and today I’m going to share three of the best trophy pushing decks in Clash Royale at the moment.

Best Trophy Pushing Decks

Best Trophy Pushing Decks in Clash Royale

These decks have proven to work on the ladder.

As an avid deck builder, I always keep an eye of the best decks in the game, not only by top players, but also by lower level players.

I’m usually more interested in seeing a lower level player, for example, a level 11 player make it to 5000 trophies with low level cards because that’s not easy to do and it also shows you just how good that deck is for lower level players.

Most players don’t have high level Legendary and Epic cards because they’re hard to level up.

Hog Cycle Deck

The first deck is this very popular Hog cycle deck. This is probably the most popularly used deck right now by not only top players but also so many people in Arena 8 and 9.

The reason I recommend this deck is because it’s proven to be a very powerful deck and has cards that are easy to upgrade. Except The Log, you can literally upgrade any card in this deck easily.

If you don’t have The Log, then you can certainly use Zap instead. The main reason to use The Log would be for Tombstones, but Zap can also be very valuable for instantly killing Skeleton Army and the combination of Ice Golem + Zap can instantly kill Minions.

This deck works very well against almost any deck in the game.

You may have some problem while dealing with Lava Hound decks but luckily we don’t face them a lot these days. If you do, rush on the other lane with your Hog Rider immediately once your opponent places the Lava Hound down. This deck Elixir Average is just 2.6 so always keep the pressure. Don’t let your opponent has enough time to play the Lava Hound (or Golem, P.E.K.K.A, etc).

Goblin Barrel Rocket Deck

Clash Royale Fire SpiritsClash Royale KnightClash Royale Skeleton ArmyClash Royale Inferno Tower


The next deck is this super strong Goblin Barrel + Rocket deck. (Please take a look at this page to see how the nasty Rocket Goblin Barrel combo works!)

This deck can counter almost anything in the game and is one of the safest decks to play it. It’s a pretty easy deck to learn too.

All you have to do is play defense with while constantly pressuring your opponent with Goblin Barrel and Princess. If you don’t have Princess, a good replacement for her in this deck would be the Dart Goblin.

You have lots of ways to bait Zap and Log with your Skeleton Army, Fire Spirits, Princess, and Inferno Tower.

Mortar Rocket Deck

Last deck is with Mortar! Yes Mortar!!! I got this deck from Turtwigdata, who farmed 1 million Gold from Grand Challenges, all with the Mortar.

Mortar is a very underrated card and is one of the best cards to trophy push with because it’s a Common card, meaning it’s easy to level it up. Just place the Mortar down and force your opponent to “attack”, then, predict his moves and defend with everything you have (but not over-committing). Try to get at least 2 hits on your opponent’s every time.

Sometimes, when you want to enable the defensive mode, you can easily use Mortar as a defensive building. Its splash damage is extremely helpful at dealing with Royal Giant pushes (it takes out supports). The splash damage is also very useful on offense because so many players accidentally place their troops next to the Tower, which is being attacked by the Mortar.

Also, as the Mortar has the “dead zone”, you can sometimes use it to deal with Giant pushes. It will ignore the Giant and target the supports behind.
