Why you should have Mini P.E.K.K.A in your Deck

After the last Clash Royale update, Mini P.E.K.K.A becomes the most benefited card in game. Our meta in game has shifted to where the Mini P.E.K.K.A is extremely useful against almost any opponent.
If you upset about Hog Rider and Royal Giant deck, you should give Mini P.E.K.K.A a try! She has a great matchup against almost popular decks right now, she also can be slotted into most decks!


Why you should use Mini P.E.K.K.A

Mini P.E.K.K.A can easily solo-kill these cards:

  • Valkyrie
  • Royal Giant
  • Hog Rider
  • Musketeer
  • Ice Wizard
  • Miner
  • Knight
  • Golem
  • Dark Prince
  • Giant

With the help of Zap, Mini P.E.K.K.A can remove the whole Barbarian squad. When coupled with Cannon, it is incredibly against Hog Rider and Royal Giant. Although this is a rare card but I believe that we all have it at a decent level (as it is a Training Camp card). Start requesting it my friends!

On offense, I usually use her in these ways:

  • Drop her behind the Tower when the Miner is digging.
  • Drop her right in the mid-lane to deal with Hog Rider. This makes the Freeze harder to freeze both her and the Tower.
  • Couple her with Cannon to deal with Royal Giant.
  • Drop her right on a Golem/Giant/… once they have crossed the bridge.

After the successful defend, you can easily turn your opponent into the panic mode.

If you are having one of these cards in your deck, you should consider replacing it with the Mini P.E.K.K.A:

  • Knight
  • Goblins as Mini P.E.K.K.A can’t be killed by Zap.
  • Valkyrie, especially If you want to deal with Hog Rider and Prince.
  • Prince as Mini P.E.K.K.A is faster and high damage.
  • Hog Rider (in some decks, you can easily replace Hog Rider with Mini P.E.K.K.A, such as this one)

Just give this little monster a try my friends! You will love it! For sure!

    YAY I love mni pekka! But what do you do if you have mini pekka, goblins and hog in your deck? How do you replace them with mini killer?

    • Joseph Pitter

      Just think about what you said there Sirius, you already have the mini pekka in your deck. So your all good.

      • Very Unlucky

        he has mini pekka…but not a mini killer!

    • Very Unlucky

      Replace mini pekka with mini killer

      • -sirius-

        Oh thank you! I got to 1800+ tropheys with your tip! You are awesome!

        • Will Potter

          xD this is awesome!!!

  • Lone Wolf

    interesting post lol

  • I love mini pekkas, they r fast and do a lot of damage to towers and troops. Check out the deck I use below, it helps me so much, got from arena 4 to 7 with it!


  • minddrifter

    I replaced my barbarians with mini pekka recently and it has been a great change. I use giant, musketeer, mini pekka, baby dragon, valkyrie, minion horde, arrows, fireball. I love this deck. You can throw any of these behind giant for a good push. Once you get familiar with what you’re playing against you can get more strategic to deal with nearly anything using 2 of any of these options together for the most part. I generally do counter pushing. Obviously arrows and fireball are for cleanup or elixir advantage (minion hordes, wizard, etc). Horde, musketeer, and baby dragon are good against defensive buildings and air attacks. Anyway, mini pekka has been amazing! I’ve gotten to around 2100 with this deck (would be higher except I play at work and have to quit matches at times, lol, aaaand…..I’m kinda mistake prone too, lol.)

      Nice! Thanks for sharing this mate xD


    mini pekka is one of the best cards in the game,easily can destroy every thing! i have changed it with hog in my deck and its become a great change my deck was a hog and royal giant deck but now i attack only with royal giant and because i changed the hog with mini pekka i have more support troops and the work for my royal giant has been very easy, i think its so nesesery for all decks! 😀

    • Will Potter

      xD I am very glad to hear this! Seems like there are loads of Mini P.E.K.K.A fans here guys!

      • Zigge

        I’m one of them xD

  • Ryan Wong

    mini pekka is good but skeletons are much better for only one elixir it does almost as much damage, can be used to lure troops, surround wizards, counter prince,mini pekka, musketeers. So versatile it deserves its own guide

  • Robmob3000

    Mini P.E.K.K.A FTW!!!

    • Will Potter

      xD xD

    Why replace the Valkyrie with Mini P.E.K.K.A when the Valkyrie has more hitpoints? I use the Valkyrie to tank hits from the anti-air troops in my Balloon deck and destroy irritating Spear Goblins.

    • Will Potter

      You “can”, not “have to” replace Valkyrie with Mini P.E.K.K.A. In some decks, when you have enough tanky units and enough splash damage dealers, Mini P.E.K.K.A is a great choice!

    • Asdfire

      Why not have both? I have both, i just leave out the Hog, cause I feel like the mini P.E.K.K.A has better value.

  • Boyboy

    Just so you know P.E.K.K.A is him 😀 It’s a guys name

    still like barbarians over mini pekka. Barbarian dies to fireball but mini pekka dies to minions or cheap troops.

    • IluvCR

      barbs die to bomber though, and mini pekka is often supported with something like zap

    • Hammad Shahid

      They have different purposes. There’s barely any situations when you want to use mini PEKKA as a tank, and the barbarians are used mostly for tanking.

  • My giant + mini pekka deck crushes at Arena 2 and 3. I’ll be sending it to you soon! 😀

    • Will Potter

      Make it unique and I will post it! xD

    Love the mini pekka, I use her in my hog deck which is hog, valk, mini pekka, goblins, soear goblins( or minions sometimes) fireball, zap, fire spirits. With the valk taking care of any support and the mini pekka taking care of any hogs/Giants it gives me a really solid defense and great counter pushes. Also use mini pekka in my lava hound deck as my main source of defense, irreplaceable in my opinion. And pekka is a she I’m pretty sure lol.

    • Will Potter

      xD Thank you a lot for sharing this Matt!

  • Hriday Gohel (Hr.G)

    Mini peeka is my all time favourite card.
    It can kill wizard also if dropped nearby

    • Will Potter

      And we do to lots of things with her xD

  • Zigge YT

    I’ve discovered the reason for the ranged Mini P.E.K.K.A. It only work against Hog Riders because that’s the only very fast moving unit that target buildings only. The Mini P.E.K.K.A’s startup frame takes so long time so that the hog rider is able to run away from her. Hope I’m right and thanks for the awesome guide 😛 Btw I HATE typing Mini P….. Yes, you understand.

      Thanks for sharing this mate!

  • kenneth stebbing

    I’m a level 9 in A9, but my mini pekka is barely level 6. Can I use it now or should I wait to get it to level 7 or possibly even level 8? Thanks Will, sorry for the late question

    • Will Potter

      Just give it a try buddy! It doesn’t make much change!

    Pretty cool stuff, but I think you forgot that the mini pekka has considerable somewhat-low amount of hitpoints (especially when compared to a prince/valkyrie/knight), and that may be troublesome for offense.

  • ЯЎаи к

    Honestly, you don’t need mini pekka. I have never liked it and never will. Gob hut, valkyrie, etc are just so much better for counterpushing in my opinion. Sorry guys

    • Will Potter

      Goblin Hut?

    • Lord Parmenius

      Goblin hut? seriously? Etc? which cards do you mean? Each card has a different use. A valk can’t replace mini p and vice versa. Honestly, Goblin hut, again wtf?

    • NemNem

      Goblin hut?
      Go home son you’re drunk

    A cheap push with mini pekka is to push with mini pekka, valk, and fire spirits, and make the valk take the hits. Very effective if the opponent has the wrong cards or is not skilled lol

  • Hammad Shahid

    I use a double prince deck w/ D. Prince, Prince, Witch, Arrows, Lightning, Collector, Minions, and Knight. I was thinking of replacing the prince w/ the Mini-PEKKA. Tried it for one round and success. Should I continue it or not? Arena 7, success with my original deck (one w/ the prince was a ratio of 14 wins: 14 losses.) Is it worth giving this a try?
