Three Musketeers Ram Deck for 20-Win Challenge
Hi again, here with another deck guide, this time it’s how to get 20 wins with 3 musketeers bait + some general advice that most people overlook.
First, the deck and the video of the 20 wins proof.
I’m going to refer to key times throughout the video to illustrate what I’m explaining and help you become a better player!
What I said above covers most of it but I will explain some more things.
You will be pumping up mostly in single Elixir and ONLY in Double Elixir if it’s 3 Musks Vs. 3 Musk OR if you recognize that they can’t punish you during Double Elixir (e.g. against Graveyard decks).
It’s also the main card you will be using to bait out their heavy spells.
3 Musketeers: There are 2 ways you can play 3 Musks: Offensively or defensively.
When you’ve built up an Elixir lead or baited out their spell you can split 3 Musks at the back and build up a slow push.
This does 2 things:
- It maintains control of both lanes because your opponent won’t push into 3 Musks.
- It forces your opponent to play defensive.
In some situations, you can play 3 Musketeers defensively if you know their heavy spell isn’t in cycle and build a devastating counterpush once you clean up their troops on your side (refer to 1:03)
Ice Golem: Always hold onto Ice Golem vs X-Bow.
There is also 3 ways you can play Ice Golem again 1. Kite opposing troops into opposite lane refer to 5:20 (e.g. vs P.E.K.K.A) 2. Play it in front of Battle Ram as this will make it very difficult to stop the Battle Ram’s charge. Make sure you hold onto Ice Golem + Zap if you recognise the opponent has Minion Horde 3. Play it in front of your Minion Horde/Gang to tank for the opponents pushes (e.g. if opponent goes Hog Rider + Goblin Gang)
Use it mainly to support your pushes against the opponents swarm troops or to reset target onto Miner instead of Musketeer in some situations.
Use defensively if you are pumping to build up an Elixir lead and hold for offence when building up a push
Always hold onto Goblin Gang if
- Opponent plays Miner on Pump
- Opponent has Goblin Barrel.
It is mainly a defensive tool against your opponents pushes but can be used offensively if you bait out their cheap spells in some situations.
Battle Ram: Your main win condition.
In some situations it it appropriate to use Battle Ram to kite troops (e.g. vs a Prince) however it is mainly used to support your Musketeer pushes.
If you’ve built up an Elixir lead, placing an Ice Golem in front of Battle Ram will make it extremely difficult to stop it’s charge.
Miner: Your secondary win condition. again in some situations it is appropriate to play Miner defensively.
However, it is mostly used to
- Deal with Elixir Pump.
- Snipe princesses
- Support your split pushes by sniping medium sized troops (Musketeer, electrowizard, Ice Wizard etc).
In some situations, it is okay to play Miner + Gang/Horde if you know their spell is out of cycle however in most situations, Ram + Gang/Horde is a more deadly push
Minion Horde The key to this deck that makes 3 Musk bait such a strong deck.
It is also a win condition in some matchup’s if played properly.
Used mainly defensively and offensively in conjuction with Battle Ram when you’ve baited out their big spells, the opponent will have a difficult time stopping your push (refer to 11:50)
The whole premise of the deck is to build up an Elixir advantage with Pump ONLY if you know you are able to defend the Pump AND your Tower.
The main situations you wouldn’t Pump is vs a deck with Giant/Balloon + Miner because you won’t have the Elixir to defend the Pump and your Tower at the same time.
Asides from this, you will Pump up most of the time if you recognize that you can defend the Pump against the opponents deck (Watch at 11:20, notice how I pumped up and made sure both Goblin Gang and Ice Golem was in my hand to defend his Miner and Flying Machine. I recognised what deck he had and made sure I held onto the correct cards to defend my Pump).
Once you build up an Elixir lead and bait out their spells in most situations, there are 3 main pushes you can do.
Battle Ram + Minion Horde/Goblin Gang + Miner
ONLY in some situations: If you bait out a Poison and recognize that the opponent doesn’t have a good answer to Minion Horde, this is a devastating push that will almost always do damage to their Tower AND the Minion Horde/Gang will most likely kill their defending troops so you don’t have to deal with them on your side)
Refer to to 1:05 -> I recognized that the opponent used Log AND was low on Elixir. Therefore my push with Goblin would get a lot of value
Split 3 Musketeers + Battle Ram in lane of single Musketeer + Horde/Gang/Miner
Depending on opponents card cycle
This push is very effective when
- The opponent is down 2-3 Elixir and
- When you bait out their medium spell (Poison/Fireball/Rocket).
Your push will almost always do damage to the Tower (refer to 7:50)
Battle Ram at back + 3 Musketeers at bridge in one lane
This is push you will do ONLY IF
- You bait out their big spell and their cycle is slow
- They don’t have a P.E.K.K.A, Mega Knight or Dark Prince It’s a very effective push against Lava Hound, Graveyard Hut and X-Bow Rocket nado decks as they will not have the right cards in cycle to defend the 3 musks in one lane.
Refer to 4:01
There are of course other small pushes you can do (solo Ram, Miner + Gang/Horde etc) but they are very situational and dependent on your ability to recognise the opponents card cycle (spells mainly) and Elixir.
The 3 pushes I listed above are the main main ones you will be using
P.E.K.K.A Hut Control: The to key to beating this matchup is Minion Horde.
The opponent will usually run Log instead of Zap and even if they still run Zap, it is very difficult for them to deal with Minion Horde.
Always play Ram + Horde in lane OPPOSITE to the Goblin Hut when you’ve baited out their big spell.
If the opponent has Poison in cycle, you can still play Ram + Horde BUT make sure you wait 1-1.5 seconds before playing Minion Horde as the opponent will usually respond with a ground troop that your Minion Horde can cleanup THEN they will have to spend more Elixir poisoning Horde.
From here you can freely Pump up and hold onto Gang for Miner.
Usually you will not split 3 musks in the back unless
- You have a very big Elixir advantage
- You can get defensive value out of 3 musks and build up a counter push
Lavaloon: The key to beating this deck is getting value out of 3 Musketeers or Horde when you’ve baited out their spell.
Opponent plays Hound -> go Ram opposite lane -> wait 1.5 seconds -> then drop Horde.
This will bait out a Fireball allowing you to play 3 Musks in one lane and easily clean up their push.
Alternatively, play Ram + Gang in opposite lane. This will bait out a Zap allowing your Minion Horde to get value instead.
Graveyard Hut: Again, the key is getting value out of Minion Horde.
One very effective push against Graveyard Hut decks is Ram at back + 3 Musks in one lane if you bait out their spells.
Most Graveyard decks only have 1 counter to 3 musks
If your opponent goes Ice Golem + Graveyard ALWAYS play Goblin Gang on the Ice Golem and then play your own Ice Golem to defend the Graveyard.
You can also play Horde on the Ice Golem if you don’t have Gang in cycle. Another devastating push is Horde + Ram when you bait out their big spell and you know they have Log instead of Zap
X-Bow (hardest matchup): Watch from 6:50 to to 10:38.
I play against a top 100 global X-Bow player and still manage to win.
The gameplay explains it far better than I could through words but I’ll mention a few key things. Always save Ice Golem AND play it on opposite lane to X-Bow.
Reason being if they drop Archers or Tesla to defend the X-Bow, not only will your Ice Golem die faster in same lane as X-Bow, you now have to deal with their support cards before you can take out the X-Bow.
Once you’ve distracted the X-Bow with Ice Golem, how you take out the X-Bow is highly dependent on the spells and cards they have in cycle.
- If Fireball or Log is out of cycle, you can go Miner + Horde/Gang.
- If they drop Tesla to support X-Bow, push hard on the other lane with Battle Ram.
- If they have both Fireball and Log in cycle, play Ice Golem opposite lane, wait patiently to build up 7 Elixir then drop Ram + Miner onto X-Bow and support with Zap only if necessary.
The video shows this nicely
Final General Tips for Getting 20 Wins
- If you are getting tilted, stop and take a break. There is nothing worse then playing while you’re frustrated or emotional. You need to have a perfectly clear mind to hit 20 wins.
- Don’t keep switching decks. Choose 1 strong meta deck, keep practising with it and learn all the matchups inside out. This is why I was able to hit 20 wins
- When you’re playing, don’t just consider taking down the Tower. Keep the following 3 things in mind, it’s what separates the good players from the pro players
- How can I defend as efficiently as possible (Technical skill = Troop timing + troop placement)
- Have an awareness of the opponents Elixir
- Be aware of you and your opponents card cycle. This will dictate how you should defend and push
Goodluck everyone in the 20 wins, I hope this guide helps you out.

OMG first and best!!!
haha first reply
first reply to the first reply
Second reply to the first reply 😀
SIKE, first to reply about replying to replies
SIKE, THAT’S THE WROOONG REPLY! OOOOOHH!!
I’m the lastest I’m the bastard 🙁 2nd
I am not a 3 musketeer player but am looking for a new miner deck for 3600 trophies to hopefully help me push to 4k
I’d recommend a Miner cycle deck, either of these:
Inferno Tower/Dragon (Tower preferred for Hog)
The 2nd deck is a deck by Electr1fy and works really well this way versus elite barbs:
When the opponent rushes with Ebarbs+knight/valkyrie/anything, put your Princess down in the other lane, Tornado and then Knight (you’ve got to do everything quickly) and you might want to add some Bats into the mix. the Tornado Damage+the Princess’ splash will do the damage your knight couldn’t do.
The first deck is also one by Electr1fy but I’ve tweaked it: I replaced the bandit with the Ice Spirit so you could defend Ebarbs better, and then you have The Log to bop lone Wizards, Ewizes, Muskies and what not. The Infernos help versus Golem, and I prefer the Tower because Golem Ewiz can hurt, and relying on the Gob Gang for the Hog isn’t the best idea, but the deck is useable with the Inferno Dragon.
And that is it, gz if you read all of this stuff; if you did, you either really care about Clash Royale or you’re just really bored
Could replace The Log on either of the decks with an over leveled Zap but it’s not recommended, but it doesn’t hurt too much on the first deck
I just made an interesting Miner PEKKA Skelly barrel deck.
– Skelly Barrel
– E Wiz
Try not to use miner on ladder..
5th, and its nice to see someone with a level 9 Ram! What’s not to love about Battle Ram? That’s why I have mine at level 9 (- v -)
Lol, my ram in only lvl 7. Then again, i’m not even in legendary arena.
I’m in legendary and mine is seven lol. All the cards that got me to leggy were tourney standard
and them i have cards slightly higher than tourney standard yet im still stuck at the 3400-3600 area
I pretty sure golem is not level independent thats what i used unless I have really great skill but I doubt that lol
My 2nd account has a lvl 5 golem as a lvl 9 😐
Mine is only 4 but can be upgraded to seven. Then again, i’m not even in legendary arena. Then again, i’m poor.
lol same, i’m poor
I mean, I used Ram as my main win condition to get to Legendary…so :/ You can kinda sorta push up with ram if you want to.
I push up with the good ole PEKKA
wow…I still beat PEKKA with my deck tho…. XD
eh, PEKKA is my favorite card
lel mine is only lvl 6 cuz i dont use it often, also i got lumberjack on my 2nd account
Uhm… just wanted to say that on deckshop.pro, this deck has a pretty bad rating, but I think that once you know how to use this deck, you should be fine.
I really wouldn’t rely on that. If you are comfortable with it, use it. The worst player can be using the so called “best deck” and they would still lose to a mediocre player with a deck that they are comfortable with that is not the best deck.
Deck shop is unreliable, just my opinion
game skill is as important as how good a deck is. A good player even with a bad deck can get wins as long as the player is skilled enough at using the deck and game knowledge
the deck shop rating isnt that bad
Poll: What is the META right now?
I AM the META
Do you mean that fat guy? 😉
Aha META knight
challenges- pekka miner.
ladder- logbait or hog cycle. X-Bow is starting to creep its way back.
Nice guide lolman
Dangit I’m late
i m ntot vry confuzen rgiht now
who cares about spelling amiright?
Wleell I caere abuout splleinig
Hey lolman I recently submitted a golem double dragon deck. It got trashed, which is fine, but could you tell me what I did wrong if you saw it? Thanks I just want to get better
He ain’t a deck editor lol
Oops haha lol
I am lol just don’t have time to really look over guides atm.
Oh I thought it was just Rohan norby and will
I got my guide trashed 3 times due to the title, maybe you should change yours?
mine was “insane golem double dragon deck for trophy pushing” idk what would be wrong with that
use capitals and exaggeration to make it more catch and click-baity so Will sees your guide.
Thanks I’ll try that
Dunno didn’t take a look at it
I like this deck but my card levels aren’t high enough for my trophies
u never said what levels the miner, goblin gang and minion horde were
Because they’re level independent i guess
Ah I forgot
Miner (3), gob gang (12), horde (12)
I suck at 3m decks
I saw this deck quite a lot, and got rekt
Overall, i hate 3m
i hate facing them and hate using them 🙂
lel i get destroyed like 80% of the time by 3m decks 😛
Ikr, fireball and there as good as dead
I have made a deck of mine that is EXACTLY the same of this weeks before Lolman posted it. Damn son!
well it is a meta deck…
The original deck I made had Guards in place of Goblin Gang and Barbarians in place of Minion Horde. But it failed epically so I replaced them and got huge surprises seeing this deck everywhere
The deck is very famous, im sure some pro made it before you
Believe it or not, but actually I made it on my own. Still I’ve seen so many pro’s playing better on this deck…
It’s awesome how new this new three musketeer deck is. You can tell how new this new deck is because it’s been used for the past few months. It’s really new. The new guide is cool too.
The deck isn’t new…(pretty famous) I expected a guide about this anyways. GG. I would use ice golem instead of knight, and bandit instead of battle ram.
The new part was all Will lol it’s an old school 3m deck I make the guide XD title and whatnot is all Will
I realise 3 levels weren’t listed they are
Is There any replacement for the miner?
FINALLY!!! NOT LOG BAIT!!!!
hehe…what about xbow…..
Can be tough but beatable. You have knight/ ice golem, miner and ram to deal with the x-bow.
hahaha u wanna fb sometime bruh
Do the numbers beside the cards (ex: Zap (12)) represent the suggested minimum level?
I think those numbers mean his current levels, not minimum. otherwise, I could never use this deck. also, YAY YOUR BACK MORE CANNONS DREAM
I finished chapters 14 and 15, but idk when to post them
u should post now
she is still alive?
Well… yea. I like the 3M deck btw
I see this deck so many times
the offense and defense are off the charts!!! (OVER 9000!!!)
I have the next two chapters finished
My opponent had lightning and lv8 fireball. I have this deck with lv7 3M. Who do you think won?
Can change Ram/miner with royal ghost??
How can i fight vs Mega Knight… ??
i lost because i tornadoed a sparky to the tower it’s all your fault change your name sparky and tornado don’t work well
(•_•) – ( •_•)>⌐■-■ – (⌐■_■) Deal with it
Thats me 😀 cheers for posting my guide poker
What’s your trophie range?
Congo on 20
Three Muskies vs many decks are a positive elixir trade.
That makes no sense whatsoever
He’s trying to be orange juice
i really hate playing pump after the nerfs but i guess it works in a 3 musky deck to bait spells
@herro you are back?
was always here, just been lurking around for a while
i used pump way less often ever since it got nerfed to 6 elixir
5th, hybrid FTW never claimed
edit: I thought it was pi day
When you try your best and you don’t succeed…
My favorite line
even tho it’s old and sad.
Lol, it was 2 days ago
look at the date it was posted
When stephan hawking died…. RIP him. He was amazing.
i did not like him much
Why? He didn’t do much harm to people. And he was an epic physicist. (I think)
he believed in the wrong stuf
because he said god doesn’t exist?
He was autistic. It’s nit an insult, it was a fact. Super crazy
He survived more than 50 years than he was supposed to.
I don’t think he was autistic… where did you get that from…
I saw it on the internet so it must have been true. It was just a rumor I very well could be wrong
lol boi aren’t you outdated
Definitely one of the best decks right now!
I thought so too, copied the deck, used it in the challenge, and immediately got a loss. that’s why I’m 9-1 rn
Don’t expect for a win at the first time dude.
the thing is I have used the deck for a long time and whoaaa pekka rekts it if you are good at 3m then sure but not for me
I love that deck
i got 20 wins 6 times on clients’ account with 3m bait! Playing it since before 3m heal meta tho
new poll : what challenges did you completely win?
I won the retro royale for my friend I think but not on my account cuz I’m only level 7 as you already know probably.
retro royale, heal draft, skellie barrel challenge, touchdown challenge, legendary challenge(the most recent one), classic challenge, double and triple elixir, etc
skele barrel, retro, touch down and some others (i am trash at challenges as i cant deal with tourney lvl cards
There were quite a few for me on my 2 accts, Retro Royale, modern royale, royal ghost mirror, Halloween challenge, and maybe a few more that I forgot
Nearly all except Ewiz and MA.
A lot, the one I’m most proud if was the 9 – 0 in the sudden death.
I won the skeleton barrel one
deck of the week? more like deck of the year
didn’t it change?
Hey will, I think you may have forgot to post my guide, I can resubmit it if needed
YEAH EXACTLY MINE TOO
Lol it changed recently
i really hate this challenge every single entry is hard counter (not even joking) and i switched decks every time (my first try was decent but lost 2 times in a row to hard counter x-bows at the end when i had 8-1)
I had 2 wasted entries, I went 2-3 the 1st time and 4-3 the 2nd time, my 3rd loss in both attempts were from my crappy iPad bailing out on me (game crashed)
It’s an iPad mini 1 right? Mine does that too so I just play on my phone
It’s older than that, it’s an iPad 2
Lol I don’t even have a phone
I shouldn’t complain if I were you. My sister is in 9th grade and she has this. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e3be6e9da4a1efd02e6b2f769e925e459e6c4fae311c9fc0c6d8a3ee62dcc72e.png
New generation samsung young
I’m in that grade lvl…
Also is that a Samsung galaxy s 3 mini???
No samsung young
Complaining def helps
you complain for weeks about your dumb guide not getting posted, so ti ,you yes it does
I didn’t complain. I simply have been asking will to post it. Nice try tho
I feel you bro
yeah, I played like giant prince, after facing 6 pekka decks in a row and losing to one, I switched to hog, where i immediately faced double building+tornado. Awesome
lol, u said 5h and 5thy
Take it. Honestly I thought it was funny that I can claim better positions and then take the worst one lol
A bit of a classic but it still is good as ever, sending a MA balloon soon after lots of play.
Well, it seems as will will not post my guide. Here is it if you guys want to check it out. https://docs.google.com/document/d/10uecR0IAUUCs98-3BqVV3uh1aPLI2yqhkmOjo1TkQIw
Going through your guide, I have found that at many places the sentence formation isn’t right which results in sending unclear message. That’s the only fault I saw but the quantity is so high that it hampers the quality.
Fair enough. If I fix this, could I get a shot at getting it posted? I mean, will said he would in a day or two a week ago.
Yeah I guess
I fixed the structure
Life is hard sometimes.
The classically annoying deck. I had nightmares…
I’m surprised nobody posted a guide about countering the pekka deck
Why are you still not a mod scumbag? (This is not an insult)
umm I get that scumbag isn’t an insult, but why did you call me that? is it because my former name was scumbag? and dunno, maybe I need to post more guides.
EDIT: I reposted my guide with lenny face in the title, hopefully Will senpai notices me
Yes it is cuz of your former name.
Ayyyyyy… no reposts. (Pls no offend)
I did that 2 hours ago lol
YES 13-2!!! NOW THE MAX WIN SLOT DISPLAYS 13 INSTEAD OF 12!!! YAY
immediately got a loss due to my stupid slippery hand placing tesla too far away.
I’m the most slippery one here…
While mine is still the salty 11
you’ll get it next time
POLL: Hey I have been curious about the audience of the website’s guides, could you all reply to this with what your PA (Personal Best Trophies) is, Mine is 4029, Thanks! 🙂
4014, yea I suck
What? I’m at 2316!
I’m lvl 11, so…
Not bad for a not-pro (because I get so >:( after losing, and I don’t bother checking because I get so peeved)
Scratch that 3755

4100 something, can’t remember
Mine (drumroll please)……..
Yo it’s ok, there is probably tonnes of people who have an account here and don’t comment are probably around your rank to, most people who comment tend to be around this rank because of the wide knowledge of the game.
4256, and nearing that number this season (I forgot to play a lot lol)
~2700, I know, I really suck…
I was losing a lot before I changed to Golem Double Prince. 11 – 3 . Its alright.
hey better than me 5-3
2-3, 4-3, and 3-3 for me m8
someone may reply to ur comment i got 0
I hate getting impossible matchups. I swear, I make very little mistakes. Even I can lose without making a mistake.
in the cr league challenge?
To be fair… I’m kinda a one trick bot… meaning I don’t Practice with other win conditions.
Yeah, my luck and skill sucks so much. Because I had zero practice.
I’ll give up CR if the April update isn’t worth looking foward too..
I just wanted to write a guide about this deck, since I used it and got 6×20 wins with it. I’ve been playing it for half a year and mastered it pretty well, but this one covers almost everything i know so great job!
I’ve been playing with this deck in classic challenges and I’ve gotten 9-10 wins. I’m always losing to golem decks with either double prince or baby dragon. How should I respond to these decks?
I used this deck long ago and i still use it!!!
very good deck this is.
Video is down, could you reupload?
