Card Breakdowns:

Clash Royale MinerMiner: This dude with a shovel is AMAZING when it comes to tanking for Balloon!

Miner can also be used for a bit of chip damage to clear the path for Lumberjack to tear the final health off the tower.

Use with Poison to create an alternative push to end your opponent.

Replacement: Goblin Barrel

Clash Royale LumberjackLumberjack: Your support troop for your Balloon.

Make sure when you place, the Lumberjack it is ahead of the Balloon and can kill any ground troops your opponent may deploy.

Overall I think it is very underrated and your opponent won’t expect it.

Plus, make sure your push has enough troops to take advantage of the Rage deployed at death!

No subs for this card except for Mini P.E.K.K.A, but not recommended.

Clash Royale BalloonBalloon: Your main win condition.

This badass Bomber in a balloon is frickin crazy when it comes to tower damage.

Protect your Balloon with a Lumberjack/Miner, and for Inferno Dragon, deploy your E-Wiz.

Clash Royale Ice SpiritIce Spirit: One of the best Commons in the game.

Use it for Minion Horde, Skarmy, and any other swarm when your E-Wiz is not in hand.

Can also be used to freeze troops like Hog Rider.

Clash Royale PoisonPoison: Undoubtedly one of the best spells in the game right now.


Use for Miner Poison, and if your Balloon reaches their tower.


Advisable subs include: Arrows

Clash Royale Electro WizardElectro Wizard: Your secondary support card.

Use for Inferno Dragon or other counters to your Balloon.

Recommended placement is behind your Balloon.

Subs: Ice Wizard, but weak against Inferno Dragon.

Clash Royale BatsBats: Your low-health dudes.


These dark flying monsters will bite your opponent’s troops to the ground.

Use these guys for defense, or to chip some damage off with your friendly neighborhood Miner.

Clash Royale Inferno DragonInferno Dragon: A true beast in the meta.

Must use to melt tanks such as Golem, or P.E.K.K.A.

If Minion Horde is used alongside a tank, then Poison/Arrows it.

You can murder your opponent’s cards and BM him and have fun!

In-Game Strategies

Regular Elixir

Don’t automatically jump to your Balloon and Lumberjack and try to take your opponent by surprise.

In fact, just play casually and try to keep your Balloon hidden in your hand. Any pushes your opponent tries to make, your mini tanks should take them out.

Double Elixir


Rush your opponent with the Lumberjack with the Balloon+Miner+Poison. You should easily take out the tower.

If he counterpushes, cycle into your Lumberjack and your Inferno and stop his push in his tracks.


This deck should really take their tower down before this happens.

If he plays his X-Bow or Mortar, rush with your Lumberjack and quickly counterpush.

If his push seems unstoppable, rush the opposite lane and force it into the race for the tower.

Deck Matchups

Clash Royale Goblin GangLog/Zap Bait: 

Use Poison and Electro WIzard’s zap capability to defend both sides at the same time.

You can eradicate Princesses and G-Gang by Poisoning the Bridge in order to kill them when they target your tower.

Minion Horde will destroy your tower if placed on the other lane, so place your E-Wiz on the center to pull some toward it and save your tower some it.

Clash Royale GolemGolem Beatdown

Again, not much of an issue.

For Night Witch and/or Witch behind, use your E-Wiz+Inferno Dragon to mop them up, and your Inferno will murder and burn the Golem to ashes as it screams! Or moans, if Golems can’t scream.

Clash Royale X-BowX-Bow Siege

Lumberjack rush with E-Wiz behind should clean that up rather effectively.

If your Lumberjack fails to force the X-Bow to lock onto it, your E-Wiz will do it anyway.

Clash Royale Hog RiderHog Cycle

Lumberjack+E-Wiz to clean up swarms and deny the Hog a hit onto your tower.

Not very difficult to work out if done properly.

Clash Royale BalloonLumberLoon

This one can be hard.

If Mega Minion-Balloon-Hound push, then place Bats onto the Balloon to kill it and use your INFERNO DRAGON (Very Important) to melt both tanks if Bats not in cycle.

For Mega Minion use E-Wiz.

Phew!! That’s it for this deck guys, and comment below for suggestions on how to make future decks more enjoyable!

Thanks once again,

Mega Knight FTW! 🙂
