Revamped Three Musketeers Deck for The New Meta!

Hey guys this is TheMoonBean69 here with my first ever guide on CRA (hopefully).

So these recent balance changes have dropped the Night Witch in favor of Mini P.E.K.K.A and Ice Wizard.

My previous deck contained the Night Witch, but in experimenting in the Legendary Challenge, I found that the Ice Wizard and Mini P.E.K.K.A combo was stronger and more effective at dealing with swarms.

This deck did get me to 12 wins in the Legendary Challenge as well as a Grand Challenge. Without further ado let’s hop into the cards.

Cards Breakdown

Clash Royale Three MusketeersThree Musketeers– What do I have to say about these ladies? Powerful and versatile both on offense and defense. My favorite win condition and hands down one of the stronger cards at the moment. Just don’t use them when you don’t have a good elixir advantage, but other than that just keep on cycling these ladies to take easy towers.

{Swapped out for- Nothing}

Clash Royale elixir collectorElixir Pump– The Three Musketeer best friend and another great value card for many reasons. It can act as a spell bait allowing you to strike out with your musketeers and quickly take or deal massive damage to a tower. Play as a starting hand or when you have an elixir advantage.

{Swapped out for- possibly another bulding}

Clash Royale Ice WizardIce Wizard– My first legendary, this card still hold a lot in my hear. Although before this buff, this card was wildly underpowered, now it is one of the strongest defensive options and paired with the musketeers can clear out swarms and make the musketeer’s lives easier.

{Swapped out for- Ice spirit if wanting a cheaper overall deck}

Clash Royale The LogThe Log– My 2nd favorite spell and a great utility card, The Log can clear out swarms allowing your musketeers to hammer down that tower. Very helpful for stopping charges and just an overall great card.

{Swapped out for- Zap would be the best choice but arrows can work although there is no way to stop charge attacks}

Clash Royale Ice GolemIce Golem– My first level 8 rare and although this little buddy has fallen out of the arena, it is slowly coming back with more and more decks utilizing this little golem. Use to support your musketeer pushes and to kite enemies to the other side of the arena.

{Swapped out for- Knight but would not recommend.}

Clash Royale Mini P.E.K.K.AMini P.E.K.K.A- This baby P.E.K.K.A has seen its use in the eaerlier stages of the Arenas, but quickly becomes obsolete due to stronger and cheaper counter cards. This buff has allowed this card to shine again and just destroy hogs and golem pushes.

{Swapped out for- Nothing except maybe a musketeer but not recommended.}

Clash Royale BatsBats- One of the most useless cards, these were Air Larrys but could not keep up with the DPS they needed. Now that a 5th bat has joined the ranks, this cards can become one of the best cycle cards.

{Swapped out for- Minions/Skeletons/Goblin Gang, etc

Clash Royale MinerMiner- A very nice chip card, this card can wreak havoc on your opponent’s elixir pumps and greatly support your musketeers pushes. Not a primary win but rather secondary win condition.

{Swapped out for- Hog}

Now that the cards are out of the way, let’s get into the gameplan and matchups!

General Gameplan

3:00-2:00

Ideal starting hand is pump with Mini P.E.K.K.A, Ice Wizard and Miner.

Drop pump at full elixir and be prepared to defend with a Mini P.E.K.K.A.

Keep defending their pushes and hold off on the musketeers unless they use a spell to destroy your pump.

2:00-1:00

This is when you should have one pump down, preparing to get a 2nd one down soon.

Do not worry if your tower has less than 1500 hitpoints remaining, keep concentrating on defending and making positive elixir trades.

Start to make miner pushes and/or drop three musketeers if you feel confident.

Double Elixir Time

This is where you just go ham.

Split Three Musketeers and support with Ice Golem, Bats, Miner and Mini P.E.K.K.A. Continually cycle until you have taken a tower or severely crippled it.

If the tower is within log and miner range, stop going on offense and instead defend.

Your opponent, out of desperation, is most likely going to throw cards down hoping to take a tower, make sure he cannot get through your defenses.

Matchups

Clash Royale GolemGolem– This shouldn’t be a problem as long as you make positive elixir trades and use Mini P.E.K.K.A to defend. Use Ice Golem to soak up damage while Bats cleanup. Should not be too hard of a matchup

 

Clash Royale Lava HoundLava Hound– This might be a bit troublesome if they continually lightning/fireball your musketeers. Bats are prone to zap/arrows and support units can easily kill the bats. Overall not a very good match up unless they do not use spells on your musketeers.

 

Clash Royale P.E.K.K.AP.E.K.K.A– Another simple match up, simply use Ice Wizard to slow down the troops and Bats to clean up. If they have support units, use Ice Golem to soak up damage and Mini P.E.K.K.A to finish the supports off.

 

Clash Royale GiantGiant- Not much needs to be said, pretty much same game plan as Golem or P.E.K.K.A

 

 

Clash Royale Hog RiderHog- Annoying match up but if you place your Mini P.E.K.K.A perfectly, will not be able to get any hits on the tower. Make sure to never use Mini P.E.K.K.A on offense if they have a hog and keep it for defense.

 

Clash Royale Royal GiantRG- Use Mini P.E.K.K.A for RG use Ice Golem to soak up support units and use Bats to clean up

 

Clash Royale GraveyardGraveyard- Use Ice Golem to tank and Bats t deal with the Graveyard. If they poison, immediately place Ice Wizard to clean up remaining skellies.
