Giant Sparky – Bring The Fun Back!
Hey guys it’s Cow FTW here for my FIFTH guide and for this special occasion, I present to you this amazing Giant Sparky deck that is a great counter to the overpowered Elite Barbs and Double Prince Combo.
This deck allows you to farm easy victories. I speak from experience and I’m not an amazing player, this should tell you something!
Despite being outshined by the popular Giant Sparky Bait, in my opinion this decks is much better with its crazy good defense, plus it counters the Double Prince combo exceedingly well!
The Giant Sparky Deck
Despite not considering myself as a Giant Beatdown player, ⅘ of my guide have included this dude!
This guy rocking loads of heath for just a cheap 5 elixir is your main card for pushing, allowing you to get damage.
Due to his cheap cost, plop him down in front of any big counter push allowing you to deal defestating damage, making this dude your win condition.
This is should be your mentality while playing this, defend and destroy.
Though counter pushes are great, with Sparky (a great investment card) you’re also able to build up massive pushes while clogging up the lane at the same time!
The MVP of this deck, keeping your opponents on their toes, forcing them to pay attention to their placements or suffer Sparky best aspect of attack: Her slash damage.
Sparkynado is one of best defensive combos against ground assaults, blasting away almost ANY ground support troop with only a few exceptions!
Alone or behind a Giant, this card is DEADLY, bragging of the highest damage per shot in the game!
Be creative guys! This is the most versatile card in game so I’m not just going to sum it up with “just tornado Hogs to the king tower”!
Tornado is amazing with the many splash troops in this deck, allowing you to tornado everything together to get amazing value!
But it doesn’t stop their! Pair it with Sparky to pull troops that were meant to distract her next to your opponent’s tower to get 2 for 1 deal! I have won countless game with this strategy, because it really works!
Pull troops together offensively to get great value with just one Sparky blast or as simply stated before, activate your crown tower, this card provides tons of value in this deck.
People might call the Minion Horde the “Skill Horde” in higher arena, but not so much in Legendary Arena, because overleveled Minion Hordes are everywhere!
That’s why Baby Dragons here instead of Minion as this deck originally had. Baby Dragon gives a quick and easy way to roast and tank Minions, Bats, and Spear Goblins that are so often seen in this meta.
As well as a great barbecue, this Dragon is a great support for Giant-Sparky pushes, being more viable than Mega Minion because of his Splash damage.
The ideal defender loaded with DPS and Hit Points.
This dude behind a Giant and paired with a Baby Dragon is great combo because they cover each others weaknesses perfectly! When locked on the tower this dude can do work in just second, whipping out loads of damage!
Shooting enemies from affair this, She’s not the ideal Giant/Sparky support but is just so good at defence, as well as baiting your opponents Log, allowing your Goblin Gang to be able to that much stronger!
She is a great starting move, able to support from almost any place on your side of the map!
This value making machine when paired with Tornado creates phenomenal combo, as she snipes away at enemy troops.
These Green guys are great at dealing so much damage in a short amount of time, but are so vulnerable to spells.
But once their spells have been used elsewhere these guys dominate behind a Giant cleaning up other swarm cards with ease due to their DPS.
These guys also work wonders for bait out spells, allowing your Sparky or Princess to have control.
But more importantly than that, these guys provide are a great Elite Barbarian killer when place in the center of the map to dodge those prediction Logs.
A key aspect to your Giant pushes, clearing an easy path through cheap swarm cards.
As simple as a card with is, it can be devastating if you don’t have it in hand as you make that one push.
I would not clarify this deck as spell bait, however keeping track of when your opponents uses their spells can make a very big difference.
Princess in the back or Goblin Gang at the bridge are good starting moves as you attempt to scout out your opponents spells.
The real beauty of this deck is that you can take advantage of your opponents cheap spell depending on what it is.
When they have Log, they are much weaker to Sparky, allowing you to get great defensive value.
When they have Zap, they are much weaker to Princess and Goblin Gang, which will offer both Offensive and Defensive value!
If your opponent plays a glass cannon in the back, always play Sparky in the back as they are probably trying to set up a push, in which case Sparky can get massive value and you’ll have a great counterpush opportunity.
Even if they don’t place anything in front of that glass cannon, Sparky will still get value, and become a threat they must waste elixir on afterwards.
Try to get value as much as can even if it means taking a little damage.
Being a beatdown deck, this means you trade Tower Hp – -> Elixir to use in you monster push during double elixir.
Hopefully by now, you have gained the elixir advantage and are in a good position to snowball a massive push.
Against fellow tank decks, you’re going to want to wait for them to make their move, allowing you to get great value with Sparky-nado before going on the counter push.
Against other deck that don’t give great counter pushing opportunity, (X-bow, Mortar, Bait) it’s best that you slow roll a push from the back then to try to scrape up a counter push.
Golem Double Prince
Without a doubt, this deck is the most seen/overpowered deck in the current meta.
However, this deck can be a little problematic without a heavy spell.
Punishing them for placing an Elixir Collector is crucial in order to get damage and make sure they don’t get the Elixir advantage.
Giant + Mega Minion is a great combo as it forces them to do one of two thing: Use Prince/Dark Prince to defend against your Giant allowing your Mega Minion to chip away at it or use Baby Dragon/Mega Minion + Tornado which can be easy be countered with a well timed Zap, allowing your Mega Minion to win the battle!
Once they have place Golem, spam Goblin Gang at the bridge to bait out their Spells or force them to waste Elixir.
Sparky in same lane along with Baby Dragon + Tornado will decimate there push if they’re not careful.
You only Giant, Sparky, and Goblin Gang to tank so play wisely!
One of important tip in this matchup is save your Giant.
Giant is one of your only two good tanks for their X-bow, second being Sparky.
Goblin Gang is not worth using, only if they waste their Log. Do not play Princess reactively as it is only an immediate – 3 elixir trade due to X-bows long range
Sparky can cause quite the problem as X-bow is the only card in their deck that can take a blast from her! When paired with Giant and Baby Dragon, she has a clear path to victory with only Ice Spirit to reset her charge.
Sparky is also a good option in you are left without Giant as SparkNado will deal with X-bow and the distracting troops!
Definitely the hardest match up.
Your bond to take some damage, but the counter push is what will allow you to deal some damage. Sparky, Goblin Gang and Mega Minion are great counters Battle Ram, however, you must save Goblin Gang for their Bandit or else she’ll get way to much damage.
If you have to Zap their push, make sure you have Tornado to pull away their Inferno Dragon, resetting its charge.
Well that all guys! I hope you like this off meta but well rounded deck and have as much success as I have!
That’s all – CowFTW
Really good guide! 1 thing: i wouldn’t recommend beginning with a sparky
fact. i never do it unless I have tornado in my hand as well
yay sparjy got buffed
Guys, the strangest deck i’ve seen has to be Skarmy, mega minion, 3M, graveyard, miner, fireball, log and elixir collector. Please help understand the concept of this deck
ur second bro
another sparky fanatic?
Lord Zralox, SparkyIsLife, Sparknado FTW:
The three sparkyteers
nice deck but i dont have night witch so i will sub it for miner because the deck has minion horde and they both make a nice synergy. also 5th
technically, ur 3rd(3rd person/user to comment)
I would use e-wiz or musket instead of miner for that honestly. Maybe even a mini pekka?
How many guides have u written?
Hey lol games u might wanna use the mini pekka or musky instead cuz they too provide a lotta dps like the night witch although mini pekka is a better choice!
2nd no1 claimed
legendaries tell me about it
ikr, need SPARKY!!!!!!!!
actually, I don’t think anyone has ever said that before…
third no one claimed!
also a great deck and guide and i can use this deck
awww come on im late
could have claimed 4th
i didnt want it
Lol I wouldn’t have claimed it eother
3rd cuz no one claimed
hog ftw claimed
Hog FTW doesn’t mean it
4th nobody claimed
I use a night witch, giant, sparky similar to this one and both decks are very powerful! Nice guide I’ll definitely try this one out!
so i got a leggy chest out of a bttle (my first ever) then i opened it and got grave yard THAN right after that i opend a crown chest and got grave yard again. should i be happy? lol
Wow yea man GY level 2 is super strong
yea i use it in a hog yard deck
graveyard took some hard nerfs but it is still good when tanked for and they dont have the counters in cycle (the opponent)
Yea especially when paired with poison or freeze, and it kinda got buffed the last update
I get so satisfied after taking a tower with ice golem + graveyard after my opponent throws a golem in the back
GY isn’t very level dependent. It still does massive dmg no matter the level.
A level 2 GY doesn’t get countered well by skarmy, ice wizard, witch, night witch etc, level 2 graveyard is a lot better than level 1
Graveyard level two is really good man. I am currently using a Giant Graveyard deck which allowed my to push back up to Hog Mountain.
GL m8 on pushing! But once u get to around mid hog mnt, you’ll feel the pain of max rg and e barbs 🙁
dont forget the dreaded maxed minion hordes
…when you realize your lvl 10 arrows don’t kill them
That’s my arrows XD
I laugh at that my deck hard counters those noobs anyway 🙂 #hardcounterthenoobs
I currently run pekka graveyard with lvl 1 graveyard, it’s doing fine, but I really want to get my graveyard and ice wiz to lvl 2
Cool guide Lolman, but these gifs… um… can we stay on classic screenshots? + for the idea
Gifs > screenshots
But gifs should be an video, not photos compilation since it looks bad. I don’t even know what I just saw after that gifs
I mean it was still a bit better than still photos
Not really imo.
Maybe if these would be a bit slower, then okay
Yea it’s simple math
I just attached the screenshots. XD Gifs are all Will
sparky decks are fun to read GJ lolman
Sparky’s use rate is still low after her buff, that damage nerf is too big, should be 5% only
Not really. Sparky is a card that can’t be meta without being OP imo.
hey roflmaoman! love this deck..i used golem night witch on ladder and wanted a change..THIS IS SO FUN!! ure awesome!!
Ill use this deck once i get nw.This deck looks really good.
What about a log bait user that uses arrows instead of log(me). If u bait my arrows I can use princess or fireball(I use fireball instead of rocket) to get rid of minions on inferno tower. Yeah this is specific to me¯_(ツ)_/¯
You are so special we dont even need to worry about that matchup
Lolman is 38-2 with the deck. Doesn’t mention he can do 38-2 with any deck.
Yup I am better than him. I can do 38-3, which is more than 38-2
Lolman vs Will bo3?
We don’t need the last match
Yeah will lets go m 7+1
wat? xD that’s not better
I have a question: What do you have to do to become a mod? Also, what privileges do you get?
Ultimate, I know what you’re gonna say.
‘Banning people who wish to inquire into the secret world of moderators.’
But on a serious note, I would like to know 🙂
Will, can you post my guide?
What’s it about?
In what? custom tournaments? -_-
and 2 12 win ccs and one 12 win gc lmao
STOP POSTING SPARKY DECKS DON’T MAKE HER META PLZ (because I have no clue how to deal with it properly(around 4100 cups meh))
really? ice spirit/zap + knight/hard hitter should do the job
Knight does the job alone becuase of its high HP. I think Skeletons do the job too
I don’t run them
sparky shouldn’t be hard to counter if you have the skill to get to 4100 trophies..
it IS hard
Lol just cuz u don’t want to see sparky dex posted it doesn’t mean other people want to see sparky decks xD
I think nobody REALLY knows how to counter her (like ebarbs at first)
Me, as a pro pekka user, it doesn’t work
nononono, much harder than that
I said rocket too
ZAAAP! (electro wizard voice)
For me It is always harder that placing just an ewiz…. He insta-dies
sparky is hard to deal with, I feel you. but sparky really deserves to be meta .
Just run a rocket and you good mate. If you have like rocket, arrows and inferno tower that just about hard counters this deck. Ie- Log bait with arrows. XD
noooooooo not a chief pat rocket…. WHY’D YOU TELL ME TO USE IT????
Check out electrify’s giant sparky pump deck. 3.3 elixir. Once he got 3 giants and 4 sparkies up. But there’s like no air dfense. Here’s the deck:
And that’s it!
I did see that but the problem is that he played it in the first few matches not the last 3 like surg so he faced so many noobs. This is why I watch surg lol.
only in like the blind copy deck things does surg starts from 0 wins in gc
If they put Hound in back you just rush Giant Sparky at bridge.
It’s ok, tornado is really defensive and bats + ice spirit will take out any flying unit
Its annoying when they spell tho
You have to apply counter pressure to make them think about how much they want to commit
I don’t have zap, what should I replace with it?
Zap is legendary, it is normal if you dont have it
replace it with log, log is more common
Yeah i have a lvl 13 log which is nice. Trying out the deck now!
no problem! happy to help, someday you can get zap through legendary chest
thx m8! Hoping I’ll get a zap in my clan chest.
I would say golem, golem is pretty good. Or maybe bigfoot? bigfoot i heard is good
I will try golem. Will do!
Giant Skelly would work pretty well.
Sure, I will try that. Thx! 🙂
Solid tips by Zigge hahaha
replace it with log
Really?! You don’t have a zap?
OMG ZAP SUCKS YOU NEED TO USE THE NEWSET LEGENDARY CARD OMG THE SPEARGOLEM IS SO OVERPOWERED THE GOBLINS THROW GOLEMS OMG NEW UPDATE HCOCHO
lol wtf you high bro?
make a sparky deck that can work with mega knight pekka golem etc
I think Sparky is too expensive of a support card to work with bigger tank pushes.
1. Let’s be friends on cr
2. Send your player tags
3. This deck looks interesting but does it work on ladder? Will it be able to get me to 4900?
I love how you upvote your own comment
1. Sry, no
2. No, why. Don’t want u to stalk me.
3. Yes. Idk abt 4900.
My pb. Is currently 4600 and lol I wanted to practice decks with people…
i just realized the will week is over
OH YEAH!!! after a month the deck of the week is finally updated
Last deck of the week was one of mine too :’D
Save some fame for us…
My coined term is in effect awesome
Your term? And why did u call it ‘will week’?
Can u send the friend invite again? It might have expired
do u have 3236 trophies
Wanna get more friends
are you in firingerange 3? if so im clash links
oh! yeah i’m in fr3
I´ll add you 😉
How r these card lvls for 3268 trophies?
Not too bad, should be a bit higher considering your common levels and you can use your lavahound and balloon to push a lot higher too I think
What should be higher- my trophies or my other card levels?
I like lavaloon and am decent at it, might try it out. Currently using this deck on ladder/tourneys:
Hog, Knight, Gobs, E-wiz, Ice Spirit, Inferno Tower, Fireball, Zap
With your card levels you might want to try out mortar siege because they’re at a pretty decent level. Mortar decks are also easy to level up.
hmmmm…i like mortar rocket. my username used to be mortar rocket ftw
Better post my latest Mortar Cycle deck 😉
Looks good enough for me imo lavaloon is easier to push with than hog, with your levels a decent enough deck should be.
Lavahound, loon, lightning ((level 4 while your fireball is 6 so)), arrows, minions, mega minion, skarmy or gang- Either works both will get zapped in ladder with your levels, tombstone or you can make this either skarmy or gang as well- whichever you didn’t pick in the previous slot.
I’m jealous, I really want to be good with lavaloon but I always screw up
I have his card levels except 1 level higher (all rarities except legendary) in Challenger 1
What arena/league are you in lolman?
better than mine, mine are only slightly higher and im at 3300-3400 mark
not too shabby!
tbh my rare’s r better and im at 2600…. but my epics and commons stand no chance (don’t have any legendaries 🙁 )
You don’t have a legendary at 2600? :/
My second didn’t have any till 3000 trophies (and got my first in shop)
what really???? I had lava hound and inferno dragon when I was in arena 6
and then my main got a lava hound in arena 5 but my 2nd account didnt get a legendary until arena, which was night witch when it was still literally op af
i didnt get a leggy untill 3100
lmao that was 6 mnths ago
Add me guys 😉
ok sure thing
Ooohh. looks like fun
I played this deck for three and half weeks but i use arrows instead night witch. Nice guide
wut about zap ??? (did you include zap AND arrows)
Yes but i switch arrows for NW no more bait
This deck is good and all but how to stop graveyard? It’s hard as graveyard decks are cheap.
use princess behind king tower or use baby dragon, problem solved. graveyard decks aren’t used much anyway
Sorry I am 3 months late but I guess you just have to use a bunch of offensive tornadoes to shut down any support, keep the pressure going, or tornado the ice golem out of princess tower reach so your princess tower locks on to the skeletons and use your princess to aid and zap if necessary. I play GY a lot so I understand a lot about it…, they shouldn’t play a GY unless they have lots of elixir
First after repost! Also, it says Lolman made this guide, I want credit!
Indeed. I will contact you today
Got it! Just replied
get bitcoin gift card I got it too and it is sooooo worth it!! just kidding nice guide and congrats
2nd after repost
Anyone on PUBG mobile?
I’m done with that game. Stopped a few months ago.
Dude. It was RELEASED on March 19th.
you seem so defensive of the game, it isnt even that excititng
Seriously bro? It’s so damn awesome! If you don’t like it then you don’t like FPS or TPS takes, right?
that game is dead
Are you effing kidding me? It’s played more than CR! PUBG and Fortnite are he games of the moment, more alive than CR! CR is the one that’s dead now!
fortnite is played more than any game right now dude check twitch or youtube
Fortnite and PUBG are almost equally played. Since Fortnite is free, people feel it is played more but that’s not the case.
I play fortnite.
On mac. It’s great.
I don’t have a Mac. Too expensive.
do fortnite on a widnows PC
I can’t bro. Parents won’t let me.
Why? So you are allowed to do it on a Mac but not windows? Why?
isn’t that only available in China(or you could get a Chinese account)? and I would rather play on pc(PUBG or fortnite) because I have played something extremely similar and the graphics, frame rate and whatnot sucks
Nope. Globally released on March 19th. But you do need Android 5.1 or above, and atleast 2 gigs of RAM.
rip my phone isn’t that good
Neither is mine, so I use the…..PC
Better play RoS in mobile
Why play PUBG in mobile if you can play it on PC ¯_(ツ)_/¯
A deck I love, as you can tell by my name. 😀 Love the composition
3rd after repost
new poll : what games do you play?
I play Clash Royale, CoC, and Fortnite. Like anyone else, really.
Clash Royale Warframe and some other single player games
CR, COC sometimes, Nintendo(yes I still play wii u I don’t have money for switch nor 3ds) games such as BOTW, used to play minecraft, tried roblox, sometimes play those .io games, I don’t play battle royale styled games much cause I suck
Same, I am absolute garbage at shooter games, I play Nintendo too, but mostly mario
mario kart, 3d world, or 2d mario?
I have all 3, plus a few more
CR, a bunch of other mobile games, PS3 (poor me), and ToS (poor me)
ps3 isnt bad i have a ps3 and ps4,
PUBG, NFs, PES sometimes, GoW, and a little bit of Far Cry.
Clash Royale, clash of clans, super smash bros, and a bunch of other Nintendo games
CR,Fortnite,SWBFT,Destiny,bunch other steam games
Spot on about the CR one! Same for me!
I started to get bored of CR as I keep encountering the same old overleveled cancer on ladder (man I wish sc will add arena caps to stop overleveling)
Same dood. But, at the same time, here’s all teh countahs:
Overlevelled Horde: Fireball, Princess, Baby D, Exe
Overlevelled eBarbs: Knight+Ice Spirit, Lvl 9 Rocket, Mini P+Goblins
Overlevelled RG: Inferno T, Inferno D, P.E.K.K.A (da best!)
YOU ARE SAYING THIS??!!!!! YOU?!!! WHAT?!!! THE BIGGEST CR SUPER ULTIMATE PLATINUM FAN IS SAYING THIS?!!!! WHOAH!!!!
How can YOU (note emphasis) be bored by CR?
I just keep encountering the same old crap on ladder (maxed cancer users like you)
XD Guess it’s time to try a new game for you then!
I did have one, super smash bros
No sarcastic reply to that. Mario=respect of the highest magnitude!
Are you a *drumroll* POLLBOT?
OH MY GOD JUST LEAVE ME ALONE AND LET ME DO POLLS.
Okie dokie pollbot.
*exaggerated, comical, insane expression*
Clash Royale, Mario Kart Wii (BAM Shock Dodge!), Pokemon, and Sly Cooper
MARIO KART YES IM NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO LIKES MARIO GAMES
a lot of people like mario games
not many people my age (13 years old)
then do you play ps4 or pc or something
Ppl my age tend to play a crap ton of fortnite
just look at my leadership class…
I like Super Mario 64….
*quietly cries in a corner*
no need to cry
That is a great game, such a classic (tho I never had a Nintendo 64)
I am a hardcore fan of Mario (look at my profile pic for proof)
if you can afford it then switch to mario kart 8 or 8 deluxe, so much better
YES THANK YOU, this deck looks amazing, and I’ll definitely try it cuz my sparky is lvl 3, thanks.
I love miner decks, but next time just post a link, that way it is more convenient for everybody. GG
4th after repost no one claimed!
also seems nice deck,gonna try it for sure 🙂
YEEEEEEEEEEE SPARKY IS BACK BOI!!!
Seems cool. Not sure about Princess in here.
boii my sparky level one 🙁
Any suggestions for replacement of princess? I honestly need that card so much for so many decks!
Dart goblin, magic archer, or ice wiz could work
I put minions in and the deck seems to work, but I really like ice wiz as a defensive card so I might put that in
