Lava Flying Machine Deck – Frisk Style!
Howdy, Clashers! This is Frisk Dreemurr, coming back to guide writing with a brand new, Frisk-style Lava Flying Machine deck!
The creation of this deck doesn’t really date too far back in time… In fact, it’s about 2 days old!
I had gotten bored one day from playing too much ladder (I had lost about 100 trophies and won 300 in total), and decided to go into Challenges for a while! Seeing that I had the Flying Machine (I won it from the challenge), I upgraded it as much as I could, built a deck with it, and headed straight into battle! The results were indeed good ones. 10 wins Grand Challenge and two 12 win Classic Challenges!
Whoops, enough yapping and chatting, let’s get to the point of this whole article!
Though I seriously dislike this card, I’ll make an exception this time around.
When paired with Balloon, it becomes so annoying to deal with, because now Lava Hound isn’t a card to be ignored!
To ignore a Lava Hound and her pups is just like ignoring a Mini P.E.K.K.A, so don’t do that…
Anyway, she’ll be your main flying tank. Super beefy when level 3 and above. She splits in to 6 (or is it 8?) Lava Pups that can deal hundreds of damage by themselves. Will tank for other units, especially Flying Machine.
Recently featured in its own Draft Challenge, the Flying Machine is a 4 elixir Rare card that can be found in Jungle Arena and above.
Deals a decent amount of damage per shot, but is EXTREMELY fragile.
So fragile, that it dies to Fireball and is taken down by other air targeting troops very easily. Should be protected if you want to build a push with it.
The good news: It has the longest range of all Glass Cannons, proving to be helpful when playing Beatdown decks with it (you all know why).
With a boastful laugh, the Bandit dashes to her opponents, dealing a good amount of damage.
She can’t be hit while dashing, making her perfect for bypassing troops that can knock her out in just a few hits.
Just remember, though: She is easily stopped (even when about to dash) with the right timing, so don’t go sending her alone.
This trio of mean, green, stabbing machines are weak, but can deal 600 damage or more if left without an answer.
They can wipe out many troops in just a few quick shanks, making them a cheap alternative to popular choices.
The best part is, Goblins don’t die to Zap (but they do to The Log) unless it is one level higher.
With the power of 3 Minions, the Mega Minion is to be feared in the skies and on land.
Powerful enough to take out most non-tanks on its own.
Isn’t much of a threat when by itself, but behind a tank, it becomes an issue that must be dealt with.
Like all Glass Cannons, it is fragile.
Hungers for destruction, thirsts for annihilation, and longs for a well loaded plate of pancakes.
The Mini P.E.K.K.A will be one of your two tank killers. Unlike his (yes, it is male) mother, he is weaker but moves a lot faster.
Watch out, though. He is easily distracted by just about anything in his range of sight. He will follow it once he sees it.
Though this icy chill-caster is too cold, he has a handlebar mustache that’s too hot for T.V.
Slows down anything that he targets with his ice bolts, mitigating hundreds, maybe thousands of damage while defending troops go to work.
Just be careful when using him, because he’s your only form of splash damage.
Can assume an offensive role once successfully defending, especially if you manage to deploy 2 or more when pushing.
Ah, good ol’ Inferno Dragon. The flying Inferno Tower of doom.
He will serve as a tank shredder (along with Mini P.E.K.K.A, if you can get him down on the field as well), though he must be assisted in some way, because a simple ZAP or Lightning can reset its targeting and leave it vulnerable for destruction.
Don’t even try sending this dude on offense… unless you’re new to the game (which I’m sure 85% of you reading this are not).
Play this deck like you would play a normal control deck. Defend, then counterpush.
Try to get a good idea of what kind of deck your opponent has based upon the first few cards he drops to counter your troops.
For example: If he drops, say… a Mega Minion to counter your Mini P.E.K.K.A, chances are he uses the Beatdown archetype.
In theory, you’ll be able to defend any push that comes your way nicely. It will only be a matter of time before you can start to mow down his tower!!!
Now’s the perfect time to deploy big momma (Lava Hound)!
Place her in the bottom right/left corner of your side, and prepare the troops for ultimate destruction!
Here’s an important thing to keep in mind when building your push: spread your troops out a bit so as to reduce the effectiveness of Fireball and other splash dealers.
What I like about this deck is its ability to play like Bridge Spam, with the majority of the cards not costing more than 5 elixir!
You’ll be able to construct MONSTROUS pushes that will be able to overpower ANY defense, including swarms, which this deck is slightly vulnerable to.
Ciao, Inferno Tower! ¡Hasta la vista, Electro Wizard! Bon Voyage, Minion Horde! Good riddance, Wizard!!
Just remember though, it’s important not to get TOO cocky.
The enemy can easily go all out on the other lane and catch you off guard. Make sure to keep an eye on both sides!!!
Shouldn’t be much of a bid deal, if the opponent doesn’t carry Lightning. Inferno Dragon for the Hound (or Balloon, whatever you deem as priority), and the rest for whatever follows behind.
Ice Wizard will be an important factor for survival. Be sure to save him for whatever push comes your way!
Inferno Dragon for the Golem, Mini P.E.K.K.A for the ground supports, Mega Minion/Flying Machine for any air supports, and Ice Wizard to slow it all down.
Like with Lava Hound, watch out for Lightning!
Bait: You’re going to struggle quite a bit with this one.
Classic Bait will be a big problem, given most of the troops in this deck are point damage. Just defend the best you can.
Once you’re able to build up your gigantic push, though…even their crummy Inferno Tower won’t help!
Won’t be a big problem for you. Just make sure their Miner doesn’t get too many strikes off.
If swarms show up, you’ll have to try and defend the best you can.
By far, the easiest matchup for you.
This deck might not have any buildings, but you have two powerful Hog Killers that can get the job done.
Always remember to have Ice Wizard ready, and don’t fall behind on their cycle!
piece of cake. Just be prepared for that unexpected Rage spell.
Well, this is it! That was the end of my 4th deck guide! I’m sure that you’ll have fun using this homemade deck made by me, the GREAT FRISK!
WHERE ARE SPELLS
the return of nahu perez
First reply no one claimed XDDDDDDDD
Minion horde? counter??
Waiting for OP’s answer
Could u post my deeeck
Will did u finish editing my deck? Is it gonna be published in the near future?
I got your email buddy! I will check it out asap!
Check the Drafts in the WordPress plz!
Yeah…this deck doesn’t counter counters well.
what’s your deck called?
Sparky Zap Bait Cycle- Shockingly Good!
I have told Will about it
He knows. All good 😀
Zigge could u check with will about my deck..i’ve been waiting like a week 😀
Frisk’s decks are too frisky
It’s frisk after all
Make a word out of the first letters of these 8 cards! The letters are all scrambled up 😉 Good luck! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/86de69062fd9111bad148f0f205b912649d45a4fa7412d0625323f9dfd3658c5.png
I’ll do more of these soon 😉
does for example Dart Goblin count as ‘D’ and ‘G’ or just ‘D’?
Same with Dark Prince and Night Witch right?
Yes. FIRST letter of card.
I would pin this but I already pinned my own more important (sorry) comment :p
Ah it’s ok
Btw did u figure out the word? 😛
no, I was away eating, gonna do it now 🙂
Did u get a Subway Sandwich? The Meatball Marinara is GOOOOOOOD!
No I was not haha
Good luck 🙂
This is some highly ‘advanced’ stuff
Damn it, u figured it out 🙁
haha, good one.
‘With the power of 3 Minions, the Mega Minion is to be feared in the skies and on land.’
Minions are probably stronger than Mega Minion in terms of DPS, but Mega Minion has more health than 3 minions. I like Minions more than Mega Minion anyways.
‘Ciao, Inferno Tower! ¡Hasta la vista, Electro Wizard! Bon Voyage, Minion Horde! Good riddance, Wizard!!’
I’m sorry frisk but none of this is true xD
Then plz explain why.
Inferno Tower: There’s only one good swarmy distraction, as well as the deck not having E-Wiz, Zap, or Lightning, at least one of which would be very helpful in a Lava Hound deck. Or to hell with it, with any beatdown deck.
Minion Horde: The only splash unit in this deck is Ice Wizard, and it’s not efficient to shut down Hordes quick enough. The Horde will still shred the Hound. Flying Machine two-shots Minions. Mega Minion and Inferno Dragon are trash against Horde.
I guess Wizard and E-Wiz could be stopped well enough xD (sorry)
Well maybe e wiz is easy to get rid of but there’s no strong minion horde counter xD
Why do my decks always receive bad criticism
No no no your decks are not bad, there’s just really interesting and very off meta. That’s what I like about your decks! 🙂
“Thats what I like…” All you’ve said are negative comments
It’s just that I find your decks are a little strange
What?? I can’t say his decks are strange? -_-
They might be strange but it doesn’t mean the deck doesn’t work
you don’t exactly have to say that…
change it to say they are “unique” its sounds better and actually sounds like a compliment
Either you use too many spells or too few (none). We’re just
trying to help you improve your deck building!
Dude you decks are beast! I love ’em and use em. Why else would they be posted?
I wish my deck got posted!
Come on frisk everyone hated my ‘Overrated Cards’ post as well…
What I think about this deck:
1) If you’re a determined attacker, your opponent is in for a bad time.
2) Even if you’re a determined defender, if you meet Three Musketeers… you’d be dead where you stand. 😛 (Sorry, it’s just that I happen to be a 3M player)
Hey you haven’t been here in a few months. Welcome back 🙂
Thanks. I didn’t have time to read CRA let alone write guides for my own decks 🙁
Hope u have time to write some guides! 😀 Have u written a guide b4?
Yup, I wrote the first 3M Ram guide in CRA but it was deleted and replaced with the night witch version 🙁 I’m in the middle of another MK 3M guide but I’m too lazy to finish.
Bcuz they’re off-meta and people think if something is off-meta it’s bad, i love the decks and guides btw
I never said if something is off-meta it’s bad -_-
I wasn’t talking about you
Bcuz they are off mata but i think the ice wiz inferno d combo is cool b/c the ice wiz splash protects inferno d from swarm and the slow allows the inferno d to charge enough
Just a suggestion- please don’t take offense!
What website is that?
he is sorry frisk
(he is not sorry)
‘Don’t even try sending this dude on offense… unless you’re new to the game (which I’m sure 85% of you reading this are not).’
One time I had a lone ID which was nearly dead and my opponent laughed, then I froze and took the tower 🙂 Jokes on him!
I’m being honest. Lying would be even worse.
Don’t take it too hard…we’re just trying to improve your decks so u can be an even better player..
But I’m currently in League 1 sitting at 4134 trophies, using my 0 air defense deck. My highest trophies are 4210 at the moment. You don’t call that being a good player? HELL, I’ve beaten Lava Hound numerous occasions, along with Golem Beatdown, Hog, Miner, Graveyard, even HUT SPAM FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! Sorry for saying this but F*** OFF
CALM DOWN FOR FK’S SAKE! I’M NOT TRYING TO START A FKING WAR!!!
Go fk your sht to someone else instead!! What’s this fking nonsense targeted at me??
Fking hell…this guy…xD
Ok. Lemme get this straight. This deck might work for you but it could be made even better with a rework so the deck synergizes better. Telling me to ‘fk off’ is just bullshit cuz I was just making a suggestion. Don’t just stick to what you think, learn to accept others’ views. Everybody has their own thinking, and you’re not accepting other people and just shutting down and raging at other people because they want to help you. So yeah, stop just blocking off my choices, cuz we’re just trying to help here. CRA is one community, we are meant to be working together to help each other. Just like Zigge said: ‘It’s better to tell the truth than lie about something which you don’t think is true.’ Would you want us lying about something and saying something is good when there is something which needs to be improved? Everyone has to accept everybody’s views or else everyone here in CRA will hate each other. This is not how the community works.
I made a few changes to the deck to better suit my playstyle. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4bb3948cb9c6f7ea477024198538a9f801437058edf969195d89c64dd575c33a.jpg
ARROWS not zap! XDDDDDD
Why the Guards?
Why not the guards?
How does it synergize w/ the deck?
How does gob gang synergize with lavaloon?
It’s arrow/zap bait for the pups
Guards survive spells so that’s why I put it since bats and flying machine die realy quickly
But my pt abt the gob gang is true isn’t it
True enough but usually i dont even zap the pups
Well arrows yes you would arrow pups. I luv arrows.
i would say arrows are better than log/zap, but in hog decks zap is the best imo
Log works well too cuz it kills Gob Gang.
But it has to be predictive otherwise it’s too slow
Well all logs are played predictive w/ hog
In hog dex
Well u gotta consider elixir
Arrows is like Log+Zap combined. Kills all the stuff log kills and kills all the stuff zap kills
Arrows do more damage than a log too
Not enough to change major interactions tho.
None actually, only 3 damage difference
xD sooo much dmg difference
xD, still. every damage counts 😉
What about somthing called… STUN!
oh yeah xD
Nooooooooo < yes!
Pups do a lot of dmg tho. Especially if cloned
SPELLING ERROR ALERT!!!
One l is enough to end the world
All caps alert!!!
Guards! Now! Guard the lava hound, she needs to have her baby pups, but she is dying! Guards! Help her!
How do u counter the Hog?
I guess it will do, but it’s not the best.
It only get’s one hit….mini pekka is amazing against hog wot?
If u place Mini Pekka in the exact middle of the lane, the same distance from the princess tower and the bridge start, the Hog gets shut down (no swings!) It’s because the Hog gets blocked a split second by the MP.
Watch at 1:21 of this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cH6bTpKG2mI
Sorry it’s in Mandarin xD
lol i can understand mandarin
oh right you’re chinese
bro how will you counter a lavaloon inferno?
Plenty of air counters. Flying machine can hit from range and mega minion doesnt die to any spell less that 6 elixir. You can aso rush the other lane so they have less elixir for offense.
but inferno will wreck everything main thing is to distract it
Why tf would you let a push build up like that. If you play smart at all it shouldnt be too bad
good idea bro
@disqus_dovUxrdvZ4:disqus okay, time for some constructive criticism,
I’m not saying you can’t make an off-META deck, but meta decks are META for a reason, and that’s because they are simply the META:
These are the best decks that you can use right now and that’s why they’re are being used. An off-META doesn’t have to be bad, but you have to count with it not working as well as the META decks, because if it did, it would be a META deck. Onto your specific deck.
At a glance this deck looks like just a big mess of cards, but taking a deeper look into it I can see that with one specific card it would bring together a lot of the deck; Miner. A Miner would provide this deck with an alternate playstyle – Control Chip. Miner is a great, if not the best tank for Bandit and Goblins which are both in this deck, and the Lava Hound has great synergy with Miner.
However there are still some awkward choices in this deck that make me wonder whether they’re optimal for a Lava Hound deck. Specifically Ice Wizard and Mini P.E.K.K.A. Since you already have Bandit as a mini tank and Inferno Dragon for damage Mini P.E.K.K.A doesn’t make much sense in here. Ice Wizard is just a weird card in a Lava Hound deck, because it doesn’t fly which is what Lava Hound decks need the most. It also doesn’t have any particular synergy with Miner and I don’t feel like you need better defense than you already have.
My final replacement suggestions:
Ice Wizard -> Poison (deals splash damage like the Ice Wizard, but does it better which this deck by the way was lacking)
Mini P.E.K.K.A -> Miner (already explained why)
Goblins -> Bats (I decided to switch out Goblins even though they
have a great synergy with Miner because you needed a bit more flying
units and Bats provide similar damage to Goblins while also maintaining
the synergy with Miner)
Mega Minion -> Zap (This deck needed a small spell and with Flying Machine, Bats and Inferno Dragon I felt like you didn’t need more flyers)
You’re right. What this deck lacks are synergies. It feels like the cards just don’t work with each other..
Longest. Comment. Ever.
Uhh my comment wasn’t even long
Damn i didn’t even know what Meta stood for b4 I read this xD
now you know!
XD. be a better gamer
I thought Meta stood for:
As of now
It stands for:
It actually stands for:
I made a replacement deck! Think it’s better? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4e7d6db35a036318073dd0b7cd4179a69bd1aa90c8ab32645d198b7161bafc4d.png
So u remade airfecta…
Not really. I just included a Miner to have more synergy like @Zigge said, than added a couple spells and voila!
That’s airfecta lol
No, Airfecta is Hound with both Dragons!
Ik i said remade. U took out baby drag for flying
supermarine you better charge your ipad it’s at 98% xD
Guide in comment section lmao
“Don’t even try sending this dude on offense…”?!
Inferno Drag is such an OP support for Golem!
I think he means alone.
YES I DO MEAN ALONE
Or maybe not
But yes it’s stupid to say Inferno Dragon doesn’t work on offense. It’s like saying pekka doesn’t work on offense. They’re both counterpush units.
Before saying that Frisk is bad , remember he got 20 wins
Yea he did
Not saying he’s bad, but his decks are… interesting…
Interesting in good or bad?
more like bad tbh
Bc that’s totally what I want to hear.
and Im a she fyi
Im the only one who knew this?
yeah. Its like, well known by most that know me. Ask pretty much about anybody on the discord
Profile says 11, remember that
Send a scrnshot
Dont believe me?
Im pretty sure Frisk was lying
really nice deck/guide as always frisk!
when shall disqus be available for kindle??
Kindle??? Who is on Kindle???
No one claimed 5th btw
Somebody? Anybody? Who’s gonna claim 5th?
I feel like i’m running out of deck ideas the last days
Ideas for what?
Make a mortar hog deck. Haven’t seen those posted while they r popular-ish in meta.
Yeah i’m probably gonna write a guide about something in that direction
OMG I USE THAT!!!
Hog Mortar is a great hybrid deck.
i hate facing siege decks
Who agrees? My response to Frisk telling me to ‘fk off’.
Ok. Lemme get this straight. This deck might work for you but it could be made even better with a rework so the deck synergizes better. Telling me to ‘fk off’ is just insane because I was just making a suggestion. Don’t just stick to what you think, learn to accept others’ views. Everybody has their own thinking, and you’re not accepting other people and just shutting down and raging at other people because they want to help you. So yeah, stop just blocking off my choices, cuz we’re just trying to help here. CRA is one community, we are meant to be working together to help each other. Just like Zigge said: ‘It’s better to tell the truth than lie about something which you don’t think is true.’ Would you want us lying about something and saying something is good when there is something which needs to be improved? What if there is actually something which needs to be improved? Everybody is allowed to say what they say. Everyone has to accept everybody’s views, whether positive or negative, or else everyone here in CRA will hate each other and nobody can agree. This is not how the community works. You don’t resolve conflict with emotion, you resolve conflicts with logic and evidence.
Tell me, am I making sense?
Idk, are you?
yes, I am. Why else would I spend 1 minute writing all this stuff if I didn’t believe in it?
Umm, why is this sooooo long? Shorten it plz!
Toxicity is has not place in the CRA community.
ofc but did something happen?
Apparently someone said fuck off?
Not bad, but no spell.
And all because my version didn’t get posted
rip i was about to post my lightning bandinite deck but no. lightning just had to be nerfed and now i dropped from 3992 as a lv9 to 3640 wow
frisk, are you there? nice deck bro, but i didn’t have those LEGS.
