Remastered Mega Looner
Hey guys! The Ice Lord with my 2nd guide!
Once I got to arena 10, I didn’t know what deck to use, but then I saw a Mega-Hog deck and used that to get to arena 11 (Electro Valley, not Legendary Arena). Once I got there, I faced a lot of hard matchups, so I had to find a better deck. And I found this deck, and used it to get to Arena 12!
I was a bit skeptical, but quickly found out this deck dominates after seeing Tag’s video on it.
Lastly, it was totally coincidental that the deck was Mega Looner, but its still amazing! With that, lets get into the guide!
Mega Knight – Obviously need him!
He provides enormous value, smacking Fireballies, (Exe, Witch, Wizard, Hunter, Ewiz, Night Witch, Ice Wiz, etc.) Ebarbs, and ground swarms.
Amazing to counter push with, and you can split push the other lane with a Gang to guarantee some damage.
With Ghost becoming more popular, he is one more counter for it. (I know, 7 for 3, but there is counter push opportunity with support units.)
Goblin Gang – provides value for only 3 Elixir!
This card was why I was skeptical, but, these destroy.
If you’re facing off against a opponent who is defending all you’re troops, you can split these in the back, with 1 Spear and 1 Stab going to the non defended Tower, and slowly chip at the other lane. (I have beaten numerous people with this strategy.)
These guys can also shut down Bandits, Lumberjacks, Battle Rams, and other quick cards.
Miner – Since you only have a mini spell, he is your main win condition.
What differs this deck from classic Miner Poison decks, is obviously, there is no Poison.
This deck was made like that, so you use my favorite combo in the whole game, Miner + Bats.
Bats have a insane DPS, so this does massive amounts of damage.
Even if they defend, this deck has a relatively fast cycle, of 10. (not including Miner or Bats, I’m including Ice Spirit, Zap, Gang, ewiz) considering most 3-4 average Elixir cost decks are 8-10, this is fine.
Anyways, you can also pair him up with a Gang, or any troops from a defense, like Ewiz, or Gang, in that regard.
Ice Spirit – Freezes everything, splashes troops, and makes cute running noises! All for just 1 elxir!
This guy can be paired with a damaged MK to provide a pretty good counter push.
He can be paired with split Gang for chip damage, he can be cycled at the bridge, he can do a lot of stuff.
You can almost stop a naked Hog with him and Bats, you can with him and a Gang.
He can stop a Bandit if you put him on the Bandit, he can kite a P.E.K.K.A, and more.
Ice Spirit + Ewiz/Zap = Minions.
Electro Wizard – ZZZZZZZZZZZZZAAAAAAAAAAPPPPPP!
He can take out most Fireballies (mentioned above). He can defend and counterattack, can also kill most swarms, including hordes.
If the opponent out cycles your Zap and plays a Barrel, Ewiz the left two, (or was it the right two?) whichever two your Tower targets last. (assuming they split the Barrel)
If I know my opponent has Giant, MK, RG, or Golem, I preemptively play him in the back.
Bats – Also, with incredible value!
These things do everything!
Push, defend, and simply look awesome!
These can take out Ram, ljack, and Hog if paired with a Ice Spirit, and dish out so much damage.
Along with Fireballies, Dragons, Flying Machine, and Mega Minon. Since you have Gang, you can play them at the bridge for bait, then rush the other side with Miner + Bats.
Also, they can take out Hound, Balloon, and pretty much every air card besides Baby Dragon, and Horde.
Zap – Stuns Hog, kills Gang, (if your 1 lvl above, it kills all, but if your equal, it only kills the Spear Goblins) and does work!
If your opponent uses a Inferno Tower/ Dragon for your MK, you can stun it to get massive damage. I prefer this over Arrows/ Log, because Arrows, 1 take to long to deploy, and 2 is 3 instead of 2. Log does take care of ground swarms, but with Balloon, Miner and MK weak to air, Zap + Ice Spirit is better.
Balloon, Inferno Dragon, or Poison – The flex spot of you’re deck!
Balloon is good if you need the extra offence, being paired up with a Miner or split pushing makes him amazing. A really good 2nd win condition if you have to save your Miner for their Pump/ Princess.
Poison is what I like to use the most. It completely shuts down Graveyard, and can lend a hand in big Golem pushes, this decks other weakness. Since this deck has Zap, and if the can catch your miners, this is good for direct damage.
Inferno Dragon is if you’re facing Golem/Mega P.E.K.K.A. Melts through these, and shockingly, not many Golem deck run ewiz, so your safe. This variant also makes the deck more defensive, as you can soak up hits with the ID.
3:00 – 1:00
Right now its 1x elxir, so this is where you have the advantage over most of the more heavy decks.
You want to use Miner Bats, Miner Gang if they drop a Log, and maybe one MK for their Ebarbs.
You want to rely on the power of your defensive troops, such as Ewiz, Gang, and Bats.
Even if you have a half health Ewiz, or 3 Bats, send in a Miner to tank, the will either over defend or soak up the damage, so its a good way to get in damage.
1:00 – OT
This is the time when you go all in, defending their pushes with MK then going for the monster counter push.
Feel free to send in Miner Poison, unless they have GY.
If you are in OT, and you think you cannot tie, 5 times out of 6, you can go for the tie.
As I mentioned before, the deck is super defensive, using cards like Ewiz, Gang, and Bats which cost less but have more value.
New Meta Royal Ghost Deck
You know this deck. You hate this deck. You think the Royal Ghost should be known as the RG, not the Royal Giant.
But still, it is a deck that I’ve been seeing a lot of it on ladder, and even more in challenges.
This deck does fairly well against the Royal Ghost one, as you have Gang and Bats for the Miner, Ewiz for the Ghost, Poison for there Hut, and Zap for there Inferno drag.
Unless they have a huge Elixir lead, you can pretty much overwhelm them with MK, or play for the tie.
Your hardest matchup. (unless your running Inferno drag)
You do have both Miner and Poison for there Pump, MK with E-wiz has a lot of Tank killing ability, you do have a lot of options to punish.
The only problem vs Beatdown is if they can form a 20 Elixir push behind a Golem, you are dead.
Straight off the bat, if your running Poison, you have either won or it was a tie.
Usual GY users send in a Poison as well, which, if your not running Poison, completely denys Bats, Gang, or ewiz, and if they have your Tower locked on to something else, there is little you can do to stop them.
Even if this deck lacks a building, air gets shut down. Ice Spirit + Gang or ewiz stops Balloon, or just Bats.
Lava Hound isn’t really a problem, as its tiny damage output, its the Minons/Mega Minon that follows. Ewiz does a great job at stopping both of these.
Since you are pretty much just counter pushing each other, the game could go either way.
Usually you have the advantage, because not many control decks have P.E.K.K.A, and with Bats behind your MK, a Knight doesn’t do much.
Use the MK to stop any big pushes, or Ewiz, Gang or Bats for the small ones.
On that note, that is the guide! I hope you guys enjoyed!
Have fun with the deck!
See you in the arena!
First reply to the first reply
First to break the chain of repetition
First reply to the person who broke the chain of repetition
5th or is it 4th?
omg…how is tht 5th… so slow
😀 nice find
will has 22k comments.. i have a punny 1k what is this madness?
did u mean 4th?
good point, i just realise that…thx 4 the information
we only go up to 5
stop saying 6th i already said we only go to 5
we only go up to 5
guys just dont lol
BAN HAMMER! XD
I just hit jungle arena!!
Zap and Knight:lv9
if you have princess, you should use this:
bats/minions/maybe mega minion?
this deck rules, but yours is ok too
if u have log of course cuz bait is life
I have 95% winrate against it. So weak defense…
The defense isn’t weak. You haven’t played any good bait players. The defense is actually one of the strongest in the game.
Arrows for Gang + Princess, distract Inferno Tower with Bats and everything’s done.
And it’s not like surgical goblin wins ESWC and Kings cup using bait…. Seriously. Calling bait’s defense weak is kinda just untrue. BTW bats can be countered.
My opponents 😀 Actually Surgical Goblin is best player in the world and he can get 12 wins in Grand Challenge even with off-meta shit like GSkele Clone Ebarbs.
he was asking for a hog deck suggestion
If you have princess, do this:
Log (can swap for zap maybe?)
This is spell bait btw.
i would use this deck…. but i got nun uf deez leggyz
i noticed that too. im not the only one
w8 so is it minions or bats im confused
Actually you can just choose 2 from MM minions and bats. Your choice.
any substitution for mega knight ?
Idk it may be required
mega knights unique. cant really replace it
I would say PEKKA
PEKKA is the only option
poll: if you could remove elite barbs or royal giant, which would you do?
RG,e-barbs are still easy to counter but rg is too annoying with hes ridiculous range
there easy to counter but when there overleveled there a pain
They are but my decks are mostly defensive,I dont really have against them.I just hate rgs and thats I always carry buildings around
obviously ebarbs i hate them
None, they suck.
Royal Giant. He’s not even royal.
they both suck…
RG! People he is way worse than Elite Barbs because he is guaranteed damage at nearly any level while Elite Barbs have to be super leveled to be decent enough to reach the tower!
I agree. Royal giant is literally so easy to use all you have to do is support it with a splash unit
I need an xbow MK deck pls
XBow MK Ice Spirit Fire Spirits Inferno Dragon Tornado Guards E-Wiz
hmmmmm…..okay will try, guards low fire spirits low
Guards low? Well use Log.
Fire Spirits low? Seriously. Level. Them. Up. (dont take it too seriously lol)
Guards sucks, absolutely too low DPS.
If your cards are low they are your only swarm card that survives zap and log.
But they can’t counter anything
And that’s exactly why I chose them. Guards are guards, not killers. We already have the E-wiz, Inferno Dragon, Mega Knight and Fire Spirits for killing. If we’re gonna use a swarm, we might as well use a card that can reliably distract enemy troops without fear of getting zapped or logged.
If you want a card that distracts, not kills, pick the 1 Elixir less Ice Golem 🙂
Try putting a lv8 Ice Golem in front of your X-Bow when a pair of lv13 Ebarbs are coming XD
most decks like that have more then one specific counter to cards like that like skarmy knight plus anything and so on its clearly stated in many tier lists that all cards are ghood but some cards are way better at certain things then others
Btw a lot of people think that the best cards are those used by the top 200 but that’s not always true. They have the highest trophies but that doesn’t mean they are the best players in the world. Put them in a grand challenge and they lose to challenger 1s and 2s with homemade, cobbled decks like me and you. Not the guys with the lv13 Elite Barbarians, but the people who actually learn from their matches. The people who use nonmeta cards because they actually counter the METAs. So if I were you I would actually try out every single card in the game that might be worth using, no matter their userates.
Edit: OK, looks like I’m raving again. Just ignore the message if you want to but be sure to use guards XD
GUards are useless
Well… Looks like I’ll have to write a guide on X-Bow Guards to prove my point. Let’s save this discussion for another day.
… hey suck, watch a tier list vid
What makes you think I haven’t?
um… because that is what they all say
I like you. I myself am a meta-breaker
You say evrything sucks
No, I say this only to cards which sucks. :))
It’s pretty much the same as goblins but they are spell-proof for 1 more elixir
Check when I wrote that comment. Atm, Guards are really good.
XBow, MK, Ice Spirit, Mega Minion, Ice Golem, Tesla/IT, Bats, Fireball
This deck gets rekt by any form of 3M as long as you deploy it after your opponent plays MK.
EXACTLY! I played classic challenge vs 3M and I lost izi…lol
dont play the mega knight its supposed to be a defensive card anyway just do loon miner pushes
And have the loon get rekt by pesky e-wiz? Most players get frustrated and play their MK on offence sooner or later…
ive never seen a three musketeer deck with ewiz
Well shame on you. If you took a look at TV Royale back in May or so, you could find 2~3 3M + E-wiz decks within 30 seconds of scrolling.
what deck even was it ive always been a ladder player and never saw that
and even if they did play loon minion miner that should handle the electro you have to adapt to the card that you will be playing against
MIner CHip them out…
okay maybe some tips on using him it feels weird whenever I play him. Like idk what to do.
Use him like a fireball and slam him right on top of the opponent’s glass cannons for + elixir.
yeah but what about big tanks and they are fighting air?
Against big tanks just choose another troop, he is more like a Giant Skeleton than a PEKKA and you shouldn’t count on him to kill the tank. If they’re fighting air then don’t use him to defend. Just place him on the other lane without any support and your opponent will have a bad time.
Still struggling to get good results with Mega Knight deck, so will give this a go. Thanks Pompeyo!
I don’t have MK 🙁
Wow saying this deck crushes spell bait makes me cringe and raged
It doesn’t counter zapbait in the slightest imo
it has 2 light spells and a splash spawn unit.
Doesn’t work 4 me:( I hate Elite! (what is the best 3 or less elixir card to counter elites? tombstone or bomber?)(plz no skarmy/ggang cuz they get logged)
use knight m8
great guide and deck tho!
BTW PEKKA is control but great guide!
wth is this
Great guide Ice Lord! I wish I could use this but I have no mega knight
If your opponent has Poison, Fireball combined with log/zap this deck is dead on defense, you can’t bod damage with a Miner constantly, may as well use a Knight or Royal Ghost, but then no solution to the pumps. There’s a reason why this deck went out of the Meta and it’s fairly obvious why. No hate tho, between arena 11-12 this deck would wreck as people seem not to have enough legendaries/levels to build the current meta decks (and enough skill to master spell bait mortar).
nicee, i got I-WIZ from clan chest and great deck i should try this but i dont have miner
Did you get used to with English? @@ please find out the mistakes
I used this deck to just to 4k it’s great . I wanted to write this guide
You’re making me want to use this now… RIP PE.K.K.A Hog deck that got me to Arena 11. It currently has the lowest winrate out of any of my Ladder decks…
My variotion uses inferno d instead of ewiz knight for ice spirit and arrows for goblin gang
I’ve made a poweful Miner Prince deck:
Guide or not?
Skele Barrel would work rly well w this deck.
I know but it is underlevelled
Lvl 10 is fine even
GG Ice Lord.
Sorry to be picky but Bats CAN counter Baby Dragon if u surround it.
Lol, I try that every game but I’m not good enough
Aim for the shadow, not the Baby Dragon itself
Just practice with clanmates. It’s not too hard if you time it right
GG, and I have 2 ideas for a guide:
2.3 log bait
dirty barb hut rocket cycle
with log bait deck, I have beaten a guy who finished 5612th in the world last season. with rocket cycle, I’m still working on it, but I have beaten a guy in league 2 with the prototype. please share your opinions!
lol ok I will keep working on the deck
Man this looks like a really fun deck and again, my Balloon is one of my highest level Epic also but I don’t have Miner! Its killing me!
try knight or goblin barrel
i dont have all cards (royal ghost hates me it doesnt come in the shop i have 40000 gold) and thats killing me!
Ya same, I got an easy 40,000 from the touchdown challenge along with my Crown Chest but i’m just waiting for Miner because i’m sure Royal Ghost is going to get nerfed.
oh idk tho
Lel my lvl 9 acct has more cards than my lvl 11 which is crazy (well probably cuz my lvl 11 keeps getting goddamn duplicates)
as logan said, knight if u want the mini tank ability, or goblin barrel if u want the chipping ability
(well, he said knight or gb)
Ya its just not the same. But thanks anyway! Knight is as close as your going to get for a tank for balloon but he’s not a win condition if my balloon can’t reach the tower.
I would use ice golem as he’s an excellent tank for the balloon
Lol I have miner but I have no mega knight
any specific replacements to miner id prolly use the knight but im open to suggestions.
we’ll since there isn’t already a mini tank in the deck ice golem or knight work and that’s actually what older balloon cycles used. When surgical goblin played this deck he was running ice golem over ice spirit.
oof what arena are you in
How is my deck that got me to leggy arena?
i think mega pekka is a bit too expensive, thats why i use my mega hog deck
That’s a bit expensive tbh
if i did something like this deck, i would take out ice spirit and put in rage it works well with balloon
i dont know bout the current good meta because i played 2017 september meta
I would use the guards instead of ice spirit.
lol i dont have a miner
