Dominating Miner Hut Deck
Hey guys! Its Blaze Stone back with another guide for you all! Today, I will be showing you guys an extremely powerful Pekka Miner Poison deck with Goblin Hut and the newest legendary of the game: Royal Ghost!
This deck is very powerful deck and has the ability to counter most decks in the meta. I easily got 12 wins with this deck and am having success with this in tournaments as well. Without further ado, let’s see the deck.
After the update, I feel she is in a very good position in the meta.
With Giant and Mega Knight decks being popular, PEKKA can provide you lot of advantage.
She is a mostly a threat card in this deck and not a win-condition.
Her main use is on defence to kill opposing win-conditions and then go for a counter push.
Generally, don’t reveal her till double elixir time unless you are matched up against say, a Giant user so that you need her on defence.
My favourite legendary card and the best right now according to CWA.
Miner is the main win-condition of this deck.
Miner can deal hundreds of damage with ease, taking out a chunk of the tower HP most of the time.
Important thing when using the miner is changing his placement every time.
One common thing I see is that 90% of the players I face send the Miner to the middle tile on the side of the tower nearer to vertical edge of the map.
Also, most players know this and can counter the first miner with ease.
Send him to another tile for more damage. Try to use all 16 tiles for placing him.
Don’t forget to use him to destroy pumps and assassinate princesses.
Royal Ghost: The new RG!
Easily one of the most over-powered cards as of now, this guy is simply insane.
Royal Ghost is the card which has the role of a Runner i.e. a card which can be used on defence and can be quickly be transformed into a counter-push.
He also does well as a splash support for your PEKKA, taking care of the ground swarms, which distract her.
Being only 3 elixir, he helps to cycle through your deck.
Use his invisibility well to get the maximum value out of him.
Don’t hesitate to play him on defence against cards like Hog or Miner.
Ranked as the best right now by CRA since as far as I can remember.
eWiz is a pretty good utility card. He does a great job on defence with its fork stun-attack as well spawn zap.
On offense, he can help to protect your PEKKA against cards like Inferno Dragon and Inferno Tower.
Slightly fragile so see that you protect him while going for offense. eWiz can be one of the most annoying cards if he survives with even 1 HP left.
Well honestly, I didn’t like this card even a bit since its release. But then I saw lot of people in my clan and on TV Royale using it and so decided to try out once again.
The card turned out to be astonishingly good in this deck.
Due to its range it can take shoot down many troops from a distance making it really great support.
Many times, it will get locked on to a tower instead of enemy troops and can whittle it down.
Miner + FM is a great combo when opponent is low on elixir.
Generally, main use of it is to defend and support from afar while PEKKA or Miner tank for it. One major weakness is that FM is pretty squishy since it can be one shotted by fireball.
My favourite card in the game.
Poison is one of the strongest spells in the meta right now. This is because of the dominance of cards like Guards and Bats which can be easily countered with Poison.
Use Poison to clear out the area and restrict the opponents moves.
It has a great synergy with Miner as well as PEKKA making it a great choice of spell to have in this deck.
Use it destroy buildings, glass cannons, swarms and finish of towers.
t is also an extremely good and definitely the safest counter to Graveyard.
One thing to remember is that use Poison when you are able to get lot of value and don’t go for damage.
A pretty self-explanatory card.
Many of you must be wondering why Zap is in this deck instead of The Log since eWiz is already in the deck.
There are 2 main reasons for this:
- After the nerf to Log Bait, Goblin Barrels are rarely seen, so Log isn’t that necessary in a deck like it was before the Balance Changes.
- When using cards like Miner and Graveyard, I personally prefer Zap over The Log as you can instantaneously attack the troops on opponent’s side which are used to counter your Miner or GY e.g. cards like Skeleton Army or Bats. The Log cannot hit all the skeletons of the skarmy and has no effect on air troops so Zap provides more value in that sense. And you have Poison already for pesky ground troops so stun effect of Zap can come in handy and will be helpful for you PEKKA.
Goblin Hut has greatly rose in popularity these days.
Personally, I have been using Goblin Hut for more than a year now, right since I was at 2.8k trophies and I must say Goblin Hut is at its apex right now.
The best spawner right Now IMO.
Goblin Hut is mainly used as a distraction for building targeting troops, for continuous chip damage, continuous distraction due to spear goblins for ground troops.
Their ability to snowball quickly synergizes well with Miner as the Spear Goblins can deal insane amounts of damage when protected by a tank or mini-tank.
*Note: These substitutions are only for those who don’t have the cards, have low level cards or don’t like the original cards. This is the strongest version of the deck. While the other versions are also strong, not all are this effective*
Instead of doing a minute-by-minute game plan section, I am going to explain the actually way of using the cards to win.
The reason is that due to unpredictable nature of this game, a minute-by-minute game plan mostly works only in theory and not in practice.
Therefore, knowing how to use the deck is better way of understanding the general game plan.
The Best Starting moves for this deck are:
- Placing a Goblin Hut
- Sending a Miner for chip damage.
Other than this, don’t make the first move and wait for the opponent to play, and then make your move so as to counter it.
In this deck, a primary Goblin Hut should always be placed in the middle of your side of the arena. And if you are able to cycle to another Goblin Hut, then the secondary Goblin Hut should be placed behind your crown tower, in the corner of the arena.
Try to have at least 1 Goblin Hut up throughout the game as those Spear Goblins can determine how successful your push/counter push will be.
There are two main sources of damage
- Chipping with Goblin Hut Miner.
- Overwhelming with PEKKA Poison.
Chipping with Goblin Hut and Miner is something you will utilize the most in any match.
These are cheap passive plays which can do small chunks of damage and don’t usually provide a risk for counter pushes.
This also includes using Flying Machine, eWiz and especially the Royal Ghost along with Miner. These cards though should be used mainly as counter push after defence along with Miner.
When you are the one to make the push, then mostly stick to Miner along with Spear Goblins from the Hut with Poison and Zap ready in your hand just in case they are needed.
Overwhelming with PEKKA and Poison is something which you will use few times but will deal large amounts of damage per push/counter push.
Don’t reveal your PEKKA in the first two minutes unless a situation arises when you need her desperately on defence.
Cards like RG, eWiz and Goblin Hut are decent counters to Hogs and Rams so in this case there is no need to use her unless the push is more than 10 elixir or you don’t have any of the other cards which is rare case.
However, against tanks like Giant and Golem, use your PEKKA.
Here, defended his Mega Knight push and then went on to Overwhelm him with Counter push and destroy the tower.
Overwhelming can be done in two ways: As a counter push or as a Beatdown push.
In counter push, you use your PEKKA on defence and then go for a counter push by placing support cards and Miner Poison.
Here, overwhelming happens because opponent will be a bit low on elixir to defend the push.
A beatdown push is basically placing PEKKA in the back and then forming a big push behind her.
With proper placements and moves, you can easily overwhelm lot of defensive set-ups.
Overwhelming here means to form a strong push such that opponent has to invest lot elixir on defence.
Then, you use your Poison to weaken most of the opponent’s defences and chip down with Miner while PEKKA is tanking.
Not necessary to use Miner on crown towers. You can use him to assassinate cards like Executioner which can survive Poison and can wreak havoc on your defences.
In overtime, focus on defence and chip down with Miner Poison.
This deck can defend any one-lane push with ease.
PEKKA is the MVP for defence while Poison helps to weaken all troops.
RG helps to invisibly attack the weakened troops while eWiz uses his forked stun.
Goblin Hut is a great distraction while FM can chip from afar, protected from enemy troops.
Flying Machine, eWiz and Gob Hut are targets for spells like Fireball and Poison. So, you can bait out spell with help of one card and then use the others, much to the annoyance of the opponent.
A PEKKA + Ice Golem combo comes on my side. Instead of over defending, I just place a Goblin Hut to distract them and Flying Machine to kill them. He also uses Poison to kill my Hut and Flying Machine, but FM due to its range avoids most of the Poison and successfully kills the PEKKA. 9 elixir on defence for 13 elixir push. +4 elixir advantage with FM surviving.
This section isn’t necessary as everything is explained above.
This deck does well against nearly all decks.
Major weakness I personally see is against 3M decks.
You should always Poison the 2 musketeers while use PEKKA in the lane of Battle Ram/ Hog rider or the princes (popular after update).
eWiz + Zap should be reserved for Minion horde. Gob Hut should always stay on the map as said earlier.
RG should be use to kill ground swarms or single musketeer in some cases.
FM should be used if you need it and can spare elixir.
Many times, you over defend and thus can’t defend the next time.
That’s all folks! Hope you guys enjoyed reading my guide.
As you know, I don’t do deck guides much but really loved this deck and hope you guys try it out!
By Blaze Stone
what third? WHERE ARE MY NOTIFICATIONS WILL???
he sabotaged it
I think the new meta will be burning miner decks
I am skeptical about this deck after the balance changes get live. Though it is good as of now.
the pekka is meta
6th, Yes!!! pekka works well in my deck
Sorry we only go to five
lmao sixth sucks no offense but you dont have to say “yes!!”
Lol it’s like it’s your life dream
That’s a little sad
Remember when hut spam was cancer?
I remember lol
U really need a snickers man, we only count to 5
1st reply to the 1st reply of the 1st reply 2 hours later…
1st of blablabla 10 days after xD
first of … after yay
Geez CRA posting “new” decks that have never been used before. Also 100% off-meta
12 wins in VARIOUS challenges? geez…
is it consistent or like scattered? My playing is very inconsistent. I can dominate on some days and completely suck on some.
seriously. Today I fell from legendary arena to hog three times during my sessions of pushing and finally got to 3900. Gonna have to modify my deck due to the elixir collector nerf:(
stop…you’re just annyoing everybody
IM SO SAD CUZ I DONT HAVE LOG
Then use goblins
This deck is of Loupanji I guess but good guide tho!
Seems like not a lot people like this deck.
Personally I really like it.
i will if i replace hut with sparky. i like the trash can
i like it its different but still effective
I changed Miner for Bandit, Pekka for MK and zap for FS, it suits me more than the original chip playstyle.
Uhmm sorry for spam but i recently got princess from clan chest and still have 40000 coins,so which kegendary should i buy?NW or bandit?
night witch since you can use her in variable deck type, from golem beat down to bridge spam, but if ur skillful enough, then chose bandit since she gonna make more value if u can use her
Bandit, NW is almost useless rn imo
Already bought NW
bandit i prefer cause its got a more diverse set of uses
It depends.. Are you a beatdown.. Or spam. Player?
First reply to the first reply,ironically 10 hours later
You can actually shut down a barrel with goblins if timed correctly. (theres a very small window, tho)
I knew that, but the timing is pretty hard to pull off
can you do the electro wiz one with mega knight
Ye my guide on gob hut was linked
I think this is hands down the best deck i saw on cra… So far… I haven’t tried the deck but by looking at it i can tell it works well looks tough to beat three.. Musk heal tho.. With battle ram.. Or that one log bait three musk deck
Lol i won this deck at Classic Challenge with Mega Knight 9witch Miner Poision deck xD

Guys, I have a question. I’m at about 4K trophies, have lvl 9 commons, lvl 7 rares, lvl 4 epics and lvl 1/2 legendaries and I have a lvl 10 account. As you can see, I am kinda underlevelled but I have a high skill level. I don’t want to lvl up my cards because I also don’t want to have a level 11 account. And my question is: Should I level up my cards?
Level up your cards. Its coll enough to reach high with low lvls but if you wanna progress you gotta lvl up
Thx. Gonna do it.
I’m actually really close to lvl 11, I have to upgrade like 1 card and then I level up
How many trophiesdo you have?
Only around 3500, although I was at 3800 2 days ago
I feel you bro. Nevertheless, I gonna to lvl them up.
Yeah sure, i gave up trying to stay lvl 10 a long time ago

Must be a troller, why didn’t u kick him???
I kicked him.
I would’ve immediately kicked him if I saw him doing that lol
That is What I did
love to see flying machine included in top decks now! its a super fun card to use, I’m definitely going to try this deck out. Also on a separate note, I know I should be doing this on discord but if anybody wants to join my clan, we just had some spots open up. It’s called Dabber Kklan and if you have over 3k trophies you can join. Mods you can delete this comment if you don’t want recruiting in the comment section sorry lol
What do you usually get for clan chests?
we used to get 10/10 every single time until a bunch of players stopped being active. We just opened up a bunch of room for new players so we can start getting 10/10 again!
cool, how many trophies are you at and how many trophies is your top person?
I am at 4301 right now because season just reset but I was at 5000 before season reset and I am the top person but the top 8 in the clan are all above 4k
I would use flying machine now that I’m thinking about it, but mine is only lvl 3 XD
I tried to use flying machine golem yesterday, it backfired
What level is urs?
it’s lvl 7 alright
mines level 1 XD
Dart goblin does better job than flying machine imo
Higher dps, lower elixir with less HP
More prone to spells and FM provides an air element which as an advantage
ya definitely the fact that its flying makes it a good choice as a utility card
Long time no see Jahoots! FM is pretty good , I am astonished as well
PEKKA Hut Miner Poison is the cliche challenge deck right now
MK miner is more popular
Thought pekka was more popular in challenges
I use a similar deck but with mega minion for flying machine and ice spirit for gib hut
So it has similar cards but play style is different.
Good ol spawners, most hated deck in CR ever (except on RG ebarbs era)
Yep, the cancer back in the day, before royal giant and ebarbs
guys, I currently have a quest smc almost ready to open, I just need 15 more points. I’m saving it for royal ghost, but will the contents of the smc change once royal ghost is released? if not I will open it now.
im doing the same thing
Seriously you changed your name
It’s my fav card
It’s mega knight instead of Pekka, and skeleton barrel instead of flying machine
That deck became meta after I created this deck, my original deck had bandit which was before rg challenge
sadly I only have 2 legendaries,Inferno Dragon and The Log..
Hi? Great deck
Flying Machine is a weaker Flying Musketeer
True, but it’s quite sneaky
Literally flying machine is so clutch it hilarious to watch people trying to counter it and just failing
Went 12-1 in legendary challenge with this.
Had no log until about a week ago, now it’s lvl 2 finally the game gives me something back
Got Sparky! Sad I didn’t get RG but Sparky bait beatdown is really strong.
I have a super magical unlocking, I hope I get something good (would rage if I get 5th night witch)
Genuine question: What would be worse to you: getting a fifth night witch or no legendary at all?
Lol I actually would say 5th night witch
I’ve gotten 7 miners in all… I’m not happy about it…
I think I’ll try this deck
Leggy chest up next in quests, I’ll lose it if I get an 8th miiner or a 6th graveyard, I want a second MG or RG or 1st Log
God how much do you spend on the game lol .
i got bandit in arena 5 from legendary chest now have 6 legendaries in arena 9
8 in arena 11, 2 are lvl 2, with one 1/4
I got e-wiz in a magical! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e158e242d002390019b8143116e4091639fa27d46664768658924a09fa6809d1.png
I have 3751 trophies can anyone suggest me some triple musketeer deck
Try this one which is currently hitting hard in the meta:
Bait Fireballs, logs and poisons with gang and horde and maybe ram, spam pump and go crazy with 3M in 2x Elixir with split lanes.
I need 6 golem to upgrade to level 6. I finally got to arena 10!
Why do you need that high level to get that far
because I use it in every one of my decks.
I have level 2 LJ now
This has been Deck of the Week for ages…
And I’ve read it a thousand times
Thanks a lot
yup a very… very… very long time
Oh wait, are you in CRA too?!
What do you mean?
who knew this would be THE meta deck
Yeah…a deck created by a guy who doesn’t even play the game right now when his deck is dominating
yeah EVERYBODY IN THE CR LEAGUE USES IT INCLUDING ME
we all know that zappies after changing work better than either ewiz and musky
