P.E.K.K.A Double Prince Deck – Old Deck For The New Meta
Hey everyone I am Sally or Splendid Spaloh with my first guide!
Today I will be explaining one of the key decks of the new meta as both the princes are buffed and ready to roll!
- One Legendary
- Counters new meta, other Double Prince decks and Goison
- Also is part of the new Meta
- So many threats
- Needs many well-leveled epic cards
- Needs a lot skill when it comes to tracking elixir.
Pekka is the main tank/killer of the deck, it is going to be bursting the every enemy troop with the princes and a single hit will be a huge part of the tower’s health.
Make sure you play this card at the back during double elixir to start building up the huge amounts of damage that the push will have once it has reached it’s peak.
Pekka is also reliable on destroyed many high health tanks and a good counter to X-Bow decks so you may play her defensively and make pushes with the Princes.
Since we don’t have Pump in the deck we need to be careful with our elixir on this card, make sure that your opponent is not at peak elixir too or else they may punish us with a small push.
The ground splash unit has received a buff like his brother in the recent patches, this makes him even better in double prince decks with the combination even stronger than it already is.
He will be our early game mini-tank, canceling small pushes such as rams, small chippers and squishies.
He is great support with the prince pushing the Pekka a little faster and instantly locking on targets once they are on charge state, meaning that most squishies will be quickly destroyed by this fast unit.
Afterwards use him with Prince and Poison or on double elixir behind Pekka.
If you were lucky enough to gain the elixir advantage this guy will be very helpful if placed as the back, gaining charge and bound to make a good elixir trade.
Hard Counter to nearly everything and the main offensive card has been seeing lots of play due to the buff he has got that revived Goison decks that have been waiting for a while.
He is the hard counter to the cards we are unsure about, e.g a Hog is not guaranteed to be killed with Dark Prince or only Guards so we may have to use this guy to strike down an incoming Hog.
Use him with Poison or Zap for a counter attack or if they have used a lot of elixir and have a lack of squishies.
Afterwards use him with Dark Prince and Poison or on double elixir behind Pekka.
The Glass cannon of the deck gains us a lot of time with repetitive stun for us to get the elixir to play the other cards of the deck that don’t cost a lot.
Also a key card of Pekka decks, against some bait decks or hog cycle decks (and the upcoming return of Trifecta) with inferno towers or inferno dragons (which is a card that is being kicked out of the meta) he will leave no worries about our tank dying and also is well protected as behind the bursting push, any units use to distract him will evaporate.
He could be used against other Prince decks and gain us advantage on them easily and quickly, making us the greater the double prince user and advantage for the for-game.
These are here to support you against small pushes and many cards that are not worth using princes or ewiz to counter.
These little guys are also useful in blocking many hits from other powerful hitters while our own ones destroy them.
Aerial decks are under-used so this card is not vital to protect.
It will be supporting the bridge section when mini-tanks and squishies are placed behind the pekka and princes to get their attention or destroy our Ewiz.
It is also very helpful to guards when there is a mediocre push e.g Hog with ice golem and spirit, Ram with Gang etc.
A pretty self explanatory card, using it on squishies, making the job of poison of minions and goblins even faster.
It is also good to gain advantages in battles like Pekka vs Pekka or a similar push and this deck has burst damage so the delay that Zap causes the enemy, they are pretty much burnt.
Also good to use on inferno units if our Ewiz has successfully been destroyed and disrupted.
This card is a very important card so we must make sure on what we will use it on and which choice is the most useful.
Cutting down glass cannon pests, all the squishies and gaining advantages when our opponents start spamming cards as they cannot defend against the mega push.
There’s not much we could change in this deck but her are a few that you may want to use:
You need to stall as much as possible, track elixir and make sure you don’t get a huge disadvantage.
Hide pekka unless necessary, make counter attacks that will get us good elixir trades.
Start Pekka from the back and building up double Prince, Mega Minion and Ewiz supported by Poison.
If the opponent also starts an attack at the other lane than use Guards to stall a bit and the DPS of the P.E.K.K.A and Princes will already drill the King Tower if it is not stopped.
These will need lots of crafty ideas to stall and control the hogs, use counterattacks to force out elixir and don’t lose the elixir advantage against these guys.
If you managed to stall to x2 elixir, our pekka push will deal with any sort of cycling push.
Use value poisons on the splits, zap to finish off the double Musketeers and P.E.K.K.A or Prince the other lane.
Control your elixir usage very carefully.
Start cards at the back often (Mega Minion and Dark Prince) to create hesitation.
If you managed to stall to x2 elixir, our P.E.K.K.A push will deal with any sort of chip push.
Pekka the Giant, stop the Prince charges and slow down with Guards and Ewiz.
Counterattack as much as possible.
We directly counter all edges of the classic types of the Ebarb decks.
We directly counter all edges of the classic types of the RG decks.
Aerial Decks (if there is any)
Mega Minion becomes important, power it with Zap and Ewiz and you’re pretty much safe on the ground.
We directly counter all edges of the classic types of the Golem decks.
Use Guards between the fight of the P.E.K.K.A so ours is not hit and theirs is dead, with our powerful cards.
It should be able to drill to their defences once their tanks are gone.
Good Luck in your matches and I’ll see you all in the comments or maybe another guide 😉
I wrote this at midnight, or else I usually would write that in my guides. Thanks!
No Problem, just want to improve peoples guide quality! (including my own)
could you be more specific(ex. We directly counter all edges of the classic types of the Golem decks) for I myself play P.E.K.K.A and I take damage from golem pushes.
We counter the golem nearly instantly due to the overkill damage and then with the tower’s help and perhaps a zap the rest of the support troops are obliterated and we are left with an incredible counterpush that we could add on to. There are different pekka decks, some could be more defensive and control-ish, but this one is maximum offence, meaning it should have the capability of cutting through every card in the game.
2cd :D:D (still dont know why the count for :P)
first great guide , pretty threating deck , veeeery hard to use , just decemted it in the luner challange with a 3.8 Golem deck cuz the guy lost the elixer Adv very often and quickly .
I’m at 4K. Guide on my own Lavahound Shield Deck?
What does it consist of? 😮
Lavahound, Dark Prince, Cannon Cart, Guards, E-Wizz, MM, Poison and Arrows.
The deck would work way better if you used zap for arrows and hound for graveyard.
Doesn’t sound like a lava deck
lol im writing a guide now tips?
Make sure your spelling goods, and make sure to add important details that are second nature to you but maybe not other people. However with that said don’t get to deep into that tip. What I mean is don’t say things like: “Don’t Zap the Knight when it’s at full health because. . . ” Because I’m sure that the majority of people already know that. For more tips look here: http://188.8.131.52/~clashroyalearena/misc/writing-guides
“Make sure your spelling goods”… LOL
It was a joke, happy it didn’t go un-noticed 😀
Well played XD
This deck was meta like 1 year ago and both princes need to be buffed to be meta again now
Anyways, great in-depth guide of the remastered PPP deck
It used to have the ice wizard and something else though
ice wizard and princess
This is way different from the original deck, both princes are buffed too, have you not noticed? I also made this deck by myself, didn’t remaster of whatsoever despite the edit by the editor’s on the website saying “Old Deck For The New Meta”.
Beat the lunar challenge with a 4.8 elixir deck
even I was surprised(The ramp-up part was impossibly hard)
I’m still doing the first part with 3M Ghost lol
yes it is. I picked this deck for it cuz my pekka is my highest with 5 and I lost the first two for not knowing the deck and how it cycles so i finished it 4-3. payed 10 gems and redid it and went 9-1
Won’t be able to do the Lunar Challenge :O ! Can’t play till Saturday and by then its gone. -_-
I’ve heard CRA have a Discord.What’s it like and should I join?
Yea you should
No , it’s more of a nsfw server by now , better yo to join official cr server , that’s better
Hi everyone! I’m back after the looong holidays! I’ll be checking these guides more often now. Who’s doing the Cannon’s dream? I want to see more of that. BTW I got to Legendary Arena ;P
Scarlett’s the one doing Cannon’s dream
Where’s Scarlett btw?
For my next guide, (hopefully writing it tomorrow) should I write on the Golem Double Prince or the new Bandit/DPrince/Musketeer?
Also c’mon people I want more comments and questions and suggestions for this deck ;D
golem double prince please
Golem double prince I like this kind of deck I’d like to read a guide about it
Bandit please, I love her.
Isn’t GPP having similar mindset with PPP?
GPP doesn’t go for counterattacks and is just focused on drilling through the towers.
And I also love Bandit, and due to the votes it also is Bandit!
The only leggy i dont have is the bandit
Ur not missing out on much
GG for a new writer.
meh, good job man
but i hate this metagame, where double princes are messing around, and logbait is considered as one of the ‘chip decks’
somehow i love my rocket so much
Oh my, rocket is such a dear against these decks
https://www.deckshop.pro/check/?deck=IceSpirit-Zap-Knight-Fireball-Guards-Balloon-Miner-InfernoD Check this out
What about it?
Oh cool. Looks nice, sadly I don’t have Inferno Tower.
I was gonna say….
U mean dragon?
Look down, I said Dragon
U said tower
But seconds afterwords I commented Dragon right below.
I did not see that sry 🙂
Who else saw this meta coming back? <3
Me kinda. Maybe LavaLoon too?
With bridge spam? I think not
cancer princes bridge spam…. uhggg…
Nope, we r gonna see a new Phantom Combo in Bandit and Dark Prince.
Aka bridge spam
Nah, not Bridge Spam.
i do like pekka but this deck seems to heavy like pekka, e wiz 2 princes?? plus heavy spell, maybe have some easy cycle cards replace something (ex. ice spirit, or possibly miner?)
You could switch Guards for Ice Spirit if you want.
Why is there an ice wiz in the pic, and no ice wiz in the deck? C’mon Will!
because that is how the old clash royale version of this deck was set up
The original triple p (yea that’s what I call the deck :P) had ice wiz
It also had Freeze and Arrows.
I went 9-0 in the challenge with the golem double prince. It feels like I can’t even loose and its only a matter of time before I 3 crown them.
Golem 2P is sorta cancer now lmao. Both princes are really op
that’s why Giant Skeleton + Sparky is gud right now
Guys can someone review my deck giant sparky night witch executioner zap tornado pump and skarmy because before I started using this deck I could only get 4 wins in challenges(yes I know I’m shit for only getting 4) now am already 9-0 while messing with my opponents
Sounds good maybe gob gag would be better for skarmy or even minions.
Sure I’ll test it out and I’ll try changing executioner for mega minion
I actually think executioner works well especially with your tornado
If it’s too expensive, consider Ice Wizard instead of Executioner. The Snowstorm (Ice Wiz + Tornado) defense is very good, especially when you add Sparky in there
thats why theres a pump. XD
Well the new meta is I guess bridge spam meta 3.0?
gosh that’s true
double prince is real cancer…
which would technically be bridge spam
What is that log thing in news?!???
The key is to count your elixir as a must and get used to the cycle. This will punish you if you aren’t used to it. Just hold off on the pekka until double and you will be fine. Sometimes you can win without even dropping it if you play well.
I clearly say that in the guide.
I saw a vid on the magic archer and it seemed pretty credible. Basically the magic archer is an Executioner, Dart Goblin with no splash. He kinda starts shooting the tower directly after crossing the bridge and apparently he doesn’t oneshot spear goblins? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALFi1SI0obI
Tell me if it’s fake…I wouldn’t know.
I predicted that it would have a piercing arrow and I was right 😀
He does do splash sinilarily his mechanics are like an executioner
lol nice deck and guide but its super hard to play
new meta is golem spam (check TV royale on electro valley and above, pumps,golems, and muskys are all you see almost)
And Giant Spam
We directly counter all edges of the classic types of the [insert card] decks.
But in all seriousness, nice deck. Although it’s very hi-risk hi-reward.
It’s hard to play, and as you get better the hi-risk goes down.
Decks like this is why I revived my Giant Skelly + Sparky deck. Great guide!
I’ve gone against this deck many times in the final stage of the lunar new year challenge and my double prince deck has shredded it each time. golem, double prince, lumberjack(pump in regular battles), mega minion, minions, poison, log. Ive also won quite a few tournaments with this deck. but in the end i using giant 3 muskies, nw, gob gang, minion horde, knight, poison, log to get very easy 3 crown wins to win the lunar new year challenge
Hyped for the Magic Archer Draft Challenge!
Yeah same, even tho I’m probably gonna get 5 wins
I might be able to get the 12… draft is my specialty ill watch some videos first tho.
Wait, could magic archer hit king from behind the river??
Yeah he can. If the archer is behind the tower’s range and u place something right in front of it he will splash the tower as well.
Yes, but not on his own. Only if he is behind the river and you place a troop directly in front, he will hit the troop and the tower. His PROJECTILE range is 11 but his normal attack range is 7. If that makes sense. This makes him pretty op (like a better executioner)
Only prob is splash radius
Yeah that’s what I thought. That would be a clever way to activate ur king
Click this link to add as friend in Clash Royale!
The link isn’t there XDDDDDDDDD
oh wow oops! ill put it in lateral
look at my deck look at the offensive potential on it https://www.deckshop.pro/check/?deck=IceSpirit-Skellies-Log-FireSpirits-Zap-IceGolem-Mirror-Gobs
XD it says RIP
XDDD R.I.P buddy
SOMEBODY used inspect element xD
I’ve done that b4
To do it with defense create a high damage spell deck like rocket lightning fireball mirror goblin barrel miner poison graveyard
I feel really dumb to ask but hoe do you put pictures if you are using google docs to write the guide someone help plz
the editors did it, and they don’t use google docs to create this page
no he means he writes the guide on docs and copies it onto the guide submit page. obv he doesn’t have 5 guides yet
U don’t put in pictures. WIll and Norby does it
Played a defensive Magic Archer and took 1000 damage on the opponent’ tower.
7-1 in the challenge. How does the challenge go for you?
Inferno tower+skarmy+prince=dead push
And maybe some fire spirits
Dude, there’s always a way to counter a push so it’s useless naming them all.
i know thats just my way
Zap the Skarmy and fire spirits including the inferno, use poison or/with ewiz and your defense that you think “=dead push” will be a dead defense.
i got it early too!
went 2-3 on my lvl 11
went 12-2 on my noob
new guides? hello? lol
It’s not getting released ;(
