New Meta P.E.K.K.A Bridge Spam Deck
Hey everyone! It’s me, Supermarine, back at it again with a new-school P.E.K.K.A Bridge Spam Deck.
As you may know, Bridge Spam’s userate decreased massively after the Mini P.E.K.K.A buff, the Ice Wizard Buff, and the Battle Ram nerf.
However, I have seen a new bridge spam, featuring a surprise inside: Dark Prince! This deck was made by Wicky Royale and played by Nickatnyte.
Enough talk! Let’s get to the guide!
P.E.K.K.A Bridge Spam Deck
She is one of the best counterpush units in the game right now.
You can kill an MK or Hog with her, then perform a counterpush with your own attack units!
She absolutely destroys just about every tank in the book (except Lava Hound, but we all know that Bridge Spam hard counters LH) with quite a bit of health left, meaning you can put a Dark Prince or Bandit down to assist her if you want to attack!
Overall, she is a very good tank troop, if not the best tank, to have in a Bridge Spam!
Many people think of him as total trash, and they’re kinda right.
However, since the nerf to Battle Ram, many Bridge Spam users have turned to the Dark Prince for his decent 360 charge and area damage.
In fact, if it wasn’t for him, Bridge Spam would probably die down completely!
He can deal really good area damage if he charges up, and even if he doesn’t, he one shots Goblins and deals good damage to low cost structures such as Tombstone and the newly buffed Tesla, and even Siege structures like X-Bow.
Like P.E.K.K.A, he is a very good counterpush unit, as you can defend with him, and even if he loses his shield, you can still use him with Bandit on the counterpush!
Overall, he is very good to have in a Bridge Spam!
This mask wearing, blackjack wielding gal is a mainstay card of Bridge Spam.
Her dash attack really puts a dent in those cards you want hurt, especially glass cannons. She also deals good damage without the charge as well.
If paired with P.E.K.K.A, mini tanks won’t be a much of an issue for her.
The best ability that she has is being able to snipe opposing troops from across the river, as long as they are in range.
However, her role in Bridge Spam is mostly self explanatory.
This shocking man is great for DPS and resetting an Inferno Tower or Dragon.
He also deals decent damage to mini tanks that could threaten other cards in the deck like Bandit or Dark Prince.
Overall, he’s mostly self explanatory.
I love these adorable little fellers! They’re so versatile for their cost!
You can kill ground swarms, surround stuff with them, distract Infernos, cycle, and even kill mini tanks, all while being cheaper and killing faster than the Minions!
Overall, they’re mostly self explanatory, and more than welcome in Bridge Spam!
Another one of Bridge Spam’s mainstay cards.
It provides lane control against every single swarm or Horde out there.
It even kills most glass cannons if they stick around long enough!
I don’t really know if Bridge Spam decks originally had a Pump, but I’m assuming they don’t.
In this Bridge Spam, though, the Pump allows us to have an edge over cheaper decks like P.E.K.K.A Miner Poison and most MK Hog decks, allowing us to keep up with their cycle.
We can also use it to have a greater advantage against more expensive decks like 3M split pushing decks and Golem Beatdown.
Overall, it can be a real game changing card if used right!
There are two things that are really key to your success at this time: Pumping and bridge spamming.
By doing these two things, you are inflicting Tower damage, cycling to another Pump as fast as possible, preventing damage to your Tower, and shaping your hand to better arm yourself defensively.
Just a word of warning: NEVER place P.E.K.K.A in the back, as the opponent can punish you with a building targeting troop or Siege weapon as they please.
SPAM THAT BRIDGE!!!
Bandit+Dark Prince functions a lot similarly to the old Phantom Combo, Bandit+Ram.
Also, if P.E.K.K.A was used on defense at all, ALWAYS use it on the counterpush unless it’s at low health.
Use Zap, Bats, and eWiz to reset/distract any Infernos.
P.E.K.K.A. Easy as that.
Use Bats to attack support if necessary. If P.E.K.K.A isn’t in cycle, then use the eWiz+Bats.
ALWAYS place your P.E.K.K.A in the same lane as soon as possible.
If it isn’t in cycle, get it in cycle as soon as possible.
Use the Dark Prince and Bats to attack any support.
Ok, I’ll be honest.
You will most likely need P.E.K.K.A to counter a P.E.K.K.A, as it’s the most efficient way to do so.
However, Dark Prince and eWiz are great at keeping this gal held still with shield health and constant stuns.
Paired with a high DPS troop (especially Bats), they can shred right through her!
Check the substitutions for even more options when it comes to DPS!
Use P.E.K.K.A, eWiz, and/or Bats to deal with him.
For any Elite Retards, use Dark Prince.
eWiz and Bandit are your best bets against the Hog in Single Elixir.
In Double Elixir, however, you can use your P.E.K.K.A to completely deny him any swings, and then counterpush with your threat cards afterward!
You have several Miner blockers in the Bandit, eWiz, and Dark Prince.
Bandit and eWiz both work well against lone Miners, but when Poison is added, they will die before the Miner is killed, meaning he will still get a few shots on the Tower.
That’s where Dark Prince comes in! He is durable enough to survive a Mjner Poison onslaught.
Also, watch for juke Miners.
Can’t tell if they’re going to target your Pump? Hover a troop near your Pump and your tower, and if a red exclamation point appears in the area, that’s where Miner will pop up!
If you mess up on your troop placement, use Zap to make Miner retarget.
Unlike Miner Poison, Graveyard Poison is not powerful enough to take out your Bandit or eWiz, so you should be fine.
Graveyard Freeze, however, is a much harder matchup because they get lots of Tower damage on their first push, and you run the risk of them outcycling you.
First, bait out the Freeze with Bandit. Then, once Freeze is used, deploy Bats on the Graveyard and watch the Skeletons drop like flies!
They will outcycle you on every push, and will always have good defenses.
Against the Balloon, your best shot is to use the Bats or eWiz.
If you want to have another high damage troop in the deck to deal with Balloon easier, check the Substitutions for more.
Shouldn’t be too hard.
Chances are, they’re going to split these gals behind the King Tower, so when they do, place P.E.K.K.A on the side with the two Muskets (or just Poison).
Then, if they use a Ram or Knight with the solo Musket, use the Bats to surround and the eWiz to kill, leaving the mini tank exposed.
Poison Pumps in Single Elixir and the two Muskets if possible during Double Elixir.
Don’t let them force you to use your Zap on something you don’t want to use.
The main target will definitely be the Barrels. Against Princess, use Bandit or eWiz, and against Gang, use Bats.
Any other Bait troops can be dispatched by the eWiz.
P.E.K.K.A will definitely be your best counter to this guy.
Otherwise, you can use Dark Prince and the Bats.
Also note that if Dark Prince is charging and the MK is preparing to jump, once he hits the Dark Prince, he will still get the charge off because of shield HP!
Be sure to use the Pump as an opener wherever possible to help keep up with their cycle.
Check out the video to see Nickatnyte trophy push with this deck!
So that’s all for just another of my many deck guide by yours truly, Supermarine! See y’all next time!
Wow, didn’t see you here long time! How are you?
good, i am too busy right now cuz ME IN JUNIOR HIGH BOIZZZZZZZZZZZ
Noice sophomore here
i’m in 8th grade
im a freshman (9th grade)
But junior high isn’t even that high yet….
HAHAHAHAH just wait till English f*cks you over in high school
9th grade … (*tears up cuz of the pile of homework he has in front of him*)
I’m in seventh grade and I hate my school for the amount of homework especially maths
for now, i just usually read the guides, don’t have time to comment 🙁
Wish ya more time to annoy us with Caps Lock On comments 😉
Not the RG…
ANAYFING BUT DA ARGEE
Hey salty how you feel about me three crowning a max rg player today XD
First reply to the comment with the accidental letter ‘t’
i wonder how your 5000 word sparky guide didnt get posted…
Third reply to the comment with an accidental ‘t’
This time I was ABSOLUTELY ABSOLUTELY sure, mistake again…
You’re still the first to claim 4th because Mike Zhang claimed t4th
Everything was calculated
5th. I’m going to assume the Elixir Collector and Battle Ram are interchangable
Also why does the bandit look like sia
do screenshots, that’s beauty
HAHAHAHA makes my day XDXDXD
oh yeah i noticed lol
Can I replace the electro wizard I know is a must have but I’m f2p with bad legendaries
Musketeer, ice wizard, and archers will work (wizard, witch, and executioner sometimes)
I’d say archers or ice wizard
mega minion, musketeer, archers, or ice wiz could work
I wouldnt use ice wizard as a replacement because of the serious lack of DPS. Try musketeer.
you should have ewiz or change your deck to the Lightning Hog variant
You might want to try lightning hog w/ exe
Don’t complain I have only one,
Musketeer is best, but not recommended in this deck. You could try archers
SC nerfed battle ram charge speed too much, it never touch my tower anymore lol
Battle Ram didn’t need a nerf. It was balanced. NW was the key for the rise of bridge spam. SC did nerf it too much
im 14 dude…
15 I outrank you lol
Im 16 outrank you lol
I’m 12 I outrank you
Well, i’m 18
OUTRANKED ALL OF YA
Jk, i’m 15
I don’t think using pekka to defend hog is a bad idea because
1 if you place him fast enough, the hog won’t touch you tower
2 the opponent who has probably spent around 6-8 elixir on his hog push now has to deal with a full hp pekka coming at him.
Just my opinion though, great quite btw
You can read it again
P.E.K.K.A isn’t a good defense option in single elixir because it’s overspending, if they decided to push with lone Hogs, then it would be a hard time
It doesn’t matter if it is lone because you can create a deadly counterpush that will force them to spend more
Or they will just have to counter a full hp pekka. They could do this with an inferno tower, which will earn you a positive elixer trade of 2, or counter it with something else. If they spend three elixer countering a lone pekka, then that trade is neutral, giving neither player an elixer advantage. However, if they are playing cycle hog, you may need to use an ewiz. Usually, you can count on your opponent playing more than 3 elixer to counter a pekka, especially if you have a zap or log in hand for any potential skarmy.
And you didn’t think about their counter-counter push after defend your Pekka? Like using inferno dragon, which is very popular in this meta
Bats or ice spirit
too much for a lone hog I guess
I’m glad to see Log Bait beeing a Hard counter to decks with meta cards like this
lol i just started using a variant of it (ewiz instead of princess and arrows instead of log)
I usually choose arrows over log, especially since my newly-upgraded level 11 arrows will now take out max minions and minion hordes (which are extremely annoying)
But it costs 1 elixir more and many of the pros recommend you log a hog if you have a bad hand to cycle and push it back. So that’s why log is best, then zap (as it has stun) and arrows is worst.
In addition to that, you have ice spirit and princess
What do u mean ????????
i replaced princess with ewiz…
Nah, even Ice wiz is a better option
thats one reason i prefer arrows, cuz of those pesky minion hordes
hey, ewiz instead of princess lol?
Do you have ewiz?
Oh didn’t know
Xbow decks do decently against log bait. Had a few matchups and started tricking my opponent a lot with his rocket. Log for barrel. Fireball for princess. Exe knight and ewiz for the rest. So decent matchup. Please don’t kill me log bait lovers…
Xbow is having a hard time against MK Bait variant
If you go logging every time you face the barrel, the gang would punish you hard
Depends what cards you have bro
Chip Control, Zap Bait, Beatdown and Triple Skeleton
log bait ftw it almost carried me to legendary arena(my lvls: knight: 10, inferno T: 7, princess: 1, gob gang: 9, barrel: 4, log: 1, rocket: 7, ice spirit: 9)
i don’t have log lol
i’m using zap instead, but found it hard to deal with mirror match-up
Yeah log bait brought me to new trophy high 3979
Is mega knight balloon used often? I haven’t seen it once
I think so…
In arena 11, it’s used so much that it’s not even funny
Really? I hover around 4k and have never seen it. Weird.
How?? Man, at 4700 trophies, it’s really common
it is used often
Anyone uses Xbox in tourney? I went to a 2 tourneys during the weekend and I was the only one using xbow. ;-(
X bow is quite good in tourney
I use Xbow in tourneys. Don’t worry if people don’t use it, that doesn’t make it a bad card.
x-bow is still viable, but it sorta fell out of the meta cuz of the meta knight
And btw when is the next CRA tourney?
dunno, but the last tourney ended yesterday, so no chance of one happening anytime soon
It is every two weeks I think.
Bridge Spam? Sigh… Nice Guide YxIz or something.
new poll : which common card do you hate the most when it’s overleveled? I hate minion horde and eb’s.
I think knight and goblin gang
i’ve used both those two :v
lol i use both in my deck (log bait)
i hate the same cardss as you
ebarbs, minion horde, royal giant, goblins, and the most is zap
Zap or RG
I honestly don’t know
Minion horde and RG less then the ebarbs
tie between ebarbs and minion horde
Ebarbs, rg and min horde
I’d say Minions
Hey smough I know you really want to meet me but what would my parents say if some random guy who’s probably 2 years older than me just comes in and asks to see their son because he knows him from a website talking about a game they don’t even know about?
btw, where do you live?
I’ve got an EWiz, and found it sucks when underleveled
U need like a level 3 e wiz in challenger 1!
Underleveled doesn’t have a meaning for a legendary card :/
It’s at most lvl3 but it would be too hard for a F2P
thats 1 reason i prefer ice wiz, its more f2p friendly
:v IWiz is lvl dependent too, but not that need
thats why i said MORE f2p friendly…
yeah ik, but i said it becuz i hate overleveled witch
same, witch is imo #4 most annoying card to face when overleveled, behind ebarbs, furnace, and minion horde
Furnace overleveled isn’t that annoying. Minion horde is annoying if your arrows can’t 1shot level 13 minions. Ebarbs are trash
A lone hog is what people usually send as a first move
Pekka push isn’t that hard to counter since she appeared close to the bridge, which means your support isn’t enough to protect her from inferno stuffs, swarms, or even another pekka
By the time you’ve dropped your pekka and cleaned up the hog you’ll have at least 5 elixer to play around with which imo is more than enough to effectively counter an inferno tower, I mean all you have to do is zap…
ok, i’m sure that ITower isn’t enough to counter pekka
but what about IDragon? the only effective counter there is EWiz, which costs 4, and you wouldn’t have enough to counter swarms, and sometimes an Ice Golem
You have Battle Ram, which you can place behind PEKKA after Inferno Dragon locks on it, and then zap swarm units and Inferno Dragon for a bucketload of damage!
Ok thankyou, someone who actually sounds like they know how to play the game!!
What arena r u in?
Arena 11 at 4400 trophies
Wow u have like 300 less trophies than me on my first account, but 1300 more than my second account!
Mate, just asking, are you in arena 7 or 8 or something like that coz in higher tier arenas, they support hog, mainly using ice spirit, goblins or ice golem
ok, sorry to make up this mess
but the way you say ‘just asking’ made it a BM lol
And i think this deck can’t be ‘bridge spam’ if you use the pump instead of a fast winning condition like Ram or Hog, and ice golem+bats/goblins synergies better with this deck than ice spirit+minions
wow same age as me
Not same age as me
I outranked you I’m 11… wait?
nah, sorry man, i’m wrong
Why do people still make b.s. decks?
Like??? In CR arena, none of the decks are bad, except the recent Giant Sparky one
Don’t know but I still see bat ram,and bandit evrywhere
It’s coz battle ram is still good if played properly, but is the worst if not
bats got buffed
Bat ram is battle ram not bats and battle ram -_-
Nope the deck was actually pretty good.
But it’s only that people watch if there are meta cards in it, if there isn’t they automatically say it’s bad. so please stop hating
I put baby dragon in my deck 🙁 and tombstone
True dat, it was a great guide ! But it doesn’t work at my trophy range, so maybe that’s why I think it’s bad! Maybe it’s great at your range, so sorry!
Sorry didn’t mean it like that :), but yea i didn’t try it so idk, but i thought you called it bad just cuz it was completely off-meta
You forgot the hog canon cart
It wasn’t that bad
Well some,but still WHY??????
If ur talking about giant sparky… IDK
Ain’t talking about giant sparky
Then I don’t know why you think the decks are b.s
Coz one deck might be good for someone, but bad for another
Bs is bridge spam lol
To be honest, it’s not. Bridge spam is still seen in the Challenger 2-3 region and people use it very well!
You have offended me, SparknadoFTW, AxureFangs, and SparkyIsLife with one comment
Sorry, coz I really don’t like Sparky! She shouldn’t be fully reset by E wiz, then she would be AMAZING!
Im 13 and still at arena 9 ;(
Where;s ur email???
will is smart
He is too smart for us
I guess so
dont show your email to random people it isnt smart
the deck is basically same as the popular ranker’s deck, except gobs replaced with ice spirit. but I love how you can just change it all you want!
probably, I’m 12 btw
He’s everywhere, he can see us anytime, he’s god in here
what is megaloon? I’ve never seen this deck (megaloon) only chief pat used it! MEGAPEKKA will destroy this deck!
Megaloon is meta in arena 11
No? Im arena 11 (bronze tho…)
Oh i thought it was, maybe it’s in challenges?
Mega loon is like Giant balloon or Lavaloon but with mega knight as the tank instead of Balloon. Great at taking out archers and Wizards/Musketeers
Yea I know but I haven’t seen it in ladder at all!
But still no troop is better than PEKKA, except Inferno Dragon perhaps, at handling Golem
Wow..i am 27
Nice deck! I though Bridge Spam is dead tho…
NOOOOOONONONONONONOOOOOOOO SHUT UP NOOOO ITS NOT NOOOOÖŒÖÕŌÔÒÓŌ
Bridge Spam with Ram is dead, so you’re right there. Dark Prince Bridge Spam is seeing quite a bit of use in Challenge/Tournament play tho.
Isnt it thought?
Yeah, sorry! My English is bad
First reply to the first reply
Dude, just say second reply. It’s easier on our fingers bcuz u don’t have to type sooooo much
You’re not first and not awesome
Dude he said he was second
He’s just good at editing own comments 🙂
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT’S NOT META!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Dude this is the most used Spam deck right now lol
still not meta
Oh my god I thought I won’t see more bridge spam I was so happy until this day
Why do you and @Golem FTW aka Radius both have Radius in your names?
Golem FTW aka Radius and Radius/Trainer Lay is the same person aka me XD
You’ve got to be joking… and I didn’t know this until now XD
Nah you forgot what you have done on CRA Discord? Wasn’t it demoralizing?
Wow my comment is so good I’m proud of myself
So many replies lol
3rd no one claimed
No pointless arguments with @Trainer Lay are allowed on these premises.
But @Golem FTW aka Radius uses Grammarly (he says he is German). He uses it to write better guides than I ever could (yes, I’m being humble here).
1. Golem FTW aka Radius is me
2. I’m Polish, not German. I just can speak German.
3. Yes, I’m using Grammarly
4. Thanks! Your guides are really good so it’s a big compliment!
Sorry for assuming your race, someone told me u were German, but I can’t remember who.
Hey! U wrote “10 Tips on Making Better Guides, and plus you’ve been here longer than me. I’ve only been here for like a couple of months and I already have 11 guides… but you probably have more, and they’ve probably gotten better over time like mine do.
ive been here for over a year an i only have 7 guides posted, and 3 of them got replaced
Please, could every writer on this site just stop using the word(s) self-explanatory? The Electro Wizard doesn’t explain himself. The Bats don’t explain themselves. They deal a good deal of damage among other stuff, but what they don’t do is stop to explain. Besides, you already explained why they are good, as is your job writing this, so well done, don’t spoil it! As a request, explanations about why a card is better for your deck than another are always very welcome. Zap doesn’t tell me why it’s better than Arrows here – you’ll have to do the explaining. Even if it might seem trivial to you, it won’t be for every reader.
People do self explanatory probably because the usage is clear and dont want readers to go TLDR
i agree with this, was thinking the same thing
You are getting featured
I be to differ. Unless the writer isr talking about a card’s specific usage, there’s no point writing something about every card just for the sake of writing. Rather than give a concise description of the card, it reduces the brevity of the whole guide.
If you want to know something about the cards, say the electro wizard, then go to his page. But at this point in the game, considering that you’ve been playing for atleast 3 months, if you STILL don’t know the functions of that card, then you’re not paying attention to the game. If you’re new to the game, then you would need more than just one line on a card, and would more probably go to the specific page. Hope you got my point!
4th no one claimed
hahaha i posted 1 seconds b4 you did but incase you did… claim 5th!
I did it first you should claim fifth instead
I’m below you (which means I’m first)
it says im below you posted
I guess we posted at the same time?
yea we are both awesome
what a coincidence
ikr i legit clicked post and your popped up
4th no one claimed? nad great guide
We both are fourth
First time ever happened in CRA
yes. its a world record
these arguements are for the discord or another chat not in deck comment sections. its pointless spAm
nice improvement to my guide
Sorry but thuis deck is old.
yea and bats
There is a typo. It was supposed to say “Lacks a durable anti air troop.”
This is my 11th guide after all.
whaaaa? i had 7 posted and 3 of them got replaced…
How many of u guys watched the video that came along with the guide?
Damn it late again. Also, Mjner? there’s a typo there.
5th no one claimed
Noice deck! I stopped using bridge spam after I overcame royal arena tho (I went double prince).
double prince is the og bridge spam
I agree Wutuplolz, it would be boring to read the same stuff over and over again. But every card is a choice, and there’s always at least some thinking behind it, or there should be. Getting an insight on those thoughts would be valuable. There’s always something to write about. “Zap is here because otherwise this deck couldn’t deal with infernos and they’ll give you hell”, or whatever.
And no Radioactive(?), I don’t think me writing the next one would magically make every other writer stop it. I’d like to write though, it’s just that I don’t consider myself good enough at this game yet, which is why I very much appreciate explanations about strategic choices.
Anyway, sorry about the sarcastic tone, just got irritated a bit from reading the same thing for the 40th time, that’s all. 🙂
what kind of deck is LH
oh duh thx
Bridge Spam might make a comeback…
I have seen a lot of bridge spam similer to this deck to this deck in Hog Mountain so maybe.
technically bridge spam is still meta, but in a different way, last bridge spam was bandit, night witch, and battle ram. this metas bridge spam is hog, mega knight, bandit, and maybe cannon cart and dank prince
bridge spam will never die unless bandit gets nerfed pretty hard
Bandit doesn’t need nerf …it will make her UP
great deck like usual bro
It isn’t his deck…better comment great guide
Can I substitute dark prince for hog rider?
It’s best to not do that. Even if your Dark Prince is underleveled, just use the normal Prince instead. Although, you may need to switch the Pump for a Ice Spirit if u do that.
as of now, beatdown and control are tied. go beatdown!
control is 1 more than beatdown…
This deck will die to any sort of deck with a lot of air…overall a good guide though.
If u want, check the Substitutions section for viable options for anti air defense!
That’s actually untrue.
Older deck right?
Its OK too put PEKKA in the back as then you can form a beat down push with bridge spam cards
only with an elixir advantage usually though
No, not really. Then they can punish you as they please using their threat cards on the opposite lane, rendering your P.E.K.K.A useless. That and any Elixir you have.
I mean….. It’s awesome! (I use pekka bridge) but plz don’t make it meta…. PLZ!
No offense taken. And I didn’t mean it to be personal either, but as a criticism for all writers on this site – apologies to Supermarine that it happened to be your guide I lashed out at, I hope you weren’t demoralized, I did like the guide otherwise!
I’d say it’s more Pekka control than pure bridge spam
Stop. Please. Don’t. No.No.No. [insert here a nonoono cat sound]
all around me your familliar faces…
