Best Tips for Sudden Death Challenge
The opponent plays tank at the back or Elixir Collector?
Use these cards (combos)
In this challenge, it is recommended playing a deck that can punish and is unlikely to get punished.
Contain one of the troop/combos above in your deck to deal especially with 3M decks etc.You will want to capitalize on your opponent’s mistakes and misplays to dish out as much damage as possible.
How to for defense after playing a high Elixir card?
Lets say you decide to play beatdown and drop a Giant in the back, you will ideally need cards to defend your other lane if your opponent rushes with something like Battle Ram + Bandit combo above.
Ultimately, you will have to stick with the deck type you are good at. So try to use the deck built with the mind-set above, that you will always get a punishment push after playing a heavy card.
For example, use Minions to bait out Arrows then use Minion Horde! This allows you to form a counterpush with a Giant and still marching down your lane.
How to counter the meta Decks?
Consider using some of these cards in your deck
Hog, Balloon and Mega Knight decks will be very popular in this Challenge, for sure.
Now you will need answers for these Meta cards.
For an example, you should carry an Inferno Dragon as an answer for these tanks. Along with a Fireball/Poison for the E-wiz, which is used reset your Inferno Dragon.
Use decks with an awareness for cards you will face. Below I will list out some cards you ought to keep in mind when including cards in your deck.
1 Win Condition is not enough! Use at least 1 more!
Remember that, even If you get your opponent’s Tower to 200 HP, you could still lose the game because you don’t have a direct damage spell. If you have Zap, you need 4 Zaps to take that Tower out!
This is why you should use at least 1 more win condition.
Use Spell Cycling when needed. If you use 3 Musketeers deck, you could use Miner as the 2nd win condition (Miner + Zap usually can do a few hundreds of damage). Rocket is also great choice in this challenge.
Are Expensive Decks Okay?
Control and Chip decks would work better than Beatdown decks in this Challenge.
This is simply because beatdown requires large commitments and using Tower HP as a resource, which is not an ideal mind-set to go into the sudden-death game!
Decks like Log bait in my eye will dominate with the pocket Rocket, allowing them to bottle up and defend after a certain point.

Some More Battle Tips for the Challenge!
Here are some things you must know before playing the challenge!
Do not let any Tower down!
Quite literally you can’t afford more than 6 Rockets on a Tower.
Be aware of your opponent’s cycle when making plays
For an example, take a note of your opponent’s Fireball/Rocket whenever you play Wizards/Executioner/Witches. This allows you to know whether you should play thecard behind a Tower or simply in front so they can’t spell them at the Tower it once.
Elixir advantages are really the key in this Challenge.
You can respond with something really cheap while tanking a bit of damage. This will also allow you to punish more efficiently.
For example, use Bats on the Wizard after your tower tanks 2 hits from the Wizard rather than dropping say a Knight for only a +2 trade.
Always have the specific counters in our hand
Maybe a Goblin Barrel in your opponent’s deck? Just keep that card in mind and then count cards. They drop 4 cards and they will be back at the Goblin Barrel! Hold your counters to the Barrel until they play it.
With the help of Blaze Stone
Anyone can make a deck without Electro Wizard or Mega Knight. I don’t have cards for it. What legendaries is good for this challenge. Currently I have Princess, Bandit, Inferno Dragon, Miner, Lumberjack, Sparky, Lava Hound, Ice Wizard, and The Log.
I’m 6-1 with Bait
Lumberloon freeze (clone may be)
I did that I didn’t do great but it’s probably just me not the deck
Use classic log bait
I already got 10 wins lol
Wow! I am only missing 5 cards and you just named 3 of them! Wow!
I’m sick of that the only way to beat the challenges is with miner, mega knight, Bandit, Lumberjack, and/or Princess.
may have not been first, but nobody else claimed it! (this is the first article on clash royale arena ive seen without the first comment actually saying first)
Beat the challenge 12-0 first try using a hog freeze deck: hog, freeze, zap, ice spirit, mini pekka, goblins, bats, princess. Trick is to play very aggressively with the hog rider and freeze combo, but unless you can take the tower with one hog, ALWAYS play goblins or bats behind the hog before you freeze. This way these squishy units can take out defensive troops played on your hog while they are frozen.
Well deck looks damn good theoretically. However, freeze requires rather precise timing especially with a card like hog. And freeze as a surprise will be better I feel and aggressive cycle play with hog.
So i guess by not being able to deploy freeze in time, it is not an aggressive play.
I play log bait on ladder btw so this is not my home turf – shows how well it works
2nd after repost
sorry i claimed it tee hee
Here’s my deck that I’m using. I’m 6-1 so far.
Never heard of that deck before you should make a guide on it
original log bait with bats
I was being sarcastic lol
So it’s basically the original log bait but with bats instead of ice spirit
I was never good at this. If people could help me play one deck suggested, that be great.
3rd after repost
i already claimed 3rd tee hee
I literally used the original Vietnam bridge spam deck xD
WOW, did it work out for you well? The battle ram and night witch aren’t as good anymore
I went 12-2 so yeah, I’d say it worked out!
Nice! What’s your trophie range?
I’m usually hovering around 4500 ish
Lol yea, NW got nerfed to obliviation
I used spell Bait
omg just faced exenado (I used golem bandit)…. XD he wasted like 20 elixir waiting for my mega golem push come to his side and he exenadoed me…. BUT I had like 20 elixir advantage so I made another mega push on the left and reked him
I went 6-3, but that’s not the worst part, the worst part was getting my 4th night witch (which to me is useless rn)
u should still appreciate it, its still a legendary (feel my pain with lava hound AND miner lvl 2 and 3/4
Well you like using miner… I’m not a big fan of the NW
me neither but mine is lvl 2 (on my good acct, its lvl 1 on my bad acct) and im not much of a beatdown player
Ended with a 4-3. Those three losses are bologna. Nothing I can do. I can gurantee I made no mistakes.
I went 10-3 on my lvl 9 acct
My sd chest gave me my 4th night witch >:(
I used hog exenado Lightning and got to 10 wins
I was going 4-0 when suddenly my opponents git gud and voila, 4-3
I’m really bad at challenges
just loose the first one on purpose, makes life easier
4th after repost
I used Hog Rocket, but out in musketeer instead of rocket, and got 6 wins, because I had lag in 2 battles.
I used a heavy deck.
I made huge counter pushes with the PEKKA and cycle through rockets.
irrelevant, but I’m a win away from 4k club!
just reached 4k!!! so happy right now
nice! i just reached 4k as well!
I’m in legendary trying to get a level 8 mega minion before I push again
yeah difference between lvl 7 and lvl 8 rare is pretty big
I’m 4 wins from legendary arena
hope you make it
5th after repost no one claimed!
The ones that worked for me were TNT’s Loon double freeze (Balloon, Ice golem, Megaminion, Goblins, Bats, Freeze, Mirror, Tornado) and quick cycle Graveyard freeze (Graveyard, Freeze, Ice golem, Knight, Archers, Ice spirit, Tesla, Zap). Both decks have counters to hog/loon freeze which is important.
Other decks that were good but didn’t go all the way:
Hog exenado with rocket – 11 wins, 10 wins, gave up
Colton’s Balloon Freeze Clone deck that surgical goblin made a vid on. 10 wins. 10 wins. Gave up.
When you get to 9,10 wins I find a lot of strong counters to hog and loon stops you getting damage in.
I created this based on exactly what I wanted in this deck.
Giant, Balloon- one of the hardest things to counter
Arrows- counter minions
Log- counter log-bait
Fireball- high damage spell
Ice Wiz- Slowing down
E-wiz- Slowing down, counters Inferno Dragon and Inferno Tower
Mini Pekka- Cheap tank killer
THIS IS LITERALLY THE LOG-BAIT KILLER!!! I BEAT ABOUT 4 LOG-BAIT DECKS IN THE CHALLENGE WITH THIS DECK
Basically any deck with 2 light spells can destroy bait…
I used classic log bait for a 9-3 challenge but one of my losses was because I lost connection
Actually in top of ladder i’ve seen actually a lot of hog freeze. so many off meta decks. I even saw BOMB TOWER! Even Hog freeze w pump!
please don’t advertise….
Yee, I’m at the 3700 mark
Pushed really hard to 6 wins, then couldn’t be bothered as I had completed the quest.
