I'm surprised there hasn't been a thread (at least in the Great Library) on Clash Royale. It's been out for a while now, and I recently picked it up again and have been enjoying it since. I was just wondering what strategies and cards you used often and maybe some tips and tricks you might have. I used a deck consisting of Baby Dragon / Goblins / Skeletons / Prince / Balloon / Barbarians / Minion Horde / Arrows because it could take advantage of an opposing misplay and capitalize off of it by doing some major damage on tower with the Prince / Balloon / Minion Horde. I know Prince and Balloon are kinda noob cards, but under the right amount of support they can actually play rather effectively. The goal is to try to get the opponent to drop elixir on one side and then overload the other with Balloon / Prince and some support. For example, I could draw out Skeleton Army / Cannon / Minion horde from the opponent by using a Barbarian then dropping Prince or Balloon on the other side. Unfortunately, it is kind of weak to decks with splash damage such as Wizard, Ice Wizard, Witch, Bomber, and Valkyrie. What I currently use is Hog Rider / Valkyrie / Zap / Musketeer / Cannon / Miner / Goblins / Spear Goblins. This deck plays fairly straightforward, using a pretty simple "core" of Hog Rider, Valkyrie, and Musketeer to support each other and help Hog Rider get on tower. The Miner is also helpful in being a distraction on the tower, allowing Hog Rider and others to deal more damage to it while also dealing some chip damage itself. Zap / Cannon / Goblins / Spear Goblins play more defensively / supportively, but (Spear) Goblins can also help push offensively. I'm hoping this thread can help share strategies, critique decks, and maybe talk about incoming buffs / nerfs that come around every once in a while.
