The meta is always changing within Clash Royale and for the 18th time, we have the new best deck within Clash Royale! This deck is a giant-mini PEKKA-ice wizard deck, centered around the two new cards that were buffed in the latest balance changes update! Here is some gameplay and strategy around the best deck in Clash Royale right now, a giant-mini PEKKA-ice wizard deck!
Giant-Mini PEKKA-Ice Wizard Deck Overview
Two of the cards in this deck were majorly buffed in the latest balance changes which is why the mini PEKKA and ice wizard are the namesake of this giant beatdown deck! The giant is obviously going to be your main tank here, filling a big spot for 5 elixir that can do damage and protect troops. The mini-PEKKA is going to be a great card on defense, but if you can get it to the tower, it will be able to unload some major damage there! Last of the three naming card, the ice wizard is just going to be an all around great player, working well on defense and as a support card to the giant. Remember, he has increased damage, so he will be able to really take out any defending troops!
We also have three other great support/defensive troops within this meta deck. Let’s start with the musketeer, which is one of the most solid and dependable cards in Clash Royale. She can work wonders in behind the giant, also being able to be subbed for the ice wizard very easily. Since we don’t have a lot of splash damage in this deck, the princess is going to fill that role, acting as chip damage and support against the goblin gang, skeleton army, and minion horde. Last of the support units is the ice spirit, which can be played at any time, either on offense or on defense to help you benefit from its stun time.
The last two cards in this giant-mini PEKKA-ice wizard deck aren’t troops but they are just as important. Since you are rocking a giant deck, it only makes sense to have an elixir collector in there, helping generate more elixir when you really need it. Secondly, we also have the zap, which is a great card to include in any deck, due to its ability to kill weak and cheap troops, along with giving you a half second stun!
Pumping Up with Elixir Collectors
As with all beatdown decks featuring collectors, it is important to use them to gain a big elixir advantage so that you can afford to build up big pushes that will take out whole towers at once. Ideally, you are going to want to have two elixir pumps up by the time double elixir rolls around so that you can afford to build a game-ending push.
If you have two elixir collectors down, you’ll be able afford defense and offense at the same time which is the key to win battles in Clash Royale!
Depending on the Mini PEKKA and Ice Wizard
The reason why this deck is the most meta deck for this week in Clash Royale is because of the recent buffs to the mini PEKKA and the ice wizard. Because both of these cards have been buffed so much to become almost OP, you are really going to have to depend on them, both on defense and as support cards. First off, you want to use the mini PEKKA to take out big tank units, such as the golem or giant skeleton.
As for the ice wizard, you should use him to support your giant, so that he can defend against flying units, while also slowing them from killing your giant. The slowing aspect is the best part of the ice wizard, but his increased damage also makes him great for killing troops.
Countering the Best Decks
In order to win with any deck, you still need to know how to counter the most popular decks and combos with Clash Royale at the moment. Here are 4 of the most popular combos right now and how you can beat them with this deck.
Hog Ice Wizard- For the first time, the two buffed units will come in clutch! Just play both the mini PEKKA and the ice wizard to attack the hog; the enemy ice wizard won’t do too much damage.
Golem-Baby Dragon- Because the mini PEKKA deals so much damage, it is actually pretty easy to take the golem out. In this push, you just want to overload your opponent with your support card (musketeer, ice wizard, mini PEKKA)
LavaLoonion- There are 3 (4 if you count the ice spirit) air countering troops in your deck, so taking out LavaLoonion isn’t too difficult, especially when one of your support cards slows down the entire push!
X-Bow- X-Bow has been on the rise ever since the latest balance changes and it is usually combined with the mega minion. To beat this combo, all you need is a mini PEKKA for the X-Bow, a musketeer for the mega minion, and an ice spirit to stop the whole thing.
That is going to wrap it up for this week’s edition of the most meta deck in Clash Royale! I hope that you guys enjoyed this article and can use this deck to help you win out there on the ladder. Thanks for reading and comment down below what deck you are currently using in Clash Royale!
