Best Deck For Each Arena
Welcome to Clash Royale deck building guide which will show you the best performing decks for all arenas, from Goblin Stadium to the Legendary Arena, including all the league arenas above that. Choosing a good deck is all about choosing cards which give a good balance of attack and defense. You need cards which can give strength going forward as well as ones which can take down big troops like giants or golems.
Throughout the games your main focus should always be building up elixir and making trade-offs which give you more elixir than your opponent. For example, say he plays a hog rider which costs 4 elixir, and you counter with a cannon in the middle which costs 3 - you are 1 elixir up on your opponent. Note that it can also be efficient to lose elixir if it benefits you with a card. For example, say your opponent plays a hog rider and you play a minion horde. Then you are one elixir down and may have taken a hit to your tower, but you now have 6 minions going forward and he has nothing but a 1 elixir advantage.
I will now give the best decks for each arena as well as how to win as many games as possible with strategies for each deck.
Best Clash Royale Deck for Arena 1 - Goblin Stadium
How to use the Arena 1 best deck
This deck is a standard arena 1 deck with a good balance of cheap and effective cards. You should start the game by cycling through cheap cards and countering your opponent until you get the chance to place down your goblin hut in the middle of your side. Then with it constantly building pressure you should aim to build a push using your knight, prince and baby dragon as your 3 main tanks, only 1 or 2 of these cards is needed as well as some support from the goblins and the bomber.
The fireball gives strength against strong units and there are plenty of AOE (Area of effect) troops here to take out multiple troops at once.
Best Deck For Arena 2
Using the Arena 2 - Bone Pit Deck
This deck changes a bit but the same starting strategy is there - work towards getting your goblin hut down and then build a push with your giant. You can build up strong support with the baby dragon and musketeer, and your balloon can be placed down late to give that final blow! This deck is great for Arena 2 and can even get you to Arena 5 if you upgrade your cards!
Best Arena 3 - Barbarian Bowl Deck
How to use the Arena 3 deck
This deck builds on the same principles as before, build up a push with your giant and support it with the right troops. Now you have a bit more defensive ability with your valkyrie and bomber, as well as archers giving a sizable damage boost against aerial units. This deck will easily defeat most players in Arena 3.
Arena 4 Deck for Clash Royale - P.E.K.K.A's Playhouse
Using the P.E.K.K.A's Playhouse Deck
This deck takes a turn from the previous ones now with a massive powerhouse in the mini pekka and valkyrie coupling with the damage of the minion horde. This deck has so much damage and a great boost of defensive ability. It will be hard to lose with this deck in the lower arenas. Again begin the game by countering your opponent and then looking for an opening with your giant!
Best CR Deck for Spell Valley - Arena 5
How to use the Spell Valley Deck
Using this deck is a bit of a learning curve as we now have the x-bow and the hog rider. The hog rider is perhaps the best attacking card. His speed and ability to only attack buildings make him a great troop to use. Couple him with the AOE of the baby dragon or the poison spell and you have a great attack on your hands. The x-bow can be used defensively as well as offensively and can be put into use while the hog rider attacks down the opposite lane!
The Best Deck for Arena 6 - Builder's Workshop
Using the Builder's Workshop Deck
Now we have a wizard which can give a major defensive bonus as well as the tesla tower which can defend against alot of offensive troops. The rage spell couples amazingly with the prince and wizard and should be used when you have a lot of troops in one area. The zap spell starts to become a major part of most decks from now on and is very versatile at getting rid of large amounts of weak troops as well as resetting damage done on inferno towers, and slowing down enemy troops for a split second.
Arena 7 Best Deck - Royal Arena
How to use the Royal Arena deck
This deck goes back to the early arenas and becomes more effective now as you level them up. Presumably your giant is a higher level now as he featured in most previous decks. Use him as an anchor in your attacks and support him. Make use of the rage spell to give your attacks more power and use the tornado spell to take incoming troops away. You can also use tornados to drag hog riders away from your small towers onto your main one, where the main tower will then take damage and become active!
Arena 8 Best Deck - Frozen Peak
How to use the Frozen Peak deck
Now you need to be smarter with your gameplay. Beating opponents now comes down to narrower margins and you need to make good trade-offs to win. Use your elite barbarians as the powerhouse of the deck. Support with the dark knight gives a good way of dealing with multiple enemies as his mace can clear out a large area. The battle ram can hit hard if it reaches your oponents tower and the other units are as standard!
Arena 9 - Jungle Arena - Best Deck
How to use the Jungle Arena deck - Arena 9
Using this deck is quite easy. Just use your cards defensively and when you know your opponent is down on elixir jab at them with your hog or elite barbarians. Every card in this deck apart from the hog rider is a strong defensive card. Focus on countering your opponent then using your cards as a mini push to go with a hog or elite barbarians!
Best Deck For Hog Mountain, Legendary Arena and Up 3000+ Trophies
The Best Deck In Clash Royale
This deck is officially my favourite deck and the one I use (currently on 4,800 trophies). Upgrading all these cards from here on out is key and maxing out all cards would give you, in my opinion, the strongest deck in the game. The ice wizard is a card you should have by now but if not, save up for him in the shop and buy him. Use the hog as the focal point and support as normal. This deck is strong against air and ground units and you should be able to get to however many trophies you want with this deck!
