  • Lava Hound and Balloon– The Tanker plays the vital role in taking the damage by opponents and letting other units move ahead for damage.

It should be deployed when the Lava Hound has crossed the river. The Balloon takes down all the air units.
  • Minion Hordes: Set of six air attackers. They are strong enough to take down the Crown Tower.A big supporter to the tank Lava Hound it can wreak strong damage once it reaches the opponent tower.
  • Skeleton Army: Low elixir troop that takes enough damage to tanks like Giant. Use the swarm as a distraction and let the strong troops march ahead.
  • Fireball: Nothing can escape the wrath of this spell with its high damage. Once you do significant health damage to the opponent units like Giant with Minion Hordes and Skeleton army just use fireball and you can take them out entirely

The Lava Hound is a massive HP tank. It will bring an unstoppable push. As the Lava Hound is a heavy elixir troop make a combo with the low elixir troops like minions.

  • Lava Hound – The tanker will give a big push and will handle huge damage and will protect the low elixir troop to march for the Tower damage.
  • Minions  Hordes– An air unit that will take down the ground as well as air units.
  • Miner – this works for your Lava pups. Take your Lava Hound to the top of the tower and drop a Miner on Lava Hound and you will see the opponent tower taken out with ease.
  • Arrows – A splash damager will take out the swarms easily that do health damage to your troops.
  • Lightning – Will blaze the opponents and will halt the attack.
  • Skeleton Army – Chose them to compensate for the Lava Hound elixir weight. They do good health damage to the tanks and then you can take out them with the cannon.
  • Mega Minion – Stronger flying troop than minions make high damages to the opponents
  • Cannon – stands near your tower to protect it from any short range attacker.

Strategy: The major damage in this deck is the Lava Hound. Deploy it as soon as your elixir bar is high.  Revolve the deck around the Lava hound and the low elixir supporting troops to make a killer deck.
