The Lava Barrel deck! The deck that consisted of the Lava Hound and Goblin Barrel is the deck that we will discuss today.


First of all, just to say hi. I just hope you are all having a great time today because we are entering the weekend mate! Yeah.

Okay, enough. Let’s just check this simple deck

Lava Barrel Deck:

Average Elixir Cost: 3.4


Play This Deck

Like what you see above, I think this deck is quite a simple deck. It consists of some of the most familiar cards that you have seen from starting to play the game.


Minions Card-Clash-Royale-Kingdomarrows-clash-royale-kingdom

Spear Goblins is one of my favorite cards in Clash Royale. They are cheap yet they offer so much in a battle. Their versatility to deal with the air and ground while can creating damage is the thing you need in this deck.

Minions would be our swarm army. The same as the Spear Goblins, we would use their versatility to attack or just to defend our tower.

Arrow then is our spell card to wash all the cheap cards. Goblins, Skeletons or Minions. They are all finished with this card.


Knight is the cheapest tank card in the game. He can tank everyone behind him by absorbing the enemy’s attack. Using him as a defender, he is also fine with that.

Archer is our pushing card. Both of the girls will team up to help our pushing later on using their arrow.

Bomber creates the splash damages. Then it is great to put him on the deck. His bomb throwing will be effective again to help the push and to wash the swarm army upfront.

Our two main cards to destruct the enemy’s tower. Lava Hound is the best air tank. His powerful hitpoints make him can absorb the enemy’s attack while keep flying to a tower. And that’s why he is a legendary card anyway.

Goblin Barrel then as you know a card that can be thrown right away to the targeted tower. Then it is what we’d do. To throw them right on the targeted tower and create a chance of them to crush it down.


Early Minutes

In the early minute, it is important to know what your enemy’s cards first. This is important to know what is to do during the battle.

Deploy the Lava Hound right away is fine. We would try to see what the enemy’s cards to counter the flying Lava. Do they have a swarm army or a great card to counter our Lava Hound.

After this, you would know what to do next to help the Lava Hound create the next push. You have cards like Minions, Spear Goblin or Archer which are versatile enough to deal with the enemy’s counter.

See what enemy’s response to the Hound 

Last Minute – Sudden Death

In the last minute then it is time to do our main combination. It’s time to do the Lava Barrel. Deploy the Lava Hound just in front of your princess tower.

Let him fly to the targeted tower. If your enemy has a great counter to him like the swarm army be ready with your arrow.

In this push, you can accompany him with Archer or Bomber to help him reach the targeted tower. The double elixir time would help you to cycle the deck easily.

This time just keep deploying to overwhelm the enemy. The moment your push is reaching near the targeted tower then time to unleash the Goblin Barrel.

Throw them to finish it. You can’t forget that Lava Hound still has his pups once he is dismissed that are ready to finish the game.

Throw and a tower down


You maybe have seen this combination before but here we try to give you an alternative with these cheap cards which would help you to cycle the deck easier.

And that’s all I have for this Friday, mate. As usual, you are free to speak your mind if you have something to say in the comment section down below.

Coffee and Weekend time! See you next time, cheers!
