Average Elixir Cost : 3.5
A skeleton aviator is the one who can make your enemy base as Hiroshima all over again.
The damage it deals is just incredibly high.
Whenever your enemy sees your balloon, they tend to kill it first.
Here’s your main job, you have to make sure your lava is the one who takes all the damage from your enemy troops.
Let’s just say the husband is lava, and the wife is the balloon. Who wants their wife touched by others?
See how they collaboratively counter together
Wizard or Baby dragon (optional)
The cards are so helpful to go against swarm armies such as the goblins, the minions, the skeletons and the bats.
Sometimes your enemy will try to get rid of your husband and wife with their rats.
You might want to consider using a card that can deliver an average splash damage like the wizard or baby dragon.
This guy range is not so short like the baby dragon, though.
He has medium-ranged with moderate health points and damage.
It’s just worth it to deploy in supporting the lava-loon deck.
you need at least one damage dealer to complete the tornado action
Next, we have dart goblin. Dart goblin will be easily handle the inferno tower since it has fast hit and ability to hit from distance.
I recommend you to pick dart gobs because for most times the enemy will pick inferno tower in the deck.
With inferno standing, our attacking will be so hard and our lava and balloons will die before they can reach the enemy’s tower.
Having the dart goblin will be so beneficial if you face against inferno tower.
Fire Spirit and Skeletons
The last but not least is the fire spirit.
This is actually optional but I recommend you this because it deals with area, ground and air, it’s cheap, and sure it can handle the enemy’s number troops pretty easy.
The most common troops that counter lava loon is minion or minion horde,
By having fire spirit in your deck, it will blow all the minions and let your balloon passes through.
Spell Cards (Optional)
This spell card functions to retarget the enemy.
When your balloon and lava fly side by side and the enemy’s troops hit the balloons, not the lava which is not what we want, you can zap the enemy.
They will retarget from shooting the balloon to the lava.
So, the balloon will be out of enemy’s target and be able to pass through to drop the massive bomb on enemy’s tower over times.
Zap can also function to restart the enemy’s card which has charge ability such as inferno tower, which is a common card used in the advance battle.
Charge ability means hitting with increasing damage point.
So, when your lava is in the inferno’s target, you zap the inferno, and it won’t hit lava with increasing damage point. Another function of zap is to execute the minions or minion horde which can be a real problem for our balloon.
Fireball an tornado as spell option
