Average elixir cost : 3
While we have a balloon as a damage dealer, mega minion is the best protector for balloons. It is because it has greater single damage compared with other troops and higher HP too. It flies faster and cost lesser elixir if compared with inferno dragon. You can try out the baby dragon, minion horde, or any flying cards. But trust me the meg minion is the right pick for this combo. We need the air tank which can deal damage on troops as well, that’s why we don’t pink lava hound because it only focuses on building.
Seems like, we won’t use inferno dragon due to it costs 4 elixir which is higher than meg minion (3 elixir). Of course, inferno dragon is stronger than meg minion, but we look for the mighty and cheap tank; mega minion. You don’t want to waste your elixir by launching high elixir cards because you already have balloons. Just pick mega minion, and you’ll see how awesome they are together.

Furthermore, we have zap to retarget enemy. It is because when our balloons and mega minion are flying side by side, the enemy’s tower will hit the balloons, not the meg minion. You should retarget the tower by zapping it and let the mag minion be the damage receiver. So, balloons will last longer and be able to drop the bomb more than one. We can zap the enemy’s troops which hit the balloons and retarget them.
Again, the cheapest card on earth can be very useful here. It functions to divert the enemy while we defend our lane. It’s cheap, yet it complicates the enemy.
I replace miner with barrel but still in same strategy
Deploy rage when balloon is still healthy
Strong counter comes from solid defense, right?
