This is the new Pekka Sparky beat down deck. You might know already about this great combo matchups in Clash Royale. Pekka beat down deck with Sparky turns out to be a superb and deadly counter combo, and beat any deck. Let’s talk about strategy and the deck matchups that is considered the most suitable deck matchups.


Hey there, you are here with me again JohnnyBoy. And today, we will talk specifically how to counter with Pekka and Sparky at once in one countering line. Also, by the end of the article, I will show you a video gameplay showing how to apply the strategy in real battle, alright, let’s go!

First thing I wanna to talk about is how synergy Pekka and Sparky is. If we have these 2 cards on the ground, it’s a great pressure for the enemy. Because they have to shut Sparky before the machine shoots, and at the same time, they need to distract Pekka, so she won’t get closer to the tower.

Of course, in playing with Pekka and Sparky, we need area dealers. There would be 2 area dealers in this Pekka Sparky beat down deck, to make this real beat down. Let’s see what we have here.

Play This Deck

As I said, if we want to make this deck a real beat down, we need strong protection for Pekka and Sparky. Because you know, they both are so weak against swarmy and distraction.


So, we have Valkyrie which will be in the front row of the countering line and Wizard on behind. I prefer Valkyrie because she deals area damage and most importantly, she has high HP. When you face Skeleton Army or Goblin Gang, don’t worry because you have strong Valkyrie in front.

Another significant role of Valkyrie is that she can be a damage receiver for the rest of troops behind her. Use her to be a tiny tank in both defense and counter.

It seems like we have two sides protection for Pekka and Sparky as we have Wizard behind. Wizard will specifically cover the counter line up from the air units. Of course, we need one troop to deal air area damage. So, don’t worry if enemy sends Bats or Minion Horde to defend against us.


Next card is Dart Goblin. This one is fastest shooter and none of his calibre really. In defense, you wanna need Dart Goblin to give sustained DPS on every incoming troops. Shooting from a distance makes him invisible and safe from any damage.


Another shooter is Spear Goblins. Although have small damage, but Spear Goblins can give additional damage while we defend.

Despite its cheap elixir cost, Spear Goblins can be the first defender that we launch to hold troops such as Bandit and Prince. This one is good for distraction and cycling card.

To make this deck a real beat down deck, we need one steady building as additional tower. I highly recommend you to pick Tesla tower.

Tesla will hit on every single troops that come to our lane and be the first distraction, especially if you face against building targeting card such as Balloon, Battle Ram, Hog Rider, etc. We can combine Tesla tower with Wizard or Valkyrie in order to make a stronger defense.


Lastly, we have Zap. No matter what, I really recommend you to have Zap if you play with troops such as Pekka and Sparky. Although we have 2 area dealers already, we still need to prepare this spell to anticipate unwanted distraction.

The enemy could separate Pekka by distracting it first, and at the same time they could kill the area dealer. And after the area dealer die, enemy can send either ground or air swarmy to shut Pekka. This is my personal experience, and I share this to you so you won’t get the unwanted distraction same as me.

Alright, that’s enough for the card elaboration, now let’s get into the strategy battle.

What to do in early game?

In early game, I rarely combine Pekka and Sparky due to expensive elixir cost. So, I prefer to play both cards separately.

But, we better play defensively first. In defending at early game, we can play defensive Sparky or Pekka. Then, go on counter push with cheap cards.


In early battle, play defensively with Sparky

If possible, you can counter push with Wizard to join either Sparky or Pekka. But, in my experience, that will be so hard due to elixir spending.

Use Tesla as additional building for defense, and combine it with Wizard or Valkyrie. That would be depending on what comes to your lane. If the troops are quite have, send Valkyrie first and combine it with the goblins. Then, you include Wizard.


Combine Tesla and Wizard with this positioning

And if the troops are small and not massive, you can just send Spear Goblins and Dart Goblins. Here, we really mind the elixir spending guys, don’t be too overcommit, or you will never be able to deploy Pekka or Sparky.

What to do in late game?

When you enter 2x elixir, you can run the combo Pekka Sparky beat down.

Start the counter by playing defensive Pekka. Then, you send Wizard behind her. At this state, you are actually having a synergy counter combo. And to make it a real beat down, you add Sparky behind all counter troops.

That will be enough, and after Sparky, you can send light troops, Dart Goblin and Spear Goblins. Lastly, play your zap!

This is what to do in 2x elixir, everything starts with defensive Sparky

You can see the video that I’m gonna be showing you soon, and you’ll understand how easy it is to play this deck. Easy might be relative on the enemy, but for most of the times, I find it easy. And also, you can play it flexibly.

There is another alternative way to run Pekka Sparky. Start with defensive Sparky first, then after elixir gets enough, deploy Pekka to counter push.

Herewith, I attach a short video gameplay from challenge showing how we counter and defense in this Pekka Sparky beat down deck. Every great counter starts from great defense, and this is it. Enjoy!


If you want to play with Pekka but don’t know how to synergize her into a great combo, you might wanna try this one. Combination of Pekka and Sparky is actually popular in Clash Royale, but what makes this deck is so different because you have greatest and strongest defense line up. Play this deck, go figure, and you’ll thank me later.
