Card Roles

X-bow: X-Bow will be your defense and offense in the game. It is very strong when paired with the Giant and Hog Rider.
Giant: Giant will be your meat shield and will be protecting your Hog Rider in the push.
Hog Rider: The Hog Rider will be dropped behind the Giant so the Giant can move faster and when the Giant dies, the Hog Rider will still deal massive damage.
Skeleton Army: The Skeleton Army will be used for protecting the X-Bow and your towers from cards such as the Barbarians, Elite Barbarians, Miners, and other troops.
Arrows: The Arrows will be used to permanently kill the Minion Horde and protect it from your X-Bow since the X-Bow can't hit air troops.
Zap: Zap must be used for eliminating the Skarmy when someone deploys it on either the X-Bow, Crown Tower, or the Giant and Hog Rider. Also used for resetting Sparky, Prince, Minion Horde, etc.
Musketeer: Musketeer is a decent 4 elixir ranged troop with high damage, moderate health, and your shot against Balloons and Lava Hounds.
Minions: Minions are your cheap way of eliminating slow attacking troops such as the Mini P.E.K.K.A.or troops that can't attack air.


  • Hog Rider + Minions
  • Hog Rider + Zap
  • Musketeer + Giant + Zap
  • Giant + X-Bow + Arrows
  • Hog Rider + X-Bow
  • Musketeer + Hog Rider + Zap
  • Place the Giant at the back and wait for it to slowly gain 10 elixir again, the place the Hog Rider behind the Giant and place the X-Bow at the same side. Get Zap or Arrows ready in case. Now your opponent has to chose over countering the Giant Hog Rider or the X-Bow. Use the Skarmy if your opponent uses Barbs or Elite Barbs to attack the X-Bow.
