[14] Clash Royale: Double Elixir Draft Challenge

-Previous Post- (In this category)


Hello everyone, and welcome to NiceGamingAdvice; a blog predominantly about mobile gaming, advice for the games, and updates on how I, DamonDaBoss, am doing in these games! This is the best blog out there for gaming advice, on more than just one game, (Maybe I’m a little biased, be you all know it’s true) and here we like to have fun while we try to help you! Anyway, as you could’ve guessed by the title of this post, today will be about the Double Elixir Draft Challenge in Clash Royale. I was able to win 12 battles in it (but I almost always lose two around my 9th battle, so I always am cautious later on), so I want to give you a little advice and facts about this challenge to better prepare you for it (You never know when it might come back)!

For starters, this challenge will be going on from May 12 – May 15, so if you’re reading this during this time and you somehow didn’t know about it, go battle right after finishing this post! But, if you’re reading this post after these dates, don’t worry, it will most definitely be coming back in the future.

Alright, enough about the times, let’s move onto the actual content you came here for! Oh, and on a side note, I’m entering Clash Royale’s biggest tournament ever to see if I can win some big prizes! I doubt I’ll get too far, but The Crown Championship will be an amazing tournament to watch and participate in nonetheless. Here’s a little schedule about it just in case any of you wanted to learn more. This image, and more information on the special tournament, is/are in the above link! Lastly, this is the actual link I used to apply for the championship tournament. crownchampionship.clashroyale.com



Now here are my chest’s images. I received more gold that I ever could imagine from a free challenge (First try is free, second and so on are worth 100 gems. So, be smart with your spending; make sure it’s worth it! I personally wouldn’t do it again even after winning 12 times, because the reward from the chest itself is only half that of a normal grand challenge (on your second attempt after 12 wins, because all the gold would be taken), yet they’re the same price. I was really happy with the turnout of the challenge, not only because I got 12 wins, but because I went from around 4,000 gold to over 130,000 in just one day. Now off to the advice/tips and tricks that I have to offer.

For me these are the rules, the 3 chooses, I followed by:

  1. Choose cards that, even if you aren’t amazing at using them, you wouldn’t want to have used against you. Personally, I always chose cards such as: The Executioner, Barbarian Hut, Royal Giant, Heal Spell, Balloon, Hog Rider, Inferno Dragon, Sparky, and the Goblin Barrel and Goblin Gang, etc. because I knew they caused me trouble in previous battles, and I know they can be very useful in Challenges because the enemy doesn’t always have a good response to cards like these.
  2. Choose cards that you are good at playing with. If you’re in a challenge and you don’t know what all the cards you’ll get are, choose cards that you know you’re good with. For example, I really like the lava hound, and even if the rest of my deck doesn’t fully go well with the lava hound, I find a way around that in order to get the desired result by the end of the battle (a win).
  3. Choose cards that can respond to/counter the cards you gave to your opponent. One of the most annoying things I’ve done in draft challenges is when I accidentally chose a wrong card, without thinking, which can result in me having no response to a certain card I gave my opponent. An example of choosing the wrong card would be like if you gave the enemy a minion horde, because you wanted the other card in your deck, but then you later have a card like arrows, wizard, fire spirits, fireball, zap, or an executioner pop up, but you choose the bowler or lightning instead and you know you messed up. I mean, there’s always that chance that your opponent gave you one of those cards to counter their minion horde, unintentionally, but never rely on what they might give you; rely on what you’re taking from, and giving, them, so you can respond and form counter pushes and positive elixir trade offs.

When I battled in this challenge, I often didn’t form a massive push in the start, but I usually put a support card in the back, and then responded to what they placed using my double elixir advantage (that they had also) to counter their moves using the least amount of troops as possible.

Tell me your strategies you use in challenges, the rules you follow by, and more in the comment section of this post! As always, don’t forget to like, follow, re-blog, and share NiceGamingAdvice for better content, more content, and posts that YOU want to see! Have a nice day, don’t do anything that I wouldn’t do :), (By all means do whatever you want, it’s your life anyway) and I’ll see you in the next post! Clash on!

{13} Clash Royale Blog Post for Mr. Boss (40th post on NiceGamingAdvice)

-Previous Post- (In this category)

Cory’s First Blog Post! Check out his blog right here to see more of the content he posts weekly on his blog! Also, Mr. Boss is what he refers to me, DamonDaBoss, as. Now, without further ado, here’s his post about Clash Royale.

Don’t you just love Clash Royale? Me too! (Nah I’m kidding, I don’t even play this gameScreenshot_20170424-205707 anymore but I’ll write about it because I have nothing else to write about and since Mr. Boss’ blog is about Clash Royale, I’ll write about Clash Royale. (He’s totally messing with all of you, he actually likes the game deep down! – DamonDaBoss). I started to play Clash Royale I believe March last year. I remember playing on my friend’s account. His name was “moistytoes.” Yep, I know, weird name. He got it when it was first released and I remember playing with the OP prince on his account and I just spammed everything down and hoped to destroy my opponents. When I got the game, I remember my first epic as being a baby dragon. Fast forward to summer, I stopped playing a game, only battling like twice a week or so and I was beginning to get seriously bored of the game. A few months later during Halloween, I finally found my first legendary from the legendary chest I found from battling,(because everyone was finding legendaries so I decided to battle) and I got the graveyard. Pretty spooky right? A graveyard unboxed on Halloween. A few weeks later I bought a legendary chest and got the miner. So these legendaries got me back into Clash Royale, for like a week or two anyway, and then I just stopped playing altogether, occasionally coming on the collect my free chests and request cards. One day just two weeks ago, I nonchalantly opened up the game and sped through my free chests, and I got my first legitimate legendary; the log. I celebrated for a good fifteen seconds then was back to my calm state since I don’t even play this game anymore. This was my first legitimate legendary since the first one I got from a guaranteed legendary from the legendary chest and the second one I bought, which was also guaranteed a legendary. So today I only get on when there is a clan battle event going on. I am currently level 10 with 2869 trophies, which I’ve had since July. I don’t have pictures of the unboxing of the graveyard and the miner because they disappeared into the abyss. Below are pictures of my current deck, which I use for clan battles, and the opening of the log. Screenshot_20170424-205756


[12] Clash Royale: There’s been a few changes

-Previous Post- (In this category)

Hello world, it’s DamonDaBoss here with another Clash Royale post! I know, it’s crazy! Actually, there hasn’t been a Clash Royale post on NGA for some time now, so I thought it’d be appropriate to talk about some new cards, talk about how I’m doing in the game personally, and of course, give you some advice on the game! Today’s post is about… wait never mind I already did that. ANYWAY, let’s get right into the post!

Now, it’s been a long time since my last Clash Royale post, and there’s just so much to talk about so I’ll start from the beginning and summarize the unimportant parts. The last post had an image of the now Hog Mountain, which was actually Legendary Arena when I made that post. Now I technically can say I’ve never been in Jungle Arena (Since I was in the Arena 10 Legendary Arena when it came out) or Hog Mountain (At least ever since it’s been called Hog Mountain, since the moment the new Legendary Arena came out I was put into it based on my trophies; I’ve never dropped into Hog Mountain either).

Anyway, that’s just the arena changes, but here are a few more that I’ve had on my profile. I officially turned into a level 11 this Sunday, which is amazing for me, since I’ve been a level 10 for the longest time now, and it helps a lot with card interactions (health on towers and damage down by towers). This helps especially since more than 90% of the players I go against are level 11 or up (.5% are level 13s, and around 4% are level 12), and and I only battle level 10s around 10% of the time. But even as a level 10, my wins were very high for my level and skill, and I actually would rather battle level 11s because their skill level usually was worse than other “out of the usual arena” players like level 10s. Anyway, my personal high was 4486 trophies, which I got in the last season (the second season with leagues like Challenger 1 and up) in Challenger 2. During that season though, I was gone for a week because of the cruise I recently went on, so I know for a fact that I could’ve gotten to Challenger 3 with my deck, even as a level 10 at the time.


The deck to the left is a picture of my deck prior to my leaving of the cruise, as I’m still a level 10 in the picture, but the deck and levels in it haven’t changed in the slightest. Even in the post I did a long time ago, I believe, I used the same deck, since It’s been steady in all the metas (stages of card uses and declines) and balance changes that the game has had. I actually wanted to change one of the cards in it out for the heal, but I found that my deck works best the way it is, even without using the unpredictable level 7 heal spell that I have. I intend on using this deck until one of the cards, or more, are severely nerfed, and I hope it can take me to 5000 trophies and beyond. The chest I got for the now one month long (it used to be 2 weeks for a season) season chest was only decent, as it didn’t have a legendary this time, but here’s an image of it below.


IMG_1079 (1)IMG_1081 (1)I actually won 11 wins on the heal spell challenge as well, which was an incredible challenge with amazing rewards like a free giant chest, the new heal spell, and 25,000 gold (I used the gold to upgrade my fire spirits to level 12, making me turn level 11 in the first place)! I sadly didn’t get to 12 wins (My phone shut off on the last battle, as I didn’t charge my phone after my back to back battles in the challenge), but that’s alright since I only played the challenge once, using my free entry, and not wasting 100 gems just to get more heal spells. I also got a legendary Princess, and more heals, so I think the chest was still amazing to get in IMG_1096the first place. There’s also a heal spell offer as of today, but I don’t know if I should use 200 gems on the 100 heal spells, since I’ve taken a long break from paying money in the game, and I don’t intend to for a LONG time. COMMENT DOWN BELOW IF I SHOULD BUY IT OR NOT, BUT DO SO QUICKLY; IT WILL ONLY LAST A LITTLE BIT LONGER! Here’s an image of that card pack as well. I also had some other cool chests and challenges that I’ve done, so I’ll put a few more images together in a slideshow format at the bottom of the post for a bit more information. I honestly think that’s enough for the update part, because I just spewed a good amount of information at you, my viewers, in a short amount of space, so let’s move on to the advice.

What should you do when you encounter a heal spell in a real battle, since more and more people will have them in hog mountain and above as time goes on. Well…

First, notice the elixir your opponent just spent. If they used an expensive push like Elite Barbarians, Hog Rider, and then a heal after a few seconds, (Yes, I’ve actually seen these plays made in the heal spell challenge, and in TV Royale) you could counter the push with minimal damage with:

  • Skeleton Amry
  • Minion Horde
  • Goblin Gang, and some other support (Ex: Electro Wizard, Wizard, Ice Wizard, Valkyrie, Bowler, etc.)
  • Fire Spirits (Alone if the levels match up with the E-Barb levels, making them easy to kill by any other troop, or with another support right away if the fire spirits are underleveled compared to the Hog Rider and Elite Barbarians.)

These are just a few suggested counters to many big heal pushes like the example. I personally use my Ice Wizard and Mega Minion together to stop Elite Barbarians or Hogs, with other troops such as my fire spirits or skeleton army (depending on the rotation), and I love to use Lighting against combos like the Hog E-Barb combination, Image result for heal spellsince it throws them off, and I can log, or fire spirit, them before they can start to heal. Like I said earlier, the heal spell is very new to the game, and just depending on your deck style, try to find a balance with counters and counter pushes relating to the heal spell (Also the Hog Rider and Elite Barbarians should have counters in your deck. Trust me, you’ll see those cards used a lot the higher you go in arenas, or in the lower arenas for that matter, and I mean these cards will be used A LOT; so be ready). That’s really it for the advice on today’s post. Just be ready for some crazy expensive combos, some goblin barrel and miner combos, and some other cheap combos with the amazing heal spell!


I’ve been checking this website called Stats Royale  lately, to see my chest cycles and all statistics about the current meta, cards to use, most popular decks for challenges, tournaments, and ladder matches, and their win ratios, etc. and this website is amazing! Not only is it supported by Supercell, as it was shown on News Royale, but I highly recommend using it to check out what’s happening on the inside of the game with every update! I also suggest using deckshop.pro for a rundown on your deck based on your arena; letting you know what it’s good against, what it is weak to, what it’s great, amazing, or good with, and what you should change. It actually rated my deck as really good overall, and It said that I had no card weaknesses, but that it didn’t have many synergies between my cards (It only has 1 synergy, which means it there only is 1 really good card combination in my deck).

That’s it for today’s long post about Clash Royale! I hope you enjoyed reading it as much as I did making it, since I’m so happy to start up the Clash Royale section of this blog again! As always, have a great day, and please re-blog, like, comment, etc. on this blog if you liked the post (everything helps keep this blog running, and staying relevant to what YOU guys want to see)!

[11] Legendary Arena: 4,196 Trophies

-Previous Post- (In the category)

Hello everyone, and welcome to NiceGamingAdvice! For all you old timers, and veterans to this blog, I welcome you back! And, for all you new people, here to check out my blog for the first time, It’s nice to meet you! Also, everyone who’s a US citizen here, or anyone watching the Big game, I hope you enjoy the Super Bowl!

This blog post will be about the deck I used in order to get to 4,196 trophies, how I use it, and some other exciting things that have happened to me while playing mobile games!

It’s been quite some time since I last talked about how I was doing in the game, since I’ve been mainly talking about new cards and strategies in the game. Well, first things first, I’ve done so much that I can’t describe it all in this mere post, so I’ve just decided to do a slideshow on some things that have happened to me recently on my Clash Royale account.

Disclaimer: I didn’t purchase all those gems and money offers from my own wallet, or from anyone else I know. But, I won some YouTuber, from another country (I believe Norway or Sweden)’s 10,000 gem tournament, and along with the prized chest (which I was unable to screenshot since my photo space was full) I was given a $50.00 I tunes card because of some giveaway he had going on his YouTube channel. I then used this to purchase the winter, jungle, and fortune pack offers, and this gave me all the gems I currently have. I also never spend my gems expect on certain card bundles, when the card comes out, or on some challenges, so I always have a ton of gems. This was one of the happiest moments in my Clash history, since I’ve never won so much money, or any money for that matter, for free.

Here are some of the screenshots I took on my recent Clash Activity. I will be posting more in a future post.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So, the deck that got me so far in Legendary Arena is this, and I’ll list the levels:

Average Elixir Cost: 3.6

  1. Lava Hound (level 2, 7 elixir)- The tank of the deck, used for soaking up damage, getting damage with the pups, drawing out arrows, zap, or poison, or even to distract the now overpowered executioner, this card can do some many things for what it’s worth!
  2. Lightning (level 5, 6 elixir)- Great for doing the finishing blow on a tower, but mostly for good tower damage, along with taking out troops such as the mega minion, musketeer, ice wizard, wizard, princess, and anything similar.
  3. Ice Wizard (level 2, 3 elixir)- Great of defense, not the best on offense. I use the ice wizard to slow down tanks, slowly kill off troops like the witch or mega minion, protect against the minion horde, skeleton army, goblins, etc. or even to soak up damage as a “mini tank” for a goblin barrel strike.
  4. The Log (level 2, 2 elixir)- Again, a great defensive card. It pushes back troops, can do the finishing blow to a rival troop, or can kill goblin barrels, spear goblins, skeleton armies, ice spirits, or fire spirits, completely!
  5. Fire Spirits (level 11, 2 elixir)- Insane power for what they’re worth, the fire spirits have some of the best splash damage in the game! They, like the log, can make the final blow on enemy troops or towers, can completely shut down low health units, even archers, severely damage troops like the witch, mega minion, or musketeer, and they can also take out minions and minion horde easily, or even barbarians (if a matching level) without taking tower damage.
  6. Mega Minion (level 8, 3 elixir)- Powerful hitter with low health, keep it protected behind the Lava Hound, or even an ice wizard, and it will reward you greatly. It can be used to shut down some of the highest hitpoint enemies, and if paired with the ice wizard, can shut down a giant or lava hound, with a powerful counter push ready.
  7. Goblin Barrel (level 5, 3 elixir)- Used to draw out zap, arrows, fireball, or anything the enemy can throw at it! The goblin barrel is a great distraction card, and can be vital in many situations while using my deck. I also do tricky goblin barrel placements to draw out a zap or log, and have the enemy miss, so that they have to fight harder to shut down the three goblins.
  8. Skeleton Army (level 4, 3 elixir)- Great against tank cards or squishy ground unit cards, it can be used for many reasons. The skeleton army is also a zap bait, log bait, arrow bait, etc. card that can be used to stop even the most powerful of pushes. Make sure to use this card after the goblin barrel is zapped or logged (and you already know that their defense against the skeleton army is gone) or vice versa.

It’s crazy that I’m so far in legendary arena with only a total of 864 WINS! This fact shows that my win-lose ratio is way better than most of the people I battle. As a side fact, most of the people I battle now are level 11s with much better leveled troops that I have, but I still win because of skill and determination.

I hope this little update on my first Clash Royale account helps you out on learning about a good deck to take you to Legendary Arena, since I’ve used this deck since the start of Frozen Peaks and it never disappoints! I also have a level 6 account in Royal Arena, arena 7, and I will talk about how a low level 6 got that far in the game already, with only 104 wins in my clan’s feeder clan: LDS1stDimension.

As always, I hope this information helped all of you, and I do hope you stick around to get more advice, fun gameplay, random posts, and more! Have a good day, and Clash On!

[10] The [New] Executioner: Good or Bad?

Image result for executioner in clash royale axe moving
The Clash Royale definition of “The Executioner”

-Previous Post- (In this category)

Pictures will be everywhere in this post, so don’t forget to comment, re-blog, and share this post if you like the look of it!

Hello everyone, I’m damondaboss, and welcome to NiceGamingAdvice. I’m sorry that it’s been an entire TWO WEEKS since I last posted, but don’t worry, this post will hopefully fill up the gap that was made with tons of content and advice! Today’s post will be on, as you probably guessed, Clash Royale. But to be more specific, it’s on the newest card added to the game, the Executioner! Now, let’s get right into the post/advice that I have prepared with days of using this new card, and seeing what it can do.

1. I never realized the potential of the Executioner card until I first used it. It was an entirely unfamiliar card to me, yet it was so similar to other cards I’ve used before (and I’ve used every card in the game, so I guess it can relate to a handful of them). It’s unique in it’s own way, and here’s what I first found out about the new Executioner card on my first time using it. It can stun (unlike a zap)/ distract enemies from targeting certain troops.executioner-graveyard-deck-2 It uses it’s axe as a boomerang (As shown on the side), which gives it a safe area around it, used to protect against swarm troops. It can also better protect “tanky” cards such as the Giant, Golem, or Lava Hound. If you want to learn more about how the card interacts with enemy units, check out Orange Juice Gaming’s Executioner Game play video on YouTube.

2. At first, I didn’t know if the card would be worth using or not until I kept encountering cheap, and low, hit-point (hp) units/troops such as the minion horde, spear goblins, and skeletons. The great thing about the Executioner is that It’s as expensive as a Bowler, and the difference is that it can target air and ground troops, while the bowler only hits troops on the ground. (Comparison Picture shown on the right). Two other great things about this new card are that:https://258clashroyale.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/Comparison-between-Bowler-and-Executioner-1.jpg

  • It can counter once annoying cards to deal with, such as the legendary graveyard and lava hound. As shown in the official Clash Royale’s YouTube short on The Executioner. Clash Royale YouTube Video.
  • It also has a fast return + throw speed of its axe, which keeps it from being attacked by swarm troops in the approximate 2 seconds that the axe is in the air.

3. Then I realized that the new executioner card was really just a better version of the Wizard, which I used to use in my lower arena decks to take care of “swarm units.” (Ex: Skeleton army, Minion horde, the upcoming Goblin Gang, etc.). First things first, It has more health than a Wizard, which is the same elixir cost, and it also has a bigger tile splash attack radius than one too. This alone shows that The Executioner is the best splash unit card, besides the cheap 2 elixir fire spirits, out there! Here’s another Comparison picture, now featuring the Wizard (Shown below). Also, here are some more things I realized that The Executioner was better at than the wizard:


  • The Executioner has a slight protective radius as the axe returns to it’s hand, which makes it hard to deal with. As shown in  Orange Juice Gaming’s YouTube video on how to use the Executioner.
  • Lastly, it has one of the greatest area damages, with character cards, in the game, making it a viable option to use in almost any deck. Picture of splash effect shown to the right).

4. So now I use the executioner card in my own lava hound deck that I created for challenges, tournaments, and occasionally competitive battles on the ladder (AKA trophy earning battles). It’s a great card against any level swarm cards, as it still damages them all, and always will kill skeletons. It can also be used to get easy 12 win challenges (max stage for challenges), since it is such an easy card to use. (Picture of a 12 win challenge shown below/ to the left).https://i.ytimg.com/vi/If9i8VmH_aE/maxresdefault.jpgFinally, it can hit multiple targets at a time, not excluding large ones that would normally “soak up” a Wizard or Bowler’s splash attack.  Nickatnyte’s YouTube Channel
demonstrates this as he uses the card against other players.

That’s it for today’s epic blog post! I hope you enjoyed it, and if you did, please spread the word about NiceGamingAdvice, which would help me make more content faster, and more efficiently. As always, have a nice day, and Clash On!

[9] The New Jungle Arena in Clash Royale! Also, introducing the Dart Goblin, Battering Ram, Executioner, and the Goblin Gang!

-Previous Post-

Welcome to NiceGamingAdvice, where you can find quality content about mobile games, and more specifically for today, Clash Royale. For those of you who are new, welcome, and for those of you who are NGA Veterans, thanks for all the support! Today’s post will be on a major update in Clash Royale, which was truly unexpected to all of its players.

The update was simply, a new arena, and four new cards. The new cards are as listed, three of them (the Goblin Gang, Dart Goblin, and The Executioner) are in the new arena, coming in the next upcoming weeks, and one of them is an addition to the Builder’s Workshop arena, the new Battering Ram card.

  1. Dart Goblin (released on the day of the jungle arena’s release) – Health of an archer, speed (and hit speed) of a lumberjack, and green like a goblin. Sounds weird? That’s because it is.
  2. Goblin Gang – 3 “stab” goblins, 3 spear goblins, and a whole lot of trouble. Enough said.
  3.  [The] Executioner – What can’t he hit? He’s a walking minion horde be-gone, and he also knows how to exterminate those pesky weak troops like goblins, skeletons, fire spirits, (borderline weak troop health: ice spirits and archers), and much more. They probably should’ve just called him “The Exterminator.”
  4. Battering Ram – Have you ever wondered what would happen if someone removed the spikes off the log, and then gave the wood to a pair of barbarians? The brutes would probably just charge a tower with the log. Wait, that’s actually what the Battering Ram does! Fast and dangerous at 2x speed (similar to a prince’s charge) the Battering Ram will prove to be versatile in many a battle. Like seriously, that’s actually a real thing. Like 100% legit. What in the world was Supercell thinking?

The arena itself also has many cool attributes. These too will be listed, and pictures for all the images will be provided down below.

The Jungle Arena

  • At double elixir time it has lighting flash, and rain fall down.
  • New animations bring the arena to life!

For more information on this new arena, and the new cards to be released, take a look at Supercell’s page on this update, which will be below the images.

[8] Clash Royale: The “Newest” Cards- Tornado, Elite Barbarians, and the Clone Spell. Also, finally there’s the Electro Wizard, coming in the near future.

-Previous Post-

Hello everyone, and welcome to NiceGamingAdvice! Today I will be briefly going over the newest cards to Clash Royale: the clone spell, elite barbarians, electro wizard, and tornado.

Below are images of the cards, and their statistics at level one (going with their card rarity), besides the electro wizard. Now, to some of the more prominent card uses!

Clone Spell: This card is amazing, and can be used for many reasons. One can clone skip with it, which is basically moving your troop, that isn’t cloned, away from something it could be distracted by, for example, a giant skeleton moving away from a protective cannon. The clone spell always moves the pre-cloned troop to the right, which is good to know for “clone skipping.” This card is also great with the use of lava hounds (for the pups), giant skeletons (for the highly powerful bomb), witches (for the spawned skeletons), and for balloons (again for the bomb, but also the huge tower damage). These are some of the very common uses of the clone spell in this very meta. Btw, if you don’t know what the term “meta” is, check out what it means, and learn more about these cards, at YouTube on Channels such as Orange Juice Gaming, or Nickatnyte (both of their channels will be in the bottom of the post).

Elite Barbarians: This cards are pretty straightforward, they’re like upgraded barbarians. Now, again thanks to the new update coming, they will truly be elite, as they can take down tanks, run to that tower faster with more damage per second (dps), and be a total pain to archer decks, as they will now kill archers in a single hit! Get ready to see these cards used more often, and try to find counters for them, such as air troops, that can stop their charge towards your towers!

Tornado Spell: This card has been looked at as kind of a joke, a card to use only to draw out your king tower, for some time. But thanks to the new “buff” or upgrade to it, in the close update, this card will be great for the purposes it was made for. It will be a good troop gatherer, by dragging all the enemy troops into on space (where you can zap, fireball, lightning, or use about any spell you can think of). It will also be a good troop staller, for those epic last minute wins. Lastly, this card will be used to bring troops together for splash units especially, where the enemy troops can easily be defeated (as the wizard and bomber, both splash unit cards, are being buffed in the nearest update).

Electro Wizard: This card isn’t actually out yet, but based off the information about it, I can give you a pretty good idea on how to use it. This card is great for “zapping” minions, skeletons, goblins, and many other cheap troops, especially with the damage dealt with its spawn. Coupled with the zap spell, this card could easily take out minions, and minion hordes, similarly to the ice wizard’s last hit on the already damaged troops (from the zap). The electro wizard has many possibilities! Who knows? This card might be a great replacement for fireball, arrows, or even the ice wizard!

I know today’s post was mainly advice, and besides that, a little short, but don’t worry! Making the post shorter has given me more time to make more posts in a smaller amount of time, so get ready for at least one more post before winter break!

[7] Clash Royale: Overview of the King’s Cup

-Previous Post-

Welcome to NiceGamingAdvice! I’m damondaboss, and YOU are what keeps this blog running! I’m glad you came by today, old or new, it doesn’t matter, just remember to check out my other posts before you go!

Today’s post is about the King’s Cup Event that recently passed in Clash Royale, even the Double Elixir Challenge passed, so I’m a little behind on talking about it! But, here goes nothing, because I’m going to briefly explain what the decks in the challenge were, and how to use them. I also want you to know that these strategies may come in handy later, as an event that’s similar to this might come around.

Pictures of the event, and some of my battle successes. By the way, I didn’t take a picture of it, but I was able to pull off 10 wins in the challenge on my last try before it ended.


In the King’s Cup, there was a good variety of decks the player was given, but I only took photos of the ones I could (which are most, or all, of them anyway). This post will simply be me telling how to best use each of the decks, the four, that I took photos of.

Personally, I really enjoyed having fresh decks every round, and I think the King’s Cup was a great way for Clash Royale players to branch out from their comfort zones and use cards they wouldn’t normally use.

The decks are…

  • Dark Lightning – The best way, I found, to use this deck was to swarm the enemy with cheap troops, and then placing the lumberjack and dark prince in front of these troops to act as tanks to the powerful, but weak, troops behind them.
  • The Frozen Hog – The entire purpose of the deck was to slow down the enemy so that the hog rider could get some hits off the tower, the poison and ice wizard were great used with the hog rider, and the ice spell was the best card to use against the tower (and troops on top, or near, it) in order for the hog rider to get serious damage on the crown or King’s towers.
  • The Raging Balloon (Favorite by far!) – This deck is simple, distract the enemy with the witch and Valkyrie, and use the archers, ice spirit, and rage spell with the balloon, which can easily take a tower in 10 seconds. The balloon while raged, was practically unstoppable when it reached the tower.
  • X-Bowler – The trick to this deck is to put the X-Bow behind the big and tanky bowler, and to support the bow from behind with the princess to deal with aerial attacks.


And that’s really it for this blog post, tell me how you felt about it either from comments, twitter, Instagram, Facebook, or email. As always, have a good day and, Clash On!
