The Hog Trifecta Deck!

(No Legendaries)- Used by Top Players

This is a common strategy is used by many of the top players out there. This will be based on another Ash video and has been very successful for him and a lot of those top players out there.

This battle strategy will ensure you reaching Arena 9 without too many problems.

Battle Deck:

Skeletons + Hog Rider + Valkyrie+ Mini Pekka + Musketeer + Zap Spell + Poison Spell + Elixir Collector

Starting Strategy:

This strategy can be seen as a counter push strategy which means the cards can be used in defense and then followed up in offense. To start off, it would be wise to place the the elixir collector in the middle as seen in the video given below. You may then start plotting your counter push after your opponent has made his move accordingly.

Use and role of each card:


General Information:

The are a common card with very low hit points and come at just an elixir cost of 1. They are generally used in defense.


The skeletons are a card that come to your your aid when you have defensive problems. They are useful against cards like the prince, hog rider, giant etc. They also come at a very low elixir cost.


The skeletons are very low in hit points and can be take out in a flash.

How to use it in the Strategy:

The skeletons in this deck are there to help you with your defense. Use them every time you see a major threat against your tower.

By this I am referring to those big elixir consuming troops like the prince, giant skeleton, musketeer etc. Anything that is a ground troop of course. Be sure to use the skeletons within your area so your tower can deal damage to the opposition while the skeleton is as well.

2.Hog Rider:

General Information:

The hog rider is a rare card that comes at an elixir cost of 4. The hog rider is uick and looks to cause some serious damage to those opposing towers.


The hog rider’s quickness is it’s greatest asset! It can turn the match quickly to yur favor and comes at a reasonable cost of just 4.


The hog rider can easily be distracted by cards like the tombstone, inferno tower and even the cannon.

How to use it in the Strategy:

The deals in quick damage. Make sure you place him right up in the front. You can use cards like the zap spell if you see a defensive threat against rider, You may also use the poison spell to supplement the rider and cause extra damage.

General Information:

The valkyrie is a rare card that comes at an elixir cost of 4.

Strengths: The valkyrie can effectively take out troops with low hit points like the skeleton army, goblins etc. A full swing of her blade would mean that she can deal in considerable area damage.

Weaknesses: She cannot defend herself against flying troops.

How to use it in the Strategy:

The Valkyrie is one of those troops that that is very important because she is a very good counter card to use against most of the cards and also because there are very few counter cards that can be used against her. Use her in this deck for defensive purpose more often that not! you. The witch is extremely vulnerable against a Valkyrie. As is the skeleton army and musketeer to name a few.

4.Mini Pekka:

General Information:

The mini pekka is a hard hitting troop that comes at an elixir cost of 4.


The mini pekka deals in high damage against any troop. Get him to your opponent’s tower and the game is virtually won.


The mini pekka can be easily eliminated by troops like the skeleton army, goblins etc. It does not do well against a group but thrives one on one,

How to use it in the Strategy:

It is a fact that the mini pekka is vulnerable against flying unit sand others units that attacks in groups like the skeleton army and the barbarians. However, you may it in this deck as it will ensure that every weakness of the pekka is negated and in this case, you can use the zap card to negate the mini pekka’s weakness against the skeleton army. You may also use the poison spell or which ever you think is necessary.


General Information: The musketeer is a rare card that comes at an elixir cost of 4.

Strengths: The musketeer can deal in damage from a distance. What’s more is that every hit from the musketeer deals in good damage.

Weakness: The musketeer does not fare very well against an army like the skeleton army or the minion horde. It is also quite vulnerable when a troops like the valkyrie and the mini pekka and in combat with it,

How to use it in the Strategy:  

The role of the musketeer comes in its ability to cause huge damage to your opponent’s tower. However, since the musketeer comes with a weakness of getting taken out too quickly due to it’s low hit points. It is for this reason that the musketeer fits perfectly within this deck. You may send the musketeer behind the rider and cause damage together.

6. Zap spell:
General Information: The zap spell is a common card that comes at an elixir cost of 2.

Strengths: The zap spell can be used on troops like the skeleton army, goblins, minion horde etc.

Weakness: It deals in low damage and is only effective in defense.

How to use it in the Strategy:

The Zap finds its place in this deck purely for a defensive purpose. When your tower is under attack by potentially dangerous troops take them out by using the zap, The Zap will stall them for a second and cause some damage as well leaving the tower the chance the take the troops out.

The Zap is extremely effective against the skeleton army, the minions and the minion horde, so keep him safe so that your opponent exhausts his elixer while not anticipating the zap.

Poison Spell:

General Information:

The poison spell is an epic card that comes an elixir cost of 4.


The poison spell deals in are damage and can cause damage to anything in its wide range.

It can cause sufficient and long lasting damage to the towers, troops and buildings in its range.

8.The Elixir Collector:

General Information: The elixir collector is a rare card that comes at an elixir cost of just 6.

Strengths: It can serve as a distraction as well. The collector will help you gain an elixir advantage.

Weakness: It comes at a high cost and its life can be reduced through cards like the fireball, miner etc..

How to use it in the Strategy:

You can use the elixer collector for this purpose and get the added advantage in the middle of the battle. The collector is a great tool to create some pressure on your opponent and can also be used as a distraction for defensive purposes.

Battle Strategy:

Offensive: Hog Rider + Poison Spell

The Hog rider and the poison spell are a great combination as the poison spell will eliminate threats like the minion horde and the skeletons and will let the hog rider deal in damage. The poison spell will also hand out its own share of damage.

Defensive: Elixir Collector, Poison Spell and Zap

The defensive strategies in this deck comprises of several options which can be used in various situations. As it covers most of the defensive voes for any player, this strategy can be seen as a strong and a viable one! The following is the role of each of these cards:

Elixir Collector( used as a distraction) –- Giant, hog rider, Prince etc.

Poison Spell and Zap–- All flying units and small units like the skeletons, goblins.

The Zap-- Skeleton army and other ground units.

The musketeer can also be used as a defensive option when needed the most as you will see in the video.

1.Send out the musketeer from the back of the hog rider if you see an opening to cause some damage.
2.Attack one lane while carefully defending the other.
3.As it is a combination strategy remember to use each card to supplement the other.
3.Use your final sixty seconds wisely, don’t let your opponent rush you.
4.Watching videos and understanding the role and the weaknesses of every card in your deck will greatly help you.
