Unstoppable P.E.K.K.A. Beatdown Deck for Arena 4+


Hey, it’s AxureFangz back at it for you guys, with another deck!

This deck is basically a P.E.K.K.A for our lower arena players. I had used this deck from arena 4/5 to arena 6! It’s pretty fun to play with, as I also use it in tournaments sometimes!

It does counter some of the meta decks, but in lower arenas, they aren’t common. Also, there are no Elite Barbarians! Just make sure you know how to manage your elixir!

Clash Royale ValkyrieClash Royale Fire SpiritsClash Royale Inferno TowerClash Royale Arrows

The Cards and their Roles:

PEKKAP.E.K.K.A.-Your main win condition! This voltaic beast chops up thing like no other chef! Support it with your troops and wreck havoc! The P.E.K.K.A. is highly durable for both offense and defense. Just manage your elixir and you’ll have no problem using this robot!

Ever since the P.E.K.K.A. received a buff for its deployment time (3s to 1s), it can easily wipe out single troops. Do keep in mind that the P.E.K.K.A. can easily be distracted because of its speed and its DPS, so use her wisely!

If needed, use it against a Giant, Giant Skeleton and also a P.E.K.K.A. Counterpush afterwards.


WitchWitch- Your support and splash card. She can summon up to 6 Skeletons at max, which (Witch!Get it?) provides some distractions for your P.E.K.K.A., especially for your opponents Inferno Tower.

She can mow down a ton of swarm troops, like Skeleton Army, Minion Horde, Barbarians (All at a distance), and distract heavy troops, like Prince, Mini P.E.K.K.A., P.E.K.K.A., Giant Skeleton etc.

Put this card behind your P.E.K.K.A. and have a nearly unstoppable push!

Can be replaced with Wizard, but a Wizard doesn’t spawn any Gandalf, right?(Hope that makes sense..)

MuskMusketeer- Another support card! Her amazing damage and range can take out many things at a great distance, like Mini P.E.K.K.A., Barbarians, Balloon, Valkyrie and other glass cannons.

She can snipe off Inferno Tower which can be misplaced, which (Witch!) is very important.

Put her behind your P.E.K.K.A. and Witch, to make an unstoppable push!

Can be replaced with Wizard, but it is 5 elixir, making the deck more expensive.

ValkValkyrie- Your second splash and tank card. She has a great amount of hitpoints and has her AoE, which helps mow down many ground troops.

Put this in front of your P.E.K.K.A. so she can clear the way towards you enemy’s tower!

Can help take out glass cannons behind a tank, like a Giant and Musketeer. The Valkyrie can take out the Musketeer, then turn towards the Giant. Do support here with some troops for both offense and defense, as Minions and Minion Horde can destroy her!

Can be replaced with Knight, but the Knight doesn’t have any AoE. Maybe if he tried to swing his sword left and right instead?

FireSpiritsFire Spirits- These cute fire balls are deadly! For only two elixir, they can make quick work of Barbarians, Guards, Minion Horde, and Skeleton Army. When over leveled, they can reach the tower, and able to do more damage than a Fireball! Surprising, eh?

If you were able to get your super deathball push down, put these cuties behind your troops, so it can prevent a potential Minion Horde or Skeleton Army.

You must get to Arena 5 if you can to get these, or you can replace it with Skeletons

BarrelGoblin Barrel- Yup, you wouldn’t find this in a P.E.K.K.A. deck, right? This is your second win condition. Use this with your push to completely screw your opponent. It is obvious to not use this on defense, but sometimes, you may need to!

Since they cannot be zappable, they can put more tension on your opponent.(Back then, they could be killed by a zap equal to the Goblins’ level.) It must take a over leveled zap in order to kill them.

If you apparently have a Miner, then use it instead!

InfernoInferno Tower– Your main tank defense! Overtime, it can increase his damage to destroy tanks, like a P.E.K.K.A., Giant, Hog Rider etc.

Its placement does matter, as it will decide whether it will lure the tank or not.

This card plus the Valkyrie can provide an solid defense.

Can be replaced with the other buildings, but it isn’t recommended. But if need to, use cannon or tesla.

ArrowsArrows-I believe I don’t need to explain right? Just use it on Minion Horde, Skeleton Army or Goblin Barrel.

Can be replaced with Zap, but it is best if it can one shot Goblins and Minion Horde.

By this time in these arenas, try to get epics to level 2, rares to level 4 or 5, and commons to level 7 or 8. If you got a legendary, keep it level 1.

General Gameplan

Early in the Game:

Basically you need to keep defending! Just use your elixir right, and you will win. At the back, you can:

  • Deploy Musketeer
  • Deploy Witch
  • Or can go naked Goblin Barrel and/or Fire Spirits.

You should never go P.E.K.K.A. at the back unless you now your opponent drained their elixir or it is 2x elixir. If they place Hog Rider, use Inferno Tower to defend.

If he goes Giant at the back, place you P.E.K.K.A. at the back! You will be surprised when you see the robot shredding the Giant!

Do support your P.E.K.K.A. as you will have a deadly counterpush.

If the Giant has a Musketeer or Witch behind it, use your Valkyrie. If he has Minion Horde, use Arrows. If he has Goblin Barrel, use Arrows, Fire Spirits or Valkyrie.

Early in the Game

In the early stages of Clash Royale, the key to success lies in solid defense and efficient elixir management. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you navigate the initial phase of the game:

Defensive Strategy

  1. Deploy Musketeer: Placing a Musketeer at the back of your arena is a smart move. The Musketeer’s long-range attack allows her to support your defense while conserving elixir for subsequent plays.
  2. Deploy Witch: Similarly, deploying a Witch at the back is effective. The Witch’s ability to summon skeletons provides a steady stream of defensive units that can help counter various threats.
  3. Naked Goblin Barrel and/or Fire Spirits: If you’re feeling aggressive or want to bait out your opponent’s spells, you can throw a naked Goblin Barrel directly at the enemy tower. Fire Spirits can also be used to pressure the opponent or eliminate swarms efficiently.

Key Defensive Tips

  • Avoid P.E.K.K.A. Early: It’s generally unwise to deploy a P.E.K.K.A. at the back early in the game unless you’re sure your opponent has depleted their elixir or it’s Double Elixir time. The P.E.K.K.A. is a heavy investment and can leave you vulnerable to fast attacks.
  • Defending Against Hog Rider: When your opponent plays a Hog Rider, counter it with an Inferno Tower. The Inferno Tower’s high damage output will quickly melt through the Hog Rider, preventing significant damage to your tower.

Countering Opponent’s Giant

  • P.E.K.K.A. vs. Giant: If your opponent deploys a Giant at the back, it’s the perfect opportunity to play your P.E.K.K.A. at the back as well. The P.E.K.K.A.’s high damage per second (DPS) will shred through the Giant, especially if supported by your other defensive units.

By following these strategies, you’ll be able to maintain a strong defense while managing your elixir efficiently. The early game in Clash Royale is all about setting up a solid foundation for your mid and late game plays. Keep defending smartly, use your elixir wisely, and you’ll be on your way to victory.


By now you should know your opponents deck very well (best if you know his cycle). You should be able to predict his cards, too!

For example, if he/she places a Musketeer at the back, then probably he/she will place a tank or high health unit in front. So, you would have Inferno Tower, Valkyrie and Arrows ready.

Your pushes should start building up now, but be careful with a P.E.K.K.A., because it drain 7 elixir.

You can do

  • Valkyrie+Goblin Barrel
  • Witch+Goblin Barrel
  • Fire Spirits+Goblin Barrel
  • Valkyrie+Fire Spirits+Goblin Barrel.

By the mid-game phase in Clash Royale, you should have a solid understanding of your opponent’s deck and their card rotation. This insight is crucial for making strategic decisions and predicting your opponent’s moves. Here’s a guide to help you navigate this critical stage of the match:

Anticipating Your Opponent’s Moves

Knowing your opponent’s deck and cycle can give you a significant advantage. For example, if your opponent places a Musketeer at the back, it often signals that they are preparing to support it with a tank or high-health unit in front. In such scenarios, be prepared with the appropriate counter-cards:

  • Inferno Tower: Effective against high-health units and tanks.
  • Valkyrie: Great for dealing with swarms and support troops.
  • Arrows: Useful for clearing out low-health troops that may accompany the tank.

By predicting your opponent’s strategy, you can allocate your elixir efficiently and mount a strong defense while preparing for your own offensive push.

Building Up Your Push

Mid-game is the time to start building up your pushes, but it’s essential to manage your elixir carefully, especially when deploying high-cost units like the P.E.K.K.A., which costs 7 elixir. Overcommitting can leave you vulnerable to counterattacks.

Here are some effective mid-game push combinations:

  • Valkyrie + Goblin Barrel: The Valkyrie can tank and clear out swarm units, allowing the Goblin Barrel to deal significant tower damage.
  • Witch + Goblin Barrel: The Witch provides support with her spawning skeletons and splash damage, making it difficult for your opponent to handle both threats simultaneously.
  • Fire Spirits + Goblin Barrel: The Fire Spirits can deal area damage, clearing out small troops and enabling the Goblin Barrel to focus on the tower.
  • Valkyrie + Fire Spirits + Goblin Barrel: This combination offers a robust offensive push, with the Valkyrie tanking, the Fire Spirits providing splash damage, and the Goblin Barrel targeting the tower directly.

Tips for Success

  1. Elixir Management: Always be mindful of your elixir count. Avoid overcommitting to a single push unless you are confident it will yield substantial damage or a tower.
  2. Counterplay: Be ready to counter your opponent’s responses. If they have a strong counter to your Goblin Barrel, like the Log or Arrows, bait these spells with other low-cost units first.
  3. Adaptability: Adapt your strategy based on your opponent’s responses. If they are consistently countering your pushes, try switching up your combinations to catch them off guard.
  4. Defensive Readiness: Keep a few elixir in reserve to defend against potential counterattacks. A well-timed defense can turn into a strong counter-push.

By understanding your opponent’s deck, predicting their moves, and building up strategic pushes, you can gain a significant advantage in the mid-game phase of Clash Royale. Use these tips to outmaneuver your opponent and set yourself up for a successful endgame.

End of Match/Overtime:

If you have already taken a tower, +30 trophies for you! If you end up in Overtime, it is time to UNLEASH THE BEAST.

You should either start placing your P.E.K.K.A. at the front of you King Tower at full elixir, or at a counterpush. Then Support it with a Valkyrie, then Witch, then Fire Spirits. Hover Arrows if A Minion Horde is deployed. Then, use the Goblin Barrel. So, If your decides to waste his elixir on your P.E.K.K.A., then the Goblin Barrel will do the work. If he decides to counter the Goblin Barrel, well too little too late because the P.E.K.K.A. would be shredding the tower.

If you can’t get you P.E.K.K.A. and/or Goblin Barrel to the tower, just tie up with him, don’t give up like everyone else.

Unleashing the P.E.K.K.A.

As Overtime starts, having a clear plan can be the difference between victory and a draw. Here’s a battle-tested strategy to help you dominate the extra time:

  1. Deploy P.E.K.K.A. at Full Elixir: Start by placing your P.E.K.K.A. at the front of your King Tower. This gives you ample time to build up a strong push as it marches towards the enemy’s side.
  2. Support with Valkyrie, Witch, and Fire Spirits: Once your P.E.K.K.A. is on its way, immediately back it up with a Valkyrie. The Valkyrie acts as a durable frontliner that can handle swarms and smaller troops. Following the Valkyrie, deploy a Witch. Her skeletons and ranged attacks provide excellent support and distraction. Lastly, add Fire Spirits for their explosive splash damage, perfect for clearing out enemy hordes and softening up defenses.
  3. Hover Arrows for Minion Horde: Keep your Arrows ready in case your opponent deploys a Minion Horde to counter your push. A well-timed Arrows spell can clear the Minion Horde, ensuring your P.E.K.K.A. and support troops remain unscathed.
  4. Use the Goblin Barrel: As your P.E.K.K.A. and support troops approach the enemy tower, deploy your Goblin Barrel. This dual-pronged attack forces your opponent to make a tough decision. If they focus on stopping the P.E.K.K.A., the Goblin Barrel will deal significant damage to their tower. If they counter the Goblin Barrel, your P.E.K.K.A. will likely be free to wreak havoc.

Adapting to the Situation

If your P.E.K.K.A. and Goblin Barrel combo doesn’t break through, don’t despair. The key is to stay persistent and adapt to the unfolding situation:

  • Maintain Pressure: Continue applying pressure with smaller, frequent attacks. Use your remaining cards to keep the opponent on their toes, forcing them to continually spend their elixir.
  • Defensive Solidarity: Sometimes, it’s better to settle for a draw than risk a loss by overcommitting. Ensure your defenses are solid, and only push when you see a clear opportunity.
  • Psychological Warfare: Outlast your opponent mentally. If you can tie them up and keep them from making significant progress, they’ll likely get frustrated and make mistakes.

Match Ups:

HogHog Rider-Simple. Use your Inferno Tower! Keep Arrow and Valkyrie ready for support troops


GiantGiant- You got Inferno Tower for Giant, Valkyrie for Support, and Arrow for any swarm units like Minion Horde.


LavaLavahound- A rare match up. Use Inferno Tower and Musketeer for the Lavahound. If there is any soft swarm units, use Arrows.


PrincePrince- Fire Spirits to stop the Prince’s charge, and Musketeer. Or you can use the Witch. Have Arrows for Minion Horde.


Hog Rider

Strategy: The Hog Rider is a fast, single-target troop that aims directly for your towers. To counter it effectively:

  • Inferno Tower: This defensive building is your primary tool. Its ramping damage will make quick work of the Hog Rider.
  • Support Troops: Keep your Arrows and Valkyrie ready. The Arrows can eliminate weaker support units like Goblins or Skeletons, while the Valkyrie can handle troops like the Musketeer or Wizard that might follow the Hog Rider.


Strategy: The Giant is a high-health tank that targets buildings. Countering the Giant requires a mix of defenses to handle both the tank and its supporting units:

  • Inferno Tower: Place the Inferno Tower to melt through the Giant’s large health pool.
  • Valkyrie: Deploy the Valkyrie to deal with ground support troops like the Witch or Musketeer.
  • Arrows: Use Arrows to clear out swarm units like Minion Horde or Skeleton Army that often accompany the Giant.

Lava Hound

Strategy: The Lava Hound is a slow-moving air tank that splits into Lava Pups upon death. Though rare, it demands specific counters:

  • Inferno Tower and Musketeer: Use the Inferno Tower to target the Lava Hound while your Musketeer provides consistent anti-air damage.
  • Arrows: Save your Arrows for soft swarm units such as Minions or Bats that often accompany the Lava Hound.


Strategy: The Prince is known for his devastating charge attack, which deals double damage if he reaches his target. Stopping him requires timing and strategic deployment:

  • Fire Spirits: Deploy Fire Spirits to disrupt the Prince’s charge. Their explosive damage can significantly weaken or even eliminate him.
  • Musketeer or Witch: Follow up with a Musketeer for sustained damage or a Witch to both damage and spawn Skeletons for distraction.
  • Arrows: Use Arrows against supporting Minion Horde to prevent them from overwhelming your defenses.

Final Tips

  • Prediction and Placement: Anticipate where your opponent will place their troops and counter accordingly. Correct placement of defensive buildings and troops can make a significant difference.
  • Elixir Management: Always be mindful of your elixir count. Efficient use of elixir ensures you have the necessary resources to counter each threat.
  • Adaptability: Be ready to adapt your strategy based on the specific variations of your opponent’s deck. Flexibility is key to outmaneuvering your opponent.
