Strongest Decks for the Legendary Challenge

challenge decks

Hey Guys!

What’s up, it’s Unstoppable, and I’m finally back after a long break from the competitive scene after I went to CCGS.

Recently I’ve been back on the grind doing GCs and getting a ton of 12 wins

Because of all the success I’ve been having (farmed around 1.5 million gold already and have an almost maxed account), I wanted to share my tips with you guys on which decks to use, and how to use them.

Grand Challenges/Classic Challenges are the absolute best way to spend your gems, as you get 22K gold/1200 Cards per 12 wins. That’s absolutely insane value, and I highly recommend it.

Top Challenge Decks That Work In The Current Meta

Golem RG

Clash Royale GolemClash Royale Royal GhostClash Royale GuardsClash Royale Mega Minion
Clash Royale PoisonClash Royale Cannon CartClash Royale Electro WizardClash Royale The Log

Golem is one of the strongest archetypes in the game, if you know how to play it.

Due to it’s massive HP, you can support it with weaker troops (like mega minion) that deal high DPS while it beats down your opponent’s tower.

The tip for this Golem deck is to play slow at the beginning.

Unlike other players, I do like to play Golem sometimes in single elixer only in specific situations.

You only want to play Golem when you have a significant elixer advantage or when you know you will not get punished.

You can use a Golem on defense to tank your opponents supporting units while you defend against their tank. You can then counter push with that Golem and your defensive units.

Goblin Hut is really great for baiting out Poison so you can stack units like Night Witch and Mega Minion behind your Golem.

Balloon Hunter

Clash Royale Mega KnightClash Royale BalloonClash Royale HunterClash Royale Ice Golem
Clash Royale ZapClash Royale MinerClash Royale Ice SpiritClash Royale Mega Minion

Next, we have this Balloon/Hunter deck. I really love this deck.

I have got many 12 wins in GCs with this deck, before Royal Ghost was introduced.

This deck does not as well now because of Goblin Hut. It is very hard to get through the Goblin Hut

A good starting move is to cycle Ice Spirit at the beginning.

The Mega Knight is extremely good on defense and can translate very easily into a counterpush.

Golem decks actually counter this deck because it is really tough to stop Golem and supporting units even though you have Mega Knight and Hunter, it is not enough to stop a Golem.

When you have a lot of counterpushing units, use Ice Golem in front and support with a Balloon. It is very tough to stop this combination.

Hog Exenado

Clash Royale Hog RiderClash Royale ExecutionerClash Royale TornadoClash Royale fireball

Clash Royale GuardsClash Royale KnightClash Royale Ice SpiritClash Royale The Log

Next deck is an old Hog/Executioner deck but with Guards substituted for Goblins.

This deck is really strong in the current meta mainly because of Royal Ghost. Knight and Guards are excellent counters to Royal Ghost.

You have Tornado and Guards which are invaluable against bridge spam.

This deck also counters Golem really well due to the insane Exenado combination.

It furthermore destroys Three Musketeers as you have Tornado+Fireball for three muskies and Pump, as well as Guards for Battle Ram, and Ice Spirit/nado Executioner for Minion Horde.

You even have Log for Goblin Gang. But this deck is vulnerable to Tornado, so if they have Tornado it will be tough to break through.

You can start off with a Knight or split Guards in the back depending on what is in your starting hand.

Do not be afraid to Fireball an Elixir Pump.

Executioner with Tornado is a really good defensive strategy to use against Beatdown.

If your opponent plays a tank in the back you can punish with Hog in the opposite lane to force them to draw elixer to defend it.

Graveyard Cycle

Clash Royale GraveyardClash Royale Ice GolemClash Royale KnightClash Royale Archers
Clash Royale Inferno TowerClash Royale PoisonClash Royale The LogClash Royale Ice Spirit

This deck is Trainer Luis’s deck.

It is a double tank Graveyard deck, but with Inferno as the main defense. This deck is vulnerable to 3 Musketeers but it works really well against Golem, Hog, and many other deck archetypes.

If your opponent places an Elixir Pump you can punish him with Knight/Ice Golem and Graveyard push.

The optimal way of playing this deck is using Archers in good placements to defend an opponent push, then counterpushing with Graveyard.

It is deadly as they have to answer both the supporting units as well as Graveyard.

If your opponent places Golem in the back you can punish them by pushing on the other lane.

You always want to split Archers in the beginning or cycle Ice Spirit so you can push on any lane depending on your opponent’s push.

Giant Royal Ghost

Clash Royale GiantClash Royale PrinceClash Royale Royal GhostClash Royale Electro Wizard
Clash Royale Mega MinionClash Royale Ice SpiritClash Royale PoisonClash Royale Zap

The next deck is a Giant/Royal Ghost deck. This deck is really good because you can use Giant more easily on defense as opposed to Golem decks.

It is great for soaking up damage (for instance from your opponent’s Musketeer or Bats, then translating into a counterpush.

The Prince and Royal Ghost behind Giant is a good combination on offence due to their high DPS or splash.

You can also use Prince and Royal Ghost to defend than counter push with Giant in front.

You have E-Wiz to defend against units like Inferno Dragon, Bats, and the ever popular Skelly Barrel now. And Zap to use on offence against Inferno Dragon or Inferno Tower.

Starting moves are cycling Ice Spirit, using a Giant and pushing same lane as whatever your opponent drops, Ewiz/Mega Minion in back.

I dont recommend rushing with a Prince on offense, it is too aggresive.

Royal Ghost Bridge Spam

Clash Royale Royal GhostClash Royale Battle RamClash Royale Night WitchClash Royale Ice Golem
Clash Royale BanditClash Royale PoisonClash Royale ZapClash Royale Inferno Dragon

This deck is so overpowered right now. The key to this deck is to spam your units at the bridge so your opponent will not be able to counter this.

But do not spam mindlessly, you typically want to play slightly conservatively, then go almost all in when they invest elixer in the other lane.

For instance, if they use a Golem in back or elxier Pump, immediately Battle Ram + Night Witch the other lane. Or use a Ghost.

Night Witch paired with Battle Ram and Ice Golem in front to tank is a really good combination on offence.

Then they will be forced to spend a ton of elixer in defending, whereas you can simply use a Inferno Dragon to defend their Golem easily for a positive elixer trade.

Then you can use the Inferno Dragon for another counterpush as it is still alive.

Ghost is really good at countering Three Musketeers as well.

I’d really appreciate subscribing/sharing the videos, as I will be producing videos approximately once a week, each time with a new deck I’ve been having success with in GC’s or general tips on how you can become a better player.

I frequently post the best decks updated in the meta on my Twitter account, so if you want to stay up to date with the frequent meta shifts, please follow. I post 12 win decks almost daily.

I also have Instagram in which I share cool photos, for instance one of my posts I took some pictures with players like Surgical Goblin, Tin2, and other pros from CCGS. Check it out.

Furthermore, I’d like to give a huge shoutout to Team Clovers for sponsoring me. If any of you are looking to tryout for our pro team (which offers contracts, monthly salaries, and max accounts), please follow them on Twitter and join their Discord.

Lastly, big shoutout to Will for helping me get where I am now. Without the support of all of you guys I would not be here right now 🙂
