Today (April 16, 2016), Clash Royale had its first ever physical tournament set in Helsinki, Finland. Out of the 200 participants one player, named Jason, came out victorious. And the really cool thing is, he dominated the tournament with this one deck.
Jason’s Clash Royale’s deck that utilizes the Giant, which in my opinion, is a highly underrated card. The Clash Royale Giant went through so much recent buffs, but people are still going with other tanky options such as Clash Royale Golem and Pekka. But what makes the Clash Royale Giant so special is his Elixir cost, he costs 3 less Elixir than the Clash Royale Golem, which allows you to form stronger combinations.
For example, in this Clash Royale deck, Jason utilizes the Giant with Clash Royale Hog Rider. The concept is to use the Clash Royale Giant as a shield while the Clash Royale Hog Rider can freely target the Clash Royale Arena Tower. Not only that, he uses both the Clash Royale Barbarians and Minion Horde, which you guys know to be an extremely potent defensive and offensive combo.
Both the Clash Royale Giant and Hog Rider are weak to the Inferno Tower, so you can surround these hordes of troops, your Clash Royale Barbarians, Minions, Archers, and Spear Goblins in front of your Giant or Hog Rider to quickly counter the Clash Royale Inferno Tower. And then he also utilizes one of the deadliest cards in the game, the Clash Royale Elixir Collector. And this is what makes this deck so deadly is that once you’ve generated enough Elixir and its double Elixir time, it becomes so easy to overwhelm your opponent with a huge rush with the Clash Royale Giant and Hog Rider combined with a swarm of troops

How to use this Clash Royale deck
I’ve also tweaked this Clash Royale deck a little, and I believe that these changes makes the deck even better. For example, this Clash Royale deck struggles a lot against players who use multiple buildings, especially with the Inferno Tower or Clash Royale hut spammers. So what I did was replace the Clash Royale Spear Goblins and Arrows for Fireball and Zap Spell.
I believe this Clash Royale deck is better because now you have a strong area damaging card like the Clash Royale Fireball to destroy those buildings to allow your Hog Rider and Giant to travel directly to your opponent’s tower. Not only that, the Clash Royale Zap Spell also makes for an excellent combo with the Hog Rider and Giant, allowing you to not only kill or weaken hordes, but also stun your opponent’s tower to allow your Clash Royale Hog Rider or Giant to get an extra shot on the tower.
