Cheap Defensive Combos = ZERO Damage Done!

Hey guys, in this guide I want to show you some great defensive combos which require tiny Elixir to deal with certain troops and get zero damage done on your Tower.

The gifs below were taken from Mighty’s video. You should take a look at his video at the bottom to see more details!

cheap defensive combos

A few things to note

  • In these situations, the Arena Tower is helping take out the enemy troops.
  • The incoming troop is a lone, or not supported by any troop.
  • Everything is at Tournament standard.
  • These matchups were taken after the balance change in June.


Ice Spirit + Goblins combo can completely shut down the Giant. Positive Elixir trade!

Skeleton Army

Ice Spirit completely shuts down Skeleton Army. 1 Elixir for 3 Elixir.

With only 2 Elixir, Ice Golem can easily shut down Valkyrie when played correctly.

Minion Horde

Not many players knew this but you can shut down Minion Horde by using Spear Goblins.

Baby Dragon

Once again, Ice Golem comes in handy. 2 Elixir for 4 Elixir!

Mini P.E.K.K.A

Sorry Mini P.E.K.K.A. Skeletons do not like pancakes.


Skeletons and Ice Spirit can easily get the job done. Positive Elixir trade!


Skeletons and Goblins will help you deal with the Prince with ease.

Witch/Electro Wizard

No worries. Goblins again!


Goblins shuts down the Executioner. (It’s a sign… Get them in your deck now!)


Bats or Minions. Your choice!

Elite Barbarians

Goblins + Skeletons combo can shut them down easily.


I believe that Inferno Tower is the cheapest solution for you in this case.

Giant Skeleton

Skeleton Army is the best choice here! 3 Elixir for 6 Elixir!

Hog Rider

Skeleton Army gets the job done. 3 Elixir for 4 Elixir. You can’t find any better deal!

Lumberjack and Miner

Goblins again. Shuts down the Lumberjack for a positive Elixir trade.


Skeletons! 1 Elixir for 4 Elixir. I believe that you can’t shut down Musketeer with less than 1 Elixir xD


Tombstone is the best choice here. With only 3 Elixir, say goodbye to P.E.K.K.A!

3 Musketeers

Both Fireball and Skeleton Army can do this. However, using Fireball requires more skills tho.


Poor Sparky. There are only 3 of them…

Ice Wizard

Skeletons shuts down Ice Wizard. 1 Elixir for 3 Elixir!


Goblins again boyssss.
