SaintBelikin is back on my channel after a very long time bribing us this Off-Meta LavaHound Clone Deck. This deck is incredibly powerful, you should play it with a zap or spell bait element in mind, cloning at the correct times can decimate the opponents towers especially after the balance change that clone got a few weeks ago. Belikin says the clone is the most important card in the deck, some times you’ll require a large push just to simply take out units like rascals just like Belikin did in the first replay. You will have to tower trade in some situations when using this deck, mainly if you know you can’t fully defend their push then that is a good time to tower trade or even have a race for the three crown. You only have two ground units, the mini pekka and the skarmy for defence, however these both work fine because you can support them with units like bats or flying machine. If the opponent has barb barrel play the skarmy lower down on defence so they can’t get value on the skarmy.
Belikin will play this card in the back to start out a push, baby dragon is a good support card to use for protection from swarm units like minions or bats. Use this card to tank tower damage and clone her just before her pops.
Clone spell is a good card is very important to use effectively in order to win some of the more tricky matchups. Belikin will clone most of his lava hound pushes, providing he can bait out cards like Tornado and zap. Try to clone as many units as possible and always clone the lava hound before she pops and spawns the pups.
Mini pekka is one of two ground units in the deck. You will rely on her for defence against hogs, giant, golem, RG and Bridge Spam decks. If you know your opponent doesn’t have an answer in hand to deal with the pekka you can play her at the bridge behind your lava hound like Belikin did in the last match of the video.
Early game I would wait to see if the opponent makes he first play and if no cards have been played after 15 seconds then I would start out the match with either bats or mega minion. I wouldn’t use either of your ground troops because you might rely on them for defence. You could start out the match with lava hound if you have mini pekka in hand to defend the opposite lane if they rush it.
During double elixir you can start to play more aggressively just like Belikin does, he will play a hound behind a push to keep applying that pressure and forcing the opponent to defend. Check out the video to see how Belikin says this deck against different archetypes!
