Today we have SamyBDZ on the channel sharing this traditional bridge spam deck. If you saw my video featuring VULKan you’ll know this is a fairly high skill cap deck. Bridge spam decks have been a stable archetype in the game for a long time, thy require you to control the tempo of the match and punish your opponent when they’re low on elixir or when they don’t have a good counter in cycle. One if my favourite things about bridge spam decks is that you can easily split lane push which makes it very difficult for your opponent to defend both lanes. In some circumstances you should tower trade, this is because this deck will be stronger if you can drop units in the pocket. You can see from today’s replays that Samy will play this deck passively on defence and aggressively on offence particularly on the dual lane push.
The bandit and battle ram will be your main spam units. You can use them simultaneously in both lanes to apply dual lane pressure. Practise with the bandit and learn her dash range to get maximum value from her when you play her defensively.
Electro wizard is a solid defensive unit because of his enter the arena ability and his stun mechanic. He is a great counter to charging units and can also protect your pekka from inferno dragon or inferno tower.
Pekka is a great tank killer and can also be used to block up lanes on defence. If the opponent plays a lava hound In the back you can play this unit at the bridge on offence. Also have your spells ready to support her and increase the chances of her reaching their towers. You should always counter push behind her or apply opposite lane pressure.
Early game you can start out the match with a bandit or a ghost at the bridge. You can also play magic archer behind your towers to see what big spells your opponent is playing. Ensure you protect your magic archer throughout the match and always use his long range to your advantage. Early game it’s ok to tower trade.
Double elixir you can start using this deck a lot more aggressively in both lanes and using your spells to support your pushes. Remember this is a dual lane deck so continue to play it as one even if you’ve already taken a tower. Goodluck with this deck everyone!
