This is the hottest cycle deck right now and it’s been played in today’s video by Samuel Bassotto who has finished #1 in the world 3 times! The mini pekka and magic archer make this deck extremely strong on defence, you also have you cycle units which can help you make positive elixir trades. The giant and miner combo give you two tanks in this deck which also means you can apply dual lane pressure during double elixir. Use the magic archers range you to advantage and try to avoid giving your opponent good spell value, try to protect him as much as possible and try to stack magic archers once you’re in double elixir. On a counter push I recommend playing the miner towards the back of their tower so and defence units they play are kited back to the miner. Use your spells to support your troops and always try to get maximum spell value, in double elixir you can make prediction plays if you know what units your opponent has in cycle.
Mini pekka is your main defensive unit against tanks like golem or giant, she can also be used to help defend against hogs, ram rider, battle ram etc. On offence try to support this card as much as possible because it can deal a ton of damage if it connects to your opponents tower.
Snowball is one of two spells in this deck and it can also be used as a cycle card if required. It has a knock back effect which works well against balloon or hogs. It also has a slow effect which can help your units win the battle at the bridge.
Giant is your main tank in this deck, in single elixir you’ll play him more at the bridge on a counter push, however in double elixir you can play him in the back and start to build up a bigger push. You can also play him in him in the centre to kite units into the opposite lane, this works well against pekka, prince, ghost, baby d etc.
Early game you can start out the match with a miner in the safe spot, cycling skeletons or even playing a magic archer in the back. Learn what deck your opponent is playing before going to aggressive. Use your miner to acquire chip damage while making positive elixir trades on defence.
Double elixir you should start to ramp up to offensive pressure, apply dual lane pressure if you can and remember to try to get multiple magic archers on the field. Take all spell value you can especially if you can get some tower chip damage. Don’t forget to check out the video to see one of the best players in the world using this deck!
