[Top 15] Clash Royale Best Decks That Wreck Hard! (2023)

Many players spend far too much time limited to only one or two decks. The issue is that your decks should vary as frequently as the metagame. That is if you’d like to win and “HEHEHEHA” your opponents more often.

I’ve gathered a list of the top 15 Clash Royale best decks to help you out. Pick at least two to cycle between and you’ll never get stuck in a losing streak again. The decks are not in a particular order, so you can freely pick the ones that fit your card levels.

15. Lavaloon Baby Dragon

[Top 15] Clash Royale Best Decks That Wreck Hard! (1)

3.9 elixir deck

This Lavaloon Baby Dragon deck is a great all-rounder. Synergy is top-notch. It’s balanced. Highly rated in both attack and defense. Above all, it’s super fun to play with. The deck withstood the test of time. It has proven to be effective during different metas and across all tiers.

If you’re careful at the beginning of the game. Meaning you don’t risk overly aggressive trades before double elixir, you’ll have a pretty solid late-game. Once you reach the x2 elixir, just unleash the beast within.

What Lavaloon Baby Dragon excels in:

  • Balanced deck, you won’t have trouble on either attack or defense.
  • Strong late game, the double elixir phase allows you to be aggressive while not losing many trades.
  • Not widely used, many players won’t come prepared with anti-air units. They’ll be caught totally off-guard.

14. PEKKA Zap Bridge Spam

[Top 15] Clash Royale Best Decks That Wreck Hard! (2)

3.9 elixir deck

With tonnes of low-elixir units, the PEKKA Zap bridge spam deck is super flexible. It has great potential against almost all types of decks. Keep playing the low-cost cards before double elixir and don’t hesitate to use the PEKKA in defense. For only 7 it can block a 20-elixir push all on its own, talk about OP huh?

What PEKKA Zap bridge spam excels in:

  • Has high overall stats, you won’t have trouble on either attack or defense.
  • Spammy, keeps pressure on your opponents with annoying cards such as the bandit and the magic archer.

13. Mortar Skarrel Zap Bait

[Top 15] Clash Royale Best Decks That Wreck Hard! (3)3.1 elixir deck

A knight and a musketeer defending your mortar? That’s just annoying as hell, to your opponent. This mortar deck also baits your opponent’s zap for an extra layer of complexity. Running a low average-elixir deck, you can out-trade your opponent and land a few mortar ticks along the way.

What Mortar Skarrel Zap Bait excels in:

  • Good defense, nothing beats a solid 3-elixir knight topped with a musketeer. Complement with a few goblins or spells.
  • Slow but steady, if you master the deck, you’ll be able to control the game.
  • Early game, you can out-trade your opponent. Especially if he has a high average-elixir deck.

12. Loon Freeze Control

[Top 15] Clash Royale Best Decks That Wreck Hard! (4)

3.9elixir deck

Control decks rely on defensive cards and good trades. Right at the start, you’ll see from the stats. The defense is maxed out. Three top-rated defense cards should do the trick. The Bowler, Inferno Dragon, and Baby Dragon can block a variety of pushes. Once you out-trade your opponent, get ready to wreck his towers with your Lumberjack, Balloon, and Freeze.

What Loon Freeze Control excels in:

  • Good defense, nothing beats a solid 3-elixir knight topped with a musketeer. Add a few goblins/spells to complement.
  • Slow but steady, if you master the deck, you’ll be able to control the game.
  • Early game, you can out-trade your opponent. Especially if he has a high average-elixir deck.

11. Pigs on Parade

[Top 15] Clash Royale Best Decks That Wreck Hard! (5)4.3 elixir deck

The name says it all. You’ll be spamming hogs onto your opponent like never before. Yet, the deck also relies on a good defense. If you correctly use your witch to counter-attack, you’ll be able to do some serious pushes. The only downside is that there is no air tank killer unit. If a Lavahound pushes you, it will cause some trouble, manageable trouble for sure.

What Pigs on Parade excels in:

  • Very strong defense; Guards, Zappies, Flying Machine, what else do you need?
  • Early game trades, use your witch wisely.
  • Counterattack, you can easily turn a good defense into a strong offense.

10. Double Elixir Lava Clone

[Top 15] Clash Royale Best Decks That Wreck Hard! (6)3.9elixir deck

The double elixir lava clone acts as a zap bait deck too. Once you reach double elixir, your opponent will have trouble defending against all of the swarms. Add a clone spell to your hound as well, maybe throw in a “HEHEHEHA” too, and you’ll be good to go.

What Double Elixir Lava Clone excels in:

  • Good synergy, your cards will complement each other really well.
  • Strong defense, three air units that attack anything.
  • Surprise effect, the clone allows you to surprise your opponent late game.

9. Ram Rage Mega Knight Archer Queen

[Top 15] Clash Royale Best Decks That Wreck Hard! (7)4.0 elixir deck

Strong on both offense and defense, get ready to give your opponent some trouble. Take care of lava hound decks as there is no air tank killing unit on this deck. But, it is totally manageable with your Archer Queen, Lightning, and sometimes the Ram Rider.

Ram Rage Mega Knight Archer Queen excels in:

  • Double elixir, having a relatively high average elixir means you’ll have to wait for double elixir to use the deck’s full potential.
  • Strong against ground decks, air decks would be a bit harder.
  • Tough attacking units, you’ll have no trouble bringing 1 tower down with one push all while putting pressure on the other lane.

8. Skeleton King Giant Skeleton Graveyard

[Top 15] Clash Royale Best Decks That Wreck Hard! (8)4.1 elixir deck

Although this deck doesn’t have the strongest offense, nothing tops a good defense and a graveyard counterattack. Your opponent will find it extremely difficult to reach your towers with all of these defensive units. Not a bad deal right? It’s also super fun to play with.

What Skeleton King Giant Skeleton Graveyard excels in:

  • Godly defense, whether you’re facing an air deck or a ground one, you have the cards to do the trick.
  • Double elixir, having a relatively high average elixir means you’ll have to wait for double elixir to use the deck’s full potential.

What Goblin Giant Balloon beatdown excels in:

  • Double lane pressure, use a Goblin Giant with a balloon on a side. For the other lane a Mini PEKKA.

2. Rascals Prince Guards Bait

[Top 15] Clash Royale Best Decks That Wreck Hard! (14)

3.8elixir deck

Defensive decks with low average elixir are a nightmare to everyone, except those who are using them. The Dart Goblin, Princess, and The Rascals are a few of the toughest defensive units.
