Bowler / Royal Giant Combo Deck
Best Bowler/Royal Giant Clash Royale Arena 8 Deck
I broke down and bought my first 3 SMC the other day and happened to get Sparky, Log and enough Bowlers to reach level 4. I've tried using Sparky and just didn't have much luck. I'm sure I'm not playing it right...but anyways this isn't about her. It's about the Bowler!
I've been rocking this Bowler/RG deck for about a week now and have joined 2 tournies...granted just the random 100 person tournaments and have gone 21-2 in those. I've had a pretty solid win percentage in the regular ladder as well reaching my highest trophy count with it.
The last two cards I've done a lot of experimenting with. The original was Ice Spirit and Knight. I've tried swapping Guards for the Knight and I liked that as it gave more targets and was a bit of a Sparky counter. Most recently I've landed on The Log and Cannon...log could be replaced with Arrows though. There's a lot of play in those last two as long as they are cheap. The average cost currently is 3.1 despite two 6 elixir cards.
General Gameplay: How to Use this Deck
I usually try to start off the game with a Royal Giant if he's in my opening hand. Play it up in the lane to attack immediately and figure out how they choose to counter. This will be big going forward because you'll learn the support troops you need. If I don't have RG on the open I'll generally just send chip damage with Goblins or Spear Goblins. I never support that RG on the first play though.
The Bowler will be your defense of the counter push that happens after the RG goes down. It's normally going to be a Mini Pekka, Barbarians or Valkyrie that took down your RG. The opponent will follow up with some Goblins or Hog Rider a lot of time and the Bowler will wreck all of that. Use a bit of support or spells as necessary to help the Bowler.
Ideally, after the counter push is handled you'll be able to follow the Bowler with your second RG and continue on in a similar pattern slowly beating down the opposite tower.
Give the deck a shot if you have at least a level 2 or 3 Bowler! It's a lot of fun. There's not much more satisfying in the game for me so far than mowing down an entire Skeleton Army with one boulder! I still laugh each time 🙂
