Arena 2 – Skeleton Tempo Deck
This deck revolves around a particular play style known as tempo. This is where you focus on efficient use of your elixir and play at a fast pace, forcing your opponent to react quickly and make inefficient mistakes with his or her elixir.
Here are the cards in the deck:
- Giant Skeleton
- Skeleton Army
- Goblin Hut
- Spear Goblins
How to Play this Deck
The key to playing this deck is patience and efficiency. You play defense and wait for your opponent to make the first move. You respond to each move with a lower elixir counter. You’ll quickly build up an elixir advantage and then can unleash a devastating counter-attack. It’s a beautiful sight to behold when it plays out!
This deck also allows you to “split the lanes” and keeps your opponent from building up too powerful of an attack on any one side of the battlefield.
Here’s a simple example:
- Your opponent sends in a Giant and Prince to try and take down your tower.
- You respond by dropping the Skeleton Army, which easily overwhelms both attackers. Using 4 elixir, you’ve defeated 10 elixir worth of attackers.
- Now deploy your Giant Skeleton and Spear Goblins in the opposite lane.
What’s happening here? You now have two attacks at once and your opponent will have to overcommit with inefficient elixir usage. He or she will be down to only about 3-4 elixir due to the use of the Giant and Prince and will be unable to easily handle the dual attacks.
