You’ve finally unlocked the mighty Hog Rider, congrats! In Arena 5 you have a total of 6 new cards to explore. If you’re still wondering what the best decks are to use so you can climb up the arenas, then this article is for you.

I’ve gathered a list of the top 10 arena decks that will definitely help you out. The list isn’t sorted in a particular order, so you’ll be able to pick a deck that suits you according to the card levels you have.


10. Miner Wall Breakers

3 elixir deck

With strong defense and a 3.0 average elixir, this deck has some potential to wreck your opponents hard. Against other heavy decks, you’ll be controlling the game completely. Keep getting good trades on defense and use this to chip damage on the other lane with your Miner or Wall Breakers.

What Miner Wall Breakers excels in:

  • Chip damage, trade well and send your Miner/Wall Breakers.
  • Counterattack, with such a strong defense you’ll be able to have a lot of elixir on your hands to counterattack often,
  • Early game, due to the low average elixir you can out beat your opponent early on.

9. PEKKA Witch Bait

3.6 elixir deck

The PEKKA Witch Bait is a great defensive/counter-attack deck. You’d want to defend with your PEKKA and counter-attack by putting the Witch behind. To spice things up you can send your goblin barrel with your PEKKA, OR send it with a barbarian barrel to the other lane.

What PEKKA Witch Bait excels in:

  • Late game, at double elixir you’ll out beat your opponent easily.
  • Strong defense, you’ve got a PEKKA, what else do you need?
  • Balanced, you won’t face many counter decks.

8. Hog Valk 2.9 Cycle

2.9 elixir deck

Although the attack of this deck isn't the best, the low average elixir cost will make up for it. Your ability to send your hog rider swiftly will catch both you and your opponent off guard. You won't have any trouble keeping enemies away from your towers because the defense is also quite strong.

What Hog Valk 2.9 Cycle excels in:

  • Early game, you’ll definitely out-trade your opponent many times.

What Giant Skeleton Push excels in:

  • Has high overall stats, you won’t have trouble on either attack or defense.
  • Good against both ground and air decks.
  • Early game, most cards cost low elixir, leave the Giant Skeleton for the double elixir period or use it if it’s a must.
