Clash Royale- Graveyard Lava Hound Deck Anti Meta Deck
My name is Md Aaqib,I am currently level 8 and this morning, after a lucky Graveyard out of a magic chest (from chest cycle).I saw all the top players using Graveyard ,I feel this Graveyard Lava Hound Deck is one of the best I’ve ever created. This Graveyard Lava Hound Deck gets me on average around 10 wins in challenges, and I’ve won close to 20 challenges with this deck. For me, this deck is strictly used for tournaments and challenges. so let’s take a look on this Graveyard Lava Hound Deck guide
Lava Hound: The main tank of this deck.He’s a slow, air tank that, when killed, spawns 6 Lava Pups, that are similar to minions, but weaker. He is usually played at x2 elixir, or when you have a huge elixir advantage, and You never want to send a lava hound alone! He will do next to nothing if he’s alone locked on the tower. Also, make sure to use Graveyard spells with your support troops, so that the pups+skeletons can make maximum damage.
Graveyard: Your main way of destroying towers. Easily one of the most destructive cards in the game. This card can even take a tower by itself! Keep cycling to this card and your tank to deal MASSIVE damage together. Graveyard is really unique and powerful. Maybe the Skeleton Army? Or Goblin Barrel? But anyways, you really want to cycle to this card and your tank so you can take towers easily.
Mini Pekka: The star of this deck. He’s the main win condition, and the heavy hitter. Useful on both offense, to defend against Hogs and RG, and offense, to chop away enemy support troops and his tower. Make sure to always support him with the Princess or Goblins, as he is easily distracted by any ground card. He is also a handy tank for the pups, if he is still alive.
Mega Minion – A flying Mini PEKKA that moves at the speed of a Valkyrie. When dropped behind a Lava Hound, the Mega Minion can handle nearly anything your opponent uses to counter the Lava Hound. Mega Minion is very strong against Giant / Bowler decks as the Bowler cannot attack air. Mega Minion can live through a Fireball two levels higher, so it can handle quite a bit of punishment.
Furnace: In my opinion this is one of the most powerful cards at tournament standard. A pair of spirits completely wipes out minions, goblins, skeletons, and any other squishy troop. You really have to get good at knowing the pull depth of all of the tanks. This is something I struggle with, because I get stressed and make bad plays when I see a giant push barreling down the lane.
Zap – Even with the reduction in its stun duration, Zap is still a powerful card and is useful in so many situations. I tried switching Zap our for Arrows but found that the utility it provides is just too much to pass up on. Use it to take out smaller troops that are good at distracting your Mini P.E.K.K.A. or at defending against
Miner: He is the core of your deck and will gladly take out your opponents Pumps and Princesses as well as taking their tower. Use him to counter push and to tank for your other troops while you let them decimate their towers. He is one of the best cards in the game as he’s a mini tank that you can spawn anywhere in the arena. There is no substitute for him and any level Miner will do the job in this deck.
Ice Spirit – For 1 elixir, even with the recent nerf, the Ice Spirits still provide a ton of versatility in the deck!
- Well, as the name implies, cycle to your Graveyard and your Lavahound! For this at the beginning of a match, what I usually do if I have my tank and my Graveyard, I just go with it. Right now, people are still figuring out how to counter Graveyard. So surprise them with your luck, and wreck their tower. Of course, some people watched Yarn’s video on how to counter it, (Curse you, orange juice!) so it will become more of a risky play. But even if they are prepared, Graveyard Lava Hound Deck
- This deck counters all the things that make Graveyard obsolete! If you play this deck right, then Graveyard can easily take a tower. For example though, Zap kills goblins, fireball + Zap kills barbarians! But the main strategy is to cycle to the cards you need. You can’t just send a Graveyard alone. Graveyard Lava Hound Deck
- Well maybe now cause people don’t know how to counter it, but later on people will just get used to it. Similar to Sparky, in how she is feared when you first see her, but when you calm down and get used to it, the opponent will have wasted 6 Elixir. But you need your tank and your support spells. Like I said earlier, people don’t know how to counter it, so maybe a tank plus Graveyard could work.
- However, in testing this deck in challenges, I saw some players that could counter it very well. So just in case they are one of those good players, always bring your support spells. But with Graveyard, you really need to BE CAREFUL. One slip up and you could activate the king tower. So make sure you don’t try to quick play it. Practice first if you want to be able to do that, like I did. Graveyard Lava Hound Deck
