Lava Hound Deck That Got Me From Arena 4 to Arena 7

Hi guys, It’s Dexter(Moshin Ahmad) again and this time I am here to share an easy to use Lava Hound Deck I’ve been using recently.This deck is pretty decent against the current Royal Giant Hog meta,Playing both lanes allows you to also catch your opponent off guard. Hopefully this deck will work out well for all you Lava Hound lovers

Card Breakdown


Lava Hound: As the name suggests, this deck centers around the use of the Lava Hound and its Pups. The Hound is a flying Giant without the punch… until the Pups come out to deal the real damage. The goal of this card is to tank to Tower, protecting all troops behind it and then taking out a chunk with the pups.Lava Hound Deck


Minion Horde: More Minions to do more damage! These guys shred through a giant or a tower, if they are hidden behind a tank, making them quite deadly if not taken out immediately. Not much more to be said due to the fact it’s just twice the minions. Again, though, these guys are used to draw out arrows or spells so that any of the other cards can go to work so do not feel bad at a -2 elixir trade if your opponent arrows them.

Spear Goblins: This versatile card features in all my decks because of how handy it is in all situations, even if it might be less effective than Goblins or Archers. The main purpose of this card is to pair it with minions behind the hound. Either your opponent arrows/zaps them leaving room for the pups or let’s them do work while the hound tanks away. Don’t be afraid to use this low cost card on defense to chip away at your opponents cards health from behind your tower or as a distraction to pekkas and Princess.Lava Hound Deck

Cannon: Again, I believe every deck needs a defense card. I prefer the cannon because it is a great counter to Hog with the potential for a positive elixir trade and also distracts the Giant enough to take it out for an even better Elixir trade. Of course you can switch this out for inferno or bomb, it’s based on how you play but I personally like the Cannon.

Fireball: The best direct damage spell in my opinion. Will gain a good elixir advantage over most troops. Has a smaller radius than arrows, so should be aimed carefully. Very versatile because it can one shot most troops, gain good value on most buildings, and can chip away or finish off a tower.

The Baby Dragon’s area damage allows it to effectively support and protect key units such as the Giant and the Giant Skeleton from mass, low-hitpoint units that will deal high damage.This is more effective due to its ability to fly, allowing it to attack without endangering itself

Archers: Slow and squish ranged unit, and pretty cheap in elixir cost. They can be used to counter pretty much any troop, and do a decent amount of damage. Main advantage is that they cannot be arrowed most of the time, assuming you are playing an equal.Lava Hound Deck

Musketeer: Medium health range troop. Like a wizard with less damage but only hits one troop at a time. Very versatile card, can deal a lot of damage quickly. Can be fireballed similar to the wizard if the fireball is one level higher. A musketeer and wizard of the same level have the same health. Also easily assassinated because it is only single targeting. Good for stopping something then supporting a counterpush.Lava Hound Deck

General Gameplan


This deck has 4 parts to it: Hound, Minions+Spear Goblins, Minion Horde, and defense. The first three are all susceptible to arrows or spells but that’s what makes this deck what it is, once drawn out the other two parts have free range. The main goal is to drop the Hound in the corner once 10 elixir is reached. Follow it up with either the Horde or a Minions+Spear Goblins combo. The hopes is that Arrows are drawn out and the Hound can take the tower or that your opponent saves them for the pups and the Horde or combo takes the tower.Lava Hound Deck

Your Own Defense


Cannon and Baby Dragon: That’s your backbone for defense. The Minions and Spear Goblins are just support if needed. If a building targeting troops is being used the Cannon is your primary go to. Save theBaby Dragon for troops sent behind this building targeting troop. The Baby Dragon is also used for other ground troops like the Barbarians, Musketeers, Witches, and Mini P.E.K.K.A for even or positive trades. Sometimes you need an extra punch so don’t be afraid to use minions or the spear goblins to help with pushes from your opponent or the horde if you are really desperate! Lava Hound Deck
