Control Lava Hound Tornado Deck Arena 8
Hi guys, It’s Dexter again and this time I am here to share an easy to use Lava Hound Tornado Deck This deck is pretty decent against decks with Giant / Bowler / Sparky, and The Lava Hound is your main line of defense, so always put him on the active side of the arena.Playing both lanes allows you to also catch your opponent off guard.Tornado is very Good Against Tank Like Golem,Pekka,Royale Giant I’ll be running through each and every card, how they work together, and their weaknesses. Let’s start Lava Hound Tornado Deck !
Lava Hound: You know how this works. As the meta matures around Lava Hound you’re seeing more people use LH as a defensive tank that distracts musketeers/ice wiz/etc while mega minion destroys the rest of a push. This took me a long time to learn but has made a huge difference in win rates once I understood the value of the distraction. Lava Hound by itself does not do much damage, most of the damage output is done by the Lava Pups that spawn after the Lava Hound is destroyed.The goal of this card is to tank to Tower, protecting all troops behind it and then taking out a chunk with the pups. (Replacement Miner)
Mega Minion: Your sword and shield. Excellent on both offense and defense. Use in conjunction with Ice Spirit to deal with a variety of cards such as Hog, Mini Pekka, Giant, LH. MM really feels like a 4-cost card because of the high damage and moderate HP. Some like to say its an aerial Mini Pekka and that description is pretty accurate. I usually put MM behind LH for my main push. Sometime I will tempo/rush and place them both at the bridge when I know I’m at an Elixir advantage. Lava Hound Tornado Deck
Tornado: This card is a 3 Elixir arena damage spell with moderate damage and a wide radius.At tournament standard, it deals 58 damage per second For a total of 178 damage over 3 seconds.It does not damage buildings, so you don’t need to worry about activating the King’s Tower It can pull both air and ground units, dealing damage similar to Zap It won’t kill anything stronger than stab Goblins.Since P.E.K.K.A and Golem load time are pretty long, you can easily use Tornado to pull them to the other lane If they are near the center.
Zap: Even with its last change, Zap remains the best utility spell in the game. For the purposes of this deck, it is mainly reserved for zapping units inside the Tornado radius, resetting Inferno Tower, and finishing off damaged troops. Zap with conjunction of the princess can clear minion hordes on offense in a second. Can be used to reset Sparky, kill equal level Goblins, and to make minions 1 shot from your tower. Also useful for those last HP of the tower, and to stun and reset any Prince charge. Lava Hound Tornado Deck
Ice Wizard: A beast on defense. This card has amazing synergy with inferno tower because it provides the IT extra time to melt tanks, even if it’s Zapped. It’s also strong with Mini Pekka and Goblins because it slows down enemy troops, giving your DPS troops more time to do work. The splash damage is also very effective against swarm troops and spawners. Fun fact: An Ice Wizard/Mini Pekka combo can prevent a hog rider from getting any hits on your tower. replacement Kinght/Minions/Archers
Musketeer: Super versatile card which can easily help you in almost any situation. She can deal tons of damage while being raged. Before the x2 Elixir time, try to do some mini pushes with her and others to cycle back to the Lava. Lava + Musketeer is my favorite push. This combo can easily take out a Tower If your opponent doesn’t know how to deal with it properly. Lava Hound Tornado Deck
Mini pekka: Mini Pekka: Main damage dealer, and the Heavy Hitter of the deck. He’s awesome on defense vs huge tanks and glass cannons, and even a 1HP Mini Pekka can turn into an amazing counterpush on offense. Use primarily on offense when you have an elixir advantage, or on defense vs Hogs, RGs, Giants or glass cannons. Don’t forget to support him on offense, or he will be countered very easily!
Tombstone: Doot-fucking-doot. Tombstone is another card you can use to get an advantage over your opponent. The nearly constant stream of skeletons distracts units, defends against them, as well as supports a push. Use Tombstone to distract Giant, Hogs, RG, Mini Pekka, MM, Prince, etc etc etc. The list really goes on and on. Those little skeletons really do work on a lot of pushes. Can also act as a cycling card because of the low cost. When Tombstone isn’t defending your towers, its working on making sure your opponents tower is punished. The swarm of Larry’s cannot be left alone if there is LH or Miner on the tower.
I’ll start by considering the possible starting hands and the best openings, a topic often forgotten in deck guides, especially because most of the opponents will let you make the first move.
From the best scenario to the worst:
- Start with a Lava Hound from the back corner (not from behind the King Tower). This is the best opening if they start a slow push from the back Othewise, do this only if you have MM or Tombstone + Tornado or The Zap in your hand.
- Place a proactive Tombstone in the middle. If your opponent has yet to deploy a card, drop your Tombstone three tiles away from the river to draw aggro from both lanes, otherwise four tiles away from the river on the lane the enemy troops are coming from.
- Start with a MM from the back.
- Start with the ID from the back. This is really a bad opening, do this only if your opponent doesn’t really want to play first. Lava Hound Tornado Deck
- This spell seriously counters Miner. If your opponent plays the Miner like below, use your Tornado to force him to activate the King’s Tower:
- If your opponent uses the Tornado on defense, take the advantage of this by using Lava/Musketeer/Minipekka to speed them up.
- Mini pekka is your Main Defence to take out Giant Royale giant and other tanks
- It does not damage buildings, so you don’t need to worry about activating the King’s Tower
Thank you for reading such a long Lava Hound Tornado Deck post, I really hope you will find it useful!
