The 7-day bracket plays of the Clash Royale Crown Championship Global Series tournament just ended on May 27. The meta that was seen during this period have been a hot topic amongst Clash Royale players, specifically the many decks used to win games and claim bragging rights.
Throughout these seven days, LavaLoon and Splashyard has been the 2 dominant decks appearing almost every day. The Night Witch can be seen in the winning decks on Day 7; this shows how strong the new legendary card is, just one day after she is available to be used.
True, there were other decks being used such as the Golem Beatdown and Three Musketeers deck. However, the LavaLoon deck is the most dominant deck in this meta, with different variants of support troops and spells complementing well with this air version of the Beatdown deck.
With that in mind, here are the most successful deck builds of this tournament bracket.
Dani (Winner) vs Baourix
The match was an even fight. But it was until Dani dropped his 2nd Balloon on the left lane that things got real; Dani knew that baourix cannot cycle fast enough to his Inferno Tower, which resulted in baourix’s Left Tower taken down. From there on, Dani just had to withstand the barrage of spells to win the match.
Lucifer (Winner) vs Skillz
Lucifer went up against a Bowler-Graveyard deck. However, his troops are tanky enough to survive a follow-up Poison to the Graveyard, paving his way towards victory.
CMcHugh (Winner) vs B-Rad
Splashyard decks proved to be lethal on offense and tough to break through on defense. Note: there were 4 Splashyard decks among the winners.
This special variant of the Splashyard deck, which replaced the Bowler for Executioner, counters B-Rad’s Miner-Poison deck in every area, including the LavaLoon deck he used in this best of 3 series.
xPedro15 (Winner) vs Santiago
It was deep into overtime that Pedro came up top over Santiago using his Splashyard Deck against the strong 3 Musketeer deck. The Night Witch will definitely make more appearance in the Round Robin stage because of how strong she was in Day 7’s matches. As we mentioned before, she immediately made an impact in the bracket plays just 1 day after she was available for unlocking via the Night Witch Draft Challenge.
Oxalate (Winner) vs ThatOneGuy 1.1
This fight was a mirror match, with the main difference being Oxalate using the Poison spell and ThatOneGuy using Lightning. There was a lot of to-and-fro action between the 2 players, but a mistimed Lightning allowed Oxalate to push in hard with Poison having more synergy with the Graveyard.
X-bow decks, Miner decks and Spell-bait decks (Only 1 in the Top 24, FYI) fell short of the meta as none of these archetypes managed to break through to the Top 8 of each region. This showed that even though these decks were lethal in competition, they were struggling to keep up with the current meta. The meta is now shifting towards a heavier beatdown style rather than concentrating on chip damage over time.
One can expect many mirror matchups when the Top 8 from each region faces off in the Round Robin on June 10. Players will most likely be crafting their decks to counter the aforementioned two popular decks right now. At any rate, we are excited to see how the next phase of the CCGS will turn out!
