What is going on with Clash Royale’s meta nowadays? “Heavy Troops”, that’s what! Let’s take a look at what this term means in the CR universe.
Mega Knight Is Everywhere
Surprise, surprise! Mega Knight (or Meta Knight; see above) is found in almost every deck out there right now and is being paired with other tanks such as Golem and Giant.
While it isn’t as overpowered as when the Night Witch was released, it is still a very powerful Legendary and there has been level 5 Mega Knights on the first day of the Mega Knight Challenge, even before the card is even officially introduced into the game.
Which brings us to our next point.
P.E.K.K.A Is Everywhere Too
During the Mega Knight Challenge, players found out that P.E.K.K.A is the best and natural counter to the Mega Knight. This is reflected on the ladder, seeing how rampant Mega Knight is running (or jumping) around in the arena. P.E.K.K.A can shut him down completely and mount a serious counter push.
P.E.K.K.A is also known as the Tank Killer, effectively countering all land units from Golems to Hog Riders. There’s no reason not to include her in the deck, seeing how she comes out top against so many other troops in the current meta.
Are 3 Musketeers Decks Still Around?
Despite the Mega Knight being a counter while trading positively, and the Heal spell being nerfed, players just love the 3 ladies and continuously found ways to include them in new decks. This demonstrates how strong they still are.
They are part of a 3 Musketeers cycle deck, that consists of the 3 ladies themselves, Bandit, and Elixir pump as the main cards. The ability to keep cycling back to the 3 Musketeers makes it a viable win condition while being supported by other cards.
Surely the meta will change when the nerf hammer drops on the Mega Knight. The Heavy Elixir-dominant meta will be shifted again; stay tuned to SPOUT 360 for more meta CR news & updates.
