Clash Royale: discover all deck archetypes

Beatdown decks

As is mentioned in this post about Beatdown decks in Clash Royale, this archetype is based in high-life tanks that will soak all the incoming damage, and then the troops behind it will finish the enemy’s Towers. You need to defend and try to obtain an elixir advantage (try to defend with less elixir than the opponent’s attack, even if you receive tower damage). Then in double Elixir, build a strong push to finish the Tower. These are the best beatdown decks in 2021:

Cycle decks

This archetype is called Cycle because you play low elixir cards to get to a particular card again (it doesn’t have to be your win condition, you can cycle to get to a spell, for example, a Fireball).

The Cycle decks tend to fall against Lava Hound decks, as most of these decks don’t have a good air defense.

Check out these decks to see which ones you like:

Control decks

This archetype consists of good defense and better counter-attack. In order to succeed with Control decks, you need to build an elixir advantage, defend with less elixir than the enemy’s push.

There are different types of control decks, cheaper ones with Miner/Hog Rider and heavier ones with Graveyard, for example.

Here are the best control decks for 2021:

Miner Wall Breakers deck

Graveyard deck

Spawner decks

This is considered the dirtiest archetype in Clash Royale, as you just have to plant your Spawner structure and win games. Besides this, it’s not easy to play as everyone thinks, you have to control the elixir all times or you’ll be punished so easily.

With the new cards of 2021 (especially Mother Witch), Spawner decks are increasing their presence. Here are the best spawner decks in Clash Royale:

Electro Giant MK Spawner deck

Elite Barbarian Spawner deck

Goblin Giant Spawner deck

Spell Bait decks

As its name indicates, these Spell Bait decks are based on making the enemy use a spell on one troop in order to punish him using other cards. For example, in Log bait, the more Princess’ you have on the field, the better, so you have to bait with Goblin Barrel or Goblin Gang.

Here are the best Spell bait decks of 2021:

Classic Log Bait

Skeleton Barrel Bait

Royal Hogs Fireball Bait

Spell Cycle decks

The win condition of these decks are Spells, you’ll be cycling Rockets, Poison, Fireballs, and Earthquakes to win the game. Defend with less elixir and punish the enemy with tower damage whenever it places a card nearby.

These decks are not that popular anymore as Supercell decreased spell tower damage a lot of times, but they are worth to be mentioned as an archetype.

Check out these decks:

Miner Spell cycle

Poison Rocket Spell cycle

Earthcuacke Rocket Spell cycle

Siege decks

The Siege decks are based on a structure as a unique win condition. This is reduced to Mortar and X-bow.

Mortar bait decks are not considered Siege archetype as Mortar is a secondary win condition. You can always check the following post of Siege decks for 2021.

Here are the best Siege decks in Clash Royale:
