What is a Slow control Deck?

The slow control deck allows you to defend first and then accumulate several troops slowly in your base to make a gap between the opponent’s defense with the accumulated cards and the entire elixir.

Generally, these decks are used in your tournaments for their defensive effectiveness and their great “control” within the game.

You will see that in this deck there are cards such as PEKKAMinerGraveyard, or Hog Rider because these cards are difficult to defend unless your opponent already knows your cards.

Why are these decks effective?

In low arenas, it is interesting to play this type of deck because it helps to learn how to defend yourself effectively and to know when you can and cannot attack. It is also a good choice when playing defensively if you are not a very good player and you are just starting in Clash Royale.

In tournaments, thanks to the fact that these decks are designed to be long-lasting games, they allow to accumulate a lot of cards behind and then attack very hard. In tournaments, you usually go without some strategy initially and this, if you practice it in the ladder, can help you to have an amazing tournament.

For ladder can be interesting but some decks offer other better advantages for ladder pushing

How do you build a good Slow Control deck?

Generally, you will need one or two Win condition cards that will allow you to secure the victory, these cards are:

Win condition


  • Three Musketeers
  • Goblin Barrel
  • Golem
  • Graveyard
  • Giant
  • Hog Rider
  • Mega Knight

Now let’s go to the cards that are good against air tanks. We generally choose one of these types.

Air tank finishers

  • Archers
  • Bats
  • Minions
  • Mega Minions
  • Musketeer
  • Inferno dragon
  • Minion horde

Let’s take a look at the cards that can stop the hordes of flying enemies. We generally choose one of these types.

Anti flying hordes

  • Ice spirit
  • Fire spirits
  • Executioner
  • Witch
  • Princess
  • Baby Dragon

We will have to defend ourselves on certain occasions against enemies with low health so we will need at least one or two of these cards.

Low-damage Spells

  • Arrows
  • Tornado
  • The Log
  • Giant Snowball

On quite a few occasions you will find that there are small enemy cards left but you can easily stop them with one or two mini tanks.

Mini tank

  • Knight
  • Mini PEKKA
  • Baby dragon
  • Valkyrie
  • Fisherman
  • Bandit

Finally, we will finish the list with a spell that will allow you to wipe out a large horde of enemies in case things get really bad.

High-damage spells

  • Rocket
  • Fireball
  • Lightning

With this, we would have several interesting decks that you can easily build by yourself.

How can you play these control decks?

Control decks allow you to control the use of elixir to progressively chip away at the enemy tower. This is done thanks to the win condition cards in the deck, such as the three musketeers, Pekka, the Barrel of Goblins, Cemetery, etc…

These cards will allow you to slowly damage the enemy and will be the main base of your attack. So depending on the slow control deck you choose, you will need one win condition or another. Think as if you have a VERY DEFENSIVE deck and you only have one card to attack, then this is the type of Slow control deck.
