Clash Royale, an online strategy game, is a multiplayer title where players battle each other using cards. There are five different rarities of these cards: Common, Rare, Epic, Champion, and Legendary.

These cards are combined to form an 8-card deck, which is then used to attack the opponent's towers in combat. An ideal deck should include defensive and offensive cards to help players win battles.

The Hog Cycle deck is one of the strongest decks in Clash Royale. It is the perfect battle deck for Arena 8 or above and is made up of the following cards:

"Don't be fooled by her delicately coiffed hair, the Musketeer is a mean shot with her trusty boomstick."

The Musketeer is a single-target rare card with significant damage unlocked during Clash Royale Training. As it can easily target air and ground forces, the Musketeer is an excellent backup for the Ice Golems.

Attack strategy

Players should deploy the Ice Golem card first since it can easily eat a lot of damage and attack opponent cards with Musketeers, Hogs, and Valkyrie as support troops. Use Zap spells, log, and Fireballs while attacking to finish low-hitpoint cards like Minions, Skeleton Army, and so on. Cannons should be used to divert enemy cards.
