You can replace Freeze Spell with some other low Elixir Cards such as Musketeer, Spear Goblins,… Knight can be replaced by Skeletons and Goblins. Fireball can be replaced by Zap.
Knight: He is great for distracting troops and killing support troops behind tankers (Wizards, Archers, Witch,…). He helps you counter-push with 3 Musketeers. I also usually use hims to prevent the Inferno Tower from killing my P.E.K.K.A.
Dark Prince: This is a good card and can be used to soak damage for your 3 Musketeers. He kills all small units and swarms such as Goblins, Archers,… I usually use Dark Prince to deal with Barbarians then launch the counter push after that. Ensure you place him behind your Tower or far enough so he can charge those Barbarians for dealing splash damage.
Fireball: Fireball is an extremely useful card in Clash Royale. I did write an in-depth guide about this card at here. You can use Fireball to take down Minion Horde, 3 Musketeers, Barbarians, Swarms,…. and finish off weakened Tower.
P.E.K.K.A: I would love to use P.E.K.K.A to deal with Dual Prince by just placing her in front of the Tower. P.E.K.K.A acts as the main tanker for 3 Musketeers. Most of the time you will want to place her behind your King’s Tower so you will have enough Elixir to place support troops after her once she has reached the bridge.
Archers: I usually use Archers to take down Baby Dragon. They can deal a ton of damage when protected by your P.E.K.K.A. Archers are perfect for defending overall.
Elixir Collector: This card can be used to slowly gain an Elixir Advantage and to distract Hog Rider, Balloon, Golem, P.E.K.K.A,… This is definitely one of the best cards at this time.
Freeze: Freeze is a very versatile card that can be used on both offense and defense. I got couples of wins with this card when my opponents try to drop their Barbarians on top of my Musketeers.
Three Musketeers: This is the main card of this deck of course. Coupled with P.E.K.K.A, Dark Prince or Freeze, they can deal a ton of damage and completely destroy any tower within seconds.
Play defensively to gain an Elixir Advantage then place your Elixir Collector. You can place the Elixir Collector at the beginning, when your Elixir bar reaches 10. But be careful, you will not want to place it If you don’t have good defensive cards on your hands (Archers, Knight, Fireball,…). Only place your P.E.K.K.A (7 Elixir) behind your King’s Tower when your Elixir Collector is up. You may also want to place your 3 Musketeer right in the center behind your King’s Tower so they will be split up to 2-1 and you can even push 2 lanes at the same time.
If your opponent plays an Inferno Tower, you can place your P.E.K.K.A when it’s about 50% HP as he will most likely not have cycled back to the Inferno Tower yet. If your opponent places down small troops, use your Dark Prince to back up your P.E.K.K.A.
Elixir Spell is very flexible on both offense and defenses. For example, you can use it to stop Dual Prince backup with splash damaging troops, use your P.E.K.K.A to soak damage later and then immediately place the 3 Musketeers. This is a very simple combo but deadly in counter push.
- Mortar Decks: Place down Elixir Collector in the middle. Don’t panic If Mortar starts hitting your Tower. Most Mortar users usually place Barbarians on the top of the Mortar so you can take advantage of this with Fireball easily.
- Hog decks: Most Hog Decks right now has Freeze so let’s assume that it is a Hog Freeze Combo so it allows you to be well prepared and place cards correctly. Always have your Elixir Collector up and spread your troops out so the opponent can’t Freeze them all at a time.
- Hut Deck: I don’t see many Hut Deck at Arena 7 and Arena 8 but I strongly believe you can wreak them all by placing your P.E.K.K.A + Dark Prince/3 Musketeers on the opposite lane once your opponent has placed down the Barbarian Hut.
- Dual Prince Decks: Use your P.E.K.K.A to soak damage and counter push with Freeze or your Musketeers.
