Clash Royale Best Deck Arena 1



Clash Royale Best Deck Arena 1

Clash Royale is a game that has garnered massive popularity in recent days. It’s a unique hybrid of a game that mixes various different types of gameplay elements into one robust video game that you can play for hours on end. Clash Royale is essentially a free to play real time strategy video game, that is created by the incredible developers of Clash of Clans, Supercell. Supercell are known to be heavily experimental with their game design, creating gameplay loops that are unique, different and sometimes strange but always FUN!

Clash Royale is also this kind of game, a wacky, weird mix of multiple blends into a gorgeously animated cocktail that is pleasing to both; your eyeballs and your mind. The game is a mash of different elements, at its core it is a real time strategy game, but it also blends in elements from tower defense games, collectible card games as well as the highly popular multiplayer online battle arena genre of games. So, with this game being so clearly reliant of strategy as its main mode of gameplay and tactical thinking, there’s bound to be a ton of team synergies and compositions that we can use. In this particular article though, we’re going to be focusing solely on the best Arena 1 Decks.


Offensive decks are always fun to play with, especially in a game like Clash Royale where strategy plays the main role. Offensive decks can be fun and exciting for the player, while being detrimentally devastating for the person you’re playing against. A good offensive arena 1 deck in Clash Royale can be something that helps you absolutely obliterate the opposition, and create your way on the battlefield unlike anything else. The best recommendation that we have for an offensive deck is the following:

  • Arrows
  • Musketeer
  • Knight
  • Mini P.E.K.K.A
  • Baby Dragon
  • Barrel Goblins
  • Minions
  • Hog Rider

Before anyone asks, you just need the arrows, they’re crucial. Arrows are extremely vital in giving you the range, area damage as well as the mountains of tower damage that can be highly important in winning the game. Musketeer does help in that regard as well, they don’t have a lot of Area damage but they do have lots of range. You can keep your enemies pinned down, while also getting up close and personal using your Knights, Barrel Goblins, Mini P.E.K.K.A, Minions and Hog Riders. This effectively makes the opposition devoid of any space on the battlegrounds, that’s how you win a game by playing at full offense.


A control deck is all about controlling the map, you need to have so much pressure on your enemy that they cannot even try and gain map control. For this, you require a ton of range, which will keep your enemies away from your tower, while also having just enough of your melee cards that you can keep the enemies from just funneling towards your range cards. It’s a very demanding deck to build, and one that is very unique to handle. Be warned though, it’s difficult to play compared to the offensive build, but still slightly easier than the all-out defensive build. The deck consists of the following:

  • Inferno Dragon
  • The Log
  • Electro Wizard
  • Sparky
  • Mega Knight
  • Bandit
  • Royal Ghost
  • Lumberjack

This are the ingredients you need to create a perfectly controlled recipe for success. The Log is your main range card, this will be what you use for the farthest of attacks, and for devastating combos with Inferno Dragon, which will also provide a ton of range. Oh, what’s that? You need a bit more range? Sparky’s come to party, Sparky will keep everything away from you but on a short leash. Electro Wizard will do exactly what Sparky is doing, but more effectively. Now all that’s remaining is keeping the enemy goons from raiding your ranged party, which is exactly what the remaining of the cards in this deck will do. Yep, you’ve got Bandit, Lumberjack, Mega Knight and Royal Ghost to pick away at the opposition when they’re bleeding out from your ranged gang already. This control deck is by far the strongest one we’ve found so far, and one that is almost always effective.


Now for the players that like to keep their enemies in check, and their tower safe from any harm. This is the deck you should be looking at if you’re a defensive player, one that wants no harm to come to their precious tower, and is willing to throw away the entirety of their resources and powers to keep it that way. A defensive deck implies that you must at all costs, keep your tower from getting harmed, this is effective immediately your most important goal. So, if you are looking for a strong defensive deck; we’ve got the perfect card collection for you to stick in this one!

  • Arrows
  • Mini P.E.K.K.A
  • Musketeer
  • Giant
  • Prince
  • Baby Dragon
  • Skeleton Army
  • Witch

The purpose of this entire deck is to have Mini P.E.K.K.A, Skeleton Army and Prince be the main tanks that will dish out glorious furies of damage to the enemy tower. However, it’s not offense in this case, because the more damage you do to their tower, the less you get on your tower. This is how you use the offensive utility to your advantage, while also keeping the attention on them. You use your Baby Dragon to deal damage to the goons in your main offensive tanks’ way, while using Witch, Arrows and Musketeer to keep the other goons from coming anywhere near your tower. The last one on the list that is remaining is your Giant, and this Giant plays a double sided game between helping your tanks break the enemy tower, and keeping the enemy goons from pushing towards your tower. This is a simplified, tried and tested deck that will constantly prevail in the face of all evil.

In conclusion, these are the three best decks that you can use to absolutely obliterate the competition in Clash Royale’s Arena 1. Arena 1 is by far one of the toughest bits of competition you will find in the game, it’s a tough one to even sit through as a player. However, once you try out any of these tried and tested decks in your competitive gameplay, you’ll be thanking us for saving you a world of pain!
