Mortar is a 4-Elixir building currently available as a boosted card in Season 39 of Clash Royale – Clash Fest. The card is usually seen in the cycle decks. Players in the Legendary League often meet with a Mortar user. Having a deck with a building like Mortar or Xbow generally requires a good amount of skill to be able to do wonders with the deck, as these two buildings can take down a tower all by themselves. In this guide, we shall list the top 3 Mortar decks that players of different playstyles can look forward to if they wish to adapt to a Mortar deck in Clash Royale.
Top 3 Mortar decks in Clash Royale
1. Mortar Swarm
Average Elixir: 3.3
Most, if not all Mortar decks have a primary motive to keep cycling to the Mortar card to chip severe damage to the Crown towers now and then. In terms of offensive play with this deck, players can take advantage of cards like a Minion Horde and Goblin gang, where both spawn in a group, hence covering the Mortar firmly.
Place the Mortar right when the swarm of cards has been deployed, and target one of the Crown towers. Once targeted, players should only focus on defending the building. Miner being the secondary offensive card can come in handy to chip a fair amount of damage slowly and take the enemy’s Crown tower by surprise.
While Mortar is the lone card for the offensive part of the deck, the other cards present in the deck can support the Mortar by protecting it against enemy attacks. Rascals can be used as a tank to cover the Mortar from heavy troops such as P.E.K.K.A, Golem, Giant Skeleton, etc. Swarm troops such as the Goblin Gang and Minion Horde can take down enemies such as mini P.E.K.K.A, Knight, and other lighter tanks. The spells in the deck – Barbarian Barrel and Giant Snowball, can be used to support the side anytime during a game.
2. Mighty Miner Mortar Cycle
Average Elixir: 2.9
As usual, the Mortar should be placed in such a way that it can hit the Crown towers. The miner can be used to hit the tower and keep the enemy under pressure. The Mighty Miner is extremely dangerous when it touches the tower, hence, ensure that the Mighty Miner reaches the tower to obtain his complete potential.
Musketeer is a highly versatile card as she plays a big role in the offensive and defensive parts of the deck. Speaking of her offensive abilities, she can provide support to the Mighty Miner and could prove costly to the enemy if left unnoticed, as she deals a lot of damage.
Speaking of the defensive part of the deck, we’ve got the Skeletons for distractions and deck rotation, Fire Spirit to deal significant damage against a swarm of troops, Musketeer to take care of anything that comes her way, and Mighty Miner to take down large troops with ease.
The Log can be used for obvious reasons, such as clearing off a herd of troops like a skeleton army, acting as a counter to goblin barrel, and pushing back troops dealing fair damage. While there are a decent number of cards for defense, we also have the Fireball that can take down/damage the important support troops such as the Wizard, Witch, Musketeer, and other troops of similar HP.
3. Skeleton King Miner Mortar
Average Elixir: 3.3
The Skeleton King, often regarded as one of the most destructive cards in Clash Royale, is still quite deadly even after the minor nerf he received. He can be used to push either of the lanes with the support of the Musketeer and Bats. Make use of the Mortar here to assist the troops and eventually start damaging the Crown tower.
While the enemy troops are engaged with the troops deployed, a Miner at the back would come as a surprise and hence take a decent amount of damage to the Crown tower. The Poison spell can also be used at the same time to deal damage over time to the troops near the Crown tower.
With a defense strong enough to counter most of the quick pushes, this deck contains all sorts of defensive units required to handle such attacks. The Poison spell can be used to counter Graveyard; Musketeer can take down any troop with less-moderate HP, as well as deal great damage to the higher ones. In the case of heavy troops, the Skeleton King can be used ahead of the Musketeer to take them down. The Mortar can also act as a supportive unit by placing it in the center, however, it is not the most effective method for defense.
Trying to master a Mortar deck would be rather difficult than ever, unlike an X-Bow deck. Nevertheless, players who wish to get good practice with cards outside their expertise can give it a try, whereas those who are already high in trophies can try these decks to continue climbing up the ladder.
