If you would like to know how to to build the perfect deck which will help you climb the leagues in no time but also beat the enemies with a lot of ease (but a tad bit of strategic thinking) then our Revolve8 deck building guide is going to show you how to do just that!
First thing you need to keep in mind is the deck types! There are 3 types of decks, which basically determine the type of play style you can have:
– Assault Decks: They are the most offensive type of decks, which rely basically on you taking down the enemies as quickly as possible and include normally a tank or two and the rest mostly aggressive (and sometimes) long ranged attacker minions and heroes.
– Counter Decks: These decks are mostly formed of defenders (tanky heroes) and quick chargers. The defenders will deal massive damage to incoming enemy units and will defend the own towers, as the name implies. The chargers will be used to take advantage of the gaps between spawns and charge towards the enemy towers to decimate them.
– Siege Decks: The Siege Decks are the ones that use sieging heroes (kinda obvious judging by the name!) such as Marksmen which will deal damage outside of the tower range and launch attacks from a distance, while other units such as guards and minions will try to keep them alive for as long as possible.
Make a combination of various card types for every type of deck!
That tip is a major one! You should know that if you have an Assault Deck, you don’t have to stick with just red (assault deck) heroes. You can add a couple of assault heroes, and a Counter one. Or a Siege one. It doesn’t have to be color-restricted and try using this to your advantage.
Learn the hero attacks
You should take your time and learn every hero’s attack because that way you will know how to intercept and react for every enemy that you encounter, but also how to strike back most efficiently.
There aren’t hundreds of heroes to keep track of, just a few! And even more so, not all of them will be used in all the games, so take your time and learn how each of them works because it’s going to help you a lot and you won’t be taken by surprise if a good ol’ Urashima Taro gets dropped on your squad and demolishes it.
Make a deck around the ink card cost
To deploy a card into the battlefield it’s going to cost you some ink. To have a good and easy time playing, try having an average of 3.5 ink, which can go up to a maximum of 4. This is going to be the easiest to deploy the right troops and the refill gauge will be OK.
If you will build a deck with an average ink cost of up to 4.5 it’s going to be a little tougher, but if you’re an experienced player, we’re sure you can pull off some good combos that way.
What should I always have in a deck?
There are a couple of must haves in every deck, so no matter the league and the cards you have, try taking these into consideration because you’re going to need them in order to be able to deal with any situation.
– Always, always have the maximum number of heroes in a deck! If you think that you can swap out a hero for a cheaper minion card or a building or so, don’t! The heroes are the most powerful cards, and the maximum number per deck is 4. So, in conclusion, always have 4 heroes!
– Use a good support card. I could say that Red Riding Hood could go in basically any deck, as she is a really good and versatile card. Even if she takes 1 hero card slot, you’ll find that it is very useful no matter the deck.
– Always have minions! Don’t neglect minion cards for a building or a spell. Their time will come, but in the meantime you’ll need cheap minion cards to be able to send out troops constantly and at a low ink price.
The best minions I like are the Crow Goblins, the Card Squad/Card Soldiers (lower ink cost than Card Squad) and the Red Ogres. The Fire Wisps and Honeybees are good later on, so try different minion combinations to see which ones you like best.
– Level up the cards constantly. Even if it sounds a little off, try to keep all of your cards leveled up. You might want to swap out a card for another later on, and you won’t want to have to wait until you level it up and so on. So whenever possible, level up!
It’s best if you prioritize the main cards that you use, and then the others, because like that you will keep a strong deck while empowering the other cards slowly (but surely).
– Pick a spell with low cooldown and high damage. That will help you deal with the incoming minion waves. Always keep it ready!
– Always try to balance the cards to have something for all the situations. Be it minions that are able to deal with single targets quickly or heroes that can demolish waves of minions, spells that can dissolve minion waves and tower shredding heroes, always try to adapt your deck according to its type, to the possible situations in the game.
– Keep an eye out for the best heroes and hero combinations. If you can use some heroes that synergize well, use them! You can find here our best hero picks for Revolve8.
