Can anyone give me a specific guide on how to bait out a spell and avoid splash damage with my very own sparky zap bait deck? I have giant, sparky, goblin barrel, mega minion, minion horde, arrow, zap and skeleton army.
This deck is extremely similar to your deck and might be something worth trying. (Your deck works fine too, just a suggestion) (Arrows are a decent substitute for zap as well)As for baiting out spells, the key is keeping track of spells. The highest level players are where they in part because they are very good at keeping track of card rotation. When you’re in a match, try to keep track of their win conditions and spells if you can. One thing that really helps is trying to figure out what they are playing before they show their win conditions.For example, if they play pump, and I see them play goblin gang, miner, minion horde, or anything that indicates they are playing three muskets, I will not rocket their pump, and instead rush their tower with mortar. When they have finished defending, I will hover tornado anticipation their musketeers so I can pull them into the same lane and play another defensive mortar.This is just an example of anticipation. This ties into the mindset you need to play a deck like this. If you can anticipate what they play next, you can make better decisions on what to play to counter, or make a prediction play.In the case of giant sparky, it’s biggest weakness is that it is not as good at applying immediate pressure, so make sure you only overextend on offense if you know they don’t have a counter. Otherwise you will have to deal with their counter push, but at least you have sparky to help with that, since that is really her specialty.A few general tips:dont play sparky on the bridge unless you absolutely know they can’t deal with it, OR you already have one on the field that can immeadiatly blast anything they play. If you do this, make sure you stagger the sparkies so that they can’t be both stunned at once.Use goblin barrel mainly to get rid of counters. Its damage is just a bonus, it is more important to bait out zaps, swarms, or other sparky counters.On the topic of goblin barrels, don’t wast your spell to get extra damage. Your spell is this deck should only be used to defend your tower or sparky.For your spell, zap or arrows, whichever you prefer, remember: it is okay to use them on defense, but remember your pushes won’t be as potent without the spell. Ideally, when you are ready to start a big push, try to defend with something else so you can support your sparky.Last tip: practice. Challenges are great for making tweaks to decks and just for practice. I also highly recommend watching tutorials on YouTube from people like CWA Mobile Gaming. You have no idea how much you can learn just from watching his interviews with pro players.Hope this helps! Sorry I was a bit long winded.
