But as long as the Barb Hut is ready to roll, you can get a steady Elxir advantage from it. With Barbs as vanguards, Flying Machine and Cannon Cart can deal massive damage from behind. On the other hand, Magic Archer, Barb Barrel and Royal Ghost are 3 versatile cards can play defensively as well as offensively. During regular season week 9, this deck had a high use rate.
