Best Arena 5 Decks (Spell Valley)

best arena 5 decks

Arena 5 is the place where the fights really start to get tough, and you will see more and more opponents that actually have a plan for their game and don’t just deploy Cards in some way. The best thing you can do is playing a Deck with Cards you’re either familiar with or start getting familiar to. Beating Arena 5 isn’t that complicated if you have a good Deck you can play. In this post, I will show you 3 Decks which feature more or less Arena 5 Cards, but all of them are going to work.

If you’d rather build your own Deck I’d recommend you this guide on building a solid Deck yourself:

Arena 5 Decks That Will Make You Win

All of the following Decks are working good in Arena 5 and I wanted to make you different Decks – one for the beginner in Arena 5 who don’t have a lot of Arena 5 Cards and also some for those who have. All Decks are working and can be played through the complete Arena without any problems.

Arena 5 Deck – The Prince / Beginner Deck

This Deck features mostly Cards from the lower Arenas, with one exception the Wizard. If you don’t have the Wizard by now, you can substitute him with Archers.

This Deck is pretty easy to play, because you can defend very good with the low average Elixir costs and wait until your opponent makes a mistake and push back with the Prince.

How to play this Deck?

Your strategy with this Deck is always the same:

  1. Gather Elixir
  2. Defend
  3. If you opponent has no more Elixir left, you play the Prince and get to his Towers

The easy part of this Deck is that you will always wait until the opponent pushes at you and when he has no more Elixir, you play your Prince. This can get you a Tower in just a few seconds.

The Barbarians are working great against single troops with high damage; the Bomber is great against packs of troops.

Arena 5 Deck – Inferno Tower & Musketeers

This Deck is more for those having some proper higher Arena Cards. In Arena 5 you don’t necessarily need them, but if you have the Cards it’s a good idea to use them now to get to know them for the following Arenas.

How to play this Deck?

This Deck is designed to push yourself. Many Decks are designed to defend and then wait until your opponent makes a mistake. This works great in lower Arenas, but with this Deck you get used to a more progressive gameplay you will need to have to go the highers Arenas.

Here are the different moves you will do with this Deck:

  1. Defend with either the Inferno Tower or the Minion Horde and the Valkyrie against any kind of push your opponent makes
  2. Use either the Prince to push and support him with the Arrows, in case your opponent plays the Skeleton Army or the Musketeers along if your defense works good and you can start you own push

Your pushes will be very hard to defend, especially if you use your Freeze Spell. The Prince or the Musketeers deal so much damage that they only need a couple of seconds to get a Crown Tower down.

You should also practise this Deck against your Clan friends to get used to the high average Elixir costs – deployment timing is key and you should get a feeling for the Cards before you go into Trophy battles.

Arena 5 Deck – PEKKA & Lightning Spell

This Deck is an almighty Deck that can literally run over your opponent. Don’t be afraid of the high Elixir costs of the PEKKA; you need to get used to play expensive Elixir Cards sooner or later and it’s a great opportunity to do it in Arena 5.

How to play this Deck?

You will always play your PEKKA in a defensive manner and not open up the fight with her. The reason for that is that the PEKKA has very high costs and if you play this Card you will be out of additional Elixir while your opponent can counter the PEKKA.

If you play your PEKKA in defense situation along with the Bomber you will take out attacking troops and have enough health on your PEKKA left to push back. That’s the situation where you have gathered additional Elixir so you can play with either the Baby Dragon or the Wizard along and that’s a combination your opponent can’t stop!

right pekka gameplay

You will see how your opponent plays all Cards possible to stop the unstoppable. Your PEKKA and Baby Dragon/Wizard will take that Tower down and you will have saved enough Elixir to defend whatever’s coming next.

If your PEKKA is in good condition when reaching the Tower (about 50%), you might also think about playing your Lightning Spell on defensive troops to go directly to the King Tower.

This Deck is designed to get you a very fast 3 Star win and you will do that with this Deck if you play it that way.


You can beat Arena 5 in multiple ways, either with a simple Deck from the lower Arenas and let your opponent come to you until you gained your Elixir Advantage, or you start making the action yourself with a more progressive Deck. I really recommend switching to the second or third Deck during Arena 5 to get a feeling for these Cards and style of play, because you will need to do that in the later Arenas.

  1. good guide again!! I play clash royale tooo , the game is prettty goood I willl love if there a competition with the other clan I know it can’t be like clash of clans but maybe something new willl make things even better! !! just a suggestion:)

      • There are going to be clan tournaments. A friend of mine in high royale arena who i can trust told me that there was going to be a future update with tournaments and i think healers and haste spell.

  2. Nice guide Tim. I have had a lot of problems with arena 5, I keep jumping from 1400 trophies to 1600 trophies and it’s really hard to just stay in one place. I either do really good and win, win and win or I keep loosing. The deck I use now is a deck where you get the 1 crown and then you defend and defend till the time runs out. It’s a pretty good strategy because your opponent will have a hard time getting to your tower. It is also good against spawner decks. I am not going to reveal the deck’s cards, but I will say that I found it from a YouTube video.


    • I also made this experience that in Arena 5 you have some very solid opponents (I had the most breathtaking draws there with last second tower destruction) – or weird people spamming some expensive epic cards.
      Focus on defending works best in results and if you beat Arena 4 you can beat this as well – it only tikes some more matches

      • In arena 5 I have the weirdest opponents. I was level 5 when I got in, I faced a level 8 with level 4 epics (aka gemmer) and I immediately dropped out. But otherwise Arena 5 isn’t very hard. But a lot of people are too excited about mirror and a few other epic cards so they just drop them randomly…

      • I recommend trying to defend against gemmers, unless you have a clear chance to attack.

    • I hear rumors about an algorithm. I got this tip from someone i can trust in the higher levels of royale arena. The person stated that if you lose two times in a row, you should get on at a later time, maybe 8 hours??? It sorta works, because once i dropped to low barb bowl and i went on the next day. I got back up to spell valley.

    • well, if you use a minion horde on something, people will normally arrow it. Then maybe you mirror? That’s my prediction, because i dont own a mirror

      • If the other person has a wizzard, then you are going to be losing elixir advantage by three…. It’s not really effective except when you are doing like 12 princess friendly battle…
