Hello everyone! That’s me, Supermarine again here, with my tenth CRA guide! To celebrate this wonderful day, I have gathered friends and classmates to help me with my very first Ultimate Guide: The Ultimate Guide to Lava Hound!
He will explain all the things you can use with and against, some decks with him (or her), and more! First, let’s start with the basics.
Lava Hound is a legendary Arena 4 card with very high hit points that cost 7 Elixir. 19659002] When he dies, he divides himself into six littered lava puppies. These puppies have the same health as a Minion but only half the damage.

Lava Hound Treats Extremely
Hound is almost incapable of killing a troop or air targeting structure, but Pups can eliminate a wide variety of troops, including eWiz, archers, bats and even buildings. Executioner, as they are spread out!
Puppies are able to kill glass cannons in only 10 rounds, and as there are six, it will not take long before this annoying wizard, Infernal Dragon or eWiz is dead
They can be eliminated by most low damage spells, so keep them safe!
Since Lava Hound has high health points, you can use it as a tank for another aerial troop like a balloon or a dragon Inferno.
You can also use it as a second victory condition. Winning conditions or tanks for lava puppies will greatly help you get damage on the tower with the help of support spells.
Another viable but risky strategy is to make Lava Hound your main win and win one. or threat map, and increase the threat level of Lava Hound using spells.
When you play against Lava Hound, use an air-swarm to attack anything behind Hound, then use a tank killer to kill him.
Best cards to use with the lava dog:
These cards will benefit the most from the presence of the lava dog, or vice versa. Some like Miner do not combine well with the dog itself, but rather with the puppies. The cards that fly synergy the best with the hound
The Lava Dog Counters:
to eliminate the health of the dog very quickly, and can allow you to immediately attack anything that supports it.
Against the puppies:
 These cards can eliminate Hound pups fairly quickly, making them the best markers. Some cards like Knight can not target the Pups themselves, but instead allow you to buy more time for the Arena Tower to get them
Decks with Lava Hound
I’ll give a brief overview of each deck so you can learn to play them more effectively!
All of these items were posted on CRA before or tested by my classmates.
LavaLoon (by Ash)
We all know this one, do not you?
Here is the classic LavaLoon! Basically get the ball behind the dog with a little support, and combined with your spells, you are in gold! You also have Minions, Gang and Tombstone both for defense against Hogs or Rams or something like that.
Modified LavaLoon (by You Won!)
Made by You Won!, This LavaLoon is a little different.
Rather than using the fireball to kill swarms, you have the arrows. There is also a rocket rather than the most popular choice, Lightning, to kill Infernos or glass cannons like Musketeers.
You can replace the Arrows for Zap. I found it quite viable!
Raging LavaLoon (by Haru Cruz)
This variant of LavaLoon by Haru Cruz uses principles similar to those of the Classic LavaLoon, except that you have a Rage to elevate the
However, this was sacrificing the swarm, so to solve the swarm problem, Baby Dragon was added to help distribute them.
Most cards like Tombstone and Mega Minion stay in the deck because of their roles in the deck, who are tank killers
Airfecta (by Tag ™)
The original style Tag Airfecta!
Use the Dragon Inferno as a threat card to take the Tower! You have skeletons and a bandit for defense and pressure, as well as two non-destructive spells! Poison works great if you do not have your baby dragon in a cycle! Bandit allows you to shoot glass cannons attacking your Lava Hound or any of your Dragons.
Using Tower Health as a resource is usually a good idea, as long as you lose heavy tanks with Inferno Dragon as soon as possible
Airfecta v2 (by Supermarine)
The Modified Version from Tag’s Airfecta, made by me!
This Airfecta has a larger defensive ability than the original (Tag, if you are reading this, without wanting to offend you). We have the tombstone to empty the tanks, the guards to attack the support, and the infernal dragon to kill and defeat. Like the original version, Bandit can be used to snipe glass cannons attacking your Dog or Dragons.
Lava Hound Hound Hound ” width=”54″ height=”65″ />
This deck made by HEbarbian uses the Lava Hound and Miner As Victory Conditions, the Flying Machine is supposed to be a threat card that forces opponents to react
Miner Poison pushes work for the chip in Elixir simple, and if you can add in the Lava Pups also during Double Elixir, the opponent will be in big trouble!
In terms of defense, you’re still pretty solid, with the Skeleton Army, Mega Minion and Tesla inflicting heavy damage to tanks and mini tanks. Zap can be used for a clear swarm in defense or to reset an Inferno Tower / Dragon to attack
Raging Pups (by Haru Cruz)
Made by Haru Cruz, the Raging Pups deck has a similar principle to Raging LavaLoon, except that Pups are your only source of damage.
Skeleton Army is an excellent card to pair with this thrust, but only use it for counter-pumping.
Once Again, We Have the Baby Dragon (19659135) Lava Barrel (By Huncho Houndini)
Finally, a deck with the Barrel Skeleton! Made by Huncho Houndini, it falls on a control bridge, Miner, Skeleton Barrel and Lava Pups doing slow fleas.
Goblin Gang also works, but be sure not to use it too often in attack because it is your main swarm of defense. Simple Elixir is when most of the slow chip happens, and Double Elixir is when things go up. Lava puppies and skeleton skeletons can all be used with Miner to maximize damage. Against Infernos, use Zap.
Skeleton Barrel Airfecta (by Lolman)
Made by Lolman (you can call it Lmaoman or Rolfman), it’s the game of the week! It features Skeleton Barrel on Inferno Dragon, and retains the Miner and Baby Dragon.
Poison is used on Fireball for better synergy with Miner. You have Gang as the main swarm, and MM as a tank killer, but use them wisely because there is no definitive defensive building in the game!
