About The Double Elixir Draft Challenge
You will be choosing between 2 cards, so one of these choices will go to your deck, the other card will go to your opponent’s deck – you do this 4 times and your opponent do that 4 times and then the battle starts.
After that, you will start the match and see Elixir regenerating twice as fast as normal.
Prizes for this challenge are crazy and you can win up to 550 Cards plus 136,000 Gold. No typo, it’s really that much!
Most of the Gold is within the one-time rewards you can unlock at several wins:
- 2 wins: 4,000 Gold
- 5 wins: 8,000 Gold
- 8 wins: 16,000 Gold
- 10 wins: 32,000 Gold
- 12 wins: 64,000 Gold
These are one-time rewards, so when you unlocked them and play the challenge again you’ll only be able to get those that you haven’t unlocked yet.
Along with the free entry, you should be able to get at least 12,000 Gold for free 🙂
Winning Strategies for the Double Elixir Draft Challenge
Now let’s talk some strategy. The whole challenge is pretty unpredictable because you have to play with the cards you choose and the ones you get, so the biggest part of your strategy happens when choosing your cards!
Choosing Your Cards
In general, it’s more about to prevent your opponent from getting good synergies than picking your favorite Cards! Tweet This
When picking cards, always keep in mind:
- Never give your opponent a hard counter (e.g. you have Graveyard so don’t give him the Poison Spell; you have Barbarians so don’t give him the Fireball etc.)
- Never give him good synergies! (s. picture below)
- Expensive Cards are extremely valuable due to double Elixir (try not to give your opponent cards like Three Musketeers, PEKKA, etc.)
In the end, you can’t control what cards you can choose from or what your opponent has chosen for himself – sometimes you might end up with a weird deck without any win condition and you have to try to defend at your best.
But always remember, your opponent can also be in that situation 🙂

Double Elixir Battle Tips
Now let’s talk about the battle.
Having a whole match in double Elixir Time brings a lot of changes to the whole game mechanic, it’s not just twice as fast!
DEFENDING IS KEY! Yes, you will have to be able to defend because there will be lots of strong pushes that can break through to your King’s Tower and make you lose very fast. Rushing full time against your opponent and see who can take down the King’s Tower faster might sound like fun, but it won’t get you many victories at all.
Attention! Be prepared to a fast starting push from your opponent. If you have bad starting cards that won’t let you defend, play them to cycle in some defensive cards. A first push can decide the game and you don’t want to lose the match within the first seconds!
I also said that you should try to choose the strong expensive cards if you have the possibility, so also be sure to play them right.
That means, build strong pushes instead of spamming troops all the time (I know it’s tempting with that much Elixir to do it, but it won’t help). You want to build up a push that your opponent can’t defend.
- Play Your PEKKA in the back
- Split your Three Musketeers
