In the new Mega Monk mode, you will face off against others in a troop spawner mode with a twist. The Mega Monk is a chunky monk that spawns on alternative sides of the arena and has a unique ability to deflect enemy projectiles and provide damage reduction to friendly troops.
We put together a list of the best Mega Monk Challenge decks that you can try to lead the arena and win the challenge.
Read on to learn more about each deck and how to use them effectively in the Mega Monk Challenge.
Best Mega Monk Challenge Decks
Let’s start by talking about the Monk’s strengths and weaknesses. The Monk is an important upgrade to any deck as a Champion card because of his capacity to deflect projectiles back to their origin and temporarily lower incoming damage by 80%.
He also has very high hitpoints, which means he can absorb a lot of damage and buy time for other troops to take out enemy units or Crown Towers.
Additionally, his third hit in his combo can knock back all ground troops, which is especially effective against slow troops with low damage outputs.
Meanwhile, due to the Monk’s limited damage output, he need the help of other troops to take out opposing units and towers. In certain cases, the additional Elixir required to use the ability may be an issue.
Finally, the Monk is susceptible to spells that bypass his protection and cause damage straight to him, such as Poison and Earthquake.
So, how can we best utilize the Monk in our decks? One strategy is to use him as a shield for other troops that are vulnerable to spells.
For example, pairing the Monk with cheap ranged units like the Firecracker can deny weak spells such as Arrows, and moderate-health units like the Electro Wizard or Zappies can be protected against Lightning and Poison.
Additionally, placing the Monk near an Elixir Collector, Sparky, or your Crown Tower can deny an incoming Rocket and its uninteractive “Rocket Cycle” strategy.
Another strategy is to use the Monk proactively, rather than reactively. Since it can be difficult to deploy the Monk and activate his ability in time to defend against spells like Rocket, it’s often better to use him to apply pressure on the opponent’s side of the field.
The Monk’s high hitpoints and knockback ability make him a strong force, especially when paired with other high-damage or glass cannon troops like the Prince or Mini P.E.K.K.A.
